Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2015 The property is even more amazing than the pictures represent. We were a giant group of 19, extended family with all ages represented, and it was more than perfect! Jesus & Petra, the caretakers, were so kind and helpful and friendly, they could anticipate any and all of our needs before we needed them. I would most definitely return to this property and wouldn't hesitate recommending it. I have travelled around the globe and this is by far the best accommodation I have EVER stayed in. Thanks for everything.
A guest from Winnetka, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 We had an amazing time at Mondo Palancar! Great set up for 5 couples. The location is quiet and peaceful. The pool and beach set up were perfect. Many different sitting areas and places to relax. The staff was very accommodating and kept the property immaculately clean. Daily housekeeping service was wonderful. We will definitely return with families and friends again!
Andrew L. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 brought the family here for a week fro Spring break. Ummm Whats not to like about this place email me @ if you want to know more
Kevin M. from Dever, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2012 I took the extended family to Mondo Palancar for a week and we had a fabulous time. At Annette's recommendation we opted for meal service and I was glad we did. Edgar the chef kept us well fed on regional cuisine.The on-site staff (housekeeper, handyman and gardener) kept everything tidy without being intrusive. There were several roof leaks around the house so towels and buckets were underfoot. The place is so big that we weren't inconvenienced by it, though.The location is a good 15 to 20 minute drive from town (San Miguel) so it's not convenient to pop over to the supermarket for a needed item. I didn't mind because I really enjoyed the seclusion and privacy.Bedrooms all have individual air conditioner units but common areas do not. The kitchen can get hot when using the range but there are doors, windows and ceiling fans. Most days there are nice breezes that help keep the house cool.The beach is rocky so water socks are a good idea. We used the pool much more than the beach anyway.Internet service is available but the wifi coverage was intermittent. We ended up using the ethernet cable in the upstairs office the few times we wanted to connect.Overall concensus of the group - "Best vacation EVER!" I would rent this property again.
A guest from Decatur, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012 There is something magical about Mondo Palancar. Christina, our contact in Cozumel could not have been any more helpful. She was always available and our best resource. Our cook was just the best ever. The new caretakers for the property have the property looking the best it has every looked. The massage folks were exceptional. If you want an excellent SCUBA diver for your stay we recommend highly recommend Alex. We are already planning our next return.
Paul S. from Longwood, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2012 Mondo Palancar is an amazing home for a large family reunion, or a multi-family get-together. Perfectly located well south of town, you are able to avoid the annoyances of the cruise ship ports and large hotels. You are a stone's throw from the famed Palancar Reef, the best diving on the island. The property is quiet and secluded, with all the amenities you could ask for. My only reservation to recommending this property is that you may reserve it before I do for next year!
Ronald D. from Grapevine, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 To understand thehonest review, you will need to read my comments fully...We loved the entire vacation and the house is a dream house to stay in. However, the condition of the home is the issue, and the staff did a wonderful job of addressing the concerns immediatly and to the best of their abilities. The staff is wonderful. We expected the home in this price range to be "rental ready" when we arrived and the master bedroom A/C, the kitchen A/C did not work at all, and a second bedroom A/C unit quit working the third night. The out door spa did not work, ice maker never worked, microwave never worked. The staff got repair personal to fix the master A/C and the spa pump and after two days without A/C the guest bedroom A/C with workmen having to work at the house three streight days interupting our stay and making us unconfortable with all the workmen inside the house and outside during our leisure time. We was informed that the owner did not want to spend the money to repair the Kitchen A/C, ice maker, and microwave. We used the cook service for Breakfast and Dinner but we had to use the kitchen for lunch meals and it was like a sauna for us and the cook. It was very unconfortible to say the least due to it being at least 110 degrees in the kitchen. I would suggest you inquiring about the condition of the home BEFORE your rental as it was a major disruption of your privacy to have so many repairs necessary, but the house is a dream house to stay in.
Linda A. from Decatur, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2009 This is our second time to Mondo Palancar. We love it...feels like home. It is spectacular, peacful, relaxing. From the moment we leave we start talking about our next trip back.
Tammy K. from Golden, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2009 We returned to Mondo Palancar for the 2nd time in April 2009. 16 family members shared a fantastic week in paradise, wishing we could have stayed for two weeks! This is without a doubt our favorite vacation spot. We've traveled to many places and have finally found the best "resort" for our family. In addition to the wonderful home and amenities (pool, tennis courts, canoes, beech volleyball) the staff at Mondo is like family to us. Antonio, Teresa, Adam and their twin daughters make our stay very special and relaxing. And, the wonderfully delicious food prepared by Luis, our personal chef, was beyond description. It will be difficult to find another resort location that compares to the facilities and service from our friends at Mondo Palancar! We will definitely return again to enjoy this beautiful destination! Muchas Gracias!
Amazing House, Location & Staff. Truly an estate on the ocean with terrific views, luxurious acommodations and delicious food!
Braun M. from Wellington, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2009 I would highly recommend Mondo Palancar for any groups of up to 16 people. There were 12 of us who went to celebrate my spouse's 40th birthday and it was a truly memorable trip. The house is amazing (probably the tallest on the island), the rooms were nice and it is right on the beach! We took the meal plan in which Luis and Eddie made all local food that was delicious! Everyone on the island was extremely nice and helpful and we look forward to a return visit!
Tammy K. from Golden, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2008 We had 18 family members at Mondo during Spring Break. The place was wonderful, relaxing, clean, exceeded our expectations. Our children told us it was the best vacation they had ever taken. And, we have traveled to many places, Hawaii, Southern Calf., Cancun, etc. The chef service was incredible. The food was fabulous and the staff was professional and attentive. We will return to Mondo again for certain!!! Cozumel wasn't a place we were considering until a friend told us about Mondo Palancar. Now, it's our favorite getaway!
William E. from Dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2008 We had the best time of our lives... thank you so much to the owner for building the house, and to Antonio for managing it. I know that we were a little crazy, but everything went great and smooth... you guys rock!
