We contacted www.enjoycozumel.com to look for a rental on the island of Cozumel. There were many choices to select from. I sent an inquiry email and received a quick reply from Pawel Konczyk. We conversed via email until he found us a perfect 1 bedroom (king size bed,) 1 bathroom condo that had an ocean view and of the two pools too. It is located on the third floor in building 4 in the Residencias Reef complex. It is a gated community right on one of the best beaches in Cozumel, San Francisco beach. We rented the condo from June 12 – June 20, 2011.
We received the lockbox code prior to our arrival. Once we checked in at the main gate we headed to the unit and retrieved the key from the lockbox. We walked in and noticed that the unit had been freshly painted and updated from the pictures we had seen at the time of our booking. It was beautiful and spacious!!
This 3rd floor fully furnished unit has direct access to the beach and pools which made it a comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The unit was air conditioned and had ceiling fans in each room and on the balcony too. There was a fully-equipped kitchen that included all kitchen utensils, a blender, bottled/filtered drinking water, coffee maker, dining room table, dishwasher, microwave, oven, refrigerator/ freezer, stove and toaster. The living room with 2 sofas overlooked the pool area, beach and the ocean. There was a large tiled bathroom with double vanities and large walk in shower too. All towels and linens were provided. There was also a washer and dryer in the unit. This was a great feature.
The pool and beach area was a great place to hang out. There are beach chairs, loungers, and hammocks. There are 2 shared fresh water pools, a scuba rinse tank and an outdoor shower. There is a nice sitting area under a huge palapa with tables and chairs. There’s also a wet bar with a mini fridge to use. We would make drinks down by the pool. It was GREAT!! There is easy access to the beach where we witnessed breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Another fun spot to “chill” was on the rooftop solarium which also has a wet bar.
The entertainment in the condo was a bonus. There is cable TV with English-channel programming, a DVD player with movies, free calls to US/Canada (PRICELESS!) There is a large plasma/LCD TV, stereo/CD player with wireless speakers in each room. So bring your MP3 player and listen to music throughout the condo, including on the patio balcony. WiFi Internet was a bonus as well.
We felt very safe at this condo complex as this is a gated property with 24/7 security. There is an in-room safe for valuables. There is car parking on the property too.
Overall this was an INCREDIBLE vacation thanks to Pawel of www.enjoycozumel.com He took the time to find us the right rental to meet our needs and hooked us up with the right people. Alex, the guest manager, was truly efficient and he helped answer our questions about the island. We rented a cell phone from him just in case we needed to make local calls while traveling about the island or to make contact with the personal shopper/chef, Emily Egge Konczyk, of www.cozumelchef.com that we hired while vacationing. The maid also did an exceptional job. She even did our laundry. (GO MAID!!) And it was a pleasure meeting Margaret Konczyk as well.
THANK YOU for a FABULOUS vacation!!!!!
