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 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.

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.

Wonderful Week in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Cozumel traveling with my wife's parents. The condo was beautiful with two large master bedrooms, both with sliders to the spacious patio. The location in the building was perfect with steps from the patio down to the beach front. El Cantil's two building are very well maintained with friendly staff in abundance. We are looking forward to our next trip to Cozumel and hope we can get this same condo.

Nice Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family of four in April 2017. We have two boys (aged 14 and 16).

The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything we wanted for a relaxing vacation. Probably the best aspect of the condo is the convenient location. You can easily walk to grocery stores and good restaurants. The yellow shirted property managers / security were helpful and present. We felt safe. The beds were comfortable and we slept well.

A big thanks to Marcie and David for sharing their condo. This was an excellent VRBO experience.

Excellent layout and location.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful, luxuious, convenient

  • 5 of 5

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 love this place!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great for a family, ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

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!
