We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Ixchel. The location is great, right a the sea and away from the tourist crowds in the center. (At the same time, the center is just a 20 minute stroll away if you want to go there). The pool and porch area as well as the excellent rooftop restaurant have an amazing view of the sea.

The restaurant serves a different menu depending on the time of day and is generally good but especially recommendable for dinner, we had excellent pasta and Filet Mignon there for a very reasonable price. Their cocktails are huge and really good. Another excellent place to eat nearby is the Mango Cafe, just up the road towards the South, max. 10 minute walk. (Their Coconut French Toast and the Jamaican BBQ are amazing!)

Our room "Love" was small but really pretty. The bed hangs on thick ropes which gives you the impression to sleep on a really big, comfortable hammock. Combine this with the sound of crashing waves at night... just wonderful. It also has a really big tub that easily fits two people. However, be aware that the room is tiny, there is very little closet space and there is only a curtain between the bed and the toilet. So you either have to be really comfortable around the person you are travelling with or one of you has to sit outside every now and then and watch the sea for a while. :-) Other than that, there is really nothing bad to say about this place. Clean room, towels and sheets, friendly staff that respects your privacy, great food, great location... we loved it.

Room Tip: "Love" is tiny but the bed hanging on ropes is sooooo comfortable to sleep in. Like a giant hammock. The huge tub is also really nice.

This was our first stay here and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The staff were all friendly and the hotel is well-managed and clean. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a suite (Grace I) which is a fully equiped and spacious one bedroom apartment with an enormous hotub! Although it doesn't have a sandy beach you can swim in the sea at the hotel or the town beaches (and centre) are a short walk or golf cart ride away.

Also, the restaurant is superb - we treated ourselves to the Mar Y Tierra (surf and turf) on our first night and it was so good we had it again before leaving a few nights later.

Will definitely return.

Me and my bf found this place by driving around isla mujeres in a small golf car, we were staying at a 5 star resort in cancun when we stopped by curiosity for food at DA LUISA restaurant right above CASA IXCHEL, we were so impressed by the restaurant, the food and the service that we decided to take a look at the hotel, we thought that with such great food was worth the look, and OMG! they had such fantastic rooms and suites that we couldnt avoid take a chance and be adventurous and stay one night to try it, dont forget we had a 5 star room awaiting for us in cancun lol... we had such a great time, so relaxing so calm so beautiful that next morning after a delicious breakfast we head to out hotel in cancun just to grab some clothes and came right back to casa ixchel lol we stayed there for what was left of our stay in cancun, we pretty much abandoned the 5 star resort to go enjoy casa ixchel lol now in november we have a full week reserved at casa ixchel. forget about the 5 stars they really cannot match up this place, beautiful rooms, suites, amazing service, amazing people running this place, the food is by far the best i have had in my life, and the sunsets in this side of the island are just heavenly...is such an agony lo leave, im counting the days till im back! i highly recommend this place for all those looking for relaxation, romantic atmosfere and privacy...dont forget the food and nice drinks! enjoy!

Room Tip: try the abundance suite.

I love this place - this was my second stay here. It's like a little oasis away from it all. The whole vibe of the place is calming - you have no choice but to chill out. There are no TV's, no radio's, no screaming children, just the sound of the ocean. Having wi-fi was good, though, for the occasional email check. We also found out that on this side of the island there's always a nice breeze -which means no bugs and not as boiling hot, especially in August! On the other side, where the beaches are, it's a different story. Even though that means that there's no real beach by the hotel, I prefered it - the beaches are a quick golf cart ride away anyway. The place also has an awesome restaruant on the rooftop and they'll bring you cocktails by the pool!

After much research and deliberation in planning for our wedding, we discovered and decided upon Casa Ixchel. It was exactly what we had in mind for our ceremony and honeymoon...small, quiet and beautiful. All of our expectations were met, and we were additionally impressed by the quality of service provided day after day at the hotel and restaurant Da Luisa. We stayed at Casa Ixchel a total of 8 nights and by the end felt like we had acquired a new family. The wedding was wonderful; it would not have been the same had it not been for Nadia (the hotel manager), Giorgio (the chef), Moy, Juvencio, David, Roger and Luis (restaurant staff). We awoke every day to the sound of the ocean, the sun rising, and delicious coffee and fruit! What more can you ask for? We are anxiously awaiting our next visit!

Room Tip: Splurge for the suites or apartment...they are worth the money!
