Cancun or Cozumel?
Have been in Puerto Vallarta twice...would like to stay on the other side for a cleaner ocean...want all inclusive,on a good beach, adults only, (I work at a school & I love kids, but at Christmas I need PEACE and QUIET) Good beach for swimming , close to shopping, do not want a resort any bigger than 300 rooms....any suggestions? Where to stay? Thanks!

Presidente Intercontinental Cozumel.<BR>NOT Cancun at Christmas. We went once. Kids galore and crowds everywhere...<BR>I believe the hotel has 250+ rooms - laid out very well. Great beach, mostly adults.<BR>The only AI I hear good things about on Cozumel is the Allegro, but there are others I'm sure.<BR>I would never recommend an AI on Cozumel - too many fantastic restaurants...

Totally agree with Nancy. No AL needed on Cozumel. Great restaurants. You might also like Hotel Playa Azul - near the new golf course, beautiful beach. I don't believe any place is "adults only" on Cozumel, but we've never been bothered by kids unless its spring break.

No adults only in Cozumel, at least not yet.<BR>I like Iberostar the best but is quite a way out of San Miguel.<BR>El Dorado Resort and Spa, El Dorado Royale, Royal Hideaway and Adventura/Spa Palace are Adults only in the Mayan Suncoast Area.<BR>Royal Hideaway is the closest to Playa Del Carmen and shopping, but since it is AAA 5 Diamond, it is expensive.<BR>El Dorado has daily shuttle to PDC and El Dorado Royale has daily shuttle to Cancun.<BR>You can view pictures of all at<BR>click on the state nearest you and any agencies web address.<BR>All Wired Flyer Agencies specialize in this area.
