Great for the money!

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Location: The hotel is about 1/2 mile from the main 5th street which is a great place to go out. Taxi's can take you there for about $5.
We were there for a wedding that was at The Royal (a really expensive all-inclusive) and we decided to stay here because it was about $1,000 cheaper. We didn't spend a lot of time at our hotel but we did experience a couple of things. First, the pool is very nice and the hotel has its own private beach area though it is not large. We only ate at the buffet and the snack bar, both were nothing fancy but the food tasted good. I think the night restaurants are probably better. The rooms were clean and comfortable and for the most part the hotel staff is very friendly. They do try to get you to do a 90 minute tour to buy a vacation plan, which we got out of but one of the lady managers was really rude about it and telling us that we had time (did not appreciate that). I think the hotel is a reasonable price and you get what you pay for.

I will go back!!

Posted Nov 11, 2014
The hotel staff was greag, the food was good. The hotel was very clean and there was usually some fun activities out by the pool! The hotel is located at a poit with a reef just beyond, several fishing and dive boats anchored out past the beach add to the charm. Lots of things to do, great dive shop on premises and lots of dive opportunities as the dive boats leave from the dock. If you wants some fun outside the resort there is a great little beach bar located next door that had a fun crowd (if you're not paying attention you'll miss it) and 5th avenue is just a short walk. I would definitely recommend it to friends!

Nice hotel close to downtown

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Location, and entertainment
Cons: Food could be better. You just didn't crave to overindulge. Food labelling was lacking, didn't always know what was in the dish.
Location: On the beach, restaurants, bars, shopping.
Our week stay at this hotel was good. Our main goal for this holiday was to go exploring, see the ruins go to Cozumel, shopping etc. If your main goal is to sit by a pool and be waited on this May not be the place for you. Although the staff were nice and wanting to please, some of the service staff their English was very limiting so ordering drinks or ordering food made it difficult in some cases. Their is no drink service by the pool so you have to go to the swim up bar to order drinks, it would be nice to just sit by the pool read a book and get waited on even if it was one person who did the rounds once an hour. However our goal was to go exploring and this hotel was perfect for that, it's close to 5th ave which is a big tourist hub with shopping, bars and restaurants. It is close to the ferry to Cozumel and makes for a perfect day trip. The events staff were wonderful with games and activities around the pool, and good evening entertainment aswell. We enjoyed our trip and would stay there again.

Wonderful stay at The Reef Coco Beach

Posted Oct 9, 2014
Pros: It is a small hotel with very attentive staff.
Location: Tours to Chichen Itza, Maroma, Xcaret, and Tulum are easy to book through the tour office at the hotel.
The staff was very kind and courteous. The Mayaland Tour office made booking excursions easy. The nightly entertainment was delightful.

First time to Mexico

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Loved the location. Close to 5th ave shopping, and right on the beach. Well set up with plenty of pool side, ocean front seats. Friendly staff.
Cons: Wifi should be an expected freebie. Wish there wasn't boats anchored out in front of the beach, & please replenish the bottled water in our rooms.
Location: Near 5th avenue shops.
My wife and I thought the hotel was very nice. I had done a lot of research on all inclusive hotels since we had never been to one, and first time in Mexico. We wanted a smaller property (peace and quiet was our main goal, and we also wanted the ability to dine without being set to a restricted reservation). This was the perfect place for that. We also wanted a location that was right on the ocean beach (not just a place that had beach access), and it hit the mark on that, too. I had read that with the all inclusive, most places only allowed you to get their house wine or draft beer, and rail drinks, otherwise there was a daily upcharge to get bottled beer, imports, and top shelf. I guess it wasn't clearly defined enough, because I thought I was going to have access to bottled beer and imports, but, I didn't see any bottled beer on site, and my wife was totally fine with rail drinks (she sampled many specialty drinks). I will say, their tap beer (Dos Equis) was great, and I drank that the whole trip. (They do offer Dos Equis Amber in the lounge bar, too.) I would definitely book the same location again. Their Italian restaurant was very good. (their beef was like a filet mignon) There are 5 places to get food during the day, and 4 bars. Daily activities to take part in. We spent 2 days just "chilling" and 2 days venturing out. It was a great relaxing, romantic getaway, and we will be going back next year.

Not for beach or breakfast

Posted Sep 8, 2014
I didn't get in the beach at all during my 5 night stay. It wasn't inviting because of the smell and all the boats parked real close to the shore. The breakfast buffet was very unhealthy except for the fruits. Everything was too much and you can tell they were left overs from the night or day before that were modified and recooked. I couldn't understand how they cooked the French toast. It was hard and with white sugar. The yogurts were overly sweet and artificial. I just wish they had salads and cooked some things simply and right. During my stay there were a lot of rain so the buffet area got drenched by the windows and at night the restaurants' roof was leaking, especially by the windows. I don't know how they handle the real rainy season and I don't know how they call this a beach resort.
