Why David Hammer-Owner chose Colonia Andres

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.

What makes this condo unique

Nice courtyard with pool, fountain, and covered barbecue area for outside dining and socializing. Free washer and dryer. Full sized kitchen appliances. Large, high quality bath towels and pool towels. Security safes. Friendly and efficient maids and maintenance man. Clean and well maintained.

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.

My stay at Casa Martillo

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying at Casa Martillo for the last 10 years or so at least once a year. The property is well managed, clean and safe. It's only a 3 minute walk to the ocean and 10 to Barracuda Hotel reef where I train my scuba students and/or board scuba boats. It's incredibly easy, reasonable in price and I'd highly recommend it to all my friends and/or relatives.

Terrific Place to Stay in Cozumel!!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend you staying here on your next trip to Cozumel. So much nicer than any hotel especially the price. It has all the comforts of home and more. A pool right outside your door, AC, full kitchen, TV & maid service. Property is beautifully kept up. Location can't be beat. Two big supermarkets nearby in a very safe neighborhood. Cabs are plentiful but walking to town or the water is also easy. Staff is great & helpful. It also has a place to hang your wetsuit, if you're divers. Please choose Casa Martillo next time. You won't regret it.

Best Place to stay in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Cozumel for over 20 years now & Casa Martillo is by far the best place to stay. It has all the amenities of home. Each place has a full kitchen, AC, comfortable beds & WiFi. There's a pool, BBQ area on a covered palapa. The people who work there are terrific. The location is really great in a very safe neighborhood. It's 2 blocks from 2 major supermarkets so you don't need to eat out at every meal. The price couldn't be beat either compared to the hotels. I can't say enough about this place. I highly recommend it!!!!
