    Excellent Resort and Amenities!

    Our first time staying at the El Cozumeleno Beach Resort and it was fantastic! The room was very spacious and quiet, the bed was very comfortable and we had an awesome view from the lovely balcony. The pools were so beautiful and the nice, clean beach had easy entry where we snorkeled and saw lots of fish. All the staff were so accomodating and friendly. The food was delicious from the snack bar menu to both restaurants and offered a great selection. We celebrated a birthday and everyone went out of their way to make it so enjoyable. This was our first time to stay in this part of the island and love the location. We love Cozumel and definately will stay here again.

    Great experience!

    This was our second time to stay at El Cozumeleno, and each time was wonderful! The staff was kind and fun, the food was excellent, our room was very clean, and the activities were fun! The pools were amazing! The ocean was beautiful! We enjoyed room service two mornings, which was fabulous! We especially enjoyed our 5th floor balcony for morning coffee and evening sunsets!

    Glad we came back

    This was our second trip with our kids to El Cozumeleno. It was off season & the staff was incredible! The multiple pools were great for play and lounging. The hotel has the best walk-out snorkeling area we saw on 2 trips to Cozumel. Lots of fish!

    Top Service, great location, best beach

    We come back every year for the beach and the people that clean/cook/serve, they are like our family. I will say both visits this year (April and October) it felt like the wait staff was not as relaxed and fun as the past. Not sure if this due to an off week or the new management over the wait staff. We will be back in December to figure this out since the wait staff kindness has been reason for us returning for 6 years.
