Why David Hammer-Owner chose Cozumel

For several years, I wanted to develop rental units for tourists, both to generate income and for a winter vacation home. As an attorney, I had helped a client buy a duplex in San Carlos, Mexico.

In December ‘96, my youngest son and I drove the tourist corridor between Cancun and Tulum, continuing south to Chetamal and inspecting property in every town and fishing village in between. On New Years Day we took the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. I liked what I saw. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, friendly people, and a healthy economy. It has the same small town atmosphere of my home town in California where you can walk the streets at night in safety. Cozumel is a world premier SCUBA diving location and has unique Mayan ruins. There are excellent restaurants, large supermarkets, friendly people, a one of the best Carnival celebrations in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Excellent property, close to town and shopping"

This has been our 5th time staying at Casa Martillo, and we wouldn't stay any were else. Property is far enough away from town, but close enough to walk to town and shopping. Around a 5-10 minute walk to the Barracuda to be picked up for scuba diving. Property is well maintained, nice and secure, staff are friendly and housekeeping is good.

A Merry Christmas indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Our Cristmas stay at Casa Martillo was perfect. David ( the owner ) provided spot-on information before we left and had information at the property that absolutely made the trip. Marilu ( property manager), Antonio (maintenance man), and the maids kept everything spotless and in tip-top shape.

Our daily routine of a late breakfast, a walk downtown, an afternoon snorkel, and pleasant evening meal was so relaxing and hard to leave and return home from. Oh, to be able to enjoy Casa Martillo more often.....a wonderful, safe, home away from home!! Thank you so much David and the staff at Casa Martillo.

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Casa Martillo is a hacienda style inn with 6 apartments surrounding a pool and a covered patio with an outdoor kitchen. Each night we fired up the grill and guests in the other apartments brought out their dinner to cook and share before-dinner drinks. We had many memorable evenings with new and old friends! The apartments were clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and responsive. There is a rack in the laundry room for hanging dive gear/wetwuits as well as a large sink to rinse your gear. Grocery shopping is about 4 blocks away. The kitchen is fully equipped. It was great! Next time, we will bring our family and friends. In contacting David, the owner, we had the chance to prepay here in the states to avoid international credit card charges. Some of the guests stay at Casa Martillo for a month at a time....and we can see why they come back year after year. We will be back!

We rented a two bedroom unit for 10 days at Casa Martillo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condos are clean, comfortable and spacious. It's in a great neighborhood that is nice and quiet with very minimal traffic. The maids take very good care of you. Very nice pool - great for relaxing in the afternoon. For those of us who have trouble totally unplugging, wi-fi internet access allows you to leisurely surf the net while on vacation. We had no problems associated with our stay and would definitely stay there again. It's a great deal.

We have been going to Cozumel for 14 years and have stayed at many different places. We stayed at Casa Martillo for the first time this year and it is definitely the best. We will stay there as often as we can in the future.
