My husband and I have stayed here twice, and I can't believe we haven't reviewed Elements yet. We've thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits, and when we return we will certainly go back. In fact, during our last visit we split our stay to experience staying on the water and booked 2 nights at some other hotel on the rocky... More

This is a wonderful little place. Very clean, nice, private rooms. I had zero complaints and I will be returning for sure. The owner Madjid is wonderful and very helpful. The restaurant that is part of the hotel is a great place for breakfast before you start you day, all the staff is extremely friendly.

So happy I came across this place when searching for accommodation online. Elements was a gorgeous little place with only 3 rooms, which was super quiet, and an amazing organic cafe downstairs. Nayra was running the place while the owner was away. She was a super friendly lady and very welcoming. Great coffee, and delicious food on their menu. Their... More

Our 5th trip to Isla Mujeres and first time at Elements of The Island. What a great place! Perfect location-close to shops, cafes, beach, downtown activity, yet inside the courtyard it is tranquil and relaxing. Bed and linens were really nice. Slept very well! The cafe food is wonderful- plan to eat there next time even we can't stay at... More

Elements is nicely nestled in the north end of the island. Super cozy. We stayed on the second floor, and the room was filled with wonderful natural light. There's a board on the second floor that contains notes from past travelers of days gone by but not forgotten. A nice touch. The cafe serves a delicious breakfast with homemade bread.... More

Felt so relaxed in this cute cafe. We ordered the fruit plate, oatmeal with fresh fruit, yogurt, and cream, BLT with an egg, and freshly squeezed orange juice. Everything was delicious. The restroom was spacious and immaculate. We are definitely going back!

We had a great room with the most fantastic sheets we've ever slept in. Beautiful decorated hotel with a personal and modern style, yet familiar. Great service, nice location (close to the beach and the harbour - we walked from the boat). Friendly service from Madjid and his staff! Can really recommend this hotel!

I loved breakfasting at Elements for many years. When the charismatic original owners, Lisa and Cesar moved on, I avoided the restaurant, assuming I'd be disappointed. Finally last month, my wife and I talked to the delightful new Parisian-Algerian owner, returned another day for breakfast, and were very happy. Majid bakes the same fabulous bread, accompanied by 2 fresh jams:... More

Our room was more of a small studio apartment than a hotel room with its fridge and microwave oven. It was bright and spacious and the TV had lots of film channels. Much appreciated when we got sick! The fridge made an annoying noise when it started up that took some time getting used to. The (middle) room has an... More

We spent a week here between Christmas and New Year's and could not have been happier with our choice. Two blocks to the beach, and one block to the shopping, restaurants and bars of Hidalgo. Maghid, the owner, was present every morning, when we had delicious breakfasts. Homemade breads and jam. Swiss influence with cheeses. Our room on the first... More
