Our Opinion
An amazing 4-star resort for those looking to experience luxurious and top-notch service, but are also on a budget. The resort is extremely clean, as the beach and pools are cleaned and maintained daily. There are plenty of activities available for families and children. The staff at this resort are extremely attentive and helpful. A great place to escape for an amazing price.
The always popular Cozumel classic! Situated on a small, natural beach where the calm waters are great for snorkeling. The El Cozumeleno features generously-sized guest rooms and the original tower has recently been renovated. If an active vacation is your style, try the introductory dive lesson, bike tours, and 30% discount at the island's only golf course, located across the road from the hotel. Divers enjoy unlimited shore diving when they purchase a two day, two tank dive package.
Location: On beautiful Isla Cozumel beach, 5 min from downtown San Miguel and the airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

This is my home away from home in Mexico. El Cozumeleno

Carlos the GM is wonderful to work with. Gabriel in the restaurant is in command of the staff. Roberto is wonderful at the activity desk. Antonio head of the housekeepers does an amazing job. Federico the head bellman is just the best ever! Roger new in the restaurant was good. Gerardo and Alondra and Manuel and Martha at the desk were wonderful to work with. Angie Vega who runs the spa is just amazing and a bright light in the resort.Ivan and Manuel and Maria and Nayeli were wonderful waiters with big smiles.The only problem is the lack of wifi and until that is fixed I can not return. I lost a $1100.00 piece of business because of no wifi when I needed it. So until they upgrade the wifi I will not return, which makes me said. All the housekeepers were great too!

Day Pass

Great snorkeling right off beach. Swimming pools were nice. Dining room nice. Only complaint was flies all around bar area outside by pool getting all over drinks the bartender was making. You can jump right into water off the dock and feed the fish while snorkeling . Lots for the kids to do. Putt putt course overlooking the ocean great. Outside dining room over looking the ocean as well. The pictures they have on their website are accurate to what you will see. Buffet not so great but have had worse. You can order off of menu too which is great!

Very disappointing experience for a 3.5 star in Mexico (Cozumel)

We purchased a 7 days all inclusive package in this hotel mid November 2017. Since it was a 3.5 we had very low expectations but… we did not expect to have lower standards than the 4 star in Cuba (May 2017).*** PROS: Comfortable king bed with very large room, nice swimming pools, overall clean hotel facilities despite the outdated look. Fun mini-golf and nice ocean view from the rooms and from the buffet restaurant (The coral). Front-desk and tour-desk staff friendly and helpful. Good parking lot for rentals. 10 minutes by car or 45 minutes walk to downtown or 95 pesos by taxi. Hotel felt safe.*** CONS: >>> FOOD & DRINKS: One A la carte and one buffet restaurant with poor selection of food and poor menu. Coffee: Basic regular coffee available but would need a quality upgrade and missing a good coffee expresso machine. Broader selection of bread missing, no cheese selection or cold cuts. Wine is basic served in plastic cups at the buffet diner table. Two unknown selection of beer are served, watered down like the rest of their drinks. >>> FACILITY: Poor/Missing entertainment, Gym has 3 machines poorly maintained (I would be scared to use), game room facility not indicated properly has 2 ping pong tables, 1 old soccer table and a pool table. I picked this hotel to snorkel but definitely ended up going out of the hotel to enjoy better snorkeling areas (Punta Sur, Money beach bar and Palancar beach). Beach is very small, the volley-ball court is not usable. Poor service overall at the buffet except for José.>>> BEDROOM: Worn out pillows and blankets. TV remote not working, shower head broken and missing water pressure. Outdated stained furniture in room and in lobby. Safe in the room is provided but is small and barely fits the S2 android tablet 9 inch screen. The safe is locked with a key not a code, so you always need to carry it with you. If lost you would pay 100 USD. No fridge in the room, you can rent one though. >>> BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT was being stopped by the bell boy while exiting the hotel with our beach towels visible. He advised us that the hotel beach towels cannot be taken outside the hotel despite the fact that we signed the hotel paper which indicated that if lost, we would have to pay 25 USD per towel. The front desk manager confirmed this rule, so we ended up purchasing our own. However, this rule did not seem to apply to everybody. So I guess this all inclusive hotel is a BRING YOUR OWN BEACH TOWEL if you plan to go enjoy other Cozumel beaches.So overall I would rate the hotel 3 stars for low customer service, low quality of products and outdated facility.

The service was ok but the rooms was not worth the money paid I felt like we were staying at a shack beds were very hard no hot water the A/C broke twice and they were not helpful in changing our rooms .. and the food was disappointing I thinks we lost weight being there would not go back.

Great service and awesome view !

We took a large group of Divers and non divers to this resort and loved it. The on-site dive shop is well stocked and made it so nice for advice and gear. Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The food was outstanding and the staff made sure everything was perfect. The pools and beach are very well maintained and beautiful. There’s no such thing as a bad view from this place ! We are already planning another group trip here ! Highly recommended !
