結論から言うと「行かないほうがいい」の一言。 〈よかった点〉 ・ツアーではなくレンタカーで行きました。 ホテルから約40分ほど。道は基本的に1本道ですごくわかりやすい。 ・9月末に行ったのでほぼ貸し切り状態。30人くらいしかいなかった。 ・ビーチバレーのコートがあった（糞尿まみれだったけど） 〈悪かった点〉 ・てっきり沖縄の離島のような青い海に白いビーチを想像していた。しかし水は透明だが青い海ではなく若干薄茶の水。ビーチは岩サンゴだらけで裸足で歩けない。寝そべることもできない。ビーチバレーなんてしたら転んで血だらけ。危険。 ・スタッフが中途半端に日本語を話し、誤った情報を伝えてくる。むしろ英語だけの方が分かりやすかった。 ・全てがクーポン。これが一番の苦痛。ツアーでなかったため1つ1つクーポンを買わなければならなかった。（例えば先に50ドルだけクーポンに変えて金券のように使うのではなく、ラーメン屋の券売機のように欲しいものの券を逐一買うイメージ） これが本当に苦痛。レジが1つしかなくカードをきるのに5分近くかかるから長蛇の列。 ・プールが汚水。濁った白濁水。 ・食事はカップ麺と冷凍食品のフランクフルトのみ。（その日は客が少ないからハンバーガー屋が閉まっていて、しょぼい売店しか空いていなかった） まとめると想像するような離島の美しい海ではなく、汚い水と最悪なサービス。行かないでタモンで泳いだ方が良い！
Ferry workers, jet ski and buggy workers are all really nice and go out of their way to help you have a good time. Had a blast on the buggy and banana boat. Other staff, especially the front desk are rude, grumpy, don't care about you at all. We had fun on our activities, but sometimes felt like they didn't want us here. Closed early due to low business, but didn't tell us until after we arrived and paid. Beautiful location, poor upkeep and maintenance. Ultimately the grumpy vibes killed the experience for me. Hire someone who loves their job.
Like other reviewers, we had been intrigued with Cocos Island for quite a while. They have a very poor online presence and the tripadvisor reviews were old. I am writing this one in hopes that it may help others understand how we got there and what to expect if you go any time in the near future. We had a fun day with the neighbor, Bikini Beach Club, doing all sorts of water sports. They mention time spent on the "beach" which we thought was Cocos Island beach. What they meant was their shore chairs near their boat ramp in Merizo. It is a cute place to wait for your next water activity, but not the white sandy beach we had imagined.... My husband was determined to get to Cocos Island. After our very active day at BBC, we walked over to the abandoned looking ticket stand of Cocos Island Resort. No times of ferry departure were posted, a price of $40.00 per adult indicated a round trip. My husband made enough noise, that an employee eventually came out of a door (the ticket window never opened). This kind gentleman told us all we needed to know: The ferry left to the island at 9AM for staff, 10AM, 11AM, 12PM, 1PM, 2PM (give or take 30 to 45 minutes) The return trips start at around 11AM until 3PM... There are brochures, but they are out of date. They were out of English ones at the boarding location. This helps set your mentality for the rest of the day. Be prepared to be on "Island Time". If you can't adjust to being easy going and relaxed, this may not be the experience for you. Early the next morning, we drove the long way from Tamuning via Jeff's Pirates Cove for a really, really good $8.00 breakfast. We loved it there so much, we lingered and missed the 9AM staff boat that we were hoping to take. We arrived at Cocos Island Resort parking lot (very ample and across the street) at about 9:45. Another group was there already talking to an employee standing under the arch entryway to their boat dock. We waited a few minutes and put our name on the list. It was explained to us that we would pay for everything on Cocos Island at the ticket kiosk ... including ferry. After a bus from the hotels arrived, our ferry departed around 10:45. It was a lovely ride of about 10-15 minutes. Upon docking, we hiked to the welcome center. At this place we stood in line again (it reminded me of customs) to pay for our activities. You are encouraged to pay for everything at once, but we chose to only purchase chair rental at $5 each. We also were required to indicate our planned departure time so it could be put on the chart. There are many water sports to participate in like jet skiing, but we did not opt for that. We didn't opt for the lockers either. We hiked down to the beach cabana where we collected our chairs. The young man helped us set them up and sprinkled some sand from a bucket in my palm so I could look for star sand. There were also floats, snorkel gear, etc available. Around the corner, you could get snack foods like hamburgers, fries, soft drinks, and beer. HOWEVER, all money transactions are done at the welcome center. At lunch time, we checked out the buffet. It looked good, but we were tired of Chamorro BBQ so we hiked to the welcome center and purchased tickets for burgers, fries, drinks.... They were well prepared and generous. (Bringing your own food is not allowed.) I enjoyed my day sun bathing, bird watching, and snorkeling. I never left the dock side of the island. Hundreds of birds were roosting in the area and it smelled like it. I was OK with that. The snorkeling was not exciting. The water was shallow and more for cooling off and floating than anything else. It felt very safe and would be excellent for children. My husband, who is a hiker, set off on the nature trails to see what he could see. He saw spotted monitor lizards and a rail. He quickly hiked to the desolate rocky shore on the other side. He never passed another person on his hikes. He had no trouble doing all the trails. He wanted to hike around the island on the shore, but decided it was too rocky. Considering the rocks here it was a wise decision. He stopped in at the pool and said it was refreshing. The resort is in a surreal state. It was once top notch. And now, only a little of it's former glory remains for casual beach goers. Once people could sleep here but two windy typhoons and depleted resources have ended that. Now, one must vacate on the last boat or before. We knew what to expect so we were not disappointed. For us, it was a very good day. 2 round trip boat rides- $80, 2 beach chairs- $10, 2 hamburger lunches- $40…
ウェスティングアムからバスに1時間近く乗り更に船に乗り換え10分ココス島に到着。 ココス島到着後は、受付でまず利用アクティビティごとの料金を支払いチケットを購入、その後アクティビティごとの開始時間を予約。 今回は初めてシーウォーカーに挑戦してみました。 料金は、ちょっと高めの大人1人80ドルでしたが、すごく多くの熱帯魚がすぐ近くを泳ぐ姿が見れたし、餌を手に乗せてもらったので手のひらに魚のパクパクしてる口の感触が伝わったりして、とてもプライスレスなひと時でした。
我们一直住在关岛2 1/2年了,而且我们都已经准备好要很快离开了。 每次我们开车绕着岛的南端,我们好奇地过这小岛几英里的离岛的,所以我们就想至少要检查它在我们离开之前的议案。 基于网上的评论。 我已经保持了太高的期望,所以没什么惊喜。 如果你在关岛较长的时间,这是一个值得一次退房"从列表中检查"。 如果你要在这里呆一段时间。 我不会在这里。 正如其他人所说,这里的"酒店"是最重要的部分是条件相当糟糕。 有一个小的额外投资的地方,事实上很棒和另一个级别。 工作人员足够友好,但是这个地方感觉很过时并运行 - 往下走。 另外,你得付钱的优惠券使用或得到的东西虽然是在岛上; 这让我觉得有点讨厌。 你要很仔细计划你想去做什么所以你不要买太多的非 - 公园关闭之前可以报销的优惠券。 这关门比较早,您需要赶不上渡轮航线。 浮潜是局限于一个很小的区域看起来也不是很好的寄托。 我们做了一个香蕉坐船,而且我们真的很享受。 大约17分钟和来说是值得的。 这里有标牌指向"星级沙子"区域,但是这里的海滩区域到处都是草坪和大海一个肮脏的我们没有看到什么"星级酒店的沙滩" - 所以 - 的最好的。 泳池很糟糕。 大概2尺低水上,到处都是鸟的羽毛,和谁知道是什么。 基于到到网上的评论,这是明显的游泳池是从来没有人在意。 虽然一些很酷的东西给我们。 这个岛还挺多的棕色树蛇清除,所以有建立的人口非常濒临灭绝的koko（滑轨关岛）岛上的鸟,和我们确实看到了一些! 另外,因为你搭乘渡轮去岛上,你可以得到一个非常漂亮的风景和不同的角度可以看到美丽的山景的主要岛屿有着非常棒的关岛到岛的南部。 总之,这个地方很有潜力有很多需要改进的地方。 只是一般。
