“Back to Las Ventanas”
We have stayed at Las Ventanas twice. It is the perfect spot for a large group. The pool area is lovely and private. The upper terrace is a great place to chill with beautiful views. The new dock at the ocean is a great new amenity and we all took advantage of this to snorkel. It is very nice that the guest rooms are all very private and have their own bathrooms. Outside showers are awesome too! The interior of the home is really pretty basic, but suits us perfectly for a casual beach vacation. A few things in the home could be updated here and there, but nothing was by any means unacceptable, dirty or in disrepair. I cannot say enough about the house caretaker Edgar. He is a very kind and wonderful man. He constantly checked in to ensure we were happy and helped us when we had questions (ice, taxis, helped us with the grill, etc.) He is a gem. We will definitely be back to Las Ventanas again!

“Dream Weaver 27 June - 7 July 2013 Go Big or Go Home Trip.”
We love going to Cozumel for the diving, so the location of Ventanas is perfect because the pier is on the next pc of property. We were also 4/10 mile walk on the beach to get to Carlos and Charlies. The house itself was nice and spacious and overall well kept. We had every thing we needed in the kitchen and compared to the Iguanas property we stayed in last stay, we prefer the layout and flow of Ventanas. The bedrooms were icy cold so a perfect retreat. We played a lot of volley ball in the large pool. We went to Ventanas with four other families and everyone had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again. The beach towels seemed slow in coming, but I learned from the housekeeper the washing machine had broken. I called Luiz and discussed this with him and he was there within 10 minutes. He had brought a new machine and the speed of beach towels and linens was great after. The housekeeper and staff were courteous and did a great job caring for the property and answering our questions and needs yet remaining almost invisible. We usually vacation in private homes and definitely would recommend Las Ventanas to others looking for a great and comfortable vacation home!

“Annual Dive Trip”
This is the sixth time we've rented here - house staff is awesome!
IA, United States
We enjoyed our week at Las Ventanas, especially the pool and the setting. The house was as pictured and as hoped - clean, spacious, with lots of room for our extended family ranging in age from 7 months to 58 years. We left only for groceries and a bit of shopping, preferring to enjoy the pool and the nearby beach.
The caretakers took great care of the house and pool while maintaining a respectful distance as we relaxed and vacationed. Any requests we made were quickly fulfilled.
The bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms were amazing and we especially liked the outdoor showers in three of the rooms. The kitchen was equipped well enough for us to cook all meals there, and we enjoyed cooking and experimenting with the local ingredients.
The house is clearly used for rentals only, no evidence of regular residents. There was a large screen TV so we could enjoy the Oscars, but we couldn't get the DVD player to work. (We didn't try that hard as everyone had plenty to do without TV!). There is no dishwasher, which could be a problem for some.
All in all, we would consider returning to this place. We called it our "family compound" and would be hard pressed to find a better one!

“Fantastic Vacation and Outstanding Meals!!”
My wife and eight of our friends had a great vacation at Las Ventanans. Property was exactly as described and the pictures on the internet. House is in good condition. Having bedrooms with attached bathrooms was great so everyone had there personal space. The biggest surprise of the week were the fabulous meals that Edgar and his wife prepared. We weren't expecting gourmet meals - but we got them. Fresh flower centerpieces each day. Fresh fruit. And dinners were amazing with standsouts being a braised chicken and Fish Tickinchik. We will definitely be back!!

“Rental 2 of 5”
We rented this house for 4 nights for a group of people for our wedding. The house and pool were great and the rooms provided everyone with plenty of privacy. Only had one issue with one of the room AC units but this was fixed promptly.

“Awesome Experience with the best food EVER!! :)”
This rental experience was excellent. The staff were incredible. Always available and there to accommodate. The location was perfect for us...the proximity to the beach (you could see it from the end of the property), action if you wanted it (a fun north american style resto/bar was walking distance) - the location was really superb - and the main town area for groceries and shopping was only a 10-15 min drive away (although it was so relaxing at the villa we barely wanted to leave). And the villa was quite private - with only passerby traffice on a rare occasion as they passed our pool area in the distance to reach their dive boat. And the food was DIVINE. We took the cook and the menu offered by the company and boy were we surprised!! Our whole group of 8 are officially converted to being Mexican food lovers. Not only delicious, every day we could tell the cook when we wanted to be cooked for and served - this truly made it an extra special wonderful experience. And did I mention every room had their own bathroom, some with outdoor showers and the views from some of the rooms were breathtaking. LOVED this experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. :)

“Las Ventanas Christmas”
Good experience. Overall very good rental. Fridge was a bit small for this size of a house. Would recommend an upgrade there--the seals were not in great shape. The on-site care takers were great. Our group of 11 cooked a lot of our meals so we didn't take advantage of their cooking.

“friends and family together worked out”
The fridge could be updated in size and quality for keeping food cold. The only thing that would have made this villa more enjoyable would be if it were situated on a beach.
“Great villa. Bedrooms are roomy, outdoor showers in some of the”
This was one of the most enjoyable vacations our group of 9 have ever been on. The property was beautiful and Edgar & Nini our chefs prepared 1st class meals. We would definitely come back again.
“Las Ventanas, Cozumel”
Loved our stay! Would return in a heartbeat. The staff was polite, hard working and fast to handle any requests. Excellent value for the price. Hot water didn't last too long for showers but with 8 people getting ready at once...well let's put it this way everyone got ready fast so we were never late going anywhere. A few little nice finishing touches one some of the things in the house would go a long way to improve overall appearance and impression but we still loved it! Spacious, clean, great staff, wonderful location, overall A- and I'm usually not that generous while rating a hotel/vacation house stay! Awesome
“It was a great vacation for everyone.”
Nini and Edgar were great as usual. Hope we can go again next year. One of the things we love to do when we go there is to scuba dive. Alejandro Oliver is the dive master we dive with. He has certified two of my grand children and a friend as well. He is very careful, very patient, and we could not ask for a better person to look out for our welfare. .
“Great Fun for entire family”
I have stayed at this villa about 5 times--sometimes with family and sometimes with friends. The staff are excellent. They are always friendly and helpful and do a great job. We love the location. It is good for divers which we are because of Alex Oliver and the others at the dive shop. On this trip some dove four times and others dove six times.
“Great Week in Cozumel”
We just returned from another wonderful week in Cozumel. This was our second time to use At Home in Cozumel and our first time at Las Ventanas. We also had the same cook as our previous staff. His name was Luis and he was wonderful. Very accomodating and wonderful food. We dove 3 different times with Sand Dollar which was right next door and very convenient. The pool was also setup for water volley ball and it got a lot of use. We would highly recommend this property to anyone. We had 3 families with a total of 15 people and it was very comfortable. The couple that stays at the property to clean and help with cooking was very nice as well. Thanks for a great trip.

“Property is showing its age”
First, I would like to say that the on-site house staff was absolutely wonderful. Likewise, the reservation company in the U.S. was great. However, we never heard from nor were we ever contacted by the local property "manager" in Cozumel. He left a note at the house & disappeared the rest of the week. Also, the house is in disrepair & is not being well maintained. We have stayed at this house before, and each time it is worse, instead of improved. For example, there were very few pots & pans in the kitchen, and the ones that were there were in terrible shape. Tiles are missing from the pool, handles are missing from the closets, and both the vcr & dvd players are missing - apparently they broke & have not been replaced. So much for the movies we wanted to watch, and if you had kids, this could ruin your vacation. The blinds in some of the rooms are missing slats, there was no hot water in 2 of the bedrooms, and the screens on one side of the house were missing, allowing so many flies inside it was almost unbearable to cook. Also, the refrigerator is so small, you can't possibly fit a week's worth of food in it. We had to buy coolers just to store our beverages. For the price of this so-called "luxury" house, it needs to be well appointed with amenities. All of that having been said, for us, the location next to the dive shop more than made up for the property's shortcomings. We had a wonderful time & would go back again.
Response from the manager, At Home In Cozumel Inc - 04/26/2009
Hi Susan Right after your group left we performed the scheduled maintenance on the home. Everything that is mentioned on your check list was fixed except that the refrigerator hasn't been replaced with a larger model. We are glad that even before these repairs were done, you would still consider returning. It is a great property at a very convenient location for divers. Thanks for your comments. They were very useful to us.
“Great place for families!”
We shared the house with 2 other families. We had 6 adults and 5 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. We loved having our own pool at the house. The beach was close to the house but a little bit of a walk for all the kids. Plus the beaches were pretty crowded with resort guests. The best thing was having a personal chef that cooked us breakfast and dinner each day. The food was delicious and it was so great to not have to take the kids out to a restaurant.

“Property has seriously declined since our last stay.”
No hot water for two different days. Not all lights, fans functional. Screens torn, blinds broken, drawers and handles don't work, furniture broken - cushions torn, toilet seat broken, shutters don't work. Numerous, numerous problems with overall property condition. We were very disappointed this trip - we had bragged about Las Ventanas because our previous trip here was so enjoyable - only to be let down. Even though it is in a great location for the dive shop and pier, I doubt that we will stay here again or ever recommend it to our friends.

“A Wonderful place to stay for a family of 11 persons.”
The cooks, house caretaker and his wife cleaned the place everyday, except Sunday. They were very attentive to our needs and even shopped for groceries for us three times during our stay. The first morning we heard the clank, clank of the oxygen tanks being loaded, but after that we didn't even noticed. We rented a motor scooter and a jeep to go to town which is about 5 miles from Las Ventanas. There are several restaurants we could walk to along the beach. And snorkle anytime we wanted to. We took a tour to snorkle from the dive shop next door. All in all it was a wonderful stay.

i love louis ..he makes me want to stay longer
“Property needs some work”
This was obviously a beautiful house in its day, but it needs some serious investment to bring it back in line to standard. Since the pricing was reduced from your advertised rates, I can't be too upset. If I had paid the full $5000 for the week, I would have been very disappointed. Specifically, we were not aware that the living/dining/kitchen areas were not air conditioned, the second floor had very little hot water or water pressure, ants infested the kitchen every night, and the curtains and blinds throughout the house were either damaged or missing. On a brighter note, the property manager was very attentive and responsive to requests we made.
“The house maneger, Javier, must have been new because he had no”
The Grass had not been cut in a few weeks and was very overgrown. The internet and the phone did not work. After calling Javier and told him that noghting was at the house that we requested, several hours later and a trip to the local hotel store for some pringles and diet cokes. I spent $77 dollars at the store in front of the Wyndam. The phone, internet and grass issue was finally resolved on Thursday. We arrived on Saturday at 2pm. Javier arrived at 6pm. Nobody ever mentioned the dive shop that the entire hotel next door will use and walk thru your back yard the entire time you are there.
The temp cooks Rosie and Selia were awsome, always on time and the food was incredible.
We had a great time because it was our vacation and it was Cozumel but the house could have been better with a different (Javier).
“Our family had a great vacation. We hope to stay there next yea”
When we signed up for the vacation I put down a $1000.00 deposit which was not part of the rental amount. I believe we left the house in the condition in which we found it. I was wondering how soon I would receive the deposit.
Response from the manager, At Home In Cozumel Inc - 06/20/2008
We refund the damage deposits within 5-7 business days. Your full refund was mailed on June 26. We are very happy you had a great vacation.... At Home In Cozumel

“First class diving & after diving property!”
Pictures tend to be not acurate when displaying a property. This one is for real and uncover few details of a very well designed and equiped place where you can certainly feel at home in Paradise Island.

“Give Las Ventanas a look.”
We had a great time. A good location next to the dive center allowed us to wander over for lessons and go out on trips at our convenience without the hassle of driving. We had 12 guests, which were easily accommodated by the spacious rooms. My only complaint was that the weather was hot and still. Even though the commons areas were airy and had fans, with no A/C it was a bit uncomfortable with the inevitable sunburns. The room air conditioning units were unreliable. The management was responsive, articulate and helpful. The pool was refreshing and beautiful. The architecture was striking and the diving was exceptional. Overall, a very good choice.
Prospect Heights, IL, United States
Great place! We had 15 people, and had plenty of room. I highly recommend the cook service: great authentic Mexican food, and plenty of it. Since we all went scuba diving several times, the location next to the Sand Dollar Dive Shop was perfect. We watched the sun set every evening from the backyard.
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the privacy to enjoy your own pool, while still being close enough to enjoy the beach and all it had to offer (water sports, etc.).

Very nice well maintained villa. Location is awesome. We're going back again this year.
