This all-inclusive retreat is perfect for your next family escape on the scenic and tropical island of Cozumel.
When you stay at the Iberostar Cozumel, things can get a little wild. For starters, the resort’s location—a bit off the beaten path and surrounded by jungle—means lots of friendly animals (like peacocks, flamingos and iguanas) wander on and off the hotel grounds. And that only covers the creatures you’ll see on land. As is the case in many resorts outside Cozumel’s main tourist zone, the main attraction here is scuba diving—something the private beach here, complete with its own on-site dive center, is perfectly cut out for.
The resort also offers all-inclusive amenities, including access to the hotel’s three restaurants (one is a buffet while the other two offer à la carte steaks and upscale Mexican fare). Additionally, anyone traveling with young children will be happy to hear Iberostar offers a whole host of supervised activities at their kids’ club—a boon to parents who might want to slip away for a little while to enjoy resort amenities like the luxury spa or sauna (and each other’s company, of course). Plus, the huge variety of room options means you’ll feel comfortable no matter what your travel plans are; choose from a bungalow-style ocean-view room with a king bed, a family-style room or anything in between!
This acclaimed Iberostar resort in Cozumel is a perfect home base for all your beach getaway excursions. Situated on the southwestern coast, this serene luxury property sets guests apart from more touristy areas. That said, a visit to bustling downtown San Miguel—where ample shops, bars and restaurants, as well as regularly scheduled ferry service to Playa del Carmen, can be found—requires only a 20–30-minute drive north along the waterfront.
In fact, nothing on this small island is too far away. Of course, as long as you’re staying in the southwest, you’ll want to explore the area’s beaches—and Palancar Beach is one of Cozumel’s best. An unspoiled gem, Palancar is known for its beauty and offers ample resources for watersport activities like parasailing and kayaking.
