What makes your hotel distinct from the other hotels?
Our family-friendly resort has the largest swimming pool in Cozumel and was recently recognized by “Check Safety-First” (Hotels that care about your health) as one of the three hotels in Cozumel that has proved its capability to prevent food borne illness.
What activities can you recommend while visiting your hotel?
On top of the flavor, the tradition and the exotic beauty that Cozumel’s island has to offer, one of the most popular activities is diving. Thousands of divers visit Cozumel and its fabled dive sites each year, many of them making the trip multiple times and for a good reason: Nestled in the protected lee of the island’s west coast are some of the world’s famous reef dives.
We proudly offer several packages tailored and designed especially for those adventure seekers. Also, Hotel Cozumel & Resort offers you its unique Gazebo by the sea and facilities as well as its experience in the very specific field of weddings, marriage vows exchange, honeymoons and romantic dinners by the sea. Allow the sun, sea and sand to be an accomplice of the most special moments in your lifetime.
How far is the hotel from tourist sites?
Our great location is among the many reasons for which our resort is the best option for families and divers. We are within walking distance from gorgeous downtown San Miguel, the shopping area, night entertainment and only minutes away, by boat, from all the island’s main reefs. These are just a few recommendations not to be missed:
The Museum of the Island of Cozumel, located in downtown San Miguel, showcases the island's history and natural environment; its origins, wildlife migration patterns, reefs, archeology, galleons and pirates. Four exhibit halls, dioramas, sculptures, charts, traveling exhibits and interactive demonstrations, complete with guides who speak English, Spanish and Maya, bring the museum to life.
Chankanaab Park is just south of the town of San Miguel, is located within Isla Cozumel's Reefs National Marine Park and features the only inland coral reef formation in the world. The park is home to the world renowned eco-system and natural aquarium, Chankanaab Lagoon, with more than 60 species of tropical fish, crustaceans and corals and the only botanical garden on the island, featuring the most diverse species of tropical plants.
Punta Sur Light House, Ecological park and nature reserve is a breathtaking environment of mangrove jungles, white sand beaches and reef formations at the south end of the island. The park extends over more than 247 acres of land harboring a varied wildlife, including crocodiles, which visitors can watch from a safe distance in a look-out tower, 220 species of birds, iguanas, and giant turtles, which come to shore between June and August to lay their eggs. Among the park's most interesting structures is an old lighthouse and navigation museum displaying the evolution of seamanship and navigation from the time of the Maya to modern times. Here, visitors can also learn about life in Cozumel during the first part of the 20th century through photos and other articles belonging to several generations of lighthouse keepers and their families. Near the lighthouse, El Caracol is a well-preserved ancient structure, used by the Mayas to signal the approach of a hurricane.
