The wait staff and activity people are Top Notch, excellent excellent people.Desk could be a bit warmer but, Was very good nonetheless. The room was above average,the only issue being the hair dryer burning out. We asked twice for it top be replaced,it wasn't. However,to us, this is a very minor point. Overall our stay was great.

We had a great time at El Cozumeleno and repeatedly return to this resort for the great staff who help ensure you have an excellent vacation. Besides the people, we love this resort for the relaxed pace, the shady palapas, relaxing hammocks and excellent snorkeling. We really liked the food - however from return visits we've learned what we love... More

The facility is clean and beautiful. The dining in "The Veranda" was superb. The taste and the quality of food in The Veranda needs no changes. The buffet area needs more variety, more vegetables, and simply foods. The quality of the drinks needs strong improvements. The alcohol is poor quality and possibly watered down. Many guests related they were drinking... More

The view was wonderful. The snorkeling was great. The location was great. It was easy to rent a car at the hotel. The food was nothing awesome. You can find some stuff to eat most any day, but it is by no means top drawer. You did have to pay for bottled water and all the soft drinks were from... More

I have nothing good to say at all about this hotel- food , drinks, AC, was the worst vacation we've had in Mexico - the staff was rude also. If u expect a 4star resort you will be very unhappy. Nothing about this resort was as stated in travel booklet. Save your money or stay else where.

This hotel has a classic Mexican flavor with the comforts of a resort. Located on the north end of the island, it's a little distance from the center of town and shopping, but we liked the peaceful atmosphere. We stayed on the 8th floor and enjoyed a fabulous balcony ocean view. AC worked well, a definite must for me after... More

I loved the hotel the staff treated everyone so well and were very friendly, anything you needed they took care of right away. I did not come with children, however any child wishing a soda, or anything was treated with the same respect as adults. Very unusual to see anywhere. The bar staff was especially gracious curious and helpful, as... More
