Cocolobo is the Latin name for the seagrape tree. The hotel is located in an area of West End known as Seagrape Plantation for the abundance of these trees.
The group of lodges was designed in 2005 by an award-winning young British environmental architect. Full advantage has been taken of local building materials, skills and knowledge.
Honey-colored Honduran pine is used throughout for construction, complemented by local hardwoods for doors, furniture and trim. Enjoy the natural light breezes that are characteristic of the island. "Breezeways" between the rooms in the east and west lodges channel air into the bedrooms.
The east and west lodges house four bedrooms apiece. Guest rooms are spacious and uncluttered, with closets, storage space and refrigerator. Floors and ceilings are wooden and furnishings are in high quality cottons and natural fabrics. All rooms have flat screen televisions and cable connections, and there is free wi-fi available. Do bring your i-Pod: rooms have speakers supplied so you can enjoy your favorite music!
Between the lodges lies the central building, with just two bedrooms overlooking the pool and the Caribbean. The bar - which has slide-back doors on three sides to take full advantage of the climate and the views - is where breakfast is served from 7.30am to 9.30am. In the afternoon and evening, the bar and deck provide the gathering point for guests and early evening cocktails.
