About Dave Jenkins

I first came to Cozumel to escape the winter in Canada, play in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and do some diving, as I had heard that the diving here was spectacular. The second year that I came here to vacation, I purchased the condo because I had fallen in love with the people, the weather and the ocean. I met my wife Lupita here, and we have two children Kyle and Dominique Jenkins. We live here on the island full time. Lupita has been on the island for more than 15 years and so she knows pretty much where to find everything, and we will be available to help with any problems that are encountered, or to help with setting you up with activities or recommending a good restaurant.

Dave Jenkins purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dave Jenkins chose Cozumel

We purchased the condo at Residencias

Reef because it is in our opinion the best condos on the island in the best location. Located on beautiful Paradise beach, serene, crystal clear warm caribbean waters and get picked up in front of the condos for a 10 minute boat ride to some of the best diving in the world.

What makes this condo unique

The condos are a gated community with 24 hour security. Four three story buildings, on a beautifully landscaped property with an exceptional beach. The island is the safest place in Mexico, and the Mexican presidents use the island as a vaction getaway.

Residencias Reef is Cozumels premier low rise Condominium development located on beautiful Paradise beach on the leeward side of Cozumel Island. The resort is in a serene setting outside of the main town of San Miguel, and provides access to some of the best scuba diving in the world at world famous Palancar Reef. Dive operators will pick you up at the dock right in front of the condos, and Palancar is a short 10 minute boat ride to the South. There is good snorkeling right in front of the condos, and you can beach comb for many miles down the pristine white sand beaches. Most of the beach clubs that exist on the island are directly South of the condos, which is testament to the beauty of the area. You can access all of these beach clubs by simply strolling down the beach along the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.

8270 beautifully appointed and an excellent value, 5 stars!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been diving in Cozumel for over 10 years, stayed at about 8 different places and this was by far our most relaxing and enjoyable stay! Dave and Lupita have thought of everything when appointing their "Fall in Love Condo" and we already want to book our next stay.

I am a chef and conservation scuba diver and I was pleased to find everything and more in the gorgeous kitchen: full sized, new appliances, sharp santoku knives, a good blender for green smoothies, even tupperware.

The tasteful decor, warm colored tones and ocean themed local art made us feel instantly at home, calm and happy. The unit is so well designed and A/C so efficient that we could adjust it to the warmest setting (30° C) and only run it for a few hours a day and it would be comfortable for the remaining time. Access to the rooftop solarium allowed for private yoga in the early morning and sunbathing, although the two clean pools were never crowded.

The balcony for 8270 offered a nice view of pool and ocean, perfect for coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon without feeling hot, as it's shaded until 2:30. Also, I'd feel comfortable for storm season there. There was one brief bout of unseasonably rough weather, and while others were battening down the hatches in the 5000-6000 buildings, we watched the storm comfortably from our balcony because it's nicely protected.

We were pleased to find many thoughtful touches, like thick, soft beach towels, many sizes of coolers, snorkel gear, pool toys, and even chairs for a beach trip.

We always dive with Papa Hogs and pick up at the Residencias/ Secrets dock greatly reduced boat time to our favorite reefs in the south, Palancar and Columbia. The drive into El Centro is about 12 km, so it's very convenient to rent a car from Rentadora Isis upon arrival. For just 35 bucks a day we got a VW-Gol with taxes and insurance included. With a car or scooter it's a quick trip for favorite eats like Relleños at La Choza, Pastores at Los Seras, Empeñadas at Del Sur and the new Italian place opposite Villablanca, 'That's Amore', has excellent seafood and best ever Tiramisu.

Chedraui and Mega have anything you'd want to cook, though Dave and Lupita have graciously provided plenty of staples to get on with including coffee, sugar, a few spices, a few beers and sodas and plenty of drinking water in a lovely decanter.

If you're searching for the perfect vacation in Cozumel that checks off all of the boxes, LOOK NO FURTHER!!

Fabulous first stay in Cozumel...we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our wonderful week long stay at Dave and Lupita's condo at Residencies Reef. I don't think we could have found a more perfect place to stay. The complex is beautiful, well maintained, and has a lovely beach. There were plenty of palapas and palm trees for shade and there was hardly anyone on the beach. The entry to the ocean is a bit rocky so I would often just walk north on the beach a bit to swim.The pool was also a great place to spend the day. The condo had a great view, comfortable furnishings, and a well equipped kitchen. We did our grocery shopping in town and had most breakfasts and lunch at the condo. Dave let us rent his new car for a very fair price and having the car really added to the enjoyment of our vacation. We explored the East Side, Punta Sur, and visited the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio. Dave's onsite manager, Miguel, was there to greet us and show us around the condo and the car. Dave was always prompt with answers to all my questions. All in all a great stay. Thanks Dave and Lupita!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. The condo is just like pictures shows. The communication with the owner and manager was first rate. This was our fourth stay on the island, each at a different place, but no longer. We will stay in this condo every year.

Clean, safe property with lovely amenities, such as the pools

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant stay at this lovely property. Dave and Miguel made us feel welcome on arrival. The condo was spotlessly clean, and well stocked with basics such as spices, cooking oil, coffee etc. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning was perfect.

One of the nicer condos in the complex

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at a number of condo's at Residential Reef. Unlike other condo units that are obviously set up for short term rentals, this second floor unit is nicely furnished, tastefully decorated, and is equipped with all the appliances needed (washer/dryer, microwave, coffee maker, oven/stove top, fridge, dish cable, curved screen TV, etc) for a relaxing stay. Very pleased with the accommodations. Only improvements would be that the shower water pressure isn't as strong as other units I have stayed at and the AC unit in the bedroom didn't cool as well as the AC unit in the living room area. These issues are minor and we would definitely return to this condo unit.
