is the ocean view blocked by cruise ships everywhere on Coz?

When we visited Cozumel some years ago, we enjoyed everything except the fact that you couldn't see the ocean from our ocean view room. The view was completely blocked from 6 am to 6 pm by cruise ships. Where can you stay if you want to actually see the ocean? We're looking for a quiet, moderate place. European plan. We are not divers, but snorkeling is fun.

Which hotel were you staying in? No cruise ships blocking the view on the south end. You only see them tooling out again in the distance.

In addition to Joe's list, there are condos on the north side that may work for you as well.

depending on where you stay sometimes you find the overgrown palm trees can be more of an obstruction, and obviously the higher up you are the better view you will have.

Hotel B has a beautiful ocean view. Breakfast is included. Snorkeling right out front was very good. My review from our recent stay should be posted in a day or two.

There are actually very few places that are blocked by cruise ships. You were just unlucky in your choice.

I was thinking the same, Queeneee. Actually it is more difficult to find a hotel with the ocean view blocked by cruise ships.
