“Going back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Just returned from my second visit in three months and once again the staff and hotel didn't disappoint. As many guests I met said; it's a 3-star resort with 5-star food and service. The service in the various restaurants is second to none and I've never seen an empty food tray in the A-la-Carte's yet. Special shout out to Juan Carlos, Letania and Martha for your fantastic service and entertainment in La Bamba, you guys are too much fun. I've never been to a resort where staff are so attentive, if you need something just ask and that includes the bars and restaurants. The people who visit the hotel are all down to earth and fun as well. Free wifi is available throughout the complex and there's a good chance you will get it in your room or balcony. If you're looking for a reasonable priced holiday, you won't be disappointed with the complex, food or location.

Room Tip: Building 4 if you want a quiet time around a fabulous pool with a view. Late check out and you'...

We Stayed at the Decameron Los Cocos from February 16 to March 2. We were on the first floor of Block 1. It was close to beach, restaurants, bar and the morning coffee station. After asking people why they chose this resort I think the general consensus would be good price. As most of the previous posts have stated, the rooms are very basic but comfortable. beds were comfortable. As many people have mentioned, the staff is absolutely wonderful. The location is awesome, close to the beach, great for walks. Vendors can be annoying but I it is just a part of the Mexican way. Food was ok, always lots to eat, however we found that the second week we were eating out a lot, trying some of the local restaurants, which were all great. Some of the restaurants we tried were El Delfin, for pizza, Wanda’s Flame Burgers, Mona Lisa Pizza, Beso del Sol Steak House (delicious ribs), Salvador’s on the beach for shrimp, and Latitude 21 on the beach for delicious steak and Guayabitos Hotel restaurant for a good club sandwich.
The Beach club in Los Ayala was great for a little change. I absolutely loved the town of Rincon de Guayabitos. I can see why so many Canadians spend the winter here. But the best part about this resort was the wonderful fellow Canadians we met.

Loved this resort! Stayed there in February. So much to do, the activity staff were great - especially Samuel. The rooms were clean, the resort was safe, loved the beach. Pools were small. Met a lot of Canadians there, a lot of guests were repeat guests. I highly recommend this resort!

Room Tip: Building 3 near the tennis courts

Last Minute for 7 nights to escape the snow and my husband and I have been to the Royal Decameron in Riviera Nayarit on several occaisons.
ROOMS
Booked Cocos 4 but not available when checked in. No King or balcony but at least we got Non Smoking. Ended up in Cocos 1 4th Floor Room 1420.
As another reviewer has aready said. " Motel 6 " era. Says it all. Rooms basic, but very clean.
You could see daylight thru door frames and windows, so be prepared to be awaken with people chattering and kids running by.
FOOD
Honestly, Breakfasts and lunches were always good and consistent. Suppers however tended to be quite bland. Asian Night not bad. Mexican Night not good.
Only one opfion for meals at Buffet, but the A La Carte could be reserved for supper.
Tip: Go to breakfast and lunch at La Bamba for non reservation meals. Quiet and good food. Fish always fresh and we usually made Fish Burgers.
DRINKS
I think they were watered down, but beer and wine pretty fair.
BEACH
Nice with safe warm water.
Be prepared for a steady parade of street vendors every 5 minutes.
There is also a daily shuttle up the road to their Beach Club. Nice variety with food, drinks and pool.
SHOWS AND DISCO
Did not try shows, and disco was usually empty.
ENTERTAINMENT
Weekly Karoake is VERY loud and intrusive during your evening meal. At the very least they should turn it down as you cannot talk during meal or hear your TV from our location.
STAFF
Totally awesome. We could not fault their friendliness and efficiency. Service was fast, rooms and grounds very clean. A special recognition to Enrigue at Cocos Pool Bar. Security Guard Brian.Rueben Q in Buffet, Leonardo the server and Martha the cook in La Bamba
SUMMARY
Good if you can get a last minute price. We are in our 60's and enjoyed the the Adult Pool. Resort seemed to attract an older crowd who were in bed by 11pm. A definate no for singles. WIFI very god and free. I could even get WIFI from our room.
Pool and Beach chairs so very hard. Pack an air bed.A small adaptor a limited wall plugs. Shampoo and hairdryer.

Room Tip: Cocos 4 best for adults. Room 1420 got WIFI in Cocos 1

The location is great, we had a room on the ground floor, and found the noise level very high, starting at 4 in the morning when the staff arrived to prepare the breakfast buffet, and right throughout the day and night. Perhaps at the upper building would be quieter, but you are not on the beach. If it is a romantic get away that you are looking for, then this is definitely not the place, lots of kids and crying babies (again throughout the night). Pools are small, but bery clean, the beach is great, lots of chairs and loungers, we dined at the buffet and the one other restaurant, the food was average, except for the chicken, wow, great chicken dishes. The beach bar is close to the beach and the buffets and a full selection of mixed cocktails and Ceasars for the Canadian's :) Next rip to Guayabitos, will stay at the other end of the beach, less noise and kid's, perhaps the Casablanca.

Room Tip: There are no ocean front rooms, because of the way the buildings are placed. If you are looking for...

If you like a nice clean quiet and mostly full of Canadians then this is the resort for you.
The resort is very friendly clean and small and the best part close to a bunch of little shops and great local restaurant. The food at the resort is good too. They are on top of food safety constantly checking the food temp at the buffet and breakfast lunch and dinner.
