We are planning a dive trip to Cozumel and are looking for the "best" place to stay on the Island.
Our research and exploring these forums have led us down to three choices. The Occidental Grand, Iberostar, and Presidente Intercontinental.
Obviously "best" is a relative term as each resort has its pluses and minuses and all three of these resorts appear to have great onsite diving facilities.
Price-wise all three of these choices are pretty much in the same price-range, but with the Presidente the pricetag does not include food and drink.
My previous experience with all-inclusive / all you can eat type places does not lend to the best quality of food and drink, which lends some concerns with the AI resorts.
Our personal preference is that we would rather pay extra for the opportunity to get exactly what we like vs getting served all the mixed drinks I can swallow but made with old crow whiskey.
In the end we are looking for personal opinions or experiences between these three choices and more specifically any experiences with the cost and quality of food and drinks at the Presidente.
Our thought this point is that we are leaning toward the Presidente as we figure if we only get two weeks off a year, we would rather overspend and be better safe than sorry.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
