Iberostar Resort in Cozumel (Review)
The Iberostar (http://www.iberostar.com/) Cozumel is one of the many all-inclusive resorts to be found on the Mexican coast. This one, like the Allegro Cozumel, is a village-style resort where one-storey villas surround the pool and activities area. The thatched roofs and palm trees add to the exotic atmosphere. The hotel is located in the southwest corner of Cozumel, on a wide, attractive beach with white sands. This makes it a popular location for snorkelers and divers. Other activities are possible too, including sailing, kayaking and windsurfing as well as dry-land activities such as tennis and aerobics. As with other all-inclusive resorts, one disadvantage of the Iberostar Cozumel is that it isn't in a central location, so you will be a twenty-minute taxi ride away from the town centre. However, if you've come for the beach activities, the Iberostar is ideally placed, near plenty of good dive sites.
The Iberostar Cozumel's 300 rooms all have a terrace and hammock for lazing in the sun. They also have showers, toilets, telephones and a minibar, as well as the usual air-conditioning and satellite TV. As with most all-inclusive resorts, prices vary depending on the package and on when you go. If you go off-peak, you may be able to get a room for as little as $110 per person per night for a double room. However, in peak season these prices climb to around $180 per person per night. Prices include food and activities such as sailing and tennis, but not diving. However, it is also possible to get diving packages, including daily boat dives with the hotel's own dive operator. You will pay at least $100 more per person per night to have diving included in your package. There is a dive shop on site, which can be handy if you've forgotten some vital piece of kit.
