Great Value

Been here a few times. Nice relaxing resort. Nothing fancy. Plain and simple. Exactly what I wanted. Good service. Not a huge variety of food, but tasty. Beach is lovely. I love snorkeling, and this water is gorgeous! Take some bread to feed the fish out front in the water. They will gather around you, and eat right out of your hand. Great place for the money you pay. Very reasonable.

Beautiful Resort - But Needs Some Updates

We had two couples in our group. One of the couples had visited El Cozumeleno several times in the past, but it had been several years. The other couple had never been to El Cozumeleno before this trip. First, the resort was beautiful, the beach was amazing, with lots of room to snorkel and swim, and the pools were gorgeous. El Cozumeleno is located on the northern part of the island, and is a short, very inexpensive taxi ride from downtown San Miguel. The food in the buffet area was ok. It got old eating the same thing day after day, though. There is a reservations-only restaurant, but there is a dress code that requires long pants and close-toed shoes - no shorts or flip-flops. Had we known this beforehand, we would have come prepared. They do drop the dress code requirement starting at 9:00 PM, but that is a little late for dinner, so we only ate in that restaurant once - the food was amazing, though! The rooms were nice and large and had great balconies with ocean views, but the furniture, specifically the pull-out couch, was in terrible condition and was badly in need of replacement. It looked like it had been in a flood or something, and we covered it with towels before sitting on it. Finally, it was difficult to keep the room cool. We kept the heavy shades pulled the whole time, and it still struggled to get below 80 degrees F in the room. All in all, we had a wonderful time, and I can't say enough how amazing the staff was.

Mothers Day Vacation

This was our 7th trip to this resort. The service was excellent thanks to Oscar, Freddy, Helen, Angel, Miguel, Manuel, Juan, Gabriel and skinny Miguel. There were very few people at the resort so there was no buffet, meals cooked to order, The food was good. Snorkeling was excellent. The only downside is that the beds are hard. I will be back.

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.
