Welcome to Casa de Sol y Luna, at El Cantil—the perfect blend of convenience and privacy, overlooking the stunning blue waters of the Caribbean! The 1st floor location provides the convenience of being only steps from beach, multi-tiered infinity pool (heated!) and dive dock. The adjacent lush, tropical gardens, elevated terrace, and location (not directly poolside), insures your privacy. The condo features 2 large master suites, each with king bed, private bath, walk-in closet, ocean views, and its own sliding glass door entry to the 45' private terrace with steps directly to the beach, pool and dive dock. This 'home away from home' is beautifully appointed with artwork collected by the owners from their travels. Enjoy the sunsets, changing colors of the sea, and boat traffic while relaxing on the terrace, in the living room, eating in the dining area or preparing meals in the fully equipped kitchen. All overlook the ocean!

El Cantil Condominums is perfectly located! A 1/2 mile south of the Plaza and Ferry dock, it's a short walk to grocery stores, shopping and restaurants, or an inexpensive taxi ride to destinations outside the main tourist area. If flying into Cozumel, you will need to purchase a voucher at the airport for transportation to El Cantil (due to taxi and collectivo union restrictions, transportation must be provided by airport transfer services). When you arrive at El Cantil the doorman will assist you with your luggage to your unit. As soon as possible after your arrival, a staff member of Caribbean Beach Properties will stop by to make sure you have arrived and will answer any questions you might have. They will also periodically check in on you. There are 24-hour doormen for your assistance and security. All questions about what to do, where to go, renting vehicles, etc. can be answered by our management staff. If you would like a meal service, the office can arrange a meal plan for your stay with a local chef.
If desired, please let us know and we'll provide a list of recommended restaurants. If you are divers and would like dive shop recommendations, we would be glad to send you contact information.
The property description and pictures are accurate. Grocery stores are across the street and easy access to restaurants, dive outfits pick you up at the dock on the property. I was a little concerned about street noise initially but the layout of the condo is such that you cannot hear any traffic at night. It is a beautiful condo and is decorated and stocked with all the right stuff. (some of the knives need to be sharpened) Being on the street level is a real plus here as street level condos have their own access directly to the pool/ocean from the balcony. This part of Cozumel has mostly rock along the shore but the dock has a ladder you can climb into/out of the water. The property has sandy areas with chairs/umbrellas but not an actual sand beach in case you require that. (the rocks make for very interesting snorkeling in 5-15 foot of water with lots of sea life) The owner was available and helpful and the property manager "Alex" spoke great english and was very helpful multiple times. He called to make sure we got settled in and made sure we knew how to contact him on his cell phone. The condo has two landlines, one phone is a U.S. based phone and the other is a Cozumel phone in case you are concerned about cellular billing problems. There is a lot of information for guests in a ring binder provided at the condo such as snorkel locations, restaurants, maps etc. The layout with 2 masters was great for our family of 4. My wife says this is her favorite condo out of the many we have rented over the years. If we return to Cozumel, we will definitely stay here again. If you rent here, take their advice on restaurants, we did and we were not disappointed. Le Chef, Kondessa, Blue Angel---all good.
Exactly as described and more. Yes, on a busy street along the front but when you are in this condo you can't stay away from the peace and beauty of the back of the unit; the view, the pool, the snorkeling and the dive outfit (Blue XT!) that picks you up right at the building. Meanwhile the busy street side has the supermarket access and walk-ablility to The Square with the shops and restaurants and the ferry to Playa delCarmen. Sparkling clean, superb concierge service. We were there with 2 teenage daughters who shared a ginormous bed perfectly. And it's true what they say about Cozumel and the world class diving in the National Park protected area Palancar Reef etc.
We have been to Cozumel several times, but this was out first stay at El Cantil. This stay really raised the bar, as it will be hard to top. The unit is perfectly located so you don't have to drive or take a taxi everywhere. Also being on the ground floor makes it even more convenient. This casa is beautifully decorated and very spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked for everything you need. The floor plan is perfect for two couples because there are two master suites, each with a huge bathroom. The staff at El Cantil were friendly and helpful. The infinity pool is fabulous. After diving every day we would retreat to the pool for refreshments and beautiful sunsets. Definitely recommend and look forward to returning.
We had a terrific time at El Cantil over spring break last week! Location is perfect with shopping across the street, restaurants within walking distance (try Local 707), and the ocean just steps from the condo. Daily maid service was terrific (they even washed the dishes for us) so the place was always spotless. We loved snorkeling by the condo, swimming in the infinity pool, and hanging out on the deck. Spent a day at Mr Sanchos beach club ($20 cab ride each way) and our boys (ages 17 and 11) loved it! Definitely got our money's worth out of the all inclusive rates, also paid extra for the aqua park which they loved. Our oldest rented a jet ski and had a blast, they also offer parasailing when the wind dies down. We watched NCAA Basketball at Kelleys Bar (outside seating and 8 TV screens) and had a great dinner at Kondesa. No need for a car as cabs will take you everywhere. We did do a day trip to Chichen Itza and Tulum so we rented a car for the day in PDC, cost was around $100 with the insurance (a must!). And finally, we did a day of snorkeling out in the Marine Park which was absolutely fantastic. We saw huge starfish, electric eels, see turtles, eagle rays, and a pretty good size nurse shark. Next time we come back we plan to be SCUBA certified!
We stayed for a week with another couple and couldn’t be happier with the property. It’s spacious and beautifully decorated. The only “complaint” we have about the condo is how old and difficult to open the screen doors are for the deck/balcony. It’s definitely time to replace those. Certainly didn’t ruin our stay, but it was a challenge to quietly open the screens without calling attention to yourself. We also struggled with the key cards – perhaps user error, but not easy to open the door on the first try. The condo is on the main level and offers easy access to the beach and pool. Other floors have to go through the parking garage to get to the pool and beach. The office staff – especially Claudia – were wonderful. So helpful and welcoming. We were a little bit frustrated with the cleaning staff. Not being early risers and getting out of the condo early, we requested the cleaning staff to come after 12:00. Most mornings, she showed up at 10:30 and when we asked that she come back in the afternoon, she was back at 11:30. The condo is conveniently located across the street from Chedraui – a store which offers everything from bread and eggs to bolts of fabric. Close to downtown and easily within walking distance of many wonderful restaurants. If we come back with another couple again, we would be sure to return to El Cantil.
Sparkling clean, super spacious and gorgeously decorated. Perfect setup for two couples- identical master suites separated by the main living area. Huge balcony that is steps away from pool or ocean with a beautiful view, but still private. You can hang out at pool or oceanfront and get to your condo for a beer or the bathroom in seconds. Convenient location - walk to groceries, dozens of bars/restaurants, shopping, etc. Employees super nice. Fabulous sunsets.
Cozumel is located just east of the Yucatan penisula and offers world-class scuba diving, endless white sand beaches and fabulous restaurants and entertainment. With only a 35-minute ferry ride to the mainland, you can visit the incredible Mayan ruins of Tulum, take a bus to Chichen Itza, or simply visit the beautiful seaside town of Playa del Carmen.
