Spring Break 2019 - Book Direct With El Contil
The unit was very nice, clean and the staff is exceptional. The details of the condo are not quite accurate, however and communication through VRBO was awful.
First, there are four bedrooms, all with king beds rather than one bedroom having two double beds. Second, the unit initially stated there were 4 bathrooms and there are only three. This has since been updated from the time of booking. Third, there is not a private pool, but rather a community pool, which is fine, just not what is stated in the details. The pool was cold initially, but the staff heated it up when asked. Also, there is not a private elevator that opens into this room, it opens out into a common area.
There is a grocery store right across the street and is very convenient. You can also walk everywhere you need to go - all of the food and restaurants were great.
Claudia, at the front desk, is amazing and VERY helpful. She assisted us to rent a Jeep for a day, swim with the dolphins, hire a sailboat for the day and recommend where to have our daughter's hair braided. We also worked with Claudia to have an extra bed put into our room as that is what we needed for our stay (due to there being 4 king beds and we needed a bedroom with two double beds as the rental stated).
I HIGHLY recommend booking direct with El Cantil and not through VRBO as you could save money on renting as well as communication frustrations.
The last comment I need to state is that when I booked through VRBO, my account appeared that I had not paid, but I did find the payment took place by looking at my credit card statement. In addition, when I reached out to the contact through VRBO, I could not find anyone to assist me. My emails remained unanswered and it was very frustrating as we had many questions. I HIGHLY recommend working directly with El Cantil and NOT VRBO.
Home away from home
Once again we had another excellent stay at El Cantil. This condo is immaculate and comfortable; it has all the ammentities you need and the views are spectacular. Breakfast at Prima is the perfect way to start your day, so many yummy choices and the the jugo de sandia (watermelon juice) is a delicious treat. As wonderful as the condo, Prima, the pool and beach area is, it takes a great staff to take care of everything and I can't say enough about the staff. Everyone is very helpful and friendly, you will be greeted with open arms, a welcome smile and treated like family. El Cantil has truly became our home away from home. Can't wait to come back in May!
The best place to stay in Cozumel! Exceptional location, amazing dinning experience at Prima, right on site. Walk to everything in towm, dive boat pick up on the pier for a fast run to the reefs!
If you haven't stayed at El Cantil, you are missing the most convenient locatin ever.
Location, Quality and No Language barriers!
For those of you concerned about not speaking the language don't be. The staff all speak English. The quiet location is both waterfront and about 6 blocks from the main plaza. Our condo could not have been better. The entire complex is maintained perfectly. The pool is as beautiful as it looks. Plenty of space to spread out pool side or under a palapa with sand between your toes. Getting into snorkel was easy with a a protected inlet with steps. No fighting waves and snorkeling was great in front of the condo! Albert was a wealth of knowledge. He gave us lots of advise that was spot on. We found that booking rental cars through the front desk was no more costly than anywhere else plus they pick you up. It's good for a day trip around the island. Grocery store, Municipal building and children's park are across the street so the location is convenient and safe. A bank just 2 blocks away gave the best exchange rate with no fee. The pier was good height for accessing the Dive boats in the morning. We used Dive Paradise who's office is about 3 blocks away. We paid the extra $10 for the "express boat". They are suppose to be faster but who knows. It was just 25 minutes to the reefs. Diving was GREAT every day with lots of sea turtles, eels, etc. There were many dive companies to choose from.
Normally, I don't bother with more than 1 meal at the restaurant in a condo complex but Prima was different. The views, staff and food were wonderful. Every meal from Breakfast, lunch and dinner was terrific and prices were good. We ate many meals there. With elevators, ramps and even a kiddie pool (though I never saw a little one) this would be family friendly. We were 4 females from 45-65 all LOVED the place and will return for sure.
This was the perfect place for us to stay for Ironman Cozumel. The condo is spectacular with a wall of windows looking out over the ocean. The sunsets were amazing. Each bedroom was very large with a great bathroom making for the a good place to have several couples or families stay together but have their space.
The restaurant is very good and the breakfast was a nice way to start the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful and it's a short ride from the airport.
It is near the action of town but on the ocean with a great pool and access to snorkeling. Great restaurants within walking distance and a nice grocery store across the street
Too kind, we hope to see you again
