“Best kitchen in the area. Wonderfull Owners.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stayed at the Coco´s Cabanas for about three weeks with our 6 and 7 year old kids. Our Family loved it. If you are looking for an all inklusiv resort with cocktails on the pool the whole day, situated close to the party zone you are definetly wrong. But if you are looking for a calm, small place owned by a nice family and one of the best cooks in the region, giving you the feeling of being a part of this family, you are exactly right.
It´s small,nice & rooms and pool are always cool.

Located North of the bustling hub of Playa del Carmen, about a $20 cab ride away from noisy 5th Ave, this area reminds me of what Playa del Carmen was like 25 years ago. So needless to say, this is not for those people looking for a place to party. However, Cocos Cabanas is a small, friendly, well run set of 8 Cabanas set around a small pool and lovely Palapa resaurant, a few steps away from a fantastic beach. It is run by a couple who work very hard to provide excellent friendly service. The food and selection ot the Palapa Restaurant, and their wood Pizza Oven is a huge hit in the area. The Cabanas are basic but clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this for those looking to stay away from the noise of an all inclusive resort in a place that is still slightly off the beaten path.

After our vacation in PDC, I had to leave a review because Coco's made our experience so memorable. The previous reviews about Helmut & Sylvia are very accurate. They were so sweet, helpful, & accommodating. Our room was gorgeous. It was like a magical private villa with beautiful decor, new electronics, a warm shower, comfortable bed, plenty of space - everything we needed & more. The landscaping is very pretty. The beach is a 1 minute walk away. The restaurant was AMAZING. The bar & food was very affordable. Helmut & Sylvia make you feel like you're staying with a family member at their beautiful villa. We were there for a wedding at the next-door resort and Sylvia even generously drove us there when we needed a ride! During our amazing trip, I proposed to my girlfriend & she said yes :). Thank you to Helmut & Sylvia for making my proposal so perfect!

Coco's is a little gem just steps off the beach. Unique little cabanas and first class hospitality. Helmut and Sylvia make you feel as you have been comming there forever. Finding this little gem made our trip. Not only do you get authentic mexican cuisine but they have the best stone fired pizza going. The beach has miles of white sand and the water is warm and clean to swim in. (Oh yeah - don't forget Sylvia's margaritas) Can't wait to go back. Brandy Mc

Room Tip: The newer Cabanas are a little bigger than the original ones and are equipped with fridges. We stay...

We had the best experience on dinning in our stay at Cocos. Helmut is the chef-owner and he can prepare delicious dishes as well as oven cooked pizzas. The place is also super neat and cozy. Great service as well. We are going back for sure.

I found the hidden gem in Playa Del Carmen!! This small in size, but large in character and hospitality is a wonderful place to stay for the value. The owners Helmut & Silvia are not only accomodating but a blast to hang out and enjoy wonderful food and drinks at thier hotel. From Pizza, Pasta to the Best Fried Fish fresh from the days catch you will be amazed at the flavor and service you get. When I left the Cabanas were being renovated and one of the second story units was finished and WOW is all I can say, new more spacious rooms, new Flat Screen TV's, futon couch, AC the works all new and amazing. If you want a great get away but close to town and just feet from the beach this is the place to book.....

We were met by such a welcoming couple Helmut & Silva. They showed us to our fabulous boutique room that was so cozy and set the mood for our week in Paradise. All of our needs were met...everything to make you feel right at home. The food was absolutely amazing and cooked fresh to order (and lets not forget the margaritas made from scratch - delish). The location was perfect...just a short walk to gorgeous beach. They both were so wonderful with excellent advice on where to eat and what things to do. We enjoyed a memorable stay and wish we could have stayed longer.
