We stayed at this resort from Sept. 22-29. We traveled with friends and each had an ocean view king room. The rooms were well appointed and and the bed was very comfortable. Check in was a breeze as was checkout. The food was very good. There weren't enough guests at the resort the earlier part week to have the buffet so we ordered off of the menu. Breakfast and lunch menus had many choices and the dinner menu changed daily. On Thursday night, a large group ( 200) arrived for the weekend so the resort reverted to the buffet for breakfast . lunch and dinner, again with many excellent choices for each meal. The staff was the best and I will admit we got really spoiled because there were so few rooms full. The housekeeping was great but they started at the main floors and worked there way up, floor by floor. We were on the 5th floor so consequently, our room wasn't cleaned to very late in the afternoon. One day we were going out for the evening and had to tell the housekeepers to skip our room because we needed to shower and dress for our evening out.. The only drawback I can think of is not the fault of the resort, but the very aggressive "no see um's" and mosquitoes. We asked about the possibility of spraying the grounds but were told some people are bothered by the spray so we went onto San Miguel (downtown) and bought insect spray that contains 25% DEET. The spray I brought along had only 7% DEET and it acted as a "Special sauce" for the buffet that was me. I have around 200 bug bites. I highly recommend this resort and will return, this time with insect spray the highest percentage of DEET I can find.

Great experience for the price

I stayed at El Cozumeleno for 5 days/4 nights for $390 INCLUDING round trip flights (found a great deal on Travelocity, I still don't understand how I came across such a great deal). For the cost, I was amazed. If I had paid $500 for the 4 nights, I would not have been impressed. The room was large, had 2 queen beds, and overlooked the stage where shows took place most nights. The A/C was more of a swamp cooler than an actual A/C, it was very dated, the food was edible, but not super tasty, but the beach is BEAUTIFUL. I went the first week of May, and during the week, it was very slow and empty, which was nice. During the weekend, there were a lot more visitors and we had to get up early to secure our lounge chairs and umbrella on the beach. I would recommend this for a laid-back vacation with a few friends, but would not recommend El Cozumeleno for a party group or honeymoon. If I landed that deal again, I would definitely go back, but if I had to pay more than $80/night, I would look for somewhere nicer/newer.

We originally visited Cozumel 13 yrs ago through a Carnival cruise. We always wanted to go back and stay on the island. We finally did it. I picked the El Cozumeleno Resort by chance and pictures. It was a very pleasant surprise! The all inclusive resort was wonderful. The staff were very friendly attentive and accommodating. The food was tasty, the grounds were clean and the location was good. You can walk to a couple of restaurants serving burgers and other American food if you get tired of Mexican cuisine. There is also an excellent restaurant called The Lobster House. They have a limited menu, but if you love lobster tails, this is the place to go. I picked the largest tail I could find and it was only $32! They charge market price by weight and the lobsters are caught in the waters surrounding the island. I would give the resort a five star if they would do a little upgrading. The rooms need much better beds. We had to ask for better mattresses and/or padding 3 nights in a row. The bathrooms could use updating. Other than that, the hotel, staff, food and amenities were well worth it!!! Our special thank yous go out to Gabriel, Victor, Helen, and Yaneth! You were all wonderful!
