My husband and I are travelling to Cancun for a wedding and staying at Dreams all inclu there. I know I will be bored after 3 days and we plan to come over to Cozumel by ferry on our own Feb 26 (leaving Coz by plane Mar 1). Now, we'd like a "budget" room since we do not plan to spend time in it except to sleep but something that would have a nice sitting area elsewhere on the property or close to authentic cafes or pubs that we could go to instead. We haven't decided what we are going to do but it will involve striking out on our own and exploring Cozumel (rental car will happen at some point). We'd still like to be about 10 to 15 minutes walking distance (or closer) to the main boardwalk.
So. We saw one quaint little place Hotel La Casona Real Cozumel. It gets mixed reviews on tripadvisor but really sounds like it depends on what room you get. Any ideas about that? We need to have accommodations that have more than just a double bed, we are both quite tall but don't mind calling or emailing any suggested hotels to find out if they have larger than simple double bed. The Flamingo sounds nice but, I don't know. Guess I'm looking for "quaint". Thanks for any help or ideas.
