We've stayed at similar smaller boutique hotels in Playa del Carmen and CoCo was a better experience in almost every measure. We considered a lot of hotels including Idle Awhile and CountryCountry. Ultimately the price at Negril OneStop price was probably the deciding factor.
We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms on the second floor and that was an upgrade well worth it. The room was very big, and the amenities were fine for the price. The bed was ok but the pillows were really bad. Overall, though it was great, especially for the price.
The staff were very friendly and outgoing. Perhaps they "did not make the trip" like some of the all inclusives but in general they were very friendly and attentive.
The beach at CoCo is spectacular! The water is clear and warm and there is plenty of shade under their trees. We were "ready" for the vendors and honestly they were rather entertaining versus being a constant bother as some suggest. The trip was "made" by several of them including the fruit lady and the patty man. The fruit lady in particular is an absolute delight and lunch for 2 for $5 from the Patty Man can't be beat.
Negril is meant to be experienced from a small hotel, not a resort. The vast majority of the people on our flight stayed at all inclusives and did not get to experience what we did. It was a great trip and CoCo was a great choice for what we wanted.
