What a wonderful little spot surrounded by huge all inclusives. Much more our style. The little cabanas are perfect with thatched roofs and so many beautifully designed detais like fountains, gardens and hammocks. We had a nice dinner and highly recommend the shrimp with onions,red bell peppers and a rosemary chili sauce. The wood fired pizza was wonderful too! The... More

We found this place to be very enjoyable. A great place to relax and unwind. The food was excellent, and the staff took good care of you. The location near the beach is nice, and we away from the barrage of leaches. You have to go to town if you need attacked by salesmen. We found everything we needed here... More

We stayed here over Christmas of 2013. It was nice, very nice owners. The wifi isn't very good, neither is the TV in the rooms. It loses signal all the time, but you're in Mexico; you shouldn't be sitting around on the internet or watching TV. The food was great, the owners show a lot of hospitality. Don't drink the... More

The beach was a slight walk, but what a beautiful stretch of beach!!!! Thanks for a great stay, can't wait to return! What... More

One way I judge is on the return visit. Coco's rocks. Helmut and Sylvia are incredible, and they go out of their way to make sure everything you need is provided. The cabanas are very comfortable, clean and the food is amazing. Sit back relax and be pampered.

Truly a hidden gem! A little hard to find but worth finding a cab driver who knows how to get there. We stayed here just a few nights between mega resorts and it was just what we wanted. Relaxing... True Mexican charm and hospitality. Sylvia, Helmet, Omar and Maria were all so friendly and helpful and the food was amazing!!!... More
