Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Experience one of Cozumel's most unique and beautiful getaways... Hacienda MonteCristo (HMC). Nestled in the quiet, safe, and exclusive residential Country Club Estates on the north side of the island, Hacienda MonteCristo is a true work of art. Its architecture of domes & arches is a brilliant reflection of the Mexican and Mediterranean style that has enchanted visitors from around the world.

HMC is conveniently located only a five minute ride from town & within walking distance of the Nicklaus-designed PGA golf course. Our sandy beach is one house away. It is literally a one minute walk. At the beach, kick up your feet & relax because it's one of the most private and quiet beaches the island has to offer. Perhaps splash around & have a drink at our beautiful fresh water pool beforehand.

Lazy mornings can be spent reading a book in a hammock on one of our private terraces, or sipping coffee while watching the cruise ships come in.

Casa Alegria offers 2 bedrooms each with private bathrooms and balconies. We have a fully equiped kitchen and full dining room. We also offer a separate living room and TV area.

We offer free WiFi so bring your laptops to keep in touch with folks back home, and we also offer free cellphone use for local island calls.

We offer Netflix as well as a DVD and book collection if you can spare the time. Our guests are usually too busy or tired from a fun-filled day.

Come experience a slice of paradise at Hacienda MonteCristo.

We now donate 10% of all proceeds to The Cozumel Humane Society.

About Angelica Romo

I am originally from Guadalajara and Aguascalientes, Mexico but have lived in NY, USA for most of my life. One of my favorite hobbies is scuba diving and I fell in love with Cozumel over a decade ago. There is no place I love more. I hope to retire early so that I can enjoy my vacation home year round.

Angelica Romo purchased this condo in 2005

Why Angelica Romo chose Cozumel Island

I chose my home Casa Alegria because I have been diving in several places but I've never felt more at home like I do in Cozumel. I love the island, the people, the food, and the culture. My home's location is just perfect, close enough to town but not too close. Quiet, peaceful, perfect.

What makes this condo unique

I love having a condo in HMC for many reasons. Its just so unique unlike the many cookie-cutter condos on the island. It has tons of character and charm. I used to stay in all-inclusive resorts but having a condo gives me the opportunity to cook and try new things and experience the island the way it should be. Now when I go to town, everyone knows me. Its a great feeling. A feeling of being home.

Casa Alegria

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from our vacation in Cozumel and I can't thank you enough for our stay in your beautiful home! As breathtaking as the photos online are, they don't do justice to the beauty of Casa Alegria.

Everything we could possibly want or need was thought of, from the fully stocked kitchen to the mini library and videos for the dvd player. The property managers were so helpful and the other residents friendly.

Frankly, I am cynical about what I read online being 'exaggerated' but Casa Alegria was MORE than everything I read. We will definitely be back! Thank you!!!

Nasty beach

  • 3 of 5

This condo is gorgeous and we were the only ones using the pool. However, the beach was a huge disappointment. It was strewn with rotting seaweed and the water was not crystal clear by any means. They said it was unusual, so hopefully things are different now.

North end condo

  • 3 of 5

The condo is spacious with two generous bedrooms upstairs. It is a walk up on the third floor with bedrooms on the fourth floor. There is no beach view, a partial ocean view from both bedrooms. The main room does not have a view, it looks down on pool, or straight out on another building. The beach is an easy walk, less than a block, however the water was brown during our entire stay. A dock built by a hotel south has ruined what was a beautiful beach. We went to other beaches that were crystal clear.

The complex is fairly small and quiet. The pool exactly like the photos and the staff did a nice job of keeping it clean. The mosquitos were very bad, so that we were not able to use the pool without a lot of bug spray.

The kitchen does not have a dishwasher or oven. There is a toaster oven and microwave. It is fine if you don't plan to do a lot of cooking. We found the beds to be very firm. Close to the golf course. We recommend a rental car or make arrangements in advance for taxis as there are none close. The property managers were very nice and helpful, responding quickly to issues. Highly recommend Bucannos, it is close with nice beach and excellent food.

Family Afair

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alegria was very nice, clean, organized and comfortable. Maria was very helpful in getting us situated. They even had a cell phone available for our use. We very much enjoyed our stay there and we intend to come back as soon as possible. It is a little out of the way but that is an advantage becasue you are not in the middle of all of the traffic and noise. The beach is really nice and there are not to many people there so it is kind of private. All in all I would say it is a very nice place relax and enjoy Cozumel and a very good value.

Tammy Wunsch and Family Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This made my 6th trip to the island, but my first stay at Casa Alegria. The condo is awesome and the property is secluded, but a quick trip into town. We ended up getting PADI certified ths trip so the DVD player came in handy for doing classroom work. We were able to gra a few things at the Mega and have breakfast together as a family each morning. The layout of the condo is very functional and felt like home away for home. I loved the view from the papala and the swing seats were a nice touch. The kids were able to go down and enjoy the beach which is right there. Thank you for sharing your home and we will be back.
