Great Getaway!
First rate hotel with first rate service. Best beach in Cancun- warm calm water without seaweed. Two big pools as well so you won't feel crowded. Take the breakfast option as it is worthwhile and not many alternatives nearby. Located near but not in the party zone so it is a quiet retreat that is accessible to the nightlife if you want that. There is an unadvertised Happy Hour so the drinks can be affordable. Free wi-fi is a little slow but not bad. You can pay a premium hi- speed if you want to so be aware when you connect as there might be an additional charge on the bill.

Awesome hotel stay!
One of the best hotels I've stayed in, either for business or pleasure. We had an ocean view room and the view was gorgeous. The rooms were clean, quite, functional. The staff service was impeccable. Everyone was so kind and polite. Even gardeners and pool boys greeted you with a smile. I took advantage of the beach side food service and it was really good food and great drinks. The breakfast buffet was also top notch. The beach was clean, quiet and secluded from all the craziness of the spring breakers. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozumel 2018, El Presidente
I have stayed several time, last time,four years go, the staff was unfriendly and the property showed it’s age. This time I find the staff friendly and well trained. The property was fresh and very nice. The verity of restaurants and places to just hang out made it feel special and not just the same location to enjoy your time. If thingnof a Cozumel vacation with the spouse or kids, I recommend you consider the El Presidente.

Would stay again
Most of our trip was at Playa del Carmen and we only stayed 1 day in Cancun. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler as it is suitable for all types of travelers. The rooms are great and the beds are very comfortable as in all Intercontinentals I have stayed. The location is perfect, some shops are a short walk away and the main nightlife is less than a 5 minute drive. There are local buses that drive by every few minutes up and down the strip and cost about U$0.75. The pool area is nice and clean and not overpowered by chlorine or overcrowded. The breakfast buffet was convenient but not the best. I would stay here again.
