Perfect for the money and the honey...

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I visited Cozumel for the first time to complete the Ironman and have a second honeymoon/early anniversary. We didn't want to spend a lot of money, so we looking on VRBO and found this cute little apartment for a very reasonable price with great reviews. It is exactly as pictured; small, but not too small, and cute with the front door looking out over a beautiful little garden. We kept the windows open most of the time to welcome a nice breeze and used the AC in the bedroom for a cozy sleep at night. The bedroom and bed is nice and big, but the mattress was a little hard and stiff for us (we're used to memory foam), so I recommend grabbing a memory foam topper for cheap from Mega Store if that concerns you. The location is perfect, right next to the Mercado where you can eat traditional local food in the morning, around the corner from arguably the best dive shop on island (Deep Blue), and walking distance to the best restaurants we found (try the Argentinian Paradilla place, its to die for, and Marina Del Sal, which is like a spa restaurant, and Guido's Italian, amazing). Phillipe, Delffi, and their delightful cleaning lady will welcome you with open arms and take great care of you (ask about their honey - yum!). We will definitely be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your stay and kind review as well as nice recommendations, Jason and Nandi. We were delighted to have you here with us at Dodo's and will be glad to have you back next year with us for the Ironman. We greatly recommend you to future hosts as well and will certainly check on the King Size mattress of the apartment you were staying if it is a little harder than our other mattresses. We wish you happy holidays and congratulations for your second anniversary! Philippe & Delffi

Was a great experience. Philippe and Delffi were wonderful hosts. Our apartment was clean, comfortable and the property was secure and safe. Was within walking distance to the main square of San Miguel. Looking forward to staying here again.

Dodo Residential March 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough superlatives for me to describe our fabulous experience we had at the Dodo Residential in San Miguel.

The location was as advertised. It was close to all one would need for an extended stay vacation. The Central Market was less that one hundred meters away, and the OXXO, and a fabulous laundry facility were right around the corner. There was a variety of restaurants with great food all within walking distance.

Delffi greeted us at the gate as soon as we arrived from the airport (which is only 2 kilometers form the Dodo). We were immediately impressed by the cleanliness and coziness of the building, and our room. We also felt very safe. The neighborhood was as friendly as our landlords and our housekeeper Nellie.

While there, the lever to our toilet broke. I notified Philippe and it was fixed within an hour. That was impressive.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Dodo Residential to anyone; friend, relative or total stranger.

An oasis in the middle of the city

  • 4 of 5

This one bedroom unit in this three level condo, was well furnished with an small kitchen good for preparing breakfast, The Garden is by far the best feature of this unit. The beautiful mature trees and flowers add a charm plus a nice shade to keep the place cool most of the day. The unit is 10 mins walk from downtown and next to a local market. It's very centrally located. We had a rented a car and had no trouble parking in front of the unit on the street.

Philippe and Delffi were always available and very friendly. We stayed here for a month and Nelly cleaned our rooms and had fresh towels for us every other day.

Philippe also has his own Bee farm and had fresh delicious honey for sale which we brought back home as well.

Overall, a gem in the middle of city close to all amenities.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

This apartment, within walking distance to everything, met all of our needs. The friendly and knowledgeable owners were available promptly with even the smallest of needs, but more importantly, provided privacy for us to enjoy what we needed...solitude. The property was clean and well cared for. Residents in next door units were courteous, friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again, although might request that the bed be updated. All correspondence from beginning to end, was professional, courteous and smooth. We very much appreciated being able to stay here. It's popular, so book your reservations early.

Great choice for value "Base Camp" in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

Compact apartment is designed for longer stays, but worked well for our visit of just a few days. Location is a 5-min walk from the main tourist zone and close to many restaurants, including the Mercado. AC in bedroom worked well. It's an older building with basic furnishings and is very clean and quiet (rooms face an inside courtyard, so are off the street). Best part of stay was owner (Philippe) was very gracious, and the fellow neighbors were an interesting and friendly conglomerate of snowbirds. We rented a car one day from ISIS which was just a few blocks away and had a great time and went to several beach clubs (enjoyed Paradise Beach Club as it has a great pool).

Note, this is intended as a small apartment community - it does not have the same amenities as a hotel.
