If You Want One Of The Top All-inclusive Honeymoon Resorts In The Caribbean Then Choose Cocos On Antigua

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

One of The Best Romantic Affordable Ideas in Antigua is Cocos, and in my opinion it has to be the top all-inclusive honeymoon destination resorts in the Caribbean. It is undoubtedly one of the more secluded romantic Caribbean resorts

The first thing to say is that it is vital you ensure you splash out a little and take at least a superior seaview cottage, if not a premium. The standard cottages are very noisy because of the road, and a neighbouring hotel, which they are close to, whereas the superior, and premium are up the hill, and round the corner. They have huge balconies, and spectacular views with king sized beds. Their main drawback is the uphill walk, and the fact that with no air conditioning you tend to leave the doors open, and let the mossies in, and the nets were not too efficient!!

My idea of an all-inclusive hotel is not what I found here at Cocos. I imagined a full on loud large resort, which must be terrible, but what we got was the most laid back relaxing small beautiful rustic Caribbean idyll.

The attention we got from the staff from the moment we arrived until we left was extraordinary, this has to be the friendliest most attentive hotel we have ever stayed in.

The biggest problem everyone in the hotel suffered from were the sand flies, so if you are going you will need 100% Deet spray, but that itself doesn?t protect you completely. Someone told us that they didn?t like sun tan oil and so we bought some, threw away our creams and lotions, and the combination seemed to work well.

Why therefore is this one of the top all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean?

The answer is a combination of things, but mainly the secluded romantic setting, plus the fantastic staff who couldn?t be faulted in any way at all.

Even the food which can be quite dire in the Caribbean, was quite superb, and we found plenty of choice, and when we did go a la carte it was extremely good value for money. We did enjoy the barbeque evening

I think though my favourite time was relaxing on a very comfortable sun lounger by the pool drinking cocktails brought by a happy smiling barman.

We will certainly return because we like to feel we have escaped from dreary 5 star hotels, and found authenticity, and this was just that.

Definitely Cocos is one of the most affordable romantic ideas in Antigua.
