We spent 5 nights in the Deluxe Balcony room on the 3rd floor. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for. It's right on the beach, so you have to enter from the sand. It's a block off the main strip so you won't hear any of the noise from the street at night. All we heard each night was the gentle pounding of the surf. Our room had a TV with enough English language channels to keep us entertained before bed, and a DVD player. We had a fridge with complimentary beer, soda and water. Each day we returned to an impressive towel decoration on our bed. The free breakfast was great--pancakes, waffles or eggs(and not the rubbery, assembly line type you get in the US chains, but made to order). We loved eating right on the beach with our toes in the powdery sand. The staff was extremely friendly--always greeting us with "Hola, como estas?" The hotel is in a perfect location. It's within walking distance to the Cozumel ferry, a block off the main strip and right on the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
