For a Caribbean vacation that towers above the rest, look no further than Monarch by the Sea. This fantastic three-bedroom, three-bath penthouse not only has some of the most epic views of the ocean and beach, but it is situated within one of Cozumel’s most elegant and coveted condominium communities: Residencias Reef. Here’s why.
From the moment you cross through the gated and guarded entrance, you’ll know you’ve arrived. Park your rental car and take in the view: you are within steps of a private, white-sand beach that’s lined with palm trees and shady palapas, and you can stake claim to one of the dozens of plush lounge chairs that put you in full view of the warm blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.
You’ll also note that this fantastic community has two marvelous freshwater pools, where you can work on your tan or a frozen margarita beneath the shade of your poolside hut. There are also two outdoor showers, so you can rinse away the salt and sand after a fun day on the beach, hot tub, and a SCUBA/snorkeling gear rinse tank to use after coming mask to fin with the exquisite marine life and famed reefs of Cozumel.
And now it’s time to explore the great indoors—and Monarch by the Sea is great indeed. This incredible residence is a penthouse duplex, so you are afforded views that few others will ever enjoy.
Two of the three bedrooms are furnished with incredibly comfortable king-sized beds and both offer walk-out access to the balcony, thoughtful décor, and TVs. The third bedroom is equally grand, offering two queen-sized beds to maximize your sleeping options. The bathrooms are modern and beautifully tiled, and each offers plenty of under-cabinet storage for your personal effects.
Your hosts have also gone the distance to ensure that your indoor amenities are as spectacular as those of the community: they’ve included complimentary Wi-Fi in every room, no-cost calls to the U.S. and Canada, satellite TV with English-language channels (which you can view on the large flat-screen TV), sound system with and iPod/iPhone docking station, DVD and CD players with a music library…well, the list is exhaustive but ideal for when you want to kick back and relax.
While many of the nearby beachfront restaurants offer delivery, you also have a stellar kitchen where you can prepare your own edible creations. It is decked out with granite countertops and high-end stainless-steel appliances, along with all the little must-have gadgets you need to feel at home. And dining locations abound—you can sit around the lovely dining room table with seating for six, enjoy your meal on the huge wrap-around deck (which also offers tables and chairs to accommodate a group of six hungry guests), take the party outside to the pool or beach or—even better—enjoy a little barbecue action atop the rooftop solarium, which is an absolutely gorgeous spot to watch the sunset and enjoy the cool ocean breeze.
For a vacation that truly stands out in location, luxury and amenities, choose the penthouse in paradise: Monarch by the Sea.
