My husband and I just returned from a relaxing 13 day stay at El Coz. We stayed on the second floor with a gorgeous view of the pool, garden and ocean. The room was very spacious, but it could benefit from a dehumidifier as the bed, floor, bedding and our clothing was always slightly damp. I realize this is a humid climate and this could help with the moisture problem. We found the staff to be very attentive and friendly, especially Salvador, the head waiter at the La Verenda restaurant. (Hey Salvador!) Speaking of restaurants, the food was fine. There were some meals that were very good, and some that were just ok with many somewhere in the middle. Potatoes in any form and desserts could definitely use improvement. Desserts were beautifully presented but lacked any flavor.
The grounds, pools and beach were beautiful, and the very best thing is that you can snorkel right from the beach. They have two piers that make a large cove perfect for snorkeling, whatever your ability. There is no reef, but a number of rocks and nooks and crannies along the piers where the fish hang out. They have a lot of marine life and every day we saw at least one unique thing. This alone makes this resort a destination if you want to snorkel without taking an excursion. Bring your own snorkel gear so you can snorkel on your own schedule. Also if you plan to spend a lot of time under the palapas, the lounge chairs are worn out and uncomfortable. Based on previous reviewers suggestions, we brought our own air mattresses, partially inflated them, laid them on the chair, covered them with the large beach towels the hotel provided and Voila`! Hours of comfortable lounging was ours.
There were many more positives than negatives about our stay at The El Cozumeleno. We would definitely return.
