About Al Dannerman

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 Ayden 6 Weeks. I own rental properties on the Island and the management company that is privileged to represent the rentals at El Cantil. 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.

Al Dannerman purchased this condo in 2007

Why Al Dannerman chose Cozumel

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

AWESOME LOCATION!!! Great Service Staff with Best Sunset, Sea & PDC Views!

  • 5 of 5

During my most recent visit to Cozumel from 5/4/13 to 5/15/13, I stayed in the unit. To be candid, as I write this review, I am still smiling from thinking about what a wonderful vacation we had!

El Cantil Condos Overview

The development consists of two buildings, El Cantil Sur (South) and El Cantil Norte (North), each of which 8 floors of condo units (with Norte also having a 9th floor where Prima Trattoria and its adjacent penthouse are located). The property's facilities (building hallways, stairwells, garages, etc. are very clean and in obviously good operational conditions.

The multiple pool, beach and dock areas are immaculately kept and fully provisioned with beach chairs, tables, palapas (palm frond umbrellas), scuba rinse tanks, outdoor showers...and best of all, a hotline up to Prima Trattoria for ordering drinks, snacks, lunch, etc. We were also able to bring our own cooler filled with cerveza, homemade margaritas, etc. and just made sure we had cans, plastic cups, etc. The drinks we ordered by the pool from Prima were all excellent (strong and well prepared) and food was a rating of decent+ for what we tried (sandwiches/burgers) poolside. Daily breakfast at Prima was included in our 11-day stay and it was very good every time!

Also, the snorkeling from right off the piers was really, really good (we saw many grouper, an octopus, barracudas and fish of all types)...AWESOME! :)

El Cantil Condos Location

SIMPLY AMAZING!!! There is no more convenient downtown San Miguel location to stay. Literally within 1-2 blocks of El Cantil are the Chedraui (less expensive but less "nice") grocery store and the Mega (quality -mostly- but a little more costly). There is also a mom & pop store for beer and snacks about 50 yards from El Cantil Norte's entrance. Restaurants are all so close as to be within 5-10 minutes walking distance or a short & cheap cab ride. Additionally, Prima Trattoria is on the top of El Cantil Norte and is definitely worth trying but we wound up walking a lot to many bars, restaurants, stores,, very, very close to everything!

El Cantil Condos Service Staff

I cannot say enough nice things about the wonderful El Cantil Staff! GREAT STAY AT EL CANTIL! We will be back

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

As always Claudia and Abraham took GREAT care of us. Ramon was not there this time. We consider the honeymoon suite our home away from home. The wait staff upstairs was very attentive as always. It was nice on a rainy morning to go up and have breakfast and not have to get out. This property is the only place we will stay from now on. You might consider buying a new coffee maker. There were two in the room but both were a challenge to get to work. Other than that, fabulous. I recommend you all the time on trip advisor. The heated pool was nice too. You will be hearing from us mid summer for our December trip.

Love this condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself enjoyed a week of peace and relaxation by the pool and beach at El Cantil. We stayed in 7A and couldn't have been happier. Very spaciuos condo with fabulous views. I stayed on the balcony ALOT. All of the staff were great. There to help with any situation.

It is a short walk to town and the grocery store is just across the street, Delicious food at Primas is available poolside, room, or restaurant. Reasonably priced as well. There are alot of good restaurants in town. Just take off walking.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this condo to friends. As a matter of fact, I already have.

We loved El Cantil. The view is spectacular. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. We could always count on Abram to greet us every morning when we would leave for the day.

Doris (our housekeeping lady) did a great job cleaning our condo daily.

We enjoyed the breakfast at Prima everyday as well.

I do feel the overall the condo need some attention to maintenance. I do realize this task must be "never ending" to keep things looking like a "5 Star" condo.

These are minor issues, but in my opinion, separate it from being a 5 star to more like a 4 star. It isn't always the ammentites that a place offers but also keeping it up that matters.

For example for inside units: our condo unit had the big sliding glass doors to the Ocean balcony. The screens on these windows were really bad, with holes etc. If it would have been in February when one might have wanted the doors open and using the screens it would have been bad with the holes.

The love seat in the Living Room area needed repai/The front piece needed to be glued back to the sofa. One of the vertical blinds in the bedroom was broken/needed repair. Kitchen clock needed a battery, it wasn't working when we arrived, we put in a battery for the unit! :)

No big deal, but the rented condo should be checked for minor repairs like these before the renters arrive.

Outside common spaces: In my opinion, Tile around the pool looked old? or need to be cleaned?

*** Pool was cleaned every day, that was great! Adequate lounger etc.

Ordered lunch at the pool from Prima-was tasty and was served quickly to us at the pool.

Ordered room service from Prima at dinner time-food was good as well and brought to us in a timely manner.

The garage area that you need to walk through was a bit depressing. I wish there was another entrance to the pool beside giong through the garage

Positive: Thanks for starting the ice maker and also making extra ice for our arrival! It made our Happy Hour a lot easier that first day not having to get ice across the street!

Loved the FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS to the states! That was great! All the extra beach/bath/jacuzzi towels! NICE TOUCH!

Albert, thanks for your promt e-mails when we would inquire about any of the rentals, that was great!

We ordered from Prima/ lunch/pool and unit/ dinner. Both times had great food and it was promt.

Bathroom pool/south building was DISGUSTING! dirty/no TP

Would we rent again? ABSOLUTELY

Have a wonderful day!

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at El Cantil. We stayed in 7A Casa Phoenix (4 bedroom) and 7A-N (1 bedroom) What beautiful condos!! Within walking distance from town so you don't need a rental car and two large groceries are right at your door. The views from the large balconies are wonderful! We could just want to sit there all day plus there is a hot tub right on your balcony! The rooms are large with each bedroom having a private bath and they are spotless!!! The staff always went over and beyond to ensure we had a great time. They were there to help with carrying your baggage to and from the room and always there to lend a helping hand carrying our dive equipment to the storage areas., Ramon and Claudia are friendly and will give directions, recommendations or just a friendly smile. Claudia quickly found me a dentist when I broke a crown. What great service!!! The infinity pool sits oceanfront and a great place to watch the sunset. We ate several times at Prima's and it was YUMMY and so convenient! We just love the wait staff there they definitely made our dining experience special. They also have pool service. Most dive shops will pick you up from El Cantil Pier or if you aren't a diver you can always jump in and snorkel. El Cantil has spoiled us we won't even consider staying anywhere else when in Cozumel. We will be back next year!!!

El Cantil - your Cozumel paradise destination!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at El Cantil for several years, in a variety of rooms, which have all been fantastic accommodations! Regardless of the size, they all have an ocean front balcony which we enjoy no matter what time of day. The view is fantastic!! The quality of furnishings is excellent, the rooms are spacious and the housekeeping is top notch. The beds and linens are very luxurious; the bedrooms and baths are especially spacious. Claudia and Ramon cheerfully welcome you, and are available to assist with anything in the units or provide island information to make sure your stay is perfect. The location is second to none, which is extremely important to us. We can walk up town anytime to enjoy the festivities, do some quick shopping and dine at the many wonderful restaurants. We have our favorites, both new and old, that offer any type of cuisine. Guido's, Kinta, Kondessa, Casa Mission are just a few. Jeannie's has great food & drinks all day long with a great view of the ocean and a nice beach area. We also enjoy the small local eateries. Don't forget Wynston on the upper level of El Cantil that offers a fantastic breakfast & lunch menu as well as fine dining in the evening. El Cantil is located only a short distance from 2 grocery/variety stores if you choose to prepare meals in your condo. The pool area is very spacious and clean. There is never a concern for lounges, chairs or tables being available. Diving and snorkeling are available right off the dock, with diving lockers available on site. You will love your stay at El Cantil!
