About Bob & Sandy Dickie

Bob & Sandy Dickie live just South of Denver . We moved to Colorado in September of 1999. My 1st visit to Isla Mujeres was 2010 and after four visits I talked my wife into purchasing Sotavento #15. It is a dream come true and I'm sure you will agree. I'm also sure you will fall in love with Isla Mujeres.

Bob & Sandy Dickie purchased this condo in 2015

Why Bob & Sandy Dickie chose Isla Mujeres

The owners: The Dickie family resides in Colorado about 17 miles south of Denver. We moved to Colorado from California in 1999 with my wife. We have two daughters age 17 and 22. I will be retiring in three to four years and we hope to someday make Sotavento Isla #15 a semi-permanent home.We visited Isla Mujeres since 2010 and we fell in love with the Island, the Culture, the people and the restaurants. And especially how safe you feel on the Island. We bought the condo on my wife's second trip.

You'll have to see it to believe it. The views are breathtaking and unbelievable on all three floors.

What makes this condo unique

Private roof top terrace with private sun bathing and quite nights with a view.

Magical. Clean. Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I am still dreaming of being back at Sovento #15. The condo had the most magical views I have ever seen on all three floors, no exageration! The condo was comfortable, clean, and very functional for our family of four. I am usually very picky and I honestly have nothing negative to say about the property. The location is also perfect. Away from the hustle and bustle of down town yet close enough to get get there with ease. We heard live reggae in the early evenings from The Joint (only until about 8pm) which was was so fun. Across the street at the little beach club was the best snorkeling we have ever experienced, and only for five dollars a person. We saw sea stars, many tropical fish and large conch shells one of which my nine year old found. The memories made here were unforgettable and will last a lifetime for my me and my family. Last, Bob and Sandy have the cutest style ever. I loved all of the kitchen amenities, cute pillows, games, rain fall showers, grills, games, and so much more. We are counting the days until spring break next year. Out of all of our travels, this was by far and away our very favorite. Thanks to Bob, Sandy, Kate and Isaac, all of which made our stay extraordinary! You have set the bar very high and we don't plan to vacation anywhere else in Mexico other then Isla because of your amazing hospitality! Thank you thank you thank you!

paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

I have given days of thought on how to even write a review on such a place as this. I want to do the beauty of this condo justice in my review. I have told many people since our return home that if there is paradise on this earth that this would be it. We have stayed on this island numerous times before but always on the north end. We were somewhat nervous staying on the south end of the island. It was so quiet and peaceful that we loved it. We rented a golf cart for the week which in my opinion is a must. We loved our drives down the island everyday. When we were taken in the condo to be shown around upon arrival it took my breath away. The views from each window are the best views you can ever imagine. The condo is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We loved that it had a washer/dryer. There were lots of towels and even cards and games for playing out on the balcony. The air conditioners were perfect. We stayed here with our grown children and we had more than enough room for all of us. We all thoroughly enjoyed the pool every afternoon. I even liked that the internet was somewhat slow and only usable in the living room as it kept us all in touch with home but not on our devices unnecessarily. We also loved that we had access to snorkeling right out our front door. Contact with the owners prior to going and upon coming home was great, we were offered help with whatever we needed and always provided an answer to any questions. We will be going back to this place. Loved our trip and we were all very sad when we had to leave.

Beautiful Condo located on south end of Isla

  • 5 of 5

This condo is really nice and the perfect accommodation for a family of 4. Location is great and views are beautiful. We visited The beach club right next to the property a couple days and it's super cheap and really nice. I would recommend getting a golf cart if you are staying here. we made daily trips to the grocery store and nightly trips into town for dinner and music. Overall we had no complaints about the property. We would stay again!

Beautiful view from every patio.

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't have had a better view of the ocean and skyline of Cancun. The sunsets were awesome and the accommodations were great for our family of five. The steps up to the first level of the condo were a challenge for me as I am handicapped, but with assistance from family and staff I was able to go up and down a few times per day. (Good exercise!) The only issue we had was the people below us smoking. Wish the entire complex could be smoke-free. There was no problem with sewer odor as written in previous reviews. Kate and Natasha were helpful with our introduction and recommendations. I would recommend this place to families as well as couples.

Great condo/complex, but weird odor

  • 4 of 5

This was our 8th time to Isla Mujeres. Wonderful island and by far Sotoavento is our favorite complex to stay at over other resorts, houses, and condos. The southern tip of the island is quiet and peaceful. This condo has beautiful balconies, great view from the top of the penthouse, with plenty of privacy. condo has everything you should need during your vacation. Staff is friendly and very helpful with any questions or concerns you may have. Condo is safe and secure.

The only downside to this unit is the smell that previous reviews have stated. Even with buying air fresheners for plug ins, candles, and stationary air fresheners you could still notice the smell. Candles seemed to work the best. But smell was always noticeable, especially in master suite. We have stayed at Sotoavento before in a 1 bedroom #13 which is right below this unit. It was around $700 for the week. We would probably recommend renting two of the 1 bedroom units to avoid the smell. If the smell could be resolved then we would definitely rent this unit again. But the strong odor would make us choose other wise.

Owner's Response: James, Sorry for the late response. I have taken over the rental bookings and finally read through all of the renters reviews. I am not happy with a few reviews mentioning the odors and I am sorry you had to encountered the bad odors. I did look into it was told it is all fixed and any odors of sewer are gone. Not sure why this happened but it is being monitored weekly with or without guests. Regards, Bob

INCREDIBLE VISTAS LUXURY ACCOMODATION

  • 4 of 5

Sotoavento #15

Very comfortable condo with all the amenities for a family vacation. The location is at the far southern tip of the island which makes it a little remote if you don't have transportation. We rented a golf cart for three days during our eleven day stay. The first two floors are the main living area we seldom used the upper terrace were the barbecue is located. Because the main floor is fourty stairs from the street it's a challenge just using the first two floors of the condo. Not recommended if you have knee or hip issues. With the infinity pool and the Garrafon Gastillia located just below the condo we had many enjoyable days in the water.

Staff and management of the condo were all very courteous and helpful. My damage deposit was returned within a week.

The one unpleasant concern was the frequent odour of sewer gas that was more evident in the evenings. All the drains had rubber stoppers over them but still the odour was evident. It's unfortunate considering the value of the complex that this problem exits and I don't believe it's temporary. Because of the stairs and odour we would not return to Sotoavento.

We moved to the north end of the island and stayed right on the main street of Hidalgo for our last week.

Map

Car: not necessary

A former fishing village, Isla Mujeres still retains its “small-town” charm. This beautiful island just opposite the busy island of Cancun is only 5 miles long and barely a half-mile wide. Surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean, Isla Mujeres boasts an average temperature of 80° F and the weather remains pleasant throughout the year.

Surrounded by coral reefs populated with a bounty of colorful marine life, Isla Mujeres is a paradise for divers and sea lovers. The natural beauty of the white sand beaches on the northern side and the stunning cliffs on the south form the breathtaking seascape of this enchanting island.

Location

Isla Mujeres is only 45 minutes away from Cancun International Airport, one of the most important airports in Mexico, with direct flights from the largest cities in Europe and the USA including Boston, Miami, Chicago, New York, London, Madrid, Paris and Frankfurt.

History

The history of Isla Mujeres dates back to the Mayan Empire. It once held a sanctuary dedicated to Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of the moon, who governed fertility and the tides. The Spaniards discovered the island in 1517 and named it “Isla de las Mujeres,” which means island of the women, for the many female figurines they found on it.

As the years went by, Isla Mujeres became a favored refuge of buccaneers and pirates, and later, during the 19th century unrest in the Yucatan Peninsula, many people fled the mainland and came to live here.

Local Attractions

Hacienda Mundaca

One of the most interesting sites on Isla Mujeres is connected to the legend of a famous pirate: Fermin de Mundaca. According to the legend, this fierce pirate fell deeply in love with a local girl and decided to settle on the island. He acquired a huge piece of land and built an impressive hacienda, only to be spurned by his beloved. He is said to have gone mad from grief.

The site where this hacienda formerly stood has been converted into a museum and the extensive grounds hold a small zoo with local fauna.

El Garrafon

This marine park is on the southern tip of the island and it is one of the best sites for snorkeling on Isla Mujeres. There are also zip-lines and fun activities for the entire family.

Archaeological Remains

The Mayan ruins of a temple dedicated to Ixchel, ancient deity of the moon and the tides, can still be found on the southern tip of Isla Mujeres. While the remains are not particularly noteworthy in terms of size or architecture, the view from the top of the cliffs is positively breathtaking.

Whale Sharks Every year, from late May to September, hundreds of whale sharks visit the Mexican coasts as a part of their cyclical migration; their gathering site is only an hour away from Isla Mujeres by boat. Whale sharks are considered the largest fish in the world but they are quite gentle and pose no threat to divers and snorkelers. To swim among them is an exhilarating experience
