The swanky, 175-room, Cozumel Palace All Inclusive lies near the center of San Miguel de Cozumel less than a mile from the ferry port. The stretch of beach is small here but the resort has a large pool area with wonderful open sea views.
Their food is a highlight, rooms are spacious and comfortable, service is legendary, water-based activities are numerous and overall Cozumel Palace offers a very enjoyable vacation.
The resort is family-friendly but doesn’t have too much specifically for kids – though they do have a small kid’s play area and pool – most guests are seemingly couples on romantic breaks.
Rooms & Suites:
Rooms are a step above most Riviera Maya all-inclusives. They are spacious (minimum 581 sq ft), bright and clean and all come with large spa baths in the bedrooms and some outside space – balcony, patio or terrace – with sea views.
Their top-of-the-range is the 829 sq ft Presidential Suite which has two bedrooms, a lounge area and a large outside terrace. Standards are high across the board though and their entry-level rooms aren’t that much less impressive.
Standard facilities include minibars and a drinks bar with four bottles of premium brand spirits, large cable TVs, coffeemakers and marble bathrooms with CHI or L’Occidental bath products, and 24-hour room service.

Food, Facilities & Things to Do:
Turquesa is the main restaurant and the venue for their breakfast buffet while also offering fresh waffles, pancakes and various egg dishes a la carte. It then turns into a classy Italian venue come evening time.
Other venues include Bugambilias Mexican Restaurant, Flamingos which does pizzas and other fast food plus an al fresco dinner buffet, Momo does pan Asian including sushi and Agra does classic Indian.
The food in all the above is generally very good.
The beach here is quite small but you have two large pools, one is infinity style and the other has a swim-up bar. Both have lovely open sea views, and there is a small kid’s section.
There is a small spa at Cozumel Palace and a fitness center with equally nice views. Activities include volleyball, snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming with dolphins, (off-site), dance classes and daily cultural excursions.
With it being more popular with upscale couples on romantic breaks there isn’t a lively nightlife but there is a nightly entertainment program that includes dance shows, live music and karaoke.
Cozumel Palace is about a mile from the ferry port on the west coast of the island and within walking distance of the center of San Miguel de Cozumel.
There are ferries by the hour from Playa del Carmen with the journey taking around 45 minutes.
