Our stay at this resort was very nice!! We stayed for 5 nights in room 8313. I must say though, if you can afford it, book the presidential suite. Goodness, was it amazing. My aunt and uncle booked this suite so while they were scuba diving, we enjoyed ourselves there!! Room 8313 was upstairs - which I DO RECOMMEND. My aunt and uncle go to Cozumel about 3 times per year and they always say do not get a bottom floor room due to the sand fleas. We didn't have any problems in our room upstairs at all. I do recommend taking plenty of bug spray and sunscreen. Put both on even before you walk to breakfast in the am. If you don't, your stay will be miserable.
The food was surprisingly good. After 6 days, 5 nights though, we were ready for some good ol' American food. The Steakhouse was very good. The Mexican restaurant, eh. The buffets had a good variety of food! The resort has a beach bar, swim up bar, and multiple bars scattered throughout the place. Alfredo @ the beach bar makes amazing drinks and Gaspar at the swim up bar is great too! Fransico is head over the StarFriends shows and entertainment and we enjoyed the Ideal Couple show and the Movie Night show. The pier at the hotel is okay for snorkeling - you see lots of fish!!
Before you even come into Mexico, take plenty of cash... more so than you think (lots of small bills)!! The hotel has an ATM, but it does have a significant charge. This ATM also gives you U.S. currency while others in town gives you pesos.
RENT A CAR. Tour the island. Go to Coconuts to have lunch. Go to Money Bar for dinner and/or to snorkel. Renting a car is so much easier and cheaper.
