Though we visited Isla Mujeres previouisly, this was our first time to stay on the island. We stayed 8 nights at Ixchel in building #1. We rented through Rod on VBRO. We absolutely loved Ixchel. Our condo was large containing a kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom, bathroom, and balcony. We only used the refrigerator and coffee maker in the kitchen. However, you could cook as much as you wish. There were also 2 flat screen televisions in our place. The place is clean, comfortable, and has air conditioning which is needed on the island. The marble sit-down shower is large and the shower head is about 6 1/2 - 7 feet up from the floor. You don't find a great shower in many accommodations these days. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were especially impressed with Mauricio (property manager), Angelica (front desk), and Gabriel (Kalak Restaurant on the beach). Housekeeping does a great job of keeping your place tidy. We met some people who stayed at PA and came over to our beach to see us and were impressed with Ixchel. We have stayed at many places in Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico and Ixchel rates on top of all of them. You are basically right on Playa Norte. I got up at 6:00 am several days for an early swim. Ixchel is near all of the restaurants and shopping in El Centro. Some people have said they didn't like being in building #2 because the sun shines in their windows early in the morning. I read reports about the smallness of the pools. There are 2 pools at Ixhcel. We did not use the pools but went by them several times a day. They were not overly crowded. We prefer to be at the beach when possible. Towels and chairs and umbrellas are easy to acquire. The beach towels are large. You do need to understand that each condo is decorated differently. Rod was great with assisting with our needs. We will definitely stay at Ixchel again when returning to Isla Mujeres. You can send me an email if you have further questions.
