Coconut Bay - They Try Hard
Posted Jan 5, 2017
My family just from a week long stay at Coconut Bay, that includes NY's. The NY Eve party was amazing with incredible food, entertainment, and fireworks.
This hotel is about 45 minutes to all the major attractions. (Voclano, sulfur springs, Pitons, snorkeling, etc..) The hotel offers several excursions to the attractions, but book them early because some of them are only offered on specific days, and fill up quickly. We booked a full day tour and did the sulfur springs, volcano, local lunch waterfall visit and snorkeling at Sugar Beach. It was a great way to see everything without booking individual tours different days.
The hotel is dated, and the bathrooms are horrible. Tiny, our window didn't work. Shower is a trickle, and we had to tape our shower head up because it kept falling off. The beds are incredibly uncomfortable and need to be replaced.
The hotel is well staffed, and most seemed eager and happy to help. There are activities planned all day/night, so there is always something to do if you choose to. The pools were clean, as well as the public restrooms.
Our kids (ages 8 & 10) enjoyed the 2 water slides. The lazy river is REALLY lazy, and a lot of it is in shade. The pool water was surprisingly cool, and the ocean was warmer than we anticipated.
A must know is that the beach is Atlantic side. The water is rough, and not "tropical". Perfect for boogie boarding (bring you own) and kite surfing (extra charges).
