“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We loved our top-floor room, lots of light, great price, kitchenette, daily cleaning, lovely. Great location and we ADORE the yoga teacher Meg, she is awesome, we booked here partly for that reason and went to every class of hers we could.

Room Tip: The view into the garden is nicer I guess from the 1st or 2nd floors, but we liked the light on the...

Traveled solo to Isla, This was the perfect place. Location is excellent! Close to everything, yet tucked away so that it's secure and private. Just steps to the best beaches of Isla, fresh seafood, stores and the breakfast in their restaurant was an added bonus. Madjid and staff were polite and very helpful. The rooms were spotless and felt like your own little studio apartment. I stayed 8 days of pure bliss.
Thank you Elements!

This place is a "must see" on the island. They serve the best organic meals and its really tasteful. They have a short menulist which is perfect. Go for the omelet and fresh squized juices. Opening hour from 7.30 to 13.00 every Day except wednesday.

This place is a hidden gem in so many ways. The location is very central; only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants. The rooms are tucked away from the street and overlook a lush, green, common-area oasis. There are only 3 rooms here, and the cafe downstairs serves wonderful breakfasts with homemade bread and jams (plus hearty egg dishes, incredible fresh fruit plates, etc.) Every morning we woke to the aroma of freshly-brewed coffee - and it was delicious. The rooms have a small kitchenette, and bottled water is provided. Nothing fancy, but clean and oh so convenient (plus free wifi, etc.). We also cannot say enough good things about Madjid and Jean (the owners); they went SO far above & beyond in every respect and even helped us with a personal matter that arose while we were staying there (having nothing to do with them). It was great chatting with Madjid every morning in the cafe when he would check to make sure our food was good, and everything was going well. Thank you both for being such caring, kind individuals and making this the perfect place to stay while on Isla Mujeres!

I've tried a few places on the island and this one ranks high in my favorites. My must-haves are clean (this one was spotless), comfortable and with wifi so I can do my remote work. I like a place that feels good to go back to. This one ticked all the boxes.
Pros:
- centrally located, almost at the end of Juarez. You can be at the beach in less than 5 minutes, on Hidalgo in less than 1. The rooms face Juarez but are set back enough to not be bothered by street noise.
- Modern quiet AC, small kitchenette, cable service
- 10% rebate at their café where they serve a quality breakfast with homemade breads and jams.
- Rebate on yoga classes in the upstairs palapa
- Very welcoming management
- Rooms have dehumidifier so no musty smell there. The rooms actually have that great mexican laundry smell....

Cons:
- Low water pressure in the shower (though I still managed with my thick long hair).
- Balconies are too narrow to be a good hang out spot but the common palapa is nice.

Thanks for the great stay. I'll be back, no doubt!

Loved the atmosphere, owners, location and food. Certainly not average in any way. Homemade breads, jams and fresh squeezed orange juice. Brie quesadillas, a variety of omelettes, yogurt and fresh fruit. Will go back for lunch on another day.

We had a really delicious fresh breakfast from Elements. Their bagels are fresh and the juice was very tastey. They have a variety of different options and the price is very reasonable. It is located on Juarez which is a nice quiet street and the restaurant is very peaceful. I can only imagine that the hotel in side would be very relaxing as well. We will be back next year.
