Description: Fenix is a modern,oceanfront lounge located on the sparkling waters of North Beach on Isla Mujeres. Our Beach was recently rated as #1 in Mexico by Tripadvisor. We are only a short ferry ride from Cancun,so come and enjoy a laid back Caribbean atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else!Fenix features a casual beach bar serving creative handcrafted drinks and a colorful Tapas and Lunch Menu. Take out one of our StandUpPaddleBoards(SUP) to tour the beach or take it easy and enjoy our relaxing beach beds and umbrellas with an unparalleled view of Mexico’s Caribbean Sea. When the sun goes down Fenix transforms into a romantic open-air dining room surrounded by softly lit pools.

It is a real shame this gem of a place comes under the 'restaurants' category as it is - in my view - the best beach club on the island and the perfect place to hang out from afternoon to late drinks. I really don't know why it doesn't come up on trip advisor under best bar recommendations (Tiny's, Kokonuts etc came up instead and also do not know why!!!). I spent quite a time wondering where the best place to be on this island was as quite disappointed by the Hildago's street's bars - and here it was! Unfortunately, only discovered it on our last day (after a recommendation from Bahia Tartuga's attentive staff) and went there in early afternoon but only ended up leaving at 9pm! It is located at the very end of Playa Norte at the most beautiful part of the beach. The bar staff very friendly and attentive (some of the most attentive ones we met at the island), the margaritas are very good and daquiries are made with fresh fruit (rather than the condensed sugary type of juices used elsewhere). The scene is amazing; beach beds where you can view the beautiful turquoise sea, a young and international crowd and live salsa. Once sun is down the place transforms into this atmospheric romantic beach side hut. We didn't try the food, wished we had more time to return for another visit. Definitely recommend.

The Fenix has it all! As the Founder & Organizer of the 'We Move Forward' International Women's Day conference, held annually on Isla Mujeres, I couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of the service & food provided at The Fenix Lounge. The Manager, Julie, worked alongside my team to provide a wonderful Happy Hour with special drinks & tapas that our 80+ guests rated as Excellent. The Fenix quickly became the favourite hang-out spot after the conference ended - the music, food and staff are all exceptionally great! I highly recommend the Fenix Lounge to anyone planning a special event on Isla!

Everyone expects a good marg in MX, but how many people can say they enjoyed the Tamarind Marg, star fruit Marg & Spicy Mango Daiquiri! Good stuff and great atmosphere at Playa Norte....well worth the jaunt

We visited this wonderful gem of a restaurant/lounge on a very windy day. The ginger margaritas are fantastic! (As are the regular ones). We liked the restaurant so much that we made a second visit to Isla Mujeres JUST to have dinner. As a celiac they did a fantastic job with my meal and no issues!!!!! Jackie our server was bubbly and fun and the bartenders Lori and Eric made great drinks. Would highly recommend and next time we vacation in Cancun we will again make the trek to this great place!

I only had a salad and grilled octopus.. but would go back if I could and try more. Both the Asian salad and the grilled pulpo were fresh and sooo tasty. I had grilled octopus several places on the island but this was the most tender, flavorful version.
