Decameron Los Cocos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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.
The facility was nice and the staff throughout the hotel were a delight. They were very attentive and took actions immediately when there was a concern . They carried themselves with pride and were very professional. Food was amazing. The beach was nice. Only problem was that we left our beach towel on our beach chairs which were located right in front of the hotel, with security just a few chairs away to get a drink and it was stolen. I lost mine and had to pay $25/ for it.The next day we brought our own towels, to avoid paying for lost towels.Overall the trip was good
I have visited that hotel twice and both times it was a nice experience. Service is good, the place is clean and well maintained. At the beach there are fun activities. Cost is affordable for most travelers. That's why it's recommendable.
Excellent trip and very inexpensive. Food was great and the staff are awesome. One phone call and they upgraded our room at no charge. Make sure to check out the adult only pool as it is nice and quiet and no line ups for cocktails or food.
If only for the vibrant colors, this resort would earn the label "stunning." But it deserves this label for many reason: the helpful staff, the numerous pools, the fabulous restaurants, and the gorgeous setting on a two km beach.The resort is crowded by other buildings on every side, yet it maintains its character. The five buildings are attractive and the rooms are very clean. The food is delicious and the drinks flow freely. The only drawback was the enormous crowds that packed the beaches of this fishing village over the Easter weekend. This place is incredibly popular. It seems if half of Mexico was holidaying there. Tents were set up right up to the water line, except right in front of the resort which maintains a little privacy that way, so that people could enjoy some protection from the sun and even sleep there. Not a room was available anywhere in Guayabitos during those few days that we were there.The rooms for the most part are small but adequate. Those in Building 4, where we were, are large and less noisy, although one night a band played across the street until midnight. We were there with an other couple. The hotel was unable to give us rooms that were side-by-side, but were still near each other. The food was excellent and plentiful, even if it was not haute cuisine. All of us enjoyed ourselves immensely.The service was great, with special credit to "Alex" who went over board in her helping us.
Just returned from eight days at Los Cocos. Have to say it was better than expected. Chose a superior room in building 4 which is up the hill from the rest of the resort. Was very surprised when I was assigned a penthouse suite with two bedrooms and four queen beds...all for a solo traveler! The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean and the attendants always made sure that toiletries and bottled water were replenished.I was there over the Easter weekend so it was very busy as Mexican families flocked to the beach for their vacation and while a bit loud (Mexicans don't seem to do anything quietly) everyone was friendly and respectful.The food at the all inclusive resort was always interesting...mainly Mexican...and there was a lot of variety. The al la carte restaurant (reservations required) was very good with attentive service.As a solo Canadian traveler I was a bit apprehensive about my trip but soon found lots of company with folks from Toronto, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC.The guests were about two thirds Mexican and one third Canadian and it seems everyone made an effort to be friendly and accommodating.During my last night at the resort, I was adopted by a large extended Mexican family who spent the late evening with me on the beach as they tried to teach me some Spanish.Just a fabulous experience I will never forget.One tip...as soon as you arrive...go to the beach and buy a very large plastic tumbler for 20 pesos...you'll be needing it at one of the three bars offering fantastic Margaritas.
