Our Opinion

From our experience, it seems vacationers either love or hate this resort. It's located pretty far north of Puerto Vallarta in a small fishing village which is either a positive or negative depending on your tastes. It's a 3 star with good value and often comes up at a very attractive price. If you are looking to relax in an authentic Mexican setting, this is a great place for that. Lots of charm along with friendly service in a lovely Mexican atmosphere. However, if you're not comfortable in a 3 star resort or want to be closer to Puerto Vallarta, then the Decameron Los Cocos probably isn't the hotel for you. Take a look at their sister resort, the Royal Decameron Complex in Riviera Nayarit, its our most popular, value resort in the Puerto Vallarta area.


Overlooking beautiful Rincon de Guayabitos Bay, the very affordable Decameron Los Cocos is a colonial Mexican style property that spreads out over many acres of a typical Mexican fishing village. Located right on the beach front in the midst of this fisherman's village, Decameron Los Cocos is the ideal location to enjoy the most spectacular vacation or romantic honeymoon. A great all inclusive resort to sit back and relax and enjoy a real Mexican way of life.

Location: On a small beach in Rincon de Guayabitos Bay, 90 minutes to downtown Puerto Vallarta, 20 minutes from the Beach Club and 60 minutes drive from the airport.

Beach trip

Trip was an average all inclusive group bus trip. Hotel was so-so. There was a lot of free food and drinks but also a lot of noise. Construction starting very early and if you have children it might be better. This was my first experience and will not plan on returning.

Excellent week at the Decameron Los Cocos

My husband and I spent a week from November 19-26/16 at this resort and had a fantastic time there. I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the assistant manager Isaac Garcia for his overwhelming kindness and excellent service. Isaac, you made my birthday the best one I have ever had in my life. You are a "Prince of a man". Muchas gracias!!! I would also like to thank a very special lady in Guest Services the lovely Maythe Villalon for her help and kindness. I would also like to thank the amazing housekeepers Xochiti Deleon and Alma Garcia. Muchas gracias amigas. You rock!!! Thanks also to our amazing waiter Bory and our fabulous bartender Chris!!! This was our first time at this resort and we will definitely return. This staff are an amazing group of people!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Veronica Lukasch.

Late Review

Stayed here last year over Christmas and had a great vacation. Food was hit or miss as was the wine but we got what we paid for. Staff were very nice and the beach bar was excellent. Chris was such a great host. It was really noisy at this hotel but great value for money so not complaining. Will go back if price right. Use coconut oil as a bug repellant as it kept my bites to a minimum.

We had a good time, but.

The place is getting pretty run down, they tore down one of the buildings of rooms and the construction starts at 6:00aam and is noisy. They tore up the snack bar while we were there, food was ok. Chairs on the beach were never cleaned. Wifi is only in 1 section up above and too much to get to. But we had a good time and the staff was really nice except one bartender girl we didn't care for, she was not friendly at all.

Quiet pool/adults only has been re-instated by management

Just returned two week stay. Management changed back to adult only in building 4 pool and the "oasis of calm" was immediately restored.Stayed in "Superior" room in building 4 and found the slight additional cost to be well worth it. Those with mobility issues might find the stairs (in our case 68 stairs to room 4201) somewhat daunting. There are no elevators in the building.As before the hotel staff are outstanding. Do not have a single adverse comment.Took most meals at building 4 "La Bamba" restaurant. Breakfast and lunch were in fact better than dinner. Table Service always outstanding.Tips:.Bring pesos. Exchange rate at hotel was 11 for 1 Canadian when international was 15 1/2 to one. No U.S. exchange rate was offered and no "cambios" were noted operating in Rincon although full busy season not yet in operation. There is a "bank" machine at the Pemex OXXO. Best to avoid ATM's in stores as there has been a history of problems. There is a full service BANCOMER in La Penita - take your passport.For Canadians - banks in cities like Vancouver can provide pesos within three banking days of ordering. I took 7000 for two weeks with no bills bigger than 200. You get a wad of cash but most can be placed in safety deposit box. Remember one 20 peso bill is equivalent to one U.S. dollar. Canadians - do not bring loonies and toonies for tipping as Mexican banks will not exchange metal money for those holding same.- Wifi is in a word "terrible" and apparently has been that way for a while. Most people unable to access e-mail. Work related wifi was impossible. Apparently the same problem is not elsewhere in the community nor in the Royal Decameron in Bucerias.- Many visitors have been coming to the resort for years so that speaks well of the hotel. - Package tours through Transat include airport transfers. Hotel does not offer that service.Overall pleasant holiday.
