“Cozy and colorful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Although I've been to various places in Mexico many times and have stayed at a variety of accommodations, I am happy to rate Casa Zuzy very highly for the price. Besides being clean, comfortable, new, spacious, and fully equipped with amenities, these apartments are cheerily decorated with colorful paint, furnishings, and artisan knicknacks. The bathrooms are spacious and modern, and each room has its own balcony. In addition, guests have access to a lovely rooftop with a great view of the city and the beach. Casa Zuzy is in a colonia, or residential neighborhood, a bit away from the Centro, offering a less touristy, more authentic experience of Isla. That said, it is 10 minutes' walk from Paya Lancheros, a lovely, considerably less crowded beach, with some great restaurants on it. One can also take the bus to the Centro, taking 15 minutes and costing 5 pesos, or a taxi for about 20 pesos.

My stay this time was unfortunately very short, but I can say without hesitation that Casa Zuzy is a place where one can happily stay any amount of time. Its simple, homey comfort, great price, and friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable owners, make one feel "como en su casa" (just like at home).

Casa Zuzy is a great choice to stay at Isla Mujeres!

Room Tip: Both rooms are equally good! One is a little larger than the other

On each of my prior visits to Isla Mujeres, I'd typically selected accommodations in el Centro, but this year, I wanted to try something different. I'm so glad to have found Casa Zuzy. Both guest apartments at Casa Zuzy offer clean, comfortable, modern, and spacious accommodations with everything most travelers would want (air conditioning, balcony, large refrigerator, microwave, stovetop, full bath, wifi, etc.). It's a block or so from the public market, and just a bit further from the Xpress Super, so getting my own provisions couldn't have been easier. Casa Zuzy guests also have full privileges to the rooftop deck, where there's chairs, a hammock, and dipping pool. Playa Lancharos, one of the closest beaches is perhaps a ten minute walk, and Captain Dulche's is just a bit further.

The value at Casa Zuzy is exceptional. I loved my bright, cheerful room, the charming and authentic neighborhood surroundings, and most of all, the very reasonable price. While the property is a ways from el Centro and Playa Norte, it costs a mere five pesos to take the bus there; the bus makes a full loop about every half hour and goes right by Casa Zuzy. Some of the island's best restaurants, ones that el Centro Tourists need to catch a cab to, are less than a five minute walk from Casa Zuzy. There are some real hidden gems on the island, and I was able to discover more of them because of where I stayed. I will definately consider returning to Casa Zuzy on my next visit to Isla Mujeres. It was real gem.

Room Tip: Us ethe bus to get to many of the places you'd like to get to on the island. It's only 5 pe...

Casa Zuzy is a terrific place to stay if you are visiting Isla Mujeres. Located in the residential neighborhood of La Gloria the apartments are new, clean and within walking distance of many restaurants, stores and local businesses.

Both of the second floor units have large sliding glass doors that opens up to private decks. You can also take the stairs to the roof and see the entire neighborhood, the Caribbean and even the Cancun skyline in the distance. There are many beautiful plants on the roof and a hammock and pool to relax in.

The kitchenette in the apartment I stayed in included a full sized refrigerator, gas cooktop, microwave, a nice sized sink and spacious counter top to prepare meals. The bathroom includes a nice sized walk in shower and the bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Cable television and wireless internet are available.

The property owners, Will and Susan, are very accommodating and friendly. Their hospitality and knowledge of the island will ensure your stay is a memorable one. I would highly recommended this property to anyone visiting the island who would like to stay outside of the "touristy" areas and experience what real life on the island is like.

Room Tip: Either of the apartments would be an excellent choice.
