Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2.5 baths, Sleeps 6

A recent guest said “it was like staying in a Presidential Suite at a 5 star hotel.” All reviews rave about the place. Read them!

• Top floor(8th) of new building-no noise above

• 1900 Sq. Ft. on 1 floor

• Floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows

35 Foot long balcony overlooks ocean

• King Bed, Queen Bed & Queen pullout

• High speed Wifi, free US/Canada calls both directions

•Snorkeling & Scuba across the street

•Great pool, Hot Tub, Tennis Courts & Gym

•24/7 Security

Our 1900 sq. ft. condo is located on the top floor of an elegant 8 story building that has just been completed----Palmar Condominiums. It is becoming THE place to stay in Cozumel for good reason. The grounds and building are very elegant and the amenities are first class. Our has wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass leading out onto a 35 ft. long deck with a magnificent view of the ocean! Look at the pictures. And, go to link to see more pictures/video of Palmar complex.

A small beach club across the street provides a place to sun in the sand. It also provides easy access to one of the top shore snorkeling sites on the island as evidenced by the fact that many snorkel boat operators bring literally hundreds of their paying customers to this spot every day (see photo). This area also provides a nice shore dive as a warm up before diving the deeper reefs. While diving and snorkeling we have seen eels and lobsters in the coral formations just below our place as well of thousands of fish large and small.

A beautiful very large private pool has a huge tiled area surrounding it with chairs, A Palmar residents holds yoga classes there twice week you can go to. The cabanas, shaded 'beds' and pool side wifi makes it a place you can hag out for hours and a hot tub offers a great place to watch sunsets. The pool area has become the gathering place of residents of Palmar and vacations renters. Most units in Palmar are owned by who are local professionals. Several others are Americans who live there permanently or spend several months a year in Cozumel. It is a great place to local meet people, hang out and watch the activity on the ocean. A private tennis court, game room (pool, ping pong) and gym are part of the complex and can be used by our guests.

Palmar is situated in the 'south' hotel district which means it is about 5 minutes, by car/taxi, or a 25 minute walk from downtown. It is also right in the heart of lots of activity in the south hotel district. You can walk across the street to go snorkeling or to the dive shop and you have quick access to restaurants and shops, including a 24 hr convenience store located just below the pool area.

As you will see in the photos the views are magnificent. By being on the 8th (top) floor your view 'from above' lets you clearly see the incredible variety of greens and blues that has made Cozumel's waters famous. You also have a wonderful vantage point to watch cruise ships come and go as well as sail boats, snorkelers and other boats seemingly dance across the sparking turquoise water during the day. Then, every evening you watch the sun set in the Caribbean. It is truly a magical place to stay.

You might want to plan your day so you can enjoy the beach, water or town during the day & be home to enjoy watching the sunset from the large balcony which is where we find ourselves spending most of our time. Mornings are glorious......breakfast on the balcony while looking down into the incredible water is something we never tire of.

We also like the fact that the building does not directly face west. The building was wisely designed slightly facing south so you get the sunset views without the afternoon sun making it too hot to enjoy the balcony as the sun goes down. This may seem a small thing...it is not. Many condos face directly west and although views can be good it is too hot to be outside until after sunset. The buildings layout also knocks down wind. We have sat on the balcony and watched storms blow across the sea with lightening flashing in the distance. Quite a show.

We have taken pains to decorate the condo beautifully and to furnish the kitchen with first class cookware and other things needed by those who love to cook. If you prefer to have a local cook for you that can be arranged at a reasonable cost by our local property manager.

There are two bedrooms and each has its own bath. There is a queen sized pullout couch in the living room and a guest bathroom near the entry way so people staying on the pullout do not have to bother fellow guests in the middle of the night.

A washer and dryer are in a utility room. All cleaning supplies are provided as is maid service when you leave. You can get more cleaning if you would like for a modest fee (about $25)

For divers, the dive shop across the street (Del Mar Aquatics) offers 10% discounts for people staying in our condo if you do at least 3 days of diving with them. It is a top notch, full service shop. They also have lockers for your gear.

Our local property management company will make sure you get settled in and check in every 2-3 days to insure your stay is what you hoped for. They can also coach you about things you want to know about.........things to do, places to shop, restaurants, etc.

As you can tell by reading this we intend to make this a first class condo that you will remember staying at for the rest of your life. We think this is why so many people staying with us keep coming back! We love Cozumel and want you to love your stay.

I love talking about Cozumel so feel free to call me with questions.

About Terry Benjamin

Cathy and I live in Colorado and LOVE Cozumel. She is an attorney and I am the Director of a human service agency. After visiting Cozumel for 25 years we were fortunate enough to buy a truly spectular condo that we hope to spend more time in as the years pass.

Terry Benjamin purchased this condo in 2009

Why Terry Benjamin chose Cozumel

Palmar is a first class property so it is a wonderful place to spend time when you are not out and about.

Cozumel is a very relaxed, laid back place to be and has some of the best diving in the world. We love the specific area in which our place is located. As you can see in photos the cruise ships come and go in front of our place. Those floating cities create a romantic magic that is a source of entertainment in the morning when they arrive and even more so when they depart...at sunset...lit from stem to stern. Plus, there is a lot of small boat activity in the waters below our place that we find entertaining. We chose to be on the 8th floor because it provides a front row seat to an ocean full of activity. We also chose this location because we did not want to be too close to town. Being in the 'south' hotel district means you are closer to the really great beaches which are a few miles south of town. If you are in the 'north' hotel district you have to drive thru town to get to the best beaches which can take an extra 15-20 min.

Last but not least, the owners/managers of Palmar are totally committed to making Palmar a gem on the island. As you will see in guest reviews the staff is very friendly and helpful and when issues crop up are very responsive to us and to our guests.

What makes this condo unique

Most people living in Palmar are year around residents are are successful business people on the island. It is a great mix of Anglos and Mexicans which makes it feel a less touristy. This has been a wonderful plus for us and something that is impossible to get in a hotel full of tourists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a lovely condo that has many excellant features. When we walked into the condo, it still had the "new" smell. The beds were very comfortable - sheets and towels were good quality. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utencils and pots/pans. We spent hours on the balcony in the mornings and evenings watching the activity below. The condo is convenient to downtown and the south end beaches. It was easy to hail a taxi - fares from this location are very reasonable. The pool is large and the tile decking and chairs were new. There is also a small convenience store on the front side of the complex for beer, water, snacks, ATM, etc. There are also many small restaurants within a short walking distance from the condo. The owners were very responsive to questions we had prior to our trip and the management company on site stopped by almost every day to see if we needed anything. We enjoyed our stay here and would rent the condo again!

AMAZING STAY!!
This condo was absolutely fabulous! I'll start with the décor and comfort. Very nicely decorated and all the comforts from home. We only slept in the master suite and the bed was very comfortable with little noise at night. Loved ALL the bathrooms!! The kitchen was nicely stocked with nice pots and pans and all the necessities. The main living arrangement was perfect for a couple or could easily accommodate two couples or even a family. One thing I have to mention is that they have two phones in the condo. One phone for calling locally and another for calling the US. This was a huge bonus! We were able to call the US at no charge and talk to our family. They also have FREE WIFI!!! Another bonus!!!
The views.... SPECTACULAR ! WOW....... We could sit on the lanai ( balcony ) for hours and watch the cruise ships, people, boats for hours!
The pool was wonderful and most of the time it would just be my hubby and myself. I think we may have shared it once.
Everyone at the complex was very nice and helpful. The complex itself is very clean and we felt safe at all times. Alex stopped by to see how everything was and was very sweet and knowledgeable.
The pictures don't even do justice for how beautiful this condo is! You will be amazed!!
We look forward to staying again and bringing our family !
This is truly a gem in Cozumel!
Can't wait to come back!!!

Fantastic Condo. Probably the nicest in all of Coz

  • 5 of 5
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 ;)

Spectacular Penthouse Home! Can't wait to return

Spectacular Penthouse Home! Can't wait to return
  • 5 of 5
This is truly a magnificent penthouse vacation home. The photos are beautiful but do not do the unit justice in my opinion. The building is superb quality with glass and chrome balconies and shiny tile floors, all perfectly maintained. Modern everything, quiet, great property managers. Close to downtown Cozumel, scuba diving, snorkeling and great little restaurants. I went with my three grown children and my step-daughter to celebrate the publication of my 2nd book and my two sons graduations from college, and could not have been more pleased. We will be back!

Hint : fly into Cozumel directly, while the cab and ferry are convenient, it is too time consuming and a bit crowded.

Outstanding. Terry it surpassed our expectations.

Your condo is superb. Great location. I will be back. Thank you again. Everything was clean and well maintained. You provided excellent customer service. I will definitely refer your condo to my friends and family. Really love the La Mission on Ave. Centro. Best lobster on the island. A 2 pounder for $26.00. Can't beat it.

Great family location away from tourist traps!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay at this place. Outstanding price, location and perfect for a family vacation. We have three boys, including an 18 month old and there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably. Kids spent a lot of time at the pool and my oldest learned how to swim there. A large section of the pool is only 1 foot deep, so our 18 month old was able to walk around and enjoy it. Kitchen was really convenient and we did a lot of cooking at home. Couldn't have picked a better location and staff was super friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back and recommend it to anyone going to Coz!
