First the good- The location is the best. Close to everything. The staff were all very nice. The pool area was nice and cozy. The food at the restaurant at night was really really good. Also be sure to check out the steak place near the second set of rooms, so good! The not so good- We booked four rooms here. When we checked in, half our group got rooms in the main building and half our group was down the street. The rooms around the corner, are really rough and old. Our rooms never got cleaned in the several days we were there, even though we hung the sign. Since there are no phones, we walked back to the front to ask why our rooms didn't get cleaned since we had piled our towels and now they were all wet. They had no reason, just told me to take some pool towels. Our shower didn't really drain and the sprayer just went all over the place and flooded the bathroom every time we showered. It just felt like we didn't even belong to the same hotel, like we were kinda forgotten over there. Those rooms are also next to a residential apartment building. Someone there locked a dog on the porch and it barked nonstop from about midnight till 3 am. Good times.... One day we returned from the beach ready to hit the pool, to find it full of kids. They had rented (?) out the pool area for a dance group. There were no available seats and there were over a dozen children running around. Not exactly enjoyable for the paying customers.

This is actually 2 completely different hotels under one name. They aren't even on the same property. Its like the big house plus the servants quarters. And the price differential reflects that. The main hotel is $175+ per night and the secondary hotel $80 or less per night. Both are overpriced for what they offer in my opinion. You can find better in both price categories, especially on airbnb but other hotels as well. The secondary hotel is an ant infested dump with sparse furnishings. The main hotel is nice which is why most of the TA reviews are good. Read the reviews on booking.com which specify room type and also Expedia. I was initially booked for a standard room through a travel agency, but paid to upgrade when I saw it. I would have gone elsewhere but my booking was non-refundable. That's money I would have preferred to spend elsewhere, so pretty po'ed. The breakfast would have been fine except for the swarms of flies that attempt to share it with you. Although my stay in the main hotel was fine, I am giving this place a low rating because it should be a crime to market these under the same umbrella. The secondary hotel is a one star or less and the main hotel is a solid 3 star, but the entire place is ranked 3 stars. That is deceptive and unfair.

We stayed in room E, which is a very large upstairs loft with a vaulted ceiling. It felt a little dated, but it was a nice enough place to crash for the night in Coco. Probably a 10 minute walk to the strip in Coco. The bar comfortable, and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was average, check in and out was easy. Recommended for a short stay. Couldn't imagine a week there.

Another very accurate trip advisor recommendation! Lives up to its reviews, this charming retro place is well kept, large rooms, lovely chill pool and well tended garden/grounds. The big tree near the pool had parrots, iguanas and many other birds visiting, amazing! Great location and off the main strip but very close to the beach. The people working there are all super friendly and nice. Loved our stay there at the end of our trip before heading back home. Conveniently close to the airport!

We picked this hotel based on the proximity to the beach and the airport. Location was excellent, hotel was clean and tidy. Basic hotel but all we needed for the night. The bar was packed when we returned from dinner, full of welcoming expats willing to answer all of our questions about the area. Perfect spot if you are going down the coast and need a rest from your travels on arrival.

Our stay was for two nights in mid-November, just as the tourist season is starting to heat up. The hotel is a short walk to the lively main street but far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet. Our room was just off the pool and had a (very firm) king-sized bed, plus extra seating areas inside and out, a microwave, handy mini-fridge, and large TV we did not use. The on-site Garden Bar is fantastic, with ice-cold drinks, tasty food, and very friendly staff. They had live music on Saturday night, which could be heard throughout the property but ended before 10 pm, and a lively market midday on Sunday. The pool was lovely and unlike a previous reviewer, we did not find the music from the restaurant to be overwhelming or intrusive while we relaxed in the loungers during the day. The beach is a quick walk away and popular with local families. We spent our beach time on the quieter north end, then walked back on the busy main drag, where there were countless food and drink options as well as grocery, ATMs, etc. After spending some time on the main street, we were happy to have this quiet oasis to come back to. We will definitely stay here again if we return to the area!

I love so much about this hotel: the location, the room comfort, the grounds. This was a return stay for me, because I'd had such a great experience previously. And I can truthfully say that this visit might have been perfect but for one stunning exception: the new (since my last stay) bar/restaurant played music constantly, and there was no way to escape it without hiding in my room. Each room has a pleasant front porch with seating, but the only time I could enjoy mine was in the early morning hours. Every afternoon and evening, save for Sunday, the bar music invaded my senses without letup. I like music -- I listen to music -- but I don't want to be bombarded by it every moment of the day. At times, the "music" choices included graphic rap lyrics which offended even me. And the proximity of the bar to every room at the hotel, and to the pool, means that no room location will spare guests from the noise. The room was quite comfortable. The a/c works well, and the hot water is plentiful with good water pressure. The large shower is wonderful. I like having a mini frig, a microwave, and coffee pot, and the large windows provide for plenty of natural light and a view of the tropical landscaping outdoors. There are plentiful outlets for charging devices, and the wifi was excellent. The bed was a little firm but fine. The daily breakfast was served with friendly efficiency and the food was good. The hotel is perfectly located for divers, as it's a short walk to the beach and the usual rendezvous point for the local dive shops. There is on-site parking. Yes, there is road construction going on right now, but that is not the fault of the hotel, and it did not prevent me from coming and going. The Garden Bar could be a nice place to have cocktail or a meal. I enjoyed fish tacos there on my first night and they were delicious, although the music made it difficult to have a conversation with my companion. Since the bar is smack in the middle of the hotel grounds, guests have no way to avoid the noise without being closed in a room. Thankfully, the bar shut down by ten each night. The property has much going for it, but if you like peace and quiet, and the sound of the tropical birds, this might not be your best bet. Absent the noise issue, I'd have given this hotel a top rating. On my next visit, I'll be looking for a different place to stay.

I love this place!!! The staff are all so kind and friendly, especially the ladies who cooked our breakfast and the man working the check in office! The check in process was easy and quick and our room was extremely clean and neat. This hotel is absolutely perfect walking distance from the beach and many wonderful restaurants. The included breakfast here is very delicious too, thanks to the lovely breakfast chefs. Our room included a microwave, a much needed air conditioning unit, a large flatscreen TV, and best of all, a small balcony. The pool is located in the center of the complex and is stunning! We had a wonderful time at this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. We will absolutely be coming back.

The Garden Bar with its beautiful garden surrounding it is a great place to relax and enjoy the delicious food. One of the best in Coco! The staff are friendly and always smiling, even under their masks you know they are always happy to see you!
