The colorful, hacienda-style buildings of Occidental Cozumel sit right behind an immaculate, palm-studded beach with plenty of room to spread out and soak up every ray of Caribbean sunshine. On-site are three pools, a hot tub, tennis courts, fitness center, spa and kid’s club. The upgrade to Royal Level at Occidental Cozumel brings a host of well-worth-it amenities including a private restaurant, free WiFi, beach towel service, a private pool, a private lounge for check-in and check-out, concierge service and nightly turn-down service. Accommodations range from deluxe rooms to Royal Level master suites and each is surrounded by lush jungle and a tropical mangrove forest.
Cozumel is one of the top diving destinations in the entire world, and Occidental Cozumel is close to the Palancar Reef—one of the five best scuba diving sites on the planet. Dive during the day and see brilliantly-colored reef fish and otherworldly-shaped coral. Take a night dive to see bioluminescent plankton, huge crabs, lobsters, eels and octopus. Other water sports at the resort include snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, water aerobics and water polo. For a delectable, second-to-none dining experience, try La Carreta restaurant or, hit La Posada—a more casual buffet—for delicious tacos and more. Other restaurants feature Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine as well as seafood. The private restaurant, for Royal Level guests only, prepares anything you want if you give them a little advance notice.
