There are 2 Occidentals..the Grand and the Allegro.

All 3 resorts are within 3 km each other.

As for "best on the island"...star ratings are...give or take 1/2 star...Grand 5 star, Iberostar 4 star, Allegro 3 1/2 star.

Keep in mind these are Mexican stars.

Pick one...you'll have a great time.

Len has the ratings right. How do you intend your time if not sunning or just sitting around the resort. This will help with the advice suggestions.

Allegro Cozumel all the way! They have a outstanding childrens program and kids 12 and under stay and eat free! You can't beat that! (I am also partial to the Polynesian-style bungalows)

We just got back from the Iberostar Cozumel with our two teenagers ( 14 and 17). They loved it, lots of people there age and they have a teen club (ages 13 - 17) in the afternoon so they can all hook up. At the shows in the evening the Star Friends are there for dancing, they will even teach you. We are real Iberostar fans but this one is smaller everyone was friendly and laid back. You definitely try snorkeling or scuba diving together. Dressel is on site and arrange everything and they are the best, especially if it's your first time. We walked down to the Grand Cozumel and the Allegro as they are just down the beach, but didn't find them as nice. Iberostar Cozumel is so much more rustic, the jungle landscape is amazing.

We liked the Grand so much that it would hard to choose another for fear of disappointment.
