... to locate someone to fix my camera. Basically, we learned that there is one guy on the island, named Armando, who can do it, but nobody knows where he is working at this time. We found a purported email address for him and are waiting to see if he responds. In the meantime I'm relegated to whatever my Hero2 can get me.
We had dinner at las Palmeras and are watching the traditional Mexican show "Mythbusters."
... was more of a challenge than I thought. First of all, there are no direct flights from LAX, and there aren't even any reasonably scheduled departure flights either. First since I was visiting my father in Florida, I had fly from Orlando back home to LAX to pick up my scuba gear. I had a 3 hour layover which was just enough time for my friend with my gear to pick me up, grab a bite to eat, and and get right back to ...
... anything like that. I know that it's important to preserve these important archeological records and full marks to the Mexican government for taking such good care of them. It's still a bit disappointing nonetheless that you can't interact with the structures in any way. Fat iguanas roam throughout the site and look quite comfortable with all of the people around. The ruins are entwined with vegetation including some lovely ...
The prices were - yep guessed it - pretty amazing and when you walked into a grocery store, oh my the stores were massive, like the size of a Costco here and everything was so inexpensive. put it this way - a 2L of po was less than a dollar...that is right. and a lot of things were like that.
We were tempted to purchase food in the grocery store and make a picnic of it but the restaurants were also inexpensive so we ventured on our own ...

The highlights of our trip so far would include;

- Sea plane trip in Vancouver
- The Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque
- The diversity of the National ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sabor Cozumel Resort and Spa
My husband and I just returned from a short stay in the Sabor section of they Wyndham Cozumel. Everything was gorgeous. We were both extremely impressed with just about everything this resort had to offer. The Sabor area includes it's own concierge service, a very good restaurant (Mosaique), an open-air lounge, and pools with a fully stocked swim-up bar. The room was beautiful and clean, the grounds and pools were meticulously maintained, the food was great and always easy to obtain. The staff was extremely friendly and always helpful. The (included) mini-bar was stocked with water, cokes, sprites, and Sol. The balconies all had hammocks, and the bottom floor rooms step out into their own pools. The bed was quite comfortable, which was a big deal for us because the last time we visited Cozumel (at the Fiesta Americana) the bed was so hard that I had a difficult time sleeping.
Upon our arrival at this hotel for our honeymoon, we were taken to our room. The room was not clean, the bathroom was dirty (including garbage) the sheets had food on them. When we called the service desk, they did send someone up and cleaned up the room. Later that day we did upgrade to the Sabre section (the adult only section) due to the large number of children in the area. I love children and all, but not for our honeymoon! =) The upgraded section was much nicer, and the restaurants that one had access to were much better as well. Throughout our stay there, we did smell sewage quite often in walking through the courtards and also coming through the drains in the bathroom. One day the phone did not work, another day the cable didn't work, and on two occasions we did not have ANY water for two 1/2 days. The first time we ignored it, but the second time it was our last night and we were planning a special dinner. My husband was told to take a shower in the lobby bathroom. When we voiced these concerns, it was definitely an 'Oh well' attitude. I would highly recommend finding a more reputable hotel that is more accommodating than 'Oh well.'
Waren letzten Februar im Reef Club und hatten eine wundervolle Zeit. Die Zimmer waren klasse und das Essen war hervorragend. Der Strand hat etwas Sand verloren, ist aber immer noch wunderschön. Die Pools waren warm, und der Service war in allen Bereichen überdurchschnittlich gut. Gerade ist mir aufgefallen, dass ein Inhaberwechsel stattgefunden hat, und ich frage mich, warum es in letzter Zeit keine Bewertungen über das Hotel mehr gegeben hat. Hat jemand im Wyndham übernachtet?
We were at the Reef Club last February and had a wonderful time. The rooms were great and the food was awsome. The beach has lost some sand but it is still wonderful. The pools were warm and all of the service was above average. Now I see that they have changed owners and I am wondering why there have not been any posts about the place. Has any one been staying at the Wyndham? pb
Le Wyndham Cozumel
Nous avons passé un fantastique séjour au Reef Club en février dernier. Les chambres étaient superbes et le restaurant exceptionnel. La plage a perdu un peu de son sable, mais elle reste fantastique. Les piscines étaient chaudes et l'ensemble du service était excellent. Depuis mon séjour, j'ai appris qu'il y avait eu un changement de propriétaires et je me demande pourquoi, ces derniers temps, il n'y a pas eu de critiques sur cet hôtel. Est-ce que quelqu'un est descendu au Wyndham ?
Wir waren im Reef Club in Cozumel und hatten eine fantastische Zeit! Das Essen ist hervorragend! Man wird wie Könige behandelt. Die Angestellten gehören schon fast zu unserer Familie. Würde Ihnen zu einem Upgrade im Erwachsenenbereich der Anlage raten, dem "Sabor". Es ist wirklich etwas Besonderes. Vom hinteren Ausgang des Zimmers kommt man gleich in einen Poolbereich, von wo man ins Wasser geht und dann über die Wasserrutsche in den Hauptpool rutscht, der eine Swim-up-Bar hat. Außerdem ist eines der Restaurants nur für Sabor-Gäste. Falls Sie doch mit Kindern herkommen, gibt es jede Menge Aktivitäten für sie. Die Menschen in Cozumel sind freundlich und herzlich. Würde Ihnen unbedingt empfehlen, einen Wagen zu mieten. Hier zu fahren, ist ganz leicht, und man kann in seinem eigenen Tempo die Insel abfahren. Die andere Seite der Insel ist wunderschön. Dort gibt es keine Hotels, und es ist viel ruhiger. Die Wellen sind wunderschön... und hoch! Vergessen Sie Ihr Boogie-Board nicht! Die Restaurants im Ort sind preiswert und bieten viele verschiedene gute Speisen. Wir hatten tolle Mahlzeiten im Senior Frogs und Jimmy Buffets. Die sollten Sie unbedingt mal ausprobieren! Wir kommen zurück... und zwar noch viele Male. Planen schon unseren Urlaub für Oktober und für Februar. Viel Spaß!
We stayed at the Reef Club in Cozmel and had a FANTASTIC time. The food is EXCELLENT. You are treated like royalty. The staff are like a part of our family. I would suggest that you upgrade to the adult section of the grounds called the Sabor. It really makes a difference. You have a pool area outside of your back door which you can get into then slide down the waterslide to the main pool with a swim up bar. Plus one of the resturants are for Sabor guests only. If you do take children, there are alot of fun activities for them. The people of Cozumel are friendly and are welcoming. I would highly suggest that you rent a car. Driving is easy and you can drive all around the Island at your own pace. The other side of the Island is very beautiful. There are no hotels there and it is more secluded. The waves are beautiful...and big. Be sure and bring your boogie board! The local resturants are cheap and have lotsa good food. We had a blast at Senior Frogs and Jimmy Buffets. Go there! We will go back again...several times. We are already planing on going in October and in Feb. Have fun
My wife, brother-in-law, and I recently stayed in the Sabor section of the newly branded Wyndham Cozumel Resort & Spa and enjoyed our stay despite a few shortcomings. The room looks very nice, with comfortable beds, decent air conditioner (although one day it decided to pour water onto the floor, which was quickly repaired), 40" Sony LCD, DVD player, electronic safe, big closet with built-in storage bins, a huge shower with rain shower head, all just two steps out your sliding glass door into the pool! Although the shower tended to leave the entire bathroom floor wet, and proximity to the pool left the marble floor in the room frequently wet, towels were abundant so we just placed them everywhere. One thing we did not really understand is the frosted-glass window between the room and the shower. We had two double beds in the room, which I assume is for 4 adults or 2 adults that are not partners, but in the end it ended up being part of many jokes. Our refrigerator was stocked with Sol, Coke, Coca-light, Sprite, and water every day. Wi Fi worked for the first two days, then nothing, although you could use their notebook in the concierge office. Their turn down service was a waste of time; all they did was flip a little corner of the bedding down. It would have been nice if they had replaced our wet towels as other places do during turn down.
