“A small piece of paradise”
Reviewed August 12, 2006

We stayed at the Islamar Villas from July 26, 2006 to August 9, 2006. This place was wonderful. The best feature is the small pool that is perfect for cooling off in after returning from a hot day shopping, at the beach, or diving. We truly felt at home here. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Zuri did an excellent job of keeping the place tidy for us and Jackie was very helpful with any questions we had. I would highly recommend staying here. The only thing to consider is that it is a good 20 minute walk to the waterfront, but in some ways that is what makes this place unique. It is in the middle of a local neighborhood. The only down side was the barking dogs in the neighborhood at night. In the two weeks that we stayed here, there were a couple of nights that I had trouble sleeping because of the barking. However I would highly recommend staying here. It was an excellent experience and a great value for your money. We look forward to returning in the future.

IslaMar is a great place to stay and we could not have made a better choice in accomodation. Clean, tidy and all the amenities you’ll ever need. Away from the hustle and bustle and surrounded by great local restaurants. The pricing makes these condos even more attractive then what they already are. Would we go back there? Let’s put it this way, Sherrie and Jacqueline had a hard time getting us OUT of the place when it was time to leave. Would we recommend IslaMar? That’s a silly question, of course!

Sherrie and Jacqueline are the true stars when it comes to being hostesses. They were always friendly, helpful and there to answers our questions. Ask either of them where to enjoy local cuisine, you'll get the best value for money and great food.

We used Dive Paradise as dive operators and could not have made a better choice. Once again, friendly people with great diving skills. We would dive with them again. Gear was in good shape and the tanks always full. Loved the idea of divers choice dive spots.

Best kept secret in Cozumel ~ Wife and I finally agree on something!
Just returned from Coz where we stayed with Sherri at her IslaMar Villas for 2 weeks. Villas are spacious, immaculately clean and the staff friendly. Sherri helped us plan our activities and pointed us toward things to do and places to go that regular tourist wouldn't necessarily find. The extra touches and personal service made us feel right at home ~ can't wait to go back!

My daughter and I stayed at the IslaMar Villas in July 2003. We had a one bedroom/one bath and we loved it. It was extremely clean and roomy. There was a TV with local cable which has some English channels, a VCR, a double burner stove top, microwave, fridge plus everything you need for cooking and eating. There was an AC as well. The "compound" is surrounded by a wall and a secured front gate. There are 5 total units so you don't have to worry about big crowds. There was a nice pool and whirlpool, dive gear storage, rinse tank and a beautiful garden. It was like a home away from home. Around the corner was a convenice store and it's close enough to walk to town. I never felt in danger. All in all it was a great experience. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something different from the standard "tourist trap".

I recently returned from the best vacation of my life. I stayed at the IslaMar Vacation Villas. They are centrally located to Town and the beach... very spacious... clean and all the ammenities one needs to spend a week or a month.... I dove with Dive Paradise.. Wow..what an operation. They picked us up, not far from the IslaMar Vacation Villas, at the Baracuda hotel..and left from their dock... Had the best diving. Say 3 turtles on one dive. Also saw a nurse shark swimming... WOW. I saw so many species.. on this week of diving... that I have already reserved another trip this coming winter.... Thanks to the Villas and Dive Paradise for making this a trip that will never be forgotten... Jim Piere

I'm picky about where I vacation, but I keep going back to IslaMar because we have a consistently good experience there. Suites are clean, modern, and stocked with all the things you need plus the extras (like good books). American owner lives on the island and is exceptionally customer service oriented. She doesn't cut corners. Great place for divers, with equipment lockers and rinse tank. If you don't like the noise and lack of privacy of a big hotel, try this quiet getaway away from the tourist frenzy.
