So after reading some of the reviews I was worried about my upcoming girl trip to Cozumel. However, we had a very pleasant stay at this resort.
The beach and pool area was clean and well maintained as well as the decorative foliage and rental equipment. Everyday we asked for stale bread to feed the fish and were accommodated with plenty. It was such an awesome experience to be surrounded by beautiful fish right off the pier. Snorkeling equipment is available for free and is a great way to spend the afternoon.
We ate in the buffet for every meal and were pleased with the selection and quality. They also have a restaurant that you can make reservations for. We never ate in the restaurant because we hate to have to be somewhere at any certain time on vacation. We did hear that the food was good from other guests.
The employees were all friendly and did their best to accommodate our needs. One even carried my coffee for me every morning up to my room. The waiters and bartenders knew our names and remembered what we liked to drink. Be aware though that they have a strict no shot policy. Mixed drinks only! I was a little upset by this because I hate drinking all the sugar in mixed drinks. But after a few days they realized I was not an amateur and would not puke in the pool they were heavier handed with the alcohol.
Lastly, Cozumel is low key and is definitely not a good place to party. Dancing is only available downtown on the weekend. All other nights it is a ghost town. This resort is definitely family oriented with little to do after 10 pm. So if you are looking for a great family vacation within a budget this is a great option.
I did want to comment on the bed bug situation. I did come home with a few mysterious bites. I do not know if it was sand fleas or bed bugs but the truth is that even the nicest most expensive hotels can be plagued by bed bug infestation. I would not let it deter me.
Shout out to Jose, Mateo, and Josenia. Thanks for all you did to make our vacation fun. Oh and Lorenzo the coffee guy.....you are the best!!!
