Eight years ago, we headed down to Mexico for our first vacation as a couple. We fell in love with the white sand beaches, the crystal clear waters, and the exciting atmosphere. Since then, Mexico has become one of our favorite places to visit together. Amidst the chaos of the holidays, we decided to take a quick lovers getaway to the Caribbean island of Cozumel. During our time in Cozumel, we stayed at the Occidental Cozumel for a relaxing and romantic vacation.


Occidental Cozumel Location

The Occidental Cozumel is located on the idyllic Caribbean island of Cozumel, just 45-minutes off the coast of Playa Del Carmen. Set along the serene “south hotel zone” of Cozumel, the Occidental Cozumel has a prime beachfront position for sunny days on the Sea and scenic Caribbean sunsets. Cozumel is a safe island filled with plenty of lively restaurants, bars, and shopping.

For couples looking to visit Cozumel, you can either fly into Cancun and take a fast ferry from Playa Del Carmen or fly directly into Cozumel Airport from certain airports in the U.S.


Wellness at the Occidental Cozumel

Wellness always plays a large part in where we travel and we loved the bevy of personalized wellness treatments and experiences available to us while at the Occidental Cozumel. In the mornings, we would head to the fitness center to enjoy heart-pumping workouts. We also enjoyed a lavish couples massage at the spa, which we would highly recommend. After the couples massage, the Occidental Cozumel team treated us to a romantic Jacuzzi experience complete with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne.


The Suite

We had the luxury of staying at the Royal Level at Occidental Cozumel, an exclusive area of the Occidental Cozumel. During our lover’s getaway, we stayed in a Royal Level Junior Suite, a premier room at the Occidental Cozumel. Our room was complete with a living room, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, and two balconies.

By staying in the Royal Level at Occidental Cozumel, we were privy to:

  • Complimentary bowl of fruit
  • Minibar (soft drinks, beer and water)
  • Bathrobe and slippers
  • Cable television
  • Nightly turn-down service
  • Private lobby with business centre
  • Concierge service
  • Access to the swimming pool with hydromassage
  • 24-hour room service (free of charge)
  • Priority bookings in the speciality restaurants and La Carreta restaurant, exclusive to the Royal Level

Activities at the Occidental Cozumel

While the Occidental Cozumel offers plenty of activities including yoga and beach volleyball, its nearby reefs are also home to some of the best scuba diving in the world. The Occidental Cozumel has its own private dock where divers can get picked up from the waters edge for an epic day of diving. The second largest coral reef in the world is just minutes from the Occidental Cozumel, making it the perfect place for couples who dive to stay.


Cozumel All Inclusive

The Occidental Cozumel is fully all-inclusive so we always had access to 24-hour room service, a multitude of restaurants, and cocktails. Because of the all-inclusive aspects and number of available activities, the resort is very social which was a huge plus to us because we always like to make friends while we travel. Whether we wanted to be social butterflies and play beach volleyball with the crowd or take a moment to ourselves and romance each other at the spa, we always had the option to make our vacation just what we wanted at the Occidental Cozumel.
