Coco Beach Resort
Ranked #11 of 53 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Coco Beach is maybe 3 miles north of San Pedro. Beautiful spot on the beach and the property is immaculate. Pool is pristine and entertaining, bar rooms, everything is "Excellent". The staff would get a 10 out of 10 with the exception of disinformation regarding services at other hotels so they get a 9 out of 10.

Since the hotel / villas are still relatively new there is a lot that the property is missing. As of now they have no restaurant, no spa, the bar is even subcontracted out. When we asked about services the staff has been directed to basically tell people that there is no services of any type that can be had. This is a real mistake since it would be off putting to most people would not like to leave a property to get services. But......

Don't let the lack of property services scare you. The adjoining properties pretty much all have completely full services available. This means you can stay at a brand new clean pool and room and with a very short walk you can have all your meals, spa, and activities. It is the best of both worlds. A 4 star nice quite place to stay without all the crazy party atmosphere and full services within close proximity.

It would seem that the simple issues like bar foods, snacks, and a coffee pot would be a simple fix but for now that has been sort of ignored for some reason.

I would definitely stay here again. When / if they get a restaurant, coffee, and spa we would likely be a candidate for purchasing a villa.

Room Tip: They were starting construction on the hotel next door. Depending on when you book you might ask for...

Coco beach is an beautiful resort. The pools are wonderful. The people are very friendly and helpful. Larry the pool guy makes everyone feel welcome. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo over top the pool bar. It had a GREAT view of both the front pool and the ocean..
Really the only down fall of the place is there is no restaurant on the property but they do have room service. Belize is wonderful we can not wait to go back.

Room Tip: Our friends stayed in a casita pool view only but very cool places. All rooms in front of the pool b...

The Bartenders (Joe, Deon, Milton, Cesar) were so funny and friendly. Increadible how they could get a party started around the bar. They made us feel like instance friends. Belize shores restaurant staff worked so hard to make us feel welcome and were so hospitable. Larry the pool guy was always there to make sure we were enjoying our stay. No request of him was to big! Larry always greeted us every morning with flowers in his hand. Room was clean and welcoming!

Room Tip: Our suite overlook the pool and was close to front desk worked out well for us.

Coco beach resort was gorgeous!! The view was beautiful and the bar was awesome. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Larry the pool guy was the best. He was on top of everything, making sure that we had towels, chairs, etc. and he kept the pool area very clean and organized. He even showed us how to open a coconut! He went out of his way to create a heart in the sand for our honeymoon. I would recommend this resort 100%. I would recommend going during regular season, seeing as though there were many restaurants within walking distance that were closed during low season (September).

Room Tip: If you go during low season get a room with a kitchen, otherwise you're going into town for all...

This was such an awesome hotel! The views were gorgeous, the food was great, the staff was excellent! I don't know what else to say about them! The Bartenders (Joe, Deon, Milton, Cesar) were so funny and friendly. Segrit at the resort next door was excellent and friendly at the restaurant and such a hard worker. She was very open and we were able to ask her all kinds of questions and she was so helpful. The front desk was incredible setting everything up for us. While we were there we had trouble with our phone in the room and they let us make international calls from the front desk. The room was amazing. We were in E3 and I would recommend anyone who goes here to spend the money and get this room. Its directly above the bar and over looks the ocean and pools. The beaches we amazing as well with awesome little shells and fish. We had massages in our room which were amazing. I can't say enough about this resort. Its the one place we decided we would actually go back! We're already planning it!

Room Tip: Anything above the pool is amazing but they are all good! They are so spacious and everything is ver...

If you know you are going to the Ambergis Caye and need a beautiful and accomodating place to stay then Coco Beach is the place. We were slow to warm because had just come from a 5 star eco-lodge in the jungle, but after after getting acquainted with the area it is was evident that Coco Beach is far superior to all others. The pool area was absolutely amazing and worth the stay in itself! The pool accommodates honeymooners wanting privacy and families wanting to play hard. The rooms were very comfortable....A/C...hallelujah! The resort is away from a lot of the action so plan on funds to help you commute. Golf carts and water taxis are expensive. The other down side was accesibility to food. The restaurant was in a weird place, and although you could order good food poolside, it just felt strange because they had to tote the food so far. There are not many restuarants close to the hotel, hence the $$$ needed for transport or long beach walks (which were actually kinda nice).

The half day snorkel tour was by far the highlight. I have snorkeled all over the world and have never seen the diversity in species of fish and coral in my life! Absolutely amazing!

Be forewarned that they are doing construction on the building near the pools and all around the perimeter of the hotel. Also there is no wall or fence around the resort which just felt weird...like it was unfinished or something. I think they are still working out kinks, but it seems well managed and getting better every day! You won't find anything better...the next closest might be the Grand Caribe.

As soon as you step onto the dock at Coco Beach Resort you are greeted by Zoby. She has cool wash cloths on a tray to refresh you after your long journey. She then walks you pass the massage tables on the beach and through the paths along the pools and swim up bar to the reception area. There you are encouraged to quench your thirst with a Tropical rum beverage and showed to your room. Our beautiful hotel room had a wide balcony overlooking the pool with the rock water slide and sandy beach. We were guests at the end of the hurricane season, which I was told by the locals, was the best time for scuba diving and snorkeling because the waters along the reef are the calmest. We kayaked and snorkeled out at the reef, which is just as short kayak ride from the dock. Our excursions on the mainland were planned with the help of the onsite services of the Tuff E Nuff Tour Guides. The only downside was that the restaurant wasn't completed yet, so we had to walk across to the sister resort Belizean Shores, which really wasn't bad at all. It was a great time to go because we basically had the resort to ourselves. Quiet and peaceful. There is no way you won't leave here well rested and planning your next trip back.
