Wow what service! My son & now daughter-in-law were married at the resort on April 11/2012. A special thanks to John & Terrie who made sure that everything on the wedding day ran smoothly. Even the decorations matched the bridesmaids' dresses exactly. They had a steel drum band play right after the ceremony while guests ate appetizers & the wedding party had pictures taken. It was a smooth transition to dinner in a very private room by the ocean. It couldn't have been a better day! I even heard a comment from a couple of the guests that it was the nicest wedding that they'd ever attended. There were 38 people that came for the wedding.

There were lot of activities for the kids but if you wanted "adult time" there was an adult's only pool & bar right by the ocean. The best of both worlds. Food was very good & the staff were friendly. Rooms were clean, nothing fancy but everything you need.

Special arrangements were made our last night to seat everyone together at an outdoor barbecue & show. A nice ending to a great week. I highly recommend this resort if you are looking for an ideal wedding spot or just a great week away.

We have great memories of this resort. Its a little away from the action, but they make up for that by keeping things fresh and putting lots of energy into making sure you have a great time. It was booked as fully inclusive which i didnt really want as my previous experiences of this were poor. I am happy to say they were excellent. If there was a que for food or drinks someone saw to it and put another person to assist. And the food was good with a selection of local and european /american food on offer. The kids loved the deserts ( and so did i) and my dad loved the rum in the bar afterwards ( and so did I). The accomodation was a bit like a posh motel, clean and perfectlly functional, nothing fancy.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms had direct access to the gardens , pools and beach. always great for parents wit...

A large group of us went to Coconut Bay Resort for a wedding this past St. Patty's Day. The crew that worked there was amazing! They made sure ALL of our needs were met. John Leitao was a great operations manager, Chantel kept us bridesmaids AND groomsmen organized and Ritney kept us in the loop with where to be.
My favorite bartender was Terry- he hooked up the drinks all day and night. I highly recommend going to his bar first thing in the morning and asking him for "The Hangover Drink" No one knows what it is, but its a cure and its delish! Also, Yvevonne in the spa did an amazing job on my hair for the wedding.
The wedding was beautiful and I have to say, it was one of the BEST times I've had in a LONG time. The staff went above and beyond to make sure the bride and groom had a perfect day in paradise. I was drunk all day everyday... and I loved it! Everyone was really great and I highly recommend going to Coconut Bay Resort.

I went down to Coconut Bay in St Lucia with family & friends to get married. I have 2 young children and they both had a great time. There where lots of activities for my 3 1/2 year old to do. The water slides and lazy river was a great way to feel young & relax with a drink in hand. I would definitely bring my kids back here again. As for the main reason we all went down to St Lucia was for my husband & I to get married. Wow did they ever put my image for what I wanted to a reality. The day was absoluetly incredible and it was everything I had dreamed about. A big big thank you goes to Terrie & Chantel (wedding co-ordinators on site) & John (operations manager of the resort) for all of their hard work and doing whatever it took to make sure our day was perfect. I would recommend anyone to have their wedding at coconut bay. The food & service was amazing and with having such a large group come down with us (35 adults & 3 kids) they were able to put as all together one night for dinner. The outside themed BBQ night was by far the best evening for food & entertainment (besides the wedding of course). I would come back to this resort in the future for a family vacation :)

We just returned from a week at Coconut Bay.
Pros: the food was great, it varied everyday, at lunch between the outdoor BBQ and the indoor buffet they would have 4-5 different types of fish to choose from. That was a plus since the group I was with loved fresh fish. And if that didn't thrill you then you could eat at the beach grill which was also great. They don't "wow" you with ice sculptures, but the food was downright good. The two sit down restaurants we went to Calabash and Silks were great, Calabash being our top choice. We went there twice and loved it. The staff is so accommodating at the resort, when we went back to Calabash some of us ordered off the menu of Silks and they didn't care a bit. We never had an issue getting a reservation, and we had 13 people in our party.
There were plenty of bars and very little wait at any of them.
There was so much to do at CB, paintball, ping pong, billiards, Foosball water polo volleyball etc... we never ran out of things to do.
The main pool was fantastic. The swim up bar was the biggest I have ever seen, and there were many different places you could sit on one of the seats in the pool under a coconut tree in the shade, very relaxing.
And talk about relaxing, the Lazy River was a must everyday, and the slides were a lot of fun.
We never had any trouble finding chairs in the sun or shade at the pool or beach even if started the day late. I thought the chairs looked new, so I am not sure what other people were commenting on.
We asked for and got 4 rooms close together. The rooms were huge and very clean. AC worked great
The outdoor but undercover Blue Bar has sports on the two big flat screen TV's all day, which was great to watch the Europeans watching Soccer and Cricket and the Americans/Canadians watching Hockey and Baseball and everyone having a great time.
The wind was not a factor for us, we sat the beach everyday, the only issue with the wind is it does make the water a little rough. I did swim in the ocean everyday, but you usually need to go before 11am or after 3pm when the wind is less if you wanted to be able to swim out and see anything. There is snorkeling right off the beach, 50-100 yards, but you need to pick a time when the waves were small.
There is a nurse on duty from 9am-11pm everyday, free of charge. And the one we saw (Nesta) went well out of her way to help us out.
The Island of St Lucia is beautiful, I recommend taking a tour of it, thank you Angel for going well out of your way to help us set up some great tours before we arrived!!! Contact the adventure desk if you have questions, adventures@cbayresort.com

Cons: we did have to wait for our room when we arrived at 3:30 and so did another family traveling with us. It would be nice if they could prioritize cleaning the rooms for the guests arriving that day. However the beach grill is open all day so we just had lunch and started our vacation.
No sailing at the resort, but you can walk down the beach and pay for kitesurfing or windsurfing.
The drinks were very sugary, I would recommend they water down the fruit juices at the bar, but there were many fruit drinks we did love, and we especially loved the local beer Piton.
Over all I would highly recommend this resort. There are so many positive things about this resort I am not sure where some of the low ratings fit in. I suspect that people might think that since it is rated a 4.5 star on trip advisor that this a 4-5 star hotel? It clearly isn't a 5 star hotel, but for the money you get much more than a typical 3 star hotel and more than a lot of 4 star hotels.
