2 nights at Coco Beach Resort (November 2019)
Opinión escrita el 30 de Novembre de 2019
A very decent place, ideal to use as a hub to explore Marie-Galante, certainly value for money. The breakfast is nice, with a personal touch, and during your stay at the resort you will always have this beautiful view over the sea, which is only a few metres away. If the pool would not be there, the waves would be at your doorstep. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Coco Beach Resort. Thanks to the hospitality, helpfulness, and service with a big smile. Any issues we had were properly addressed, language barrier or not. In preparation for the high season there is still some work in progress but staff was working hard to get things sorted (e.g. wifi in the room, make more sockets available in the room).

A quiet place with a wonderful view. An excellent swimming pool and jacuzzi. Beautiful large rooms an bathrooms . It seems to stay on a boat because it is straight over the see. If you consider that the hurricane Maria passed only three months before our stay, they have done miracles ! Our congratulations to the property
Looks like paradise but beware

The views from the hotel terrace are just as shown on the hotel website. It really is that beautiful but all is not as it seems.
You really do need a car but don't let the hotel get you one. The one we had was a wreck.
You need to be quick for breakfast as what is on offer goes quickly.
We had only a hand held shower in our bathroom and no hair dryer.
No tea/coffee facilities in room and nothing available in the hotel apart from at breakfast time.
Hotel effectively abandoned for 12 hours between 7 and 7.
Security poor. Our room was broken into during a 2 hour period when we went for dinner. Many items stolen.
An information sheet left in the room advising of high crime in the areas would have been useful.
Hotel is on a very thin piece of land between coast road and sea, so lots of road noise all night and also it was easy to see from a drive by if anyone was in the hotel.
awesome with private caribbean beach

Arriving at the hotel we were asked to pay in full the room booked for 4 nights on internet and for which a down-payment had already been cashed. We discovered later, from people in the village, many guests used to leave before the end of their stay ! Let me tell you why.
The room, furnished with twin beds as requested, was spacious and clean and looked out over the pool and sea as advertised, but no complimentary shower gel or shampoo, just two miniature bars of soap (one already cracked into several pieces in its wrapping). We were told that this was normal and she told us where to buy whatever we needed. There is also no plug in the bathroom and, of course, no hairdryer.
There was, however, a refrigerator in the room (empty) and a can of mosquito repellent. She left us to unpack, unfortunately forgetting as she did so to leave us the door key. She also forgot, as we later found out, to let us know that the hotel offered its clients on their arrival, a complimentary pre-dinner drink.
Breakfast is served at 7h30 am and, having read the reviews prior to our arrival, we made every effort to arrive as early as possible to enjoy the fresh fruit available to early risers. Breakfast is self service -- you take a tray and carry it out to the table in front of your room – but firstly, the trays are enormous and heavy, the breakfast plates are huge dinner plates (no hot meal provided)and also weigh as much as the tray, the glasses for juice are also huge and heavy; there is no place to set down your tray, before proceeding across from the table (no buffet arrangement) to pour yourself a cup of coffee. When my husband suggested to the lady member of staff who was busy doing very little but at least present, that a table might in future be a good idea, he was told that the room was too small - he pointed out the space by the entrance door that was more than adequate but the subject was obviously of little interest. Those suffering from arthritis are warned !
It is hotel policy that bed sheets are changed every 3 days. There is, in fact, a notice pinned next to the reception to this effect, but we never imagined that this also meant that the room was not cleaned for the duration.
Having booked for 4 nights we found it ridiculous to have our room serviced one day before check out so my husband requested, on the afternoon of the third day, claiming that the hotel was on its way to losing its third star, that we needed, at least, the tiny waste bin in the bathroom (no other wastepaper basket available) emptied and the sheets changed. A cleaner arrived soon afterwards and did the bare necessities but our towels were never changed and the shower stall and toilet never cleaned.
When we left at 9 am, nobody appeared at reception for checkout. Why should anyone? Apparently, the hotel is always full whatever the season and having received the full amount upon arrival, why bother to see the client off when he leaves?
For what it’s worth we came across another 3 star hotel within 20 minutes drive and which, although not directly on the beach, afforded a 180° view of the sea, had a “proper” restaurant (not a kiosk on the beach), bar and seating area, reception desk fully staffed and a swimming pool whose liner was firmly in place. More of a 3 star "resort" than Coco Beach !
