My husband and I are planning a trip to cozumel for the beginning of December we have never been to cozumel before except by cruise and that really isn't getting to spend anytime getting to know the area. And we are looking at cozumel palace as our resort. It looks very nice and I like the ideal of the all inclusive. Could anyone tell me about their experince with this resort. I was wanting to check to see how close it is to downtown and see what all is with in walking distance.

You will need to take a taxi or rental car to get to any snorkeling beach, however. There is a small but attractive man made beach in front of the hotel. Locals used to use it for lounging when the hotel was not an all inclusive back in the day.

All inclusive food is not going to be as good as what you can get at the large variety of local restaurants -- particularly if you stay in or somewhat close to town. And having your own kitchen in a vacation rental doesn't really pressure me, at any rate, to feel I have to cook a lot of elaborate meals necessarily. It is just nice for breakfast, lunch and snacks. I don't know about you but I get kind of sick of eating hotel/restaurant food after about 3 days.
I travel a lot these days although my home is on Cozumel. I have been doing vacation rentals and nothing BUT vacation rentals for 15 years now. The value compared to staying at a hotel is unbelievable. You get a huge amount of common area, a kitchen, often more than one bathroom. Just no comparison in my book. Except in the states, maid service isn't included as it is at all the best places available here on the island.

We are at the Palace right now - go back to Texas tomorrow. We will have been here 10 days.
My husbnd and I have been to many all-inclusives and I have to say this is the very BEST! I can't say enough about the service! Outstanding. And the food and drink quality is Great! (The only thing we are not crazy about is the wine - but you can go down to the Mega store and buy some there.)
We were surprised with the Points you receive when you get here - we received 2000 points which could be used for various outings or services in the resort. We opted for two romantic dinners with champagne, steak and lobster, etc. - both times very nice. Also, my husband had a massage and I had a hot stone massage and a relexation facial - Wonderful! And we still have almost 900 points to spend before we leave - will probably use those on photos made by their photographers....
Be sure to get a room facing the water - we have a jr jacuzzi suite and it is wonderful! Have had room service several times - breakfast, afternoon snack of smoked salmon and crackers and cheese, etc. (and the jacuzzi is huge!)
Your wish is their command - I asked the young man stocking our bar to leave us some wine and he did....he even went one time and brought back a bottle of chilled white wine in ice.
No problem getting chairs by the pool either. Can't say enough good about the place.
Great place to stay!
