We had no expectations prior to our 7 day stay at this hotel and within hours of arriving we already decided that we would definitely be coming back to Ixchel Beach Hotel on our next visit to Isla Mujeres. You can't beat its location and accessibility to everything from the beach to amazing restaurants. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. We had arrived almost 4 hours before check-in and were pleasantly surprised to learn that our room was ready. Mauricio (responsible in setting up tours) was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions from where's the best place to snorkel to where can we rent bicycles. The cleaning staff were excellent and our room was cleaned daily (the floors were wash everyday especially since we tracked in so much salt and sand). We had booked a basic standard room on the west tower on the 5th floor. We did not expect the room to also include a mini fridge, microwave, dishes with cutlery, and a 10 gallon water dispenser (this was a big bonus for us!). Although we did not have a balcony (which we will opt for next time), the view from the open air hallway in front of our hotel room was spectacular. This was like our giant balcony and the sunset views over the ocean were one of the highlights each evening before we went for dinner. We specifically wanted a quiet and restful stay and this hotel did not disappoint. Despite being located on Hidalgo Avenue (the main tourist drag) the hotel is at the very north end of the street down a very quiet corridor. There were many other hotels on Hildalgo Avenue right in the heart of the action and located upstairs from noisy bars. Ixchel was definitely not like these hotels.
