“this is the place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Loreto is not the most fascinating town, but if you're going there this is the place to stay. It's friendly, charming, tidy, pretty, and quiet. For $80-90/night you get your own little free-standing apartment (the "cabana") with full kitchen looking out on a pretty little pool area with plants. Headman Stephen couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. You're a five-minute walk from downtown and another five-minute walk to the beachfront. I suppose you might prefer a more authentic Mexican experience, but we didn't. We stayed here, left for three days, and came back, and found ourselves really looking forward to returning. It's that pleasant. Upkeep and cleanliness are faultless. Free library of VHS's (really) to use in the in-room VHS players. Spotty but existent Internet connection. The "heated" pool is heated to above-cold, and it was cool and windy when we were there, so it was tolerable, but a hot tub it is not. Don't panic when you see the location--it's down a dirt alley, but that doesn't mean anything in Mexico. The place is so friendly you'll get to know your fellow guests.

Room Tip: The cabanas circle the pool, so they're all about the same. There are also larger apartments in...

We checked out a few places in Loreto before stopping in here. We were searching for a budget place to save a few peso's on our drive down Baja but this place was just so awesome and the owner Steve was so friendly and welcoming we decided to stay even if it was a little more than we had planned to spend.

We stayed for 2 days in one of the Cabana's and the bed was comfortable, the grounds were well kept and although we did not make it into the pool it was heated and clean! It was pretty windy while we were there or we would have been in the pool for sure! Steve gives you a map of places to go in town that are his favorites and they are spot on great! Just remember the map is not quite to scale ;) They also have hotel like rooms as well, for less money but none were available for our stay.

They do have wi-fi but it does not seem to work well in the rooms as it does outside and as long as the weather is fine that works out great. There is no cable TV but they have a huge selection of movies of all types. The only real complaint we had was there was not a lot of places to put things in the room, such as your suitcases or clothes. My wife did show what she meant to Steve so it got him thinking about future improvements in this area.

All in all a great place to stay, Steve was so helpful and welcoming and was always free to chat about his place, Loreto, Mexico or anything else for that matter. Truly a great person whose pride of ownership not only shows but shines proudly.

Room Tip: There is one king bed and it is in Cabana 3, the one we were in!

We had been traveling in Mexico for 3 weeks and when we landed at Coco Cabanas it was like a breath of fresh air. Steve and his dog Boss where there to greet us and both were extremely accommodating. We choose a room within one of the townhouses. You can rent just a room en suite or for a bit more, also get the upstairs with a living room, kitchen and TV with dvds. We chose just the room and Steve brought down the coffee pot with his fresh ground coffee which was wonderful. The swimming pool was refreshing and relaxing and WARM. It was also quite and a short walk to the beach and downtown. We liked it so much, we even stayed here again on our way back down to Cabo. The beds were very comfortable too.

We arrived in Loreto after driving from San Diego down through Baja over the space of a few days.
It was an enjoyable trip in itself, upon arriving in Loreto we asked a couple of businesses for accommodation , finally deciding on CocoCabanas.It was the right decision.

The owner Steve could not have been friendlier or more helpful, arranging fishing trips, diving advice and our laundry, all at very reasonable prices. The accommodation itself is quite basic but clean, tidy and all you will need. A small furnished kitchenette was A nice surprise also the communal areas were better than would be expected, with two pool areas a jacuzzi and outdoor cooking/BBQ areas, the cabanas are within easy walking distance of the town, about a slow 10 min walk.

Loreto is avery laid back Mexican tourist resort, and it deserves to be busier than when we arrived, it is very friendly and safe, don't be put off by any horror stories you here. BAJA CALIFORNIA IS ONE OF THE SAFEST, FRIENDLIEST PLACES I HAVE BEEN. ( sorry about the capitals I just wanted to be clear)

This is a great place to stay in a very nice part of the world, if you are hesitating, don't, you could do a lot worse.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the malacon have sun for more of the day

Wonderful, quiet, clean with a heated pool and a host that can direct you to a bakery within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay on driving route from Aztec NM to Cabo San Lucas. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: pick the room nearest the pool

We were graciously escorted by phone in the dark to these wonderful cabanas by the owner Steven! Fully equipped with a kitchenette, amazing beds and heated pool! Great value, quiet, safe and highly recommended!!

Steve greeted us and we were able to check in early. Steve provided a great map which helped with exploring the town. The rooms were very clean and functional. Two great pools to chose from. Steve also arranged a local driver to take us to the mission. Unfortunately for us the weather was extremely cold so it really did limit the experience. We had to buy extra clothes at the Sunday market to keep warm. Steve, Josey and Boss treated us well. And one last thing. This is a very,very quiet location.
