My girlfriend, friend, and I had a fantastic experience at Gabriela's apartment in San Miguel over New Years weekend. First of all, the location of the apartment was perfect. The apartment is located only a few blocks away from all of the most interesting parts of San Miguel (for a visiting tourist), including many of the restaurants, bars, and shops, the taxi station, ferry terminal, and town square. Despite its close proximity to all of this, the building that this apartment is located in is quiet and peaceful.
The apartment itself is clean and spacious with plenty of light and access to outside air via screened windows. Though not luxurious, it is simple and functional with a kitchen, refrigerator, lots of storage space, a big bathroom, and an enclosed porch. The futon in the large living room was great for our third person. Gabriela keeps an extra set of sheets handy for it if the need arises. The only difficulty we had with the apartment was that the wifi was occasionally spotty and unreliable.
Last, but not least, Gabriela herself was an incredible hostess. She communicated promptly and reliably both before and during our stay, and was straightforward with us the whole way through. When we did arrive, she was excited to have us and even more excited to recommend places for us to go and check out. Her recommendations ended up being great and we really appreciated the advice. For our stay, she was nearly always accessible and came over a few times to show us around and talk to us about recommendations. She also helped us do some research on car rentals and snorkeling trips, since we hadn't fully planned those things out before arriving in Cozumel. We kept in touch with Gabriela throughout our stay via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), and she was genuinely interested in how we were liking things. She was always quick to offer her assistance to us for making plans, which proved very helpful.
Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment, if not for the location and cleanliness then for Gabriela alone. She was great and really allowed us to fully enjoy our time in Cozumel.
