About the property

Breathtaking ocean view from terrace with private hot tub.

Welcome to Casa Tropical. Unit 4CS at the El Cantil luxury condominium resort in Cozumel.

The first thing you will notice when you enter our unit is the breath taking ocean view. You will see that view from every portion of the living, dining and kitchen area through the 64 foot wrap around terrace. Two of the bedrooms have sliding glass doors to walk out to the terrace. On the terrace you will find a private hot tub, lounges, tables and chairs.

You will remember forever the panoramic view of the blue turquoise water with Playa del Carmen in the distance. The terrace is west facing for unforgettable sunsets. Watch cruise ships go by, as well as the dive, fishing and other excursion boats that you will see all day. Watch the cruise ships come in with your morning coffee, and watch them leave with your evening glass of wine (perhaps while relaxing in your private hot tub).

Our unit footprint (3,100 square feet) was originally intended to be a four bedroom condo. Instead it was custom built as a three bedroom unit. Accordingly, it is the largest three bedroom, and the only three bedroom corner unit, in the building. As a result the bedrooms are extra large with walk in closets and extra sized full en-suite bathrooms. The kitchen has a sliding glass door (originally intended for the fourth bedroom) allowing full unit cross ventilation.

In addition there is a 1/2 bath in the living area, as well as a wet bar and wine cooler. There is a Kohler Body Spa tub in the master bathroom. Plus the following; Fully furnished GE kitchen with granite counter tops, filtered city water with 3 stage ultra violet purification, air conditioning individually controlled by room, keypad entry door lock and in-room safes. The beds all have Sealy True Form mattresses. Hair dryers in each bathroom, iron and ironing board. Dish network TV (with US stations including HBO, ShowTime, Stars, CNN etc), DSL Wi-Fi, and VOIP phone for free calls to the US. Flat screen TV's in each bedroom, and living room (Smart TV that connects to Netflix).

Rate includes twice-weekly maid service, 24 hour security doorman, and local professional property management for quick response to any needs that may arise.

El Cantil is the only luxury condo resort near town. You will not need a car or even taxis to visit the best restaurants, entertainment and shops. If you want to make your own meals, there is a full grocery store directly across the street, and a superstore (Walmart style) two blocks away.

But at the risk of repeating ... you won't believe the view ... and might not want to ever leave the terrace. But if you do ... right downstairs, without leaving the property, is an infinity pool and beach with palapas and lounge chairs.

If you are a scuba diver you can be assured that the resort is diver friendly (we are ... and that's why we own here). The on site dock allows you to be picked up by any dive operator on the island. And when you return, only steps from the dock is a rinse tank and covered, ventilated, locked storage. You won't have to drag your gear back to the unit, and it will be dry by the next morning.

Relax on site or explore the island. Car rentals to do your own island tour are available. Or hire a taxi. See Mayan ruins, remote side of the island, beach clubs on the south end, swim with dolphins, go zip lining, or enjoy a Mayan steam lodge, to mention just a few on island activities. You can also take the ferry to Play del Carman to explore the mainland, including cenotes, Mayan ruins and more.

About Gary & Patricia Gomola

When not in Cozumel we live in Connecticut and have traveled the world for scuba diving. We actually met in Cozumel about 25 years ago on a dive trip.

Gary & Patricia Gomola purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gary & Patricia Gomola chose Colonia Andres

While diving every major spot in the world we kept returning to Cozumel. We realized that Cozumel rivaled places much further away. We love the island, its people and the food. It is one of the safest places we have been. We actually considered purchasing at El Cantil while the first building was being built, but it was not the right time for us. We always said 'we will own a property here some day'. A few years ago, while entering our retirement phase, the time was right.

What makes this condo unique

Location. Everything is within walking distance. Shopping and restaurants. Did we mention that the food is fabulous? Most restaurants are reasonably priced compared to other islands.

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

One of our party used to own a unit in this same building, and he - with all of us agreeing - says that this unit is just fantastic. Wonderfully decorated, great Internet, everything you could want. We liked it so much we booked another trip before finishing this trip!

Fantastic condo with an amazing view!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our week long family vacation in Cozumel. There were five of us (2 adults, 2 18 year olds, and a 10 year old) and we couldn't have asked for anything better. It was incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated. I can't say enough about the view from the balcony ~ truly amazing!! The color of the water is breathtaking and it was like having cruise ships in your backyard!!! The private hot tub on the balcony was awesome!

We spent a good amount of time in the pool just looking out at the ocean. We were able to snorkel right there and had the best time jumping into the crystal clear water!!

Everything about the complex was great. Fantastic location and helpful staff. I can't recommend this condo enough.

Beautiful Condo, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very large and wonderfully decorated. Having morning coffee overlooking the Caribbean was our favorite time of day. The building is well-maintained, with a nice pool and the ability to snorkel right from the dock, which is great if you are teaching kids or others who are unfamiliar with snorkeling (you can practice in the pool and then the ocean). It is about a 15 minute walk or $5 cab-ride to the center of town. There are two grocery stores very close by and an ATM across the street. We rented a car for a few days which was helpful - driving is easy and no one seems to speed. So if we come again we will probably rent a car for the week. English is widely spoken and dollars are a second currency. The island is one of the most visited cruise ship ports and tourism seems to be its main (maybe only?) industry. It is very easy to procure high quality food, services, etc. and is a great foreign trip for less-adventurous kids and adults and a very easy and pleasant beach vacation for anyone, especially if you like beautiful views and snorkeling and/or diving. We took the ferry to Playa del Carmen which is 10 miles/30 minutes across the water and makes an interesting day trip. Also, visited Mr. Sanchos and Playa Mia beach club. Mr. Sanchos is definitely worth it - Playa Mia not so much unless you have kids who would love the in the ocean water park (which we did). If you go to a beach club, two words of advice - look up on internet how may cruise ships will be in port so you can pick a day with less ships and plan to say past 2p which is about when the cruise ship passengers begin to leave - the club empty out and becomes very pleasant!

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 8 nights with my family and son's GF. This unit itself is gorgeous and very well appointed with large rooms. The best part is the outstanding views! I thought that perhaps the primary photo was a tad color 'enhanced' - but it isn't; it really looks like that with late morning sun. The location is also excellent; its about 3 blocks south of the 'main' action by the ferry dock, plus there are two large stores (think slightly smaller versions of Walmart or Super Target) within a block. The pool and faux-beach are only for the condo complex with secure access, so you don't have anyone there but other owners/guests. This is not a resort, so there's no pool-side service or onsite restaurant, but there's also no thumping music or vendor traffic. Getting pool-side chaise lounges for 6 was never a problem. There is a little bit of road-noise from the main Av. Melgar, but not bad. The City hall/police are right across the street, so we felt very safe. The 24-hour on-site security is also very comforting, but not really needed. The only major downside for us was that the dishwasher was broken, so had to do dishes the old-fashioned way... (The owner had ordered a new one, but apparently even Amazon takes weeks down there...)

Owner's Response: Thanks. We are happy that you had a good time. And we apologize again for the dishwasher breaking down. The new one arrived from Cancun the day after you left, and is now installed.

Way above expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures although very inviting do NOT compare to how Spectacular this condo was. The views were beyond gorgeous--stunning! Well furnished and very spacious. Basically 3 master bedrooms in one condo. We made daily trips to grocery store across the street for fresh pastries. Highly recommend!!
