Nicely located just 5 short blocks from the shore.

  • 4 of 5

A very clean and well maintained property close to shopping and the very popular main street along the waterfront. Any problems were quickly resolved by a very accommodating owner who provided invaluable information on local attractions, shopping and dining. The locals were polite and friendly but it seems that just about everyone has a dog that would sometimes get loose and leave something on the sidewalk. So watch where you step! The kitchens are a bit small but you quickly learn to work as a team, one at a time when preparing meals. Don't miss the annual festival in February if you can make it. The best parade we've ever seen!

The property was very nice and neat.

We stayed at the Dodo Residential from the beginning of January until the end of March. We were well taken care of and the staff (Nelly and Geraldo) were gracious and very helpful. Philippe was very prompt with any problems that came up (very few!) and gave us some good ideas about where to find great vegetarian cuisine.

Don't hesitate to stay at the's close to shopping, restaurants, the beach, and if you plan on staying awhile, a big laundromat just around the corner!

Beautiful tropical home away from home!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two month stay at DoDo apartment. Philippe and Dellfie, the owners were great. They were very helpful with any questions or concerns and attend quickly to your needs. Nellie and Geraldo, the maid and grounds keeper, are so friendly and keep everything clean and manicured. The beautiful garden with tall palm trees makes this a hidden oasis with a tropical feel you will love. The location is great. Half block from the Mercado for fresh fruit, veggies, meat and fish. Close waking to grocery store, laundry mat, convenient store and inexpensive local restaurants. We loved our stay in beautiful Cozumel and look forward to coming back! Guy & Melaine
