This was my 3rd stay here and I wouldn't stay anywhere else for a long trip. I love the location of this hotel and having that beautiful sea as your backyard was awesome. I had requested a certain room number and was given it at check in. They remember you from prior stays and they make you feel like family... More

Amazing vacation, the staff was extremely attentive. The snorkeling right off shore was the best we experienced on the island. Our room was cleaned everyday, and other than the air conditioner being a bit loud, the floor was very quiet. The dining room was always a pleasant experience with great service and the food was well prepared and nicely presented.... More

We always stay here. The staff are always friendly and will help with any thing in reason. The food is ok but just visit the bar a few more times and you wouldn't care anyways. Sit back enjoy the sunset and peace. You always feel safe here....you can rent a car from here or take the taxi. But if you... More

Just got back, we've stayed at both ends of Cozumel and this resort has some of the finest snorkeling anywhere. The rooms are a little dated.(you actually use a genuine key) and the wrist band is ridiculous. But the staff is always helpful and willing to do whatever it takes to make you enjoy your stay.

This is our home away from home. We love El Cozumeleno. We have stayed here 6 times now and we can't wait to return in May. The employees remember us and makes us feel very welcome. We love the view of the Caribbean from our balcony and we love to watch the sunrise and sunsets. We have seen dolphins in... More

We had an amazing time here at The EL Cozumeleno. The service was great at this time of year, as it wasn't very crowded. We loved the environment. The beach was gorgeous, clean, and great for snorkeling. The drinks were fabulous and they did hold back even being all inclusive. The food in the restaurant was great, the snack bar... More

This was our 6th trip to the same resort and your right the price is right. Just starting to see the grounds are not as clean as they used to be. A lot more kids are at the resort, not a bad thing if you have kids but this is not what you want for an adult getaway. Seems like... More

For this time of year everything was very good. Having been many times before we knew this would be a slow time and maintenance would be going on. We still had a lot of fun. Our thanks go out to German, Martha and Nancy for making sure our room was good. We also would like to say that Salvador, David,... More

We recently visited this resort for a day pass. The food and drinks were fine. The pool was dirty- needed to be skimmed and cleaned. Tons of bugs in the pool. The grounds were well cared for otherwise. The ladies washroom was in terrible shape...I visited twice during our stay and it seemed to lack attention as the day went... More

El Cozumeleno was fabulous. Deluxe room was clean and spacious and balcony views were spectacular! Staff was very knowledgable and helpful and courteous. Breakfast was best meal of the day and cocktails were fabuloso! Only drawback was the evening mosquito invasion but means were taken to control as best possible. Will definetly go back!
