My husband and I stayed here the last week of September. Beautiful unless the hotel next door is doing demo from early morning until after 10pm. I realize this is probably too late for most but until Nov 15 I would not recommend . Please read reviews for Secrets Aura next door and you will see the real facts. Love Cozumel and have visited five times before but would have chose elsewhere if we would have known.

We rented unit 5240 with Fulvio. The unit was amazing. It was fully furnished with everything you could need on vacation. The balcony overlooked the ocean and pool. The kitchen was very nice (including drinkable water). The condo came with a private parking spot. The surrounding area felt very safe, especially with the attended gate in the front. The unit was very close (less than 5 minute walk) to the pier for dive boat pickup. That means this unit is ideal for a dive trip. The drive to town is an easy 15 minutes, but there are a few restaurants that are walking distance. Fulvio was very prompt and attentive. We had an issue with the room safe (which was completely our fault). Fulvio responded right away and got the issue resolved very quickly. If you're going to rent a condo in Cozumel, get with Fulvio. Would rent again.

Room Tip: unit 6240 is fantastic

We rented two larger suites for 20 people (8 adults, 12 kids) in April, 2015. Nice price, plenty of room, and the owner was accommodating. The private beach and the two pools were ideal for our group. The condos are quiet and within walking distance of the beach clubs, but we had a much better time when we stayed away from the cruise ship locations. A car is needed to get around the island from here, but it was not an issue. We primarily ate dinners at the condo since the island has significantly less activity after the cruise ships depart in the evening, so the full kitchens were convenient.

Room Tip: Higher floors with access to the roof have nice views and more open area.

Booked our condo on VRBO. HUGE 1 bedroom with an oceanview. Unit included everything we needed but beyond the unit the association was more than we could have hoped. Two pools, both of which were warm and clean. We were always able to find a spot on the beach. Never seems busy. Just steps from the dock to go on water tours. The only thing to be aware of is the walk into the ocean is very rocky and may not be the best for kids. We ended up walking a few extra steps to the dock and entering and exiting the water from there. Much safer and a good spot to see some fish.

We have stayed at Residencias Reef numerous times because it was quiet and uncrowded and away from the rowdy scene. Thanks to the Aura Hotel next door having loud parties on the beach the quiet is gone. Most of the music stops around 10:30 but you have to listen to it for a couple of hours. One night the noise went on until around midnight. Lots of people yelling etc. My daughter saw a nude woman walking on the patio of that hotel.

Beyond that, the place is enjoyable. The condos are privately owned so each is different. Building 1 is closest to the beach. Not all of the condos have a water view, so be sure to find out. We met a lot of very friendly people at the pool. Usually lots of fish to see if you snorkel near the pier. Dive Palancar offers good boat snorkeling tours for about $35 pp and they have a desk along the beach at the Aura Hotel. Sign up early as they fill up.
