The sun in Cozumel hot but the ambiance at Alicia's B&B is very cool. I think there are four apartments here, we are taking three of them. Each has a queen bed, private bath, A/C, ceiling and floor fans. Since this is an island, the humidity is high and the apartments can stay warm at night. During the day there is a pleasant breeze that blows trough outdoor patios.
Alicia is like a guardian angel, unobtrusive but around when you need her. She has a lot of information about beaches, restaurants and activities around the island. Her Mayan cook makes a delicious breakfast every morning. It has been something different and hardy every morning but there is always fresh guacamole, cut fruit and homemade totopos. It goes without saying that everything is "casero". Every evening she has brought us a fresh fruit cocktail. After a long day in the sun this is greatly appreciated.
The B&B is a little up water from the commercial center of the town. If you are looking for something in the middle of the tourist action, you probably should not be staying in a B&B in the first place. The beds are made and the rooms cleaned every day. Everyone is super friendly. The first day we were here she helped us arrange for scooter rental and her assistant, Orlando, helped us with a car rental as well. Downtown is just a couple of minutes away in a taxi. Taxis can take you anywhere on the island. It is wise to get the price and directions up front. You will need to know Spanish to accomplish this.
This is a perfect place for families and couples. Alicia's is a Mexican B&B, it is not the Hilton with a pool and room service but I will return the next time I visit Cozumel and I would recommend it to anyone with a non-tourist "visitante" frame of mind. Your mileage may vary.
