Recent Isla Mujeres reviews
R&R abounds at Ixchel
"First & foremost, thank you for the lovely stay at Ixchel. This was our 25th anniversary & we couldn't have asked for anywhere better on Isla Mujeres. The views are beyond compare. The spacious terrace begged us to visit it as often as possible. Both the sunrises & sunsets were observed every day of our stay. The interior of the condo is equally as inviting. You won't lack for a thing. Overall, it was just an extremely comfortable place to call home during our stay. We feel very blessed to have been able to visit & stay here."

"We just got back from a wonderful vacation at Ixchel, on Isla Mujeres. I cannot say enough about the condo, and its amazing location. The staff, both at Ixchel, and on the beach were very attentive to our needs, and made this vacation amazing. To have such a beautiful place to stay, that is on one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, is more than we could have hoped for!! And to be short walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on Hildago street was a bonus. We had the most wonderful dinners there, every evening. I want to personally thank the staff at Mundaca, and condo owner Clyde for taking care of anything we could possibly need, before, and during our stay. We are already planning our next trip back!!"

A wonderful corner suite to relax and enjoy the tranquil blue waters of the ocean
"This was our first time to Isla and I was awestruck by how beautiful it was. This condo provided amazing views of the beautiful turquoise blue ocean. Each night we would relax out on the wrap around balcony with a glass of wine and watch the most incredible sunsets we've ever seen.
The condo is very nice and provided all the comforts of home including a fully stocked kitchen with a full size fridge and freezer. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed waking up to the ocean view that we could see right from our bed. They provided bottled water in the room, which we used to fill our water bottles before heading out to the awesome white sand beach right outside the door downstairs. We also liked that you could get a clean beach towel each day downstairs.
The staff were very friendly and so accommodating. Whether it was setting you up on the beach with loungers and umbrellas or serving you refreshments and food right on the beach. They even filled up our air mattresses for us. The soft white sand beach is really clean and well maintained. We walked down the beach a little ways and found a great place to snorkel and see colorful fish (including Dorys as my kids called them), squid and even an octopus.
There are a wide array of shops and restaurants within short walking distance. There is also a market about a block away that we were able to get fresh fruit, pastries and freshly squeezed juices, which we would often have for breakfast. One of the kids favorite treats at night was a street vendor who made these treats called Marquesitas. They started out looking like crepes which turn into a warm delicately crunchy roll up, that were filled with bananas and Nutella.
We also rented golf carts (which is conveniently located right across the street). This allowed us to access even more of the wonderful restaurants and parks. The coconut french toast at the Mango Cafe was as wonderful as everyone said. There is also a turtle sanctuary on the island, where the kids enjoyed seeing all the baby turtles. But the best part of the trip for me had to be swimming with the whale sharks. They are these gentle giants and it was so very cool being able to snorkel alongside them as they lumbered by. We went through Isla Mujeres Water Tours with Jorge De La O. They were super accommodating and even made a crevice lunch with fresh caught fish. I would highly recommend them.
Thank you for sharing your place - It is amazing!!!"

"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!"
