One thing we noticed about this city are all the Volkswagen Beetles that are in such great shape - not rust at all. My Dad always owned these cars so it brought a smile to my face when I saw them.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiesta Americana Cozumel All Inclusive
Since most reviews (except for avoid like the plague) were generally positive, we decided to give it try. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We did not do the all inclusive as we wanted to try places in San Miguel. Given the all-inclusive rates we heard from others who were there, we should have gone for it and just had a few meals in town anyway. The buffet was generally very good and I am on a restricted diet. Still enough variety for me. They had a couple of theme nights that were quite nice.The Dive House was very good and they even gave me a full refund when my wife couldn't dive one morning due to a bit of an ear problem. I didn't expect to get refunded for that since the notice was very short when we told them. All of the Dive House staff, Dive Masters, and boat crews were very good and the diving was great! I found the rooms to be ok and would give it a 3 star rating. Given all of the 4-5 star ratings that others have said, I'm not sure if I am using the same scale. I consider 5 star to be quite elegant places and have stayed in a number of them around the world. 3 star is still a nice hotel and certainly not a problem to stay there. Many people stuck with only bottled water. We didn't have any problem using the water from the sink in the room or with ordering plain ice water at meals. All is not perfect anywhere and we found the following minor issues. The drawers in the dresser aren't on slides so they will lean out when you pull them out and have to jiggle them in and out. Second, the remote didn't work for the TV but it was probably batteries. Since we only watched TV once for about an hour, I forgot about it until we left and then wrote a note on the check-out survey. I'm sure it could have been quickly rectified if I had mentioned it during the stay. One thing that drove my wife nuts was that we got a call from the front desk (while napping after our morning dives) telling us that laundry was trying to deliver our clothes but we had the do not disturb sign up. I had just gotten up when the phone rang so it didn't bother me too much. My wife however was still sleeping and the phone woke her. She was ready to complain mightily about this at the time but by the next day it had become a funny story to share with others. If I were to go back, I would do all inclusive. I watched closely to see if there was a different treatment for those with or without the wrist bands and so no difference whatsoever. By the way....all inclusive folks should still consider giving occasional tips (EVEN if it says it is included). The wait staff aren't getting the tips you aren't giving. Good service deserves a bit extra regardless. Also, I've never heard of the bellman being included in all-inclusive tips anyway. You always should tip those folks in countries that have tipping as a standard practice.Other folks that I talked to who were on all inclusive during our stay also felt that there was no tiered service level and were happy with the place. I would definately recommend this place to others.
We love Fiesta Americana. We have stayed there 3 times now. (We have also tried other places in Cozumel). We felt like we received the best value at F.A. decent rooms, great location, etc. We have never taken advantage of the all inclusive. We love the ambiance of the local flavor in town. When in Rome....As for diving, we would HIGHLY recommend SEA URCHIN DIVING. The main dive master is Isidro. He is the best we have ever experienced. The boats are NOT cattle boats. Always great dives, great service, great company (Isidro is the best) and safety is never compromised given the intimate diving setting. Isidro makes our trips to Cozumel top notch. (He will actually pick you up at the F.A. dock. ) Our hearts belong to Cozumel when it comes to diving. We look forward to diving with Isidro, coupled with a nice stay at F.A. - we couldn't ask for more. Isidro is worth it. It is the best kept secret in Cozumel!!!
We stayed at the Fiesta Americana (Cozumel) January 29-Feb 5th, 2002 and loved every minute of it. We did not go all-inclusive; thank goodness. Only one morning were we offered a menu. Otherwise it was full buffet or continental buttet; neither was worth the money. We ate in town every night. Our room was on the 5th floor with a commanding view of the ocean (don't stay in the casitas; humid, close, and smelly area). Our room was spacious, the bath updated, and the housekeeping service very good. The staff was fantastic, friendly, and helpful. Even tho the hotel is getting old and has some dings and dents, it is well maintained. (Beware of the Fiesta Tour rep stationed there; believe only half of what he says!) We never had any trouble getting a lounge chair down by the beach. Only one night was the music (live band) loud, but all music seemed to stop shortly after 10:00. I believe the hotel has a 5 star rating; a tad high!! We were there on a package deal from our travel agent, so we were able to get great flight and hotel rates. Would be go there again? Yes
I read with interest the review that said avoid it like the plague. I think nothing could be further from the truth. If the room was bad, get another one. I was there in November 2002 with 11 other people. We had a great time. All the staff were extremely accommodating. As far as people knowing we were tourists by having to wear a band on my wrist due to the all inclusive, so what! I'm half a foot taller and 5 shades lighter than most Mexicans. I would't fool anyone. Besides, I didn't want too. The Cozumel natives that I met were all friendly, courteous and helpful.
Just got back from the Fiesta, and what a great time !! The hotel was very clean, the staff were all very helpful and friendly - and the food (yes, the food) was SUPERB !!! I have heard and read terrible reviews about this subject, but the hotel has a new cook and believe me, i had an AI and ate ALL my meals there for the whole trip. I must have gained 7 pounds (the deserts are fantastic as well). The dive boat that left from the dock in front of the hotel was very easy to get to, the diving excellent, and snorkeling was very fun as well. One very nice thing about the location for this hotel is that the 8 or more cruise ships that are docked at all of the piers are all NORTH of the hotel. When i look out my 5th floor balcony - i see nothing but OCEAN and the beautiful coastline. It's perfect ! I really like that Chankanaab is within walking distance from the hotel going South. I highly recommend spending most of the day there. Snorkeling there was a blast as well ......Plan to go back to the Fiesta next year. Miss it already.
My wife and I just returned from a trip to Cancun and Cozumel (Nov 3-10). We stayed at the Fiesta Americana, Cancun and then at the Fiesta Americana, Cozumel. We had great experiences at both places. We did not do the all inclusive plan because we wanted to experience some of the local restaurants in town. We did however, eat breakfast and dinner at the F. A. Cozumel and the food was at best okay. The service was great though. I would recommend staying at either place because the rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. The only thing we didn't like was the sales pitch about timeshares. We told them no in Cancun and then avoided them in Cozumel because I wasn't interested in buying anything.
I just returned from the Fiesta Americana and had a wonderful time. The staff was so friendly and attentive. The hotel was clean and our room overlooked the beautiful beach, and the best part is that it was inexpensive. You have to stay here you won't regret it.
My husband and I just returned from Cozumel Aug 20th 2002. We loved it, Cozumel has many great dive spots, we also really enjoyed staying at the Fiesta Americana, the staff were so fantastic, the hotel was very nice and the dive shop across the street was fantatic! I would recommend staying there and diving with Dive House. We were there 8 days and would go back in a minute. All of the Dive Masters were good except for one, his name was Eddie, we would not recommend diving with him! Try to get Francisco for a dive master if possible. The food at the hotel was just ok, except at night they do a buffet and its lousy. We got coupon books, 20 for 99 dollars, I would suggest doing that. We only ate breakfast there and went into town at night. Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend this place to anyone. The dives were a 10, the hotel a 7, the staff 10, and the food a 4.
I'd have to disagree with the reviewer from Ontario. My husband & I spent our honeymoon here in September of 2000, and had a great time! In fact, we're planning a return trip this fall.
On arrival, we had to wait in line for over an hour to check in. We specifically requested accommodation above the third floor and were forced to take a room on the main floor. As guests on their "all-inclusive plan", we were told that "absolutely everything including all drinks food and gratuities" were included in our prepaid rate. We were forced to wear flourescent pink wrist bands at all times during our stay which immediately identified us to everyone on the island as tourists staying at the Fiesta Americana (which made us feel very nervous).
