Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 February 2012

We just visited Isla Mujeres for the first time and were very impressed with the Ixchel Beach Hotel. The location is perfect, the price is great, but we were most impressed with the excellent service we received from hotel staff. Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. One minor disappointment was that only double beds were available in the standard rooms and also the beds were not terribly comfortable. On the whole, this hotel is an excellent value and we would definitely consider staying there again. It is also very conveniently located to all the shops and restaurants.

Ixchel Beach Hotel was a great choice - we loved it from the moment we walked into our rooms. First, the location was excellent - it was at the end of the restaurant street, so it was an easy stroll in the evenings to find a restaurant for dinner. The views from the hotel are fantastic - you can see the highrise buildings of Cancun in the distance and nothing beats champagne sunsets on the beach or in the privacy of your balcony. The rooms are spacious and provide all necessary basics - good beds, aircon, proper shower, safe, free wifi and a kitchenette with drinking water and fridge. We had two adjacent rooms so it was basically one huge suite which was very enjoyable. The hotel beach is right there and it was clean, with lots of services available. Please note that the beach is serviced by a number of waiters, and NOT all of them work for the hotel, so if you want to charge your drinks to your hotel bill make sure you order them from the guy wearing the hotel shirt.

My husband and I have stayed at Ixchel about six times. I cannot say enough about the hotel, the employees, beach and accommodations.

We usually rent the ground floor unit closest to the beach, owned by Cindy and Dean. We love the way they have updated their condo with granite countertops, bowl sinks in the bathrooms and just the overall decor. A real class act.

Staying on the ground is great especially if you have children. That way they are just steps away from the pool and beach. We are able to come and go as we please with no worries. The little cafe/bar is perfect if you want to grab a cerveza or a light snack. The beach is so gorgeous, so some times it's hard to leave to search out food. Why leave when the friendly wait staff will come right to your beach chair and take all your food and drink orders? It's really nice and convenient.

Our most recent stay was about 3 weeks ago and our friends stayed in the floor unit and we rented one of the penthouse units. Although the view is amazing and the rooftop hot tub and amenities are very nice, we found going up and down the elevator and steps multiple times a day got old. We got our exercise in, or at least I did, because I took the stairs almost every time.

The staff at the front desk are always willing to go above and beyond to help. They are sweet, sweet people and we are blessed to call them our friends. Although the spa is very tiny, it packs a mighty punch! Love them! You have the option of having a massage on the beach, with it's very cool little palapa and flowing fabric curtains or inside their small massage therapy room. I've had three massages from two different people and they are amazing! Really talented people with something special about them. You feel their energy and they are good people, too. I joked with my friends that I needed a cigarette after one of the massages! hahaa

We have stayed at several hotels on the island and we have found that Ixchel is the best accommodations, service and most definitely the best stretch of beach is on the North Beach, Playa Norte. Although the tides and weather can ultimately change the size and shape of the beach, it always rejuvenates and comes back to a wonderful stretch of white, ashtray sand.

If you have never been to Isla Mujeres before, do yourself a favor and make your reservations today for Ixchel - you'll be glad you did!

Room Tip: Go to VRBO and look for Cindy and Dean's unit. Great to rent from. Americans who have a lot of...

We stayed for one week in mid-January. Location is convenient for restaurants and shopping. Beach is wonderful! Room was spacious and clean, and any minor maintenance issues were immediately corrected when reported. Pools are nice, too, and very quiet. Staff was responsive to all our needs and provided good suggestions for dining and activities. Beds are extremely firm, as they are mattresses placed on top of concrete pedestals (exactly like we've found in most other places we've been in Mexico). Booked this trip for a quick getaway with family... next time we'll stay longer and get a larger room. We loved the Ixchel Beach Hotel.
