Comfortable, clean, ocean view, nice location about a mile from town. Snorkel off the back of the house. Just be careful, the current can be strong at times. Pool was nice, drained and filled every few days with 82 degree sea water. You'll need a car, since town is about a mile away, and the Mega grocery store is about 2 miles away. Victor was responsive to our needs. We went diving with Alberto at El Pulpo Divers, which was recommended to us. He was great. When we come back to Cozumel, we'll stay here again.
This house was perfect for our large group of family and friends. The daily maid service by Antonia was awesome. Victor was very attentive and easy to communicate with. For instance, the air conditioner in one of the bedrooms quit working. It was replaced with a brand new one within 24 hours. Nice! An extra bonus is the lots on either side of the house are vacant. It affords the house extra privacy and is quiet at night. A short walk to the Coral Princess or Hotel B for meals out. As well as a very well stocked kitchen. (even a milkshake maker) We will book this house again. Thank you Enjoy Cozumel for the great service!
There were 8 of us staying for 8 days at this lovely Villa. It was perfect for us. Wonderful beach area and could jump right in the water from here. Lots of fish to see while snorkeling. The kitchen was very adequate for cooking at home and a large table we could sit around and visit. The rooms are spacious and showers were good. We are planning another stay here next year.
Actually, compared to the last 2 years staying there, it seems this villa is now going downhill...we got there on saturday...tried to shower...had no hot water...reported it sunday...was fixed monday afternoon...3 days with no hot water...but the place is rented out back to back??? You advertise a jacuzzi tub, but who wants to relax in a cold tub with bubbles?? In addition to no hot water...the pressure was scarce....i ended up having to take the shower head off to get anything more than a trickle of water. We also had no WiFi until Monday which makes it difficult to communicate with family back home, look up things to do, etc. After getting the WiFi fixed...we were advised that it was the lowest bandwidth available and that maybe 1 or 2 people could be online at a time, but that it would be very slow...also, we had to take turn sitting in the one corner of the living room where it seemed to be the only place it worked...we did not have WiFi in any other part of the house...for your prices...that is ridiculous...in addition, after the wifi was fixed, the tv was stuck on 1 spanish channel for the duration of our stay!!! The beds seem to be from the 1970s, with so much accumulated dead skin cells that they are turning to rocks...extremely uncomfortable...every bedroom...the front gate latch can be slid open with the push of a finger...the a/c in one room on the 3rd floor didnt work until tuesday...after arriving on saturday....how can all of this be going on if the place is rented back to back? I just don't get it...we made the best of it...but will not be returning to this villa...it was good for the 1st 2 years, but until changes are made, dont count on return guests.
This is a beautiful house on the north end of the island, right on the ocean with easy access to great snorkeling. The house is huge and the rooms are very large with seating for 14 at the dining room table. With a house this large some might want more than one TV but we were okay with that. Coral Princess is right next door if you need a quick place to grab a bite to eat or drink or need a taxi.
The only reason we did not give it a 5 star rating is the water temperature and pressure in the showers and the spitting/explosive kitchen faucet. Other than that everything was wonderful.
We loved sitting on the observation deck and watching the ocean or the iguanas in the empty lots next door. The housekeeper Antonio was wonderful and we practiced our Spanish with her and she her English with us. Quentin the pool man was a wealth of knowledge about the island and fun to talk with.
We would definitely rent this house again!
Villa princessa was a perfect choice for our two week stay in cozumel. Victor was always available with any questions or concerns and even provided us with an outdoor Grill when requested. We had family flying in and out during our two week stay and the option to add additional rooms was priceless. The maid was terrific and we loved her! We set it up so she came every other day and the pool was drained & cleaned every three days. The beds were comfortable and the hot water seemed to work better the more people were using it. The whirlpool tub in the master bath was fantastic! Being next door to a dive resort was excellent as well so if we were feeling lazy we could walk next door for happy hour and the food & drinks were excellent & reasonably priced. We could also rent dive equipment! If you've never stayed on the water in Cozumel, you'll never go back once you do. The ability to jump in the water from your back yard and snorkel or dive is unparalleled. We even set up to have a local dive master come hang out for an afternoon and others in our party spent hours snorkeling. It was out of this world!
The only problem we encountered with the house was that we had to get creative to find any room to store our dry goods but the house came equipped with enough pots, pans, and dinnerware to feed an army, which we did, several times.
Water does seem to pool up in areas around the pool so care needs to be taken when entering the house so no slips/accidents occur. We didn't have any problems at all. Also there are a lot of stairs so if you are traveling with someone with a disability this should be considered.
I would highly recommend Villa Princessa to anyone traveling with a large group. The service is second to none.
We will most definatly be back!
Even though I have been to Cozumel maybe 30 times, I was extremely careful with renting Villa Princesca for our 40th anniversary gathering. And what a marvelous gem right on the water! The house was comfortable and yet spotless under the care of Antonio who cleaned for hours each day. All bedrooms and baths were as photographed with AC working well for the most part. The kitchen had basic needs such as a blender, coffee maker, pots and pans and the dining table was enormous holding our group. The saltwater pool is small but the man-made beach in front of the ocean entrance is wonderful.
Staff kept ample water for our large group which was greatly appreciated. I strongly recommend Villa Princesca; it is a multi-level house that worked perfectly for our group.
