I stayed at Cocotal for 5 days and it was amazing. I stayed in the beachfront casita and was so happy that I did. We opened the windows and the doors every day to get the ocean breeze everyday. The groundsmen are great and very helpful but not overbearing. One of the groundsmen, Sam, took us to the other side... More

Beautiful relaxing stay at this quiet small and friendly rental property. The staff were amazing, clean comfortable accomodation. And Mara, our dog for the week. WONDERFUL. Walking/biking distance into town, restaurants on the beach close by ( Mara will walk you there is she likes you). Fabulous vacation. Great snorkeling near by.

This is a wonderful, low key, place to stay in San Pedro. About 2 miles north of town, it's a pretty easy bike ride to get into town. There's no restaurant, but the honor bar keeps you refreshed, and a quick walk north or south will supply some tasty eats. If you're into cooking (I'm not) there's a full kitchen... More

The grounds were well manicured and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked with new appliances. ( blender, coffee pot toaster and water dispenser. Two air conditioners kept us cool. The pool... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for about a week. The hotel arranged for us to get picked up from the ferry terminal and the driver showed us around and brought us for groceries to stock our cabana. The cabana was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was strong enough to keep us cool on the hottest of days. House... More

Cocotal is the perfect place to stay on Ambergris if you want peace and quiet, and nice amenities without the fuss or extravagance of a large resort. It's cozy and in a great location: far enough from San Pedro that you really feel away from it all, but close enough by water taxi, golf cart or bikes when you want... More

This was our second trip to San Pedro. Last year we stayed on the south end so we thought we would try the north this time. We loved Cocotal. All of the staff was nice and eager to help. It was very quiet. We felt like we were the only ones there. We felt like we had our own little... More

This was by far the best vacation ever. Absolutely every employee was eager to help answer all our questions and happy to recommend where to eat, shop, and sightsee. I have to start with Samuel. He tolerated all my questions from , what's that bird or tree to where can I eat the Royal Rat. He made sure we had... More

Absolutely loved my stay at Cocotal and will visit again. My studio room with kitchen was modern and very clean. The staff are very friendly and got to know me by name during my 5-day stay. I chose to stay here instead of San Pedro because I was looking for something very quiet and uncrowded. Ernesto who runs the office... More

We can't thank thank everyone at Cocotal enough! What a great, relaxing place to stay. Everyone there was accomodating to our every need, it was clean, and comfortable like a home away from home. So quite and peaceful, just the place we needed for a relaxing vacation.
