This place lived up to its ratings. Great spot, great rooms and couldn't have asked for a better location in Cozumel. Whatever you do - you don't want to stay too close to the water or else you'll be in tourist trap hell - and this place is far enough away from all that to be peaceful, but close enough so you can walk to the ferry or to get a taxi to any of the dive shops (or anywhere, really).
Jim - the new owner - hails from Wisconsin and is as friendly as most mid-westerners. He was very welcoming and eager to hear of any suggestions or things we noticed during our 4-day stay since he had just bought the place a few weeks prior to our arrival. He has lots of friends on the island and made great recommendations for places to eat, drink (wet wendy's!!), and dive (blue angel). Everywhere we went, people knew Jim and had great things to say about him. Apparently he's been going to Cozumel for years!
The rooms are huge (really unique 2-story villas, actually) and have a kitchenette and separate living room downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom are in a large loft upstairs. My only complaint is that the beds were painfully rock hard and the sheets paper thin. I have no doubt he'll update that though.
Anyway, highly recommended!
