Terry's condo at Palmar are among the nicest condos in all of Cozumel... a hidden secret. Palmar lies right on the ocean road & walking distance to several decent bars & restaurants. Top notch facilities with 24Hr security guard, fantastic 2nd floor pool deck, workout facilities, and scuba gear rinse tank down by the 1st floor pool showers. The facility is immaculate as is Terry's 8th floor condo (the top floor), and is even with the top floor of Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas" visiting across the street. Spices in the cabinets, dishes, pots, pans, utensils all provided. Cooking in the full kitchen is easy & the breakfast bar is huge. Dishwasher, double door refrigerator w/ice maker & water dispenser. Nearby grocery stores including MEGA, Chedraui, & Sorianas... pre-made deli dishes, beer, wine, everything. MEGA is a fancy super grocery/department store, but we like the smaller Sorianas where the locals shop. Try Sorianas fresh fried chicken cooked at 4:30 pm or the grill under the tent...$1/$2 tip, he prepares and bar-b-ques your raw chicken, beef, pork, & veggies as a free store service. MEGA has great sauces, pico de gallo, ceviche, fresh breads, and fresh cut deli meats. Tell them ham, turkey, cheese, and use your fingers as a measure to tell them how much you want.
Paprika's across the street is convenient w/huge appetizers & margaritas. Watch the sunset on the small beach after a shore dive. Cold beer & grilled shrimp tacos... really good. "Dive with Mario" provides tanks & weights ($13) for a checkout dive or afternoon scuba/snorkel. Cruise ship passengers always use the reef right across from Palmar for their ship paid snorkeling adventures.
Local manager, Alex, comes on your 1st day. Email or call if you need anything. Wireless internet, local & long distance phone service. Entire condo is fully air conditioned. We turn A/C off when we leave, but doesn't matter much because place is so big & there's so much marble on the floors, the temperature barely budges. Instant hot water showers (electric heater vice tank) means you get as much as you need/want, which is nice after a day of diving. Plenty of plushy towels too.
Anyways, if you stay anywhere in Cozumel, this is the place to stay. It is well worth the price. After you stay here, you won't stay anywhere else. Also, a bit of advice... only tell your best friends about this place, because if everyone knew how nice it was, you wouldn't be able to rent it yourself ;)
