About Dave Jenkins

I first came to Cozumel to escape the winter in Canada, play in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean and do some diving, as I had heard that the diving here was spectacular. The second year that I came here to vacation, I purchased the condo because I had fallen in love with the people, the weather and the ocean. I met my wife Lupita here, and we have two children Kyle and Dominique Jenkins. We live here on the island full time. Lupita has been on the island for more than 15 years and so she knows pretty much where to find everything, and we will be available to help with any problems that are encountered, or to help with setting you up with activities or recommending a good restaurant.

Dave Jenkins purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dave Jenkins chose Quintana Roo

We purchased the condo at Residencias

Reef because it is in our opinion the best condos on the island in the best location. Located on beautiful Paradise beach, serene, crystal clear warm caribbean waters and get picked up in front of the condos for a 10 minute boat ride to some of the best diving in the world.

What makes this condo unique

The condos are a gated community with 24 hour security. Four three story buildings, on a beautifully landscaped property with an exceptional beach. The island is the safest place in Mexico, and the Mexican presidents use the island as a vaction getaway.

Fall In Love! CONDO (8270)
average rating of 4.902439 based on 41 reviews

8270 beautifully appointed and an excellent value, 5 stars!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been diving in Cozumel for over 10 years, stayed at about 8 different places and this was by far our most relaxing and enjoyable stay! Dave and Lupita have thought of everything when appointing their "Fall in Love Condo" and we already want to book our next stay.

I am a chef and conservation scuba diver and I was pleased to find everything and more in the gorgeous kitchen: full sized, new appliances, sharp santoku knives, a good blender for green smoothies, even tupperware.

The tasteful decor, warm colored tones and ocean themed local art made us feel instantly at home, calm and happy. The unit is so well designed and A/C so efficient that we could adjust it to the warmest setting (30° C) and only run it for a few hours a day and it would be comfortable for the remaining time. Access to the rooftop solarium allowed for private yoga in the early morning and sunbathing, although the two clean pools were never crowded.

The balcony for 8270 offered a nice view of pool and ocean, perfect for coffee in the morning and drinks in the afternoon without feeling hot, as it's shaded until 2:30. Also, I'd feel comfortable for storm season there. There was one brief bout of unseasonably rough weather, and while others were battening down the hatches in the 5000-6000 buildings, we watched the storm comfortably from our balcony because it's nicely protected.

We were pleased to find many thoughtful touches, like thick, soft beach towels, many sizes of coolers, snorkel gear, pool toys, and even chairs for a beach trip.

We always dive with Papa Hogs and pick up at the Residencias/ Secrets dock greatly reduced boat time to our favorite reefs in the south, Palancar and Columbia. The drive into El Centro is about 12 km, so it's very convenient to rent a car from Rentadora Isis upon arrival. For just 35 bucks a day we got a VW-Gol with taxes and insurance included. With a car or scooter it's a quick trip for favorite eats like Relleños at La Choza, Pastores at Los Seras, Empeñadas at Del Sur and the new Italian place opposite Villablanca, 'That's Amore', has excellent seafood and best ever Tiramisu.

Chedraui and Mega have anything you'd want to cook, though Dave and Lupita have graciously provided plenty of staples to get on with including coffee, sugar, a few spices, a few beers and sodas and plenty of drinking water in a lovely decanter.

If you're searching for the perfect vacation in Cozumel that checks off all of the boxes, LOOK NO FURTHER!!

Fantastic ! Great spot, perfect for divers

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at condo Kydove #8270 for 2 weeks, arriving on July 14th. Spacious 1 bedroom condo, fully equiped, with great view of the ocean. 2 pools (one with wi-fi), impressive beach and best of all, beach chairs and palapas only for Residencias Reef guests. for divers, a 2 minute walk to the dock, 15-20 minutes boat ride and you're there; after your dive, you can rince gears in the sink specialy for that use on site.

we would recommend this place, a must in Cozumel

A big thank you to Lupita and Dave, for our best vacation in years!

Beautiful Condo with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo late and everyone was really accommodating. We found the place to be so comfortable,safe, and homey. This is a place you could stay in for months. It has absolutely everything you need and it is beautiful. The location is away from the crowds, with great snorkeling at the beach, just steps away. When we booked, we didn't think we would use the pool but we were in it every night. It was refreshing and just an added bonus to the amazing bay that the condo sits on. We came to Cozumel for the scuba diving and we were so thrilled that the diving company (Dive with Martin- we highly recommend), that we always dive with, picked us up at the pier that was only a three minute walk from our room. The condo owner was also exceptionally accommodating to a request that we made. He was easy-going and really great to book with.

Great location on the most beautiful beach on the Island

  • 5 of 5

we loved the condo. It was tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. the location is far enough out of town to give you peace and privacy, with beach bars within short walking distance and a few more within a short drive. There is nice long pier out front for diving and snorkeling pickups. The grounds of the condo complex are always well maintained and the security guards are very friendly and helpful and make you feel safe. The condo manager is helpful and readily available. The owners Dave & Lupita are wonderful to deal with. The two beautiful pools are a nice alternative to the white sand beach which is a few steps from the condo. we enjoyed gorgeous sunsets every night. We booked this condo for the month of January. 2017. we loved it so much we already booked for a month next year. There 2 great supermarkets where you can find anything you need and lots of great restaurants to enjoy your vacation.

Best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is great! It is well stocked with pretty much everything you need to enjoy a beautiful, relaxing stay on Cozumel! It is just a quick trip via taxi to town or to the south end of the island. We absolutely loved staying here. Just make sure you bring plenty of pesos.. The taxi drivers definitely take advantage of tourists with only USD on hand. The condo has a great beach front, and if you want to cruise the beach bar scene, that's only a walk south down the beach. We never did venture north except to snorkel in front of Secrets a little. Thanks Dave for offering up a great place to stay !

Residencias Reef is Cozumels premier low rise Condominium development located on beautiful Paradise beach on the leeward side of Cozumel Island. The resort is in a serene setting outside of the main town of San Miguel, and provides access to some of the best scuba diving in the world at world famous Palancar Reef. Dive operators will pick you up at the dock right in front of the condos, and Palancar is a short 10 minute boat ride to the South. There is good snorkeling right in front of the condos, and you can beach comb for many miles down the pristine white sand beaches. Most of the beach clubs that exist on the island are directly South of the condos, which is testament to the beauty of the area. You can access all of these beach clubs by simply strolling down the beach along the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.
