My husband and I recently returned from our first trip to Isla Mujeres. We spent our stay at La Vida Dulce Casitas, unit #2. Even though there were only two of us in the larger unit it worked perfect. The setup allowed the early riser to close the door to the back half of the unit and watch TV, have use of the half bath and kitchen without bothering the other one still sleeping. The bedroom bath has double sinks so we could get ready at the same time and with the shower being separate the humidity from it was never an issue like in most bathrooms. I loved the lighting because in addition to the electric light there were also plenty of windows and skylights to bring in natural lighting including the glass block section in the wall separating the living room and bedroom (loved it!). The amenities at La Vida Dulce far exceeded our expectations: pillow-top mattress, plush pillows, sheets & towels, free wi-fi & phone calls home, kitchenette w/microwave, pizza oven, fridge, BLENDER, coffee pot, dishes, etc. And those little things we take for granted at home like nice flushing toilets, plenty of hot water, water pressure, a/c, etc., we never gave a second thought to because we had them all at La Vida Dulce. Steve & Jeri, owners/hosts, were extremely knowledgeable about the island and everything is literally right around the corner or down a block. And even though we were staying around the corner from downtown our sleep was never disturbed by any noises. In fact, after dinner one evening my husband and I came back to our room and went up to the rooftop (there’s a nice area on the roof with chairs, plants, etc. for guests to relax) and we sat and listened to mariachi bands playing in the distance. Other than renting a golf cart one day to drive to the south end of the island we were able to walk everywhere else we wanted to go. It’s obvious Steve & Jeri put an extreme amount of thought into the design of this place in order to make it mucho comfortable for their guests. Thank you & we’ll be back!
