Very convenient to diving, shopping, and dining while providing all the tranquility one could desire. Can't think of a better place to stay for one or more divers. A place to rinse and dry gear, wash clothes, take a dip in the pool or just get a bit more sun, Casa Martillo has everything I could wish without all the commotion. Already planning to return in 2018.
We've been coming to Cozumel for years & this is our favorite place to stay when there. It is located in a very safe neighborhood, just a few blocks from the water & near 2 big supermarkets. The property is well maintained with a terrific staff. There's a pool, BBQ under a covered palapa. The units each have a full kitchen, AC, WiFi & comfortable beds. It is so much nicer than staying at a hotel. It has all the comforts of home. I highly recommend it.
Cozy little apartment, with a nice pool and common area.
All the amenities that you would need, a very nice bathroom and ok equipped kitchen. Close to both plazas, local (non tourist) restaurants and the grocery stores. It seemed very safe. Nice breezes meant no need for AC.
Wifi was good, but could be better if you are dependent on it for work.
Nice spacious condo....laundry facilities a plus. No water on one day but because of pump, which was replaced. Towels not replaced maybe more communication was necessary to get that corrected. We would stay again!
This was our third stay at Casa Martillo and hope you will consider it for your next trip to Cozumel. Of course, there are always all-inclusive options on the island, and we have also stayed at 3 (Allegro, Sabor when it was the Reef Club, and Iberostar), but here's what we like about Casa Martillo.
The 2-bedroom has everything we need. It's not fancy and pretentious, just neat and clean. We were a group of 5 adults and a 14-month old and from the reservation to the checkout, everything was as promised. Location is perfect! You are close enough to downtown that whether you want to dive with Dive with Martín (see my review) or you want to eat at Parilla Missión (best and cheapest of the 3 Missión restaurants, where locals go), a taxi will run $3-$7 each way. There were several evenings when we chose to walk home after a wonderful supper and do some window shopping, too. At the all-inclusives, you can always find something to eat, but dinners especially, are always just okay. Being close to town, we could go to many of the excellent restaurants and not spend $20 each way on a taxi to go out to supper. Also, the newer Mega grocery store a few blocks away has an outstanding selection of food at reasonable prices, so breakfasts and lunches were a snap, and I don't mind making myself a sandwich to save money.
The pool was always sparkling clean and I never miss having to fight for a chaise or have to listen to the hospitality crew noise dancing around the pool at the all-inclusives; Casa Martillo is quiet and relaxing! the housekeeping staff was friendly and saw to our every need.
Our daily schedule was dive in the moring, relax all afternoon next to the pool, go out to a great restaurant in the evening. If this sounds like what you like to do on vacation, Casa Martillo is the perfect, economical choice. Paddi Davies, reservation manager, made sure our vacation was perfect, handling last minute requests with ease. Try Casa Martillo for your next dive vacation!
