After reading reviews I was very nervous about staying here but was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Check in was easy. The resort is older but well taken care of and the staff is amazing. We stayed in south building room 1317. The view was blocked by the dome of the indoor pool so I suggest getting a room a few levels up from that. The room was clean. The bed wasn’t that comfortable but it wasn’t horrible either. We are at the buffet for breakfast and it was very good. The omelette lady is amazing. The lunch and dinner at the buffet was just mediocre at best. I never went hungry but never found anything that was awesome either. The service around the smaller pool was hit and miss but it’s close to the indoor bar so not a big deal to go get your own drink. There is always the chair game but that is at every resort you go to. I enjoyed the location of the resort and the snorkeling right at the beach was good. The resort is a little ways from town so renting a car is a good idea. It saves in taxi costs. About 2 blocks from hotel is a wonderful restaraunt called lobster house. Best meal I have eaten on the island. In town I suggest Wet Wendy’s and LaMission. Both very good. Overall I had no complaints about my stay. I would definitely stay at this resort again.

Great sandy, clean beach and great location for snorkeling. Staff is always happy, helpful and ready to serve. I love how they are mindful of the environment and did without straws in drinks. Rooms were cleaned everyday before noon. Loved that they also did away with bedspreads. Those usually get tossed aside on the floor anyways. Simple and super clean sheets and blanket on beds. Food variety good. You get what you pay for. Priced right for everything you need in a vacation! If you expect 5 star everything, then go book a 5 star everything place and pay more. I'm not one for staying in the same place twice but this is our 4th time there. Can't find a better deal for what you get at the El Coz! Keep up the good work! Loved it!

This property has a wonderful layout. My husband and I were excited to see all the pools, but the pools were way to cold to get into, no one was using them. Food is ok at best, not much of a variety and very bland. Also, no food service after 10:00pm The hotel should also invest in a director of events. Not much happening and the hotel is a ghost town after 8:30pm. Rooms and hotel are very dated but clean. Staff is amazing and very humble! For the price I cant complain too much, but we spent more time outside of the hotel instead of in the hotel.

This was our 5th stay at the property and would quickly go back again! We have stayed at other all-inclusive resorts on Cozumel, but we love everything this one has to offer. The staff is very accommodating, the food is wonderful, and the amenities and things to do are great! It is away from the cruise ship hussle and bussle and has spectacular views. We enjoy going in the off-season because you get a more personal experience. While the buffets are nice and more prominent during their busy times, we enjoy being able to order from the menu during the quiet times (there's just something about a freshly made meal/plate!!). This was the first year we took our daughter (3.5 yrs old) and she had the best time. Between swimming in the pools and the ocean and the nightly activities, she always had something to do and LOVED it! Make sure to pack the bug spray (or buy some at the shop) -- the mosquitoes come out in full force around 6:30 PM!! And make sure to order a quesadilla before you leave -- nothing compares to their quesadillas!!!

This is one of the oldest resorts on the island we have been to this resort twice now and prefer the older side of the resort the rooms are bigger everyone there is amazing from the time you arrive till you leave we plan on returning again next year and many more times after that it may not have the most fancy of rooms but to be honest we don’t take vacations to lay around in our hotel room the snorkeling on site was really good we seen all different kinds of fish every day the golf course is right across the road and shopping in town is a short taxi ride this resort is not walking distance to town but it’s more peaceful at night can’t wait to go back
