I went on a family vacation to Ixtapa, Mexico the summer after 8th grade. We stayed at the all-inclusive El Presidente resort hotel. It was a ton of fun from what I can remember. Got really sunburned. We went deep sea fishing one day which was really fun. We caught an 8 foot long sailfish.
... then make our own way into the crocodile infested lagoon (2000 of them) by any means necessary. This was my last night out before 3 weeks living on far too many medications, so I was pretty drunk to say the least, and of course the Aussies are such a laugh... so when I saw that they were somersaulting successfully into the lagoon I believed in myself. Amazing, no idea how I managed it, but click on the image to the left to ...
... our seats - the only ones left - are right next to a drum kit, and sure enough a band strikes up as we set off. Ahead of us the Disney cruise-liner is steaming towards the horizon, its red and blue livery making it look a bit like the QEII, while in the bay pirate ships offer sunset cruises, allowing passengers to pretend to be Henry Morgan or Jean Lafitte, both notorious brigands who used Cozumel as part of their smuggling empires. I'm suddenly so tired that ...

I finished my meal off with a Williams Pear dessert, which I believe is soaked in brandy and of course my husband had a dish of Warm Melting Cake. He will be happy to know that I found the recipe for this cake as he thought it was devine! Before we were done with dinner, music started playing and the waiters put on a little dance.

After a nice breakfast, we got ready to go catch our 10am appointment for a couples 90 minute hot stone massage. We quickly managed to debark from the ship and after a few pictures with the ship in the background, we gathered our courage to traverse the port shopping area that you had to go through to reach any destination in Cozumel.
We managed to make it through the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Gorgeous small beachfront resort that is possibly the best hotel ever! great location, large spacious beachfront, impeccable snorkling, two huge pools, one for adults only, nice waterfront restaurant, impeccable service, impeccable grounds, extremely well maintained, lush landscaping, large room, great amenities. Resort never felt overrun or overcrowded - very adult oriented. quite often felt as if we were the only ones staying there, as nothing was ever crowded or busy - probably due to the extremely high prices charged on everything from the rooms to the drinks. i guess this is what you get when pay super top dollar.....

Historical Traveler Reviews Presidente Inter-Continental Cozumel Resort & Spa
Great hotel. Very romantic. The wait staff will bring you drinks on the beach under the unbrellas. Happy hour, 2 for 1 Food was good and everyone was friendly.T his is a great place for couples. We would stay here again. The dive boats pick you up at their dock so you don't have to get a taxi. Short distance to dive sites. If you go into town, it does take a taxi or rental car. Too far to walk. Can get expensive if you go everyday.
My husband and I stayed here for our 5 year anniversary. Everything was great from the first time we were greeted at the taxi upon arrival. The on-site travel agent was very helpful in providing information and price options for our day excursions. If you want to just lay on the beach an relax, they will serve you drinks and food right to where you are sunbathing. The rooms are nice also. We decided to do the Romantic Dinner that is listed in the room service menu. They set up a lovely dinner right on the beach. It was a four course meal with candles and luminaries and our own personal wait staff and guitarist to sarinade us. It was one of the best nights of our lives. We didn't see any children on our visit, mostly couples. We definitely will be returning soon. They catered to our every need. The on-site restaurant was very good and you don't have to leave the resort for anything. You can snorkel right off of the private beach. This is a definite place to stay if you are visiting Cozumel.
We stayed at the Presidente the week of May 4, 2003. This was our second visit and just like last year, it was great. The hotel may be a little expensive, but I have no regrets...you get what you pay for. Free coffee brought to the room every morning, several clean-ups by the maid every day. Great pool, beach, shore diving and exercise room (with a view of the beach). We did a night dive right off the beach and saw octos, squid, you name it.The dive shop is Scuba Du and they were also great. I've heard that all of their divemasters are very good but I can only recommend Lucio as we have used him exclusively for 2 years. His attention to safety and ability to point out interesting creatures is awesome.If you want to save a few bucks, don't go here. If you want to make certain that the rest of the money you have invested on a vacation is not wasted, then spend a few more dollars, stay here, and never regret it.
Look no further. The El Pres is the place. Great everything, and yes, the price is a little high. No need for an all-inclusive in Coz. Just a few bucks for a taxi to town each evening for tons of great inexpensive restaurants. You'll eat like a king for about $15 US. Plus, the all-inclusive resorts were pretty dumpy. We rented a car & drove around the island, stopping at the all-inclusives to check out for a possible next time. NO COMPARISON to the El Pres. It is definitely worth it to request a reef room, located beachfront. Just walk out onto your patio & directly onto the beach. Free coffee & newspaper each morning if you call for a wake up call. Snorkeling tip: walk to the far south end of the property past the restaurant. Climb down the ladder & enter the water. Put on your gear & enjoy the ride. The current will gently float you north as you take in the incredible underwater sights. Then get out at the north ladder, and repeat. I must have spent 6 hours a day face down in the water.Try Dive With Martin if you scuba. Great prices, great rental gear, small fast boats with a canopy. Extremely safe & friendly divemasters.
Casual elegance in a relaxed pace
this is a greatlocation for the beauty of the beach and ocean. the property is always spotlessly clean. the staff is very friendly and helpful. the bar and open-air restaurant at the water is grewat for relaxed dining. the inside restaurant while very classy is almost too formal for the rest of thee expewrience. can't wait to return again next fall
We spent a week at this beautiful resort from Feb. 14-21, 2003. All staff were helpful, curteous and friendly. Nice beach with fantastic snorkeling right off shore. My husband dove several times with Scuba Du and enjoyed it. I took the resort SCUBA course and I am now hooked on diving. My instructor was very informative and patient. We ate lunch at the beach resturant several times. Although the prices were a bit high, the food was very good and so were the views of the beach and ocean. We will definitely return to this ressort. If you are vacationing here, we highly recommend you rent a car and see the east side of the island. We especially enjoyed a late lunch at the small beach front resturant, Chen Rio. Note they are not open for dinner. The fish platter for two was fantastic!
Presidente's a nice resort with helpful staff and great food. Room service is somewhat pricey, however.
This was our 1st family trip to Cozumel. We picked the El Presedente because it sounded the best in the reviews- we were not disappointed. The hotel, staff, beach, snorkeling, etc. could not have been better. To a person, the staff could not have been better. They made us feel like family. The food was well prepared and reasonably priced-room service is 20 minutes max.
Stayed at the hotel w/our 9 year old and had a wonderful experience. The staff was wonderful, the food is fantastic and the the grounds are gorgeous.
Its convenient to town (which is a problem w/the all inclusive hotels -- the cab fare can be very costly). The food in Cozumel is delicious and reasonably priced -- we like to go out to eat so the idea of being stuck in an all-inclusive w/institutional food did not appeal to us. When we did eat at the hotel -- we were really impressed -- the quality is outstanding.
We would definitely stay here the next time we go back to Cozumel.
