the grounds are nice very nice, pools clean, beach is clean the rooms are small but they work just fine. the food sucked, the hot food is cold and the cold food is room temp. they seem to be trying with what they have, i would gess the management needs to step it up with the kitchen budget. we did the dive experience, soooo, i thought the rooms were going to be upgraded, no, just a towel bar to hang a few things on. with the UDE you have access to a special room that has food and bev. nice touch. we did dive a few time with Prodive, the staff are really cool.
We had stayed there previously and returned based on the all-inclusive package, beautiful pools and beach, combined with adjacent scuba facilities. Cozumel has some of most beautiful reefs in the world and it also offers easy access to the mainland to explore Mayan ruins and the local "cenotes". Again, our family had a fantastic vacation. Meals for standard dining buffet style were always good, but not exceeding expectations. It was difficult to schedule dinner reservations at the three special restaurants they offer. In some areas cleanliness of the grounds could be improved. The only other negative aspect, was the bars do not open until 10:00 am - difficult to get a Christmas morning bloody mary.
Friendly staff Disorganized management. The restaurants have a very disorganized way to arrange reservations. The reservations are scheduled to a specific time and customers are guided to their tables 10 to 20 minutes later. The buffet is always full because the staff doesn't know how to manage the sitting of guests. There is always a long line at the host section. In addition, when going to the Italian restaurant we had to wait 40 minutes to get our food served on the table. This is unacceptable.
The staff was friendly and very attentive. The food was not as good as I had hoped for.
Beautiful property with fantastic amenities. Staff is friendly. Food at the restaurants was pretty good. We used Resort Credits to have a romantic private dinner on the and the chef's dinner, both were excellent. The dive op located on site was pretty good as well. Service in the rooms was inconsistent. We paid more for Concierge level. It was supposed to come with nightly petit fours, but we only received them on a few of the nights. The coffee maker in the room wasn't working the first morning. We managed to fix it, but then they didn't consistently restock the coffee everyday. So I ended up dressing and walking down to the lobby every morning to get coffee. I didn't like that children were allowed at the swim-up bar. Bars should really be adult-only. Also, we used Resort Credits for diving. They tell you to check in and then go to the desk about using your credits, but if you don't book the diving ahead of time, it gets all booked up
We first came here 20 years ago, now we come every year because it is quiet, professions services, wonderful beach, and great food right on the stie. There are 2 restaurants so we can take our pick. The beach and pool offer a great place to relax. It is a little pricey but we recommend this place to all of our friends.
Our experience at IP was wonderful. I can't say enough good things about the resort and staff. We were surprised that there weren't very many people there but it was like that everywhere in Cozumel. People don't need to worry about safety there...in Cozumel. It is very safe and friendly. My only complaint would be the cost of the adult beverages at the resort were a bit unreasonable. I'd recommend stopping at the grocery store on your way to the resort.
This was our second stay at the Presidente ! We had a wonderful family vacation with our young adult children and teens . They said it was the best vacation ever ! The staff is friendly and helpful ! The snorkeling in front of the hotel is amazing . Scuba Du dive shop on premises was great also ! All of our chidren did the Discover Dive course with them and loved it ! Their staff is extraordinary as well ! We can't wait to return !!!
I love this hotel! The beach (s) are beautiful, the resort never feels busy even though we travel at prime time season over spring break. My only comment is that it is so expensive to eat at this resort! We try to go off site for supper, but even so just breakfast and poolside lunches cost almost as much as our hotel room (for my family of four). The hotel is super clean, our king size bed was the best. The hotel is looking a little tired and is needing a few cosmetic updates in the near future. We love the pro dive shop on site Scuba Du; and thoroughly enjoyed becoming PADI certified with Sandra who is the best.
The staff was fantastic..helpful at every turn!!! The room was wonderful great view of the ocean..my room was upgraded at no extra charge..that was wonderful The resturants were great the food was better than I was expecting and the service was a little slow which was great for us since we like to take our time eating. Check in and out was the wonderful and everything was correct with the bill. The staff was so helpful even the smallest detail wasn`t a problem and if you needed room service it was on time and everything was hot or cold if ordered!!! Can`t wait to go back next year....thanks
This was our 3rd trip to the Presidente, the first since the major remodel. This remains our favorite hotel on Cozumel. Not the cheapest but certainly one of the best. Our only complaint remains the restaurant selection/variety. The food is expensive, but is very good. For our 12yo son, the choices get kind of limited after a few days. None the less, we will stay here again on future trips to Cozumel.
Our stay at this hotel was wonderful all week long. The staff was friendly, helpful and provided just the right amount of attention- it was there when you wanted it and was never imposing. The beach was clean, snorkeling right there, and the sunshine was spectacular. The spa was magnificent- again with a terrific staff. An added bonus- a wonderful tennis pro to provide a workout on the courts.
Intercontinental- Presidente is a nice fading upscale hotel - after check-in we were IMMEDIATELY directed to a desk to sign up for sales pitch to their vacation club in exchange for breakfast and a 24 hour car rental. The ''club'' gives you a room triple the size and double the ammenities (two sinks, bathtub, sofas & chairs) of non-club members who pay triple the price for a VERY average room. We didn't know that the free breakfast included the company of the salesman. The ''club'' category room is very nice, but was not available for us as non-club members even though there were several available. The room we paid quite handsomely for was not adequate for three people. Staff is very friendly, english comprehension is marginal. Food is delicious. Plastic bar glasses observed simply being rinsed off and reused. Beach lovely. My son & husband obtained their scuba certification right on site. Seems to be a fun family place with lots of little children. Older children kept us up several ni...
It was so wonderful it would be really hard to stay anywhere else.
From the welcome we received when we arrived to the hospitality each day we were impressed! We felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. They even had books by each pool to read. The food was delicious, the view was even better!! We had always stayed at an all-inclusive resort, so this was a change for us. We expected to spend a fortune on food and drinks, but were pleasantly suprised that we got what we paid for. The most relaxing resort we have ever been to,..and we travel a lot. The only thing we missed at this resort was entertainment in the evening, it was DEAD!
This was our 3rd stay at the Presidente and it never disappoints! The hotel staff is always smiling and courteous, the concierge did a great job of recommending restaurants. The grounds are beautifully manicured and the beaches are very clean and very safe for the kids. Our room had a beautiful view of the sea and the new furnishings are very nice! The bed was extremely comfortable and the bath was large. My wife took advantage of the spa and the the staff at Scuba Du was great as always! If you do not see something on the menu the service was quick to accomodate your needs. Looking forward to our next visit!
-Once you tip the staff, service quality is top notch -If you make friends with any of the servers, they will help you get special meals that aren't on any menus -Alcohol quality was good -If you're into all inclusives, this one is about as good as they come -Any activity you would want to do is riddled with upcharges, it felt a lot like Vegas in that way. -Anything you have to pay for is far more expensive than can be justified. Things like plastic flip-flops made in Mexico are priced in the $500+Mxn range. -You miss out on the authentic Mexican experience staying on the resort, but you waste a disproportionate amount of money by not eating and drinking your fill at the included restaurants.
It is a very nice resort. I loved the all inclusive meals and drinks. It was so nice being able to go out to the pool any time of day or night. It was so relaxing and they had some fun events planned but lots of downtime and quiet too. The room was peaceful, extremely clean and well maintained... and I loved my balcony with the hammock on it. The water slides and swim up bars were fun. Room service all day and all night was nice. On more than one night, the crowded bar had no DJ until after the kids resort next door was done. They had his equipment out on an empty beach playing music to no one while everyone was upstairs ready for fun... but we had to wait for him to finish playing music for the kids. The songs that eventually were played was pretty boring... Macarena, The Wobble, Cupid Shuffle... its like they had a playlist of favorite group dance songs from long ago on remix and no real good music. It was played at every event, each day, multiple locations. We asked for special requests songs a few times and were denied. The food was unlimited... but no one was ever really happy with the taste or portions. It was either really low quality with too much... or really good and only a couple bites.
Everyone is beyond nice Nothing
We really enjoyed Secrets. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, we loved Bordeaux & Oceana! Our room was very nice as well. We especially enjoyed the the snorkeling at the beach, laying by the pool in the morning and the beach on the afternoon. We stayed in the Preferred area and would do that again, the pool itself is is worth it! If we go back to Cozumel we will definitely stay at Secrets again. When checking in (which is supposed to be at 3:00 p.m.) we were told our room was not ready and had to wait until 4:30 p.m. We also were not given a tour of the hotel, which resulted in us not knowing much about our surroundings until the 2nd or 3rd day. There is a family resort that Secrets is associated with next door (Sunscape Sabor) & some nights there were loud children on the shared beach (not especially romantic for Honeymooners).
