Cozumel Island condo description

A recent guest said “it was like staying in a Presidential Suite at a 5 star hotel.” All reviews rave about the place. Read them!

• Top floor(8th) of new building-no noise above
• 1900 Sq. Ft. on 1 floor
• Floor to ceiling, wall to wall windows
35 Foot long balcony overlooks ocean
• King Bed, Queen Bed & Queen pullout
• High speed Wifi, free US/Canada calls both directions
•Snorkeling & Scuba across the street
•Great pool, Hot Tub, Tennis Courts & Gym
•24/7 Security

Our 1900 sq. ft. condo is located on the top floor of an elegant 8 story building that has just been completed----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 has wall to wall, floor to ceiling glass leading out onto a 35 ft. long deck with a magnificent view of the ocean! Look at the pictures. And, go to link to see more pictures/video of Palmar complex.

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 as a warm up before diving the deeper reefs. While diving and snorkeling we have seen eels and lobsters in the coral formations just below our place as well of thousands of fish large and small.

A beautiful very large private pool has a huge tiled area surrounding it with chairs, A Palmar residents holds yoga classes there twice week you can go to. The cabanas, shaded 'beds' and pool side wifi makes it a place you can hag out for hours and a hot tub offers a great place to watch sunsets. 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 local meet people, hang out and watch the activity on the ocean. A private 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 also right in the heart of lots of activity in the south hotel district. You can walk across the street to go snorkeling or to the dive shop and you have quick access to restaurants and shops, including a 24 hr convenience store 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 above' 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. It is truly a magical place to stay.

You might want to plan your day so you can enjoy the beach, water or town during the day & be home to enjoy watching the sunset from the large balcony which is where we find ourselves spending most of our time. Mornings are glorious......breakfast on the balcony while looking down into the incredible water is something we never tire of.

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 knocks down 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 more cleaning 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 coach you about things you want to know about.........things to do, places to shop, restaurants, etc.

As you can tell by reading this we intend to make 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.

I love talking about Cozumel so feel free to call me with questions.

                      Palmar is in the 'south' hotel district. Lots of new shops, restaurants, bars, etc in the area. All within 5 minute walk.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Cathy and I live in Colorado and LOVE Cozumel. She is an attorney and I am the Director of a human service agency. After visiting Cozumel for 25 years we were fortunate enough to buy a truly spectular condo that we hope to spend more time in as the years pass.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cozumel Island:
                      Palmar is a first class property so it is a wonderful place to spend time when you are not out and about. Cozumel is a very relaxed, laid back place to be and has some of the best diving in the world. We love the specific area in which our place is located. As you can see in photos the cruise ships come and go in front of our place. Those floating cities create a romantic magic that is a source of entertainment in the morning when they arrive and even more so when they depart...at sunset...lit from stem to stern. Plus, there is a lot of small boat activity in the waters below our place that we find entertaining. We chose to be on the 8th floor because it provides a front row seat to an ocean full of activity. We also chose this location because we did not want to be too close to town. Being in the 'south' hotel district means you are closer to the really great beaches which are a few miles south of town. If you are in the 'north' hotel district you have to drive thru town to get to the best beaches which can take an extra 15-20 min. Last but not least, the owners/managers of Palmar are totally committed to making Palmar a gem on the island. As you will see in guest reviews the staff is very friendly and helpful and when issues crop up are very responsive to us and to our guests.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Most people living in Palmar are year around residents are are successful business people on the island. It is a great mix of Anglos and Mexicans which makes it feel a less touristy. This has been a wonderful plus for us and something that is impossible to get in a hotel full of tourists.
