Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Quintana Roo - Condo 8240 at Residencias Reef

1 Bedroom/1 Bath, Sleeps 2 Adults and 1-2 children, Beach, Pool, Jacuzzi

Bienvenidos a Cozumel, the pristine Caribbean island where the scenery is impeccable, the scuba-diving is second to none, and the outstanding times are a dime a dozen.

During your stay, you might find yourself enjoying sparkling sunsets from Residencias' private beach, from the comfy chairs on your balcony, or from the exclusive rooftop patio, all of which this one bedroom, one bath unit, provides you access.

Located on San Francisco beach, Residencias Reef consists of four condo complexes that surround two heated pools.

Our unit, 8240, rests on the second floor terrace that overlooks the pool and beach, pointing directly at the spot where the sun sets.

8240 is fully furnished and ready for you to stay comfortably as long as your heart desires.

There are a few beach club restaurants within walking distance of the condo, although they tend to close up shop once the cruise ship crowds head out in the afternoons.

For this reason, most renters prefer to stock up on groceries upon arrival, or have the delivery service shop for them! The grocery stores on the island have outstanding produce, fresh fish and meat, and a wide variety of drink options, including wine, alcohol, beer, and, of course, tequila.

The following amenities are provided with your rental:

• Security Gated Community

• Large Master Bedroom with King Size Bed & Luxurious Cotton Sheets

• Private Sandy Beach for lounging, snorkeling, or swimming

• Stainless Steel Appliances, Granite Countertops, and Kitchen Appliances (coffee pot, microwave, toaster etc…)

• Large Safe for passport, money, cameras, laptops

• Electronic Door Locks

• In Unit Washer and Dryer

• Purified Water Dispenser

• Full Bathroom and Shower

• 46” TV in Living Room with Dish, 32” TV in Bedroom with DVD player

About Susan Davenport

After shivering away for sixty plus winters in the Rocky Mountains, I had enough of the snow and cold weather. A quick remedy to the winter blues was a Caribbean condo; makes sense, right? Attracted to the temperate weather and the ocean teeming with colorful fish and coral, I knew Cozumel was the only place that I wanted to be.

Susan Davenport purchased this condo in 2013

Why Susan Davenport chose Quintana Roo

Having spent the better part of a decade visiting Cozumel, I have had the chance to stay at many different resorts, condos, and hotels. Residencias Reef is simply the best. It has all the best Cozumel has to offer, with none of the headache, hype, or drunken hysteria of other touristy destinations in Mexico.

What makes this condo unique

Private beach, exclusive rooftop patios - perfect for watching sunsets, two heated pools that provide enough pool space for many guests, a friendly community of residents and travelers.

Resort style gated community.

Private balcony with view of beach, ocean and perfect sunsets.

Another AMAZING stay!

  • 5 of 5

We discovered Residencias Reef a number of years ago after doing the All-Inclusives for years and we've never looked back. The complex is perfectly located on San Fransisco beach and away from the hustle of town. We always rent a car during our stay so the distance is not an issue.

As for this unit.......This was not our first stay in this Condo and certainly will NOT be our last.

The location in building 4 provides an amazing view of the complex, the pool and the beach. Access to the roof-top solarium is an added bonus and watching the sunset from up there quickly became a evening ritual.

The unit is extremely well outfitted with everything you'll need to make your vacation perfect. The layout is ideal for a couple with a very spacious bathroom, twin sinks, large shower and a roomy bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed and wonderful linen.

We found everything we required in the kitchen to prepare our meals (very often fresh fish!!!) and there certainly is something to be said about doing dishes while looking out at the palm trees and evening sun.

The living room was very comfortable to relax in the evening. It's very tastefully decorated and includes beautiful photos of various locations around the island which adds a really nice personalized touch.

While we don't watch TV in Cozumel (too many other beautiful things to see and do!), the condo was fully equipped and also provided wireless internet and free calling to/from the US and Canada.

Most dive ops will pick you up at the dock beside the complex and it's a short boat-ride to the prime dive-sites. There is a rinse-tank located beside the main pool so it also has every a diver could ask for.

The balcony was the perfect place to enjoy lunch after our morning dives......the view is magnificent.

We had the pleasure of meeting Susan during one of our stays in Cozumel and it was immediately obvious why her Condo is such a warm and welcoming place......it's a true reflection of the owner!

She is extremely pleasant to deal with and responds to any questions you may have quickly......she makes the entire experience easy!

We will be returning and would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a relaxing and care-free vacation.

I don't know what to say

  • 5 of 5

Our week long trip to Cozumel in this condo was the best trip we have ever taken to Cozumel. We have traveled there countless time but have always stayed in an all incl. Well this trip has changed that forever. The condo was comfy. It had all the post, pans, plates and glasses you need for four people. The bed was great, if fact it's better then my own bed. There is no daily maid service which we liked that a lot. We have been to hotels when we were done diving and the maid was in our room. The grounds are well kept up. the beach was nice, plenty of chairs. the pools were quite.

The owner answered our questions right away. We are looking forward to next year. The view was great too. We had friends that rented one two doors over and they had a hot tub on their deck. We liked our room better it was set up more for entertaining outside. Just watch the no see ums.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough of how much we enjoyed this condo. We have been to Cozumel countless times but always stayed in an all inclusive. This was different for us. I was concerned about it not feeling like vacation. That was not the case. This place was great. very comfortable. The bed was comfy, the couch was comfy. The view was great. Take note they have sugar for coffee. Spices, towels, pots and pans. This condo was quite roomy. We had people over for dinner a few night we didn't have any issues. This place is real quiet and the grounds are nice. Not a lot of people. We had no problem unwinding right away. The pier is close for divers. Plenty of parking. We rented a car for the week. We where glad we did since we went to the store almost every day. The owner was great to work with. This place is worth every penny.

A WONDERFUL STAY IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Hi, we spent the whole month of March 2016 at Residencias reef and really enjoyed every moment! The condo was very clean , very well furnished and the view we had from our balcony was unique. We were located about 15 minutes of San Miguel, so easy to go to the

Mega (grocery) and very good restaurants? Susan, the owner was very accessible and always nice and ready to answer our questions. The location of this unit was just perfect, close to the 2 pools, the beach and the cleanliness of the grounds were impeccable. The other thing we really enjoyed was the terrace on the roof. OMG numerous time we ended up there with a drink to enjoy the sunset or doing some exersice or yoga in the morning. It' a WOW!

If I may suggest something, it would be to figure out a way to put a small lunch/ dinner table on the balcony in order to be able to eat outside because the view is amazing from the balcony. The sofas and the bar table is ok but we would have really enjoyed eating our meals outside. Just a suggestion !

So to resume , we would come back anytime, it was perfect.

Thanks Susan, was heaven in your CASA!

Fun vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Susan's condo. She was very responsive to emails before and during our stay, giving us great advice and recommendations. If you plan to swim off of the beach property, either bring some water shoes or start your swim in shallow water. We were able to do the latter without too much difficulty.

Great location, beautiful property, wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

As beach lovers who did not want an all inclusive, this location was just what we were looking for. Booking was easy and the owners were very responsive. The view from the unit was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony each morning sipping our coffee. We rented a car for the week (<$100) and did a fair amount of exploring - the 'wild' side of the island is a must see. The small complaint I have is that the pillows & bean bag bed are lumpy and could stand to be replaced. That said - I'd highly recommend!
