Recent Isla Mujeres reviews
"This was our second time staying at Castillo del Mar and we loved every minute of it. This trip we brought two teen girls with us that practically lived in the swimming pool which is surrounded by tables, chairs and loungers and is such a relaxing and welcoming space. We ate many of our meals out on the oversized patio - there are tables and seating galore! The house is equipped with lots of games, a large TV in the living room loaded with movies, and a good library of books - all of which we enjoyed. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean, the housekeeper obviously takes pride in her work! The large king beds are super comfortable and nicely appointed with high quality bedding.
The views from the patio, kitchen and living room and also the bedrooms are of the beautiful Caribbean Sea and since we can never get enough of it, Castillo del Mar is perfect, for sunrise viewing and ocean watching!
We liked the neighbourhood very much and would walk each morning along the sea and then through the colonia. This area has lots of restaurants nearby and we felt very safe - always.
I read the review below this one, and it just doesn't seem to 'fit' with the area and how we saw it. For one, when we entered up the stairs through the locked gate and onto the poolside terrace, we felt very private and well protected. Also the house has many locks and we always felt completely safe. Although it is unfortunate, construction is an ongoing event on the island, but that is not something that can be controlled. We were glad to meet the neighbours and the owners of the new house that was recently constructed next door. It is very nice and adds an upscale feel to the neighbourhood with their tiled mural above the pool and super friendly owners.
Thank you Phil and Bernadette for sharing your Isla home with us! Would we return to Castillo del Mar? To the wide open views of the Caribbean Sea? To those large, comfy beds? To that chef's kitchen and to those loungers and pool? Yes we would! In a heartbeat."

"We started our honeymoon on Isla Mujeres in this beautiful condo. Afterwards we spent some days in Xcaret and Cozumel but couldn't stop saying how much we wished we were still on Isla Mujeres the whole time. The condo has everything you need: wifi, A/C, good water pressure, plenty of drinkable water (water cooler), feels safe, beautiful view, steps from the beach, private pool, and great restaurants. Even a grocery store is a short 10 minute walk. I loved the privacy and the independence of staying at the condo. And the food on Isla Mujeres is great, all the restaurants we tried were good. We have talked about making a yearly trip here we loved it so much. Hopefully we can make that happen. Katie was a breeze to deal with, very responsive and kind. Would recommend it to anyone.
Definitely a home away from home."

"Words can not describe this place. The view was spectacular. Waking up to the sound of the ocean was so calming and relaxing that we recorded it! It was so nice to not hear the noise of daily life from cars and airplanes. We really enjoyed the pool and outdoor area every day. Going to playa norte at Zazilha restaurant for the sunset was beautiful. I have never seen the sun like this before now. We will definitely return to casa vaya vida in the future (my husband wants to move there). This place definitely feels like home in another world. Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo!"

"we just got back from an adults only trip while our kids were at camp. What an amazing home. The infinity pool overlooking Cancun and the ocean was where we lived. You could see eagle rays swimming by!!!!
The house have everything would want and has air conditioning in rooms for pleasant sleeping. For the price you can not beat the privacy you get with this wonderful home. the island itself if charming and not overly touristy. Had some great meals out! Truly only 20 minutes from airport to boat to island, 20 minute boat ride then u are there. People are very nice on the island. Hîghly recommend Casa la Bella and Isla mujeres!"
