This beautiful condo at Palmar is owner managed by Matt and Elizabeth Williamson. We are Americans living in Cozumel full time and reside at Palmar. We are a small management company and pride ourselves on attention to detail.

Matt & Elizabeth WIlliamson/CozumelME purchased this condo in 2012

Why Matt & Elizabeth WIlliamson/CozumelME chose Quintana Roo

We love Cozumel, and Palmar is a first class building, centrally located on the Island. Cozumel is a safe and beautiful place with so many things to do. It is a tropical paradise.

What makes this condo unique

The view of the ocean is unobstructed, you will enjoy your morning coffee watching the incoming cruise ships arrive, and then in the evening enjoy a gorgeous sunset as they depart the Island. There is shopping, fine dining and awesome water sports all near by. The building offers an amazing 3 level pool and tennis court.

Beyond anything we could have expected!

  • 5 of 5

First let me state that we have been visiting Cozumel for about 15 years, and over the course of time graduated from a high end hotel to a rented condo the past six years or so. We have always been happy. This was a change of venue and our first time renting Elizabeth and Matt's place at Palmar. This time we not happy- we were ecstatic!

Rather than ramble on- here is what we loved (loved, loved, loved)

The place is BEAUTIFUL. The layout, the lofted bedroom, his and hers bathrooms (guess who claimed the ensuite?) Yup.

Furnishings were lovely, patio was huge with a gorgeous view of the pool area and ocean. We had our own Weber grill, we never used it, but we could have.

Laundry room with nicer washer/dryer than my unit at home.

Everything was immaculate. I mean IMMACULATE.

Most of all, the owners thought of everything we might need and made sure it was there. Lots of quality towels and linens, a fully stocked kitchen with not only the essentials, but a welcome basket of snacks and a bottle of wine. Every thing you could imagine from sunblock, to insect repellent, laundry detergent, hairspray, first aid, oh- I could go on but it would take forever. These folks love their guests and it shows in every little detail. The property is safe, well maintained, and every single person we came in contact from security to the landscapers were absolutely lovely people who seemed happy we were there.

There was cable and phone service, a dvd player, board games, books, floaties for the pool, a cooler for the beach.

Okay, I'm rambling. My only regrets are that

a.) it took this long to find this place, I would have never compromised elsewhere

b.) we are so grateful but reluctant to leave a review because we can't imagine coming to Cozumel and staying anywhere else. I don't want to share it with the world!

Thank you Elizabeth and Matt. I'll be emailing you shortly for two consecutive weeks next year assuming you were as happy with us as we were with you!

Best,

Susan and John

Sleek beautiful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo from the second we opened to door to the panoramic ocean view. The decor is pretty and modern. The kitchen and bath are well stocked. We had everything we needed to prepare meals and we were within easy walking distance to a variety of good restaurants. The phones for local and US calls were an unexpected treat.

We met Elizabeth and Matt and their dogs our first day in the condo. When there was a problem with the building's water supply, they took care of everything, even flushing the toilet!

We will definitely enjoy this condo during our next visit to Cozumel.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Cozumel and we loved the condo! It has a great view, was very peaceful, clean and roomy, and in a great location - not right in the middle of the noisy downtown but also not so secluded that we were too far from anything. The view from the porch was fabulous! We loved that it had two bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, a large, open kitchen/living area, and a washer and dryer. We felt right at home immediately and Elizabeth & Matt were so friendly and super responsive the couple of times we had questions. Both Cozumel and the condo were beautiful and very relaxing and just what we were looking for. Cozumel is our new favorite beach destination and we plan to stay in this exact condo unit again when we come back.

First Trip to Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

This property looked great on its listing - we were NOT disappointed! Our first time in Cozumel, we booked a 3-week visit. The condo was very comfortable, nicely decorated and VERY clean; it was well laid out (having 2 full bathrooms was really nice, especially when my sister joined us for 6 days); it was supplied with everything we could need (loved having a dishwasher as well as a laundry in the unit); and the swimming pool with shade pergolas was very restful and convenient (just one floor down). The location was also good: not too far from downtown when we wanted to wander through the museum & the shops or go to restaurants that were not within walking distance (Guido's and La Mission were the BEST!) but far enough away from downtown that we had some less busy space. The close-by view of the southern cruise ship pier was nice - amazing to see the size of the ships and there sure are lots of them to see, 6 days a week! Elizabeth was a terrific host and very responsive when we had questions or needed some assistance, including advice on the best medical facility to use when I needed some help.

We found the people of Cozumel to be very friendly, food in grocery stores and at restaurants was quite reasonably priced and the island itself was nice to explore (generally calmer waters on the west coast, lots of big waves & minimal development on the east coast). If you want to explore just the west coast, walking and using taxis will suffice. The Mega grocery store via taxi is terrific for anything you need, as well as the convenience store right at the condo. But to explore the whole island, you'll need to rent a car for a couple of days.

My favorite tourist activity, besides the museum, was an entertaining, guided horseback ride at Rancho Buenavista through the ranch's acreage with actual and replica Mayan ruins as well as caves.

Our only disappointment was the snorkelling, which is the primary activity that we seek on a Caribbean island. Shore snorkelling mostly had only dead coral, rocks & limited fish, primarily a result of Hurricane Wilma in 2006. We went out once on a boat but that particular day was windy and there was too much sand in the water for us to even go to the off-shore reefs. So we have to rate Cozumel as "not great" for snorkelling, especially from the shore, but for a beginner snorkeler it could be fine.

Overall, we loved the condo and the island, but less than happy with the snorkelling.

Owner's Response: Matt and I were so happy to host this lovely couple in our condo. It was our pleasure to have them stay in our condo and visit our very special Island of Cozumel. We love that they explored all the wonderful things about our Island home and hope they return again, soon. E & M

Very comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay on the island. The previous 3 were at different resorts. After our experience at this location, we will never return to a resort. The condo was impeccably clean and well furnished. We had a private pool and never had to worry about finding an empty pool chair. The cabanas were a very nice feature. We also didn’t have to deal with “over served” people wandering around the complex at 2 A.M. looking for their room. The freedom to choose where to eat was a benefit since there are some very good restaurants on the island. And if you just feel like putting together a Margarita and throwing some seafood on the grill, there is a well-stocked grocery store about a mile away. The owners were attentive and willing to help with any questions related to the unit or the island. This place is on the top of our list the next time we visit Cozumel.

More than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. A home away from home. The location of the property was perfect, the view of the pool and ocean was relaxing, property clean and staff was helpful. We had everything we needed in the condo. Having plenty of towels was nice, and having a washer/dryer in unit allowed for light packing. Owners were only an email or call away if needed. We enjoyed many of the restaurants within walking distance. Favorites were Ernesto's and Paprika. We hated leaving and would definitely return or recommend anyone to visit who truly wants a 5 star couples getaway.
