This was our third time staying at the Residencias Reef and our first time experiencing 5200 Vista de Paraiso. This was by far the best unit we have stayed in. The view from anywhere in the condo was simply unbeatable. We love it here. The laundry was a huge benefit and the service was great. We feel so safe here that we are consider buying if something comes available someday.

Our family of 5,(kids ages 3,5,8) stayed in unit 5200 in Feb. 2014. I researched long and hard for the perfect vacation spot that would accommocate 3 kids, which is challenging, most hotels don't allow 5 in a room. Now that we've stayed in a 3bd/3ba condo we won't be able to go back to a hotel room ever again..hello? A choice of bathrooms?! The unit was clean and had most everything we needed. Most importantly it had space for the kids to run around and for us to stretch out and relax! The wrap around deck facing the ocean was the highlight, we had every breakfast and lunch outside. The other bonus to a condo is haveing the washer/dryer - we went home with all clean clothes! The complex was quiet and perfect for our family. The beach was beautiful, great for long walks. The kids loved feeding the fish off the pier and feeding the iguanas in the mangroves on the property. We rented a 4 dr jeep for the family and we used it every day to either go to dinner, to town or explore the island. We found driving to be easy once we got used to the lack of car seats and the fact the jeep had no top (not good in the rain). We did our grocery shopping at Mega, which had everything. We were there during Carnival,a major celebration for the locals, which was fun with excellent parades, etc. We would go back to this complex and would rent this unit again. It is the best location in the complex! Other highlighs on Cozumel were swimming with Manatees at Chankanaab Park and Coconuts, a restaurant on the east side of the island. All around great vacation! Can't wait to go back!

A beautiful condo and and an even more beautiful view
The staff were all very helpful and courteous
The snorkeling in front of the condo was excellent
Our only suggestion is to have some music at the pool but then again the quite was very relaxing

This is our second time staying in unit 5200. The first time was 3 years ago. Obviously we enjoyed our stay the first time, but it was rather 'plain' in decor. The views and location are what motivated us to book this unit again. Upon arrival, it completely surpassed our expectations. Many places start declining after a couple of years, but it was just the opposite experience. New furnishings, decor and kitchen design were flawless. The patios had new furnishings and chairs as well. The unit managed to be both comfortable and upscale.
Some people complain that the Residencias Reef is located too far from town and the restaurants. If you are looking for a lively, atmosphere with nightclubs, definitely not the place for you;) Driving into town took about 15 minutes each way. I would strongly recommend renting a car as cab fares get costly. As a diver the location could not be any better. Boat rides were incredibly short due to the southern location of this unit. Personally, I would rather have the longer distance into town and short boat rides than vise versa. Near the pier were two showers and a large rinse tank. Very diver friendly and functional.
Grounds are immaculate and constantly being maintained. Both pools were spotless with ample chairs and tables. Never felt crowded. Beach is always kept up and raked. Abundant lounge chairs with no rush to place 'dibs' on vacant chairs. Ocean entrance can be challenging with some rocky entries, but pier had ladder and wonderful snorkeling.
My only suggestions towards improvement are two very minor details. 1) bathrooms have nice, tastefully decorated shower curtains sans liner. Floor around tub can get slippery. 2) Curtains were thin and light which made sleeping in more challenging. As I stated, these are very minor issues.
All utilities in unit functioned well and kept us comfortable. Each room had it's own a/c unit. Dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer also a plus.

This is a good condo in a great location. The condo is very nice. Its not in perfect condition but close: (dishwasher not the best, one noisy ac fan), and it is in a perfect location. The closest condo to the water in the complex with easy access to beach and pool. Very nice staff, clean complex. 200 yards to "action" of a beach bar with music and water activities, 15 yards to quiet beach and poolside. Wonderful sunsets and dinners were had on the wrap around deck. Helpful hints: bring water shoes so you can walk in the water and swim(sharp rocks), try the taco truck on the main road, Del Sur argentinian Steakhouse for dinner in town (get the sirloin). We rented a car so we could tour the island. Although $25/day for required insurance it worked out well (Thrifty) (taxi to town for 6 was $30 each way. A great week in the sun for two families with teens... more space than a hotel and less expensive.

This is a belated review for our one-week stay at Vista de Paraiso in mid-December 2012. Both the condo and the property are fantastic-exactly as described. The condo is huge, with fabulous floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the beach and a fully-equipped kitchen with every utensil and appliance you could want (plus a washer and dryer). Everything was spotless and things like soap, paper towels, detergent, etc. were already there so we didn't have to shop for them. Wifi and us/Canada-calling worked perfectly. The property was quiet, and the two pools were often empty. The property felt very secure. My partner used Dive Palancar and they pick up from the dock a 2-minute walk down the beach. It's about a $30us return taxi ride to town (about a 15-minute ride) so I would probably rent a car the next time as the condo is in an area that's quiet at night and there are so many great restaurants in town. Everyone I spoke to at Enjoy Cozumel (Pawel, Margaret, Alex) was so helpful. Pawel and alex both visited us during the first couple days we were there to make sure we had everything we needed and there is a fantastic binder of restaurant and activity recommendations in the apartment. This is the first time I have ever rented an apartment and was a bit wary of doing so, but I can't speak highly enough of Vista de Paraiso and Enjoy Cozumel.
Thank you so much for the great review Violet! We hope to see you back in Cozumel one day!
"Great condo, great location."

We were very pleased with everything. A very nice rental. It is a three bedroom condo on the second floor of a beach front building. The unit is up one flight of stairs. It is a short walk to the pools in the complex. There is one assigned parking space for your rental car. The unit has a nice kitchen for preparing meals and several eating areas (indoors and outdoors). The complex is close to a number of restaurants as well.
Check is was simple and there is a lock-box for the key. The on-site guy (Alex) was very helpful and everything worked out very well. I only had to meet alex to pay for the optional cleaning lady. Everything else was handled in advance. He was around and available to help with any questions we had which I appreciated.
We had rented the same unit last year and could not help but note the improved furniture and the dishwasher. These were definite improvements that made the condo a lot nicer. Great condo, great location. You cannot beat the location.
It was very easy to work with the rental company over the internet. Not the most perfect website but they were prompt, responsive, helpful and very easy to deal with. That is the most important thing for me. All of the information on the website was accurate and the photos are a very accurate representative of the unit. I, and my guests, were all very happy with the week we spent in Cozumel.
"Amazing views - on San Francisco beach - time to relax & dive!"

The condo's location is right on San Francisco Beach where you can easily be picked up by the dive boats. It is also a great place to hang out on the sandy beach and pool to read, relax, and rejuvenate after a great dive. There are many other watersports and activities nearby. The outside wrap-around veranda gives amazing views, and a place to enjoy a homemade margarita with all the comforts of home away from home. Downtown is only a short distance to do shopping, to enjoy the local restaurants and activities. The condo has a good kitchen and chef services are available. Looking forward to returning to paradise soon - the diving is spectacular!
