I stayed on Cozumel for 3 weeks (this being my 5th trip there) and I can say this place is my favorite by far. It's an amazing cozy little villa and I enjoyed coming home at night as much as going out! Everyone is super friendly, things were clean to my mom's standards (which is almost impossible) and I always... More

We purchased a dive package with Dive Paradise through IslaMar and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the price was excellent with the dive package. The Villas are a few blocks back from the main drag, but that's a good thing. The neighborhood is quiet, there is great authentic food in walking distance, and the... More

We visited Cozumel in March 2016 and stayed at the Islamar vacation rental location for a week. This location is a great place to stay. Cozumel is dominated by the Cruise Ship industry and Islamar is far enough removed from the crowded areas to give guests an authentic experience of the community apart from the tourist crush. At the same... More

IslaMar is a great place set back from the beachfront and big resorts. It is living in Mexico, if you get my drift. IslaMar is back perhaps 6 or 7 blocks from the resorts. We wanted something different this time. I loved being back with the local vibe. There are restaurants with amazing food back here. You walk to them.... More

I loved staying here. The purpose of my three-week trip was to improve my Spanish and learn about Mexican culture. This was the perfect place to do it. Islamar is in a decidedly non-tourist part of town, which means you're far more likely to glimpse the heart and soul of Mexico here than you would be at a beach resort.... More
