Great staff - needs an upgrade

If you are looking for no-frills all-inclusive, this resort is great for that. The staff is really friendly but bathrooms in rooms are super dated and dark. The pools were really cold even in the middle of the day which was weird to us. The buffet is good but it would be nice to have a little more variety. The pizzas off the menu are really good for a snack while you're out by the pool. They could use more chairs around the pool and on the beach because people will throw a towel on them and then never come back for hours. The beach is a little rocky but if you pick the right spots by the pier you can walk out in sand just through a small strip of rocks and shells. There is WiFi only in the lobby which wasn't really a problem for us but if there are a lot of people using it it becomes unusable slow. Overall a great trip and would definitely say got what we paid for.

Our amazing, relaxing, incredible vacation

My boyfriend and I went on our first vacation together and we stayed at El Cozumeleno. The staff was incredible. It was obvious that they try extremely hard to make everyone have a wonderful time. They were friendly and remembered our names. Some of our favorites included Russell and Gabriel. Our room was spotless every afternoon and the maids went above and beyond what I expected of cleanliness. The food in the formal dining room was incredible, and as a vegetarian, they always would help me to find things that I could eat. The snorkeling right off of the beach is fantastic! While snorkeling, we even saw several spotted eagle rays! I would recommend this beautiful resort to anyone.

Value vacation

We had a good week at Cozumeleno. The resort is a good value option, but is definitely not a luxury resort. Pros: The property is lovely, clean, and well maintained. The pools and beach were great, with nice poolside/beach service. The rooms were large and very clean. The staff were very nice, friendly, and helpful. Family friendly, not a lot of obnoxious drunks or loud late-night partying. Cons: The food is mediocre and by the 3rd day was not appealing at all (breakfast was always fine, especially with the egg/bacon grill). The bed was very hard, and the rooms could use some updating (think cheap Caribbean decor, charming but not comfortable). You are only provided one bottle of water per room, we rented the minifridge and had no issues after that (worth the extra cash). The drinks were watered down, but ask for doubles and triples and you should be fine (tipping helps!). The spa is independent of the resort, they were very nice and attentive, but my mani/pedi took 2.5 hrs and only lasted 1 day. The beach/pool chairs were fully reserved every day by 8am. The music at pool and in the buffet was odd: medleys, dance mixes of popular songs, and trance !?!? Finally, by the end of the week we were desperate to cut off our arm bands, it turns out they are very annoying. Activities: the snorkeling was nice, we rented jet skis and had fun, Zach at the scuba shop was knowledgeable and a good teacher for my discover scuba, we rented a car and went to Punta Del Sur (crocodiles :)), drove around the island (!), and had an amazing lunch at Sr. Iguanas. Shopping downtown was fun (be sure to haggle), we picked up snacks and beer at the Mega, and we had a lovely last dinner at Pepe's downtown. Bottom line: you get what you pay turns out I want better food and a more luxurious room, so next time we will probably stay somewhere else, but NOTHING about our stay was bad or negative. All in all it was a good vacation.

Hotel Description

Dive into El Cozumeleno Beach Resort, an Island Paradise

Ever wish you lived on a tropical island? You can at least visit one when you escape to an all-inclusive, diving paradise at El Cozumeleno Beach Resort. Located in the northern Hotel Zone of Isla Cozumel, just five minutes from downtown San Miguel, this family-friendly home away from home faces the clear blue waters of the Caribbean against sands so white it's tough to spot seashells.

If you're curious about Davy Jones' Locker, the diving and snorkeling opportunities near El Cozumeleno Beach Resort are second to none. Make plans for reef snorkeling, diving lessons and certification and dives to see the amazing Palancar Reef. If pirate ships are more to your liking, swab the deck of a rental sailboat, take a sunset cruise, or schedule a deep-sea fishing charter, all from one location right in front of the resort.

The landlubbers in your crew can lounge on the sands of the serene beach, hang out on the resort's pier or opt for the three-level, free-form activities pool that includes a jetted section and swim-up bar. Grab something to munch at the poolside snack bar, and then relax under the highest tier behind a waterfall or in the 10-person hot tub. If you need a more Zen-like experience, grab a spot by the "quiet" pool, while the munchkins indulge in the mushroom-shaped shower located in the children's wading pool.

On your way back to the hotel, drop your offspring off at the all inclusive kid's club before taking in 18 holes of golf at Cozumel Country Club right across the street. Designed by the Nicklaus Group, the course is not only environmentally friendly, but offers a challenge for everyone from beginners to experienced players. Gather everyone for an early evening meal at the open-air El Cocal then enjoy live entertainment available three nights a week produced by your friendly and courteous staff.

After a full day, you'll be ready for sweet dreams when you retire to an Ocean Front View room. You've earned it. You're on vacation.
