We have been traveling to Cozumel for over 30 years, first via cruise ship, then many visits to the Fiesta Americana, and over the past 20 years staying at multiple villas. We have wanted to stay at El Cantil for a while now and finally did so this month. Wow! We loved everything about our stay. We booked directly with Al via email on the El Cantil website. Communication was excellent, he was very patient with all my questions, especially those surrounding what if scenarios surrounding COVID. We stayed in the Chocolate condo unit on the top floor of the north tower, which was a two bedroom/two bathroom unit. It was extremely clean and maid service was provided each day but Sunday. We liked the layout of the condo, the separate air conditioning units in each bedroom and in the living room, as well as the balcony with the incredible view. The air worked so well we turned it off in the living room on many occasions. The elevator and stairway required our key card for entry and there was always an attendant stationed there. Entry to the pool area was also secure and gained via the underground parking garage. The pool! Beautiful clean area with a few palapas in the sandy area and plenty of seating throughout. Not sure what it would be like during peak season with more people staying but in November it was perfect for us. The large pool is heated. Another nice thing about El Cantil is the location. We walked to restaurants and stores easily. For this very reason we would no longer rent a car, except for maybe a couple of days if we wanted to drive around the island. Even for that we may just take taxis our entire stay. My husband and I have both decided we will be returning to El Cantil on our next visit to the island. We will start each morning and end each day on the balcony watching the wonderful view.

Our large group of friends stayed in two units at El Cantil Condo resort. Both condos were beautiful and comfortable, one on the ground floor and one on the third. The pool is wonderful, and we had excellent access to the ocean -- perfect for an afternoon snorkel. Two large grocery stores were within about 3 minutes walk. And the main drag of Cozumel was close enough (about a ten minute walk) without being too close. I'd like to be in that condo right now, thank you!

El Cantil has an excellent location. A large grocery store is a short 2 blocks away which is very useful becuase my unit had a full kitchen. Next to the kitchen sink was a purified water tap so there was no need to buy and lug lots of plastic bottles of water. Most of the units have fantastic views of the ocean and a nice balcony which in my unit included a hot tub. The units were clean and comfortable. The wifi was very good. There are lots of good restaurants within walking distance. El Cantil has a large pool and beach chairs under palapas. It also has its own pier from which my dive operator picked me up every morning. As a condo it does not have a lobby but there was always a friendly and helpful security guard at the entrance. My unit was 7GN which I rented via VRBO. The property management company, Rentals Your Way was very efficient. Highly recommended.

This place is as advertised. Perfect location, beautiful, great WiFi, ac cold enough to hang meat. Only place I will ever stay. I condo was around $105 a night per couple. That’s cheap as it gets. Across the street from Mega grocery store. Jeanies restaurant is 60 yards away and very reasonable. Overall this place is exceptional.

We stayed with three other couples at El Cantil (unit 3CN) and loved every minute of it. This is our second stay there in as many trips to Cozumel. We really like the location (walkable to many restaurants and bars in 10-15 minutes), the nice snorkeling right off the pool deck (we say eagle rays, an octopus, and plenty of fish), and the awesome infinit pool right on the ocean. Our condo was super and the service was very good. We had an issue with our dishwasher and the parts to repair it were on order for several days. To make things right, the management company sent daily maid service to our unit including doing all the dishes for us. We will definitely be back!
