What a great place!!! This was my first time to Cozumel and won't be my last!! I stayed for 8 days and had a great time. The hotel was perfect- great location, awesome staff, good food, great value. I would definitely stay here again! The snorkeling right off the dock (and from the Money Bar back to the hotel) was amazing. The staff was beyond nice and so accommodating. Ruben (capitán), who is in charge of the two restaurants was the best of the best. He was amazing to us during our entire stay. A great asset to FA! The rooms were very average but fine. Good views on 4th floor and up. Very good coffee shop that is open all day and has coffee drinks/pastries. The beach is small and fills up quickly. I'd recommend getting there early. Not too much to do at night but very relaxing. Bring bug spray and warmer clothes for night time. It gets chilly with the breeze. You can exchange money at the hotel but they did not have a great exchange rate. Beautiful sunsets! Heard the diving is great- will have to try that next time. Met a lot of very nice travelers. Most were repeats Cozumel FA guests.
There are a ton of things to do on the island. I would definitely recommend renting a car for at least the day and driving around to the other side of the island. Well worth the trip- the views there are amazing and huge waves. Much different than the other side.
