“Cantamar 302”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

My husband and I stayed here for the Ironman. It was a great little place with all you need. We are big cooks, so if you want to cook a lot I recommend finding a different unit. If you want to be out and about enjoying Cozumel, then this is the place to stay. If you are into snorkeling you can do it right behind the condo. This place has a beautiful ocean view and a great breeze. We had a blast!

We stayed at Cantamar for the Ironman Cozumel. We loved it, perfect location, close enough to town to walk in (10-15 stroll), but not too close to be on top of the cruise ship traffic and general bustle of San Miguel. The unit is very quiet. We liked being on the third floor (effectively the 2nd from the street level). Gorgeous views greeted us every day. The unit is nicely appointed with everything we needed for a very pleasant stay. Jill and Truett were so helpful in every way as we were lucky to have them on the Island at the same time as the race. They stay in their other Condo a mile up Island. Swimming off the dock in front of the complex was great. We will stay there again on our next trip to Cozumel. An unexpected bonus is the every other day maid service, so you always had clean sheets and towels. Kitchen and floors were left spotless. Highly recommend this property.

Just returned from six nights in Cantamar 201. Absolutely loved it. As others have mentioned, the location is away from the bustle of the shopping district, but close enough to walk to almost all the great restaurants. Pancho's Backyard and Guidos, two of our favorites, are on the north end of the town center, no more than a mile from the condos. The amenities, view, and recreational areas ( pool, lounging beach, access to the water for snorkeling ) are all outstanding. Rooms are spacious, kitchen is well-equipped, and WiFi to boot! Planes arriving a short distance away are not a big bother. They're are only about six-eight flights per day, and none during early morning or late evening. Entrance to a marina is about 100 yds north, so watching the comings and goings of boats is entertaining along with the arrival of several cruise ships each day. With the marina so near, boats often pass within a few hundred yards of the condo seawall, making it dangerous to snorkel or swim very far out. There's not much to see snorkeling once you leave the shoreline anyway, but ocean swimmers may feel a bit hemmed in. As the internet photos indicate, your private balcony ( very spacious ) is just a few yards from the seawall, and sunsets from there can be spectacular .

The 201's second level location was ideal for us. Just a few steps up from the street, and you're at your front door. No internal stairs to climb. If you have a car, ample parking is right in front of the units.

During our stay, we had several days of unusually high westerly winds, gusting up to 25 mph. No boats were allowed out of the marina, so scuba and snorkeling trips were cancelled. If that happens while you're there, we recommend a trip to Punta Sur, a beautiful beachfront park which is protected from westerly winds. Waters there were calm and breezes mild at the same time it was rough and very windy on the west coast of the island. There are hammocks, snorkel gear rental, food, beach chairs, changing area, lockers, and an inland lagoon on which boat tours are available in the afternoon ( you might spot crocodiles ). On the way there, be sure to climb to the top of the lighthouse on the road in, which, by the way , is one of the most poorly kept roads on the island, but well worth the jarring journey when you reach the beach.

Cantamar 201 could easily accommodate six adults, making it an exceptional value. There is a King Bed in the ocean bedroom, and two double beds in the street side bedroom. We would go back without hesitation.

We loved our time in Paradise at this condo. The decor is beautiful old world Mexico and original art is everywhere, the condo comes fully equipped and the beds are so comfortable. The pool is clean and, if you dive or snorkel, you will love the rinse tank and outdoor shower. We will be back in Cozumel next year.
Our only issue was the number of stairs from the beach to the condo but , if you are able, the trip is worth it.

We loved it . Diane is so organized with her instructions it made it so relaxing to get settled and enjoy our stay. Right on the water to enjoy great snorkelling or walk 3 doors down to dive with Aldora Dive shop. About a 15 min walk to town or flag a cap for $4. It was great . Go buy food at Mega market to snack or cook on your own or eat at Caza Cuzamil for Mayan food or La Terraza for seafood and Italian or La mission for Mexican, Margarita Ville for American. For a day trip ride the ferry to playa de Carmen only pay one way so you can come back on your time not the ferry schedule. Walk a block pasted the bus station and 3 blocks up on the right is a van ser ice and for $7 a person one way they'll take you to the Tulum ruins. You'll pay 57 pesos not American to see them. It's hot and has mosquitoes so buy bug spray. Take water. Take a van back its faster,cheaper and more reliable then the bus .

We stayed at this condo for 10 glorious days and I just can't say enough great things about it. The two of us both work with the public, so when we go on vacation, we want peace and quiet and not some big, loud party type complex. With only 8 units, it seems that it would be impossible for that to happen. even better for us, we were the only two there for three days! Once other people did arrive though, it was still nice and quiet. We only hung out in the pool once, because we loved the snorkeling in the ocean. Most days we were the only two in the beach area. This beach is another awesome feature, that I haven't seen in any other Cozumel rentals. Most other places we looked just had a pool and a concrete pad. Cantamar had two outside levels. The first level had the pool and you took a few steps down to the beach area complete with sand. We got a car a couple of days and explored the other side of the island. We ate at so many wonderful places. La Mission and Kinta were two of our favorites. Also we went to Los Chilango's which is a restaurant set in someone's living room. You get to eat local food with local people and it's incredibly inexpensive. Absolutely cannot wait to return!

I've been taking vacations in Mexico for 25 years + and have always done "all inclusives" until this time. We rented a condo in Cozumel (Cantamar #303) and it was the best experience I've had in Mexico. This place is PARADISE! It is right on the ocean and some of the best snorkeling I've ever done. The views from the condo are amazing! The owners have thought of everything you need for to make this your home. The restaurant and grocery information provided by Jill (owner) was very helpful. We cannot wait to return!
