What do you get when you combine rich white-sand beach, fabulous location, perfect year-round weather, experienced and friendly hotel staff and employees, sports, activities, exploration, spectacular landscape, a sweeping seascape, drench it all with golden sun, and wrap it together in Caribbean charm?
A superb vacation package! Go ahead, open it up, and inside you'll find the Occidental Grand Cozumel Hotel and Resort!
Located 12 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula on Mexico's beautiful Cozumel Island, the Grand Cozumel Resort is perfectly nestled in groves of trees on the southwest portion of Cozumel Island. The clear blue waters of San Francisco Beach lap against an exquisite corridor of clean, white sand that borders the resort. The scenery is stunning, the sun is warm, and the entire setting is glorious.
The all-inclusive Grand Cozumel boasts a fine selection of restaurants, sports and recreation activities and equipment, nearby exploration and fishing locales, site seeing, and much more. While diving and snorkeling enthusiasts have long known and prized the spectacular underwater extravaganzas that have put Cozumel Island on the map, the above-water surroundings can hold their own as well: exquisite island beauty, luxurious beaches, soft sunrises and dazzling sunsets, giant turtles, migratory birds, iguanas, and many other captivating sites and sounds. A 45-minute ferry ride will put you on the mainland where you can see additional sites of interest.
As guests of the Occidental Grand Cozumel, you will have all the pampering you want and the privacy you need, and you'll be served by courteous hosts who understand how to navigate between the two. The employees are there to help ensure your stay is an enjoyable one. The Grand Cozumel is a family-friendly resort.
The hotel consists of nearly 300 rooms and suites distributed among several Colonial-style three-story buildings. Guests enjoy spacious swimming pools, Jacuzzis, gym and sauna, tennis courts, a kid's club for children, conference and meeting rooms and facilities, and several restaurants and bars. The resort has also built a pier for diving and other aquatic sports.
In addition to the daily and nightly recreational activities and entertainment at the Grand Cozumel, you will be close to other attractions as well, including the cities and towns of Cancun, Playa del Carmen, San Miguel, and other interesting sites such as Chichen Itza, Tulum, Punta Sur Ecotouristic Park, Chankanaab National Park, Cozumel Island Museum, and San Gervasio Archaeological Site.
The waters of Cozumel Island are a diver's and snorkeler's paradise. There is even excellent snorkeling close to the hotel! The Grand Cozumel resort lies at the edge of a white sand beach, with clear waters, remarkable visibility, and dozens of the best dive sites in the entire Caribbean. These watery reefs, walls, caves, and tunnels are teeming with hundreds of species of tropical fish. Dive the underwater passages and coral tunnels and walls and see a fantastic display of marine life and bursting color. See why the glowing reports of Cozumel's underwater world given by famous French explorer Jacques Cousteau live up to their billing! From novice to expert, all divers will find a great adventure awaiting them.
