Beachfront elegance, close to downtown San Miguel
The all-inclusive El Cozumeleno Beach Front Resort offers excellent snorkeling, fine dining and an elegant location: across the street from Cozumel Country Club and its award-winning PGA-approved golf course. Families play together on the mini-golf course or in the kid's activity center and separate pool. There may not be a reason to leave the property, but if one chooses, downtown San Miguel is just a short taxi ride away.
Highlights
  • Three pools, waterfalls and a beachfront with excellent snorkeling
  • Kid?s activity center and mini-golf course allows families to play together
  • Fine dining and all-day room service available
  • Donatello's Disco & Karaoke bar for adult-only late-night fun
  • Across the street from Cozumel Country Club
Rooms
Each of the El Cozumeleno Beach Front Resort’s 252 sun-drenched rooms comes with views of the ocean or a patio at the garden level.  The adults-only deluxe rooms have an extra-large wraparound balcony and come furnished with a loveseat, wing chair and two-chair dining set, all of which allow for cozy in-room entertaining.
Dining
Reservations are required at La Veranda, which has a la carte fine dining -- and a dress code. El Cocal Restaurant serves buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner with stunning views of the Caribbean. A poolside snack bar lets El Cozumeleno Beach Front Resort guests graze all day and a lobby bar has top-shelf drinks and dominoes for adult play.
Recreation
A kid's activity center and mini-golf course provides hours of fun for families vacationing together. Get revved up on the tennis courts, then completely unplug at the hammock stations. A fitness center and beachfront aerobics classes provide ample opportunities to elevate one's heart rate -- as do the underwater views one sees while snorkeling. A dive shop helps certified divers get up close to the coral reefs on Cozumel and scuba classes are available for beginners.

Excellent place for snorkeling

We chose this hotel because it advertised snorkeling right off shore. Because of a walled harbor in front of hotel it was a protected area full of fish. Other hotels were not protected and had lots of waves. The hotel is more basic than others but the staff was outstanding. We would return!

We have been going to this resort for 11 years and its time for some updating! Rooms need painted, rusty mirrors need replaced, vanities and sinks need replaced and water pressure would be nice. We only had a trickle in our shower and my daughters rooms. Also, the floors should be steamed cleaned after each guest. And the water smells like sewer. The food isn't good either but the presentation is wonderful and the staff is wonderful and they do try very hard to please. The location is great for town and the airport. There are 14 of us that go yearly and we are now looking for a more updated hotel.

El Cozumeleno Resort is the BEST!

El Cozumeleno exceeded all expectations. Room view of ocean was perfect. Snorkeling was fantastic. The staff at the resort is outstanding - always a smile and friendly greeting, and always willing to help. Hotel room and all facilities are VERY clean. Wonderful experience. Would definitely go back!

Good location, mediocre everything else

Hotel is close to downtown Cozumel. The beach was not too rocky and great for snorkeling. The pools were extremely cold and hot tubs were not very hot, which was a bit of a letdown. Getting a reservation at the lone sit down restaurant at a decent time requires you to line up at 7am in the lobby. The food buffet was very hit or miss. The beds and pillows were rock hard. We saw 2 cockroaches in the hallway our last day and heard other guests complaining about ants in their room while checking out. Definitely skip.

4th visit to El Coz and can't wait to go back

What keeps us coming back to El Coz is the ocean front rooms, all with balconies. The size of the hotel is great, The resort is very clean and the staff work incredibly hard at meeting your needs. The food is good, you can always find something you will like. There is snorkling right at the resort and a nice beach for walking. Keep in mind this is an older hotel but for the price it is a great deal.

Loved Our 2nd Visit Too!

Love the staff--friendly and helpful. Everything is spotlessly clean. Food is good. Location is great. Beach, pools and activities are fun. Just as great as the first time we visited in 2010.

Ironman Triathlon Cozumel

The service was excellent. The upgrade to deluxe rooms was worth it in the amount of water we drank alone! The rooms were enormous and they kept our fridge well stocked. The breakfasts were a delight. They even made egg white omelettes for us. Fresh fruit and lots of it. Lunch was good. Dinner great as we always ate at the La Veranda restaurant (you make reservations for it) every night. As an all-inclusive in Mexico, we all (6 of us) felt it was an incredible deal. Alcohol is included, just remember to order a double and you will be all set. The price was right! Oh, do bring your own shampoo and conditioner as they missed the mark on that one, but no big deal.

Tropical Getaway

This is the 4th time we have stayed at El Cozumeleno and were not dissapointed. Our room was on the 9th floor overlooking the ocean and it was not only spacious but fabulous. I just wish the beds were softer. :-) The entire staff is wonderful. The hotel is clean and modern. Because we stayed during the offseason, we had a chance to order all our meals off the menu which was nice. Didn't have to get dressed up. We took some family members who had never been there and they loved it. We are all going back next summer. We did some diving, both shore and boat. Can't wait to go back.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are going to stay any amount of time, rent a car. It is much nicer than having to pay a taxi every time you want to go somewhere or do something.
