On our second visit to Isla Mujeres we were lucky enough to be directed to the Villa Kiin by Vicki Daines with Lost Oasis.
The Villa was a very clean, quiet beachfront group of bungalows and rooms located in a quiet area of narrow beach. The bay in front of the Villa looks out directly at the Avalon 300 or 400 yards away. I did not find looking at the Avalon offensive and actually it's location was helpful in blocking any wind.
The continental breakfast was off site and not really worth the effort with so many better options available close by.
This part of the bay would be an easy area for young children to swim in as the surf is minimal and the water fairly shallow for several yards out from shore.
I had read a concern about room security but found no indication of any problems of this sort at all. the front desk and cleaning staff were friendly as well as helpful.
Shower pressure was what you come to expect in smaller Mexican hotels but still adequate with plenty of hot water. The room was a bit dark, AC was good, TV reception poor with a good mini fridge and in room safe.
I will definitely stay at the Villa Kiin again on our next visit.
