Awesome!!!!Spectacular Condo,Caribbean Decor with large local artist will think Jimmy Buffet, Tommy Bahama, with this bold decor and large 10 foot stack back doors on two sides of the living and dinning room overlooking the private HEATED lap pool , beach area and both of the large pools. The first pool is parallel to the beach and palm grove. The second pool is steps from our terrace. No expense has been spared in the decor of this condo. Comfortable, upscale furniture, a state of the art kitchen, daily maid service and other amenities surround you in luxury. Here you will enjoy tropical breezes and perfect sunsets. Dine indoors or outside, or take a short walk on the beach to Carlos and Charlies, The Paradise or Mr. Sanchos for food, drink and water sports. Diving, snorkeling and fishing can be arranged by Miguel, our property manager and dive master for a more personal experience. You are a 5 minute boat ride from one of the top 5 diving destinations in the world!!

About Laurie Meyers

My husband and I are hard working folks from CT, who love to travel and enjoy life. When we get time to escape, we often use VRBO and Home Away to plan many of our vacations to avoid the tourist “crunch” and discover some of the best homes, condos, and villas an area has to offer. We've been lucky enough to visit many Caribbean islands, Hawaii, and Europe but time after time, we return to Mexico, specifically Cozumel. It has been our long time dream to purchase a home to retire to, where the sun is always shining, the water is always warm, and the people are always friendly.

Laurie Meyers purchased this condo in 2010

Why Laurie Meyers chose Quintana Roo

Having visited the eastern Mexican coast many times over the last 15 years, we always gravitate to Cozumel for the superb diving and snorkeling, the ease of island life, the excellent variety of dining spots and shopping, and the friendly people, all of which create the perfect balance of adventure and solitude. Isn’t that why we take vacations? We’ve stayed at some of the best all-inclusives on the island, and usually enjoyed them, except that you share your precious vacation time with so many other people. We prefer vacationing with our chosen guests and setting our own times for sleeping, meals, and excursions, not those of a hotel.

As soon as we were able, we set out investigating where we would like to purchase a second home to eventually retire to. After much thought, and a lot of looking, we chose Cozumel. We have always been drawn to the beauty of the island, and the residents who hold strong family values and integrity, while extending friendship to us outsiders. If you dive or snorkel, you cannot find a better place to do it, unless you travel to Australia! And if you don’t, there is still a wide variety of things to do for any age. This place leaves a lasting impression on you once you visit.

Besides the lap pool on our private veranda, there are two pools one located right on the beach. Our property manager, Miguel is there to greet you and get you settled in. There is so much to do.....or not--your choice. You may want to shop in town or tour the island and enjoy the beach and water on the east side for a great fun and a relaxing day trip. Swim with the dolphins..the stingrays..whale sharks and sea turtles or curl up with a good book on the beach or next to the pool. You are in for a great vacation!!!

Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your condo. We stayed for eight days and didn't want to leave. Everything about our trip was absolutely perfect. Condo was great and we were lucky enough to be some of the first renters to take advantage of the new boat. We actually went out three days in a row (scuba diving and deep sea fishing) with Miguel and the guys. The boat is beautiful and the crew were fantastic. It was so much fun!!! We are already planning our next trip and can't image staying anywhere else. Thanks again.

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ed and Laurie for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Your condo is wonderful and had all that was needed for a great vacation. As the previous reviewer said, the reviews are true, so no need to babble on.

We got together with friends who were staying with a friend that has lived there for 8 years; he graciously acted as our tour guide taking us for a tour of the east side, to several great restaurants, and arranged a snorkelling tour with Albatross tours for us, which was awesome!

We used taxis when needed....just walked to the front and the very nice employees at the gate always got us one very quickly.

I would highly recommend the Residencias Reef and this condo!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 18 days, one week by ourselves and one week with friends. We had a great time and everything was wonderful. All the reviews are true so there is no need to babble on. Miguel got us to rent beach bum bikes and go to Punta Sur with a private guide, Edgar. We had so much fun, Edgar took us snorkeling to the best place by far to snorkel in Cozumel. When you get tired of pedaling you just turn on the electric part and zoom away. We met so many nice people while staying there. Karla cooked our fish we caught and she is an excellent cook. Thank you to Miguel and Karla for making our stay enjoyable.

For someone who used to live on Cozumel, I'll never stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I know Cozumel. Having lived there for over 3 years I know exactly where I want to be when I visit ----> Near the reef! This complex is amazing. Well kept, quiet, safe, clean, and a stones throw from the best diving on the island and all the South dive spots. It's just far enough away from town too, and I don't have to look at any God-forsaken cruise ships on my vacation (the bane of my existence as a diver).

The unit itself is amazing. It has everything you need: big kitchen, large bedrooms and bathrooms (the pics just don't do it justice in my opinion). It's a LOT larger than it looks. And the couch is super comfy after some great diving, swimming, and eating. We shop at Mega, as it has the freshest food and widest variety. Also, we go out to eat a few times only: Guido's (the original in the North of the island), El Moro (which actually isn't as cheap as it used to be, but locals can get you there for a very informal meal), and sometimes we order a pizza like at home. Actually, this time I got a pizza made for me at the supermarket Mega, and it was better than any delivery I've had.

The best part is that my friend, and dive operator (Buena Ventura Diving was able to pick us up right on the pier! We didn't have to drive to Caleta Marina (which wouldn't have been far anyways) and waste precious morning time. Because of the location of the property being at KM 14, it only took a bit over 5 minutes to reach the Southern reefs by boat! As compared with a 30 minute boat ride from the North. That's more efficient in my book, as I have kids that don't dive and precious time away from them is kept at a minimum. Very convenient!

We had an issue with the air conditioner (leaking) and it was promptly fixed. I loved that we had a washer dryer in the unit as well. Couldn't figure out how to use the VOIP phone, but no worry since there was wifi, and we all connected our devices to that. Keep in mind though, it is an island, so internet is spotty at times. Just one of those things. Not like I wanted to be on the internet all the time, it was mostly in the evenings when I wanted to upload my underwater footage of my dives that morning!

Top notch is the private pool on the patio. And the patio furniture (wood, very nice through out the complex too). When you wanted to get out of the sun, but the kids wanted to swim, we were on our shaded private patio. Priceless.

So basically, I will stay here again.

Surpassed all expectations

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Cozumel many times and R Reef twice now. Ed is a great host. The unit far surpassed comfort. The warm pool on the balcony was a feature i didnt realize would be as important as it was. The rooms were large, kitchen well stocked. I really appreciate that key items werent thrown away after each guest left. Having some basic condiments were so appreciated. Miguel stocked the fridge with some items from Mega (large grocery store) prior to our arrival. Being able to walk off the unit from your own balcony to the beach or pools was a huge plus.

Reyna - she cooked Lobster dinner for us...omw! She far surpassed our expectations. Please tip her well, she deserves it. Incredible dinner. Next time i will have her cook more often.

Miguel - everything we needed he gave us advice or provided the service directly.

Karla - hosekeeper, incredbile, if youad a condo and needed a resource then it is her! Amazing

Res reef- a very calm resort, so romantic at dusk. I loved hearing the birds in the morning.
