Reviewed 26 February 2012

The restaurant at Cost de Cocos is open to the public, and we have eaten there twice. We happened to have pizza both times, although there is much more on the menu than pizza, and the food at the other tables looked quite good & the people that I spoke with spoke well of it. The price was very reasonable, and we were told that they will deliver to the local area - but we did not try that.
Initially, I had given this just an average rating - as the pizza was OK (but, not wonderful)......but, I changed it to very good, because - considering that you are in a fishing village 8 miles from the border of Belize - - - and, as we ordered it twice - - - it's was pretty good.
I'd happily eat at Costa de Cocos again, and would not hesitate to order other things on the menu.

I spent a week at Costa de Cocos just before thanksgiving. The accommodations are very clean, quiet and comfortable...also quaint. The fishing was simply put....just great......so much water and so few boats...lots of options in terms of places and species. If you are looking for great value and exceptional service....this is the place.

We stayed at Costa de Cocos in April of 2011 and had a great experience. We were the only divers there along with a group of fishermen. The cabanas were comfortable and clean and the food at the restaurant was great. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Would definitley recommend this as a place to stay.

Room Tip: It's a 5 hour drive from Cancun down to Xcalak but worth it to get away from the crowds and it...

I spent some time here a few years back and loved it. Sometimes I find myself daydreaming about my time; the white sand, chilled vibes, friendly and entertaining staff, lovely warm sea and the unspoilt diving. I hear the fishing is quite good too but would much rather swim around with 2m tarpon in La Poza then try and land a little nipper on a hook!

It is one of few places that I really want to pay a return visit to. I hope the tacos are still as good as they always were!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view - all of them!

I have been going here for years... What a great getaway place. Great food too.. I love going down to Mexico, doing the action tourist thing and finishing my last days here. Great place to relax and recharge. Bring a book, or someone you love, you won’t be disappointed. The diving and fishing is great also. They will take you fishing and cook your catch for you also.

My wife and I hadn't gotten away alone for almost 5 years so we decided to take a late summer break and visit Mexico. I had visited the Yucatan previously and knew the beaches there to be pristine and warm. We did not want another large hotel experience and decided to try a B & B and fishing resort with some reservation on my wife’s part.

The place was stellar. Everything was perfect. The place, the room, the service, the breakfasts, local information and the wonderful people who own and run everything. Dave and Illana are right there with knowledge and ability to guide you in fishing, diving or just eating and relaxing in a hut near the beach with cooling breezes and spectacular views. This is what getting-away-from-it-all looked like a generation ago. The XM radio was the most tech thing to be had. This is a little far to drive from Cancun but it is well worth the effort.

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
