Casa Phillip (C1) - Heated Pool, Fantastic Snorkeling
Description from the manager
Casa Philip, located in the stunning Peninsula Grand Cozumel complex, is beautifully modern, spacious, and luxurious. This first-floor condo is located right on the Caribbean Sea on the North Side of San Miguel, minutes from the airport, downtown San Miguel, and the island's only golf course.
The Northwest side of Cozumel is known for its easy-going atmosphere right on the pristine Caribbean Sea, convenient distance to downtown San Miguel where there are a plethora of shops and restaurants, and just a stone's throw from the island's only golf course and country club designed by the renowned golfer, Jack Nicklaus. While modern conveniences are just a short drive away, the privacy and seclusion of Casa Philip at the Peninsula Grand makes this condo so distinctive.
Peninsula Grand is known for its sleek sophistication. A large, heated Infinity pool lined with palm trees and cushioned lounge chairs will help you slip into relaxation mode. The pool overlooks a spacious man-made beach with palapas, Spanish for natural, thatched umbrellas, for shade. Just off the side of the beach, an outdoor shower and dive/snorkeling rise off area is provided for days spent underwater, exploring the stunning array of sea life in Cozumel's pristine waters. The property also offers a modern fitness center that overlooks the beach and Caribbean Sea with state-of-the art treadmills, elliptical, and stationary bikes. There is also a private massage room and sauna to melt away the stresses of everyday life.

The living room is spacious and has an open floor plan, linking the dining room and kitchen together, with views of the Caribbean Sea. The dining room seats up to eight and the décor is simplistic, bold, and modern with dark wood, stainless steel, and accent walls of bright color. There is even a separate lounge space, apart from the main living/dining room, with a comfy sofa, great for a children’s play space or quiet nook to read. An in-suite, modern, front- loading washer and dryer offer families a chance to keep clothes and towels clean throughout the vacation.
There is a balcony off the living room with confortable furniture also overlooking the azure waters, beach, and pool area below.

We found Casa Phillip to be a very nice place to stay. However, it let us down in two major ways. The description (and photo) tell of a flat screen TV in the den. We really wanted this, as we were two couples with very different TV tastes, so we could each have a TV to watch if needed. We also dislike always having to have the TV on in the living room should one couple wish to watch and the other not. There was no TV in the den. Bummer! Not that we watched TV that much, but it was one of the defining features that prompted us to rent Casa Phillip.
Secondly, we like to cook our breakfasts in our condo. The stove top was really bad. It barely got warm. For such a nice new condo it was awful. This was a bummer as well. Cooking our chorizo just got really difficult. We also could not find any trash bags and our garbage really overflowed out of the canister.
The pool table in the lounge was also kind of a joke. The pool cues were in very poor shape, with no chalk. We played a few games, but it was pretty rough.
Those negatives aside, we loved the views, the roominess, the decor and the complex in general. We found the pool to be uncrowded and there were pool noodles and coolers in the washroom that we enjoyed. Reasonably good wi-fi was also a plus. We used it a lot. The dinging of the elevator was not as noticeable as I feared from another review. But it wasn't a busy time of year, so it wasn't used all that much.
Taxis were very easy to flag down right in front of the complex - I don't think it every took more than 3 minutes to get one.
So it is a really nice place to stay other than what I mentioned. Margaret and Pawel also went out of their way to make the master bedroom special for our honeymooners. (For a fee.) That was a nice touch.
Thank you so much for that detailed feedback. Based on your feedback, we have replaced the stove in the condo with a brand new one that works super well and talked to the administration about replacing the pool cues.
Thank you again!

We spent four nights here and had a wonderful time. The condo was great for our family of four (2 adults, toddler and baby). Things we particularly liked:
- it's huge (much bigger than it looked from the photos) and well equipped
- great balcony with loungers and table, giving view of ocean and sunsets
- plenty of drinking water and ice provided - heated outdoor pool which was seldom busy
- plenty of space at the beach and pool for relaxing
- the pool and beach stay shaded until around midday
- decent snorkelling right off the beach
- tons of information and advice provided by the hosts
- short taxi ride to town (60-80 pesos)
It's too far to walk to town, but taxis were easy to flag down (never waited more than 10 min). Also, there's a guy on site until about 5pm who prepares snacks and drinks for very reasonably prices, and there's a hotel with restaurant very close by. We would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at Casa Phillip was wonderful. From our greeting,advice and guidance by antonio to drinks being served by the pool by Darwin...this vacation was awesome.
The condo was very well equipped and very comfortable. Added bonus having a bathroom with every bedroom! Our views from the condo were unreal and pictures do not do the scenery justice. Clear blue water and white sugar sand beaches was appreciated.
My only complaint or least liked was the loud beeping every time the elevators arrived on our floor. This noise could be heard within the condo.

I loved the time I spent here! The view in the morning of the waves crashing and the clear blue of the pool was fantastic! I got a lot of good writing done in my journal -- it's a great place to be to sort out all the thoughts in your head. Darwin made us delicious pina coladas and delivered them to us at the pool. Antonio, the security guard, helped us navigate taxi prices, and even made sure we weren't overcharged one of the nights we were dropped off. We even had a very nice woman place a phone delivery order for us when we couldn't figure out the phone system one night! Everyone was so nice and helpful! I definitely recommend staying here!

I am a airline employee and travel all over the world and have found Cozumel and Casa Phillip a great location...
This 3 bedroom condo is spectacular as every room has a ocean view with balcony.. The staff could not be more friendly and your location, about 3 minutes from town, makes it so convenent to shop and have many choices of resturants... Don't miss out on this gem...
"Incredible Caribbean Sea view. Great service and amenities."

I spent 3 great months at Casa Phillip. There's a beautiful Caribbean Sea view from every room. The beds are all very comfortable. The furniture is very nice and the couches sit very comfortably. The infinity pool is great and it even had a very reasonably priced "Snack Bar" well stocked with alcohol and drinks. The gym overlooked the Caribbean and had all the equipment you'll need to work off the great dinning available at the many island restaurants. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend Casa Phillip.
