We made wonderful memories during our two week stay at Mar Y Cielo. The condo is spacious and well equipped. It was meticulous upon our arrival, and then cleaned again at the end of our first week. The view from the 5th floor is truly spectacular. You can count on it looking exactly like the picture - gorgeous!! The sunset was beautiful each and every night. We got our exercise walking to Punta Sur to see the sunrise, running up the stairs to the condo several times a day, and snorkeling close by. There's no water access right in front of the condo, but Garrafon de Castille is a stone's throw away, and only costs 70 pesos ($3.50 US) for a full day of swimming / snorkeling at the beach there. The bigger Garrafon Reef Park is a short walk up toward Punta Sur, and although more expensive, it offers a lovely pool, drinks and buffet, zip-line, trampoline, etc. making for tons of fun. Also nearby is "The Joint" (fun reggae restaurant) and Casa de los Suenos, where there are fire dancers every Friday and Saturday night (no cover charge). The show was excellent and the walk back to the condo lovely under a full moon. There's a taxi stand close by in front of Garrafon Reef Park, and taxis are super cheap on the island, so if you want to go to Playa Norte, you can easily get there for only 100 pesos ($5 US). Our two weeks was dreamy; we're huge fans of Isla Mujeres and Mar Y Cielo. Highly recommend!
This condo was a great place to stay and we all considered it a good value. It was clean and nice linens and towels were provided as well as a fairly well equipped kitchen.. The view was perfect and we enjoyed it morning noon and night. The reasons I couldn't give a higher rating were as follows: the grounds and building itself are in need of some TLC, the stairway was not very clean and several sections of railing were broken and, it is quite a hike up 5 floors with no elevator, not for the faint of heart! Had I realized the climb, it might have been a deal breaker. Although I would recommend this place, I would caution anyone not in good physical condition.

My husband and I had a last minute change to a vacation we had scheduled on the Mayan Riviera. I only had 3 days to book a totally different trip. We decided on Isla Mujeres and I found Mar y Cielo. The owner Vicki was a dream to work with and she got us all set up in her condo and with a gulf cart. Unfortunately my husband ended up with a flair up of an existing health and we had to leave earlier than planned. But once again Vicki was great and helped with those changes as well. Her condo is on the southern tip with breathtaking views of the ocean. The colors are amazing and you can take it all in from her comfy balcony or larger rooftop area with loungers and umbrella. The condo is very spacious and beautiful inside. It's an older building so the outside had seen some wear due to oceanfront location. But don't let that be z concern because inside is great with good A/C, very impressive water pressure and very fluffy bath towels. The unit was very clean as well. A great find on the Island and a very good value!!
Mar y Cielo is a newly renovated top floor penthouse condo in the quiet Garrafon neighborhood of Isla. We really enjoyed our time near Punta Sur and this condo quickly became a great home base for our 3 weeks of exploring Isla Mujeres. Everything was in new condition and we had everything we needed. The full kitchen was nice for preparing breakfasts on the deck. The bedrooms were comfortable. Highlights included spectacular sunsets and night time star shows from the deck. We also used the beach club across from the condo. We met some friendly neighbors and even attended a condo potluck dinner one night. Vicki went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed.
We stayed in this Condo during our stay on Isla Mujeres. The location is superb- on the best snorkeling beach on the island! The views from the balcony and private rooftop sunning terrace are spectacular!
The condo itself is nicely decorated with beautiful art and modern furnishings and has everything you need to prepare meals and relax. She even has a roku with Netflix!!!!
Vicki was easy to get ahold of for questions and I would highly recommend her property. Thanks for a wonderful week in a beautiful location!
