"Eight of us (ages 53-69) just returned from another glorious week in Cozumel! This was our second stay at Villa Coronado (we went there February 2014 and 2015). First of all, the villa is located in a very quiet and convenient part of the island, far enough away from the cruise ship crowd, yet within walking distance of one of the best places around, The Money Bar. The home has all of the amenities that one would want. The bedrooms and ensuite baths are large and comfortable, providing four couples privacy. The pool and grounds are clean and maintained. The home itself is very clean and the housekeepers do a wonderful job every other day, yet they do not get in your way. The property managers, Jimmy and Laurie, are easily accessible and take care of anything that might need to be addressed, even down to batteries in remotes. The villa has whole-house purified water, which is a huge plus! Some of the prettiest sunsets can be seen from the palapa on top of the structure...a nice place to go for some alone time or to just enjoy the view. We rented two cars because we had so much scuba equipment, but realistically you could get by with just taking taxis to the main part of the island for dinners, etc. This villa is also within a short distance to Chankanaab Park, and if you have not visited, you might want to spend a day there. There is a good educational tour about the Mayan culture, also there are massages available, a nice beach area, bar service, even the new SeaTrek Helmet diving for people who want to experience underwater but are afraid to do the real thing (like me). At the extreme end of the island, not far from Villa Coronado, is Bob Marley's which is a fun place to just go hang out and watch the surf. If you are interested in scuba diving or taking a "Discover Diving" course, we found the Scuba Du group out of the El Presidente Resort not far from the villa to be reputable and reasonable. Our divers have used them both times we have visited. All in all, we only have positive things to say about our stays at Villa Coronado, and are already talking about going back in February 2016! There is some comfort in being in a familiar place. Both years we have used an in-home chef for preparing a special birthday celebration meal. All other nights, though, we liked to venture into town and choose a restaurant. We have yet to be disappointed. All 8 of us highly recommend the Villa Coronado and we are so glad we found it on VRBO!"
