This is now the second time my wife and I have stayed at Cocoview. It is not a luxury hotel with marble floors and mahogany beds. But it is the perfect Caribbean resort, tailored to divers. We have stayed twice now in over the water bungalows. Wonderful experience. Nothing like sitting on your porch and drinking coffee with the ocean under your feet. The food is great, the beer is cold and the people are friendly and inviting. You will not go home wishing you had more opportunities to dive. Two boats a day and all the shore diving you can squeeze into a day....or night. And the shore diving is more than I had expected. A couple of wrecks, reef heads and two wall dives that do not disappoint. We always see something that we have not seen before. And since this has been a protected area for quite a while, the sea life is not as fearful of divers. You can swim up to turtles and get great pictures. You can swim alongside reef squid who are just as curious of you as you are of them. We like many others will be returning over and over again. A truly wonderful location and an awesome place to stay and dive.

Room Tip: The over water bungalows are awesome. Right next to the restaurant and bar. You have a covered porch...

If you're a diver, you'll love the experience at Coco View! With two two-tank boat dives and unlimited shore diving, you get plenty of diving. You also get multiple chances to dive Coco View Wall, Newman's Wall, and Wreck of Prince Albert. The dive instructors are great at pointing out the smaller critters you might not notice. Diving is seamless here, so I can see why divers return multiple times. The rooms are simple and they provide you with plenty of filtered water in the room. The hammocks all around the resort are nice. The food is good and the drinks (alcoholic beverages) are great! They don't really have a beach you can relax on but they do have plenty of outdoor seating. The resort is on an island so it is secluded but you can use their kayaks for free to explore and they have excursions you can sign up for.

Waves Project took 26 Veterans and Volunteers to CoCo View to enjoy a week of diving and educational classes. The staff and Dive Masters were amazing and the entire trip went so smoothly! Everyone had an amazing time and our Vets had great dives.

Room Tip: The Cabins over the water were our favorite. All the rooms have air conditioning and great beds.

Not only is the diving great, the food and people are great too! The resort is on it's own little island off of Roatan, a 2 minute boat ride from shore. Shore diving is also very good, with a wreck about 40 ft down and about 5 minute dive from shore. I think this is one of my favorite dive resorts I've been to. The resort is spread out through out the island with bikes there to help you get around. We stayed about a 3 minute bike ride from the dive boat in a cottage that slept 6 or so. If your looking for 5 star accommodations with the newest buildings and spic and span places, this isn't it, but if you want an island get away with cozy cottages and the feeling of a tropical island getaway then this is the place. The staff always seemed to go the extra mile to help with anything you needed. Highly recommend this resort!

Stayed: November 2016

Coco View is a unique dive resort worthy of your attention. I thoroughly enjoyed the diving freedom they provided. You can do two two-tank boat dives per day and unlimited shore diving if you have the energy.

I stayed in an over-water cabana, which was terrific. Although you can't drink the tap water, safe water is provided in your room as well as the dining room. Although some amenities are missing like a pool, cable TV, AC in the dining room, it's still worth your time if you enjoy diving.

The dive boats are solid and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Although the food is Ok to good, the hunger generated from diving makes it better and you won't starve during your stay.

I strongly recommend reviewing their website thoroughly prior to booking, which was handled well by Kelly who answered the 800#. Also, read a bunch of reviews to identify the trends and themes. All in all, I would definitely return.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled solo
