El Cantil Condo Resort

This is my 4th year staying in 7 J Norte, a 4 bedroom with magnificent views. Spacious, about 3000 sqft. Best location, between two supermarkets and a short walk to downtown. Dive shops pick up at the Condo dock and lockers to store dive gear. We are already booked for next year. Restaraunt Prima upstairs is a bonus!

Room Tip: 2 towers to choose from, study the website and ask questions to figure out the best fit for your nee...

I've been coming to Cozumel for 30 years, and the El Cantil condominiums are SO much better than any hotel. (We always stay in unit 6C in El Cantil Sur.) Spacious, well appointed, free wi-fi, TV, free long distance phone service to the U.S., fully equipped kitchen, 4 bedrooms (2 with king beds, 1 with two queens, 1 with 2 double beds), 4 full bathrooms (one for each bedroom), hot tub on the balcony which overlooks the ocean, maid service, and more. The condominium complex has a pool, underground parking and a dock where dive and fishing boats can pick you up for your daily activities. The complex is within easy walking distance of downtown, and there are 2 large supermarkets very close by. This is about as good as it gets on Cozumel!

Room Tip: Choose unit 6C in El Cantil Sur.

There are so, so many great things going for this place its jard to even start.From the front desk staff.who double as a concierge to the bus boys to the cleaning staff they are all super friendly, eager to help and appreciative of a hard earned dollar. Stayed in the penthouse for the week of carnival and couldnt be more pleased. The rooms and fernishings were immaculate and well kept. The view is bar none AMAZING. Full service kitchen with a superstore across the street. Everything you need is within walking distance. Private parking for free if you choose to rent a car, or in our case a jeep. The penthouse is high enough that you dont hear any road noise and big enough for four adult couples. El cantil is amazing especially for cozumel. A dock just outside for the fisherman and snorkelers. The only drawback is theirs no beach but on this side of the island there are no beaches really. They make up for it marvelously with the man made beaches at the pool where when at ground level disappears seamlessly into the ocean. I honestly wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in cozumel. They offer free breakfast on the rooftop resturaunt which is nice. The only drawback was the resturaunt. They really want to be a resturaunt bar with class the only problem is that its really sub par at best. Not many people go to mexico for italian and thats what they want to be. High end italian, only not. I wouldnt pay to eat there but the free breakfast was a nice touch. Highly, highly recommend el cantil to anyone visiting the island for relaxation. All that and a private elevator to boot!

We stayed in the Studio Azul 7B-N. We had a king size bed and two terraces. One terrace overlooked the street, and the other was on the side of the building (between the north and south towers). You can see the ocean from the side terrace, but it does not face the ocean. The room is basically a like a hotel room, but it has a large closet, large updated bathroom with shower only, microwave, coffee pot, refrigerator, blow dryer, and free wirelss Internet. Since we booked online, we got a free sit down breakfast every morning at Prima. There were several choices like French toast, pancakes, omletetes, huevos rancheros, and two eggs with home fries. We tried almost every meal, and they were all great. The condo also has a beautiful pool area which is never crowded. You can also order food from Prima at the pool. There is a call box to use, and the waiter comes down to take your order. You can rent snorkel gear from the office for $6. We saw some really neat fish snorkeling in front of the condos. The staff is very helpful. One day during a dune buggy excursion, my hat blew off my head right as we passed El Cantil. Since we were in the middle of a tour we couldn't turn around to go get it. Somehow, Abraham ( the doorman) saw it happen and rescued my hat. I could't believe it when he had it when we got back to the condos later that day. The location of the condos cannot be beat, especially if you like to walk into town for dinner which we did every evening. It is also really close to Mega which is great for picking up groceries which we often did on our walk back from dinner each evening. This is a great place to stay! One warning, the birds in the trees outside can be very loud in the morning- bring ear plugs!

We stayed in Casa Phoenix at El Cantil, a four bedroom, four bath luxury condominium. Beautiful view, location is central to the town, dining and shopping. The staff is fantastic. Breakfasts are included in the fee. Wonderful place to stay.

We recently stayed at El Cantil for 8 days with 5 other couples. We had a GREAT time! I have never had such a relaxing vacation. Wished we could stay longer!!!

We were close enough to walk to downtown, but the staff were always there to hail a cab if we needed one. The housekeepers were wonderful. The kitchens were a nice plus so we could cook if we wanted to stay in, very easy to cook in.

The condos were great! Each bedroom had their own full bathroom!! We also enjoyed the two hot tubs on our private verandas. The infinity pool was relaxing and refreshing! We also snorkeled from the dock that was a few feet from the pool. Most days the water was calm enough for our dive master to pick us up at the private dock at the condo.

We will definitely stay here again!! We loved the El Cantil!!

This was a great location walking distance to downtown and had a convenient and reasonable restaurant located on the property. Cabs were easily accessible to other destinations on the island.

Our condo 4AS has 4 bedroom suites as well as an additional power room. The wide lanai was spacious with a private hot tub that we used several times. The open floor plan has lots of upscale detail such as granite countertops. The condo was furnished in beautiful Mexican decor and artwork.

The infinity pool to the ocean was fun with ample beach chairs and tables. Poolside service was available from the onsite restaurant. The concierge at property assisted us with bookings and excusions. All the staff was friendly and helpful.

Definitely a super place for a family group.
