What a wonderful visit. I got to enjoy Cozumel off the beaten path -- cruise ship folks! I went on vacation to escape a city and got a small town feel.
The location is on the South East corner of town in a primarily residential/small business area. There is a little street noise from traffic in the mornings and from the small industrial lot across the street during the day. At night there is hardly any noise. A little courtyard in the back has nice trees and flowers. I enjoyed seeing small song birds, humming bird, and lizards from my private patio.
The rooms are simple: Bed, ceiling fan, A/C, fan, bathroom, in-room mini-fridge, Hammock (in some rooms), access to kitchen area and ice. Free wireless internet(the cement walls can make reception tricky, I enjoyed ok connection on my patio). Room cleaned daily with fresh towels. Hot running water at all times. Water pressure isn't too high, but this is typical of the town. Water pressure is made by houses putting storage tanks on the roof and using gravity.
Alicia is very welcoming and allows you to escape on your own and not feel like you need to visit. She is originally from Oregon, USA. Chuco helps her run the B&B. He makes a large breakfast: fresh cut fruit, chips&guacamole, and an omlette or waffle or nachos for breakfast. I was asked if I had any meal preferences, so they can be accommodating.
Access to town centre is easy. Walk: 35 minutes, Taxi(25 pesos) 5mins, Bus(5 pesos) 20 minutes. Taxi to Caleta Marina (for some scuba charters) 12 minute taxi (50-90 pesos, depends on driver). There is a large store (SanFrancisco) 4 minutes walk away too.
2 pleasant dogs guard the property. The maid who cleans is very honest with regards to property and money (something that never came to mind when booking).
