Cozumel Condo Rental Photos and Description

Paradise awaits you in this 2,780 sq. ft. wonderful and luxurious two stories penthouse with mesmerizing Caribbean sights. This is the place to really relax and forget about it all. “It is huge, and look at the incredible view!” are the two main comments we immediately get from our guests.

The photos speak for themselves, by far the largest condo in the beautiful and exclusive Cantamar building (more than twice the size of the other ones), a two stories penthouse with the greatest view in the building & island; this relaxing seaside property will embezzle you from the first moment. It has a big living and dinning room as well as a large kitchen, upstairs you will find a huge main room with a large balcony with an awesome view of the Caribbean sea and private bathroom. Another room next to it also with ocean view and another room with jungle view, both these rooms sharing a 2 shower full bathroom.

Towels are provided in the condo (3 for the beach). We are located in the second floor, no elevator, but there will be someone to carry your luggage when you arrive.

Calling to the States is free and we have wireless internet and dish cable TV . Our in island agent is available to answer every question about the island.

If you are a large family or a group that wants to have independency inside the condo this property is ideal for you, Cantamar is an exclusive building with just eight condos located in the quiet North side of the island, a mere 15 minute walk from the town of San Miguel, unlike the south side properties that are far away from town -meaning expensive taxi trips- and crowded by cruise ship tourists and their taxis. Also south side condos are mainly located at public beaches, so forget about getting the privacy you take for granted at Cantamar.

The presidential house is located 800 feet from us, and there are many good reasons for it: we have the best sea colors, sights, and snorkeling right out of the condo. Our man made beach has plenty of beach beds as well as two palapas and a wood pergola, our pool has an incredible aerial effect, and there is plenty of beach beds next to it. There is a ladder to access the sea and our Oceanside is known for having the clearest shoreline water in Cozumel, so relax & enjoy!

You want to relax, have a romantic getaway and be at ease with your children? This is the place to do it! There is a Jack Nicklaus less than two miles away, and you can go south to a public beach for wave runners, parasailing, and more. You are an Ironman fan? There is a cycling & jogging course just outside our condo! And swimming training in the sea is incredible.

We have central air both in the lower and upper levels, and also ceiling fans in case you want to avoid the cold air conditioning breeze before an early dive.

Scuba diving & snorkeling in Cozumel is breathtaking, having been a dive master myself I constantly got appraisals from divers all over the world about it, the deep, night, current, reef diving are unparalleled, including the world renowned Cenote dive, found only in the Yucatan peninsula. The condo is equipped with a diving gear rising tank & shower, and you can be picked up for a diving excursion on our private pier.

You also have a large selection of restaurants with delicious local and international food, you may go into town to discover them or just relax in your condo. There is also a very large shopping selection in town, both local & international.

However if you are looking for a party condo for Spring Break, please do not bother to call. We are a quiet, relaxing location and wish to stay so to the benefit of our guests.

About Juan Luis

We are a Mexican family that has enjoyed Cozumel since the 1940´s and we consider the island our second home, we are originally from Mexico City and we are related both to the cultural sector in Mexico as public cultural trust fund manager, and to the water treatment sector designing plants & supplying equipment for it. We try to spend as much time as possible in Cozumel and see to it that our condo feels like a home and not like a cold, unpersonal hotel room.

Juan Luis purchased this condo in 1990

Why Juan Luis chose Cozumel

We really think we managed to find an exceptional place in an exceptional island and we feel great knowing our guest enjoy themselves in it. We were the first to purchase so we had the chance to choose the best condo available, both the large spaces & incredible views have made a big diference for us. Cozumel is the place to fall in love with.

What makes this condo unique

This is an easy one: our condo is by far the largest in a great building, the rest of the condos are less than half our size; you have the living & dinning & kitchen areas on the first floor and the bedrooms in the upper floor, so if you want to have a nice dinner (in a superb glass, 10 chair dinning table) with the kids sleeping upstairs, not in the next room, be welcomed to do so. Also our great balconies in both floors will let you admire the unique sunsets or have a Caribbean view outdoor meal. Our large living room will allow you to sit and relax with your friends. The beach and pool are private (not many of these in Mexico since beaches are considered federal property), and we have direct access to the sea and our private pier to be picked up by boats.

Just to help you with your ongoing effort to offer a great place to escape, I wanted to give you some more focused feedback that are the sum of the comments from our party:

Dining Room - Great table and chairs very nice for our large group! Wall mural was awesome.

Living room was very nicely decorated and furnished. (My wife wants to buy one of the little dolphin figurines on the corner table!)

Lower level patio was perfect - Nice chairs and table! Good view!

Upper Level patio - Great view, awesome hammock! A couple of small chairs would have been nice...

Kitchen - very suitable; no problems with stove or appliances! Water bottle very handy!

Pool / Sun area Great, very nice and private. Shower and Dive equipment area very nice.

Lower A/C was good; Upper A/C was a bit slow to come to life...

We did have two sisters come in to cook two nights... Veronica and ____? (sister).

We were diving with "Dive With Martin" and all was fantastic! Small boat, so no crowd and best dive sites! Contact Martin - Manager; (Reuben - Our Dive Master)

We will be back!

We are frequent travelers to Cozemel, but needed a larger place to stay for Holy Week. Got to Condo at noon on Palm Sunday, and had to call manager on his cell phone to let us in. All other guests in condo were very helpful while we waited for our room to be opened.

We are a family of scuba divers & found the condo to be perfect for our lifestyle - early breakfast, taxi to dive pier, pool & snorkeling in afternoon, naps, happy hour, walk to downtown for dinner, walk back and to bed!

Manager was very helpful & available, although we had few needs.

Beautiful view of ocean from our balconies, easy access in & out of ocean for swims & snorkeling.

Recommend a rental car for trips to town.

We hope to stay again next year!

We enjoyed our stay at Cantamar, Juan was very nice and worked with us to make sure all our needs were met. The snorkeling at the condo was wonderful. there was plenty of cooking supplies for our family, and enough space for us all to spred out and relax . The only thing I would recommend would be if you have any problems with sleeping the bed was very uncomfortable!! We would like to thank all the staff for all there kindness and making us feel welcome !! I would definitely stay here again!!

Fantastic Cantamar stay

This was a wonderful place to stay for our family. We are all divers and wanted to be close to our favorite dive company "Pepe's Scuba". We booked this condo for the size, location, the view and it had a dock for us to be picked up for our dives. This is our first time using VRBO and the owner was really nice and helpful and easy to work with. The condo had a flat screen TV in the living room and we had internet which we appreciated. We loved the cool mural in the dining room. The kitchen had everything you needed. We made breakfast and lunch there every day. If we needed anything, all we had to do is ask and they brought it up for us. The building is clean and updated. I feel the property is a good value. It is well located in a gated complex on the northern side of town. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk to get to town. We are definitely looking forward to coming back and using it again. It is on the 4th floor so you must be able to walk up 36 steps.

Thank you Juan for sharing your condo with us!

Great stay! A must do!

I decided to go last minute to Cozumel as I had some days off that I had to take before I forfeit them. As it was available, I manage to get a special rate for it. Also, as it is near the town and I didn't want to rent a car, I decided to take this one, and I have to say this was the best decision I could've taken!

The booking/payment process was nice and easy as it is via PayPal. The owner speaks French which was very helpful and a nice sell as I'm a French speaker.

I was welcomed by the island manager, a lady that is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She was always on top of things and available for any questions/help.

The owner had recently done some minor upgrades to the place. You can notice by the new appliances (TV, oven, washrooms, etc) and the closets/washrooms. Internet works fine for me and there is Netflix on site.

The stay included a cleaning lady 2 times, so she kept it quite neat.

The place is huge, 10 people could stay and it still does not feel cramped.

The view is amazing, one of the best you could have. There is a hammock on the second floor balcony where it is nice to sit and see the sunset.

The building is clean and updated. It has a pool, beach and security gate.

As other reviews mentioned, snorkeling is -by far- on of the best you could get around.

I hired a local cook -which was recommended by the island manager- and he cooked for us delicious local food. I would definitely recommend to do this. Also, for $50 bucks for two, you pay less than the average meal in the island and better quality.

The place is located 10-15 min -walking- from downtown, which was also nice so we could avoid taking a cab. Still, cabs charge $4 for a ride anywhere downtown, so we took one to go to the supermarket and another one back.

Thank you Juan for all your help and for the amazing stay, See you in 2015 :)

The property is in need of upgrade.


The bathroom toilet seats do not fit and collapse into the rim.

There is no storm window in the hall, therefore the sun heats up the entire upstairs.

There is no dryer (a dryer was indicated on the property description).

The safe is broken in the master bedroom.

The Television is vintage rear projecting tube. 99% of the stations are Spanish. The DVD player was dysfunctional.

Pots and pans are cheap and or have broken handles.

The linen in the master bedroom is threadbare.

The location of the condo is beautiful.

We visited other units in the building that are much nicer. They only have two bedrooms. Fast WiFi, flatscreen televisions, upgraded kitchen and bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I would like to make some precisions about it: We are surprised about the comments as he did not have any complaints at all during the month-stay. The staff even helped him with his snorkel trips and his travel around the region. Our staff was constantly checking by to see if anything was needed, however, the renter always mentioned there was no issues at all. When I talked with him after he left, he did not mentioned anything at all about all this, he just stated that he had a wonderful time traveling around. The renter left the apartment in a very dirty state. Although he had a special rate that would not include cleaning service, he never requested it at all. The pictures where he shows the state of the shower were taken at the end of his stay. We do have a cleaning person that leaves the place clean, as this is very important because it is a place for rent and we do care about having it clean. Even though I agree the TV is old (and we are upgrading it too), the internet and phones were correct. We clearly mention that we offer Mexican SAT TV, so this was no surprise at all to him. We are not sure what he was expecting. We haven't had any complain at all from any other guests about this as you can see in pasts reviews. For using the phone, there is no science about it and we clearly explain how to use it, you dial 001+the US number for calls home and for local mobile numbers is based on what the Mexican FCC has set up in place nationally -meaning this is the standard. It is not up to me to decide how to dial to the US. We are currently undergoing some pre-holiday season upgrading, as we know we have some minor issues, however, past reviews prove that we do have excellent customer service and respond to any of our guests needs. We welcome any feedback as we thrive to give a great experience but we believe this is a very unfair review from a very difficult tenant, as he left a hefty electricity bill, all the place was messy when he left and he still got his deposit back -even though he knew that it was part of the agreement that he should've paid some of these things it as he had a special rate. To end it, he mistreated the staff on his exit.


Great snorkeling right out of our private pier , where you can also get picked up by scuba diving (one of the world´s best) boats, half a mile to town and less than one mile to a Jack Niclaus. We have the BEST view & sunsets in town, there´s a bicicle & joging track right out of the condo., Sunset and Party (Pirate ship for kids!)sailboat cruises, Dune buggy tours, Mayan ruins, Day excursions to mainland (Playa del Carmen plus more), Spas & Massages, Beautiful sandy beaches w/activities and drink/food on East side and South end of island, Dolphin swims, etc..
