Well I put off writing the review because I wanted to make sure I didn't forget anything and I had so many great things to say about this place. Of course, now, 2 months later, I still don't think I can capture how amazing this place is in words. My boyfriend and I enjoyed Cozumel, but Ventanas al Mar is the only reason we plan to return.
Gary and Lupita were just wonderful. They were extremely pleasant to talk to and made us feel completely welcome. I feel as though they would go out of their way to accommodate their guests and try to be as helpful as they could for any questions or concerns one might have.
The hotel was very quiet, I think one night we were the only couple there. For me, this is part of the appeal...though I feel if more people knew about this gem, it would fill up nicely. The location is absolutely breathtaking. There is no ac, but we were never overly warm as the ocean breeze was enough to keep us cool at night. We did have internet access in the lobby, which was nice to keep in contact with our family back home. Breakfast each morning was so delicious and there was a nice variety on the menu. There is no fridge, but a cooler was provided and we could purchase bags of ice on site for just 20 pesos (same as you would pay in town). We went to the Mega on the other side of town and purchased enough to make sandwiches for lunch throughout the week, and went out to dinner most nights. We rented a cute lil bug from Isis, which was perfect for getting around. As others mentioned, the road is closed in the evening, but show your room key and you will be sent on your way without hassle.
It is not a 5 star luxurious hotel, but it is clean, well kept, and perfect for those who really just want to get away from it all.
