On the north end of the Mexican island of Cozumel, this Melia property caters to both families and couples, and especially caters to golf and scuba diving enthusiasts. There’s an impressive selection of other water sports, too. The spa isn’t much, the fitness center is only mediocre, and cuisine variety is unimpressive for an all-inclusive; but the property offers one of the very best (and largest) beachfronts on the entire island, two swimming pools (one is for adults only and has a swim-up bar), nice rooms (they’re a little dated, but certainly high quality for the price), a kids club with a unique Power Wheels-style mini-highway, a separate club for teens with XBox and PlayStation, a thatched palapa bar directly on the beach, decent restaurants for an all-inclusive (including La Iguana, which has a nice open-air atmosphere with great ocean views), great overall service, and a mostly relaxed atmosphere. With a +4 TripValue, the resort is one of Cozumel’s best bargains. Some suites have kitchens, and the “With Golf” rooms include unlimited greens fees at the Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course next door, the Cozumel Country Club, which is the only course on the island. Other activities include bird watching tours at the golf course, top-notch scuba diving (the outstanding Palancar Reef, the second-largest reef in the world, is nearby), snorkeling, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, parasailing, sailing, windsurfing, beach volleyball (on a good court), and kayaking. Other activities for kids and teens include mini golf, archery games and target shooting with paintball guns, basketball, and baseball batting practice at the batting cage.
Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are offered to guests returning to the United States that stay a minimum of three nights. In the event of a positive test, affected guests can extend their stay up to 15 days at no extra charge.
