About Patsy

Wilbert (my husband) was born in Cozumel and attended grade school there. He moved to California where he attended medical school, where we meet. We have lived in California since 1958 always returning to Cozumel for vacations and to visit family. Wilbert took me to Cozumel in 1968 and I fell in love with the island and the people there. In 2011 one of our 3 son's got married on the island. Many of Wilbert's family still reside on the island.

Patsy purchased this condo in 2008

Why Patsy chose Cozumel

A dream was fulfilled when we purchased our condo at Residencias Reef, we always wanted to own property in Cozumel . We love flying into Cozumel airport and feel as if we are returning home every time we come. Our three sons love to vacation as well there. We are building a lifetime of memories with Cozumel being the thread of all other experiences.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is warm and friendly and the view of the Caribbean never seems to lose excitement. We love our large private solarium for entertaining and sunbathing. The elevator is a real blessing when returning from MEGA our local grocery store. We love to cook and our kitchen allows me to prepare everything as if I was in my kitchen in California. We are happy to share our home to others~

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family of four (kids are 7 & 11) just returned from a wonderful week in Cozumel. This condo is even better than described. We've had many good experiences booking through VRBO but we've never encountered an owner who is so very attentive to every detail of the guests' overall experience. The condo is beautifully decorated and fully equiped with everything you could possibly need; it feels more like a permanent home than a rental property. Veronica and her sister Reyna are wonderful and kept the condo spotless; they even cooked a delicious traditional Mexican meal for us one night. The staff at Residencias Reef is super nice and always greeted us with a smile. They keep the property spotless and beautiful. Patsy keeps a binder filled with general island information, tips, activities and tons of restaurant recommendations in the condo, which was so helpful. We highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Cozumel.

Great Place to Get Away From It All!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Residencias Reef Resort. Close enough to the action if you wanted yet far enough away to catch some peace and quite. The condo was very clean with all the amenities if you wanted to cook, have a cocktail or sit and drink your coffee and enjoy the view. Pasty was very prompt in answering questions and filling us in with all the needed info to find our way around.

We rented a car so we could come and go as we wanted. Ate at many amazing restaurants, drove to the east-side of the island twice, and enjoyed the clean and quite beach at the condo. The snorkeling was amazing . The sunsets at the beach were incredible too.

Isabelle gave the most amazing massages on the upper terrace-best we have ever had!

The People of Cozumel, both at the condo, and elsewhere on the island could not have been any nicer and accommodating. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Amy; thank you so much for that glowing response! We appreciate all you mentioned, and are happy that you found the complex/condo relaxing and enjoyable. It is a very good example while people continue to return to the island! Please return soon and make sure to mention to me you are a return guest and of your glowing review, and I may have a surprise for you~ LOL!

We contemplated staying at Residencias Reef vs a resort and we were SO happy we chose RR. The condo was spacious and so clean it gleamed. Everything was very comfortable and we were in need of nothing. They even provide filtered water! The lady who came to do our cleaning every day (Conchita) was so nice and did an amazing job. There is a HUGE patio AND a giant roof top area for watching the sunsets and stars. We felt so spoiled there. The beach is a short walk (few minutes) from the condo and is a nice, quiet little slice of heaven with plenty of comfy chairs and it was always quiet and never crowded. The water was gentle and beautiful turquoise. The eve of our anniversary we had Raina come to make us a home cooked meal - the garlic shrimp - and it was the very best meal we had there. Absolutely delicious and such a treat!! We had our 21 month old daughter with us and she loved the beach, pools and ocean! There is plenty of activity nearby, such as Alberto's and Carlos and Charlie's if you're looking for a fun night out. We did some going out, some cooking at the condo, and visited several other beaches (Chankunaab - great snorkeling-, Punta Sur, and Playa Mia). We loved the flexibility we had here to eat when and what we wanted and take life at our own pace. We achieved true relaxation. If you're on the fence about staying here, book it. You won't regret it!!! Thanks for a wonderful stay; we will be back!!

Owner's Response: Tamara; what a beautiful review! I so appreciate you touched on a variety of points that are important to people who may be on the fence about traveling here. It is always important to confirm our choices in staff. Next time you will have to have a private massage on the deck by Isabelle who is an exceptional addition to everything else you mentioned! We will look forward to your return! Patsy

Beautiful place to stay for diving

This unit is very comfortable and user friendly. It has a spectacular view off of the deck, two spacious bedrooms, great wifi, well stocked kitchen and we enjoyed our stay very much. I particularly enjoyed the quiet, peaceful atmosphere. We will be back.

I will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was proved to be more than expected. We were 4 adults and had plenty of room; and the private solarium was an added bonus! Not a concern for not being "right on the beach" as you could see it, and walk right to it! A spectacular overview of the whole complex. I understand it was the only building of the 4-that had an elevator-so worked out great for one of our people!

Loved this property for two couples

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Cozumel about 15 times; always staying in our own time share. This year we decided to try the Reef residencias. This unit is a jackpot! Yes, it's in the furthest out building, but it has an elevator and great views and there is no bad buildings here! It's right next to the first heated pool and about 100 yards from the ocean. We saw an iguana in the tree eating flowers one day

The kitchen is fully stocked with all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you will need to chef up gourmet meals if you so choose. It comes with a third floor open area that is wonderful for lunch or star gazing. There is also a washer and dryer on the third floor that were a big help with our wet gear prior to leaving.

The bedrooms are spacious and both rooms are pretty equal so it's easy to share with both couples feeling like they have a good room.

The porch is spacious and a great place to enjoy your morning cuppa.

We will definitely consider coming back!

Residencias Reef is a gated community well known for its beautiful surroundings and ocean views. Far enough from town to be away from people and tourism-but close enough to enjoy the festivities. Commonly, people get hooked here in Cozumel, and continue to come back to the same location!
