We just returned from ten fantastic days on Isla Mujeres staying at Ixchel Phase 1. The accommodations were booked thru www.vrbo.com which I would highly recommend exploring. Everything went as planned.
The hotel staff was extrememly helpful and pleasant. The beach is wonderful. Our suite was extremely comfortable. Great water pressure in the shower although the water is EXTREMELY hot. We loved having the kitchen in the unit for breakfast and simple snacks. The Comuno staff were great and we enjoyed our food and drinks as we sat on the beach.
The location is great. Walking distance to and from the ferry, restaurants and shopping. The super market is five blocks away. We rented a golf cart twice to explore the island and we took a trip to Isla Contoy. Contoy is beautiful but make sure the trip out there will have calm water. Our one hour plus boat ride was not a pleasure. Also find out the tide. When we were there it was low tide so we were snorkeling in extremely shallow waters.
We were pleased with our decision to stay at Ixchel Beach and can't wait to go back next year.
