    We had a small room, bad view from the balcony, the food is bland, and other guests would pull that **** of placing their towel over a lounge chair all day.

    Flew United out of EWR to CUN...flight was full and They stuck a stranger between the wife and I...we upgraded to economy plus in hopes that wouldn’t happen, but it did. Boarding was a mess too...the said they would board by individual rows but started off with rows 30-39 followed shortly after by all rows and seats? Total clusterF!

    immigration at CUN was a breeze...literally 20 minutes from plane to baggage.

    but, they got us here in one piece and hopefully uninflected! The bag drag was interesting, but I doubt I’d do it again if I have better options...Already dined with friends and am happily tequila buzzed...going to try out the Aldora pool now....no peeking :)

    On the peninsula, not the island, right. Chief's van guy operates on the mainland only.

    We used to stay at Casa Del Mar, but have switched to Hotel Cozumel. Casa Del Mar is very worn, and some years were worse than others. If you stay there, you MUST get the upgraded room. There is a significant difference in the rooms, including that standard rooms have no balcony.
    In the summer, they host a student program and so the hotel is filled with young students, I think upper high school age. They used to crowd the lobby, but this changed once the Internet was extended to the hotel rooms, and not just the lobby. I didn't mind the students, but a couple of the adults in our party did.
    The best feature is that there is some shade at the swim up bar. The bartenders are very good and personable. They have a lovely garden near the restaurant and pool. There are bottled water fountains on each floor of the hotel so water is always available.
    Since we stopped going there, a Latin beach club was built on the waterfront. It seems to be oriented to cruise ships, and is not included in the hotel price. I've read that the loud music interferes with enjoyment of the pool. The waterfront must be pretty small without that space.
    Their pier is very convenient, and great if your dive op picks you up there.
    The location is a bit far from town, and the main reason we switched. We spend less on cabs now.
    Ernesto's is across the street. We loved having breakfast at Ernesto's before diving, where we watched the businesses getting ready for their day, cruise ships pulling in and discharging passengers, Roberta's Scuba Shack divers arriving and getting ready, etc. Javier, the churro guy, used to stop at Ernesto's each morning and we would buy churros from him.
    When you stay there, you may have free use of Nachi Cocom. (I don't know if this has changed.) it is a very nice beach club to the south. Sometimes we had our dive boat drop us there after diving, and just took a cab back to the hotel after enjoying the beach and lunch for a couple of hours.
