Loved our stay in Cozumel, and our Hosts were one of the best we ever met. Ditto all other reviewers, and the pictures do not lie. Would love to come back soon...and enjoy all the great moments all over again.
Magda was amazing, so friendly and loved visiting with her, and David had good suggestions on the island. Our king room was very comfortable, especially the A/C, can't imagine a room without air!! The tropical humidity can cause a slight mustiness, but a/c helps elimate this situation. Bath was very large and clean. Coffee is excellent, and breakfast a real treat.
We appreciated not having to prepay before we arrived, and gladly paid cash once we were ready to leave. Perhaps it was our last minute (3 days in advance) reservation, but this made good business sense to us.
They also have other Cozumel properties 3 bedroom (all kingsize beds, Magda has done her market research!) mid-town apartment & 1 bed oceanfront condo, so if B&B isn't your thing, ask about these.
Learned from other US tourist, the Mega Market or Wal-Mart-like Chedraui are the best places to ATM, and/or buy anything you may need.
Our Favorite Places to Eat: La Choza (just across the street! Go for lunch special, ask David)
Del Sur (empanadas & steak) El Foco (guacamole, burritos - but saw their whole fish entree, and wish we had ordered that!) All in walking distance from Villa Escondida.
Best Drinks: Agave (on the Square, ask Magda) $5 Margarita, in different flavors. I loved the Coconut...and daughter said the Cucumber was the best she ever had! Skip Margaritaville $10 drinks...unless you just want to use their waterfront playground.
