About Mark & Lynn Kay
Mark and I work in the human services field in La Crosse, Wisconsin. I am a diver and Mark is a Divemaster with over 500 dives. We have been to many different countries on dive trips but we kept coming back to Cozumel over and over. Cozumel has a charm that we have not found anywhere else. We have been coming here since 1997. We are both very pleased that we chose Casa Caribe Azul as our second home. Mark & Lynn Kay
Mark & Lynn Kay purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Mark & Lynn Kay chose Colonia Andres
After many trips to Cozumel, Lynn and I were working on building our retirement home on the South end of the Island near the Reef club. The land that we thought we were buying was sold out from under us. It must have been 'meant to be' because I noticed a new condominium going up right next door to the place (Plaza Las Glorious) Lynn and I loved so much because of its location. I found out from the developer that it was going to be built to the highest standards and would be the only 5 star on the Island. We made the right choice and are planning on retiring in Cozumel.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the best location in Cozumel. Close to town yet worlds away. We can walk to everything and not worry about a car or taxi. To wake up every morning and look out over the Ocean is wonderful.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Perfect location and beautiful view!
Our accommodations were great and everything was as advertised. Loved watching the sunset each evening from our balcony. Would definitely stay here again!
A Perfect Choice
I started planning our trip months before we took it. I read a lot of reviews which helped me to chose this condo, so I wanted to weigh in to help others. We were thrilled with our choice. After staying in all-inclusive hotels, this was a breath of fresh air! Very tranquil and relaxing. From our back door, it was just a few steps to the pool and as my husband mentioned, he could throw a rock into the ocean from our condo. Laurie sent us a lot of information prior to our arrival which was very helpful. The staff was nice and we felt safe at all times. As mentioned by others, the location is near town and we walked everywhere. For diving, we used Xt-sea dive and they were GREAT, they picked us up each morning right in front. The condo was inviting and roomy and it was nice to have cleaning service every other day. Bottom line, you will be pleased if you book this condo.
Beautiful decor, clean, great location (easy walking distance to town & groceries) clean great ameni
Awesome! Great host/hostess!!.. great location and amenities and very clean
amazing family trip
8 nights in paradise. Yes, walking distance, no car rental needed. Great pool! 1st floor made VERY easy access while at pool, not like others on the 7th floor. We recommend this place completely! Great family vacation spot...easy access diving. Ask owner for recommendations for activities, she gives great suggestions.
Thank you for the nice review
So glad you had a nice time. Hard not to when you can look out at the beautiful water everyday. Lynn
Excellent in every way
We had a great stay at the el cantil and the convenience to town was perfect. We walked everywhere.
It's a very nice rental in a convenient location.
What we liked. We like the lay out and the access to the pool area. The master bed was very comfortable. We like there are real dishes and glasses (not plastic). It’s also nice to have purified water we can drink and with which we can cook. We also like having a washer and dryer, even if we only used it twice. The location is also perfect, since two large supermarkets are within walking distance and there is even a small reef right off the pool area - good for snorkeling.
What we don't like. The neighbors smoke practically constantly from before sunrise to late into the night, so we cannot sit out. This is the third year we rented in that building, and they do the same thing every year. Someone in management told us it is a no smoking building including balconies and pool area, but also said they cannot ask owners not to smoke; indeed this owner also provides an ashtray for the balcony area.
Other notes. The WIFI isn’t terribly fast but is at least faster than what we had last year in another unit. We aren’t used to and don’t require maid service, so it seems a bit odd to us. We feel we have to clean up in case she shows up, so that part isn’t too relaxing. Finally, we didn’t find any “beach towels” to use by the pool. That would have been nice (and were provided in other units we have rented in the building).
Over the past five years the number of condos available in Cozumel have exploded. I can see how difficult it could be for the first time visitor to Cozumel to find the best experience available. As an owner and long time visitor, I offer the following suggestions on what to look for:
PROXIMITY TO THE OCEAN
Is the property right on the Ocean?
Don’t compromise. Whether it be crossing a busy boulevard or a enduring an elevator ride it is not necessary. We are located right on the Ocean. Step off the terrace, and you are at the beautiful tri level pool and beach.
How far is it to town and grocery stores? You get dropped off at the condo and you have no groceries and refreshments. Now What?
San Miguel is where most of the excellent restaurants are located. San Miguel is also where all the action is. Shopping and Sunday night town gatherings are just a few of the activities that you do not want to miss. We are any easy walk to town.
Other Activities: Swim with the Dolphins, glass bottom boats, sunset party cruises
