“Stay in February”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

Cielito Lindo was our 1st stop on a 6 week tour of Mexico. Arriving from the snow at Gatwick Airport 'Isla' gave us a very welcome recovery from jet lag.

The apartment is comfortable and decorated with good taste and character. Joy was very obliging. I mentioned that we were not used to microwave cooking and she surprised us with a newly installed gas 2-burner gas hob.

The circus was in town and had non-stop loud-speaker vans driving up and down but otherwise the appt was quiet for sleeping.

Just spent five weeks at this Apt. and it made a good home base. Certainly close to the beach and downtown core. Joy was very accommodating and supplied us with a toaster, iron and large fan when we made an enquiry. She is also very knowledgable, informative and interesting to talk with. Plenty of hot water and bottled water and an adequately stocked kitchen for light meal preparation. It was great to walk across the street and buy fresh fish and have it filleted while you wait. This street is probably the busiest on the island with lots of traffic. However, It is a great spot for Carnival and to people watch. Met very nice neighbours and Adrian in the downstairs store was friendly and helpful.

I just spent 2 wonderful, laid-back weeks on Isla Mujeres. What made it so, wasn't only the beauty and intimacy of this island, but the beach studio I rented in Cielito Lindo, literally 10 steps (mine) across the street to the beach. My room was spacious, airy, culturally and tastefully decorated, complete with a kitchenette and bathroom/shower, and free WiFi. I didn't opt for A/C, and found the overhead fan and the cross breeze from the patio doors and window on the other side provided refreshing comfort. But that's me, as I personally don't like A/C. The complex (three floors: ground floor has two businesses, second floor houses two studio apartments, and the third is the owner's home) is located on the main street and is busy and lively during the day due to local traffic, tourist golf carts, and tourists from Cancun coming over for a day's respite from the big city. It does make for good people watching while sitting on the balcony enjoying an ice-cold cerveza. :-) At night, however, the street is quiet; from around 9:30 PM through to sunrise at around 7:30 AM. The owner (and her darling dog) is almost always available and accommodating should you have questions or require information; or, just leave her a note! I loved this place and certainly will return. It's central, only steps from a terrific beach, and within a pleasant short walking distance to restaurants, cafes, and a supermarket. I loved this apartment and it suited me perfectly!

Cielito is the perfect "landing" spot for this wonderul, safe island. It is located across from a great stretch of beach...you can meet fisherman in the AM and buy fresh fish, just be sure to take a bag to put it in. We had coffe each morning, on the balcony, and watched Isla awaken each day. Then I would stroll over to the market, for fresh tortillas, eggs and advocadoes, to make a great breakfast in the cute and well equiped kitchen...once again to enjoy with our balcony view. The unit is in the town, which is full of eateries, and across from lounging chairs....where you can order a beer and snack and hang out all day. If the water gets rough on this side of the island (makes great sleeping), it is a 5 minute walk to the other side, and calm waters. It is the perfect place (decorated in authentic Mexico) and location. Joy, the owner, gave us all kinds of insider tips about great little excursions around town, and around the island. She is so sweet and helpful..... because of this apartment and Joy,....our trip was the best of all of our trips. Cielito is so popular, with people returning each year, contact Joy through her website.......early. There can be cancellations, just contact her and she'll help you out.

Room Tip: Unit 1 has 2 balconies, ocean and garden view.

I am glad that I did not pay heed to the comment posted stating that Ceilto Lindo was a dirty, noisey disappointment. Upon reading this comment it stuck out that this couple has stayed in three hotels in maybe 6 days and was still looking around. Just didn't sound right. And then complaining about Cats and Dogs seemed to be a bit absurd. What would they like the Island of Isla Mujeres to do about their animals. Tape the mouths shut. .I have just returned from a week at Ceilto Lindo. To call it a hotel room does not do it justice. It is an Apartment which is clean and large ,the pillows and bed are very very comfortable , and it is decorated nicely . A home away from home. Spacious with a view of the Ocean... As for the bathroom I have yet come upon a shower door in any of my travels to Mexico. it is all open, thats the way it is. My room had a private side balcony over looking the Garden which I laid on a comfortable lounger taking the Sun and drinking coffee that I had just brewed in the kitchen. And this was all after a great nights sleep with no disturbances . The birds of the Island not traffic is what I woke up to in the morning. It is situated right in Centro across from a beautiful beach and just minutes to walk to North Beach. Restaurents, bars , beaches all at your disposable with no need of a taxi. All I could say is I believe for some reason this couple viciously attacked Ceilto and spent there time for some reason unbeknown going from hotel to hotel. What where they really in search of ?
