Let me first say I will try to be helpfull in this review.
We visited the Allegro in July 2008 when First Choice took over and there were some not so good changes, we still had fun though. I booked this trip really cheap not knowing what to expect, I did know First Choice(UK) was gone though. Our kids 9 and 12 loved the beach here and the kids pool, they did not like the Iberostar we went to last year.
I was very impressed with the some of the recent changes and we enjoyed our stay and will return. I will list some of the pros and cons however the pros outweigh the cons by a long shot.
As of two weeks ago the beach bar is open form 10:00am to 10:00pm-awesome.
Food was good on the buffets, we ate there three nights, I had steak, shrimp, ribs, chicken wings, roast beef, and some pork that was really good, there was also some stuff that was not good but don't eat it. I always found something good, the food was fresh and hot.
Best food was at lunch I thought, fresh fish, steak, fajitas.
The buffet has an air conditioned room that always had room and was very cold for dinner.
The omelette cook at the breakfast buffet made me egg white omelettes every morning at my request.
Beach was awesome as usual.
Rooms and grounds clean and nice.
Kids pool with slides was nice
Front lobby staff, very nice and helpfull, they even had our names in the dailey newsletter welcoming us back.
Nice fire show on the beach one night at the hotel.
Bartenders are good except one, can not remember his name.
Nice lighted walkways and music playing throughout the resort.
Cab ride is 180 pesos or $15USD to downtown.
We got a late checkout at 3:00, it cost $10 per hour if anyones interested in that.
Its a buffet and the wait staff is understaffed, I would recommend getting your own drinks just like you would if you were at a buffet at home.
The rooms are small and the beds are firm, this should be nothing new to anyone that has stayed there.
If you are on the second floor the air is not real cold late in the evening but will be cold about 2:00am.
If you are a picky person and have to have someone wait on you hand and foot this is not your resort but if you do not mind getting your own drinks its a great deal and beautifull hotel with an awesome beach.
We could always find a palapa and chairs on the beach or pool anytime.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In Mexico’s Caribbean there is a tiny island just bursting with life – it is Cozumel and the Allegro Cozumel. Right on the famous Sand Francisco Beach, two worlds of adventure co-exist: The Fun-in-the-sun beach and the amazing undersea Palancar Reef. Whatever you choose to pursue, Allegro Cozumel places it right at your fingertips. Beach Volleyball, tropical bars, restaurants, and nightclubs keep life on land exciting, while the on-site dive shop and big-game sport-fishing charters offer a gateway into the dazzling marine sanctuary of Cozumel’s waters. And when you awake the next morning, after a relaxing night’s sleep in your comfortable guest room, you’ll find there’s even more to explore, because the adventure never stops at Allegro. For the young ones, there is plenty to do from building sand castles alongside the beautiful powdery white sand beach, get physical at the amazing kid’s multiplay covered playground, catch some giggles at the water park, or take advantage of the many activities offered by the Kids clubs. ... more less
