About Robert Gomez

Luis Gomez, a Yucatan Peninsula native, arrived to the small town of Cancun in August 1982, a place of white sands, turquoise beaches and opportunity. Always a dreamer and entrepreneur, Luis’s first business was a restaurant and bar, then a boutique, an ice cream shop called Los Pinguinos (The Penguins), and finally, in 1984 he launched his own Editorial Company, Dive Mexico, dedicated to the production and distribution of postcards, tourist guides, books and souvenirs.

In the year 2000, Luis bought land in Puerto Morelos and began his dream of building a home away from home, beach resort and dive center.

With the help of his girlfriend Isabel Maria, and his son Robert who both got their PADI Divemaster certification, “The Diving Lodge” finally opened its doors in 2012.

It seems that it is an on going piece of art, as Luis is relentless with every detail and always enhancing and adding new decks, art and his personal touch as you can see in most rooms.

In 2013 Luis’s daughter Briana and his son Robbie began to add to the amenities of The Diving Lodge by creating a yoga and meditation space, a bar and lounge, and a beach-front shop called, The Sand Traveler’s Boutique.

Changing the approach from vacation rental to bed and breakfast, brother and sister are eager to provide guests with an unforgettable vacation experience.

Heaven on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our friends found this gem right on the beach in Puerto Morelos and we decided to join them this year for our February vacation. The family that runs the lodge is absolutely wonderful - they make you feel right at home, but also give you your space to kick back and enjoy the beach.

We were thrilled with our villa (and I'm a picky traveler). The room was very spacious with a king bed, view of the water, a kitchenette, sitting area, large bathroom with lovely tile and a glass door/walk in shower. Our teenage son shared a villa with his buddy and they each had plenty of space and bunk beds.

We loved being able to just walk right out onto the beach to read a book, swim or play volleyball. Luis, Isabel and Robbie are very accommodating and always cheerful. I highly recommend adding the meals to your stay. Elvira and Isabel do a great job and everything is absolutely delicious. We never used the kitchen in our room. :)

The weather didn't cooperate with our diving plans (too windy), but we'll definitely go back and try again next year. I highly recommend the Puerto Morelos Diving Lodge and our family will return. Great value, beautiful scenery and lovely hosts!

Diving Lodge is a spot of paradise !

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in our bungalow on he beach. Ours was large enough for three adults, with a double and a king, plus kitchenette and bath. A sumptuous breakfast was served in the mornings, each day in a different lovely spot. One day under the pallapa, another in the porch overlooking the reef, and once at the table on the sand. We snorkeled and were impressed at the efforts made to preserve the reef. Hospitality was unsurpassed. Thank you to Isabel, Luis and Roberto, also to Jerry who advises you to wear buoyancy vests while snorkeling to keep feet away from reef destruction. Wear yours!

Our second visit! Can't wait to go back again!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to return to this wonderful diving lodge. Owners Luis, Isabel and Robbie are so kind and always working to make sure everything is perfect. Jerry (owns the boat for snorkeling and diving), Elvira (the cook) and staff add to the great atmosphere. The accommodations are very comfortable and very clean. Soap, shampoo, towels all provided. With our large group, all meals were prepared and served to us (we selected menu prior to our visit). Our last night we had a special dinner prepared by Luis and Isabel including great margaritas. Robbie was always quick to reply to any questions prior to our visit. Our trip was delayed because of bad weather but Robbie was very accommodating and worked with us to allow us to stay our full stay. The town of Puerto Morelos is very close, a 2 mile walk on the beach or short bike or drive. Play del Carmen about 30 minutes away by car, fun town to do a little shopping or take the ferry to Cozumel. We rented a car which gave us flexibility but Robbie researched transportation for us prior to our visit in case we didn't want to do that. We have never gone back to the same vacation spot before but couldn't resist going back and we are already planning our third visit. Loved every minute of our stay, can't say enough great things. Thank you Luis, Isabel, Robbie and staff!

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

The hosts, the setting, the accommodations and overall experience were exceptional. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the tropical days and nights. The snorkeling was some of the best I've experienced in some time--a healthy reef with lots of coral and sea life. We will definitely return. One night we were treated to a special dinner with incredible music performed especially for our family group by their very talented son. Every family member treated us with gracious care. How very special and memorable it was.

A peaceful beach paradise with an authentic feel

  • 5 of 5

Going into this property is fun and exciting since you drive through the jungle for quite a bit before you reach the enchanting destination. The property itself is unique and built by the owner with lots of care and attention to detail, with a rustic but very comfortable feel! We've been staying there for a few years now with a group of friends and its always the best of times. Wether we are hanging out by the bar listening to music and making fresh coconut drinks or going for a kayak ride... it feels like you're a kid again just hanging out by the beach, nothing more, nothing less.

At night this place is super peaceful and you can hear the sound of the waves crashing against the beach... and the birds chirping in the morning is truly fantastic. By the end of the trip you really don't want to leave! Not to mention Luis & Isabel are the best cooks ever... even as simple as the rice and beans they serve in the morning... something to be missed!

I look forward to future vacations in this beautiful place with amazing people.
