Elizabeth W. from Chicago, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 We came down for a company get-away for my office of 10 people. It was a great house and location. The chef service was amazing and so convenient. They made our vacation relaxing and allowed us to enjoy the pool and snorkeling right outside our back door.
Ellen V. from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2015 We were a party of 6 adults, some family, some friends, staying over Christmas week. Many of us had stayed at the same house last Christmas (that says a lot about the property and the staff). Excellent location - we really like being on the south side to hit the more relaxed beaches down south and on the east side. When we wanted to go into town, it was only 20 minute drive. The food was fantastic. The service was immediate. the layout of the house was great - of the 5 bedrooms, none were bad even the "smallest" one was roomy with a large bathroom and an additional outdoor shower. A/C in the rooms worked perfectly. There is a platform that leads down to the water. The snorkeling is "ok" the water gets a little churned up based on the location. but you can still see lobsters, starfish and a variety of fish. Loved it and would definitely go back again.
A guest from Bologna, Bologna recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015 We were a group of 10 people in Las Ventanas Villa and we spent 4 amazing days there!The Villa has 5 big rooms with a private bathroom, so everyone was able to have privacy!! The Saloon is really big.The access to the sea was really safe and the water was fantastic. The house was very clean.You have the diving near the house and we had a great day diving and snorkeling. Annette was very helpful, with all the questiona that WE asked. We had only a little problem with the showers (in some rooms there wasn't hotel water )
Jim B. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 Our family has been going to Cozumel for over 15 years. This trip was for our 65th birthdays and we had 15 people. This is the second time we have rented a home from At Home In Cozumel. Both times great experience. This home is great, but needs some TLC. Kitchen works but needs updates, open area while not air conditioned, it is bearable, but does get warm and could use some floor fans. Bedrooms with outside showers are awesome. We did our own cooking and when needed the caretakers were available to provide towels and do minor cleaning/maid service. When we go back, we will look to rent this property again.
Leah S. from Drake, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 Beautiful property in a perfect setting! Our family of 10, which included 2 children and 2 teens, loved the access to the ocean to snorkel along with close proximity to beaches. It was an added bonus that our neighbor happened to arrange scuba and Parasailing trips. My only negative feedback would be outdated appliances, especially the stove, cooktop and refrigerator. This house was a quick car drive from the busy town but close enough to drive back and fourth as needed....
Alan C. from Ambler, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 We were a group of 9 including 4 children ranging from 18 months to 13 years. Everyone had a wonderful time. Edgar and Nini were wonderful hosts and truly made us feel at home. (Ask Edgar to show you his paintings) I would highly recommend the meal option-- we had fresh squeezed orange juice daily, gourmet quality meals, fresh papaya, mango, pineapple. My wife even picked up some cooking tips from Edgar. We used Dive House for those who went diving and Dive Palancar for a snorkel glass bottom boat trip for the kids (which they loved-- saw nurse shark, turtle, sting ray, star fish, and lionfish). Both dive shops are right next to the house. The little kids loved the wading pool and were entertained by the resident iguanas. The wooden pier down to the water was great for a quick snorkel during the day and beautiful sunsets every night. The rooftop deck was also great for lounging (though the hammock was not working). We rented one car which was enough for supply runs into town, a trip to San Gervasio ruins, a drive along the east coast, and a visit to La Casa del Mojito in town for mojitos and cuban cigars. Everyone was sad to leave and already thinking of a return trip to Las Ventanas!
scott a. from Anchorage, AK recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 We were a group of 8 people with a 2 year old child. Our stay at Las Ventanas was absolutely wonderful! The location is idyllic, the cook (Edgar) constantly surprised us with amazing meals, and the dive boat picked us up right about 50 yards away from our back door. The property is showing it's age a little with the appliances and could use a fresh paint job, but these items were a minor issue compared to the fantastic layout, excellent service, and beautiful location! I will come back again for sure!
A guest from Auxvasse, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2015 Renting from Annette was a seamless and worryless experience. The food was so good and Edgar is a wonderful person to have in your kitchen! This property is very enjoyable, spacious and is on target for a private relaxing vacation.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2014 We were a group of 8 thru 83 years old and we all had fun. The house was a complete pleasure...the showers were great and the cooks, maids and others were all wonderful. We loved all the water sports. We would reccomend the whole experience to any active family group. Five stars in all categories.
Reviewed by: April S. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2014 Our party of a dozen family and friends, made up of seven adults and five children, stayed Thanksgiving week at Las Ventanas for a vacation of snorkeling, diving, sightseeing, and lounging in the sun. There were no resentments in dividing up the bedrooms, with their attached artistic bathrooms, because the quality of each was fairly equal and interesting. The villa was very comfortable without being so precious that we felt we would need to squelch the children's behavior overmuch, and everyone loved the Gaudi-inspired organic architecture. The adults loved the hammock under the thatched palapa on the roof terrace; everyone enjoyed the curved living room seating. There was plenty of room to get together and plenty of room for privacy. We treated ourselves to having tasty breakfasts and dinners prepared by the skillful and artistic Edgar and his family, who couldn't have been nicer, more helpful or more professional. The location of the villa was excellent??if you schedule a dive with a vendor other than the dive shop next door to the north, for $2 you can still be picked up or dropped off at its pier, saving you some time. The sandy beach is a very short walk in the other direction, although the kids were happy for a good part of the day playing in the pool. There were plenty of beach towels to go around. We rented three cars for maximum flexibility for our group, and there was again plenty of room in the driveway to park them. Edmundo, owner of the Cha Cha Cha Dive Shop, took us to the Palancar Reef, lushous Cielo sandbar, and the Colombia Shallows for snorkeling, and knew just where a baby nurse shark liked to hang out. We saw sting rays, turtles, starfish, and countless fish. For another outing the Punta Sur Eco-Park was interesting, and both children and adults felt happy and privileged to have observed and helped in the season's releasing of the last batch of baby turtles.
A guest from Evergreen, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 Great place to stay if you are a scuba diver. The property is close to the dive sites and has a dock just down the walking path from the house. We dove with Dive Paradise (our favorite) although it is Dive Palancar right next door. I highly recommend the meal option, the chef was professional and made amazing meals. He also accommodated our crazy dive schedule. Every room had their own bath which was great since we had three couples staying at the villa. Sunsets from the roof were specatcular and a nice place to enjoy a cool beverage at the end of the day.
A guest from St. Paul, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 We loved this rental property! We had two families, a total of 10 people. Plenty of room, comfortable beds, great service from the on site manager. The place is quiet with a wonderful view, and yet close to the amenities of the island. I would stay here again and again.
A guest from Galena, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We have stayed at Las Ventanas twice. It is the perfect spot for a large group. The pool area is lovely and private. The upper terrace is a great place to chill with beautiful views. The new dock at the ocean is a great new amenity and we all took advantage of this to snorkel. It is very nice that the guest rooms are all very private and have their own bathrooms. Outside showers are awesome too! The interior of the home is really pretty basic, but suits us perfectly for a casual beach vacation. A few things in the home could be updated here and there, but nothing was by any means unacceptable, dirty or in disrepair. I cannot say enough about the house caretaker Edgar. He is a very kind and wonderful man. He constantly checked in to ensure we were happy and helped us when we had questions (ice, taxis, helped us with the grill, etc.) He is a gem. We will definitely be back to Las Ventanas again!

Dalena W. from Weatherford, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in June, 2013 We love going to Cozumel for the diving, so the location of Ventanas is perfect because the pier is on the next pc of property. We were also 4/10 mile walk on the beach to get to Carlos and Charlies. The house itself was nice and spacious and overall well kept. We had every thing we needed in the kitchen and compared to the Iguanas property we stayed in last stay, we prefer the layout and flow of Ventanas. The bedrooms were icy cold so a perfect retreat. We played a lot of volley ball in the large pool. We went to Ventanas with four other families and everyone had a great stay. We would definitely stay here again. The beach towels seemed slow in coming, but I learned from the housekeeper the washing machine had broken. I called Luiz and discussed this with him and he was there within 10 minutes. He had brought a new machine and the speed of beach towels and linens was great after. The housekeeper and staff were courteous and did a great job caring for the property and answering our questions and needs yet remaining almost invisible. We usually vacation in private homes and definitely would recommend Las Ventanas to others looking for a great and comfortable vacation home!
Brian S. from Iowa City, IA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2013 We enjoyed our week at Las Ventanas, especially the pool and the setting. The house was as pictured and as hoped - clean, spacious, with lots of room for our extended family ranging in age from 7 months to 58 years. We left only for groceries and a bit of shopping, preferring to enjoy the pool and the nearby beach. The caretakers took great care of the house and pool while maintaining a respectful distance as we relaxed and vacationed. Any requests we made were quickly fulfilled. The bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms were amazing and we especially liked the outdoor showers in three of the rooms. The kitchen was equipped well enough for us to cook all meals there, and we enjoyed cooking and experimenting with the local ingredients. The house is clearly used for rentals only, no evidence of regular residents. There was a large screen TV so we could enjoy the Oscars, but we couldn't get the DVD player to work. (We didn't try that hard as everyone had plenty to do without TV!). There is no dishwasher, which could be a problem for some. All in all, we would consider returning to this place. We called it our "family compound" and would be hard pressed to find a better one!
Glenn S. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012 My wife and eight of our friends had a great vacation at Las Ventanans. Property was exactly as described and the pictures on the internet. House is in good condition. Having bedrooms with attached bathrooms was great so everyone had there personal space. The biggest surprise of the week were the fabulous meals that Edgar and his wife prepared. We weren't expecting gourmet meals - but we got them. Fresh flower centerpieces each day. Fresh fruit. And dinners were amazing with standsouts being a braised chicken and Fish Tickinchik. We will definitely be back!!
Chris M. from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 We rented this house for 4 nights for a group of people for our wedding. The house and pool were great and the rooms provided everyone with plenty of privacy. Only had one issue with one of the room AC units but this was fixed promptly.
A guest from North Miami Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2012 This rental experience was excellent. The staff were incredible. Always available and there to accommodate. The location was perfect for us...the proximity to the beach (you could see it from the end of the property), action if you wanted it (a fun north american style resto/bar was walking distance) - the location was really superb - and the main town area for groceries and shopping was only a 10-15 min drive away (although it was so relaxing at the villa we barely wanted to leave). And the villa was quite private - with only passerby traffice on a rare occasion as they passed our pool area in the distance to reach their dive boat. And the food was DIVINE. We took the cook and the menu offered by the company and boy were we surprised!! Our whole group of 8 are officially converted to being Mexican food lovers. Not only delicious, every day we could tell the cook when we wanted to be cooked for and served - this truly made it an extra special wonderful experience. And did I mention every room had their own bathroom, some with outdoor showers and the views from some of the rooms were breathtaking. LOVED this experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. :)
A guest from Denver, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2011 Good experience. Overall very good rental. Fridge was a bit small for this size of a house. Would recommend an upgrade there--the seals were not in great shape. The on-site care takers were great. Our group of 11 cooked a lot of our meals so we didn't take advantage of their cooking.
A guest from New Ulm, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2011 The fridge could be updated in size and quality for keeping food cold. The only thing that would have made this villa more enjoyable would be if it were situated on a beach.
Great villa. Bedrooms are roomy, outdoor showers in some of the rooms were awesome. We wish the pool was heated but still mana
Michele M. from Salt Lake City, UT recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2010 This was one of the most enjoyable vacations our group of 9 have ever been on. The property was beautiful and Edgar & Nini our chefs prepared 1st class meals. We would definitely come back again.
Scott C. from Avon, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2010 Loved our stay! Would return in a heartbeat. The staff was polite, hard working and fast to handle any requests. Excellent value for the price. Hot water didn't last too long for showers but with 8 people getting ready at once...well let's put it this way everyone got ready fast so we were never late going anywhere. A few little nice finishing touches one some of the things in the house would go a long way to improve overall appearance and impression but we still loved it! Spacious, clean, great staff, wonderful location, overall A- and I'm usually not that generous while rating a hotel/vacation house stay! Awesome
Phyllis B. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 Nini and Edgar were great as usual. Hope we can go again next year. One of the things we love to do when we go there is to scuba dive. Alejandro Oliver is the dive master we dive with. He has certified two of my grand children and a friend as well. He is very careful, very patient, and we could not ask for a better person to look out for our welfare. .
Phyllis B. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2009 I have stayed at this villa about 5 times--sometimes with family and sometimes with friends. The staff are excellent. They are always friendly and helpful and do a great job. We love the location. It is good for divers which we are because of Alex Oliver and the others at the dive shop. On this trip some dove four times and others dove six times.
Clay H. from Allen, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2009 We just returned from another wonderful week in Cozumel. This was our second time to use At Home in Cozumel and our first time at Las Ventanas. We also had the same cook as our previous staff. His name was Luis and he was wonderful. Very accomodating and wonderful food. We dove 3 different times with Sand Dollar which was right next door and very convenient. The pool was also setup for water volley ball and it got a lot of use. We would highly recommend this property to anyone. We had 3 families with a total of 15 people and it was very comfortable. The couple that stays at the property to clean and help with cooking was very nice as well. Thanks for a great trip.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2009 First, I would like to say that the on-site house staff was absolutely wonderful. Likewise, the reservation company in the U.S. was great. However, we never heard from nor were we ever contacted by the local property "manager" in Cozumel. He left a note at the house & disappeared the rest of the week. Also, the house is in disrepair & is not being well maintained. We have stayed at this house before, and each time it is worse, instead of improved. For example, there were very few pots & pans in the kitchen, and the ones that were there were in terrible shape. Tiles are missing from the pool, handles are missing from the closets, and both the vcr & dvd players are missing - apparently they broke & have not been replaced. So much for the movies we wanted to watch, and if you had kids, this could ruin your vacation. The blinds in some of the rooms are missing slats, there was no hot water in 2 of the bedrooms, and the screens on one side of the house were missing, allowing so many flies inside it was almost unbearable to cook. Also, the refrigerator is so small, you can't possibly fit a week's worth of food in it. We had to buy coolers just to store our beverages. For the price of this so-called "luxury" house, it needs to be well appointed with amenities. All of that having been said, for us, the location next to the dive shop more than made up for the property's shortcomings. We had a wonderful time & would go back again.
Property Manager Response:
Hi Susan Right after your group left we performed the scheduled maintenance on the home. Everything that is mentioned on your check list was fixed except that the refrigerator hasn't been replaced with a larger model. We are glad that even before these repairs were done, you would still consider returning. It is a great property at a very convenient location for divers. Thanks for your comments. They were very useful to us.
Whitney M. from SLC, Utah recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2009 We shared the house with 2 other families. We had 6 adults and 5 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. We loved having our own pool at the house. The beach was close to the house but a little bit of a walk for all the kids. Plus the beaches were pretty crowded with resort guests. The best thing was having a personal chef that cooked us breakfast and dinner each day. The food was delicious and it was so great to not have to take the kids out to a restaurant.
Property has seriously declined since our last stay.
Harlan C. from Haymarket, VA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2009 No hot water for two different days. Not all lights, fans functional. Screens torn, blinds broken, drawers and handles don't work, furniture broken - cushions torn, toilet seat broken, shutters don't work. Numerous, numerous problems with overall property condition. We were very disappointed this trip - we had bragged about Las Ventanas because our previous trip here was so enjoyable - only to be let down. Even though it is in a great location for the dive shop and pier, I doubt that we will stay here again or ever recommend it to our friends.
A Wonderful place to stay for a family of 11 persons.
Elida J. from Eagle, Idaho recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2008 The cooks, house caretaker and his wife cleaned the place everyday, except Sunday. They were very attentive to our needs and even shopped for groceries for us three times during our stay. The first morning we heard the clank, clank of the oxygen tanks being loaded, but after that we didn't even noticed. We rented a motor scooter and a jeep to go to town which is about 5 miles from Las Ventanas. There are several restaurants we could walk to along the beach. And snorkle anytime we wanted to. We took a tour to snorkle from the dive shop next door. All in all it was a wonderful stay.
Neil R. from North Richland Hills, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 This was obviously a beautiful house in its day, but it needs some serious investment to bring it back in line to standard. Since the pricing was reduced from your advertised rates, I can't be too upset. If I had paid the full $5000 for the week, I would have been very disappointed. Specifically, we were not aware that the living/dining/kitchen areas were not air conditioned, the second floor had very little hot water or water pressure, ants infested the kitchen every night, and the curtains and blinds throughout the house were either damaged or missing. On a brighter note, the property manager was very attentive and responsive to requests we made.

Brent M. from League City, Texas recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 The Grass had not been cut in a few weeks and was very overgrown. The internet and the phone did not work. After calling Javier and told him that noghting was at the house that we requested, several hours later and a trip to the local hotel store for some pringles and diet cokes. I spent $77 dollars at the store in front of the Wyndam. The phone, internet and grass issue was finally resolved on Thursday. We arrived on Saturday at 2pm. Javier arrived at 6pm. Nobody ever mentioned the dive shop that the entire hotel next door will use and walk thru your back yard the entire time you are there. The temp cooks Rosie and Selia were awsome, always on time and the food was incredible.We had a great time because it was our vacation and it was Cozumel but the house could have been better with a different (Javier).

Phyllis B. from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 When we signed up for the vacation I put down a $1000.00 deposit which was not part of the rental amount. I believe we left the house in the condition in which we found it. I was wondering how soon I would receive the deposit.
Property Manager Response:
We refund the damage deposits within 5-7 business days. Your full refund was mailed on June 26. We are very happy you had a great vacation.... At Home In Cozumel
Jorge Luis I. from Mexico City, DF recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2008 Pictures tend to be not acurate when displaying a property. This one is for real and uncover few details of a very well designed and equiped place where you can certainly feel at home in Paradise Island.
Ted K. from Prospect Heights, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2008 Great place! We had 15 people, and had plenty of room. I highly recommend the cook service: great authentic Mexican food, and plenty of it. Since we all went scuba diving several times, the location next to the Sand Dollar Dive Shop was perfect. We watched the sun set every evening from the backyard. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the privacy to enjoy your own pool, while still being close enough to enjoy the beach and all it had to offer (water sports, etc.).
A guest from Columbia, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2007 We had a great time. A good location next to the dive center allowed us to wander over for lessons and go out on trips at our convenience without the hassle of driving. We had 12 guests, which were easily accommodated by the spacious rooms. My only complaint was that the weather was hot and still. Even though the commons areas were airy and had fans, with no A/C it was a bit uncomfortable with the inevitable sunburns. The room air conditioning units were unreliable. The management was responsive, articulate and helpful. The pool was refreshing and beautiful. The architecture was striking and the diving was exceptional. Overall, a very good choice.
