I think you can order off the menu too but they have a great breakfast buffet well stocked with fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh juices, omelet bar, etc. The coffee is good and Teresita gave us great service every day.

We were celebrating a special ovation with my wife, where we want to highlight the quality of the food, especially the octopus tacos, and the wonderful attention of the waiter William and the supervisor Leonardo. He recommended some dishes from which we chose the pork...bale. Which was absolutely delicious! We hope to return to the hotel and the restaurant in the near future.More

Many times, we get tired of the same menu at typical resorts. Not at La Cocina! We would visit for breakfast and lunch almost every day, and we loved every experience. The breakfasts had a wide variety of options, and lunch was always a perfect...break in between pool time. While the food is really good, I have to say the staff is even better. One of our favorite staff members was Teresita - we instantly felt like family and she remembered us from previous visits. It is the people who make places really special, and La Cocina is no exception. Add in a fantastic menu and an incredible view, and it is instantly a favorite we are already missing.More

not tasty, shrimps are dry and not tasty at all, octopus even couldn't find it, probably mentioned in many just for price because only pork belly was found on a plate. Guacamole, oh guacamole I tried much better in US than in Mexico. Service is...excellent, no complaints at all. please improve your food, don't be cheapMore

We loved our dining experience at LaCocina and Yairo took great care of us! The salmon with grilled avocado sauce was a delicious appetizer! And the MudSlide cocktail as well as the apple streudel dessert were amazing. There’s a chocolate dome dessert that I can’t...remember the exact name of that was divine.More

Restaurant Cocina was wonderful for breakfast lunch and dinner during our stay. Beautiful views of the ocea every day! Mexican food and modern food were both delicious and fresh. The quesadilla station at breakfast is not to be missed. The best thing is a friendly,...attentive service. William and Yairo and Eduardo in the evening and Teresita at breakfast is always a joy to chat with. Thank you for everything.More
