Iberostar Cozumel All Inclusive Dive Packages 

The Iberostar Cozumel all inclusive resort is a very popular location for divers, most particularly divers who get sea sick easily. This lush tropical oasis is the furthest south resort on the island of Cozumel. That fact alone has many benefits. Most notably, as already discussed, your boat rides will be the shortest possible rides in Cozumel. On our boats you are about 5 minutes or less to the famous Palancar Reef. If there is a negative to this, it would be missing out on all the reefs located in the middle and north of Cozumel. You lose about 60% or more of the dive sites by being s far south. Still, a fair trade for any diver that battles sea sickness.

Otherwise, as you might expect from the well-known Iberostar family of resorts, their Cozumel location is a very beautiful property. You are approximately 30 minutes from the airport – 20-25 minutes to downtown San Miguel. Located along one of the Caribbean’s finest beaches, you won’t run out of perfect sand in either direction. Head north and you have a considerable walk to Occidental resort. Head south and you have Palancar Beach Club most likely farther than you’ll care to walk. In between is flawless Instagram-worthy beach. Toss in a sunset over the open ocean and it really is what you’re dreaming about as your search Caribbean diving destinations. If there is a negative to this, it would be the poor snorkeling in the surrounding area. It’s mostly sand and sea grass out front, and reaching reef is a looong swim off shore which is certainly unsafe from constant boat traffic.

A Little Wildlife

Bungalo-style villas are scattered across the Iberostar Cozumel property. Choose from gardens in the rear, pool and beach upfront, or large villas for families and of course oceanfront villas. Meals are spread across four restaurants, and should you need a break from resort food, immediately neighboring to the north is Alberto’s Beach Bar and Restaurant. If you need a break from the ocean a massive pool plus two others (total of three pools) assure you can find your own private spot to cool off. Thre bars promise refreshing beverages are never too distant. 

One thing that is probably understated at these southern resorts – Iberostar, Allegro, and Occidental, is the abundance of wildlife you may see walking through the resorts. As these properties are literally carved into an tropical island jungle, seeing native animals like the Coati or endemic raccoons plus, of course, the iguanas and their larger cousins the crocodiles. Usually you’ll find parrots, both captive and wild, and Iberostar Cozumel in particular has pink flamingos.

Sanitation fee of 25.36 peso (about $1.25) per night charged at resort check-in.

Iberostar Cozumel is the Dive Vacation of Dreams

The nice part about Ibersotar Cozumel is it is not only a fantastic location for scuba divers to enjoy, but the whole family will be well taken care of. Live entertainment most evenings, water sports and pool activities, and of course simple relaxation in paradise is sure to please everyone in your family. The children’s Star Camp is ideal to entertain your children, too. As an added bonus there is an on-site beauty salon and spa – perfect for keeping the wife/mom happy! For those that cannot unplug, free WiFi is available. Need to stay in shape while on vacation? I first suggest thinking that thought, but if you insist you can take advantage of the fitness room and tennis courts.

Iberostar Cozumel Accommodations

The Iberostar Cozumel offers 9 different room levels, which is sure to please any traveler. Our pricing is based from the Standard Room. All Standard Rooms come with your choice of King bed or two Double beds. A maximum of 4 people per room, please. All these rooms are located at the back of the property and offer the furthest walk to the ocean or pool area. Stepping up to the Superior Room offers you a bit more space, but still the same amenities and options. For those with a family, we might suggest the Family Room for lodging. This room level has a maximum of 6 adults and is two rooms. One room is a King bed and balcony, and the second room is two Double beds. This room does require a minimum of 4 people to reserve.

If you are looking to upgrade your experience a bit more, you have a couple nice options. Having views of the gardens are the Special Room, the Suite, and the Star Prestige Room. These rooms are a Tropical/Jungle view, and have a maximum of 3 guests per room. The Suite adds a second living room area with a sofa bed, and a private balcony. The Star Prestige adds an upgraded and spacious bathroom and shower.

Water Time

Just have to be near the water you say? No worries, we have a few options for that, too! The first option is the Pool View room. As the name would imply, you get quick access and a nice view of the pool area. Maximum occupancy is 3 adults. 

But you were looking for an ocean view? Iberostar Cozumel can do that, too. Choose from the Ocean View room, or the Ocean Front room. The details are in the name as the amenities between the two are the same. And finally, for those that want the best seat in the hosue, there is the Presidential Suite. A massive 1239 sq ft of front room seating to the best sunset money can buy.

Food & Drink at Iberostar Resort Cozumel

The Iberostar Cozumel all inclusive dive resort spoils you with four different restaurants and three different bars and three different pools. Yes, they really try to spoil your desire for food, drinks, and entertainment. Breakfast starts at 6am, a perfect schedule for the diver looking for our morning boats. Dinner is served starting at 6pm and served until 10:00pm but the lobby bar remains open until 1:00am for late night snacking. Lunch begins at 11am throughout the resort beach bars and pool bars.

The Cozumel Buffet serves breakfast daily and a rotating variety of meals for the evening. The El Cedral rotisserie is a lunch and dinner buffet for Mexican and International cuisine. Ala carte entrees are also available, but do remember to make a reservation upon arriving to the hotel. The Los dos Maria’s Mexican restaurant is also reservations required, but also is open all night long from 10pm until 6am for the night owls looking for snacks. Finally, the La Pagoda Japanese restaurant is a favorite by all guests so again, don;t forget your reservations upon check-in. This is a dinner-only location with a dress code and open from 6:30pm-10pm only.

A total of three bars are found at Iberostar Cozumel. Upon arrival you’ll likely spot the El Patio lobby bar.

If you need an off-resort option, Alberto’s Beach Bar is down the beach a bit.
