Take it easy in paradise

If you come to Isla for an easy, super relaxing break from the world, Ixchel is the right place to stay. The condos are not swank or opulent, but who needs that when you're in paradise? We had unit 408 which was one unit away from oceanfront and had absolutely perfect views. The balcony is huge and where we spent most of our time. Location simply can't be beat.

Playa Norte

Fourth time here. In the past we had a suite, I would recommend that for the refrigerator, however the staff brought in a mini-fridge for us. All rooms have great views of Playa Norte and the hotel is right in the middle of the beach. Very safe swimming for kids and folks who are not great swimmers. Isla Mujeres is a nice quiet real Mexican town, unlike Cancun which is basically Vegas on the beach. One of our favorite places in the world.

We love our Ixchel!

There is a reason why we come back to this place! The staff is awesome, and location is the best! Beach is totally the best! 2 block from all the food and activity!

Garrafon Park - has changed their prices - now you have to pay $5 each time you zipline and $3 for reef tax to snorkel - plus the $60 admission fee. This year we had to go get the drinks! Not worth it.

Great hotel on a great island!

We've been to Mexico many times... Cancun, Mazatlan, Mexico City, Cozumel, San Miguel, and more. I was really impressed with this island. Fewer cars and more scooters (and golf carts)... easy to walk everywhere... great food and service. The hotel - was outstanding. It's a condo-tel... and the rooms are quite spacious and nice. The pools are wonderful and the staff is quite remarkable. Go for a penthouse... the views are amazing.

Just a note on Silver -- the traders on the street were about double - at "best price" what the same things were selling for in the airport silver store. Just saying.

Wonderful

Ixchel is actually a condo building run as a hotel, so the room decorations will vary according to the owner's preferences. Unbeatable location on Playa Norte. Small pool, but very clean. Great service. I highly recommend upgrading to a one-bedroom suite with balcony for an additional $40 per night.

Hidden and Welcoming

Swam, sunned, swam w/ whale sharks, conversed with people who live there, walked everywhere, threw rice at a wedding pary and shook hands w/ the groom, did not see any fast-food stores/restaurants (great!), did not encounter rude people anywhere, travel to and from was pleasantly uneventful; a terrific vacation.
