This place didn't match previous reviews. It's in a quiet location but is a long way from the centre- map is deceptive as there's quite a walk between each block. We had booked a double with shared bathroom but were given a twin room. When we pulled the beds together it was obvious no cleaning had occurred for sometime including a dead cockroach. The bathroom was filthy but was cleaned when we asked We booked it specifically for the self catering but the owner let us use kitchen begrudgingly.

We booked based on the quite positive reviews written previously. We booked 3 nights in a private room with ensuite for 700 pesos per night. What we got: - 20min walk from town (not advised to walk after dark) - dirty room - stained bath towels with holes the size of golf balls - no hot water - cold eggs at breakfast if you're not there first - no curtain over bathroom window for complete privacy - no AC We left after 2 nights and got a room in town for 550 pesos a night. Much better
This is actually the owner's home, and we found Txepo to be very welcoming and kind! Despite the fact that we stayed in his house, we still had a lot of privacy, as the whole house is like a magic labyrinth of courtyards, terraces and towers. It is worth taking a taxi from the ferry, as it is about 20 mins walk (without suitcases); however this is where the real locals live and there are plenty of superb cheap eateries. It was a lovely place and we were sad to leave!
Txepo would go beyond his means to make you feel at home and will provide information about the island so you have a great time. You would have interesting conversations with an Arquitect that loves nature and animals, traveled around the world. I stayed 6 nights and have a great time in Cozumel. The bed and breakfast is a beautiful construction with an amazing garden and the staff will prepare delicious breakfast! Thanks Txepo!
This was a really unique place to stay - Txepo, his mum, his dogs and cat were great hosts and really looked after us. Txepo organised our taxis and scooter hire and gave us the insider info. The breakfast (awesome fruit salad and delicious scrambled eggs) was refreshing after facing so many bowls of cornflakes in Mexico. Our room was comfortable and the whole place is really cool. This was a welcome stay after so many impersonal hostels - we really felt like part of the family.
