Relaxing Get-a-way at Ichtel Beach

Just got back from our stay at the Ichtel Beach Hotel. This was our 2nd time to stay on the island and the first at this hotel - We will definitely stay here again. The rooms and grounds are impeccable - very clean! The location is perfect - right on the best part of North Beach and at the end of Hidalgo St., right next to the shops and restaurants - so convenient to everything! The rooms are spacious - beds were a bit firm - would have preferred a softer mattress, but we still got a great night sleep. The Staff was amazing - always friendly - always smiling. The Concierge at Fase 1 was very helpful in helping us book our return ferry. Alselmo, our waiter on the beach was awesome - he made sure we had a great spot with an unbrella and a table on the beach everyday, and was super attentive. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

Best location on the Isla

Perfect beach front location with the added bonus of being walking distance from the ferry terminal and a stone's throw from the pedestrianised zone where the nightlife happens. You definitely need a room with a balcony though, so make sure you request this in your booking - we got a very good rate on the hotel, shich may have explained the absence of a balcony room!. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Hire a bike instead of a golf buggy to go round the island. It's an easy ride and much cheaper.

A perfect holiday retreat

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room. The room came with a full-size refrigerator, mini-kitchen, and refillable water. The only downside is that we asked for a higher floor room with an ocean view and ended up on the ground floor with a patio that walked out into the pool. We loved that the hotel had lounge chairs dedicated to the hotel at no additional costs as well as servers who would come to take your order. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay here again.

Best Beach on the island!

We stayed in early January 2013, and loved our time with Ixchel. The hotel was great and the beach was phenomenal. The service on the beach was good - if they were faster it would have been perfect but this is an island and they are on island time- thank goodness for this because we would have missed our ferry back otherwise! We upgraded to the front room for the last few nights and it was worth it - The view was unreal and complete with a hammock on the porch overlooking the caribbean! We would definitely do this again!

Always ask how much the items are that you are purchasing it seems if you dont know how much the items are that you are requesting they add on a little more for commission than you would typically pay. Also get money changed at ferry port before going to island. They have the best rate there and it will help with transactions since they dont typically convert to your favor when dining or shopping in general.
