“Fantastic Stay at Coco Beach Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Coco Beach Resort is amazing! The grounds are lovely and the rooms are very pretty and well appointed. The staff is so friendly and really goes the extra mile. Special shout outs to Amy, Deon, Larry, Ivan, and Zoby for making our stay great!
The resort is a short water taxi ride from San Pedro. Snorkeling right off the beach at the resort is not great, so you will likely need to do tours or rent a boat to get the full experience. They do a nice job getting the seagrass removed so the beach is clean and beautiful.
Cocoblanco, the new restaurant, is very good but pricey. We had many meals in San Pedro that were as good or better for much less. Definitely eat there once, but venture out because San Pedro has so many other good options. The resort is lacking a lunch spot and does not offer breakfast, but you can go to the neighboring hotel.
Overall, great experience and we will definitely return!

This was our seond time to stay at Coco Beach Resort in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. We loved it just as much this time as we did 2 years ago! Fun pool, nice staff, clean facilities and rooms and a great location. It is a quiet place...our boys ages 13 and 11 were lucky enough to have another family from CA show up with their boys the same age. They had a great time together. There are restaurants on site and within walking distance or you can take a golf cart or the water taxi to town for dining. We opted for a week long golf cart rental and stocked our own fridge. This was part of our "experience" on the Island. The back road is MORE than bumpy and not for everyone. The water taxi is faster but doesn't allow for you to be flexible with your time in and out of town. You must go on their schedule. Our family provided some goods to one of the local schools, Holy Cross Anglican School. This school is located at the North side of the bridge. They have a wish list on their website. We spoke with Lydia (volunteer coordinator) and had a tour of the school while on the Island. You can rent bikes from the hotel and golf carts if desired. We also rented snorkel equipment for a day and snorkeled at the reef just in front of the hotel. You use the free kayak's to get to the snorkel area. We took two boat tours with Capt. Steve Rubio on the boat No Rush. He and his crew do a great job. We booked this on our own, not through the hotel.
We really liked meeting the front desk staff of Coco Beach as well...Tula, Zoby and Moncho were especially helpful. Larry the Pool Guy will keep you in smiles and towels and keeps a very clean pool, too. Lotion and his wait staff did a nice job with the food orders while Armando, Amir and Dane kept the Pina Colada's flowing. You should also try the Monkey Banana drink with or without rum.
The wind can pick up a bit so I suggest you have a sweater, shawl, long sleeves and/or pants for some evenings. We did need bug spray one night but that was it.
If you want quiet, relaxed and beautiful take a look at Coco Beach Resort!

Room Tip: Because we were with our boys we opted for a room closer to and overlooking the back pool. This woul...

Highly recommend CoCo Beach! The moment we got to the resort we were treated like we were the only ones staying there. By the end of our stay we knew most of the staffs names and they knew ours. The views were amazing!!! The rooms were comfortable and luxurious! The pools were fantastic and perfect for relaxing! The food was very fresh and delicious! Cocoblanco (restaurant at the resort) was one of our favorite places to eat! We traveled there for our honeymoon and then stayed for my sisters wedding!
We will definitely go back!

I visited Coco Beach Resort with my boyfriend. We had a really nice time and it really is beautiful. We were a little surprised at how things "died down" at night. The pools at Coco beach are beautiful and fun - they include a swim-up bar, hot tub, water slide (in the "kids" pool) but oddly enough the place became like a ghost town after dark (around 7:30). I think that use of the pools after dark was discouraged by the lack of lighting, which is weird, because the swim-up bar stayed open until midnight, I think.

Regardless, this place was lovely. They have their own dock where you can catch a boat to San Pedro (about a 15 minute ride). The views are beautiful, the rooms are very nice and clean.

This is a beautiful property. We stayed in one of the condos right on the beach. It is pricey but lovely. Larry the pool guy was the most gracious and helpful of all the staff. I was surprised at the number of mosquitoes in the dry season. Take bug spray and wear it liberally. The roads are just horrendous on this island especially if there is any rain. Stick to the water taxis. Although we did enjoy a golf cart ride north to Mcafees house and the house where the victim was murdered.

We just came back from Coco Beach Resort and I must say that after reading all of the reviews, I was somewhat disappointed with our stay. Like others who have reviewed this property, we have also traveled from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean... First and foremost, It's a nice property. If you are looking for a Caribbean beach/sea, this does not compare. Beach is nice but people from the island call is Sandy Point for a reason. Lots of sand blowing ... The water at the beach is shallow and with sea weed - your feet sink in to the sand as you walk in.

Pool area was very nice and the kids loved swimming and jumping from the big rock from 7am to 7pm.

The hotel is pricey and its not fair to complain about it after the fact as I knew what we were paying before we left. But the value you get for the price doesnt compare to luxury all inclusive resorts that you might find in Cancun with similar beaches.

If you still do get here, here are some things to know:
1) Behind the hotel (on the other side of the dirt road), there are two shacks serving tamales ($3BZ) and breakfast burritos ($2BZ) - this is where the staff eats - so get your breakfast and lunch here

2) Water taxi of $10 US round trip/person can get to be pricey - you can rent a golf cart for 2 hours for about $25US. You should definitely experience both - golf cart may be the less expensive option if you want to head to San Pedro more than once.

3) In San Pedro, check out Pupuseria across from Waraguma is a great local place - burritos and pupusas are the specialty. Nick, the Operations manager recommended El Fogon also but we didnt make it.

4) Hol Chan Marine reserve is great snorkeling for families - our 11 year old thought it was the "coolest thing ever" - Check out http://grumpyandhappy.com/ for a private tour - reasonable price and they take care of you and the marine reserve. Jolene and Lorne were really nice and capable.

5) Look for Larry the Pool Guy - he will also take care of you!!!

Room Tip: stay in the back of the hotel in pool view villas.. the hotel rooms may hear lots of noise with kids...

It is absolutely a dream property! Post card background that doesn't dissapoint, The only disappointment was the restaurant, quality of the food didn't match the price. They also didn't serve breakfast, which forced us to find other arrangements. This being said the room was fantastic, the grounds where beautiful and the beach well kept up.
