mother and daughter trip

Goog hotel but EVERYTHING WAS SO EXPENSIVE. We have to pay for room service (12 US/Day). Breakfast 35 US/Each, Hamburger 22 US... The hotel was nearly empty. No buffet for lunch. After 2 days, we rent a scooter and went downtown to eat. It was better. Beach was good, clean and confortable. No animation, no ambiance... I never come back in a non all inclusive resort.

First time in Mexico

The hotel was wonderful right when you walk in the door. The staff was there to take your luggage and gave you a complimentary cool wet towel and a bottled water. The staff also talked about the amenities in the room and how to get around the hotel. They have a great scuba staff on site for ample diving. There is a family pool and also a private adult only pool which is beautiful. There was a great amount of space for swimming and snorkeling in the ocean. A person could see all the cruiseships coming in and out of the ports which was really cool to see. The restaurants had great food with great service.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

In the restaurants at the hotel and also shops and restaurants down town, the currency is mostly in Pesos so it is a little easier to have Pesos on hand instead of American money.

Marvelous as usual

I love the El Presidente Cozumel. .Johnni the concierge does an excellent job in communication before traveling to Cozumel and is so helpful with knowledge of the island and local cultural events. This is not an all inclusive experience. ..it is private - safe - and personal. I look forward to returning to The El Presidente Cozumel in a few months~

Eat at the hotel. There are 3 restaurants. ..and it saves taxi fares or car rentals. But if you want to eat excellent inexpensive local food and not get sick...Johnni the concierge can send you to good places..I love eating local!!

Grea experience during the 70.3 Ironman

We stayed at the hotel for a few days during the 70.3 Ironman race and we had a great time! The beach is hard to top, stretching over 500 m with private land and direct access to a reef and crystal clear waters. A divers paradise... The hotel management really understood the priorities for the race with early breakfast (4 AM), shuttle, amenities and more... Something you don't find often in other hotels. The staff is really friendly, but you have to get used to the Yucatan's peninsula speed which is reaaally slow. My only disappointment for a hotel of this class. We had dinner at the Alfredo Di Roma Italian restaurant, which is supposed to be top notch, and although the food was ok, the service was very poor and slow.

We have been returning to the Intercontinental for many years and enjoyed a relaxing stay there with our family. The staff is superb -- couldn't be nicer! The grounds, room, and restaurants were amazing.

Great Place, but Pricey

My wife and I booked here thinking it an all-inclusive resort like many of those in Cozumel. It comes up under all-inclusive on some travel sites. I was a bit shocked to learn that it is NOT all-inclusive, and is in fact quite highly priced in all respects. I met another guy there during my trip who had made the same mistake. Besides spending about $800 more for our 4 days scuba trip than planned, all other aspects of this hotel were wonderful. I was in the cheapest room, which was huge and nicely done, even including a little private patio off the bathroom with outdoor shower. Had a really comfortable bed and the room had good darkening curtains and was quiet. Every room has a main patio with hammock. All staff were extremely nice and helpful, and the place was clean and well kept. Even though there is supposedly Wi-Fi throughout the property, we were hardly ever able to link to it. The food at every one of the restaurants and snack areas was quite good and nicely presented, with good sized portions, but at prices I didn't expect for Mexico --- $4 Coke, $15 salad, $18 hamburger, $10-$15 mixed drinks, $30 steak, $15 BLT sandwich, $30 all-you-can-eat breakfast food bar. Daily happy hour 5-7 pm at all bars did offer 2 for 1 drinks. The resident scuba outfit --- Scuba Du --- was outstanding. Friendly, helpful, careful, pretty reasonably priced ($80 for two-tank dive excursion). They only do small group dives of up to 6 per dive master. The dives we had were spectacular! Would I recommend this resort to others? Absolutely! It's really about as first rate a vacation as you can get on Cozumel. Just know that it ain't cheap though. Would I go here again? Not sure. I'm more likely to go to a real all-inclusive hotel for budget reasons.
