Travellers' Choice
From the moment you arrive at The Reef Coco Beach, you’ll feel the essence of a genuinely Mexican beachfront town. This intimate, relaxed, and locally- owned property has an easygoing vibe, but with all of the amenities of a top hotel resort on the Riviera Maya. Enjoy the friendly service, lavish buffets, expansive pool, and activities for both kids and adults. Wander off property to nearby 5th Avenue to take in the bustling sites, restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping of the world-famous strip. How Do You Prefer to Playa? Our all-inclusive packages are designed for the guest who enjoy knowing that all meals and major amenities are taken care off as soon as they book. But, unlike other Playa del Carmen resorts, The Reef Coco Beach also offers a bed + breakfast option, where guests enjoy the flexibility of paying as they go - with the exception of our premium continental breakfast, which is included.

Hotel's Favourite
We are currently staying at this hotel and I feel I have to write a review! We have a 7 & 5 year old and have been blown away by how good this place is. We are staying one week all inclusive. As a small resort, and knowing resorts in Mexico can be ‘hit or Miss’ , we were nervous about our stay. However, every single member of staff has been wonderful and they can’t do enough for you. The kids club activities are so fun - the kids made chefs hats and cookies one day and the next made craft piñatas before having a piñata party after. They seek out families to make sure all children are invited to attend these fun activities and the staff are so happy and energetic. Adrianna and Maria have been AMAZING with our kids - the kids don’t want to leave! Honestly, they are very special people. Poolside, there are plenty of beds available and the place is so clean. They have mini golf, table tennis, pool and other activities for you to enjoy and throughout the day there is a lot to get involved in - again, the staff make a huge effort here. There was even a singer and saxophone player poolside to entertain people! The food is great - big selection (and a kids area with the standard chips, plain pasta, fish fingers, pizza and veggies etc). The drinks also are great. There is a poolside snack bar which is such a bonus if you don’t fancy the buffet or restaurants. There is a kids pool, jacuzzi and big main pool with easy steps access and steps on the side and places for loungers in the pool. Covid measures are great. Everyone wears a mask, they take your temperature on entry and spray the rooms and public areas daily. The buffet is served to you by chefs and everyone is very respectful. The buffet overlooks the sea and is gorgeous. The hotel is a 1 minute walk from a pharmacy and 7-11 convenience store. 5/10 minutes away there are lots of restaurants and stores / markets which are lovely to explore. The hotel arranged a hire car for us (MUCH cheaper than the airport - I think we pay $65 a day ALL IN) and it’s a lovely car. We have traveled to local cenotes and lagoons for snorkelling which is well worth doing. There are no hard sells at this hotel like others we have been too.. they are all genuinely really friendly people. They also all speak amazing English! Nobody expects a tip (although they work so hard, they deserve it!). Ive also booked an 80 minute spa treatment on Sunday (massage, facial and scrub) for only $95 - this is great value. Beds are comfy, showers hot and a mini fridge is stocked with lots of drinks. TV shows Spanish and English channels (probably more but we’ve stuck to cartoons!) WiFi is great. We were expecting a standard hotel that we could crash in as we explored playa del Carmen and tulum but this place has been such a find, we haven’t wanted to leave much!! The ONLY downside is the beach and sea is full of seaweed (not the hotels fault, they have workers out at 6am clearing it), so it can be a little smelly when the wind and sun are strong.. I mean that’s all I can think of of any sort of negative. The sea is strong and it’s not really swimable at the moment- however it’s next to a public beach and it makes for a really nice walk. Finally, I highly recommend you book this place. You won’t be disappointed!

We stayed four nights at this hotel and found the location, attention and amenities to be great. We did not do the all-inclusive option knowing we would be doing day trips and not spending much time at the hotel. It's also so close to Quinta Avenida with ample food and drink options. The pool at the hotel was great and the beach chairs and lounges were also very nice and comfortable. The beach area itself was rather small but there is plenty of beach in both directions from the hotel. In fact, the public access beach is right next door and it's very nice as it's not full of hotels. It's just sand and sea and green areas. The boats in front of the hotel also make the view from the hotel very picturesque. The staff was great, very attentive and helpful and the breakfast buffet was excellent. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're looking for an affordable resort near Quinta.

Can't say enough about the staff, all great people. The entertainment staff, bartenders and lobby staff were all excellent! This was a much smaller resort than what we normally visit, so food and activities are very limited. There are several poolside activities for children but little for adults. The beach had seaweed and too many boats in the water close to the beach area. The is also public beach on each side to the resort's beach allowing random people to walk up to the resort. Over all it is clean and friendly but small so food and activities are limited.
