A friend stayed here a few years ago and recommended to my girlfriend and me. We wanted a relaxing vacation with a little bit of beach time, but nothing that was overly-touristy and made us feel like we'd never left the USA. Our bungalow was simple, but that's all we needed- it was essentially a place to sleep. Though having said that, the place is extremely charming, with curved white wall, thatch rooftops and a friendly dog to greet us at the gate every morning and night. Jorge was an excellent host, preparing us a tasty breakfast each morning and helping us with tips on how to get the most out of our time in Cozumel- the best place to snorkel, the best place to rent scooters (which is definitely the best way to get around the island- inexpensive and lots of fun), good restaurants, bars, etc. Amaranto is a short walk from the waterfront and lots of shops and restaurants, without being right in the middle of all the cruise ship hubbub. In short, if you stay here you can relax, enjoy the island vibe, and still get a solid dose of real Mexican culture.

My husband and I stayed here over a long weekend to snorkel, dive, and see a little more of the island than we'd seen on previous trips. For the price we paid (about $60 with breakfast) it was a good value.

The room we stayed in was a large palapa with a king-size bed, private bathroom with shower, and lots of amenities: A/C, ceiling fan, kitchen area with fridge, sink and microwave, a hammock, safe deposit box, reading selection, etc. The bed was very firm because it was just a mattress on top of a concrete slab. Also, the room let a lot of light in, so it was difficult to sleep past sunrise (about 6:30am). The shower had lots of pressure and hot water. No bath amenities were provided so bring your own shampoo, conditioner, and soap.

The breakfasts were just OK. Coffee and orange juice, small fruit plate, then the breakfast of the day which varied from eggs to two slices of french toast to three small quesadillas. It was decent, but there was definitely room to improve on the quality and presentation.

The owner Jorge was the best part of Amaranto. He was very helpful and friendly, and always around to answer questions. He was generous with bath towels and toilet paper, and helped us set up a rental car, which came and picked us up right at the B&B. He also pointed us towards a dive shop that rented us a wetsuit for $5 and then let us leave the wetsuit at the B&B, which was really convenient for us.

Like any hotel or B&B, it's all about your expectations. If you are expecting a five-star quality place then you will be disappointed. But if you want somewhere clean, affordable and comfortable then Amaranto fits the bill.

This was our second time staying here. Our host, Jorge, was very accommodating. He gave advice as only a local can on where to go and what to do to make the best of our time. We wouldnt have known to look for the giant "pirate" grouper at Chakanab or where to go to see the blow holes on the east side. Those things arent mentioned in guide books. Manuela make us delicious breakfasts every morning, making it easy to get out of bed. We love this place and will definitely be back. We miss Nohotch (means "Big" in Mayan) the dog who lazily acknowledged our comings and goings. It all made for a memorable stay.

We came to Cozumel for the Ironman event at the end of November 2011. Loved the little bed and breakfast, Jorge was a very gracious host and we meet others staying there from around the world. I'm glad we stayed here instead of some of the all inclusive that our friends stayed. We were able to try several wonderful restaurants and still save money vs. what the resorts cost and staying in town gives you a better feel of the life on Cozumel. The rooms are very unique & charming. Wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We had the room at the end of the walk way , so it was the most private. Also, Jorge showed us the larger room that has a look out tower , very cool! If you have kids they'd love it!

Amaranto was great! Tucked away down a side street away from the busy main road and cruise ships. But still within easy walking distance of anything you may need. Very friendly owner, Jorge, who will help you out with anything you may need. A great place to meet other travellers or chill and read by the cool pool.
Had a wonderful stay at an amazing price! Our room was huge! Great little kitchenette and bathroom. Very clean. We recommend it in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Book ahead online because he has limited space and fills up quick! Bring your own snorkel gear out to Cozumel as there is no where to rent it and tours are unnecessary as you can just walk off any beach. Jorge arranged a scooter for our stay and we had a blast touring the island.
