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

My husband and I stayed at Cocotal Inn for 7 nights around the New Year's holiday. Our cabana was comfortable, roomy, spotlessly clean, very well appointed, and beautifully designed. I absolutely love the tropical hard wood ceiling and hand made furniture. Even though our cabana was not waterfront, it didn't matter. We simply walked a few dozen yards and there... More

My husband and I stayed 7 nights at the beachfront casita. It has everything we needed. We fished, kayaked, snorkeled everyday. We booked our 3 fishing trips and a snorkeling trip all thru the manager. Beware that the pick up might not be on time, one of our fishing guides was 1.5hr late, our snorkeling guide was 1hr late. The... More

After months of research, we decided to spend our week at Cocotal Inn & Cabanas. BEST decision ever. Ernesto was absolutely wonderful; he arranged to have our golf cart there for the week (best investment EVER) and scheduled our shore excursions (which picked us up at the end of our dock). Mara is the best watch dog, she greeted us... More

Yeah, this place was so beautiful that I thought I had died and gone to heaven. So serene and clean and peaceful. What can I say. I stayed at one of the little cabanas and it was heavenly. They have these cabanas that are little houses. Well made with cedar rafter ceilings and updated plumbing, kitchen appliances. Nice comfy, clean... More

The pictures do not do this place justice-it is a great spot. I didn't want to leave. The cabanas are spacious and have AC as well as wifi and drinking water. Everything is very clean. There is a pool and a pier for swimming or jumping on a boat for a nice dinner, tour or water activities. Bikes and kayaks... More

This is our 3rd year returning. We have stayed in the beachfront casita (love the covered patio overlooking the water) The cabanas also beautiful and the upstairs main house. They really make all the casita/cabanas lovely with incredibly great design. The staff are so helpful and friendly. They all seem to enjoy their jobs. Same staff on all return trips... More

The cabins are spacious, clean and have full kitchens...I was impressed by the construction of the ceiling which gave the place a special feeling.. The inn arranged for free transfer to and from the boat taxi terminal. There are plenty of good restaurants a short walk along the beach ( don't go to the capricorn restaurant which is north of...
