Once upon a time, your grandparents chose vacation destinations for reasons that likely don’t resonate with you! Travel was slower. And unless you received a recommendation from Aunt Sue about her experience, you had to rely upon luck. Happily, journalists and bloggers came along, posting observations that detailed properties down to the minutest detail—until consumer reviews came along! Since then, nothing has been the same.
Hotels and resorts eager to give travelers the real dish on their properties welcomed consumer reviews. Says Mandy Yoh of ReviewTrackers, “People are more likely to trust a complete stranger because they see that reviewer as a peer like they’re in it together.” Further, 73% of folks surveyed by MarketWatch trust written comments over stars—especially when those reviews are published by Tripadvisor. You probably agree.
This island in the sun deserves its own fan club!
Coco Plum Island Resort staff isn’t shy about pointing to the number of excellent reviews the resort regularly receives because they work hard to keep them coming. This palm tree-studded sliver of land surrounded by Caribbean waters is a 16-acre oasis where hammocks, lounge chairs, and beach beds offer guests various places from which to take in the serenity of the island.
With just 18 cabanas on the island, this adults-only haven is designed with romantics in mind. Don’t believe us? Visit Coco Plum’s website, but don’t take our word for it. These reviews say it all:
•Everything may be bigger in Texas, but according to Coco Plum guests from the Lone Star State, this resort is better. “This was our 4th trip…and we ha[d] a fantastic time!” Indulging in gourmet dining, couples massages, and water sports overload via the Belize Barrier Reef, this couple remains enamored and will return.
•A Rhode Island couple urges couples to “Believe the hype; Coco Plum is everything you read here on reviews and MORE.” This couple called staff, “The heart and soul of Coco Plum,” and add, “All of the food was nothing short of delicious…hands down the best vacation either of us has ever been on.”
•One California couple’s ultra-long review raved about all aspects of the diving scene, complimenting both the dive instructor and boat crew. “Total VIP experience!” they enthused, reason enough to follow their lead no matter where you originate.
You’ll be eager to describe your own visit as soon as you get home

Best of all, the all-inclusive package relieves couples of having to make a single decision during their time on the island.
