We went to Belize for a friends' wedding and stayed here with another couple. We stayed in the upstairs 2 bedroom in the main house and it was perfect! It was so roomy and had a great layout! It overlooked the pool and had chairs and tables out in the front. My favorite was the back porch. It was screened... More

Cocotal has all that people who want to relax are looking for. Great accomodations, terrific staff and a well maintained property and pool. It's walking distance to several restaurants as well. It's easy to get to San Pedro or ponts north by water ferry or golf cart rental. We just concluded our 4th time at Cocotal with a 2 week... More

We spent four nights at Cocotal and, like the other reviewers, were impressed with accommodations and staff. We had the ground floor suite in the main building which provides a full kitchen, large living/dining area, spacious bedroom and view of the pool area through to the beach. Both the living area and the bedroom have air conditioning. The fact that... More

First, Cocotal arranged our pickup (we stayed days), which included a stop at a local tienda to buy provisions (eggs, beer, bagels, butter, ham, juice, assorted snacks, etc.) as we wanted to make our own breakfast every day (cheaper than eating out, and we got exactly what we wanted) . Our cabana was extremely clean, tastefully decorated and very nicely... More

My husband and I have stayed in various spots in Belize over the years but always on the mainland. This was our first trip to Ambergris Caye. We are always looking for places to stay that are small but have quality amenities, facilities and service. We found that with Cocotal. We stayed for one week in the beachfront cabana. It... More

Only 5 cabanas on the premises with beautifully kept grounds. There are kayaks to take out and a buoy to tie up to about a mile off. Great snorkeling! No restaurant on premises, but an easy walk to several including Akbol for breakfast and White Sands next door. Ernesto, the concierge, was so nice and accommodating. He booked all of... More

As with any big trip, where to stay is a huge first question. After months of research and many reviews read on Trip Advisor, we booked Cocotal and started the countdown. Booking was easy and Ernesto and the management team always replied quickly to any inquiry. I knew I wanted one of the stand alone garden cabanas and they helped... More

We stayed at Cocotal for the first half of our honeymoon, from Jan 10 – 14. My experience with Cocotal started out extremely positive. The manager, Ernesto, promptly answered quite a few emails with various questions and requests (such as having a bottle of champagne waiting in our room upon our arrival). Management even set up a snorkeling trip to... More

We just returned from 6 nights at the Cocotal Resort. I pick our lodgings carefully (based largely on TA reviews) and we weren't disappointed by Cocotal - it was as great as other reviewers have described. The staff is very friendly, and helped us with official stuff (great tour recommendations, making airline reservations) and unofficial stuff too (like giving us... More

This is a lovely place to stay. Right on the beach, very quiet and relaxing, a private dock with hammocks and free kayaks and bikes for guests to use. You can kayak out to the reef and snorkel, which we enjoyed more than our paid tour to the marine reserve. Ernesto and Raul are very friendly and helpful with anything... More
