"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.

It again for the eighth time was fantastic!

We had a terrific stay again at COC0. The restaurant food has improved 1000%!! If you have a pet, take a colored photo of them and ask Donavon (he has a wood carving stand right on the resort) to show you what he can make out of wood to an exact replica. He can make it in three days and does it for somewhere between $US100 and $US 120. You will be amazed when you see his work!!

Heading back for our 4th time!

This is our 2nd review for this hotel. We have not had been exposed to un-refurbished rooms we have read about from other guests and we haven't witnessed these rooms from where we have been situated in the resort. Meals are on what we would call average, not great but always more than sufficient. Breakfast is usually our favorite. The rooms we have been exposed to in the 600 block are clean and updated as one might expect in a moderately priced resort. We are smokers and have been given a room with a small patio which is a wonderful bonus for us, though all rooms in that block do not have such patios. If you do smoke you may want to request such a room in advance. Maid service is to be commended. Rooms were cleaned early enough so that when you returned from the beach in the afternoon you weren't waiting for your room to be cleaned. From the front desk to maintenance, porter services and security not a single person dropped the ball. The hotel owners should be proud of their staff. Security at the front of the hotel stops traffic and assists guests across the road, which was super important especially when you are travelling with seniors and children, seniors in our case. Transportation is at a moments request due to the fact they have a small cadre of taxi's available on the property...and reasonably priced I might add. If I have one complaint...and this is one you can easily avoid is the beach bar. I didn't complain or argue with them but a number of occasions when I purchased drinks there the price would change on say a bottle of beer. Another example was I purchased Pina Colada's at the beach bar at one price and the restaurant bar at a lower price, unless of course the beach bar is a vendor of the hotel. Didn't ask, didn't care, we just didn't purchase there after a few days. We will return again to this property in future visits.

Reasonably priced mid-range hotel in a good location

We stayed here during Christmas week and it was our 2nd time to Negril and 1st time to the resort. Overall a great place to stay with a few setbacks, but we would definitely stay here again. We had a Coco suite in the main building, with a huge patio with a view of the beach. I'm glad we were on the side of the building as we could still see the water without hearing as much noise as we would have had we stayed in a room directly facing the beach. The staff were great, checking us in 1 hour early, which I appreciated after a long travel time, and calling local restaurants for dinner reservations and hooking us up with taxis. The restaurant is good - we ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn't want to stay at an all inclusive, but wanted a place where you have just enough of want you need - gift shop, salon, bar, restaurant, beach hut with equipment rentals & outdoor massage and other beauty services. The resort is immaculate and well-landscaped, and everyone was so friendly, always asking us if we needed anything. It also seemed more lively in terms of guest traffic than other places close to us - maybe because it was Christmas week, but there were always people at the bar and restaurant without being crowded, which I like. Setbacks were being charged $6 for 2 Red Stripes that I did not order, and the server insisting to my husband that I ordered them when he was paying the bill without me there to dispute it, the hot tub not working, and the towels and sheets being of poor quality. I can live with scratchy towels, but sheets that you spend 8 hours on should also not be scratchy. I also wish they had nicer toiletries, not just small bottles of aloe and a cheap dispenser for soap and shampoo like you would find at the gym.

Poor older rooms and front desk service

You may find yourself about one notch away from a dump if you end up stuck with an un-refurbished room. I must say that I was extremely disappointed and irritated with this hotel and their handling of my room. Upon entering the room, I was hit with a moist, moldy odor. My asthma is triggered by allergies to things like mild & mildew, so this was not a good sign especially since I was there to run a half marathon. We later learned that our friends who arrived after us insisted on being moved to a new room because their first one was of poor quality like ours was. I should add that they checked in two hours later than us and pushed the issue (by enlisting the help of someone with “connections” with the hotel) which resulted in them being moved to a nicer remodeled room. When we asked, they said they couldn’t change our room because they were completely booked. After trying to deal with the fact that we were stuck in one of the awful older rooms, I got in the shower to find that the water pressure sucked and the towels were quite thin, small and cheap. The soap dispenser in the shower was rusty and barely worked and the shower titles were dingy. Bring your own body soap, shampoo, and lotion (they only provide an aloe gel rather than lotion). There was a short window in the shower with a curtain too short to cover the opening. I could literally see well the 2nd floor balcony of the building across from my room from the bottom of the curtain. That means anyone there can see you in the shower if they tried! Most surprising was that the closet was IN the bathroom, ironing board and all. I didn’t like all of the moisture from the shower getting into my luggage and clothing, but that was the poor setup of my room. The a/c was blowing right over my area of the bed, making it uncomfortable. The placement could have been better, and the layout of the furniture in the room was poor overall as well. The pool had a lot of foliage floating on top one day, but it looked clean later on. The curtains do not block our light, so it is too bright in the room after sunrise for sleeping in late. Bring a sleeping mask. Service at the hotel’s restaurant was typical. In Jamaica, people take their time and sometimes that means they will be slow serving you. For breakfast, a continental basket of pastries is provided, or you can order from the menu for pay (with a $5USD) credit. As for money, the US dollar is preferred, so there is never a need to exchange money unless you want to exchange your Jamaican dollars back before leaving. While you may pay for things in USD, change will usually be given in Jamaican dollars. The restaurant and beach staff are pretty nice, and the small restaurant (Best in the West) across the street has cheap and better, authentic Jamaican food. Don’t let the appearance affect your decision to have a meal there. It was there that I got my only “real” Jamaican food fix. The beach area is small and sufficient, and I liked that there was plenty of shade provided by the trees. The water at the beach was clear, shallow and just AWESOME. If you don’t care much at all about your room, or if you can ensure that you get a remodeled room, I think you would enjoy the stay here. I rated this hotel lower because of the moldy room I received and the fact that they kept telling me no remodeled rooms were available, when I confirmed with two other groups that they got their rooms changed out on my first day there and on my second day there (they also said they had nothing available the second day, when they did). So, two stars for the moldy dingy rooms that have not been remodeled and for staff that were totally untruthful about the availability of better quality rooms. Make SURE you reserve a remodeled room!!! Seven Mile beach is lovely regardless.
