My boyfriend and I just went there for vacation for 4 days. This was our second time back at Coyaba. The first time we went there was in 2004, and we always wanted to come back. This is such a great place to go if you really want to just get away and do nothing. Although the hotel was full this time, I really felt like we had the place to ourselves. The pool and beach were never overcrowded, and the people that stay there are usually quiet and respectful. In a nutshell, here are positives and negatives: Positives -close to the airport -beautiful beach and pool area -relaxing and quiet -tennis courts, basketball court, pool table area if you get bored on the beach -watersports available (kayaking, etc.) -small gym, but useable if you really want to work out -management is very responsive to needs -other hotels near by- ritz, etc if you want a change of scenery Areas of improvement: -mixed drinks had no alcohol and expensive- go for the wine -food is just "OK"- but the chicken was really good! -service in general at the 2 restaurants and 3 bars were unreliable- at times we got ignored but then if you forgot to sign your bill they would chase you down - it is on a busy road so you really can't leave the resort by foot and it is a bit scary if you do. stick to taking taxis One more thing about the climate- this is a positive thing for me but some people may not like it- it is often very windy on the beach- but on a hot day it feels great but can get a bit chilly at night. I love this place and will go back again- although this time we might BYOB! hope this was helpful!
