Our stay was perfect. The property was just as described. It was clean, comfortable and decorated perfectly for the location. It was in a great location close to town, yet not so close that we were affected by the busy cruise population. It was right on the ocean, just as described and we found the best snorkeling right off the edge of the property. We could not have asked for a better condo to stay in for our weeks vacation. The hosts are most helpful with all the information left in the condo including restaurants, car rental, money exchange, phone and internet usage and more. We can't say enough and we sure hope to make it back to stay here again

This is a wonderfully decorated and maintained “home away from home”. It is very obvious that Truett and Jill maintain this property for their personal use and it’s a real blessing that they make it available as a vacation rental. Truett and Jill have thought of everything and provided us with a wealth of information before we left on our trip. The unit is even equipped with a phone to make toll free calls to anywhere in the US. The location and setting of the condo is just about as good as it gets. The snorkeling out front is fantastic and the view of the water from the lounge chairs in the manmade beach area is simply gorgeous. I wish we would have spent more days hanging out at the condo rather than running around, trying to decide which beach club had the best snorkeling areas. I would certainly want to stay here again when I return to Cozumel

Best place I know of to just relax. Everything you need is right there. A few steps to a beautiful pool, a few more steps to a private beach, and then down the ladder to gorgeous snorkeling reefs. The unit has Wifi, internet phone, plenty of room, and daily housekeeping. You can walk to the north end of the island to explore or walk less than a mile south to San Miguel and eat cheap at one of the many great restaurants or shop. Taxis are everywhere and are convenient and easy. If you like quiet and low key this is the place. Rent a car and go see the Mayan ruins and the wild east coast with miles of open beaches.The islanders are friendly, family people. We felt safe day and night.

This is the second year we have come to Cantamar and we are hooked. The condo's are perfect with terrific ocean views, there is great snorkeling right off the dock and the mix of guests is very compatible. Unlike most of the hotels, where you get a heterogenous group of people looking for night life, families looking for value and older folks wanting to enjoy the quiet here you have the same mix of ages but with everyone enjoying the qualities that Cantamar offers. It's quiet, clean and nice. Oscar is a godsend and the neighbors could not have been nicer.

Room Tip: Ground floor is quiet and walkout to the pool. Second floor has great ocean views and is right off...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The owners were very helpful in ensuring the success of our holiday -- many thanks Jill and Truett! The condo is exactly as photographed - very clean, very quiet, and well maintained.There is a amazing view of the ocean and cruise ships from the balcony. The full kitchen is fully equipped. The king sized bed in the MBR is very comfortable. The condo is air conditioned but we preferred the natural cooling of the ocean breeze. We walked for kilometres north and south, day and night, and felt totally safe. Grocery shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. The snorkeling was excellent right in front of the condo -- we didn't feel the need to take a tour. Cozumel is a beautiful island--we can't wait to return!

I stayed in the condo for one week. By far, it was one of my very best vacations. Just visualize this; crystal clear ocean water, blue skies with no clouds, 80 degree plus temperatures, colorful sunsets every night, all of this right outside your own private patio plus a large fresh water pool and even a sandy beach area! The condo is incredible and the location is perfect. It is very clean and well equiped with towels, sheets, dishes, cutlery, bottled water and having a full-size washer and dryer was fabulous. The rooms are spacious and so comfortable. You can easily walk into town and there is even a small grocery store less than a 1/2 mile away. Taxis are plentiful, cheap and clean. Did I already tell you that the location is perfect? You do not need to rent a car although we did for one day to explore the east coast of Cozumel. The locals are extremely friendly and family orientated. We felt safe and secure at all times at the condo and in Cozumel. We had, absolutely no issues. We had such a great time snorkeling right off the "backyard" that we are going back in three weeks! I cannot wait to eat at Guidos and drink the margaritas at The Mission! I highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Cantamar 101 is on ground level.

Cantamar is ideally located...right on the ocean, 101 and 102 are walk-out to the pool, and quiet. It is 36 steps (I counted) from the back door to the ocean. There is no natural beach, but rather a lovely, "created" sandy beach area with two palapas, a large pergola, and a dock. Some days we had the whole "beach" area to ourselves. And once you drop into the warm ocean, you will find a reef with incredible fish, coral and sea life...literally around the dock. (Bring your own snorkel gear!)
If you like the big hotel or loud party scene, this place isn't for you. The rules at the pool require no audible music, which makes me happy, since I'm here for the quiet.
If you don't like to see the sunset or hear the waves lapping the shore, there are plenty of other places to stay.
I did encounter thimble jellyfish while snorkeling, so keep an eye out. (They leave a sting like a mosquito bite.)
Walking into town is no problem...15 minutes tops, and we found the Mega grocery store that met our food and drink needs. (Note: Retail liquor, beer, and wine are sold until 9:00 p.m. Mon-Sat and only until 3:00 p.m. on Sunday) A $5 taxi ride home from the grocery made for an easy trip.
Our unit (101) has a galley kitchen, new washer and dryer, great Sony TV and DVD player, Sony iPod dock, and free WiFi and internet telephone to the U.S. But honestly, we really focused on the ocean, the sand, and the incredible views.
We had housekeeping service every other day and Oscar, the building manager, kept everything in great shape.
I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: 101 is wonderful. This unit and 102 are walk-outs onto the pool deck. The entire facility is locked...
