About Paul Mila
Paul J. Mila retired after a successful corporate career, and now devotes his time to writing, scuba diving around the world, underwater photography, and speaking to groups about ocean conservation. He has enjoyed the opportunity to photograph and dive with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas, humpback whales in the Dominican Republic and the South Pacific Tonga Islands, diverse sea life in the Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Bonaire, Hawaii, Antigua, and in his home waters off Long Island, NY. Paul's underwater pictures have been featured in magazines and on web sites related to scuba diving. Following the advice of writers who said to write about what you know and like, he has incorporated the ocean and diving as the core of his writing. FIREWORKS is his third novel. Diving in the same waters as the characters in his books has enabled him to write with realism, and to describe for non-diving readers the beauty and wonder of exploring our undersea world. He and his family reside in Carle Place, New York, a small town on Long Island.
Paul Mila purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Paul Mila chose Cozumel
I decided to invest in Cozumel for several reasons: First, the residents are consistently friendly and welcoming. Second, the scuba diving and snorkeling in Cozumel are world-class. Finally, my dream was always to own a beachfront property.
What makes this Condo unique
I love early morning breakfast on my balcony, watching the dive boats pass by. Or saluting the sunset with a margarita in the evening. It is great to walk out of the condo carrying mask & fins and snorkeling right off the beach. Your choice of Beachy food places or fine dining are only a short walk along the beach. The town of San Miguel is easily accessable, only 8 miles or a 20 minute car ride away.

Great responsive owner and very helpful
I did not actually get to stay in this condo as I was called home midway through my vacation to deal with the corona virus shutdown of my business. Paul was most gracious and gave me full credit for another visit which I have already booked with him. I can't wait to get back there. The place is beautiful. Paul was very helpful with everything and I highly recommend you stay in his condo. The onsite manager was also excellent and very eager to help even though I had to leave early. 5 stars all the way.
Look forward to your return to Cozumel.
We try to treat people as we would like to be treated in a crisis.
Great Beach Location
This condo has a great view of the beach and ocean! Easy walking distance to appear to be picked up for boating excursion such as scuba diving. Highly recommend.
Thanks for your review & glad you had a good time. Hope to see you again on another Cozumel visit.
Escape to Paradise
I have stayed at the Reef several times in different buildings. For this trip it was just me and my husband so the studio worked perfectly for us and was very comfortable. Steps to the beach and the view just can't be beat. If you are a diver the dock is right outside and the complex has dunking tanks for your gear. The condo was equipped with plenty of hooks to hang your gear outside. We would definitely return to this unit.
Thanks for your review. Our staff appreciates hearing that our guests have a great visit. look forward to seeing you again.
Super clean and spectacular.
The property was exactly as advertised. Super clean and the view from the deck is spectacular. We enjoyed it very much.
Thanks for visiting and glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to having you return.
We had a lovely week in a spotless, quiet property. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Beach was just fantastic! (I am glad we had our water shoes to get past the rocks to snorkel.) And I LOVED the heated pool! Cabs were easy to get, and reasonable. Snacks/meals were purchased at Mega when we just wanted to relax. Coffee on the patio every morning was delightful. Many nice restaurants in town, but our favorite was Guido’s. The beautiful garden setting, staff and fabulous food were a treat. We hit Pancho’s Backyard on our way to the airport, and that was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely return to Cozumel. Loved the property!
(If there was any issue, the pillows were a bit flat for our taste. An easy fix next time - we’ll just get a few pillows in town.)
Glad you enjoyed your stay in my "little slice of paradise."
Per your suggestion, new pillows are on order.
Thanks again & hope to see you on another Cozumel visit.
