Residencias Reef Condos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We stayed at Residencias Reef Condos May 19 - June 1. During that period, we actually rented two different condos since our 1st choice was only available for a short period. Both condos were great with attentive owners, as well as managers. Each condo was stocked with everything we needed. No matter which condo you stay in, you are very close to the ocean. There are two heated pools which were never crowded. Unlike the all-inclusives we have stayed at in the past, there were always lounge chairs available on the beach. It is about a $20 cab each way to town so it is necessary to rent a car. We found that we enjoyed having the car and being able to explore the island each day. There are several beach clubs within walking distance and a pier for pickup if you are interested in diving and snorkeling. Secrets all-inclusive is next door and can get a little loud but we never heard anything inside our condo. In fact, for the most part, the music was very enjoyable. Also, there is free Wi-Fi, Direct TV, and Phone service to the US. We could sit on the beach and still have Wi-Fi unlike our last all-inclusive that had no Wi-Fi at all. If you want a quiet relaxing stay away from all the cruise ships, you will definitely enjoy staying here.

Room Tip: The condos in building one are closest to the beach. You literally step off your patio to the sand...

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay, during the last week of April. We have been to Mexico many times but not stayed on Cozumel. This was our first time not going all inclusive and a great way to experience all that Cozumel has to offer. Residencias Reef Condo is a great option. There are 4 buildings with 2 pools on the beachfront property. Our 1 bedroom condo (8240) was awesome. Fully furnished, and much more spacious and homelike than an All Inclusive hotel room. The owners of our condo we’re extremely helpful, prior to our stay. The property was very quiet and with a gated entrance, never had any safety concerns. RR is situated a quite a ways south of town, so renting a vehicle is suggested if you’re planning to do more than staying on the property. I found the water off the beach to be too cloudy for good snorkeling. Maybe just because it had been windy. We would definitely stay here again.

Until this trip we did only non-exclusives for our trips to Mexico. No longer! We will return to this quiet and perfect condo area. We stayed in building 4 which was literally a one minute walk to the beach. Although you have bigger resorts on both sides, we were not bothered by any noise from either side. The beach is private to the condos and the staff takes care that non-guests do not access the chairs and huts so you really do have it all to yourselves. There were several days when my husband and I were the only ones on the beach except for the occasional walker. We loved the ability to cook at the condo if we wanted but ended up hiring Fernando from Chef at Home Cozumel to cook our breakfasts and dinners throughout the week. Very reasonably price and he made our vacay something special! He is now like one of the family and we highly recommend not only him but Residencias Reef Condos. We have one request....don't book the week we return.....:-) Highly recommended.

Booked this spot on advice from a friend and was not disappointed. We stayed in building 4 and had a beautiful view of the grounds and the beach. Our condo (8350) was well appointed and the owners thought of everything. If you're adventurous you'll need to rent a car. Bring water shoes if you're planning on going in the ocean... there's low-lying coral that makes it hard to walk for about the first 10-15 feet from shore. We hope to get back there someday.

Escaping Minnesota's brutal winter with a week in Cozumel. We used to come to Mexico all the time, but have been scared away by the crime and very tired of all inclusives. We decided to try Cozumel as read that still very safe. We are very glad that we did! We discovered VRBO a few years ago and now are sold on condo rentals. Residencias Reef has been perfect. We stayed in unit 8310. It's very laid back and relaxing. The beach and pools have been Great. One thing to note is that everything shuts down on this part of the Island by 5:00. Also, anywhere you go the cab ride is $15 each way. We did rent a car for a day and drove over to the East side (wild side). It was beautiful!

This place has a great staff. We stayed in 6330 in building #2. It was a great place for families with young kids, since we really couldn't go out at night. We has plenty of space to enjoy ourselves on the premises. The grounds are very well maintained. The staff is considerate an helpful. The pools and beach are right there. Do consider a cooking service if you are not going to cook for yourself, since the area gets quiet when the sun goes down.

Just stayed 10 days in 8170 at Residencias Reef. The grounds are well kept and staff go out of their way to accommodate any need. 8170 is small but who plans to spend time in the room when amazing snorkeling, diving, and beach walking is just steps away? The pools are beautiful if you don't plan to spend time in the ocean. Please note that Carlos and Charlie's and a Secrets Resort frame these condos and they both provide loud entertainment. We both felt very safe and would highly recommend a stay. We rented a car for the week and loved the opportunity to go to the other side of the island for really quiet beaches.
