Had a great stay here. Were on ground floor with walkout to water's edge. Floor-to-ceiling windows. This is a small condo/hotel located immediately north past the end of the airport runway and president's house. There's no large "Condumel" sign but rather a large concrete swordfish/sailfish sign with words Condos/Apartments on it close to the entrance. Building exterior is a pretty mayan style. These condos are one of about 8-10 small places immediately north of the airport runway and south of the north marina. Staff were very helpful and very pleasant. The in-room groceries and booze were very nice to have and well priced. In our estimation, the snorkeling here was the best on the island compared with El Cozumeleno (about 1 km north...not bad snorkeling), Playa Palancar/Columbia (good snorkeling but only boat accessible and fish not close....in 10-25 feet of water) , Punta Sur (reef about 75-100m out and nice but limited fish variety), and Money Bar (unusually very strong current when we were there and mainly artificial reef balls). Condumel (and south along the shore to president's house, and north past other units to marina) has very good snorkeling with large variety (e.g. French & Queen Angels, cuttlefish, lionfish, some corals and sponges, eels, octopus, urchins, etc.). The snorkeling is all along the wall of the shoreline in 8-12 feet of water; the substrate going offshore is mainly sand and eelgrass with relatively few fish. I would STRONGLY recommend this or one of the other condos right next to Condumel to snorkelers. It's an easy 5-10 minute walk to edge of town. Not enough airplanes landing or that close so as to bother us. There is no restaurant at the condo or in the immediate vicinity. Units have cooking facilities and is a charcoal BBQ for use outside. There is not a sand beach here; you are on a limestone/coral reef although some sand has been spread around in front of the unit to create a small beach-like atmosphere. To enter the water you jump in off steps and use a ladder to get out. Paper cannot be put into toilet but rather into wastepaper basket...in case you a prude or high maintenance type. There is no swimming pool here.
