My husband and I recently spent a week at Soco and absolutely loved it!!! We were looking for a nice, relaxing beach vacation and it was perfect. The hotel and beach were both very clean and well maintained. The view from our balcony was gorgeous...something you would see on a postcard! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Dexter and Michelle were always available to answer questions and make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely visit again!
The food was very good! Loved the fish tacos and the fact that there was always a "catch of the day" to select for dinner. I would suggest changing up the dessert options. I have a wicked sweet tooth, but am lactose intolerant and often times, there was not a dessert option for me. The only other suggestions I would make is that they have bottled water available to guests and that they serve breakfast past 10AM for those of us who like to sleep in.
Definitely visit Oistin's Fish Fry for a delicious meal. My husband and I went around 5:30PM one evening to watch the sunset from the pier and it was beautiful. Then we grabbed dinner at Chillin & Grillin....huge portions and so yummy!
Just a suggestion with regards to travel plans....if you have an early flight home, tell your taxi driver earlier. We scheduled a driver to pick us up at 5AM and he was about 15 minutes late picking us up. There was no hotel staff around that early in the day so I had to call the taxi company to remind them.
