A recent guest said “it was like staying in a Presidential Suite at a 5 star hotel.” All reviews rave about the place.
• Top floor(8th) of new building-no noise from above!
• Beach club across the street; great snorkeling, shore diving
• King Bed, Queen Bed & Queen pullout
• 2 ½ baths
• High speed Wifi, and free US/Canada calls both directions
• 24/7 Security
Our 1900 sq. ft. condo is located on the top floor of an elegant 8 story building---Palmar Condominiums. It is becoming THE place to stay in Cozumel for good reason. The grounds and building are very elegant and the amenities are first class. Our place has wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass leading out onto a 35 ft. long covered deck with a magnificent view of the ocean!
A small beach club across the street provides a place to sun in the sand. It also provides easy access to one of the top shore snorkeling sites on the island as evidenced by the fact that many snorkel boat operators bring literally hundreds of their paying customers to this spot every day (see photo). This area also provides a nice shore dive.
A beautiful very large pool has a huge tiled area surrounding it with chairs, The cabanas, shaded 'beds' and pool side wifi makes it a place you can hang out for hours. The pool area has become the gathering place of residents of Palmar and vacations renters. Most units in Palmar are owned by who are local professionals. Several others are Americans who live there permanently or spend several months a year in Cozumel. It is a great place to meet people, hang out and watch the activity on the ocean. A tennis court, game room (pool, ping pong) and gym are part of the complex and can be used by our guests.
Palmar is situated in the 'south' hotel district which means it is about 5 minutes, by car/taxi, or a 25 minute walk from downtown. It is in the heart of lots of activity in the south hotel district. You have quick access to restaurants and a new shopping cents and other shops. A 24 hr convenience store is located just below the pool area.
As you will see in the photos the views are magnificent. By being on the 8th (top) floor your view 'from on high" lets you clearly see the incredible variety of greens and blues that has made Cozumel's waters famous. You also have a wonderful vantage point to watch cruise ships come and go as well as sail boats, snorkelers and other boats seemingly dance across the sparking turquoise water during the day. Then, every evening you watch the sun set in the Caribbean. Mornings are glorious......breakfast on the balcony while looking down into the incredible water is something we never tire of. It is truly a magical place to stay.
We also like the fact that the building does not directly face west. The building was wisely designed slightly facing south so you get the sunset views without the afternoon sun making it too hot to enjoy the balcony as the sun goes down. This may seem a small thing...it is not. Many condos face directly west and although views can be good it is too hot to be outside until after sunset. The buildings layout also blocks the wind. We have sat on the balcony and watched storms blow across the sea with lightening flashing in the distance. Quite a show.
We have taken pains to decorate the condo beautifully and to furnish the kitchen with first class cookware and other things needed by those who love to cook. If you prefer to have a local cook for you that can be arranged at a reasonable cost by our local property manager.
There are two bedrooms and each has its own bath. There is a queen sized pullout couch in the living room and a guest bathroom near the entry way so people staying on the pullout do not have to bother fellow guests in the middle of the night.
A washer and dryer are in a utility room. All cleaning supplies are provided as is maid service when you leave. You can get additional maid service if you would like for a modest fee (about $25)
For divers, the dive shop across the street (Del Mar Aquatics) offers 10% discounts for people staying in our condo if you do at least 3 days of diving with them. It is a top notch, full service shop. They also have lockers for your gear.
Our local property management company will make sure you get settled in and check in every 2-3 days to insure your stay is what you hoped for. They can also arrange fishing trips, tours, massages in the unit and many more things you might want to do.
This a first class condo that you will remember staying at for the rest of your life. We think this is why so many people staying with us keep coming back! We love Cozumel and want you to love your stay.
