We just returned from Isla Mujeres on Tuesday, and cannot say enough good things about Casa Sirena.
A friend of ours planned a destination wedding on Isla Mujeres and invited a large group of family and friends to attend. Around 40 of us were able to go, so the scramble began to find a place to stay. After looking at several other options on the Island, from all inclusive to guest houses, nothing jumped out at us as being authentic and friendly, which were attributes we were looking for. Another friend who had recently returned from Isla Mujeres told us about Casa Sirena and what a wonderful time she had there. After looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor, we were convinced it was the right place for us.
The bride and groom went on a preliminary wedding planning trip in November and stopped by the Sirena to check it out. As we had nearly every room booked out for the wedding party, Steve Broin, the owner, was kind enough to offer to hold the rehearsal dinner for the entire wedding party on his fabulous rooftop patio. What a wonderful party we had, and Steve and his friends and staff are to thank. The food was out of this world, the service was impeccable and the decoration very charming.
Our stay at the Sirena gave our trip many of the warm memories we brought home with us. The pictures of the rooms on the website do not do them justice. The tile floors are stunning, the woodwork is beautifully preserved and the antiques and art are obviously lovingly cared for.
Complimentary breakfast is a choice between an authentic 5 Star Mexican feast or a traditional American breakfast of eggs and bacon, but although I am not the most adventurous eater, I highly recommend the authentic breakfast. The chef is very talented in merging flavors and textures you would not normally consider into a tasty and satisfying feast. Breakfast is served in a beautiful setting, on the main floor patio.
Happy Hour is the perfect start to a fun evening out on Isla, and Steve is very generous with both food and drink. Happy Hour may be served on the rooftop patio or the main floor patio, depending on weather, but nothing beats sipping a delicious margarita on the roof while watching the spectacular Isla sunset over the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea!
The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job and kept the place sparkling the whole time we were there. We have no idea how they kept up with all of the sand we kept dragging into the place, but we never saw a speck of dirt anywhere. The house felt so safe and comfortable that we accidentally forgot to lock our door one of the nights we were there.
If you are looking for something other than a run-of-the-mill hotel stay, and would like to enhance your vacation by staying in a beautiful and reasonably priced location filled with authentic Mexican warmth and hospitality, then Casa Sirena is the place for you!
