    Escape to Explorean Cozumel

    Covid has changed the way we travel and vacation in such a short time and The Explorean Cozumel has adapted well. We arrived on June 13 to Fiesta Americana only two days after the hotel opening, following the 4 month Covid hiatus. My review for that sister hotel can be found separately. The day before our departure of our two week stay, we heard the Explorean would be reopening and we made a flight change in order to stay another week. Our original reservation had been for this hotel but due to it not being open, they had moved us to the Fiesta Americana in order to honor our reservation. The reviews and photos had looked so fabulous we just had to try it out. Let me first say that once I walked through the grounds it is exactly as portrayed in the photos and descriptions. A place of peace and tranquility nestled into the jungle creates a true paradise. The rooms are serene, the restaurant is excellent and the staff are there for your every need. Speaking of staff, two stood out for our week stay. Roberto and Alfonso... When we wanted dessert in room one of them would always deliver it to the room with a smile. Roberto greeted us from the first day, chatted with us and made us feel at home always making sure we had any food, drinks, snacks, desserts, towels we needed. His goal was to ensure that we relax and have no worries during our stay. He notices the details and is always striving to give you a “Perfecto” experience. Bringing the desserts and drinks to our cabana, we never had to move if we didn’t want to. Our last day we arrived after a day of diving to find that our favorite cabana was set up just like we liked it and awaiting our arrival. Alfonso, our waiter, was also excellent. Alfonso went the extra mile several times for us. After a night dive in which we arrived at 9:50 pm at the hotel looking like a mess and starving, he ushered us from the lobby into the dining room ensuring us that we were not too late and he would get us seated. He did so and served us an excellent meal and did not rush us even though we had arrived at closing time. Another day, he was working at the Fiesta Grill and had seen us come in from diving and head to the taco shack. To our surprise, we looked up to see him delivering cheladas (which he knows we love during the afternoon) to our table. These two truly made our experience one to remember and we hope to return in September. We will book at the Explorean due to all the great experiences listed above.

    Great family vacation

    This is our 3rd trip here. My son loves it. This year is a bit different due to Covid but they are keeping everything sanitized and social distancing. Our excursions have been fun. Luis and his group have been helpful and friendly. There is not as much staff as usual and the capacity is at 30% so you have to consider that in the wait staff etc. still excellent trip and beautiful snorkeling right at resort.

    This was our second trip to the Explorian, and it sure did not disappoint!! We again were treated like family. The crew did an amazing job with our 30th anniversary dinner. A special thanks to our dessert chef Alfonso for going out of his way to make every dinner a special one!! We hope to see you all soon!! Mike and Linda Dodd

    Great Vacation

    The service and facilities are fabulous. The included excursions are very well run and informative. If you want to get out on the island, see and learn history, and have an overall good experience, we recommend Explorean Cozumel.
