If you are planning to frolic in the Pacific, this is not the place. There is no lifeguard, and visitors are warned to stay away from rocks and riptides, which pretty much rules out the beach. However, if you are a pool person, you'll love the huge infinity pool. The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained. But if you are paying $500 a night, couldn't they give you free internet rather than charging $15?
I was on a tour, and the tour company paid all the tips, which may have had an effect on the staff. We had to ask to be reseated from the very hot terrace to the air-conditioned dining room. Some of the dining room staff was downright surly. But if you are paying the full price you might get better service.

... signed up for a local dive, two snorkeler trips and a discover scuba program. I thought they were a mirage to be fair as they are the first people who have been to speak to me the whole time I've been coming here. I eventually lost all shade at the uncomfortable bench so went up to the pool where Tom and Nicole were doing the dsd. We went back to Playa Coco after and I went round to super compro to get ingredients for cocktail night. I had way too much stuff to cycle ...
... sell to them provided they promised to keep the
name. Very lush and a rather dark garden but atmospheric cabins at 27 USD a
night. They had good wi-fi and hot “suicide” showers. We enjoyed the relaxed
and peaceful aura of Cuahita with its smattering of holiday homes tucked into
the forest vegetation behind the beach and spent some time walking its long
beaches. However, we avoided swimming there after being warned off by the ever

Rob and I went over to another part of the resort area, Prieta Beach Club. You think you are in paradise until you visit this location and then you are on another level. There was an infinity pool that rolled right toward the beach. The beach had chase chairs along with a bed cabana. ...
