"Deluxe" room near parking lot?
CAROLE B.
Mar 14 2012
We found the restaurant staff very enjoyable and the breakfasts were quite good. The security staff was very competent and maid service was good. The beach is well maintained and there seemed to be adequate chairs and towels. My major complaint was the location of our room. It bordered the parking lot and the road noise at night provided continuous disruption and the client and staff traffic along the sidewalk near the room during the day resulted in very little privacy. We requested a room change on Sunday when the Apple Rep. was in the lobby and were first told that a different room would be available on Tuesday, but we would have to talk with the manager on Monday morning. The manager informed us that there were no rooms available, thus no change. The manager was quite unsympathetic. If that room is considered "deluxe" the resort needs to reassess this rating and Apple Vacations should insist that Apple clients not get this room. Room 213 is not deluxe.

This was my 2nd trip to CocoLaPalm. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I like this hotel because it's a small, intimate hotel where I feel comfortable and the beach is only a few steps away.

Another good stay BUT..........

We had a nice stay at Coco...but I have to say, the rooms are a bit shabby and really need an update. our first room 832: Bed was so lumpy and bumpy it was awful. The safe, even though it said locked, didn't work. Plus there was little to no wifi in the room. Our second room 804, also had no wi fi. There was no working electric outlet in the bathroom (and yes there was an outlet). Bed in is room was quite soft. The AC in both rooms was excellent! Breakfast was wonderful as always as was reggae night on Friday night. Raquel was an incredible server with with wonderful spirit!!! We really enjoy CoCo and hope they update the rooms soon.

Prioritize Your Needs before Booking --- Clean Comfort or Quality Food?

After staying at a number of all-inclusives (and finding the quality going down in recent years), we decided to try something new and more low-key. Coco LaPalm had enough good reviews that we decided to try it. The positives: We booked a junior suite, which although a bit worn, was roomy and satisfactory. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Nice balcony area with table, chairs, loungers, great view and accessibility to everything --- beach, restaurant, ice, pool --- not like the super clubs that make you walk far or need a golf cart to get to where you want to go. It was quiet and the shower was superb with plenty of hot water. Not being a pool person, we didn't try it til our last day and it was warm and not used by many. The grounds were lovely with a variety of flora and well kept as was the beach area (clean with plenty of lounge chairs). Most of the staff was pleasant and willing to go the extra mile to please. Security was good and we felt comfortable walking around and off the property, down 7 mile beach. Oh, and the massages on the beach were great and worth the price! The only major drawback is the lack of quality food. Similar to other reviews, the food/menu needs a major overhaul. Nice that they provide a continental breakfast (very fresh pastries and baked goods) and will credit you $5 if you decide you'd prefer something else off the breakfast menu (although I wouldn't recommend it. My husband was braver with scrambled eggs and meat but it still was of lackluster quality). Marley's Beach Bar and Grill offers lunch and although it was edible, it needs some refinement. While my husband had breakfast everyday, I opted for the Grill. After our first night's dinner which was nearly inedible (very salty soups that did not even resemble a bisque or pumpkin) and dried out small shrimps, we had dinner across the street every night thereafter. Oddly enough Coco LaPalm offers 24/7 room service at no-charge...but with their phones being out for several weeks, you cannot call to order room service. You have to order it at the restaurant and they they will deliver it to you. Truly, Coco LaPalm could up their profits and retain a lot of dining customers if they'd offer better quality food. The amenities were very, very basic --- aloe (which did help relieve sun burn), and 2 tiny bars of facial soap. The shampoo and shower gel were in a large, refillable container in the shower. So, if you need conditioner, a shower cap, tooth paste, Q-tips, lotion, etc. --- pack it yourself. Coffee was provided for the machine but being self-proclaimed Starbucks lovers, we could barely drink it (bitter and with powdered creamer). Yuck. We read some reviews that complained about the high cost of food and other items but we did not think it that bad (at least until you add the 10% service charges and 10% tax). Frankly, we thought the airport pricing was much more expensive than the goods at Coco LaPalm. For instance, a small bottle of water was $2 but the liter bottle was $3 which seemed reasonable and we were able to keep it in the fridge in our room. (A microwave would have been helpful as the coffee was never really hot in the little machine.) Bottom line, by the time they add the 10% tax plus 10% service charge, we cannot honestly say this room was worth the price --- it is a bit dated and could use some updating --- although you may not find anything else as suitable, and for us it was still preferable to the super all-inclusives. We were happy to not have long lines, crowded beaches with having to dash every morning for a beach chair, or having to make meal reservations. Coco La Pam was clean, comfortable and quiet but be prepared to eat elsewhere.

As a frequent visitor to Negril since 1995 I first stayed at Coco in 2016 and keep coming back whenever possible. We were always comfortable and felt at home! What is outstanding at Coco and making all the difference is the staff! From the reception, to porters, grounds men, maintenance, housekeeping, to the restaurant and bar teams! Coco is one of the places that seems busy even in slow season, but never felt overcrowded. Service and food are awesome. Any issues encountered were dealt with professionally! Can't wait to be back!

Great place to stay

Overall, my wife and I had a great trip and stay at Coco LaPalm's. The beach is beautiful and well taken care of by staff. There's plenty going on at Coco and the surrounding properties, so you won't be left wondering what to do and where to go to have fun. Our rooms were clean and the staff was always very friendly! My only two complaints of the place were the beds (they were super hard and uncomfortable for sleeping), and the drinks at the restaurant/bar (they were weak and not very good). Other than that, great place to stay and we will definitely be back next time we come in!

If you're not already staying there, don't go there

And that advice is concerning the restaurant; the food tasted good, but don't go there if you are hungry (the food takes at least one hour), don't expect to get service and you have to eat what you get (even if they mix up your order). And you really have to pay for all that 😊
