Dodo Residential March 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough superlatives for me to describe our fabulous experience we had at the Dodo Residential in San Miguel.

The location was as advertised. It was close to all one would need for an extended stay vacation. The Central Market was less that one hundred meters away, and the OXXO, and a fabulous laundry facility were right around the corner. There was a variety of restaurants with great food all within walking distance.

Delffi greeted us at the gate as soon as we arrived from the airport (which is only 2 kilometers form the Dodo). We were immediately impressed by the cleanliness and coziness of the building, and our room. We also felt very safe. The neighborhood was as friendly as our landlords and our housekeeper Nellie.

While there, the lever to our toilet broke. I notified Philippe and it was fixed within an hour. That was impressive.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Dodo Residential to anyone; friend, relative or total stranger.

An oasis in the middle of the city

  • 4 of 5

This one bedroom unit in this three level condo, was well furnished with an small kitchen good for preparing breakfast, The Garden is by far the best feature of this unit. The beautiful mature trees and flowers add a charm plus a nice shade to keep the place cool most of the day. The unit is 10 mins walk from downtown and next to a local market. It's very centrally located. We had a rented a car and had no trouble parking in front of the unit on the street.

Philippe and Delffi were always available and very friendly. We stayed here for a month and Nelly cleaned our rooms and had fresh towels for us every other day.

Philippe also has his own Bee farm and had fresh delicious honey for sale which we brought back home as well.

Overall, a gem in the middle of city close to all amenities.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This apartment, within walking distance to everything, met all of our needs. The friendly and knowledgeable owners were available promptly with even the smallest of needs, but more importantly, provided privacy for us to enjoy what we needed...solitude. The property was clean and well cared for. Residents in next door units were courteous, friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again, although might request that the bed be updated. All correspondence from beginning to end, was professional, courteous and smooth. We very much appreciated being able to stay here. It's popular, so book your reservations early.

We hope to see you again here with us at Dodo Residential in the near future! Thank you! Sincerely Philippe & Delffi

Great choice for value "Base Camp" in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Compact apartment is designed for longer stays, but worked well for our visit of just a few days. Location is a 5-min walk from the main tourist zone and close to many restaurants, including the Mercado. AC in bedroom worked well. It's an older building with basic furnishings and is very clean and quiet (rooms face an inside courtyard, so are off the street). Best part of stay was owner (Philippe) was very gracious, and the fellow neighbors were an interesting and friendly conglomerate of snowbirds. We rented a car one day from ISIS which was just a few blocks away and had a great time and went to several beach clubs (enjoyed Paradise Beach Club as it has a great pool).

Note, this is intended as a small apartment community - it does not have the same amenities as a hotel.

Trois semaines au soleil

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour à Dodo. Philippe nous a acueilli et a répondu à toutes nos questions. La propriété est impeccable et Nellie est un atout majeur. Tout est à distance de marche, restos, quatre supermarchés, Lucilla, à deux pas, qui fait notre lessive. Dodo est un petit oasis dans un quartier très vivant et intéressant. On peut même prendre des cours d'espagnol à proximité.

Nice accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Philippe's apartments were a great choice for us... Right around the corner from where my daughter is living and out of the tourist district but only a few blocks walk if that is what you're looking for.

Dodo Apts has the flavor of the real Cozumel with lots of little cantinas nearby to walk to. Philippe was very accommodating and was quick to respond to any email I sent him. I would stay here again on return trips.
