    “Hotel good for divers”

    We went in mid November, and despite some windy weather where the harbor was closed a couple of days was an overall success. The resort is at the end of the island away from town but perfect for divers since it's only a short boat ride to the diving. There is an on site dive shop and several other dive shops pick up on the pier. The rooms were larger than some of the other hotels we've stayed at and had a shower and a tub. There were plenty of outlets to use for charging cameras, phones, tablets, etc. The rooms were kept quite clean even if maid service seemed to be at different times on different days. There is a shop on site for forgotten essentials but it seemed to be priced pretty steeply even for a resort. Several times they were late opening or getting back from lunch. Maybe the posted hours are just a suggestion. The food was good with a decent amount of variety but not extensive The best buffet was lunch by the beach which seemed to have the best service and variety. The Mexican restaurant and the Italian was good but not excellent. The seafood restaurant was quite good. The continental breakfast buffet was more extensive than you would expect. Not just early risers but divers and triathletes were there every morning during our stay. The main buffet service seemed uneven. For example the bread was out first thing in the morning for toast but the butter did not show up until much later. And the service was the same - coffee might show up right away but you would have to wait til you asked two or three times to get someone to bring you milk for it. The grounds were clean and well maintained. The iguanas are entertaining and clearly in control. The adult pool area has it's own bar but could use more loungers. It was full every day. You don't need to get up at dawn, but if you dawdle, there are no loungers left by 8 or so. The "activity" pool music was overly loud - you could not hear your companions over it. Wifi was not included. I read on the website you could sign up for their loyalty program and get free wi-fi but that was not honored at the hotel - you only get it if you BOOK on their web site and sign up for the loyalty program. I felt that was deceptive. All in all a good value but good be a great one if there was a little more attention to the details

    “hotel occidental Cozumel”

    14 days at Hotel Occidental, Island of Cozumel Mexico. This is a very well designed hotel, set in tropical forest. Rooms spacious, three or four restaurants on site. The island is ideal for scuba diving as it surrounded by reefs and protected areas, Much of the island is a nature reserve. Weather is always hot, 30C daytime in November. Visitors from northern climes MUST wear a hat and apply factor 50. You can explore the island on organised tours or you can rent a bike or jeep. Anti mosquito spray essential anywhere outside the hotel. Safe swimming near the hotel which is on the sheltered west side of the island. Swimming from the east coast not advisable.Nearest airport is Cancun. You should book transfers to the ferry terminal at Playa Carmen with a reputable company. Taxi fare is about USD50 each way. One of the highlights of the trip was the amazing birdsong at dawn and at sunset-and watching the igunanas!

    “relaxing time,”

    Room was great, clean and up kept well, food was very good, hotel was a lot of fun, a little off the beaten path 20-25 minutes away from the central town, no wifi included for some reason without additional cost. beaches and views were superb. Taxi cost were a bit high to get back to town from here. $15-35 each way depending on time of day. The shows at night were very fun. The staff eager to please. all in all a great time to be had.

    “Great place to dive in Cozumel”

    Great place to dive in Cozumel. The staff in the dive shop and dive guides are professional and go out of their way. The resort is a fantastic value. Staff is exceptional and the food is better than most all-inclusive.

    “Getaway from winter Nov 30-Dec1”

    Beautiful resort, friendly staff, good food, comfortable room on 3rd floor of building #15. None of the rooms have waterfront view - the resort is not large so all amenities are close. We did not opt for Royal or time share accommodation, so at times felt like 2nd class guests as we could not have breakfast at the beach restaurant and couldn't access the outdoor hot tub in the royal suites and had to pay for internet, etc. We were bothered upon our arrival by timeshare reps who are rather persistent. The pools and beach are great and there were plenty of chairs, except at times around the adult only pool. There is a boardwalk to get to the beach through a mangrove area. Buffets offered variety and our favourite was the beach buffet for lunch. We enjoyed a snorkelling trip arranged at the resort with ALBERTOS and rented bikes through SOMBREROS - Roger was reliable and the bikes decent. We cycled to Punta Sur and into the park. A good experience overall and we would return.
