Cocobay is a small, pretty property with the most stunning views, especially from the infinity pool. With accommodation in traditional Caribbean cottages, a small spa and an all-inclusive package which includes great food, the resort offers excellent value for money. Sheer Rocks restaurant is also well worth visiting for the setting alone, with tables positioned on a wooden terrace overlooking the rocks below.
As I wandered around the resort I was constantly in awe of the breathtaking views over the white sand beaches and turquoise sea – I would definitely recommend Cocobay to couples who are looking for somewhere picturesque and romantic with a feeling of rustic luxury.
