This is my 3rd stay at Chango Villa. It is surpasses my expectations (and they are high). The home is beachfront with an infinity pool. My guests and I woke up to the smell of delicious breakfast on the terrace every morning. We would unlock the equipment room and use the kayaks, paddle boards, and the snorkel gear. This past time, Brian (owner) arranges a boat trip with JJ to the most beautiful beach. We swam, drank margaritas and snorkeled with the fish and even saw stingrays and eels. JJ was local and better than any tourist firm on the island. The bedrooms are huge and private, and the beds are so comfortable so that just that and the sound of the ocean I was asleep in 5 minutes every night. My guests were thrilled and now can't wait to go back on their own. Thanks once again Brian, I will be booking trip #4 shortly!
We just left Changa Villa after spending Christmas week there! This villa is amazing! Each bedroom has its own bathroom and rooms are a great size. There is a beautiful outdoor space with two long tables for outdoor dining. Great room has large kitchen and sitting space. Pool area is large and faces personal beach area.
There is one bedroom on the first floor- you can hear the waves at night. Four bedrooms on second floor. Two bedrooms on lower floor that also has its own smaller kitchen and sitting area. Roof top has large relaxing area with cushioned couches and lounge chairs. Plenty of lounges in the pool area.
Caretaker Albino and housekeeper Lara were there every day to clean inside and outside areas- friendly, efficient and helpful. We had a chef come everyday to make breakfast and lunch- amazing food and also friendly, efficient and helpful. The staff cannot do enough to ensure your vacation is all it should be.
Things to know- you cannot do laundry yourself but Albino will get it done for your for $5 per small load. The clothes come back to you clean and professionally folded!
Beach area is a great size - however you should bring water shoes as there are many rocks and a lot of coral to walk on before you get to an area in the water to swim.
The villa is close to hotels and at night you can hear music but it isn't too loud or too late.
There is a bike path right outside the driveway gate for biking, running and walking.
If you want to snorkel or fish or jet ski- many areas to rent equipment.
Go to the east side of the island for soft sand, less rocky and great waves!
You are approx 30 minutes to grocery stores and town center. At the grocery store you can tip the baggers.
If you are looking for an amazing, fabulous, clean, comfortable, great location home to rent- come here.
Staff is exceptional!!!
I cant say enough about this Villa and location, It's set up in a way that everyone has there own space and open areas for everyone to get together. The Villa is kept in prestine condition by the caretakers Albino and Lara which were there everyday to clean the rooms, house inside and out, provide fresh towels for the rooms and the beach. The concierge Jessica and Clemente were there for what ever we wanted or needed, from booking adventures answering questions anytime. Again I cant say enough other than Chango Villa is why I would come back to Cozumel.
Sorry about the late review, but I just realized that I haven't reviewed Chango. We stayed here twice, 2015 and 2014. The house was impeccable, the food amazing, the staff friendly. Book this house if you want to be 100% sure that you will not be disappointed. It is within 100 yards of some beach clubs so there is tons to do during the day without having to drive.
Chango Villa was amazing! The best house on the island. We will go back again next year and look forward to bringing multiple families. The view, the beach, the pools the meals provided daily....all of it....just perfect!
As expected from prior reviews we read, the Chango Villa was amazing! It is really tough to beat this setup. The villa, the pool, the beach and the food were all top notch. Brian has the system down to make it easy to reserve and get all your needs supported. Jessica took care of any special requests while on the island with car rentals, dinner reservations, groceries, etc.... Albino took care of the premises immaculately. And Gaby's food was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and plan to be back next year.
Whether you are a connoisseur of world travel, or looking for a first time family/friends adventure in a tropical paradise -- do not miss out on Chango Villa, in Cozumel, Mexico! If you've done your homework prior to reading this review you would have discovered many 5-star reviews by a variety of Chango guests. Believe them - they are all 100% accurate! The accommodations are ideal for family vacations or a multiple friends/couples get-away, offering every possible amenity as well as ideal privacy. Enjoy the delectable meal service for a true destination vacation experience that offers native cuisine, prepared and served onsite. Bask in the sunshine of the spacious back courtyard; play in the infinity pool; and relish the sensation of sand between your toes on the private beach. The colors of Chango Villa are nothing less than awe-inspiring! From the lovely décor of the villa itself to the incredible scenic views, the vibrant colors, along with gentle breezes whispering through the fronds of the surrounding palm trees will soothe, relax and rejuvenate. From sunrise, to sunset, to moon glow - you will revel in all that is Chango Villa. Your comfort and pleasure is their goal - and they do it well. The daily caretakers of the villa are phenomenal - truly the nicest, most courteous people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are so non-intrusive you'll barely realize they're there, yet they will make you feel very well cared for during your stay. This specific vacation was for the purpose of bringing all of my children & grandchildren together for a destination family vacation. My kids/grandkids ranged in ages from 5 years to 40+ (a group of 11 total) and each one of us had an absolute blast in a truly lovely, very secure setting! The villa is absolutely ideal for a group of this size. In summary, I am an average middle class person who has experienced travel to various destinations around the world and have enjoyed numerous 5-star hotels, or exotic resorts. No one does it better Chango Villa -- no one!! And no one is more pleasurable to work with, or more service oriented than Brian, the owner! Don't miss this experience, people!! It is everything I have described and more. A part of my heart will always remain at Chango Villa! It would be my extreme pleasure to one day return. Thank you Chango for an incredible vacation experience!
