My husband and I have stayed in Penthouse 709 consecutively for two years. This is a big deal to us as we could have spent that money anywhere else in the world and we chose Ixchel Beach Hotel - Penthouse 709 in particular. For those who travel to a warm place from a very cold place like us (reaching - 40 in Winnipeg, MB, Canada in the winter) we highly recommend visiting this amazing and very relaxing spot of the world. We met several people that are completely hooked to visiting Isla and now we are included in that group.
The staff at the Ixchel is tremendous, especially Giovanni who was very kind and generous with his time. Additionally, the cleaning staff did a great job and always had a smile on their face. For such poor people, it certainly humbles you.
Penthouse 709 has the most remarkable view of the island. The room is extremely private and has direct access, from your beautiful and large wrap around deck, to the sunsets. It almost felt like we could touch the sunsets...it was majestic! The remainder of the room feels like a home and not a hotel. It's warmly decorated and the owners are friendly and eager to assist with questions. They provided maps of the island and recommendations on where to eat (and there are SO MANY wonderful places to eat). There are little things the owners provide that increased our happiness with the stay such as shot glasses, comfortable pillows, cooler bag, change jars, internet booster cable, etc. These little things combined with the privacy and the captivating sunsets creates a warm and comfortable place to stay.
My husband and I have stayed in two other penthouses for a short period of time (not by choice, waiting to get into 709) and believe me when I say, Penthouse 709 is truly the best option! You simply cannot stay anywhere else but if you have to Ixchel is an overall charming and beautiful place to stay.
