“Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

The Ixcehel Beach Hotel was everything I had hoped for and so much more. The ocean front view was amazing, the people incredible and very helpful, and just an overall excellent experience. We spent the whole time talking about how amazing it was and how we couldn't wait to get back. The room was very spacious and we did not hear any of our neighbors. I would recommend to anyone who likes to relax and enjoys his or her leisure time to book and stay at the Ixcehl Beach Hotel in Isla Mujeres.

Room Tip: Prior to going we booked an ocean front suite on-line

We have been visiting this island since1986; however, this was our first time to book the Penthouse (#709) at the Ixchel Hotel. We booked directly through VRBO and were blown away by how easy the entire process was. Upon arrival we were met by hotel staff and given a guided tour of the property and the penthouse. The unit has a huge patio where we enjoyed our morning coffee, and our afternoon cocktails. The patio is equipped with a new hot tub where you can relax and still enjoy the amazing sunsets. There is also a fantastic breeze which is very refreshing. The interior is modern, well furnished with flat screen TV’s (including DVD players) in the living room and bedroom, and there is an IPOD docking station provided. The kitchen has everything you will need including a beach size ice chest and koozies for your drinks! There is a half bath just off the kitchen area and 2 separate A/C units. I have never enjoyed a property as much as #709!

Room Tip: This is not only a beautiful unit but....the very best views on the entire island!

Stayed at Ixchel last year with my family and we had an amazing time. Hotel excellent, staff friendly, location perfect. Staff were helpful and the central North Beach location was the best we could have dreamed of. Whale Shark trips were amazing and everywhere we went for food it was good and reasonably priced. Can't wait to get back.

We are long time guests of Ixchel Hotel. The ONLY complaint I ever had was when they changed the restaurant by the pool to another restaurant. I loved the old one and the new one paled in comparison.... Well....... woooohooooooo They have changed again and this time for the better. Kalak is GREAT! The new servers are EXCELLENT an the total package is so good. GOOD JOB IXCHEL! GREAT MOVE!

Trip was easy - taxi from airport to ferry and then taxi from ferry to hotel - we were taken care of very well. They even let us stop at a bank to exchange some money. Once we got to the hotel, they answered all our questions and anytime I had more they were always readily available with answers. Hotel was very clean and room was wonderful - best in the hotel! #709 We arranged a snorkel trip with the hotel and said we did not want to go to the "typical" places and they took us out in the ocean - it was wonderful! My husband had a great time snorkeling on the beach at the hotel and I enjoyed laying out and getting my drinks and the BEST guacamole at my chair! Thank you Ixchel Beach Hotel and I cannot wait for our return trip!!!

Room Tip: Best room is #709 - ocean front and on top level!

We have been to Isla dozens of times over the years but this is the first time at Ixchel. It hits on every single level. Great location, free beach chairs, beautiful rooms, excellent help, fantastic food at the restaurant, great spa services. The location is especially fantasic - 1/2 block from the main drag. I have stayed everywhere from the cheapest to the most expensive over the years. Ixchel is my new home away from home, hands down.

Room Tip: Rent an owned unit to get the most amenities

Wow. I'm not sure why this hotel isn't rated #1 because we absolutely loved it! The location is perfect: it's situated right on the most amazing beach on Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte) and is just steps from Hidalgo Ave. (lots of great restaurants and shopping). We were just blown away and would definitely stay there again.

Our room was very comfortable and homey, though we kept wishing we'd thought to request a balcony on a higher floor for enjoying the gorgeous sunsets. But watching from the beach or a restaurant was perfectly great too!

We ended up spending hours on that perfect beach, floating on air mattresses out in the huge bathtub of an ocean, taking breaks to drink from a coconut and listen to the strolling musicians. It really was unbelievable and if drinking from a coconut after a kind gentleman hacks it open with a machete isn't your thing, the beach club service will bring you a coke or a cocktail while you kick back. What an amazing way to spend a vacation!

The food on the island is amazing...the subject of conversation with practically everyone we met! The watermelon juice at Manana is not to be believed, the pizza and sparkling limeade at Rolandi's is great, and the grilled garlic catch of the day at Jax Bar and Grill is terrific! Also, breakfasst at Cafe Cito (the crepes with cinnamon apple and yogurt) and Bistro Francais (waffles and yogurt parfaits) were fantastic and highly recommended.

We absolutely loved this vacation and can't wait to go back and when we do we will definitely stay at the Ixchel Beach Hotel again! The place is absolutely perfect.
