Iberostar Cozumel is a diver's and nature-lover's paradise set along a spectacular stretch of white sandy beach on Mexico's largest island. This relaxed and romantic resort embraces the area's lush vegetation in a secluded village of quaint bungalows and open-air dining. Pathways and gardens connect guests to the many pleasures of our all-inclusive enclave, while gentle breezes and shaded garden patios welcome you back after a day of diving our famed reefs. And don't be surprised if you glimpse the occasional iguana, parrot or turtle among your tropical surroundings. The area holds many other fascinating adventures as well, with nearby parks that celebrate native wildlife and ancient Mayan culture.
The entertainment staff at this place is seriously awesome, they do so much to make sure you have a good time. It is clear they are passionate and love their jobs. Harlet and Angelo teach awesome classes and are always a ton of fun. The diving is great and very convenient from the hotel. The stay would be perfect if they have more variety in their food choices, after five days the food started to get a little monotonous.
Last time visiting here in the Covid era.
Oct 23, 2021
This was our 12th visit here and the last until Covid is over. Wearing a mask in 87 degrees into a restaurant is ridiculous and frankly unhealthy. Bring paper masks you can change out. You will need to wear it while getting your food at the buffet and into all restaurants. We had the unfortunate timing to be at the resort the same time as 5 very large dive groups so it was busy. You can serve yourself to salad and soup but not hot foods. So prepare for long lines no rhyme or reason. Oriental restaurant now has a set menu. Zero choices. Mexican was good though. Beds are still hard, bring a 20 buck bed topper for a full bed, you'll thank me later. Water is no longer bottles in the room. You have 2 glass water bottles to fill at water stations throughout the resort. Plan ahead for nighttime teeth brushing because bugs still rule the night. Bring lots of suncreen and Deet Off. Gym is only open 7am to 3pm which are terrible hours for divers. No one at the front desk could explain why. We come here for diving, but after trying to compete with a hundred divers from 5 separate clubs during the same week, we won't be back for a few years. Epic fail on corporate Dressel Divers not really Iberostars problem. Other than the resort was really busy. Extra cleaning costs/tax at check out and another penalty at the airport for coming to "their" island. Got a cold, probably from my dirty mask, Benadryl 24 bucks at the gift shop. So at the end of 9 days, truly over this place for a while.
