We stayed here for a week with some friends. We got a one bedroom and they got a studio. The one bedroom was great for space usage with a small kitchenette area that we made little use of and an interesting leveloured enclosure for the bed that made it qualify as another room. Unfortunately there was only one AC unit for the room that bypassed the erstwhile bedroom and so sleeping got a little stuffy.
It was clean and the view from our balcony was stunning
Our friends room was equally as spacious or perhaps more so as square footage was the same but without the kitchenette and bed enclosure it was a wide open hotel room. Air flow was generally better. Unfortunately their bathroom communicated with the adjoining one and those folks smoked. The cigarette smoke odor wafted into their room through the bath. Blech.
WiFi was only available in the lobby.
Two pools, one for adults only, was a bonus for us. Swim up bar was nice but did close early at 5:30 though the bartenders were always nice enough to double up last rounds. In spite in the early closing time, there was no derth of drunks.
Beach is beautiful and clean with plentiful palapas and chairs, though pick your chairs carefully as some threaten to fall apart. Pick up snorkeling gear from our place and go to the hotel with the sea wall next door. On the other side of the wall, there are plenty of fish. We joined in the bocce ball one day. If you like urban decay, take a breach walk - lots of buildings left to decay after hurricane damage years ago. Rent a bike and go ride up the dirt road. The bikes are ill fitting and in need of some serious tlc but worth a spin. The workout area is small but well kept and rarely used. The spa and services are nice. We both asked for a firmer touch. I was fine with mine but husband thought his was lame. We went to the entertainment that was offered most nights and found it low tech and rather sweet. Be sure to rent a jeep and explore the other wilder side of the island. Beautiful beaches with little food and drink stands here and there.
The food was nothing to write home about but we devoured plenty of fish tacos at the outdoor cafe. Buffett food is the same about everywhere.
Over all we liked this place alot because it's a small enough place to see people over and over, meet them, and make some friends during the week, both staff and other guests. It is pretty and clean. On the other hand if there are people that are annoying you can't really get away from them either! We may not visit Cozumel again though. The economy is very American driven with even the atms spitting out American dollars. Most tourists are American and most at our hotel from Texas. The downtown is all prices in American dollars as well. We don't go to Mexico to see more America.
