    Scam Company Posadas

    We have previously had excellent experiences at the Explorean Hotel in Cozumel, which led us to book another trip this year. We even recommended the hotel to three friends, all of whom booked vacations there based on our recommendation. Initially, I booked a 5-night stay, but when our friends wanted to join us, I needed to modify the dates by a couple of days. Unfortunately, I was unable to modify the existing order, so I had to cancel the reservation and create a new one. The price per night for the modified booking was exactly the same as for the original booking. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were informed that we had only booked for one person instead of two. This was perplexing because the website defaults every booking to 2 people, and I did not make any changes to reduce it to one person. The hotel insisted that we needed to pay an additional $100 per day on top of the original price, even though the price for 2 people was the same as our original booking. The price difference between 1 and 2 people on the website is only $16, making the situation even more confusing and frustrating. The second booking we made was charged for two people, with the same price per night as our original booking. Additionally, all five of us got food poisoning/bacterial infections due to contaminated water during our stay. The customer support team ignored our inquiries for days and never responded before our vacation ended. This experience left us feeling scammed by a company we trusted and recommended to others. It's disappointing because we have always loved the hotel and recommended it to everyone. Despite these issues, the staff at the hotel itself are lovely, and it's bewildering that the corporate side would treat loyal customers in this manner.

    Explorean FTW

    We stayed here as well as the Intercontinental Presidente resorts for scuba tours during our ten day vacation and preferred this place overall because it’s a much better deal for the price and the breakfast buffet is so much better and fresher. If you're coming for scuba both have piers conveniently located near breakfast for early morning scuba pickups. So great for grabbing a bite with or gear and then heading straight out for our dives! Explorean included all drinks and food whereas the Presidente did not, we missed being able to grab a ceviche or meal and beverages by the beach at all hours after our diving plus included excursions for days when we didn’t dive. We saw a cenote via a short bike ride with guides Julio and Armando one morning that was absolutely fabulous with included drinks and food, and there were activities like live music, casino night, and acrobatic acts every evening. Both resorts were nice and quiet at night in our large rooms, but the Explorean has bigger sized king beds, legit reading lamps bedside, and bathrooms in their more modestly priced casitas plus blackout curtains which the Presidente didn’t have even in our upgraded poolside rooms. The Presidente gets points for better snorkeling, design, tennis courts, and pool numbers and upkeep, however.

    Great Vacation!

    Just spent a fantastic week at The Explorean! The staff really makes this resort such a treasure! It was so nice to have the beach area open again. Such a beautiful area. From the delicious breakfasts served by Luis, Joe, David and Gloria to the memorable dinners with Manuel and Gabriel, Lool K'an was our favorite place. We enjoyed the Rosato with Luis and the Mexicano with Fermin. The Cevicheria was such a great place to enjoy the beautiful scenery, along with the delicious fish and shrimp tacos. So nice to see Jose and Glendy! We always enjoy the included excursions - especially the buggy tour, el Cielo, and Dzul Ha. Edgar, Gerardo, Armando, Julio and Nestor are such fun, knowledgeable and enjoyable guides. They're like family! This was our seventh time at The Explorean and we are looking forward to our visit again next year. Thank you for the wonderful memories!!

    Outstanding staff! Beautiful place!

    My friend & I had a wonderful stay at the Explorean. The jungle setting was beautiful & relaxing. All of the staff were outstanding. They were so welcoming & made our whole visit special. I was especially impressed with the activity team, Jassiel, Nestor, Julio, Armando, Edgar, Vega (along with Epi & Luis on the boats). They made every effort to see that we had a lot of fun. They got to know us & also shared stories of their own lives. We were there for 14 days & asked for a repeat of our favorite excursion, El Ceilo & they scheduled it 2 more times with visits to different parts of the reef. Breakfast & lunch were very nice at Explorean's restaurant, Lool Kan. We enjoyed dinner there, but would have liked more menu choices. It was great that meals & facilities at the Fiesta Americana were also included. The Asian restaurant, Peninsula, had amazing food & excellent service. Our favorite place for breakfast was the beach club buffet looking out at the ocean. The food was so good (& protected from the birds) along with attentive service. The hostess there, Alejandra, knew our name by the 2nd visit & where we liked to sit. She also asked us specifics about the restaurants we went to & how they could improve them. It was nice to have Mexican breakfast options there too. My favorite were the delicious tacos Virginia made me every morning. Some of the waiters knew our beverage preferences & had them at our table soon after being seated. Our favorite lunch spot was at La Cevicheria with savory seafood & an amazing view of the shimmering ocean. One night was special with a buffet dinner on the beach followed by a fire show. Most of the FA night shows were good, but the amplified music would have been much better at half volume. We appreciated the quiet nights at the Explorean. The room was simple, very clean, with ample big towels, comfortable bed & pillows as well as a regularly stocked mini bar. I loved the beautiful fresh flower arrangements & amazing jungle view from our balcony. I would have liked a few more storage drawers. One of our favorite activities is snorkeling. Really enjoyed the crystal clear water & variety of sea life right in front of the hotel as well as during the included excursions. Muchas gracias to the Explorean staff for an amazing visit!

    Like visiting family...

    We have been to Explorean three times now. The staff are amazing. The food is delicious and abundant. There is a private pool and hot tub and we enjoy the exclusive restaurant and bar area. The rooms are immaculate and so peaceful. There are no TVs, which is great! They are quiet and secluded. I would like to give special thanks to Gabriel, Manuel, Joe, and Arcadia. You all made us feel as if we were visiting long-lost friends. We will be back ASAP!
