The Reef Coco Beach Resort

The Reef CocoBeach

Sat among the mangroves, the Reef Cocobeach Resort is a luxury, beachfront hotel near Playa del Carmen in Mexico. It has an outdoor swimming pool for guests of all ages, which has a smaller section for children. It offers water sports on the beach, including kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling. After a day on the beach, you can recharge with a drink from the bars. You can dine at the buffet restaurant or one of the three ‡ la carte restaurants, which offer Mexican, Italian and Japanese cuisine. The resort has whitewashed walls and a typically Mexican coconut thatched roof, along with coordinating wooden balconies. You'll find a similar theme inside, with brightly coloured furniture and tropical plants scattered around the building. Rooms have patio doors with views of the surrounding area. You can explore the leafy green mangroves surrounding the resort or discover the colourful coral reef in the nearby ocean. You'll be able to swim among fish in the freshwater pools of Cenotes Azul, which is within driving distance. You could take a day trip to the larger resort of Cancun, where you'll find white sandy beaches, shopping malls and archaeological sites containing Mayan ruins.

The Reef Cocobeach Resort is 1.4km from Playa del Carmen. This resort's 5th Avenue is a pedestrianised shopping area and market, which is known for its street food, craft stalls and local souvenirs, such as tequila and Mexican blankets. You can visit Mayan ruins near the resort. Further afield, you'll find the former fishing village of Puerto Morelos, which is 34km north of the hotel. You could swim in one of its underground caves, sip tequila at a bar or haggle at the local art market. The ecological Xel-Ha Park is 50km away, and here you'll find rivers, jungle trails and tropical-plant-filled nurseries.

You can dine indoors or al fresco at the hotel's four restaurants. The buffet offers international cuisine, plus fruit juices, soft drinks and alcohol at various times throughout the day. Between meals, you'll be able to grab a light snack or drink from the bars.

Children can join the kids' club and use the playroom, and there's a gym for adults. When the sun goes down, you can watch the evening entertainment.

On the beach below the hotel, the hotel offers guests free sun loungers and umbrellas.

Great staff and good value for money

We spent a week here and would definitely come back. The outdoor pool area is very nice and well maintained. The rooms are a bit dated but very clean and have most things you need (lots of towels, iron, fridge, TV, safe, nice balcony etc). The staff are super friendly and helpful. The buffet food is average. The Italian, Mexican and Japanese restaurants are much better. The Japanese restaurant was great fun, we booked and had a great night with our own personal chef cooking everything infront of us.. lots of knife skills on show and plenty of fire . We paid extra for the premium package so could use them at no extra cost (the Mexican is included as standard). The snack bar burgers are flame grilled and taste great. I loved the pizzas but my partner didn't. I wasn't going to argue, I am learning slowly . There's a good range of alcoholic drinks but they serve them all in the same relatively small cups when out by the pool. Just order 2 they were absolutely fine with that. 11pm finish in all but one bar a bit disappointing. Overall great value for money we thought.

Best customer service!

I visit Mexico about 2 or 3 times a year because of my father living in Mexico and usually stay at 1 or 2 different resorts during my stay every time. Out of all the resorts I have stayed at, this has by far been the best! Boris and Geraldo and the whole staff made the stay extra special! They always went above and beyond even when they did not have to. They kept our glasses full the whole time and made sure every night was better than the night before. One night Boris made sure we got food at the end of the night when everything was closed and we had some awesome pizza on the street at 5 in the morning even though he had to be back at work by 8am. If you’re coming to Playa, this is the place to go! The food was also super good and the activities and pool were awesome! Highly recommend and will be back!

Best holiday ever! Loved everything, the location was perfect and the resort was lovely. The only down side was the food could of been better. All the reps were amazing and friendly, especially Boris, who was brilliant made the extra effort to make sure we had a great time.
