Perfect Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time to Isla but my first time in Villa Tranquila! This house was everything we could ask for! My husband and I took our 3 grown children and their friends to the island for a Christmas gift over Thanksgiving! The house set-up was good and everyone basically had their own space! We loved the 3rd floor covered deck overlooking the ocean. We would drink coffee in the morning and enjoy the view and sunrise and would end most nights up there in the breeze listening to the ocean and sharing drinks and stories from the day! We may be back! Thank you for sharing your house with us!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This villa was absolutely amazing for a group of 7. The rooftop is a bit windy but it didn't deter our group from enjoying it. The rooftop has awesome views and the villa is just a couple minute taxi ride to Isla Centro/Playa Norte.

Nice enough for the price. but the noise...

  • 3 of 5

Located near the north end (which is why we booked it), with beautiful views, and the property is fairly clean. However, the en suite bathrooms are extremely tiny, and zero privacy due to the saloon doors, where the toilet is directly on the other side. The property is quite cut up due to the open walkway through the center.

Each of the upper and lower lockout rooms had a refrigerator, coffee maker (the one in the lower unit leaked), and drinking water (the manual pump in the upstairs unit did not work). Also, no shampoo, coffee filters, or coffee are provided, only one bar soap, and towels.

Very noisy, making it hard to sleep as well. Due to the property being right on the street, you could hear every vehicle passing by. During the night, the pool filter pump would kick on around 4:30am, waking the tenants in the master suite. (Seems the pump should be scheduled to run during the day rather than when everyone is sleeping). The upper lockout suite had noises as well, according to the tenants in that room.

Very dangerous spiral staircase up to the pool (3rd level), made it hard to carry anything up and/or down. The toilet on the pool deck - the only privacy is a glass block half wall - I don't think so!

On a good note, I informed the property manager of some issues, and they were addressed immediately!

Would we stay again? Probably not - too windy, and there are just too many steps (two spiral staircases) for us to have to deal with - but more than likely okay for younger, more energetic folks who can handle it!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Villa Tranquila with five friends over our Spring Break. The property is absolutely beautiful! It is right on the water, so the views were beautiful and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves every night was heavenly. The property was about a ten minute walk to town, however we rented a golf cart for our stay which made it very convenient to get around. We felt very safe inside the house and didn't worry about much when we left for the day.

The house and kitchen were all very clean and lovely! We constantly utilized the living space downstairs as well as the roof top pool and bar area! The house really had everything you could need for your vacation.

We worked with a woman named Vicki when renting the house, and she could not have been more accommodating.

The only possible con I can think of is the stairs on the property are very steep and get slippery when your in and out of the pool and due to the humidity. Therefore, you may have to be careful with young children or anybody with decreased mobility.

Overall we had a great experience with the property and recommend for any group or family staying on Isla!

A Mixed Bag

  • 3 of 5

I've thought a lot about what I would say about this home and decided to just list the pros and cons.


-The location is convenient. It is close to town and you can walk it but the sidewalks are narrow and it's not a quick walk anywhere. Golf carts help.

-The maintenance staff were helpful. We had an issue with a locked bedroom door that they quickly resolved and had a toilet that leaked badly that needed repair. They responded quickly in both cases.

-It's good for a family that wants separate living areas. We brought our two adult children and their significant others and it gave everyone plenty of space.


-It was very windy during our stay and the spray coated every surface with a thin film of moisture that made walking on the floor and steps treacherous.

-The third floor outdoor area and pool are only accessible by a narrow curved staircase. If someone has trouble with stairs they can't access it. The wind prevented us from using the area most days,

-We've rented houses in several locations in Mexico and have certain expectations for homes. Most homes come equipped with an oven (only a stove top here), have left-over grocery items (none), and have a variety of toiletries (we only had bath soap). The maids only came once during the visit so we ended up taking trash out and doing some basic house cleaning.

-It was difficult to find an outdoor commons area that was a good place to hang out due to the wind and moisture.

-We usually like to turn off the air conditioning and enjoy the fresh sea air. It's not possible here due to the wind.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Villa Tranquila! I do know what you mean about the wind. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do about the weather. I hope we got the toilet issue repaired in a timely fashion. Jim, Madelene, & Sasha........Villa Tranquila Isla Mujeres
