“Two Days in Paradise”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

From the time we arrived everything was wonderful. This is a beautiful boutique hotel that had four rooms, but a fifth room was being finished while we were there and is now available. Dan and Daniel were both very helpful with anything we needed.

It was very convenient to walk there from the airport. We really enjoyed the meals that Daniel made for us. What a treat to open your room door and have breakfast served.

We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We loved the king room!

This is my second visit to Casita de Maya and this was even better than the first! My husband (his first trip) and I spent 9 days at this boutique hotel and enjoyed every moment – from the comfortable room, to the gracious and hospitable staff, and of course the delightful dining, our stay was splendid!
Dan is certainly more than accommodating, we enjoyed the peace and quiet of the hotel’s ambiance as well as the excitement and adventure of experiencing what Cozumel has to offer. Dan directed us to amazing cuisine, snorkeling, touring the island, Tequila tasting, and even a forest of fire flies (not even a block from the hotel!), just to name a few. With a vast knowledge of the area, history, services and people – he helped us rent a car, organize snorkel tours, and direct us to an amazing array of food – with must visit restaurants – Casita de Maya’s own Daniel, La Perlita, Parrilla Mission, Diego’s Tacos, The Sunset Bar and Grill (on the beach) and El Morrow (a shout out for El Morrow’s Mango Ice Cream – simply divine) – all of which are within walking distance.
We took advantage of the convenience of the delicious meals Daniel provided and the gentle way he tried (very patiently) to teach Spanish! Not only are the rooms spacious and beautiful, they are kept amazingly clean and thoroughly stocked by Jolie. Trixie, the resident watch dog and her able assistant Chuck the cat, were there and willing to accept all affection offered, just to make us not miss our 4 legged children quite as much.
Included in the highlights of our stay - getting to know Dan and his staff as well as the other guests that were there during our stay, sitting on the sidewalk, watching the island life go by was simply magnificent and oh so breezy. The people of this island are warm, inviting and so inspiring.
My husband is already making plans for our next trip to this paradise! Until next time…….

My friend and I stayed here on our last night of vacation before our flight out the next morning so we could have a full day at the resort. We emailed Dan late in the evening from our resort letting him know we would be checking in late and he emailed right back. We arrived around 9:30pm where we were met by Dan and he showed us around. We stayed in the 2nd room on the right with the twin beds and they were very comfortable. I loved the feel of this hotel! We walked around the corner to a store and had the best pulled pork tacos with Habanero peppers before we walked to the airport for our flight.
Next time we will fly down a day early to stay here. It is across the street from the airport and easy to pull your luggage on the sidewalks. We'll see you next time Dan! Thanks for your hospitality!
I'll be sure to let my flight crew buddies know about your place.

Room Tip: All are quaint.

Dan has done a marvelous job of creating a comfortable atmosphere conveniently located to the airport. We walked next door for a rental car. We parked right outside on the street for free. We hopped in and drove completely around the island twice in two days, stopping for the beaches, the swimming and the views along the way. After our busy days, we walked five blocks to "La Perlita" for a very reasonably priced dinner. The best fresh fish we've had in a very long time! The proximity to the airport was NOT an issue and on our last day, we walked across the street, checked our bags early, came back to relax by the pool until it was time to leave. Thanks Dan and staff! We will be back.

After coming to Casita de Maya from a few days at an all-inclusive, my girlfriend and I felt like we were stepping into our relative’s house. With only a handful of rooms all leading out to the beautiful pool and courtyard, Casita de Maya is a hidden gem tucked away on a quiet residential street by the Cozumel airport. Dan was extremely helpful pointing us in the direction of all sorts of adventure, and the room was tastefully decorated with many unique features that gave us lots of ideas on what our dream Master bedroom could look like one day. I won’t go on for too long, as many others have posted on Trip Advisor discussing Casita de Maya, but in short, the high rating given to Casita de Maya is justified, staying at there is a absolute treat.

Wow....what can I say that has not already been said in the previous posts. Dan is for sure the consummate host and we felt as if we were visiting a friend not staying at an impersonal hotel. Dan was so helpful with all of his information he made our whole stay on Cozumel an amazing experience.
We too loved Daniel....we felt so special having him cook for us...and does he cook! His meals were just wonderful....delivered from his home on his motorbike and still hot! His service was above and beyond. And all at a reasonable price.
This little gem of a hotel is one of the nicest places we have stayed and we travel a lot....you won't go wrong to pick this boutique hotel to stay at the next time you are in Cozumel.

Neighborhood was safe and authentically Mexican, not touristy- we loved it. Great host and cook, there for our Every need. Clean, pretty rooms and small, pristine fresh water pool. A home away from home. More opportunity to really learn about the real Cozumel. Reasonable prices made our stay perfect.
