My husband, mother and I went to CoCo View in August 2017. My husband and I dive but my mother does not. She had a wonderful time relaxing all week while we went diving.
The place really caters to divers. They have four scheduled dives per day and unlimited shore diving. The dive masters are excellent. They are very good at finding and pointing out sea life such as sea horses, nudibranch, etc. They really take care of you on the boat, helping everyone on and off for the dives, handing off cameras, changing tanks, providing fruit between dives. The shore dives are each to navigate and there is a lot to see. There are lockers right next to the boats so you can rinse and store your gear. They will load it on the boat and set everything up for the next boat dive.
We stayed in one of the over water duplex bungalows. They are very spacious with plenty of surface areas for cameras and equipment. There is hot water, reliable air conditioning and plenty of fresh drinking water. My only complaint would be that the balcony door is frosted glass. I would prefer regular glass and a curtain so we would have the option to see out. There was a nice eagle ray who hung out a lot by our place and that was really fun too.
The food is buffet style but with a decent selection and it tasted good. The guests do keep to the schedule so don't be too late to dinner. The food will be ready but taken away for dessert shortly after. The restaurant is not air conditioned and can get pretty warm so try to sit under a fan.
There is a nurse on staff who is a life saver. My husband had some ear issues and only ultimately missed one day of diving thanks to her car and excellent advice.
All in all it was a great vacation. I would definitely recommend the place to others. Everyone was friendly and the staff is attentive but also laid back. Can't wait to go back.
