  • Fantastic!

    "This was our second time staying at Castillo del Mar and we loved every minute of it. This trip we brought two teen girls with us that practically lived in the swimming pool which is surrounded by tables, chairs and loungers and is such a relaxing and welcoming space. We ate many of our meals out on the oversized patio - there are tables and seating galore! The house is equipped with lots of games, a large TV in the living room loaded with movies, and a good library of books - all of which we enjoyed. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean, the housekeeper obviously takes pride in her work! The large king beds are super comfortable and nicely appointed with high quality bedding. The views from the patio, kitchen and living room and also the bedrooms are of the beautiful Caribbean Sea and since we can never get enough of it, Castillo del Mar is perfect, for sunrise viewing and ocean watching! We liked the neighbourhood very much and would walk each morning along the sea and then through the colonia. This area has lots of restaurants nearby and we felt very safe - always. I read the review below this one, and it just doesn't seem to 'fit' with the area and how we saw it. For one, when we entered up the stairs through the locked gate and onto the poolside terrace, we felt very private and well protected. Also the house has many locks and we always felt completely safe. Although it is unfortunate, construction is an ongoing event on the island, but that is not something that can be controlled. We were glad to meet the neighbours and the owners of the new house that was recently constructed next door. It is very nice and adds an upscale feel to the neighbourhood with their tiled mural above the pool and super friendly owners. Thank you Phil and Bernadette for sharing your Isla home with us! Would we return to Castillo del Mar? To the wide open views of the Caribbean Sea? To those large, comfy beds? To that chef's kitchen and to those loungers and pool? Yes we would! In a heartbeat."

  • Still the best property on Isla Mujeres

    "This was our seventh year at the house. We only get two weeks in March to be there and the time flies so fast. It's home to us now. Perfectly comfortable and happy. We so enjoy the walking trail to Punta Sur and traveled it almost every day. What views! In fact we walk many places at that end of the island. There are many fine restaurants in Colonia La Gloria and the area. Don't miss Limon, Mango Café, Playa Lancheros, Capitan Dulche, Caribbean Brisas, La Bruja and so many others. We enjoy the neighborhood and all the local people there. We've made so many local friends on Isla and enjoy our yearly visits with them. The house has a such a feeling of quiet and isolation even though the area is busy with tourist traffic on the main road. Inside the courtyard and outside on the patio, you can't even hear anything but the ocean and the birds. The house is very clean and comfortable with all the conveniences you'll need. If you're nature lovers and enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place. We've already booked for 2017."

  • PERFECT but shhhh we don't want too many people to know!!!

    "My husband and I stayed at Casa Sonrisa for 9 nights & it was everything you could hope for & more. Spacious, safe, clean and the amazing ocean view right from your bed. Enjoyed everything about the Casa & there is not one thing I would have changed. The only reason why I wouldn't want to write a review so it does sell out so quickly, a place like this is a "gem". One little suggestion I thought would be helpful is if the Casa came with a little cooler you could use to bring your cold drinks to the beach. If that was my only problem to this property, then you know how fantastic everything else was. I would go back here the rest of my life if I could & more importantly I hope to return next year. Thanks for the amazing Casita, the owners deserve a big round of applause for their hard work on giving us such a perfect place to stay."

  • Casa La Bella is truly beautiful and relaxing....Isla Mujeres.........Perfect Spot!

    "We just returned from what was as good a family vacation as one could ever wish for. Casa La Bella's owners need to know how much we appreciate the detail that was put into this house. The patio and pool were the favorite spot. We often had a difficult time deciding whether to stay at the house or go to Play Norte. We did both, so all was good. The weather was next to perfect as well. I think I counted 20 drops of rain on the patio one afternoon and that was it. As always, Isla provides many choices for local cuisine of all varieties. This year the USD averaged 15-16 pesos in exchange at most restaurants, so the dollar went further here than in the US. We will certainly work on getting back here again. I recommend Casa La Bella and Isla Mujeres as a destination for any occasion. Once you enter the door you start to relax as the views hit you from all angles. I will end this as I close my eyes and imagine entering Casa La Bella again!"
