About the property

1350 Square Feet Including A Large Patio One Bedroom One Bath Condo On SF Beach

This vibrant, beautifully designed unit is only steps away from Aura pier for world-class diving & snorkeling. Ground floor allows you to skip the stairs & access the grounds directly from your spacious balcony. Amenities include WiFi & free phone calls to US & Canada!

The unit in a private gated community with 24 hours security services is located right on San Francisco Beach, the most beautiful beach on Cozumel. Just a 5 minute boat ride to some of the greatest and world renowned reefs such as Palancar. We recommend bringing aqua socks because the ocean floor is rocky. You can also decide to jump or get into the water directly from the pier a few yards away! There's also good snorkeling just off the beach. The beach stretches on for miles so you can run or jog for as long and as far as you would like.

The unit is fully air conditioned along with ceiling fans in bedroom, living room and patio. Maid services will be provided twice during each week excluding Sundays. Please let our local manager know which days you would like maid services upon your arrival. The unit has access to two large heated freshwater pools, with the 2nd swimming pool directly in front of building 3 (the unit). You are only a few steps away from Palancar Dive Shop (the local dive shop) and the pier that you will be picked up for either your scuba dive or snorkeling adventures. You have access to the outdoor shower and rinse tank for your dive gear located at the beach pool.

The condos are located about 9 miles south of Cozumel's only town, San Miguel. The unit comes with Magic Jack so you can call U.S. or Canada for free to check in with family and friends. In addition, the unit has high speed internet access (WiFi) and 2 entertainment speakers that allow you to connect and enjoy your music from any of your mobile devices! The unit also has a TV that is connected to Chromecast so that you can watch your favorite Netflix or Youtube movies or any other Chromecast supported app. If you haven't used Chromecast before, simply download the Chromecast app to your iOS or Android device and follow the instructions when you open up the Chromecast app.

Purified bottled waters will be provided for your pleasure. Beach and shower towels are also provided for your daily pleasure. Extra charges will apply for maid services for stays longer than a week. Nothing unexpected here except a great big beautiful beach and sunset.

About Maryame

My family and I love traveling. After going to Cozumel 4 times within a 2 year period, we decided to purchase this vacation and eventually our retirement home in July of 2015 as we found out we were in love with Cozumel and white sandy beaches of Residencias Reef at San Francisco beach. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we love staying there.

Maryame purchased this condo in 2015

Beautiful & Romantic One Bedroom Condo At Residencias Reef With Great Amenities
average rating of 4.428571 based on 7 reviews

Enjoyable apartment with big and well furnished rooms

  • 5 of 5

In our case it is more important a complete kitchen, and it was, than a pool or a tennis court

It is true that a car is necessary to know complete island and visit ruins and different beaches

People that work in in condo activities, have a natural and constant predisposition to help

No doubt you will remember your stay for ever and why not come again

Immaculately clean and simply decorated

  • 4 of 5

This was our seventh visit to Residencias Reef. This unit was simply decorated, immaculately clean, and any complaint or problem was handled immediately. Sitting on the terrace with our morning coffee and watching the hummingbirds was a joy. Residencias Reef is a beautifully cared for property with an ample beach. Staff is very friendly.

We encountered a few problems: Entering the unit we noticed a musty odor. We experienced this a previous year in the unit next door, and the manager had the air conditioner cleaned, using a bleach solution. We requested that this be done in 7180, and it was, though perhaps not very well as the odor, though reduced, remained. The manager never returned or checked with us to see if the problem was resolved. After the cleaning, both AC units were rattling, which required another call and a second visit to fix.

Kitchen supplies were adequate, although the “nice” silverware was displayed in the setting laid out on the dining room table. The silverware for use was strictly utilitarian (though no reason we couldn’t have used the “displayed” silverware). We buy food for breakfast and lunch and coffee filters were provided; it would have been nice to have had paper napkins, and a box of tissue in the bathroom would have been appreciated.

Unfortunately we didn’t pay attention to the description of the TV service provided, (we are news junkies even on vacation), since all the other units have had U.S. satellite TV. Only movies (not free) were available using the provided Chromecast service. (However with a cell phone or computer you can access programming via wifi and broadcast it on the TV.) But this is our fault. Free telephone service to the U.S. was provided, as in every other unit we have stayed.

The property description said maid service was “every other day” but when no maid appeared by Wednesday afternoon (in our Saturday-Saturday stay), we called the property manager and someone showed up Thursday. We had the feeling that the property management company was not doing its job, as the owner, whenever she was contacted, was very gracious, apologetic and eager to please (and was not aware of the problems mentioned above). None of these things interfered with our having the usually lovely time in Cozumel, and enjoying being at Residencias Reef.

Relaxing stay in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Residencias has everything you need for a fun, relaxing stay -- including the great little local food stand just a few meters down the road from the condo. Quiet beach, two good-sized pools, and the dive boats pick up right at the nearby pier. Doesn't get any easier than that.

Three amazing weeks of vacation

  • 4 of 5

For being there three times in the last 18 months…we absolutely love Residencias Reef. The condo is really spacious, well-furnished and really clean. This complex is always really quiet. The pools and beach were never crowded. Make sure you bring water shoes…Also, because of the amazing landscape, you will need mosquito repellent when the sun goes down. There are three major places where you can go for groceries (Mega Center, Chedraui and Sam’s club). It’s only 150 pesos a way for a cab if you don’t want to rent a car.

Security personnel onsite are very helpful with answering any questions and calling cabs (thank you Alejandro, you are the best as always). Maid service was efficient. The owner can be reach promptly.

We dove with Dressel Divers and dive boats will pick you up right at the Secrets resort pier just in front of the condos. You will be able to leave your gear at the Iberostar (bring your own padlock) and if you book your dives before your trip, you will get a 20% discount. More dives you buy, less it will cost you. We’ve been diving with Dressel for five years now and they really are the best. Big boats but only 8 divers per dive master. Unbeatable prices !!!

Look forward to go back again…

Beautiful, peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo and property exceeded all expectations. The condo was large, clean and well laid out. It was well furnished and the balcony was huge, with great furniture. The pools and beach were pristine and never crowded. While the overall complex seemed full, people were out enjoying the diving and sights of Cozumel so nothing was busy. We especially enjoyed the food stand along the main road (under the cell tower). A short walk away for great tacos and sopes. A little further along the road there is another store where you can buy beer and food as well (they make great guacamole). Easy walking access to these more local food sources is key. We dove with ScubaTony three times and the Secrets pier made for an easy pick up. By being south of town, the location ensures that dive boats will pick you up right at the pier. Security personnel onsite were helpful with answering any questions and calling cabs. Our one time maid service was thorough and efficient. Hope to be back!
