This condo complex is extremely beautiful, and the exterior landscaping and pools are well maintained. This particular condo is comfortable and exactly as described. Everyone in our party enjoyed the stay as we felt safe, as though it was our home for the week! Victor checked on us every day and provided the perfect suggestions when we asked about places to eat, cruise ship schedules, busyness of island traffic, directions, authentic and local eateries, and activities. Elena maintained the condo daily and did a marvelous job making us feel welcomed. The condo was extremely clean and well-maintained. We rented a car for the week and we highly recommend that those staying at Residencias Reef do this as well. We enjoyed the independence that a car provided when considering food, activities, and grocery shopping. We highly recommend Mark as he was helpful in answering questions prior to our trip and provided information for options to get from the airport to the condo. He was also available during our stay, had we needed to ask any questions. The beach is very quiet compared to the beach clubs further down the beach. This was a nice feature since we could walk a short distance to be around beachside food, drink and people if we wished, or we could stay on our own beach and enjoy the quietness. The ocean in front of the condos does have a reef, so we took our Keens and thoroughly enjoyed the ocean at all times of day. We did our grocery shopping in town at Mega, and the condo had plentiful supplies to do our own cooking.
Paradise Beach club has great food under a solid thatched structure. We ate at Ocean VIP club also, but it was more like eating under a tent. Do be aware that both of these beach clubs give you the bill with a tip already added into the total. Other restaurants on the island did not do this and we prefer to tip according to service. We enjoyed eating at Mr. Sanchos and El Coctelito also. We also picked up some pizza from Pizza Hut one evening because we missed our American food a bit.
We would recommend the parasailing and jet skiing at the nearby Ocean VIP beach club. The guys there do a great job with both. Cozumel FlyBoarding, in town was so much fun for our son. We also went to see the San Gervasio Mayan ruins and took the guided tour. We enjoyed the guide's sense of humor and her dog Maya.
Thank you so much, Mark! We had a great time at your condo. It was perfect.
