So if you are on a budget or price is no matter (lucky you!), you should find some Cozumel lodging that is right for you.

If you have read our page on scuba diving in Cozumel, you know that we love Cozumel. It is one of our favorite dive destinations.

And it also makes for a very nice vacation even if you don't dive or have people with you that don't dive.

You can read our trip report from our Cozumel scuba diving vacation here.

Cozumel Hotels We Stayed In


The first time we went to Cozumel, we stayed at the Fiesta Americana Cozumel Dive Resort.

We had friends that stayed there and they recommended it to us. We liked the resort and the dive operation was good.

Since this hotel in Cozumel is located somewhat out of town, the boat rides were alot shorter to the dive sites than some of the Cozumel hotels closer to town (of course, the taxi ride into town was longer and more expensive).

The man-made beach is across the road but it is no big deal - to me anyway. It is not a major road and there is little traffic.

My sister stayed there a few years after us and she also had good things to say about the Fiesta Americana.

The next time we went, we stayed in town at the Plaza Las Glorias. This has since changed hands, been renovated and is now the Cozumel Palace, I believe.

I liked staying in town though and it was an easy walk to everything. The drawback, of course, were the boat rides. It took quite awhile and the boats we were on were slow, slow, slow!

If you to opt to get a hotel in Cozumel in town, ask how long it will take to get to the dive site. You definitely want a faster boat then we had.

Our next stay was at the Hotel Cozumeleno Beach Resort.

This is one of several Cozumel all inclusive resorts. We stayed here since we were with a large group and it makes life alot easier if you don't have to worry about who is buying the next drink!

We had a nice time here but don't expect 5 star luxury (you do get what you pay for).

The drawback if you are diving is the distance from the dive sites. We ended up taking a van to the boat so we wouldn't spend all day on the dive boat. If I were doing a dedicated dive trip, I would probably pick a hotel closer to the sites.

On our most recent trip to Coz, we stayed at the Occidental Grand Hotel in Cozumel.

We ended up staying at this hotel Cozumel since my sister had a good deal. It is another all inclusive resort. I would say it is nicer and more higher end than the El Cozumeleno.

It is also one of the smaller all inclusives and doesn't have that crowded, activity pushing feel that you can find at some all inclusive resorts.

And the best part was its' proximity to the dive sites. You would literally get on the boat and you were there in a few minutes for some of the sites.

Doesn't get much better than that.

So that's our experience with Cozumel resorts. If none of these appeal to you, you have many other options.

But how do you know you are getting the best deal out there?
