Family of 17 loved it!!! I also would recommend it for 7 couples! Chef Luis is a wonderful chef. All the staff are precious!
This place was amazing!! The pictures do not do it justice! We had 14 people on this family vacation of which 7 were teenagers and no one was ever bored...
The entire staff of Chris, Chef Luis, Martin and Santiago were fantastic. We are ready to book next years trip to Casa Gordon!!
There's a reason all of the review are 5 stars! Its unfortunate that only 1 or 2 guests out of a group of 20 actually take the time to share their experience. I vacationed with fellow reviewer eeka32 and commend her on a GREAT vacation find!
Family vacation of 18 with grandparents and 7 kids.
The property and staff were better than we could have dreamed! The house manager Chris was available every day to answer questions and make arrangements (taxi service, wave runner delivery, drink orders, etc.). The staff was incredible. The food, service, and cleanliness of the home was outstanding. Dressel divers out of the Iberostar resort is a 5 min walk (or they will pick up/drop off) and they offer fantastic diving & snorkeling. Sincerely hope to come back soon!
Our family rented this house with 2 other families. There were 20 people total in our party. It was an amazing experience! I cannot say enough about the staff, home and location. I would highly recommend using the staff for all the meals, as we did. Diving is of course amazing and we were picked up right on our beach. There is also a nice reef that can be kayaked out to from the home. The kayaks and paddle boards really add to the enjoyment of the home. I was worried about sharing a house with other families but because of the size and layout there was tons of privacy when you wanted it.
This villa was absolutely amazing! We traveled with friends, a group of 3 families (8 adults, 12 kids= 20 people). Some of the highlights were the privacy, amenities, and outdoor spaces. It's 25 minutes from downtown, so people walk by on the beach occasionally, but it's really secluded.
The covered deck where meals were served was breezy, shaded and spacious with plenty of seating. The pool was cleaned daily, and whole pool area had comfortable loungers and shaded cabana and hammocks as well. Also, liked the beachfront loungers on the sand and volleyball net/court. Large indoor space for playing games and cooling off, and in case of weather. We only ate indoors once during the whole trip!
The staff is really what took this vacation to the next level, though! They exceeded our expectations with prompt, delicious meals and cool centerpieces. Warm thanks to Luis, Martin, Santiago, Tony and crew! They were awesome with our kids, endlessly patient & learned all their names, even making them virgin pina coladas (huge hit! :). Rooms were well-cleaned daily, laundry service available too. Chris was extremely helpful with reservations for dinner and information about local activities while there. Patricia was precise, friendly and quick to respond as we planned in advance.
We ran every morning along the convenient, paved, island bike paths, scuba diving was easy and convenient as they picked up in front of the house (we waded out, Dive with Martin was fantastic!). We rented cars to access downtown Cozumel, etc. We especially loved the sea kayaks and paddle boards at the villa.
One thing to know in advance is that only 1 bedroom, the master has a full ocean view. With 4 couples, 3 were kind enough to take the pool view (had a partial ocean view) and garden views. Of course, spending so much time near the pool and ocean makes that less critical! All in all, this was perfect for large groups! Their website is accurate and has tons more info. No reservations about recommending this property!
