First off, a shout out at Scuba_Bob456 from Texas
This was our second trip to El Coz having been there in May ’13. When we made reservations we knew this time was prime hurricane season for the Caribbean. On our arrival it had been raining and was to continue to rain off and on during our stay. Check in was a breeze and we found ourselves on the 7th floor with a terrific view again. Remembering last May, we made sure we got a mattress topper and rented a fridge. My wife’s brother and his wife came down with us and were located 3 doors down. Although it was highly overcast wife and I went down and jumped in the clear, calm water by the long pier.
We noticed that the hotel was pretty empty all during our stay with the majority of the visitors from Mexico due to the national holiday (Diez y Seis) and made acquaintances with several of them that spoke English at the swim up bar.
After Monday (which was a holiday also) the hotel quit serving the buffet at El Cocal and provided menus for each meal. They always had the cook at the griddle during breakfast where you could order omelets, eggs, tortillas, but the normal buffet that always had fresh fruit, different mexican dishes was not provided. We always found something on the menu, no matter what time of day, and never felt shortchanged in the food department. If you didn’t like what you ordered, no problem, the wait staff would get you something else. Swim up bar was not manned as normal but you could always get a drink or drink refill by the roaming wait staff. Yaneth and Lourdes really took care of us as well as Esteban each time. We actually enjoyed our stay just as much as the busier time that was in May. We had the run of the place and received more attention by the wait staff because it was not crowded. Still impressed with the grounds keepers; always working on keeping the place spotless. Maid service was good and kept the room smelling clean and fresh due to the damp environment.
We will be back next year.
