We have never had a vacation experience where the special personal attention and service made such a dramatic impact on our experience. Arie, the owner of the resort, greeted us immediately when we arrived from the airport, personally took our bags and showed us into our room, and then invited us to the bar for a complimentary cocktail. He explained that after we had a chance to unwind, we could stop by to take care of the paperwork. At that moment we knew we were in for a special vacation.
All of the rooms, facilities, meals, and services reflected Arie’s personal attention. He helped serve breakfast each morning and greeted all of the guests personally at dinner each night. Nothing can compare to the personal attention of the owner to ensure complete customer satisfaction, and Arie personally saw to the comfort of his guests.
We opted for the generous meal plan, but with some skepticism. We had bad experiences with "all inclusive" food in Mexico, and we hesitated to repeat that adventure. As my first tasty lobster tail arrived (after crab cakes, and before a delicious key lime pie), my worries about the meal plan disappeared. We enjoyed steaks, pork tenderloin stuffed with crab meat, lobster tails, seared ahi tuna, and many other perfectly prepared dishes.
We purchased a scuba diving package with Divetech, which has a shop on the resort premises. The Cobalt Coast Resort caters to the needs of scuba divers, and would be a perfect choice for your dive vacation.
When we left, I was somewhat fearful of the bill we would face. After all, we had indulged ourselves over six days and five nights. When we went to check out, we were delighted to find that the Cobalt Coast’s claim of "no hidden charges" means "no hidden charges." There was a modest $3.00 surcharge for the lobster tails, and a few drinks, but nothing unexpected. We definitely received more than fair value from Cobalt Coast. I have never felt such a keen desire to repeat a vacation experience.
