What some of the previous guests say:

Very special home with lots of nice touches. Feels authentic:)

This was the perfect place to stay with my friends and family while on Cozumel for the Ironman race. It was a short drive from town and renting a car was cheap and easy. We really enjoyed having such a quiet place to retreat to and a thoughtfully appointed kitchen to make meals in. The kids especially loved the pool! Very comfy beds

Stay in this place! If you are looking for a nice clean place with the best hosts ever this is the spot. We arrived in Mexico with no idea what to do and our host helped us so much we nicknamed him Superman. The home was lovely and clean and there is the most wonderful famly living nearby that helped make our stay extra special. if I ever stay in Cozumel again I am running here no questions asked. Protip: listen to the host and RENT A CAR. We didn’t the first day following forums that we read online and that was a mistake.

Ventanas al mar hotel

📍 San Miguel – Cozumel · 2 guests · 1 bedroom · 2 beds · 1 private bath – ⭐⭐⭐ – 💲💲💲

I normally prefer renting homes rather than hotel rooms, but I made an exception for this lovely boutique hotel because it’s one of the few options you have if you want to stay on the ocean coast of Cozumel. I loved that side of the island for its dramatic views of the ocean, more suitable for surfers than swimmers.

You have to keep in mind though, that you are far away from restaurants, shops and bars and you would be better off if you rent a car, so you are free to move around when you want.

Having said that, this resort is a real gem, intimate and surrounded by nature. It’s the perfect getaway for a romantic holiday or a tranquil escape from all the noises and just live the beach life.

The rooms boasts different styles and decor, but all with a charming and stylish unique touch for a shabby-chic feel.

You have also access to the hotel pool, if the ocean is too rough to swim.

The restaurants of the hotel offers delicious local dishes.

What some of the previous guests say:

Ventanas al Mar is a very special place. Our room was spectacular and the view of the Caribbean couldn’t have been better. We loved the unique open air shower, the king sized bed, the spacious deck and the heart shaped pool. The whole staff was extremely helpful and simply awesome people. The breakfast with the fruit plate, fresh squeezed orange juice and the wide choice of other dishes started each day wonderfully. We also really loved the option to order dinner and the selection of dishes were as great as the prices...”

Ventanas al mar has a stunning location, it is rather someone who is looking for some peace away from the rest of the world. The rooms are spacious, each with ocean views. Service friendly and not intrusive. We will want to go back there as often as we can.

Thanks for an awesome day we would like to stay again ! Great location and hospitality 🙂

We really liked the apartment and the location. Although a close walking distance from everything and just one block away from the coast, it was quiet and tranquil. It had the 3 Cs: cute, clean and (c)quiet! I would highly recommend this place!!

I really enjoyed staying at the Sugar Bungalow. The ac worked great, the internet was strong enough for me to work remotely for a month, it was conveniently located for an extended stay. Very close to the grocery store, and walkable to downtown or the beachy restaurants closer to the main cruise ship terminal. I could get by on foot most of the time, and loved reading my books in the hammock by the pool. The place is secured by a locked gate and the whole complex is only 3 units so it feels very quiet and homey. There is also a dive gear cleaning station and ample clothing lines making it a great spot for divers.

What some of the previous guests say:

What can I say? This place is magic. I came solo with my mini dachshund, Sneak, and stayed in a little cottage in their jungle compound. There were always some friendly dogs coming and going, so Sneak had friends to play with, plus they were great entertainment. There are two pools in the compound, and it’s a short walk to the beach, including a few little spots where the locals swim, and many restaurants on the beach to the south, which have live music some nights...

Ana’s place is a little piece of heaven in Cozumel! My dog and I extremely enjoyed our stay. The tropical garden is well landscaped and the cottages are well appointed and decorated – truly showcasing Ana’s interior decorating background. I love the little touches that may easily go unnoticed but comes in so handy. Highly recommend and I will definitely come back next time I’m in Cozumel.

What some of the previous guests say:

Ruben is a great host, attentive yet laid back. The place was super clean and well equipped. You will have a great time at his place. Shops are close and it is located in a very non-touristic part of the city. Real Mexico! Make sure to eat at Taquiera Chilangos our favorite. The quesadillas are rico.

“Tortuga Gardens is a beautiful place. Clean (cleaning woman comes 3X week!), updated and stylish, quiet, all conveniences you could need. Conveniently can walk to the grocery store, and right next to hwy where catching taxis is simple. 

The stay with Ruben could literally not have been better. Everything was perfect. The host is just great and super-friendly, he gave us lots of tips on what to do and where to go, the apartment is really beautiful and well equipped, the pool is amazing and we could use his little gym and his snorkeling equipment. All in all really great and if we go back to Cozumel we’ll definitely want to go back to Ruben.

Surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden with a pool and waterfall surrounded by different palm trees, bromelias, orchids and other plants, a very unique greenery combined with beautiful Mayan stone steles and various wood, stone and metal modern sculptures, creating a very surreal and magic atmosphere that you won’t find anywhere else in Cozumel.

What some of the previous guests say:

Everything was great. I would definitely stay in the same place if I go back to Cozumel.

“The House of Mirrors is a perfect stay for those seeking relaxation in the island after a day of scuba diving. It is located near to most restaurants in Cozumel that are open for dinner, and Marco will be able to point you out to the best spots. During the afternoons, idling your hours away in either the pool or the hammocks, while you listen to Marco´s collection of Soul, Blues & Jazz, or if you prefer to cook on your own, the kitchen is pretty well supplied with accesories and the super market and liquor shop within walking distance. The house offers a lot of privacy, and the neighbors aren´t loud “

If you’re coming to Cozumel, MX this is a great place to stay at. The house is beautiful and eccentric. There are two big patios and one that wraps around from one bedroom to the restroom.

What the previous guests say:

My husband and I just got back from a week’s stay at Treetop Cozumel and it was perfect! Located just a few blocks from the ocean and close to both grocery stores, which you can easily ride one of the bicycles to. The condo is spacious, clean, and super functional. The bed is very comfy as well! The rooftop area is fantastic and the plunge pool was so refreshing! Elsa was very quick to respond to any of my questions and recommended some fabulous restaurants as well as a terrific dive operator, Scuba Life. We’ve been going to Coz for over 20 years and we will definitely be back to Treetop!.”

Book it now its amazing!

“Treetop is in a very convenient location. Before we got to the location, Elsa sent us very detailed instructions. It was our first time in Cozumel and we felt very safe. Our apartment was clean and well stocked. We had lots of sunlight pouring in our windows each day. The cleaning staff was very friendly. Elsa was very responsive and had many suggestions before we even got to Cozumel. Overall, the fact that we got one less worry while on vacation during these crazy times made a huge difference. We will definitely stay in Treetop once again.”
