There’s also one-bedroom beachfront suite with a separate living area. All rooms face south-east and have a private balcony or porch with views of the ocean.
Facilities include a temperature-controlled swimming pool, two tennis courts, a restaurant, and bar. Free wireless internet access is available throughout the resort. Coco Reef is known for its relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. General Manager Ken Watson is always around and is happy to personally assist guests.
