Our Opinion

The Occidental Cozumel is a pleasant hotel. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The buffet and restaurants in the resort have a tendency to be open during specific times, so make sure to have a flyer handy to be informed what restaurants are open. Overall this is a great all-inclusive hotel for the entire family.

Ideal for water lovers - especially divers - this hotel is located on beautiful San Francisco beach just 5 minutes by boat to Palancar Reef. Fun is sure to be had by all, from participating in the many activities hosted by the 'Fun Club' staff to dancing until morning at the on-site disco.

Location: Beachfront, 10 min to downtown Cozumel, 20 min from Cozumel International Airport.

Beautiful beach

The beach was beautiful, water clear and clean. We could snorkel and see tropical fish right off our beach. The hotel was surrounded by vegetation, flowers, trees, even some wildlife. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The quality of the food was average, but there was variety, so everyone could find something they liked. Our room and bathroom was quite big and comfortable.

Always A Perfect Vacation

Visited last December and March and returning December 11th. We love this hotel! The grounds, beach and staff are what keeps us returning. Beautiful jungle type setting that's kept immaculate. Lots of interesting wildlife to watch. We always stay Royal Level because the food is amazing and the service provided by Tomas, Rogelio and Carlos (and others) at La Caretta restaurant is like no other we've experienced, beyond excellent. Can't wait to see them in a few weeks. Had the opportunity to meet Alor (the GM) last year and you couldn't ask for a better guy. They've done great things to this resort since Barcelo took over and the place looks new and refreshed. We love it so much we are bringing our entire family this time. Looking forward to another week in paradise. I know they won't disappoint. See you soon!Shannon and Barry Mathieu

4th timer

Love this resort! Perfect for couples over 40 wanting to enjoy relaxing week. Too many resorts cater to younger crowd. This was our 4th time in a row at this resort. I wouldn't suggest staying on the Royal side- no real perk for doing so.

Good place. Food blows

The place is nice and clean. The food I’d liken to college dorm food. Make as many trips to Alberto’s as you can to eat some good food! Rooms were nice and clean. Pool was nice. The view of the ocean was exceptional. The lunch buffet was ok. It would be nice to have a grill that could prepare some food to your tastes.

Laid back mixed bag...

First the positives. Beautiful lush manicured grounds. Fabulously busy grounds keeping staff. Beach is pleasant with sun and shade. Fantastic romantic sunsets. Easy snorkeling right off the beach. Bartenders do some great drinks. Rooms are nice enough with small but pleasant patio/balcony. Friendly staff in general. Entertainment is a little weak but energetic. A diver’s paradise. Negatives. There is a persistent push to engage in timeshare purchase. The manner of restaurant service needs some enhanced customer care. Specialty venues are always unavailably booked and yet half empty. The buffet restaurants were often understaffed and/or inattentive. Perhaps turn the timeshare guys into servers. In summary, it took a day to figure out this resort and its casual atmosphere. We really liked it and hope the Barcelo group will fine tune this property to become the extra special place it could be.
