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:
-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!
