My fiancee and I stayed in an all inclusive resort on Cozumel in december of 2012. While taking a scooter ride on the east side, we saw this hotel and simply had to stop and check it out. Accomodations are clean, but sparse. No phones, tv's (who needs a tv?) and electricity is limited, but more than enough to charge electronic gadgets. My fiancee told me I was nuts as I paid $100 for one night, even though we had a room back at our resort. We went back to our resort, packed some things, rented a car and then stopped at the Mega mart in San Miguel to buy a foam cooler, ice, soda, alcohol and some food. At that time, there was no dinner options at the hotel.
We simply had a fabulous stay. The ocean breeze coming through the patio doors was amazing as we ate our dinner, had a few drinks. The stars at night were simply breathtaking and then being sung to sleep by the waves crashing outside our room. Then we woke to an amazing sunrise!
Keep in mind there are only 14 rooms, and this is the only property of any kind for any distance on the east side so there is no crowds, no noise other than the surf crashing on the rocks. The beach is huge, only downside to the beach is the trash that washes ashore.
The staff was very friendly, breakfast was good, freshly made for us not a buffet, and plenty of hot water for showers.
We simply loved the adventure.
