Why David Hammer-Owner chose Colonia Andres
For several years, I wanted to develop rental units for tourists, both to generate income and for a winter vacation home. As an attorney, I had helped a client buy a duplex in San Carlos, Mexico. In December ‘96, my youngest son and I drove the tourist corridor between Cancun and Tulum, continuing south to Chetamal and inspecting property in every town and fishing village in between. On New Years Day we took the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. I liked what I saw. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, friendly people, and a healthy economy. It has the same small town atmosphere of my home town in California where you can walk the streets at night in safety. Cozumel is a world premier SCUBA diving location and has unique Mayan ruins. There are excellent restaurants, large supermarkets, friendly people, a one of the best Carnival celebrations in the world.

Friends and I stayed for a week in one of the two bedrooms. Everything we needed was there from towels, to utensils, to appliances. The condo and the grounds were very clean and very well maintained. I didn't have the opportunity to converse with any of the staff but some in our group did and they were very helpful. It's just a few blocks away from the grocery store and some good restaurants. Getting to the pier or just about anywhere else in town was just a few dollars for a taxi ride. We are already making plans for next years dive trip to Cozumel and Casa Martillo will be part of our plans.
Thank you for the great review. I am glad you and your group enjoyed your stay at Casa Martillo. Our goal is to provide a hassle free vacation rental. We look forward to hosting you again in 2020.
My stay at Casa Martillo
I've been staying at Casa Martillo for the last 10 years or so at least once a year. The property is well managed, clean and safe. It's only a 3 minute walk to the ocean and 10 to Barracuda Hotel reef where I train my scuba students and/or board scuba boats. It's incredibly easy, reasonable in price and I'd highly recommend it to all my friends and/or relatives.
Tom, thanks for the great review. I am glad you chose Casa Martillo again and I enjoyed meeting you, your family, and your SCUBA diving student. I look forward to hosting you again. Best regards, David
Terrific Place to Stay in Cozumel!!
We highly recommend you staying here on your next trip to Cozumel. So much nicer than any hotel especially the price. It has all the comforts of home and more. A pool right outside your door, AC, full kitchen, TV & maid service. Property is beautifully kept up. Location can't be beat. Two big supermarkets nearby in a very safe neighborhood. Cabs are plentiful but walking to town or the water is also easy. Staff is great & helpful. It also has a place to hang your wetsuit, if you're divers. Please choose Casa Martillo next time. You won't regret it.
Thanks for the great review! We look forward to your next visit. Our goal is for Casa Martillo to be your home away from home.
Home Sweet Home!
Spent two weeks at Casa Martillo and it felt just like home! We were 5 adults and slept very well. The staff is simply amazing! Everything was perfect. Close to everything, walking distance from Mega and Chedraui supermarket. Clean place, safe place! I do recommand it!
