We just returned from another great trip to Cozumel -- superb diving, pleasant weather, and excellent service at La Ceiba. La Ceiba is a mid-sized resort hotel that's big enough for complete services yet not one of the huge impersonal resorts that have sprung up in the last few years on Cozumel. The hotel is very comfortable with large, air-conditioned rooms that all face the water and a full-service restaurant right on the water facing the spectacular sunsets. It's a couple of miles south of San Miguel, but the taxi fare into town is only $7US or so for two or three people. The hotel and grounds are spotless. The hotel is next to the cruise ship pier, which adds some interest to the skyline.
The real highlight of the hotel for us is the staff. Everyone from housekeepers and waiters to managers is dedicated to ensuring that the guests enjoy their stay. These are career employees that we see every year, and they are genuinely interested in their guests' well-being. Even grounds keepers and maintenance people always have a cheery greeting and they seem eager to answer questions or help the guest however they can. The general manager takes a personal interest in every detail and can be seen at all hours checking up on things or mingling with the guests.
We'll be back next year.
