I came to Cozumel many years ago to dive and have been a resident here since the 80's. I still dive here and all over the world. My wife and I live in El Cantil full time, with our 2 children, Emilee and Ayden. My staff is onsite to attend to your needs and has an office downstairs. We hope you will come and experience El Cantil for your next Caribbean vacation. Then you will see why we call El Cantil home. We custom built Villa Elegancia to be our home and when we moved to the second tower into a larger place for my family, we made the decision to make this available as a very special luxury rental at El Cantil. We hope you enjoy your stay at our home.
Albert purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Albert chose Colonia Andres
We saw that this was the perfect vacation location in San Miguel, Cozumel Island. We have the best of all worlds living here. Close to town for entertainment and right on the ocean! Beach, Boat Dock, great snorkeling, sea horses, great night dive on our artificial reef in front, walking distance to everything. No car needed when you stay at El Cantil. Just the perfect place to be in Cozumel. 10 minutes from the Intenational AIrport, 2 minutes form the Cancun Ferry. On site management and rental office with bi lingual concierges.
What makes this Condo unique
Obviously, Diving is a biggie for me, as well, as being almost in town, I can walk anywhere with my kids. This is and always has been one of the safest family places to go in the world. The people are fantastic and accommodating. We really enjoy the new Plaza right across from the Condo and go their almost every night. Just a great place to relax on the terrace, or hit the clubs. All right here a stones throw from my unit

Much Better Than Average, But Not Perfect
First...general building and grounds information. The access to diving or even to the pool required taking the elevator to ground level, then following the hallway to a stairway leading down to the garage, then crossing the garage to a different stairway leading up to the pool and "beach" area. The beach is artificial. There is no direct access to the water from the beach. The whirlpool in the pool area did not work for the second straight year. I am unsure whether it ever works. The elevator did not work for most of one day, but was quickly repaired. The fan in the elevator was broken the entire time, making it feel very warm and stuffy. The building is very well located and in good condition. The grounds are well kept. The pathway to the snorkeling area is convenient and the adjacent snorkeling is better than average. The dock area is not as long as it should be which requires directional docking, sometimes impossible under even medium wind conditions. The concierge services offered are excellent.
The unit itself: It was clean throughout and as spacious as advertised. The maid service is excellent, although one day that the maid was supposed to be there she did not show. The concierge had a different maid clean the unit and replace the towels. The promised bath robes did not exist. The televisions worked well. We needed to replace the iPod station remote batteries. Even after that, the range to the station was less than three feet. The furniture is considerable farther away than that. The sliding doors to the very nice balcony do not seal well and rattle loudly when the wind is from the west or north. The sliding doors in the second master ocean side do not even lock. The balcony furniture is very worn, light weight, and slides noisily in the wind. There is one large, easily seen wall clock in the unit that is battery operated. It did not work, even when we replaced the battery. The refrigerator-freezer requires that the doors be pushed in order to close properly and even with a good push sometimes do not seal which sounds an alarm after a while. The "solid" wood doors in the bedrooms that adjoin the great room are not solid wood. They contain large opaque glass panels that offer poor sound insulation and do not offer darkness in the bedrooms when anyone in the great room desires light. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of pillows, and the linens as advertised. The great room furniture was comfortable.
Wonderful stay beautiful location
Great penthouse layout with excellent service. We will return!
Excellent unit excellent location
This is a very nice unit located on the top floor. The building is perfect for divers. There is a rinse tank down by the pool and most operators will pick you up at the dock. The building is walking distance from a bunch of good restaurants, old town, Starbucks, the grocery etc. There is no need to get a car. There is security 24/7 and a great restaruant on the property. We have stayed at El Cantil 3 times and the is the nicest unit we have found.
Fabulous property, great location, excellent experience. The condos in El Cantil are outstanding, all with beautiful waterfront views with the pool below your balcony. As SCUBA divers, we love the easy pickup at El Cantil's private pier, and it's great to take an easy walk into town for great dinners. With two supermarkets across the street, and a great restaurant on the property (Prima's), you may find yourself eating in as much as out. I can't understand why anyone would want to stay at an "All Inclusive" resort far from the action, when El Cantil truly has it all, at a great price, with a great breakfast included. We'll be back!
Absolutely will stay here again! Loved it!
There were 7 of us traveling together - This was an amazing condo! Couple of things: ice maker did not work, but they brought us ice when asked - there was a misunderstanding of having the help at the airport for transportation, but Albert offered to buy us drinks to make up for it...we never did go get the drinks - the phone didn't work to call the US, but Claudia fixed it quickly - the internet went down and nobody was available to tell because it was past 5 pm...it was working the next day - so overall...that was it for issues...nothing that couldn't be fixed - The maid service was excellent! She cleaned thoroughly every day - The beds were comfortable, the shower had perfect water pressure, the hot tub was clean and warm (light did not work by the hot tub), and channels on the TV were great! When in Cozumel, you must eat at Guido's!!!! We did, twice!!! We also went over the water to see the Tulum ruins and go to Xel-Ha water park, which was amazing! We did the Bar Hop Tour and the Fury Catamaran snorkleing adventure...both, we would do again! Everyone was friendly and helpful! I will be back next year and will stay at El Cantil again!
