My wife and I wanted to escape the snow and ice that hit the mid west. I wanted a beach vacation and I wanted to be on the ocean / beach and have a interesting place to walk around. Isla Mujeres fit the bill exactly!
We got to our room and it was right on the ocean with a great view.
Well guess what ?........ this huge window only opens about 6"
and to top that is has some opaque glass like in a shower - so when I look out at the ocean it looks like I am having some hazy dream instead of hearing the crashing waves and breathing the fresh air.
Well it took me all of about 10 minutes to get the little strap off the held the window closed. Judging by the approx 8 little holes where the strap used to be bolted into, I would have to say that I am not the first to find this situation frustrating.
The desk did call up once and they wanted to send someone up to close the window for "security purposes" but I would have blockaded the door first!
Once that was out of the way we liked the room (hard beds though) and we loved the location.
The restaurant and the whole place was quiet.
I think the villas are the only safe way to go here but for value the tower rooms that face the ocean (wedding chapel side) are a good bargain - IF IF IF you can open the window.
Bottom Line - I would give this hotel NEGATIVE 5 stars with the jail window
and 4 stars with the window libre
