Beautiful Beachfront Villa

  • 5 of 5

Chango Villa provided an amazing vacation for me and my extended family. The location is perfect, the home is magnificent, and the view is unbelievable. I truly cannot imagine a better venue for my family and friends. We absolutely took advantage of all of the amenities. We loved that snorkels, fins, bikes, paddle boards and kayaks are all made available, by the owner, for the guests to use during their stay. When we have rented homes in the past, we have had go and rent, or even buy, equipment and gear. Having it all available was an added bonus.

We loved the views, from every room and every corner of the property! The roof top patio provided a pristine place to have a quiet cup of coffee, a cocktail at sunset....or simply lovely place to rest, read or soak in the sun... at any point in the day. The pool was never empty....from dawn until after dark...we had people swimming, floating and enjoying all that Chango Villa had to offer!

We loved Lara and Albino....and their darling children. They added to the entire Cozumel experience. Chango Villa is a very special place and we will never forget our stay...everyone in our group would highly recommend it to anyone and we will all definitely be back!!!

Great location, plenty of space, needed more amenities!

  • 4 of 5

Large gathering in Cozumel, 5 families including grandparents, parents & children. Loved being on the beach, close to resorts & restaurants. Also loved the sunsets from the roof-WOW!

Appreciated each room had own bathroom; however would have liked at least 1 bathtub. Also basic amenities would be expected at the price of the rental (soap, shampoo, lotion). Appreciated 2 kitchens & daily cleaning; needed at least 1 dishwashing machine, as well as basic seasonings & hot mitts! Appreciated swimming pool; would have used it if it was (even slightly) was COLD!

We purchased some condiments for kitchen & toys for beach/pool, left them there...hopefully those will be available for future guests.

Staff was helpful, respectful & thorough, & pleasant.

Unfortunately the Villa was noisy, one could hear other members of the party...something to be aware of if light sleeper.

Extraordinary Chango Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Whether you are a connoisseur of world travel, or looking for a first time family/friends adventure in a tropical paradise -- do not miss out on Chango Villa, in Cozumel, Mexico! If you've done your homework prior to reading this review you would have discovered many 5-star reviews by a variety of Chango guests. Believe them - they are all 100% accurate! The accommodations are ideal for family vacations or a multiple friends/couples get-away, offering every possible amenity as well as ideal privacy. Enjoy the delectable meal service for a true destination vacation experience that offers native cuisine, prepared and served onsite. Bask in the sunshine of the spacious back courtyard; play in the infinity pool; and relish the sensation of sand between your toes on the private beach. The colors of Chango Villa are nothing less than awe-inspiring! From the lovely décor of the villa itself to the incredible scenic views, the vibrant colors, along with gentle breezes whispering through the fronds of the surrounding palm trees will soothe, relax and rejuvenate. From sunrise, to sunset, to moon glow - you will revel in all that is Chango Villa. Your comfort and pleasure is their goal - and they do it well. The daily caretakers of the villa are phenomenal - truly the nicest, most courteous people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They are so non-intrusive you'll barely realize they're there, yet they will make you feel very well cared for during your stay. This specific vacation was for the purpose of bringing all of my children & grandchildren together for a destination family vacation. My kids/grandkids ranged in ages from 5 years to 40+ (a group of 11 total) and each one of us had an absolute blast in a truly lovely, very secure setting! The villa is absolutely ideal for a group of this size. In summary, I am an average middle class person who has experienced travel to various destinations around the world and have enjoyed numerous 5-star hotels, or exotic resorts. No one does it better Chango Villa -- no one!! And no one is more pleasurable to work with, or more service oriented than Brian, the owner! Don't miss this experience, people!! It is everything I have described and more. A part of my heart will always remain at Chango Villa! It would be my extreme pleasure to one day return. Thank you Chango for an incredible vacation experience!

Extraordinary Property and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 11 (including one teen and two under 10) stayed at Chango Villa for a week in February 2017. We have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience! The villa itself is extraordinary -- exquisitely designed and perfectly self-contained. The layout, with four identical ocean-view bedrooms on the second floor, was perfect. The water filtration system and bottled water eliminated any concern about Montezuma's revenge. The location is also fantastic. We could walk to the nearby beach clubs to the south in less than five minutes (we especially liked Paradise Beach), although we were mostly content to simply stay at the villa itself, with its comforts and privacy. The palm trees framing the beach and the superlative ocean view gave us the feeling that we had the entire island to ourselves. We opted for the chef service, which was fabulous -- the food was delicious, the presentation was beautiful, and the convenience of not having to prepare or clean up made this a true vacation! Gabby was even willing to share some of her recipes! The housekeeping and caretaking team were great, and they were never a disruption. A special word of thanks to Jessica, the concierge, who helped us with many questions over the months leading up to our trip. And Brian, the owner, was very helpful and easy to work with. All in all, our time at Chango Villa was a dream vacation, and we'd go back in a heartbeat!

This was a family vacation consisting of 5 couples and 3 young men. The set up was perfect for everyone. Of particular note is the cook and her staff. They were always on time, friendly and the food was delicious. The meal plan is highly recommended by this group. The villa's floorplan is ideal for a multi-family retreat and the lower floor was perfect for the 3 young men, giving the couples privacy. The ensuite bedrooms are great. The outdoor entertaining deck and pool area, along with the private beach area were perfect, with the exception of the slippery tile floors on the patio and mid-floor area. We used the towels to make a safe transition from the pool deck to the covered patio and indoors. Having both outside and inside stairs to the upper level was also a plus. That way you didn't have spend much time on the slippery floor to get to your room.

A few recommendations would be: place 3 bath towels in the bathrooms, add some hooks to the baths or bedrooms for suits and towels to dry. Some overhead fans on the outside patio would be a big plus. Warn guests that on days the cruise ships are in port, it gets very busy in front of the villa. Water temperatures in the baths were erratic.

Overall, this villa far exceeded our expectations and worked perfectly for this group. We are actually considering booking it again in a few years.
