Reviewed 19 February 2016

Room was beautiful and well equipped. Unfortunately it was located in very close proximity to an eternal, loud bistro with a limited play list. Very noisy. Lost my safe key, and it took two days to get the safe open. Free wifi practically non-existent and spotty.

Room Tip: Get the bottom floor.

cocorio, Gerente at Coco Rio Playa del Carmen, responded to this reviewResponded 22 February 2016

Hello and thank you for the comment, it´s a pleasure for us read it so we can count it and offer to our gusts a better service.

About the noise: next to us there is a hotel who plays a live music three nights per week, they finish at 11:00 pm, and it is being going for years already… , everyone who is coming to Hotel Coco Rio knows that we are located in between of the principal avenues in Playa del Carmen wich is also a plus, cause you have everything near to you it is normal because of our location the flow of the people and movement cause a little bit of noise, but inside our hotel we offer the most tranquility we can.

About the safe box: it was reported in the night around 09:00 p.m; it was impossible to fix it at that time in the night, but we fix it as soon as possible the next day when the shops are open and at 8.00 a.m the next morning we could get a worker to solve it.. maybe the gust confused the day…
Thank you so much!!

This is a very small and very cute little hotel. The rooms are very clean y comfortable. It has no elevators and 3 floors, so be prepared. The location is fantastic, almost on 5th avenue and very near the most popular beach clubs (such as Mamitas). I higly recommend this hotel, it has style and great prices. Loved it there!

Nice little hotel, 5th street has grown and even the side streets are too. Use to be once past constitution it got quieter but restaurants and bars are just cranking music from 8am til 3am sometimes. Deep base that just pounds. Very difficult to sleep. WiFi was very weak. Best signal was outside room on bench. Staff seems put out by any requests. Did not go out of say to impress or even wish you back again.

Firstly I will say the rooms are beautiful and in a very convenient place for both the beach( which has its own issues) and the centre including 5th avenue. Sadly there were several let downs in our stay. The first is that we didn't get given our beach towels for 3 days, we had assumed they didn't come with the room as it is fairly cheap here. Secondly the rooms lack basic stuff, no coffee facilities, although there is a machine in the lobby. It also lacks decent wifi in the rooms. Which isn't essential for a holiday of course, but with only 25 rooms approx it would be an easy fix. Thirdly the breakfast included is for a restaurant around the corner, the restaurant itself is lovely and we have eaten there for other meals, but the breakfast included is a "continent breakfast", this consists of 4-6 incredibly small pieces of sometimes warm bread sometimes burned toast. 9 slices of fruit 3 pineapple 3 melon and 3 watermelon, these slices are 2 cm by 6cm max. This is accompanied by a small ramekin of yoghurt, coffee and juice. Needless to say it barely touches the sides and whilst presented well is not worth the price on the room you pay as you could use money to buy a proper breakfast.
These things are all minor our biggest disappointment came from the member of staff angelo who, upon our arrival, said "he was the man for tourist info and tours. We had already booked xplor so wanted to know the cheapest way to get there, he said he would get us a taxi for 150 pesos each way and said it would pick us up at 8am on the day. Come 8:15 we flagged our own taxi and managed to negotiate the price down to only 30 pesos more the. We would have paid through angelos "friend". We gave him the benefit of the doubt however and booked a dolphin swim through him. Again after being told he will get us a great deal we give him the cash to collect our tickets. We collected them on the 8th of November ready for our trip on the 11th. On the 10th of November angelo gives us a second ticket saying the times had changed with no real explanation why but it was all the same. When we got to the dolphin discovery we had only got the encounter package which had no swimming with the Dolphins. Baring in mind we specifically asked for this we checked the price of the encounter online. It was 20us dollars cheaper per person than we had paid angelo. I feel ripped off by the experience and it ruined the last bit of our holiday. Only stay here if you are looking to be on cheap hotel budget, but most importantly book any experiences through anywhere else than here.

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.
Good variety of food, fantastic service, spacious rooms, mouth quenching beverages. Only area for improvement would be the entertainment pretty repetitive after you've watched one you've watched them all!
