What a beautiful spot on a beautiful island! We arrived at night so we were unable to take in the beauty until the morning, but as the sun rose we were definitely happy we chose Cocotier! The patio had direct access to the beach and was literally 120 feet to the water. The condo has plenty of beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel equipment and other beach toys to entertain both the kids and adults. The gate to the beach needs to be lifted a bit to open, which was great because it kept our 2 year old from opening it himself and roaming the beach. The room was small (about 350 sqft) but was perfectly adequate for what we needed. We spent most of our time outside anyways!! Beach is very private with 15 people at most out there on any given day. Sometimes I even had the beach to myself!
Titi manages some of the units on the property and she is very nice and extremely helpful with anything you need. Many people on this part of the island speak French but most are able to communicate in English as well. Met some lovely people from all over the world. Our room didn't have a washing machine, but there is a small laundromat right outside of the gated complex which is very convenient. There is also a small market about 3 minutes (walking) away where you can get food, water, alcohol and toiletries. An 8 minute walk towards Marigot and on the docks is a wonderful breakfast and lunch spot called La Croissantarie. Try the forestiere crepe!!!!!!
The bed was comfortable and the AC worked great! There was an issue with the cable, but we just hooked up our computer and watched shows off of Amazon Prime. Wifi was very useful and had a great connection. We never used the pool but it looked very nice. Next door there is a hotel (Le Beach Hotel) and you can walk over from the beach and have drinks or dinner. There is also live music that is nice to hear while on the patio, but isn't too loud once you are inside. There is a vacuum in the room which helps when you start tracking in sand from the beach. Cocotier really has everything you need!
I really cannot wait to go back and enjoy this beautiful property again. Great price and an even greater location!!! Also, make sure to try out Tropicana (near La Croissantarie) for the best dinner on the island!
