We enjoyed staying at this small Boutique hotel and I think we were one of the last who stayed before it was closed, I have been told that the Restaurant and bar is open just wondering if the hotel is open or will ever open. If anyone has info please post it

The hotel is open, yes. It's now called Coco Vaa, or something like that. The restaurant is also open, started out calling itself one name and now is something different. D's or something?

Dunno. Online, it says "D's bar". Very confusing.

D's bar. They were even changing the shirts, when we were there.
Nice place.

Have you seen my dinghy?
To avoid confusion and our guests going to the WRONG Dinghy’s we’ve shortened our name to D’s Beach Bar & Grill. Who needs a dock when you’ve got the beach 🏝️

We stayed there when El Z a couple times, have not stayed since becoming Dinghy or now D's. We have however spent time on the beach and had lunch there and I would say the food is better than before, we liked it. Great place on a day with the large covered lunch area and no charge for chairs or umbrellas if eating there.


I prefer the Isle seat

I checked the new hotel Coco Vaa for March/ April 2025 and there was no vacancy. I assumed it was fully booked but maybe it's just not open yet?

The hotel is definitely open, unless it's closed since last December. Perhaps they're not taking reservations that far in advance?

As Ms. Kaye stated, they are open and they are definitely taking reservations for next March and April, as I just checked their website. If you use a 3rd party site like booking.com than you might not have access to availability that far into the future. A link to the website is below.
