We visit Cocos every year on our Mexican vacation. Monday nights is movie night which requires a reservation as it is extremely popular. Due to the number of people they have a very limited menu on Mondays. Our favorite is definitely the jalapeños wrapped in bacon stuffed with cheese. On every other night you can order from the full menu.... More

We spent 2 nights of our honeymoon here and loved it. Staff were lovely and relaxed, beach was breathtaking (pack earplugs if your a light sleeper as the surf is like thunder claps). Food was AMAZING- I can recommend the Thai (I know, Thai food better than I had in Thailand). Pool was great, only a couple of cabanas so... More

My husband & I spent recently stayed at the wonderful Coco Cabanas on the Isla Navidad near Barra de Navidad. Maria and her staff Lilly were extremely accommodating. Even the dog was welcoming coming to our cabana and joining us on a walk on one of the most beautiful beaches on the Costa Alegre. Coco Cabanas is an eco hotel... More

On the website they say that this is not a place to go if you are looking for luxury. Thats true, because this is not a 5 star resort when you talk about the rooms. The cabins are like Gilligans Island revisited, and are really cool. No A/C and no fridge, but you have one of the best locations in... More

I'm surprised how few reviews there are about this place; seems it's a real hit with countless Canadians / Americans who travel there every year. My wife and I drove right down the Costa Alegre looking for a decent place to stay and this was the best one we saw. Pros: - very nice, modern and Mexican-style cabins. They're two... More

My wife and I shared our birthday together at CocoCabanas, we are familiar with playa de cocos as we live in Manzanillo. My wife had been there before with friends for a party years before and knew the owners. We arrived a little late but had no problem getting a drink and room key within minutes of arrival, the cabana... More

I would highly recommend CocoCabanas! The huts are comfortable, and Jeff and Maria make you feel like family. It is only about 25 minutes from the airport but might as well be a million miles away because the stress just melts away as soon as you arrive. The main palapa is a fun place to gather, meet other guests, and... More

We stayed down the beach from CocoCabanas on our honeymoon but dined at the restaurant twice during our week long stay. Our first night we got in late and they not only stayed open to accommodate us but the food was top notch. It was exactly what I'd been craving for my first meal in Mexico. I had the fajitas...
