Why Cecilia Alvarez-Heard chose Isla Mujeres


I am proudly Mexican, from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and my husband Andrew is from Leicestershire, England. We spent our honeymoon in Isla Mujeres in 2003, then we traveled to Quintana Roo in 2005 with my parents, sister and nephew,during this trip my dad suggested we take a day trip to Isla Mujeres...

While there, Andrew and I decided to take a walk along Playa Norte and this is when we saw Ixchel Condos under construction.

My husband Andrew and I live in USA now and in Isla Mujeres I feel reconnected to my beloved Mexican culture and my country that I miss a lot... Isla Mujeres is a wonderful place, so Mexican, with friendly people. Isla Mujeres is in our hearts and it brings to us such happy memories of our lives, our honeymoon, our trip with our kids, with our Mexican and English family, is indeed WONDERFUL to go there and feel and remember the life that I use to have when I was a little girl, seeing the locals living their lives, sitting outside their homes, smiling to people, oh!!! that reminds me of my life in Mexico that I miss a lot...

We invite you to visit Mexico! Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo and the other states in my country! Mexico is beautiful, Mexico has lots of culture, lots to learn!

Viva Mexico!

What makes this condo unique

Our penthouse has a wonderful terrace with lounge furniture that my husband Andrew designed.

You will be able to host a party and have a BBQ in our easy grill! Bring your iPod and enjoy the surround sound music...

Do you need a bartender or somebody that can help you to throw a party? Just ask me.

Alternatively enjoy the peace and solitude of the private terrace spending time between the jacuzzi and the giant sunbed both with wonderful views of the beach below...

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The BBQ on the patio area was a real bonus

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. We have been to Ixchel 3 times now and this was the best property we have stayed in. Housekeeping were lovely, the Managing Agents were very helpful.

We had a couple of hiccups with the initial booking and were a little worried when we were unable to get hold of Cecilia easily, however that being said she did always respond and this would not deter us from staying at this lovely property again.

We would definitely recommend this property to our friends.

Wonderful condo in a perfect location on the best beach ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Cecilia's condo with our toddler twins for the second summer in a row. We are not the type of people to vacation in the same place twice, much less the same hotel/condo, but Penthouse 504 has a great set-up and is in such a perfect location that we couldn't resist. The upstairs deck/hot tub is ideal for families traveling with small children so parents can still have fun once the little ones are in bed. The pool downstairs is great and rarely crowded (and has lots of pool toys you can borrow), and Playa Norte is a dream for little ones with its clear, shallow, gentle, warm water. Highly recommended!

Worn out

  • 3 of 5

The property was nice, but the room was definately showing signs of its age. The curtains were falling off and the decorative pillows were torn in the living room. We stayed there a few years ago and they had a projector and a screen on the roof, that was gone. The spa on the roof was dirty when we checked in, we called a few times during our stay to get it cleaned and have the chemicals (like chlorine) added but noone ever came. So we were disappointed about that. The sliding glass door on the patio was difficult to shut so we were constantly slipping on the tile and falling as we tried to close the door. If the weather on the island had been better we would not have spent as much time in the room and it would not have mattered, but as it was, the hotel room was where we spent most of our time so all the little things bothered us.
