El Cantil during Carnival

We have been to Cozumel a few times during Carnival and we know how loud and long the partying can go on in town. This trip we are looking at El Cantil. How is the noise in the units when the party is going on across the street on the plaza?

We stayed at El Cantil during Carnival 3 years ago. There is a lot of activity going on across the street at the Palacio which included live music until 5 a.m. It is a good place to stay if you want a great vantage point to watch the parades, but the constant blaring music and noise during Carnival was an issue for us. Tried stuffing blankets and towels at the door, didn't help as the hallways are open and outdoors, so it is difficult to control the noise. Good earplugs may help somewhat. If you are the types that can sleep through anything, it may not be as bothersome for you.

We stayed at ElCantil during Cannival 2 years ago. The unit we rented was on the ground floor. It was great being so close to the action. We moved a table out front, set up our own bar and had sushi delivered . It was nice not having to hunt for a bathroom. The down side is that it is very noisy. The party goes on across the street until 2am. It was tough to sleep parade nights. It might be quieter on an upper floor. Even with all the noise, I would not hesitate to stay at ElCantil again during Carnival. It's beautiful and we enjoyed our stay.

I agree with the others. We stayed at el Cantil several times at Carnival but made sure we had enough to drink that the late noise didn't bother us LOL. When the music STOPPED is when we woke up - yes around 5:00 a.m. We took our balcony chairs out front and sat there (we were on the lower floor also - VERY convenient) and watched the parades - and being so close to the food vendor's was great as well!

I would not hesitate to stay again during Carnival.
