We loved our visit to Casa Gonzales!
The Condo itself is very clean and comfortable. Being on the 3rd floor gave us an incredible view all day long. The upper floor rooftop was a great place to gather and gave us a little extra room to hang out and get some sun. We were traveling with our adult children. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us to relax without feeling cramped. Having the laundry in the condo is certainly a plus. Water pressure in the showers was better than expected and the beds were comfortable. ( I have stayed in other places in Cozumel where the beds were too hard to sleep on )
Residencia Reef is a fantastic condo community. The grounds are well maintained including the beach, which recieves a daily raking to get rid the shoreline of seaweed. All the staff were very pleasant. It was easy to walk up and down the beach. There are lots of rocks in the water, its not an easy entry point for swimming. (but again, in other Cozumel locations this was the same situation) The two pools are very clean and great place to sunbathe.
Nearby, are several beach clubs with water "play equipment" and bars. Very convenient for a quick walk for lunch or to pay a daily fee to play in the water. We also walked next door to Secrets to use the Spa for Massages. They offered the services at the same price as for their guests. This was a nice additional service.
Cozumel is a great island where you always feel safe (differently than other parts of Mexico) We found the food at every Restaurant we visited to be fresh and delicious. Although its expensive, I do recommend renting a car for at least a portion of your visit. YOu will want to go to the quiet side of the island, into town, or the ruins - all easier with your own transportation - but the cabs are plentiful! We made several trips to the Mega (local super store) for groceries. It is definately pleasant and "American" enough while still offering a local flavor and foods.
We will be going to Cozumel again, and when we do we will avoid the "all inclusives" and stay at Casa Gonzales at Resdiencia Reef. We loved it!
