I visited Villa Ixchel for a business meeting. I come from a family who runs a small hotel and have a keen eye to the ins and outs of the business. Roswitha made our stay absolutely fantastic. She is very personable - inviting me and my fiancee out to carnival with her. The rooms are exceptionally clean and reasonably priced.... More

Rosie was not only fun to be around, she was extremely gracious and accommodating. The apartment was very nice and clean. Having free wi-fi in the room was fantastic. There is a locked front gate, but the area always seemed very safe to me. One reviewer mentioned dogs. There is only one dog and never a problem. Not once did... More

Roswitha (Rosie) set us up for a night on short notice for our Snorkle Tour - the accomdations were exactly what we needed - clean bead and bathroom. dining area - nice, peaceful, neighborhood off the beaten path, landscaped garden and within walking distance(30 mins) or cheap taxi (30 pesos) to the downtown / ferry locations. We'll visit again -... More

My room at Villas Ixchel exceeded my expectations. I plan on returning. This was my third experience with Roswitha, each has been excellent. I feel sorry for those that visit Cozumel and stay at a beachfront hotel or just see the water front from a cruise ship. The plaza is much more interesting when you approach it from the land....

Its a nice place once you are behind the door, in case you are not hysteric about dogs. Still the small double room on the ground floor is sticky and air doesnt run through. the host is friendly, but a bit moody. she would not call me a cab, but force me to do it with my german mobile, which...

I just love this place.My little slice of heaven in Cozumel. Villas Ixchel is away from the hustle of downtown in the quite neighborhood of Colonial Independencia across the street from an elementary school. Rosie the owner, is just a wealth of information on the island and is always willing to share her knowledge and also is a hoot to... More

My family traveled with another family to Mexico for Thanksgiving 2006. We wanted to snorkel and have heard that Cozumel is the place to go. Our web search turned up Roswitha and her personalized snorkeling tour. What a find! Making the arrangements was easy. Everything was done via email before we even left the states. We had 10 in our... More

This was the best snorkeling adventure we've ever been on. Rosie is so full of information and helps eveyone out. This is not your typical snorkeling boat. It is an intimate tour with few people. Rosie is so knowledgeable and so sweet. The snacks were awesome! We will definitely come back again!

Villas Ixchel is a great place to stay in San Miguel. It's a good walk from the town centre but we enjoyed getting away from the crowds and there are so many different routes to take that we always found our walks interesting. We had an upstairs studio apartment and it was bright, super clean, airy and cool for sleeping,... More
