About the property

Monarch by the Sea is a duplex penthouse including your own rooftop solarium with a private Jacuzzi overlooking the Caribbean Sea.


For a Caribbean vacation that towers above the rest, look no further than Monarch by the Sea. This fantastic three-bedroom, three-bath penthouse not only has some of the most epic views of the ocean and beach, but it is situated within one of Cozumel’s most elegant and coveted condominium communities: Residencias Reef. Here’s why.

From the moment you cross through the gated and guarded entrance, you’ll know you’ve arrived. Park your rental car and take in the view: you are within steps of a private, white-sand beach that’s lined with palm trees and shady palapas, and you can stake claim to one of the dozens of plush lounge chairs that put you in full view of the warm blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

You’ll also note that this fantastic community has two marvelous freshwater pools, where you can work on your tan or a frozen margarita beneath the shade of your poolside hut. There are also two outdoor showers, so you can rinse away the salt and sand after a fun day on the beach, hot tub, and a SCUBA/snorkeling gear rinse tank to use after coming mask to fin with the exquisite marine life and famed reefs of Cozumel.

And now it’s time to explore the great indoors—and Monarch by the Sea is great indeed. This incredible residence is a penthouse duplex, so you are afforded views that few others will ever enjoy.

Two of the three bedrooms are furnished with incredibly comfortable king-sized beds and both offer walk-out access to the balcony, thoughtful décor, and TVs. The third bedroom is equally grand, offering two queen-sized beds to maximize your sleeping options. The bathrooms are modern and beautifully tiled, and each offers plenty of under-cabinet storage for your personal effects.

Your hosts have also gone the distance to ensure that your indoor amenities are as spectacular as those of the community: they’ve included complimentary Wi-Fi in every room, no-cost calls to the U.S. and Canada, satellite TV with English-language channels (which you can view on the large flat-screen TV), sound system with and iPod/iPhone docking station, DVD and CD players with a music library…well, the list is exhaustive but ideal for when you want to kick back and relax.

While many of the nearby beachfront restaurants offer delivery, you also have a stellar kitchen where you can prepare your own edible creations. It is decked out with granite countertops and high-end stainless-steel appliances, along with all the little must-have gadgets you need to feel at home. And dining locations abound—you can sit around the lovely dining room table with seating for six, enjoy your meal on the huge wrap-around deck (which also offers tables and chairs to accommodate a group of six hungry guests), take the party outside to the pool or beach or—even better—enjoy a little barbecue action atop the rooftop solarium, which is an absolutely gorgeous spot to watch the sunset and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.

For a vacation that truly stands out in location, luxury and amenities, choose the penthouse in paradise: Monarch by the Sea.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved our stay here. The unit is incredible. It it were the building directly on the beach, I would give this five stars. The interior was spacious - palatial really, and was decorated tastefully. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking equipment, coffee maker, etc., and the bathrooms had an abundance of beach towels, blow dryer, etc. We loved the location. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cozumel other than Residencies Reef. I dove two days... and walking 3 minutes to the dive dock was so convenient. The beach was nice although if you're going to swim here I would suggest bringing water shoes - it's rocky right up to the shore and a little painful to get past. The sunsets from the beach were fantastic, the pools are great, the grounds are nicely manicured. My parents joined me on this trip and they plan to come back again sometime for a few weeks. It was easy, nice, luxurious and a great experience.

Perfect property for family diving trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time to stay at the Residencias Reef and this condo was by far our favorite! The living area and rooms were spacious and the views from the upper deck are incredible. We really like the convenience of catching the dive boat from the dock in front of the Secrets Resort - but beware - the management at Secrets is trying to collect $2.00 from each person every time he/she gets on or off a boat (which adds up for a large group). According to our dive master, this isn't legal but unfortunately, it may discourage us from staying at the Residencias Reef in the future.

Perfect condo ... excellent service!!

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning ... our communication with the property management via email prior to arrival was outstanding!! They answered ALL questions promptly, offered perfect grocery delivery service, rental car arrangements, excellent personal chef (Fernando), and scuba diving arrangements (Alberto)! PLUS, we had Alex ...his excellent management was SOOOOO very attentive on WhatsApp. He answered SO promptly and with enthusiasm! He suggested the best local Mexican family restaurant!! Amazing!! He will be able to suggest anything, everything and take care of ALL your needs! We traveled with another couple and their 2 children ... so, this 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom condo was perfect! Everyone was attentive and so helpful. Condo was spacious, well equipped, perfectly furniture, washer and dryer, beautiful sunsets from the top deck, 2 pools and private beach steps away. Thank you SO much for all you kindness and everything ... we had a fabulous time!!!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We wish we would have more time at this excellent condo. My wife loved the water pressure in the shower--much better than other properties we have stayed at in Mexico. Lovely views and wrap-around deck. Our kids loved the pool and the beach! We look forward to coming back in the future...

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo August 13-20 and had a great time very quiet place nice beach setting. It was easy to get to the condo and convient to get to places. The beds were very comfortable we had a group of 5 and everyone had their room and bathroom with of plenty of space. It was nice having two pools to choose from and when you come off the beach to get the salty feel off. I recommend this condo to anyone wishing to go to Cozumel.

Amazing Penthouse Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

Monarch By The Sea (Residencias Reef 6300) is an amazing condo!! The photos don't fully reflect how wonderfully spacious & how relaxed you will be in this unit. We are a group of 6 adults - scuba lovers enjoying Cozumel - and non of us ever felt a lack of privacy!

Each room & bathroom was exactly as described. The water pressure was excellent, the beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of extra towels. FYI, there was hairdryer provided (not on posting). We also used the washer/dryer in condo during our stay - was handy & worked well. The local Management staff was very responsive and friendly. Several extra large bottles of water (for dispenser) were delivered for our group. Beach clubs nearby were a quick walk for daytime meals (by 4pm) and we also made use of the grocery delivery service suggested. The kitchen had an abundance of cookware, dishes, utensils, etc. for use.

If you want a fabulous place to stay in Cozumel, it doesn't get better than this condo! Terrific beach front, two sparkling pools, and great dock access for dive boat pick-ups daily. We loved this space & will definitely be back again soon!

Perfect Spot in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with a group of 6 to Cozumel and the condo was absolutely perfect. Lots of common space, comfortable bedrooms, and all the amenities you could need in Cozumel. The property manager checked in multiple times to see if we had any questions or need anything. Short drive from downtown but far enough South to enjoy the Residencia Reef's beach and everything the beach clubs offer.
