The rooms here are so great, and the public space is also top class. You'll love your cabana style accommodation, complete with hammock for sleep if your brave enough (there's a normal bed too). If you want hot water, they can turn it on for you. The staff do a great job of serving you in the beautifully situated on-site...

If you are looking for a great place off the grid, this is it. No cell, no tv, no noise! We went for a 7 day fishing trip and fell in love with the staff and laid back atmosphere. But be warned, this is not the Ritz and you are away from city life. Wind and solar power, showers are...

We didn't stay here, only stopped for lunch since we were visiting Xcalak. Drove down for the day to escape the cruise ship crowds. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to have a look around. We both ordered the fish and chips. Hot, fresh and deep fried! The waiter said it was red snapper, and came as large...

My daughter and I stayed here in Feb17. We have stayed in Cancun resorts, this is not that. This is just all the good and fun parts of the resorts, leaving out all the people and not fun parts.

The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were nice, clean, great food in the restaurant and a very relaxing lodge. Fishing was tough due to the winds but still an outstanding vacation.

6 of us reserved 3 rooms at Costa de Coco. It was going to be a relaxing time in remote Xcalak in southern Quintana Roo, Mexico. Shortly after we arrived we were informed that they had some bad news for us. Some guests had decided to extend their stay and there were no rooms for us. Ilana, owner and manager,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Costa de Cocos is about immersing yourself in nature, while relaxing in a hammock suspended under palm trees, enjoying an ice cold beverage on our patio, fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, traveling along the coast in a kayak, or touring the surrounding landscape on foot, observing our local flora and fauna. From our shore you will observe numerous juvenile fish in the shallows, while multiple species of shorebirds feed along the coast. All you hear is the gentle roar of waves breaking on the nearby reef, all you feel is the warm sun and a gentle breeze blowing across your skin. You are surrounded by turquoise waters and dense jungle and mangroves. No skyscrapers, crowds, or cell phones.Costa de Cocos offers a truly unique experience on the frontier of Mexico. Our environmentally friendly resort has much to offer those who seek to experience life off the beaten path. We are located within the Xcalak Reef National Marine Park (Parque Nacional Arrecifes de Xcalak). The closest gas station and ATM are 30 miles (50 km) away, and the closest sizable town, Chetumal, is a distant 130 miles (200 km). Power is provided by the sun, with a generator backup.No square concrete rooms here, you will stay in a private Mayan-style beach bungalow with attached bathroom and shower. You will dine in our shore-front restaurant and bar, with wood decor and thatched roof.During your stay you can go fishing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, experience guided bird tours, kayak along the coast, visit Mayan ruins, travel to nearby towns and museums, and visit Belize. We are located five hours south of Cancun and three hours north of Chetumal. Belize and Ambergris Caye are located only a few short miles to the south.We have a wireless Internet connection, but no cell or land-line phone service. The nearby village of Xcalak offers very little in the way of shopping and nightlife. If you are looking for sandy beaches, shopping, and an active night life, it it best not to choose us. ... more   less
