This was our first trip to Cozumel. The island is an amazing part of God's creation! We did not travel anywhere because our hotel was an all-inclusive resort (ENDLESS food and drinks and entertainment are FREE#. The beach front is very small; yet, it is lovely with the soft, white sand and the tropical fish. Someone needs to get up early #by 5:30 am# to put towels/books by the chairs to "reserve" them. The main pool is huge and fun for all of the water activities. Try to swim under the waterfall to refresh yourself from the hot sun! The two swim-up bars by the beach are small but cozy for chatting or just jumping in to take a dip to refresh yourself. Be sure to have Oscar serve you his Mango Daquiri/Dirty Monkey; they is delicious! The buffet restaurant has ENDLESS food of all types for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We were NEVER disappointed. Compliments to Chef Alfred for an AMAZING job well done! The two speciality restaurants #Mexicano and Itialano# were PERFECT for a small, quiet setting to get away from the large buffet environment. The host #Juan# and hostess #Ruth# are VERY PROFESSIONAL! Make your reservations early #12:00 noon# to reserve your table. The free activities are abundant. Look at the board in the morning to decide what you wish to do that day. FREE scuba diving, water aerobics, yoga/stretching #Karla was the instructor who made me feel good about myself right in front of all the people on the deck), and snorkeling are so much fun! Night time entertainment in the ampitheater is a BLAST! The staff is a riot! We really enjoyed Karoke Night in the Sports Bar; it is TONS OF FUN! Everyone sings along, so there is no need to be embarrassed/shy. One of the resort workers, Gustavo, has SO MUCH ENERGY. He makes you feel comfortable when joining activities. Ask Allehandro to set up a taxi ride around the island for a quick trip. We missed our opportunity, but we will do it next time. We will be back for a return tip to Park Royale.
