This is our second time to stay at Ixchel condos, but our first time to stay in Clyde's units. As the reviews state, it does not disappoint. The view is gorgeous and his unit is clean and very well furnished and kitchen is well stocked. Communication with Clyde was outstanding before/during and after our trip. We stayed in Clyde's unit for 6 nights in January 2014 and can't wait to get back. Mundaca, the realty company, that oversees Clyde's unit was outstanding and very responsive to whatever we needed. Chris Shannon, Mundaca Owner was very nice and helpful. Connie with Mundaca helped check us into our unit and she also was very helpful and accommodating. Clyde, "THANK YOU" for the wonderful accommodations! You indeed have one of the nicest units with one of the "BEST" views.

First of all a big thank you to Clyde for sharing his Isla Paradise Condo with us! The views from this condo is priceless. The staff and service from start to finish was excellent. We can't wait to return to Isla and look forward to staying at Clyde's condo again!

Yes the view is beautiful - yes the beach heavenly with its soft white sand and the turquoise water, all reasons to stay here. Once my husband and I discovered this condo, we've come back, this being our fourth stay. Before we boarded the plane to come home, we were already planning our visit for next year. It's not just the beauty that calls us back but the people. Diana the housekeeper is a true gem. She works very hard to leave the condo in immaculate condition and is very helpful in trying to insure the guests have everything they need. She came to our aid when we had difficulties with getting an internet connection - nothing to do with the condo itself - but like we all experience anywhere we come from - system issues. Gratefully she is learning to speak English better every year and has helped us to speak better Spanish! Chris from Mundaca is a real help too. Always available to answer any questions or to guide us in the direction to get the answers. All of this with a cell phone provided by the owners, Clyde and Joan. Each year we return we love it more than the year before - and a great deal of that is attributed to the owners. This year there are even more kitchen utensils and containers for preserving food one might decide to prepare for those occasions you just want to stay in. We can't think of a better place to call home while staying on Isla - and we know, we've stayed in a few. We love the culture of the Mexican people, the kindness the locals extend - though many don't speak or understand a word of English. We find that a good reason to work on our Spanish - we are in their country after all! The locals work harder than I'm used to seeing people work - and in some of the hottest of conditions. We personally hope anyone staying in this condo and on this gem of an island, will treat all - including the locals with the same respect they would wanted to be treated with in their own homes and countries.

This was our second stay in the unit and it was even better than the first. The view of the ocean from the fourth floor balcony is perfect. We enjoyed the pool and the service from the hotel staff was excellent. Recommended.

Everything about our trip, from our first communication with the owner, to our good bye trip to the airport on the day we left, well exceeded our expectations! Not only is Isla Mujeres a perfect paradise, the condo was immaculate, beautifully decorated, cozy, well equipped and maintained. Did I mention the view? Overlooking the beautiful beach and blue, blue water, spectacular sunsets right from the balcony...what more could you want? Everything was within walking distance, the restaurants were wonderful, the islanders so friendly and most of all, we felt safe. There are a lot of vendors both on the beach and in the streets, but hey, it's Mexico...so you come to expect being asked 40 times if you want Cuban cigars or t-shirts. Everyone needs to make a living, right? I must say, the vendors were not pushy...a simple "no gracias" was sufficient. Renting a golf cart for a day or two is a must. We enjoyed a full day exploring the island, (the ocean side is spectacular). We highly recommend the sunset cruise by Induca Charters (see Trip advisor for this information) The beach was so clean, and there was always someone on hand to move your chair, get you a drink or bring you lunch. We have stayed everywhere in Quinta Roo...and the Ixchel condo on Isla is the first place we've said "let's come back here!" One thing to bear in mind: this particular condo has its own management company. If you need something, like a taxi, the front desk is not allowed or able to help you. You are given a cell phone to get in touch with representatives from a separate company. Or, you can do like we did...wing it and explore and figure things out on your own. Thank you, Clyde, for giving us the opportunity to call your beautiful condo our home for a week. Next time, were coming for 2 weeks!

This Condo is Awesome!!
This Condo is Awesome!!
We (family of 4) stayed in unit 409/410 for 8 nights in the middle of July 2012 and found this condo to be very spacious and nicely decorated with truly the best ocean view on the island. The white sandy beach is just a few steps away when you exit the Ixchel tower. This condo came stocked with everything you could possibly need or want- kitchen supplies, cooler, pool toys for the kids, DVD movies, IPOD docking stations, electric grill out on the balcony, beach towels, etc. Clyde’s pictures do not do this place and it's awesome views justice, even the view from the master bath shower was incredible. The cleaning staff were very friendly and professional and offered great advice to several really good out of the way local places to eat. It was nice to have the internet phone and we used it quite a bit while on the island to call back to the states (for free). We have stayed at other places while on Isla Mujeres in the past and I must say that the beds in this unit were VERY comfortable, most places in Mexico, for some reason the beds are hard as a rock- not in Clyde’s unit. The beach right outside of this condo is easily one of the best beaches we have ever experienced and is really nice for kids. Overall I would rate this unit a 10 out of 10 and our family will definitely be back.

We very much recommend Isla and staying in this Ixchel Condo. Everything was perfect and what we expected. The staff at the condo were very friendly and provided any assistance requested. The view from the unit is gorgeous. The beach is very pretty, chairs and umbrellas provided at no charge, and beach service for refreshments very affordable. The people in Isla are very friendly and knew our family within the first day or so. We snorkeled one day, toured the island on a golf cart another, and the highlight was the day spent swimming with the whale sharks. We are already planning our return trip and will stay in this unit again. Recommended.
