Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This apartment, within walking distance to everything, met all of our needs. The friendly and knowledgeable owners were available promptly with even the smallest of needs, but more importantly, provided privacy for us to enjoy what we needed...solitude. The property was clean and well cared for. Residents in next door units were courteous, friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again, although might request that the bed be updated. All correspondence from beginning to end, was professional, courteous and smooth. We very much appreciated being able to stay here. It's popular, so book your reservations early.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the nice comments, Shelly! We were delighted to meet and have you here with us at Dodo's. We will certainly check and update the King Size bed. We hope to see you again here with us at Dodo Residential in the near future! Thank you! Sincerely Philippe & Delffi

Great choice for value "Base Camp" in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Compact apartment is designed for longer stays, but worked well for our visit of just a few days. Location is a 5-min walk from the main tourist zone and close to many restaurants, including the Mercado. AC in bedroom worked well. It's an older building with basic furnishings and is very clean and quiet (rooms face an inside courtyard, so are off the street). Best part of stay was owner (Philippe) was very gracious, and the fellow neighbors were an interesting and friendly conglomerate of snowbirds. We rented a car one day from ISIS which was just a few blocks away and had a great time and went to several beach clubs (enjoyed Paradise Beach Club as it has a great pool).

Note, this is intended as a small apartment community - it does not have the same amenities as a hotel.

Trois semaines au soleil

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour à Dodo. Philippe nous a acueilli et a répondu à toutes nos questions. La propriété est impeccable et Nellie est un atout majeur. Tout est à distance de marche, restos, quatre supermarchés, Lucilla, à deux pas, qui fait notre lessive. Dodo est un petit oasis dans un quartier très vivant et intéressant. On peut même prendre des cours d'espagnol à proximité.

Nice accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Philippe's apartments were a great choice for us... Right around the corner from where my daughter is living and out of the tourist district but only a few blocks walk if that is what you're looking for.

Dodo Apts has the flavor of the real Cozumel with lots of little cantinas nearby to walk to. Philippe was very accommodating and was quick to respond to any email I sent him. I would stay here again on return trips.

excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described. The garden is well cared for, I even saw a turtle one day.The unit was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was ideal, easy walk to main square close to local snacks and restaurants.It may be far to walk for someone with mobility issues. Hosts are very attentive.The owners provided us with secure parking for our scooter.Cozumel has a nice vibe. The dodo has a full kitchen,although we did not do much cooking it was nice to have breakfast before heading out for the day.Large size fridge for stocking up on cervezas.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Overall I had an amazing 5-week stay and I'll be back.

- The unit had kitchenware, furniture, internet and cable.

- Other residents were all very friendly and talkative.

- Philippe was very friendly and attentive to the property. If I emailed him a question he typically responded within an amazing 2 hours, and I notice he came by the grounds once a day to say "Hi" to the maintenance workers.

- As with the rest of Cozumel, the unit was very safe
