Just got home from our 3 night stay and we have nothing but amazing things to say about the property, location and service! We stayed in room 24 the room was beautifully decorated and very functional. Plenty of storage and both the ceiling fan and ocean breeze helped keep temperatures cool. Unfortunately it was a bright full moon the entire stay so we missed out on seeing a sky full of stars but next time for sure. The daily included breakfast (when booking direct) was a wonderful way to start the day as was the coffee station set up downstairs in the common area by 7am. The menus had a variety and something for everyone. The bed was comfy and filtered water was delivered daily, although we stopped at a store on the way from the airport to pick up a few water bottles and beer. Service was outstanding and grounds were kept well maintained. While this was our first visit to VAM, this will for sure not be our last.

We love the words used to describe Ventanas, even we’ve tried several times. There aren’t any! We go all the way back to 2005 and the days of Coco and room #1 being a 2-story. Back then we’d spend days all alone. The setting is unmatched anywhere. Ventanasalmar doesn’t compete with it, it compliments it. Its little idiosyncrasies are welcomed. Charm, beauty & patina. We’re amazed how well everything is kept….in such a harsh environment. This go around we divided our 2 weeks between the Tree House and old #1. The Tree House. OH MY!. A complete different perspective of the property/landscape. The room and SHOWER to die for! Access is the spiral stairs (from the days of room #1) genius! Though we could go on & on……..we’ll do it again next year. Mark & Alison Virginia Beach, Virginia

My wife and I have stayed at Ventanas al Mar for years now, and we will keep coming back. We love it. It is quiet, rustic, beautiful, and peaceful. The rooms are all comfortable and have amazing views of the Caribbean blue water (we recommend the lower level rooms so you can step out onto the sand). The staff is long-tenured and have always been so so good to us. The food and drinks are tasty and unpretentious. Some recent upgrades like the mattresses and the interior lighting have really made it perfect. You will need a car, or just commit to a very relaxing stay at the hotel — it’s about a 20-25 minute drive to the core of downtown. And this place is not for loud partying and drinking — if you’re into that, there are far better places on the island for you. This is for people that appreciate quiet, serenity, and the beauty of Cozumel. To Miguel, Omar, Nikol, Dalia and all the other people who work so hard to make our stay perfect, gracias and thank you!

I found this place by accident, I was looking for something special in our short visit to Cozumel. And what I really found, a hidden treasure. I have no words, you have to experience this place for yourself. We loved it and it certainly wasn't our last time here. Thanks to the staff, we had a wonderful relaxing time. ❤️

I hesitate to write this review because part of me doesn't want anyone to know about Ventanas al Mar so we can keep this place all to ourselves! My husband and I came here for a long weekend. This was a last minute trip and to be honest, Ventanas al Mar was not our first choice, we ended up booking here because the small hotel we were looking at on the west side was full. And I am so glad it was! Otherwise we never would've experienced how wonderful Ventanas al Mar is! We were looking for peaceful, quiet, relaxation and that is exactly what we found. We loved it so much, we are planning on returning next January. If you are looking for a typical Mexico all inclusive type resort, this is NOT your place! We had a superior room on the first level. It was a spacious room that had a small patio that looked right out to the ocean. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It appears as though the room had recently been updated/decorated, except the bathroom which looked original. The bathroom area was small--single sink, toilet, and small shower. I believe some of the other room types have bigger showers or bathtubs if that is a concern for you. For us, this worked just fine. The only downfall to the room was that there was no mini fridge in the room. Again, I believe there are other room styles that do include a mini fridge, I didn't realize this when booking. It would've been nice to have an area to keep water bottles or other beverages cool. There is only AC available from 8p-8a (which is stated on their website) because the hotel runs on a generator. Even with this, our room was always comfortable because of the breeze off the ocean. The common areas are beautiful. A small restaurant/bar is right next to a cute pool. There is no fighting over pool or beach loungers here! The beach when we were there was not swimmable because of the waves. The food was good. The drinks were good. The afternoon margaritas and guac by the pool were the best! They will serve you down by the beach too. Be aware the food/drink prices are higher than what we found in other areas of the island. There is also a bar next door called Coconuts. Everything on the east side of Cozumel closed around 7pm. And it is dark! No street lights. Because of this we had our dinners at the hotel. The staff! Very friendly, attentive, and helpful. The staff work hard to keep the hotel looking nice and this does not go unnoticed. On our first night, we had an issue with our patio door not locking, but this staff immediately fixed this for us. Helpful info...book through their own website or call them to book, do not use third party booking sites like Expedia. If you book directly through them, the stay includes complimentary breakfast. We did not know this and had booked through Delta. Make sure to pick up bottled water on your way to the hotel--it will be cheaper. Don't be scared by some of the reviews that state the beach area is full of garbage. The area around the hotel the beach is clean. Further down, you will find washed up plastic and such--but this is not the hotel's fault, blame your fellow humans for this.

This was my second stay at Ventanas al Mar, and it was just as lovely as I remembered. If you're looking to unwind in a peaceful and quiet spot, this is the place to go. It's on the Eastern side of the island, which means it's the only hotel nearby. The hotel itself is set right on the beach, with most rooms perched on a small cliff over the ocean. The views are spectacular! It also means you get the wind coming off the waves, keeping your room cool -- essential since you only have access to AC during the night. The hotel also has a pool and a restaurant on site. We can't wait to return.

Peaceful, serene and spectacular views of the Mexican Caribbean - wow! This hotel hits the mark on all things - from the housekeeping staff to the waitstaff hosts (Miguel and Carlos), we enjoyed every minute in this magical oasis. You'll need to take a taxi or rent a car to get here, but it is worth any hassle you might encounter.

This is a very quiet and beautiful hotel! We have always stayed at all inclusives when we go to Mexico, but I’m glad we tried this. We stayed in the “romance” room with the bathtub. Of the 22 rooms they have, make sure you stay in the main drag and not the treehouses. Each of the 16 that face the ocean are the nicest and most luxurious. You can also hear the ocean as you sleep. The restaurant on site is reasonably priced, but I wouldn’t say the food is exceptional. We stayed over New Year’s Eve and they threw a wonderful party with a live band, dinner and a piñata filled with free stays if you were fast enough to grab it. The hot water was ample when no one was using it- however during peak times it was impossible to get a hot shower. The wifi was the same way. There is NO SERVICE here and the wifi was spotty at best. When we left this morning, there was no wifi at all. Do not plan to take work calls here- you will have to go into town for that. There is a great walking path that goes about 20 miles north to south that passes right in front of the hotel. Nikol was very sweet & called a rental company for us to get bikes and ride to some of the shops nearby. DONT GO to coconuts next door. It’s a huge tourist trap, extremely overpriced food, and just mediocre quality. We paid $70 for a burger, guacamole and beef tacos. In fact- don’t plan on going to any of the restaurants on the east side. They are ridiculously expensive and not worth it. Plus you get a lot of the cruise traffic. Definitely rent a car if you can. We rented from Emily Rentals for $45/day. That’s as much as some will charge you for a scooter. The hotel is 30 minutes from the airport and town so if you plan to leave and don’t want to spend a fortune on taxied, plan on renting a car. Also, because this hotel is on the east side of the island, the wind is always very strong. If you’re a cold natured person like me, plan to bring some long pants and a wind breaker for dinners on the patio. Otherwise the staff couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating. This is not a luxury hotel, but if you’re looking for a relaxing get away from everything, this is the spot.

The location is beautiful. Our room was lovely with the amazing sea view we had hoped for. The pool is nice too. It is amazing to just step out into a white sandy beach and appreciate the turquoise sea. A paradise. It was not possible to swim there as the waves are big but very beautiful to see. The only negative was that we did not feel very welcome on arrival. There is no reception desk and when we found a staff member it was not easy to obtain something as simple as hot water to make tea other than in a very small quantity and we were made to feel that we were asking for something difficult. A smile on arrival would have made us feel so much more welcome. The breakfast staff were lovely however and helped us find out about taxis etc. car hire is probably a good idea for a longer visit but a staff member recommended an excellent taxi service which was ideal. Overall a lovely tranquil stay just disappointing not to be given a friendly welcome on arrival after a long journey.

My sister and I recently spent 6 nights at Ventanas al Mar and had such a magical time! The rooms are simple but nice, with great touches like beautifully carved wooden furniture and fun fish tiles in the bathroom. Our view was incredible. The hotel staff were incredibly kind and warm, they constantly went out of their way to make sure we were having the best possible experience. For example, it was my sister's birthday while we were there and once I mentioned it, Omar organized a very special dinner (which my sister loved!). The location is gorgeous, peaceful, and remote. The meals we were served for breakfast and lunch were delicious.The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful every day. Each night we sat out on our private balcony listening to the waves and reading our books while lightening flashed in the (very far!) distance and the moon rose out of the sea... it was absolutely idyllic. I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay, I will definitely be back! Thank you very much too Omar, Esteban, and everyone else who made our stay so lovely! <3 Carley & Molly
