"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.

Coco la palm fun vacation but not a relaxing vacation

Coco lapalm resort is very welcoming. The staff starting from the front desk bell boy housekeeping kitchen staff to the bartenders security and life guards are wonderful warm and friendly. There was four of us that travelled. Our rooms were 411 and 423. Rooms were good size and clean. The beds were a bit to soft. Bring it own toiletry. There are some in the room but mini size. Oh no tissues what so ever. Needed to blow it nose use toilet paper. Our package in cluded breakfast. That was good. If u want to upgrade they will deduct 5 dollars off. We ate breakfast at coco but also tried idle awhile resort for breakfast just for a change. Food was also amazing. The view at both place was so relaxing. Both place facing the ocean. Now for the beach. The sand is soft and white. It was also well maintained. We happen to be in negril on their slow season. Even though there were people around some of the resort's along 7 mile were completely empty. I have been to Jamaica several times and the husslers on the beach were nice enough to keep walking when u say no thank you. Well this time around they were very aggressive and rude. Some even swore at us in their language . I totally understand that they have to eat too. But maybe if they would have better customer service skills and speak to people with respect maybe they would get further. It was annoying that all day long they would walk up and down the beAch. U were not able to enjoy walking along 7 mile beach without having these husslers walking along with u. We all work hard and when we go on Vacation to negril u just would like to relax. It felt like we were expected to buy things cause they would throw. Comments like u have money it staying at a nice resort with food and drinks. U can buy something. There was Times when we bought things but that was by my choice. The other husslers would come up to u for then for u to buy something off of them. Annoying. This part of our vacation was very annoying. And not relaxing . Negril would be nicer without the husslers. I would not return. We had dinner at the rockhouse and at ivans both 5 stars. Food was amazing a bit on the pricey side. Bestjerk chicken across the street from coco. Another thing that annoyed me which really isn't a big deal but was somewhat rude was one afternoon we were going across th street for some jerk chicken an it was pouring rain no big deal it was warm water. The guard was sitting in her booth I asked if she can help us cross over cause they drive fast and crazy. She said its raining and I said yes so what. She was just being lazy sitting having her soup. That was rude. We ended crossing on our own. Lunch and dinner at coco was very good. Prices are reasonable .Taxi service is 15 per person one way. Pricey. We did the catamaran boat trip to the caves and to nd cafe. Money well spend . The Excursion was relaxing great music all u can drink and a jerk hicken rice and beans meal. E,excellent. The weather was hit just threat I like. It rained one day for 45 minutes after that it was sunny and hot. Over all it was a very enjoyable vacation lots to do. Get rid of the husslers and it would be paradise. o

Clean and friendly

We stayed here with friends who have been coming for many years. I can see why they have been so loyal to this place. Wonderful location, beautiful beaches, friendly service and security attentive but approachable. Recommend rooms 733 or 732. Shout out to Dean with security, Steve who set our chairs up daily and the gentleman who worked on his days off. Shirley and Donna who work at Marley's , Hazel who cleans our messy rooms each day. Sorry if I left anyone out. TV remote didn't work but we didn't watch it but a few minutes each night. Beds were a little firm for me but that's the only negatives. Happy hour- 2-4-1 specials!!!!! Awesome

A wonderful stay! Coco is like home away from home in Jamaica. If you want a good location on the beach, with a warm and friendly staff, great food, great security, neat and very clean and a fun atmosphere -- stay at Coco LaPalm. I have stayed at several resorts and all inclusive resorts in Negril over the past 20 years and once I stayed at Coco I never went back to the others. Coco still has the same furniture, decor, no fancy updates, a few new additions and modifications but most important it has that real Jamaica flavor and you'll have a great time!. Try Coco!

Spring break love!

Sorry for taking so long to review! We stayed at coco la palm in March 2018. Our family has been traveling to Jamaica since 1999, many times, many resorts. But this was our first non AI & our sons first stay on long bay. Everyone agreed that we do not care to stay anywhere else again. You just cannot Beat this stretch of beach! The people are lovely, the rooms are not fancy but have everything you need. (The aloe Vera gel is a very useful touch!) If you want to make your maid very happy, tip with chocolate! We had a 2 bed, 2 bath suite with a kitchen/living area. It was perfect for our family & gave us privacy & the kids space. The breakfast is amazing & such a value even if you upgrade. So much food for $5, you will be full until it’s time for lunch patties ;) We went to several different places to eat dinner & I know we will continue to do that because we like to be out & about but honestly the tastiest meals were right from coco! This is the best location! You can walk in either direction for fun or just sit all day & relax. We just got home from Punta Cana & let me tell you...a lot of places have beaches & sunshine...but there is NO PLACE LIKE JAMAICA! ~one love, one heart~ Currently planning our next stay here :)

We spent 4 nights at Cocoa La Palm this month and it was sadly not even average. Rooms were tired, drains smelt and the food was pretty greasy sadly. On the plus side the location was excellent - right on the beach and very central on seven mile beach. The staff were a mixed bag. Some were very helpful but on balance there was quite a defensive feel. This surprised us as over our two weeks in Jamaica the highlight had been how wonderful the people were. This resort really needs some basic investment if it wants to shine. They do seem to get lots of repeat business looking at other reviews so perhaps it’s just a short term blip. As it stands it really doesn’t feel family friendly. Quite disappointing really. Shame
