“Cocotal Inn was GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I have to say that Ernesto and everyone else at Cocotal were the greatest! Always there to help with anything we needed. We took several excursions during our week there and they set down with us and made all the arrangements for us. Making sure we had the best service and finding the best times to get the most for our money. We stayed in the Casita and were right on the beach! It was beautiful! Ocean right in front and pool just out the back door. Nice and quiet not you commercial type of resort. Very relaxing and just what we were looking for. The only way to really enjoy the Island life as far as I'm concerned. If you wanted to do anything you only have to catch the water taxi at the end of the pier or take a nice walk down the beach. Several great restaurants & bars close by. The only problem we had was the time went by to fast. I have attach a picture I took from the front porch of the sunrise on one morning.

If you want a spa, restaurant, dance floor with a dj, loud music and a hotel-like atmosphere, DO NOT stay at Cocotal. If you are looking for an authentic island experience, replete with a cool beach vibe, fresh water pool, well-eqipped casitas and the best "camp dog" ever--stay at Cocotal! It is within walking distance to Capricorn and Ak'Bol and you can go directly next door to White Sands for tours and scuba. The staff is second to none and will get to know you by name. If you are REALLY nice and lucky, maybe Raul will give you his recipe for a really mean rum punch! Stay here for the most wonderful Belize vacation you could ever hope for.

Room Tip: There is no "bad room" or "good room" at Cocotal. Every room is great! We love...

Stayed here for 10 days for our honeymoon, stayed in number 1 cabanna, closes to the beach.

Stunning location and very peaceful at the same time, its 2.5miles into San Pedro town which takes 10 minutes by bike (complimentary from cocotal)

There are a few good restaurants either side of Cocotal Capricorn being one of those. This is where Cocotal is different from other places, it has amenities roundabout it.

The room was beautiful and comfy with fans and air con unit to keep us cool. It had everything needed to prepare a quick and easy meal.

The staff are so helpful, Ernesto, Analita and Raul, and especially Cory who helped us book our trip here!

Cocotal have complimentary kayaks also, which we took advantage off an kayaked out to the reef to snorkel.

The place also has a swimming pool with lilos and a small jacuzzi!

This is honestly like a small paradise and its so private, nobody bothers you.

The weather in June was mostly really hot, few rain showers here an there.

Best price in San Pedro and best quality from what we saw.

Pics to follow.

We stayed in the casita which is a very finely appointed, idyllic room by the sea. We loved sitting out on the dock enjoying the quiet area. The staff and service was excellant and it was great being able to take a free bike down the beach to do yoga at Ak'Bal. We also took advantage of the free kayaks and paddled out to the reef to snorkel. It was great being able to leisurely paddle out and have a quiet area to snorkel. There are certainly not as many restraurants in this area as downtown San Pedro, but we really enjoyed the morning burrito/tomale cart and we prepared some of our meals in the casita. I felt Cocotal was great value in a very beautiful vacation. Extremely clean and well maintained property. I definitely hope to return!

We loved Cocotal Inn & Cabanas.

In fact, we found all of the north island community providing more than what was needed in a vacation destination. We stayed in the garden cabana, which was perfect for our ‘honeymoon’ getaway. The facilities provided all that was needed after a full day—air-conditioned rooms, barbeque, host-bar, fresh water pool, and waterfront access to water taxi’s with a short ride to San Pedro town. Though the Cabana’s were fully equipped with a kitchens, there was no need to cook--we completely indulged in the amazing fine cuisine offered at local dining establishments. We took full advantage of the perks that Cocotal had to offer--free-use kayaks, bikes, hammocks under the palapa, and easy access, to rent a golf cart for a jaunt around the island. In the mornings, we enjoyed coffee on the waterfront while watching sealife and dolphins. All so perfect for a restful, relaxing and fun-filled vacation. The hospitality was incredible! Ernesto and Adelita were great in handling the logistics while Raoul and Calven made the stay much more comfortable and inviting. Raoul even provided some great recommendations for dining establishments around the island. We spent one fabulous day fishing with our fishing guide, Jose Perez, and had such a great time, we went for a second day--We were not disappointed. There isn’t much to say about what we least liked about our stay. Some least liked the rain, but we found it refreshing and as warm as a hot shower in Canada’s -20 winters ☺. Overall, Cocotal Inn & Cabanas is a fine facility that has exceeded our expectations and We do not hesitate to recommend it as a place to visit.

After reading all the amazing reviews we decided this was the place for us to stay at in Belize. And it exceeded our expectations.

The resort is wonderfully maintained - we stayed in the casita and loved the interior and easy access to the pool and ocean (although nothing is far from anything in the resort). The small kitchen allowed us to cook a few meals and the air conditioning was needed for the really warm days. The pool was consistently maintained and was a great place to sit and enjoy the yummy rum punch.

We used the bikes and kayaks regularly and loved being able to easily get to the reef from the dock. The staff were helpful when needed and otherwise it felt like we had the resort to ourselves in a private paradise.

We've always said we'd never go to the same place twice but we will be back in a heartbeat and will never do an all-inclusive again.

We spent 14 nights in a very comfortable cabana. The only thing we lacked was a second chair to sit and read in; which they immediately provided us. The kitchen allowed us to cook all our meals and we enjoyed having access to the gas BBQ. We took advantage of the free kayaks and bikes nearly daily. We enjoyed being away from the noise and crowd of the city, but with easy access via bikes. We will be back.
