Some friends and I had a wonderful eleven night stay in the upper level of Casa Roca Caribe in late March of 2011. Isla Mujeres has been a yearly vacation for us for a number of years, so we were familiar with the island. Making home base mid-island though was a first for us, quite different from the hustle and bustle down town area of El Centro we were used to. Another first was being ocean side with the continuous fresh sea breeze and constant waves rolling in just outside our window. We all were anticipating a quiet, peaceful, relaxing get-away and Casa Roca Caribe delivered just that.

Our unit had two bedrooms, two baths (one full & one 3/4), a full kitchen with additional room for dining, all connected to a large living area with a grand view of the colorful Caribbean waters through a patio door onto the rear deck. The deck itself was small, but large enough to hold a big jacuzzi tub and a couple of tables with seating for six. The unit was tastefully decorated and included a number of amenities like TV, DVD player, stereo, microwave, a safe, wi-fi, and free bottled water. Each room had a king size bed. Mine was a bit too hard for my liking, but I've found thats's typical in Mexico. We also made use of a washer & dryer available in a common area of the lower level. The owner, Jimbo was an excellent host making sure we had everything we needed and that all was in working order.

The house is located on a residential street and is surrounded by homes on all sides except the back. So though it didn't have the traffic noise of Centro, there were other sounds visitors should be aware of. These included roosters crowing, turkeys gobbling, dogs barking and street vendors calling out their arrival. Our favorite of the street vendors was the “bread man” with his fresh tasty breads and baked goods. Some great dining nearby included the Mango Cafe, the Blue Iguana and Monchies restaurant. Ronco mini super is across from the Mango Cafe, nice for picking up necessities - orange juice was a favorite of ours. Also taxi's could be easily hailed on that corner for a short ride to other island destinations.

Casa Roca Caribe allowed us to “disconnect” (no electronics except music) and totally kick back and relax. We spent much of our time reading our favorite books, searching for shells and sea glass, and sipping cocktails while solving the worlds problems over great conversation. Oh, one last thing, the sunrises were awesome!

Room Tip: Either level (lower or upper) are both great.

We were welcomed with 2 frosty glasses in the freezer and music in the background, and after a long travel day from Xcalak, well this was a perfect way to start our stay at Jimbos comfortable casa. We felt right at home, Jimbo is nearby and always available for anything you may need! You really can say he is quite the concierge, especially when it comes to eating....he knows the best restaurants on the island!

We stayed pool level, very roomy for the 2 of us! The beds were quite cozy and the giant poofy pillows, AWESOME! Not to mention the view from the bed in the morning as well as the pool! I enjoyed my breakfast poolside watching the sunrise! Ahh to be back there right now!

Thank you again Jimbo, your hospitality is the BEST! You are truly a GEM!

Cheers,

Judy and Ron

A wonderful place to stay in the middle of the Island. The owners are extremely helpful and make you feel at home. The upstairs is very comfortable with a beautiful view that you can enjoy from the hot tub. We had a fantastic time here!

Casa Roca Caribe has 2 large apartments. We stayed in the lower level with small swimming pool. The master bedroom & living room open up to a splendid view of the Caribbean. The apartment is large, comfortable & airy. we were 3 adults(couple & grown daughter). There was more than enough room for all of us. The bathroom is a good size with enough towels. We didn't do any cooking as restaurants were abundant & inexpensive but the kitchen had a big fridge & plenty of glasses, cups & crokery. It also had a coffee maker but no kettle which we thought a little strange.
Casa Roca Caribe is in a typical Mexican neighborhood just a short cab ride from centro. The cabs are plentiful & cheap (about $2). It also took us about 15 min to walk to town. We liked the location.
The owner lives upstairs but when the upstairs is rented, he moves down the street. He is keen to please. I believe that this is his 1st year renting so there are a few kinks to iron out. It would have been helpful, if the bath towels were not all the same colour as it is difficult to tell whose is whose. They are also a little small. We had a small problem with the water running out & it was difficult for the owner to figure out what was wrong. However, we got it sorted out & he graciously gave us a bottle of complimentary winet to
compensate. It is possible that one of the apartments could be rented to a larger group & then there might be some noise problems. This did not happen during our stay but as it is a large suite upstairs with several beds, this is a possibility. I would suggest bringing a good set of earplugs.
We really enjoyed the massage therapist that the owner recommended. She came to the house & gave a wonderful massage to my daughter & me.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay.

Some friends and I stayed at the Casa Roca Caribe before we started travelling around Yucatan in early December and it was just great. A little bit secluded from all the regular tourism, it is a nice spot to relax and start day-trips. Jimbo, the owner, was kind enough to offer us 50 peso rides to whereever we wanted to go which saved us quite some money as all 6 of us fit in his car instead of taking 2 taxis. Around the house are some good places for basic shopping and also breakfast/lunch/dinner, places that recieved the best rating here like the Mango Cafe (50m). In the house we stayed on the upper, so called Jacuzzi level which is freshly renovated and offers a nice Jacizzi for 8-10 people on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It has 2 bedrooms, one master with a nice 32" flat, ocean view and an own bathroom, and another guest bedroom with another bath that we asked to be equipped with 4 single beds . Before we arrived this was our biggest concern, but the space in the room was quite ok and the single bed size larger than usual. The main room contains a large kitchen, a table for 4 and a living room with another TV and access to the balcony. Everything was clean and the kitchen eqipped with some spices and basics left behind by former visitors. This comes in quite handy if you want to cook something. We really enjoyed our stay and Jimbo has been a great host with a bunch of ideas. Thanks.
