An Island Sanctuary where time is yours... A space to relax and recharge mind, body and soul!
Enjoy the magical healing energy of the sun, the moon, the stars and the waves at Casa Ixchel. You will find a breathtaking ocean front location and ample deck space to bask in nature. Large palapas are available for reading, relaxing, yoga and the opportunity to simply enjoy time with yourself.

The 'Hotelito' or little hotel features eight suites, each with a theme, such as "Serenity' or 'Abundance'. Most suites feature full tubs for purifying and relaxation. Herbs and salts have been selected for your convenience; custom blends are available on request. Small kitchens with refrigerators, range tops, blenders, tea and coffee pots, and of course, cooking and dining utensils are available in all suites but one. Linens are 100% cotton, laundered and sun-dried, a delightfully comforting experience.

Isla Mujeres has been enjoyed as a healing sanctuary and energy center since 1300 AD when the Maya made pilgrimages to the shrine of Ix Chel to make offerings to the goddess of the moon and fertility. We have continued that tradition combining the very best of modern and ancient healing arts.

Area description
The shrine of IxChel is located at the southern tip of the Island which is also the southernmost point of Mexico. People from many parts of the Mayan kingdom and from all over the world to this day bring offerings to Ix Chel. In fact the name Isla Mujeres is believed to have originated because of the large number of clay figures and carvings of the goddess that were found on the Island.

Gem on Isla

My husband and I visited Casa Ixchel last February and really enjoyed it. Our room was one of the smaller ones, but it was comfortable and had all we needed, including a small fridge and enough closet/dresser space for clothes. One quibble is that the bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a curtain, so there is not much privacy. However, I've seen this other places in Mexico, and it isn't a deal-breaker, since the pool area is just a few feet from the room so one person can be outside enjoying the view while the other gets ready. The location is ideal -- a 15 minute walk to Town, but easy to get there, but quiet and out of the way. We had a golf cart (arranged upon arrival at the front desk), and had tons of fun zipping around the island. We had some delicious tacos and guacamole at the hotel, and the margaritas were excellent on the roof-top deck. The beach in front of the hotel is rocky and not swimmable (at least for me!), but you are just minutes from either Playa Norte or quieter sand beaches on other side. We loved Isla and plan to return. We will definitely consider Casa Ixchel for another trip. While the pool/sea view rooms are probably more luxurious than what we had, we wouldn't need to upgrade as we spent very little time in the room.

Honeymoon

At first I was shocked to see that we didn't have TV or phone in our room but since it was our honeymoon, we figured it was ok. We tried the best we could to have a nice time but a few things were wrong: Staff didn't let us use the front desk phone to confirm any pre-booked information; there was no privacy inside the room: bathroom and room in same space; the honeymoon suite was empty when we got there and they didn't let us stay in it because it was reserved for the owner's friends. When these friends came on the day we left, they told my husband that the owner doesn't like foreigners and only book this suite for his friends. What was most annoying was that we booked this with the specific understanding that it was adult only (nothing wrong with kids, we have our own but didn't want them or any others on our honeymoon); well, there were many kids that broke our intimacy. Overall, although the cleaning staff was great, the island in itself beautiful, I wouldn't return to that specific hotel. Thanks for the opportunity to provide my honest opinion.

Beautiful views

Rooms were very clean and breezy, although bed was so big it took up most of the room! Nice deck with pool where we enjoyed breakfast every morning looking out over the ocean with warm breezes. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not where you want to stay if you want to enjoy night life - go to Cancun for that!

Rent a golf cart if you're going to spend any time on the island - it is a great way to get around, and fun!

Great couples getaway

We had such a wonderful stay at Casa Ixchel. The staff was wonderful and we had very personal service. We arrived almost 9 hours later than anticipated and I was worried as to how we would check in since it was so late, but they had it all figured out for us and we were able to quickly drop our bags and get help to find a restaurant that was still open for dinner. The rooms are somewhat basic as there is no phone, tv or alarm clock, but we did not miss those things. They have fee wifi in the room which always worked and the front desk staff made dinner reservations for us which is all we would have needed a phone for. The room we stayed in had a coffee maker, with coffee supplies refilled everyday, a pitcher of filter water everyday as well as a fridge and microwave which was a good plus. The rooms were cleaned everyday and we were given clean beach towels and shower towels as much as we needed them. The walls were very thick and I rarely heard anything except for the sound of the waves. I would definitely recommend renting a golf cart for your stay as it is a great view at the hotel, but you are a bit of a walk from town and different swimming beaches. The cabs are cheap and easy to get, but we enjoyed being able to move around as we pleased. It rained most of our trip, but we still loved the island. We had amazing food even at the Casa Ixchel restaurant and met wonderful people. We usually go to all inclusive resorts, but were so glad we did not on this trip as the island is so fun to explore and there are so many great restaurants and bars. Overall the hotel had pretty much everything we needed and we had a very relaxing stay. We hope to return soon!

Perfect start to our trip

Isla Mujeres was the first stop on our trip through Central America and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of destination or hotel. The island is great with lovely beaches, people and places to eat. Casa Ixchel is in the middle of the island away from the main town which is what we wanted. There are incredible views across the sea (but no beach), the staff are really friendly and helpful and there are great yoga classes 3 times a week which my girlfriend and I really enjoyed. The restaurant does great breakfasts and dinner was also good when we ate there. Our room was always kept immaculately clean, towels were supplied, comfy bed and always hot water. Would definitely recommend and we're thinking of going back at the end of our trip

Place to relax

Liked: Fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kitchenette facilities Direct access to the sea Pool & Sunbathing area Restaurant facilities & Views Good Internet Comfortable bed New A/C Didn't like: Room on a small side Location - too far from North beach where you want to be I had probably the worst room on the ground floor with limited view of the sea, so ask for another one!

Perfect romantic getaway for the money!

Hotel staff welcomed us with a personal sign on the office door and our room door since we were in late! All of the staff, including the staff @ Da Luisa (rooftop bar/restaurant) was always friendly & welcoming!! The room, Contemplation, was simple but all that we needed. Clean & practical! The only thing negative I have to say is the bed was a little on the hard side but not unbearable....still slept through the night! Can't wait to visit again and try another one of the rooms!

Relaxing

This was an ok hotel. For the price they could of at least served breakfast. Other than that it is in a quiet location. It's not right in town but it is in walking distance. Has a restaurant right above hotel. The rooms were clean and nice. noting too fancy. They have mini kitchenettes with coffee makers so you can enjoy a cup of Jo on the deck overlooking the ocean. Nice and mellow.
