Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa is a five-star beach hotel nestled on a picturesque Caribbean island surrounded by the gorgeous “Arrecifes de Cozumel” marine park, home to one of the planet’s most impressive coral reef systems.
Cozumel is an island in the Caribbean Sea, about 10 miles (16 km) off the eastern coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in southeastern Mexico. Because of its location, you can enjoy year-round sunshine and warmth. October to January and May to July tend to be more wet and muggy, while November to April are hot and dry. The hotel is around a 15-minute drive from the airport, which costs around $20 USD in a taxi.
Style & Character
Presidente InterContinental Cozumel Resort & Spa is situated in a beautiful beachfront setting. The gardens are green, peaceful, and well-manicured, offering a huge chess set and large firepits with plenty of seating. At night, these extensive grounds offer a fantastic setting for a stroll, with the lights reflecting off the sea and pool.
The resort sprays the grounds for mosquitos, and there’s a hawk to frighten away the birds, so pests are not reported to be a problem here.
The hotel offers 221 well-appointed guest rooms and suites. If your budget allows, splurge on a ground-floor beachfront room or suite. All suites overlook the mesmerizing Caribbean Sea and boast private terraces or balconies. Some of the suites offer plunge pools, and the beachfront location can’t be beaten.
Their brand new 735 ft² beautifully appointed suites are a brilliant choice and offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea.
