My wife and I just returned from Cozumel on 03/12/06. We stayed at the El Cozumeleno and we really enjoyed ourselves. We are RCI members and we are very used to staying at 5 star resorts. This place was not 4 or 5 star but it was clean and the staff was very accomodating. My wife has to travel with... More

We again had a wonderful time at the el Cozumeleno Beach Resort. This was our 3rd visit. We were so glad to see them up and running. I know the beach will be back to perfect before too long. We dont mind the food at all. We ate breakfast and dinner in the outside diningroom and the bar area for... More

Thought I give you an update on Cozumel. As Mark Twain said, reports of its demise are greatly exaggerated. In general, most of the town looks as if nothing happened. Talking to some of the merchants, they reported it was a mess but cleaned up quickly. They are used to this type of stuff and had things p[acked up. I... More

We had kids with us ranging from age 3 to 16 they all had a blast. the kids club did a wonderful job. There were... More

Just got back from a 1-week stay. Overall, the resort itself is beautiful -- the pools, the ocean, the rooms are nice and big -- seemed very clean. I was hoping they would have included an island tour (either via bus or boat, but not for diving) for those who didn't want to snorkel or dive, but no such luck.... More

We stayed at the El Coz from Feb 18-25 and had a fantastic time. This was our fourth trip to Cozumel and our second tour of duty at the El Coz. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously there in Feb 2003 and based on that we decided to return. We have stayed at the Melia and the Iberostar in the past and... More

I stayed for 3 days at The El Cozumleno in early February. The rooms were spacious and always clean. The view from our balcony was beautiful. The hurricane damage was evident from the road, but you need to look beyond that. The hotel staff was the friendliest I have ever encountered! Always there with smiles on their faces. I'm sure...

We stayed at the El Cozumeleno from 2/17 thru 2/24. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the second we walked in the lobby on the first day until we left on the last day. We traveled with another couple...all of us being in the mid 20's. The first day we arrived the outdoor restaurant was closed due to... More

We just returned from a week at El Cozumeleno and I hate to say we were a little disappointed. We were there with a group of four families with children from ages 12-16. There was absolutely NOTHING for the kids to do in the eveinings. The disco wouldn't allow them to dance, the mini golf course closed early, besides how... More
