Some 200 feet of waterfront is the main attraction at these side-by-side sister properties that offer a choice between smaller rooms and larger separate cottages. Coconut palms whisper in the breeze and gumbo-limbo trees shade the 2½-acre grounds. Nice features abound, like well-placed lounge chairs for gazing out over the water, and kayaks and paddleboats (for when you want to get closer). Everybody shows up on the sundeck or the 16-foot dock to watch the sun slip into
Davy Jones's Locker. The rooms are a bit tight but not without island character. Pale-yellow cottages are simply furnished. Ask for Unit 25 and 26, a two-bedroom villa that will give you extra space and a water view.

I stayed here a few years ago and greatly enjoyed it. It's a very calm and peaceful place, ideal for relaxing. The account of it given above is accurate but for one crucial thing: price. Current prices here have increased significantly since my visit and are now comparable to several $$$$ places on KL with a rather better standard of accommodation (e.g. the Azul). Given that it doesn't appear to have been modernised to any great extent then the value
for money is nowhere near as good as it was.

Coconut Bay Resort was a great place to stay, clean with waterfront cottages, outdoor pool. Well kept and great service. Quiet and accessable to everything! Free paddle boat and kayaks.Couldn't locate any manatees though.
