Clear ocean views and a ladder’s climb away from diving on Cozumel
A statue of leaping, diving dolphins greet guests of the Coral Princess Hotel and Resort as they enter the bright lobby. This oceanfront resort is ideally situated in front of the beautiful San Juan Reef on the North side of Cozumel Island. The property is also a short cab ride away from the piers in downtown Cozumel leaving ocean views clear and putting great snorkeling at close reach: just a ladder’s climb off the hotel’s man-made beachfront to the waiting reef below. An equipped gym, spa, dive shop and free Wi-Fi round out the hotel’s amenities. The hotel also offers rich cuisine at the hotel restaurant, Buenaventura Terrasse as well as a delicious breakfast meal every morning. K8 Karaoke Bar hosts a daily hour of karaoke and happy hour chimes at the swim-up poolside bar daily. Other amenities include kids club and outdoor whirlpool.
Highlights
  • Unobstructed ocean views
  • Snorkel right from the hotel’s man-made beachfront; pro dive shop in-house
  • K8, the hotel bar, hosts karaoke parties daily
  • Gym and spa
  • Free Wi-Fi
Rooms
Bright white and ocean blue are popular colors on Cozumel, and at the Coral Princess Hotel and Resort, it is no different: sun-bleached sheets dress the beds and royal blue countertops provide a pop of color in the living area and bath. Pale blonde wood headboard and furniture lend a beach-front look. Terraces offer an airy spot to watch the sun set. Rooms come in one, two or three bedroom suites; rooms with three beds accommodate up to eight guests. Kids under 12 stay free in their parents’ room.
Recreation
A massive swimming pool is the only thing between guests and the waiting Caribbean. Recline under a tropical umbrella on the Coral Princess Hotel and Resort's man-made beachfront or climb down the waiting ladder to explore the coral reef for immediate snorkeling gratification. In-house amenities include an equipped gym with an ocean view, a spa which gives beachfront massages and pro dive shop. A travel agent is in-house to help plan excursions. K8 Karaoke Bar, has an hour of karaoke every day. Vacationers can also check out the view at the Palapa and pool bars or unwind in the whirlpool, spa and gym on site. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel means guests will always be connected.

Scuba Diving Vacation

The hotel was half full. The Jacuzzi and Pool Bar were closed. The price of the food was high. The view was great. The Scuba Diving Shop was very good. The rooms were nice. I think they sell memberships or timeshares. One of their salesmen really wanted me to sit through some sort of "Presentation", but I was too busy for that.

Good Value Getaway

My girlfriend and I visited the Coral Princess for 3 nights. The hotel has a nice location, away from all the crazy cruise ship crowds, yet still very close to downtown. THERE IS NO BEACH, just a man made area with sand and a ladder to access the rocky water. But that is what you will get in this price range. It is definitely a family hotel, since small children were always running around and there wasn't anyone near our ages (22-24). Our only disappointment was that the swim up bar and outside bar and the jacuzzi were all not open for the season. Not sure when the high season is, but this was a disappointment. There is amazing snorkeling right off of the front of the hotel. Be sure to rent a scooter!

Rent a scooter asap! You can rent them right from the hotel concierge. They are super cheap (30 USD / day) allowing you to save on taxi fares. Also you can drive around the entire island in a couple hours, allowing you to see much more than you would otherwise. Scoot Scoot!

Great Place!

I will definitely return to this hotel despite any negatives noted below. We had a three bedroom suite on the top floor (9th) that was absolutely ginormous, and it was oceanside with one of the best views ever. On the positive side, the hotel was clean, felt safe, location is awesome and the food (and drinks!) in the hotel's bars and restaurant were very good. On the downside, I was shocked that at check-in, you are charged an additional amount for "MAID SERVICE." Since there was no disclosure about this fee at the time of booking, it felt like a ripoff, despite the fact it was not a lot of money. Let's hope this is an isolated incident and not a new trend amongst hotels. The hotel staff was great and friendly, except some of the waiters were grumpy and downright insolent. Not a great plan for a hospitality business. Finally, the towel policy is so extreme it's laughable. They guard their towels - especially the pool towels - like they're gold! Heaven help you if you try to switch out a room towel for a pool towel. It isn't going to happen. You are constantly reminded that at checkout, you will be held accountable for either turning in X number of towels, or the same number of towel cards, or you will be charged $20 per (junky white) towel. I swear I was going to go downtown and buy them a dozen. As it was, for all of their strict towel control, we still ended up with 3 extras at the end of the trip. Obviously, the towel policy is not a dealbreaker, but the constant reminders were beyond annoying! On balance, you should consider this property. Just make SURE you request an ocean view and NOT the "jungle view," which overlooks the street.

Wait until evening to visit the downtown area. They usually have 3-6 cruise ships in town and it's a zoo when they're there. By 6:00 or so, they're gone and the stores and restaurants are thrilled to see you.

Fantastic getaway from the crowds

The hotel and its quite white-sand beach are a fantastic getaway from the crowds in big cities! We went in March and it was a great vacational experience since it was still not spring break for many schools. The blue sky, turquoise water, white sand, and friendly hotel staff made this small resort a getaway paradise!

Good Family Holiday

The view was fantastic, looking out the balcony doors you felt as if you were on a cruise ship, floating in the middle of the ocean. We booked the 2 bedroom suite and loved having a living room and kitchen; the additional space was great and as comfortable as home.

Nicely Renovated / Friendly Staff

The Coral Princess is a nice hotel/resort in the North end of the island so if you want to be closer to the diving and center of town, you'll need a car. The person I was with had 2 massages there and enjoyed both. You can also take a resort dive course at the on site dive shop. They have a little gym and babysitting; I didn't see many children there though and I was happy about that. The room was very clean and the furniture looked relatively new. I wish they had a small fridge and microwave in the room. The staff are very attentive and try to accommodate your needs.
