Two giant US-owned hotel groups rumored to be planning new projects in Cozumel are remaining tight-lipped and refusing to confirm any details.

Local newspapers have claimed a Sheraton complex is being built on the island and that AMResorts is also planning two hotels.

Starwood’s spokesperson for Latin America, Laura Canepa said, “We are in talks and open to the possibility of a hotel [in Cozumel],” but, “due to confidentiality contracts we have with different developers we cannot be specific and give details for our plans.”

AMResorts is part of the Pennsylvania-based Apple Leisure Group that owns airline USA3000 and package vacation company, Apple Vacations.

It manages a range of resort brands and has more than 25 hotels around Mexico and the Caribbean, including Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun and Dreams Cancun Resort and Spa on the mainland, not far from Cozumel.
