Travelers' Choice
From the moment you arrive at The Reef Coco Beach, you’ll feel the essence of a genuinely Mexican beachfront town. This intimate, relaxed, and locally- owned property has an easygoing vibe, but with all of the amenities of a top hotel resort on the Riviera Maya. Enjoy the friendly service, lavish buffets, expansive pool, and activities for both kids and adults. Wander off property to nearby 5th Avenue to take in the bustling sites, restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping of the world-famous strip. How Do You Prefer to Playa? Our all-inclusive packages are designed for the guest who enjoy knowing that all meals and major amenities are taken care off as soon as they book. But, unlike other Playa del Carmen resorts, The Reef Coco Beach also offers a bed + breakfast option, where guests enjoy the flexibility of paying as they go - with the exception of our premium continental breakfast, which is included.

Absolute 0 stars! Our stay was horrible! Worst Customer Service over all and our room was full of mold! We informed the front desk, housekeeping, asked to speak to a manager and to no avail. Our concerns went unanswered and unattended

Hotel's Favorite
We are currently staying at this hotel and I feel I have to write a review! We have a 7 & 5 year old and have been blown away by how good this place is. We are staying one week all inclusive. As a small resort, and knowing resorts in Mexico can be ‘hit or Miss’ , we were nervous about our stay. However, every single member of staff has been wonderful and they can’t do enough for you. The kids club activities are so fun - the kids made chefs hats and cookies one day and the next made craft piñatas before having a piñata party after. They seek out families to make sure all children are invited to attend these fun activities and the staff are so happy and energetic. Adrianna and Maria have been AMAZING with our kids - the kids don’t want to leave! Honestly, they are very special people. Poolside, there are plenty of beds available and the place is so clean. They have mini golf, table tennis, pool and other activities for you to enjoy and throughout the day there is a lot to get involved in - again, the staff make a huge effort here. There was even a singer and saxophone player poolside to entertain people! The food is great - big selection (and a kids area with the standard chips, plain pasta, fish fingers, pizza and veggies etc). The drinks also are great. There is a poolside snack bar which is such a bonus if you don’t fancy the buffet or restaurants. There is a kids pool, jacuzzi and big main pool with easy steps access and steps on the side and places for loungers in the pool. Covid measures are great. Everyone wears a mask, they take your temperature on entry and spray the rooms and public areas daily. The buffet is served to you by chefs and everyone is very respectful. The buffet overlooks the sea and is gorgeous. The hotel is a 1 minute walk from a pharmacy and 7-11 convenience store. 5/10 minutes away there are lots of restaurants and stores / markets which are lovely to explore. The hotel arranged a hire car for us (MUCH cheaper than the airport - I think we pay $65 a day ALL IN) and it’s a lovely car. We have traveled to local cenotes and lagoons for snorkelling which is well worth doing. There are no hard sells at this hotel like others we have been too.. they are all genuinely really friendly people. They also all speak amazing English! Nobody expects a tip (although they work so hard, they deserve it!). Ive also booked an 80 minute spa treatment on Sunday (massage, facial and scrub) for only $95 - this is great value. Beds are comfy, showers hot and a mini fridge is stocked with lots of drinks. TV shows Spanish and English channels (probably more but we’ve stuck to cartoons!) WiFi is great. We were expecting a standard hotel that we could crash in as we explored playa del Carmen and tulum but this place has been such a find, we haven’t wanted to leave much!! The ONLY downside is the beach and sea is full of seaweed (not the hotels fault, they have workers out at 6am clearing it), so it can be a little smelly when the wind and sun are strong.. I mean that’s all I can think of of any sort of negative. The sea is strong and it’s not really swimable at the moment- however it’s next to a public beach and it makes for a really nice walk. Finally, I highly recommend you book this place. You won’t be disappointed!

I am currently at this hotel as we took my mom to celebrate her 65th birthday. I would NEVER come again! Here are my thoughts: 1. Hotel property is very small. NOT like the photos. 2. Food is horrible. Husband got sick twice from the buffet. I got sick one night. Spent 2 days in our room with food poisoning. 3. The staff do not understand English at all!! Very hard to communicate with them which is very frustrating when trying to order food or drinks. Only have 3 types of beers 4. Beds are rock hard. Back pain all night 5. Rooms smell like mold!! 6. Bathroom has mold in it 7. Extremely hard to make reservations for the dinner places at night. Ended up walking to one of them when they opened. 8. Only one TV station has English 9. You have to pay for Covid test which is not what the advertised on Funjet. 10. Locals are every where. Do not feel safe walking around when they have access to our beaches 11. Activities do not allow for Covid protocols. You can’t stay 6 feet away. 12. Beach has a ton of seaweed so you can’t enjoy the beach at all. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE AT ALL!! I will be reporting it to Funjet. Seriously spend a little more for better quality. It will be worth it!! Horrible experience. I wish I could leave here and go to Occidental Xcaret as I loved that place!! Do Not Come Here!!
