Residencias Reef Condos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We had condo 7160 (first floor, building 3) for three weeks this November. It is a beautiful condo, lovingly maintained, and with all the amenities you'd need. The property manager Fulvio was great to deal with--communication was fast and clear, and I'm confident that he'd have dealt with any issues quickly if they'd arisen. The maid kept the place very clean and tidy, though it'd be nice if she had access to dishwasher detergent; she had to use dish soap in the dishwasher and we'd be greeted with a floor full of suds and no way to clean it up! LOL

The beach and grounds at the Reef are beautifully maintained. Always friendly guys wandering about gardening and looking after all the loungers and the pools. The security is great as well, with one staff member going above and beyond the call of duty on the day of the Ironman. :o)

The only downside I can think of is there's little for kids to do. We were traveling with children ages 11 and 13--while my daughter was content to swim and read on the beach, my son would have liked a basketball court or something.

Tip: you have access to the water toys (kayaks, Hobiecats) at Dive Palancar. If you're not going to have a car for your entire trip, do a HUGE grocery shop when you do have one, as there's nothing nearby if you run out of the essentials (unless tequila or rum is an essential. You can buy that at the Sabor ;o) and it's a $$$ cab ride to town and back.

We had wonderful two times in this condos! they are spacious and clean and well-equipped. Both times on ground floor, first time beach front location made it quick and easy to access both the pool and the beach. We traveled with my husbands parents and it was great for each of us to have a private bathroom. second time in building 3. still having seaview and direkt access to the pool. Fulvio our manager is very friendly and helpfull, as we needed something he brought it.

We had a wonderful week in this condo! It was spacious and clean and well-equipped. It's ground floor and beach front location made it quick and easy to access both the pool and the beach. We traveled with another couple and it was great for each of us to have a private bath. Our housekeeper, Elli, did a thorough job of cleaning and turned out to be an excellent cook as well! We hired her and her husband a couple of days to make us breakfast and dinner. We loved our time here and hope to return soon!

We just took our third trip to Cozumel in the last seven years and it just keeps getting better! Many thanks to the owners and property manager for an outstanding vacation home in a wonderful location. 5140 in the Residencias Reef was a beautiful condo and a great base to explore the island or just hang out for the day away from the crowds. We thoroughly enjoyed the food service and would highly recommend it for those looking for a break from eating out. Everything was delicious!
Gracias for taking such good care of us. We can’t wait to go back!

We enjoyed 8 nights at unit 7360 at Residencias Reef condos in Cozumel.
First the facilities:
- Nice common areas, and well maintained.
- Manned security gate.
- Plenty of parking near unit.
- Two pools were great.
- Two fresh-water showers near beachside pool was great for rinsing scuba gear.

Unit 7360:
- HUGE rooms. 4-bedroom unit, each with its own bathroom.
- Plenty of towels. Kitchen lacked some basics (only had 1 mildly sharp knife).
- Great view of grounds, pool and ocean beyond.
- Good size kitchen, and plenty of room at dining table.
- Could have used more comfy chairs in living room.
- Beds were quite hard.
- Massive wraparound deck. One ceiling fan on deck, other outlets are bare and have been removed.
- Massive rooftop deck with furniture. Very nice feature - but too hot for us to use.
- A nice dock at neighboring resort allowed us to access our dive boat every morning. VERY nice feature.

Simple complaint: while we were there, a hurricane warning was in place. There was no communication from rental agency nor condo facility that the warning was in place. Had we not been checking the internet, we would have never known.

Would we return to this particular unit? Maybe. It was priced right, and had a very good location.

Our July visit to Cozumel was fantastic! Unit 5140 sits right on the corner with the ocean just steps from the front deck and the pool just steps to the right. We walked up the beach for ceviche and margaritas, and walked to the hotel next door to book our island adventures. We snorkeled almost every day thanks to the snorkel gear, beach towels, and cooler provided by the owners. The manager, Fulvio, offered to come by the first day to share tips for enjoying our stay and then he called near the end of the week to see if everything was going well. He helped us arrange for meals cooked by Eli and Victor that were amazing.The housekeeping was discreet and immaculate, the beds/sheets/furniture very comfortable. I can't think of a more perfect spot for a vacation with the right mix of adventure and relaxation. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Room Tip: Ground floor with a view of the beach and just steps to the pool - can't be beat!

We had a wonderful time at 5140 Residencias Reef Condo. We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with friends, and the accomodations were perfect. Ground level, no walk at all to the beach and pool, and the view was amazing. The rooms were comfortable, the A/c kept the July heat very bearable, and it was a great place to relax. Highly recommend this condo!

Room Tip: 5140 is the best of the bunch.
