Custom designed by the owner to combine the best features of island living with the comfort and luxury to which you are accustomed, El Castillo Maya has two beautiful palapa areas for your relaxation and enjoyment. The “Tortuga Palapa” on the second level just outside of the Tortuga Suite to the open terrace where there is a private entrance to the Master Suite. Up another level above the Master Bedroom Suite is “The Blue Moon Palapa”, a large rooftop terrace, partially shaded featuring a colorful crescent moon bar with a blue glass-block base topped with turquoise blue glass crystal. With lots of bar stools and lounge chairs, friends, this is an incredible place to meet with family and to enjoy refreshments and conversation at your own home!

Island-themed tile and stone handwork can be seen throughout on the floors of the palapas and in and around the house. Carved rails adorning the exterior staircases and the interior stairs and carved handrails are fashioned of salam, a local exotic hardwood noted for its durability and dark burnished beauty. Glass blocks are strategically placed in walls to welcome sunlight, and in the master suite to showcase a collection of seashells. Local art is displayed on the walls and throughout the house.

The house was designed for maximum versatility. The ground-level oceanfront two bedroom unit has a large living room opening onto the pool deck and ocean beyond through sliding glass doors. A fully equipped kitchen and dining room are adjacent. The beautiful staircase leads up to the second floor Master Suite, which can be rented separately by locking the door at the top of the staircase and entering through a private exterior entry, or used as the master bedroom of a three bedroom house. The Master Suite has a King bed, a Jacuzzi tub with panoramic ocean view, a kitchenette area, with sink, fridge and coffee maker.

The additional separate Luxury Studio, with full kitchen, full bathroom with shower, queen bed, and couch can be a private and complete fourth bedroom, or can be rented separately. The entire villa is attractively and comfortably furnished to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Above the Luxury Studio, you will find the newly built Tortuga Suite. It features a king size bed, kitchenette, sunlit shower room, large screen TV and a private terrace overlooking the ocean. Like the Studio, it can be added to complete the 5 bedroom house or is available separately, depending on the season.

El Castillo Maya sits side-by-side with Casa Azul del Caribe, another new house with four bedrooms. Owned separately, they share a lovely patio and swimming pool with swim up bar. They can be combined to sleep 16-20 people, making this a perfect place to host a family reunion or a wedding. The entire complex is nicely landscaped and has plenty of off-street parking for golf-carts and other vehicles. What a great place to enjoy your island vacation!

Excellent property in great location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families with 6 adults and 4 children. It was wonderful having separate bedrooms for the adults and the children as well, with one room for girls and the other for boys. The view from the master suite was stellar. The kitchen and main area in the house was very comfortable and roomy for the entire group. The group went deep sea fishing and we cooked fish tacos that night and felt very comfortable doing so in the kitchen. With go carts it only took about 5 minutes to get to north beach for beach, restaurants and shops. The Chedraui grocery store was also super close. There were delicious restaurants within walking distance as well. Excellent home away from home!

AWESOME! Best vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 5 night stay. Already planning to return next year. Stay was wonderful. House was better than the pictures. Had hot water. Rare find in Mexico. House was perfect. Lots of room for large family. Adult sons with wives stayed in the suites and were very comfortable. AC was cold water was hot. Previous reviews stated lack of beach. We went out to the water and fished off the rocks and swam. It is accessible just a little rocky. Lots of room to lay in chairs on the decks of the house so we didn't need a sandy beach. Irma the housekeeper was wonderful and hooked us up with her cousin who took us snorkeling and then made us the best fish for supper we have ever had. I would give it a 10 if I could. Mango cafe best food on the island is 1/2 mile up the road. LOVED it!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We (group of 5) stayed here for 5 nights & had a blast! The house is in a great location. We rented golf carts & drove around the entire island. Multiple beaches to choose from, near by restaurants even waking distance, shops, & grocery stores. The house is gorgeous. Has ac, hot water, tv, & wifi. Priceless views, especially from the balconies. So nice & breezey. The pool is a plus! You can swim while looking at the ocean. The house keepers were so friendly, too! We definitely will return!

This was a perfect stay for a large group. We had a group of 5 couples (10 people) each with their own room. The main house has two bedrooms on one level that each share a bathroom. The upstairs suite has it's own tub, shower and private balcony with an ocean / pool view. The the other 2 couples each stayed in the back part of the house. Each of those rooms also had their own private bathrooms. All of us enjoyed time at the pool, but note that the pool is a shared with the adjoining property. We were lucky and the other house guests were great!

The only cons (but not worthy of adjusting our rating): wish there was a Jacuzzi/hot tub that was either on the pool deck or on the upstairs palapa. Also wish it had a beach. However, the public beach (North beach) is just in town and it only costs 20 pesos to rent chairs and an umbrella for the day. Oh a side note...the pool was the perfect temperature.

Other than that, the service was great. The house manager checked in with our group the first day and asked what we might need. He also showed us the "house phone" if there were any problems. He gave a great suggestion for breakfast at the MANGO CAFE and it is a must. No problems at all....great house, great location! We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Good to can order pizza delivery from Oscars for nighttime hangouts by the pool.

Wonderful home. Beautiful vire

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. We took our kids and new grandbaby. The house was set up perfectly for a large family. Great location. Lots of help if we needed it. We would for sure stay there again

Only negative was the Internet. I planned to work while we were there and the Internet connection was horrible. Had to use the hot spot on our phone. Could never get out on their connection

A great week at El Castllo Maya

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 spent a very enjoyable week in December at El Castillo Maya. The house and property is exactly what the pictures on the web depicted. We enjoyed the pool area and the warm gulf breeze but the rooftop palapa was our favorite hideaway. We moved up a coffee maker and enjoyed seven glorious sunrises while sipping fresh coffee and enjoying breakfasts. The view of the island and gulf from the palapa is breathtaking. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining and living room area is roomy and comfortable. Carlos, the property manager was very friendly and spoke English very well. He was a great resource for finding the best restaurants, hangouts and things to do. Don’t miss the Soggy Peso! Taxi service was readily available only a half block away and was very reasonable. The Caribbean Quean in the uptown area was our favorite beach hangout offering free lounges, umbrellas with great beverage and food service. Thanks Bill and Kathy for a wonderful week at your beautiful island home.
