Great Family and Friend Vacation

We loved our stay at the Ixchel Beach Hotel! The location is wonderful and situated on the beautiful Playa Del Norte beach. The beach service was great! Angel took care of our needs for food and beverages while we lounged under our unbrellas. We will absolutely stay there again. We have been to Isla many times and this is the best hotel value with the best beach.

Just got back, usually stay at Marriott hotels in Cancun. Wanted something more laid back. Nice property, had ocean ft ste with huge balcony. Spent the evenings on the balcony watching the sunsets. Great place to unwind. Great staff, eager to please. Everything withing walking distance. Nice beach although this is a public beach. Many boats come over from cancun.Will stay there again.

Mamacitas has $10 pitcher margaritas and mojitos! Took pitcher from room and filled up. Beer is about $14 pesos at the supermarket at the end of the street. Rent a golf cart or scooter and drive around the island, great fun!

Great family get away.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Maricio is fantastic. Giovani Also does a great job an is very friendly. Beautiful and clean hotel grounds. View is amazing and pool is pristine. Staff never left us enough towels after cleaning everyday, but they would bring them right away when we'd call. Maids leave envelope for tips for cleaning the room--this is somewhat annoying since that is a standard included service (everyone on the island tries to find a way to either get u to buy something from them or tip them for doing something.)--once you get past that it is a great place & our family had a great time. Appropriate for our kids (9 & 10 years old). Hotel is very close (easy walking distance) to stores and numerous restaurants that are delicious. Always know what to expect in change because most places will try to short change you. Don't expect the towns-people to be generally honest, because they are not. However this is not the case with the hotel staff--they are great.

Wonderful Time in Isla!

Ixchel is a fantastic place to stay - I can't say enough about how nice it is to have lots of space and a full kitchen, especially if you're traveling with kids. The rooms are spotless and everything is well maintained. There is really good water pressure and REALLY HOT water (watch out for this with little ones!). Kitchen is nice and well equipped. TV's have many channels to choose from, even some in English. The pools are a bit small but very nice and well heated (apparently a rarity in Mexico). Our daughter actually liked the pool better than the beach. Amazing because the beach is fantastic! Crystal clear shallow water extending out everywhere. If I didn't know better I'd have thought it was man-made. We really liked it here, but as this is a review allow me to nitpick a bit. here's what keeps me from giving them 5 stars: -front desk staff is very professional but almost to a fault. They could be a bit personable. Hats off to the concierge however, he was very engaging and friendly. The wait staff and house keeping staff seemed quite friendly. -Our room was very plain given that it was a penthouse. Don't get me wrong, it was nice, but just a bit sterile. I suspect that nobody owned this unit so it was lacking any personal charm. -Restaurant is expensive and limited. Not really a problem as there are so many wonderful restaurants in walking distance. Small nitpicks aside this is really a top notch choice for staying right on Playa Norte. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again (we'd just pick a different room).

Great hotel

Great vacation. The hotel was amazing. Beach chairs and unmbrellas always available. We had no problems with the disco next door. It was very quiet. The beach was wonderful. The rooms were kept clean and they were very attentive whenever we needed anything.

Great location, pool, snack bar and staf

Rooms are spotless and sleek...all beautiful tile. Bath is large and divided into shower/toilet and sparate mirror/sink. Bedroom had a large king and living room had a futon. Balcony is large and overlooked pool and ocean. We were on the third floor in the newest bldg. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt with any requests we had. Kitchenette very nice.
