Thanksgiving Family Scuba 2019
Location was awesome to dive shop next door! Condo beautiful and well maintained. Loved watching the cruise ships come and go. Pool and hot tub were amazing. Didn’t have time for tennis but court looked immaculate.
Glad you enjoyed the place Watching the cruise sips is amazing !
Excellent property! Outstanding view!
This property is fantastic. The condominium itself was spotless. The property was very well kept. We liked the garbage and recycling bins in the stairwells of every floor. I emptied some cans into the recycling bin and a small amount of garbage into the garbage. I returned sometime later the same day to rid some garbage and the bins had already been emptied. There was always grounds staff working to maintain the cleanliness around the building. Security was a great help and very friendly.
The view from this property is amazing. You are literally a stones throw from the ocean. I’m sure if my shoulder was healthy I could’ve thrown a ball to the water. Although the cruise ships docked within view this did not take away from the amazing sunsets.
There was some street noise but nothing overly intrusive.
The pool and pool deck was fantastic. Huge !! Clean. Plenty of ( more than enough) chairs. Even though the temperature was 30+ degrees the hot tub was actually inviting. Yeah, I know. Weird. Everything about the property was top-shelf. I would recommend this stay to friends and family.
I would have liked to seen better communication from property representative and owner. We contacted the property manager upon arrival who unfortunately could not meet with us that afternoon. We received no more calls or texts for the duration of our stay. Nor did the owner check in to see if we had any issues or questions.
There was a “tip” container for the housekeeper. We were unsure if a housekeeper was to come by daily. Of course we had no issue at all cleaning up after ourselves and doing our own laundry. We were just unsure of this issue. A housekeeper never did come by so we wondered, why the tip jar? Again, some communication would have maybe addressed this question.
Overall, apart from a few unanswered questions, this was an excellent property.
If I win the lottery I’ll put in an offer :)
Six Weeks of a Pampered Lifestyle
This was our second consecutive year at Condo Palmar in Cozumel, staying six weeks this year. This was our first time staying in condo 8D owned by Terry Benjamin and his wife. We met Terry last year while staying in a different unit. He is a very delightful guy and I feel like we have become good friends in a very short time.
The condo is beautiful, and they just did a complete remodel of both bathrooms and some upgrades to the kitchen. We especially enjoyed being on the top floor, making it much quieter. Also, it makes for a spectacular view.
We are avid tennis players and scuba divers. So Palmar is the perfect place for us. The complex has one, just recently resurfaced, beautiful tennis court and is only a five minute walk to Roberta's Scuba Shack, our favorite dive center on the island.
Alex, the property management employee, is very friendly, efficient, and responsive in addressing any issues and making sure everything is perfect for our stay.
My wife and I, being retired, travel 40% of the year. A lot of trips are to dive, others to hike and explore other countries. But Cozumel keeps drawing us back. The ease of getting there and having such a great place to stay at Palmar makes the decision as to where to go very simple. Not only is Terry's unit 8D perfect but also the entire complex is very well maintained. The only negative I can give it is that at the time of the year that we go the pool is quite cold. It is a huge swimming pool and it would cost a fortune to heat. But the hottub is great to warm up again! We have already booked for next year as it has become an annual trip for us.
If you are in to beaches, Palmar is not the place to stay. However, there is great snorkeling directly across the street. We love it because it is not a resort. It is very quiet and peaceful. Give it a try, I'm convinced you will love it.
Thanks for your wonderful review Chad. It was a total pleasure to have to stay in our place. And, you were most helpful in working with staff to finish up a few little details on the remodel. Look forward to having you back this coming December. Happy travels.
Palmar Condo 8D - Beautiful, Fantastic Location, Great Diving
We enjoyed staying at Terry’s condo at Palmar. Terry has the top floor #8D at this beautiful complex. It’s perfectly situated nearby the international cruise terminal and has a fantastic view. It’s nice to see the lights of the ships come in the early morning and leave in the evening. Makes for peaceful evenings near shopping and restaurants. Terry’s condo is super clean, large kitchen, 2 large bedrooms with full baths, and great wifi service. Scuba with Mario over at Tikila’s rents tanks for $10 if your scuba certified, so good for some afternoon exercise. The back entrance to Palmar over by the pool means you can walk over to the water in 5 mins for a swim and shower in less than an hour. Palmar’s got a rinse area for gear by the showers too. Never tire of going back to Palmar as this is probably our 12th time staying there over the last 7 years. You can see the area from the balcony where cruise ships drop snorklers. If you like to snorkle you can walk to the same location and do it for free. There’s even a fresh water shower there and stairs for easy entrance into the water. Afterwards you can have appetizers and a margarita from Tikila’s while you watch the sunset. The food there is good too, but we usually buy groceries at the local Mega, Chedraui, or Soriana’s grocery stores.
So glad you had a great time in Coz enjoyed the condo.....again. It really lets me know we are making folks happy when the come back. See ya again soon.
About Terry Benjamin
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.
Terry Benjamin purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Terry Benjamin chose Cozumel
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.
