El Coctelito is a decent place to get a quick bite at affordable prices. It's the Mexican equivalent of an American "sports bar" with your typical bar food fare at decent prices.

Just finished up checking in at the rooms. Walk down for a cold drink. We never visited here last year, now we wish you would've stopped. Very friendly staff, and ice cold beer.

Stopped in for dinner and Cokes on New Years Day. The food wasn't anything special, though there was a nice flavor to the fajita meat.

Stayed in the north hotel zone. Stopped in here on New Year's Eve for happy hour 2x1 drinks. Good band playing. Ordered guacamole appetizer but they forgot. Then asked for a few more chips, again forgot. Across the street views of the sea are nice.

El Coctelito the favorite place from locals. Our menu is based in seafood and some variety for those who don't eat them. We have a complete bar wuth the best beverages, free WiFi, kids zone, and an amazing ocean view, where we can look the most beautiful sunsets. A place with different promotions thinking in our locals and visitors. Please, come and prove why we are the favorite place!
