We have been to Isla many times in the past but not for the last 10 years. We always stayed at Na Balam and loved the location. I was looking for a place to stay and came across Casa Sirena a top rated B&B. and it just so happens that they own a rental condo in Ixchel. Beach Hotel. we shared 2 bedroom 2bath condo with another couple and could not have been happier. Since I am a coffee snob I was able to make my own coffee every morning and sit out on the ocean front balcony and watch the colors of the water change as the sun rose. We were also able to enjoy a post dinner drink before bed. Another couple that we went with rented a standard room but there was enough room on the balcony for all of us. We spent 9 wonderful days there.
The rooms were immaculate as were the public spaces, the staff was professional yet friendly. I must name our housekeeper Noelle as wonderful, every morning I washed out the coffee pot and yet I know that every day she rewashed it. Maurisius the concierge was great he must be asked the same things 50 times a day but always answered with a smile and a personal observation. The 2 ladies at the front desk ( can't remember their names ) were professional and patient. And Giovanni the manager of the restaurant was the best, always a smile or joke. The small open air restaurant had a nice menu and good food. One night they cooked the fish my husband a friends caught and Giovanni stayed to serve us.
All in all it was a wonderful place to stay and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
