“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2012

Wow!!! That was my first reaction when we walked into our condo. We rented PHAS which has 4 bedrooms and 4-1/2 baths. We rented the condo with another couple and only used the 2 master bedrooms...both had ocean views. The beds were very comfortable, as were all the furnishings. The staff is excellent....Claudia booked all our excursions and rental car, the doormen were always available to hail a cab, and the maids were very efficient, and didn't mind if we were in the room while they cleaned. The restaurant Prima was very good...and breakfast is free! The pancakes are huge! The location is great, within walking distance to downtown, and right across the street from 2 large grocery stores. There are also a couple of restaurants close by, so you don't always need to go downtown to eat. All in all, we greatly enjoyed our stay at El Cantil, and will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We stayed in the south building, which is right next door to the Cozumel Palace, which can be a litt...

Our first time staying at El Cantil in ten trips. The staff is wonderful at very attentive. The location can not be better. The condo, Luna de Miel (Honeymoon suite), is everyhting that is advertised. The furnishing are great, but the condo is not over-furnished at it is easy to move around. We like staying up (7th floor) for the privacy that you do not get on the first level. It is very easy to take the elevator down to go to the pool and you don't have your life on display like the first floor. Al and Ramon were very easy to work with and the maid did the cleaning without being noticed. We will be back and are deciding if we need a bigger unit for more people or want to have our own privacy again.

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at El Cantil over the past 7 years. The condos are a great value whether you need a studio or a 3 bedroom. They are always clean and well kept. The staff is very helpful. Most beds in Mexico are very hard and uncomfortable but theirs are like sleeping in your own bed at home. The infinity pool is just right with many lounge chairs. If you Scuba dive the boats will pick you up at the dock. You are with in walking distance of 2 large grocery stores and many restaurants. One of the best restaurants on the island is on the top floor of El Cantil. For a relaxing adventure I would Highly recommend that you give it a try.

Loved El Cantil!! We have been to the island several times and have stayed everywhere from the nicest all inclusive's to some of the run of the mill hotels.. The staff is great!! They will help you as much as you need or leave you alone as long as you like!! The condo (7AN) was HUGE and well equipped! We look forward to staying at El Cantil again. Great Spot in a Great Location!!

Just returned last night from a week at El Cantil. From the moment we checked in, I was in heaven. Check in took 5 miutes, tops. We stayed in 7a, (honeymoon suite). We spent the week lounging on the huge balcony or by the ocean. We had food ordered from Primas delivered to the pool a couple of times. Very good. Also had a pizza delivered to our room the last night. Also very good. We had free breckfast included at Primas, and had two delicous meals in the restaurant.

We enjoyed shopping at the grocery stores located across the street a couple times. An excursion in itself. We enjoyed snorkeling in front of the condo as well as the sunken pier, in front of the abandoned building next to Margaritaville.

We chose this condo for relaxation, and that's just what we got. Not alot of loud music, drunks, or kids running around unsupervised. Just the sounds of the ocean, and a view to die for.

Check out took all of 2 minutes. I just love the staff. From the maid, to Abraham. Can't wait to return.

We are thrilled to have found this place. My family enjoyed a great week in a beautiful condo with an incredible staff. Any help we needed, from Spanish grammar questions to scuba equipment rental to directions or taxi negotiations, everything was taken care of. Part of the appeal of this place is its location across from the grocery store where we found ingredients for salsa and guacamole every night. In addition, the pool and the snorkeling right out the back were soooo convenient for a family trying to relax. If you have a family with kids, this is the place to stay.

Thanks to Albert for arranging an extended stay when our plane flight was delayed until the next day.You went above and beyond the call of duty.

We've been going to Cozumel for years but our stay last week at El Cantil was the absolute best. Albert was very helpful with information before our trip and the staff was always there to help, even assisting us in bringing in groceries. The view is stunning and the infinity pool is a wonderful way to cool down in the afternoon. Location is great as well. We will be back soon.
