Just got back from 2 weeks at Nautibeach, this was our 3rd time down and will not be the last. We had to write a quick review to to set the record straight for anyone wanting to visit Isla Mujeres for the first time.
Nautibeach is not a brand new ultra modern hotel for jet setters, it is a collection of privately owned condos that are rented out and managed by a friendly and professional staff. For those traveling with a family group (especially with smaller kids) this is the best accommodation on the island. Situated at the point of Playa Norte with its back to the downtown area it is probably the best location on Isla. You have access to two beach fronts on the island only steps away and Hidalgo street and the nightlife only a couple of blocks behind you. the resort itself has impeccably managed grounds and gardens, there are people constantly watering, sweeping, trimming gardens and attending to the building, the team takes great pride in their work and it shows.
The rooms are all decorated according to the tastes of the individual condo owners, we have stayed in modern decor, rustic decor and island decor all in the same resort, some may appeal to you some may not, but the staff has changed our (and other folks we have met) condo in the past to better suit our needs, once even upgrading us to a penthouse corner unit with the wrap around balcony. the unifying factor is that the rooms are clean well equipped and spacious with all the amenities needed to be a vacation home away from home. there are full size fridges you can stock with drinks and food from the local supermarket, stoves, toasters even blenders to make margaritas with, all of this helping to keep the budget down and not forcing you to live off restaurant food and drinks for the whole trip, for us this was a big plus.
The Condo has a great pool situated right on the beach front and the Sunset Grill Restaurant is right there too offering breakfast lunch and dinner service and a happy hour every day. you can open an account with the restaurant so you don't need to carry a wallet around in your swimsuit every day and they will do room service to your condo if you desire.
The front desk staff can arrange anything you need, golf carts, Mayan tours, snorkeling, fishing, baby sitting, grocery delivery, baggage porters, basically anything you need on the island, they can get you and they are pretty easy to get along with, if not a bit busy (understandably) at times.
all in all if you are looking for a tropical family related vacation in a clean and homey location this is the place, if you want tuxedo-ed waiters and a jet set experience, this is not soo much the place.
Kudos to: Javier at the front gate, Jose at the beach and Cruz at sunset grill, these are the guys to know!
For water activities see Juan Campos on the Proud Indio, he has all paddle and sail sports available for rental and instruction and does cruises and snorkeling tours from his 36' sailboat.
