I went to Coco's while on vacation in Playa last year, and this year when returning with friends the first words said when we arrived at the hotel were--"Let's get lunch at Coco's!" This is a friendly, little family-run restaurant with great food. It is kind of hidden; you have to weave between some abandoned buildings on the beach a few hundred feet to find it, but it is well worth the adventure. Everything we had was delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to make you comfortable. Get out of your resort one day of your stay and find this place. You'll want to go back!

Staying at a nearby hotel, we stopped at Coco's a few times to get a little lunch variety. I concur with some the other fantastic reviews of the food, I would have eaten here much more often if meals weren't included at our hotel. Pizzas were fantastic, as we're the habanero and curry-chipotle sauces. Owners were very friendly, the grounds were very attractive (though small) and the rooms looked very nice. I'd definitely consider staying here, at least a couple nights. The only issue, as one other reviewer noted, is that Coco's sits a few hundred feet off the beach, behind another building that appears to be occupied by some of the locals who sell and rent things on the beach. It's a little awkward walking through there, and you don't have beach chairs when you get to the beach, though I'd bet if you asked Ritchie (rents wave runners on the beac in front of Coco's) he'd find one to rent you. Still, it's a great little spot for at least a few meals if the location doesn't appeal to you to spend the night.

Wow - the pizza here is just amazing, something that is extremely rare in Mexico. Margaritas are potent and delicious. Very friendly service as well.

My boyfriend and I were staying at one of the neighboring resorts and stumbled upon this incredible restaurant. After having some of the best gourmet pizza I've ever tasted (rivaling anything I've ever tried in NYC), we returned for several dinners. The place itself is full of charm with a fabulous staff and prices that can't be beat. A must for anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen!!!

We have been going to Coco's to eat and stay for many many years. Love both Helmut and Sylvia. Helmut is wonderful chef. Never had a bad meal there. One of my favorite dishes is the garlic shrimp and the pizzas are also wonderful. You can't go wrong eating anything here. The margaritas are awesome too!
