Hi everyone - Our family is trying to book a trip to Cozumel in December and half the family scubas, the other half shops, sits by the pool walks along the beach and occasionally snorkles. I am having a difficult time selecting a hotel. From what I'm reading in the ads and forum, some hotels are advertised as beachfront but they are actually across the street from the beach. In addition, even though they say beachfront, I get the impression from the reviews that the beaches are rocky and/or unswimmable or unstrollable?
Can any one recommend a hotel or an area of cozumel where the beaches are fairly sandy, where there is a large swimming pool (with bar service), is close to a scuba shop and town? We like to walk to town or just taxi a short distance to shop/explore. We're interested in more of an upscale environment since we only get away every few years. Thanks for any help you can provide. Pat
