We had never been to Cozumel and were unsure about where to stay in preparation for our daughter's first Ironman. We saw CRI's reviews and asked ourselves, "how bad could it be?" and booked our entire ten day stay. We should have asked how good could it be. CRI is a few minutes walk from the ocean and a short drive to some of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches we have ever seen. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have AC although we never needed it because of the wonderful breezes that pass through the room. If you like to cook your own meals there is an open air kitchen that is well stocked, including plates and cutlery, a coffee maker, refrigerator and appliances. Our favorite times of day were mornings sitting in comfortable chairs in the wonderful breezes and in the evenings winding down on the patio lounge chairs. It is peaceful, private and close to everything. Jerry and Leona are considerate, knowledgeable people who helped us with everything from choosing Great! restaurants to finding local experts to help our daughter set up her triathlon bike. We are planning to make Cozumel a regular vacation destination because the island itself is incredibly beautiful, but also because of our stay with Jerry and Leona at CRI.
