“Oasis on the Island”
Reviewed March 8, 2008

Beautiful grounds, filled with coconut palms, banana trees and
colorful flowers makes Villas Punta Sur an oasis on Isla. Since much of the island is void of lush foliage, VPS is a gem!
The 6 apartments are simple and clean...with functional kitchenettes. I found the rooms comfortable despite the lack of air conditioning.
The moderately small pool is kept sparkling clean by the gardener Juan (try to get him to smile though, now THAT'S a challenge!). And the palapa, surrounded by a mini-jungle of trees is a wonderfully peaceful place to enjoy a meal or your morning coffee.
I enjoyed morning and evening 1/2 mile walks around the southern tip of the island. The rocky shoreline along the Caribbean side is beautiful in the foreground of morning sunrises.
Best of all...is the price! While, in my view, there are much, much more beautiful Caribbean destinations than Isla Mujeres (St John USVI, the BVI and St Lucia are, by far, my favorites), it costs much less than half to stay at Villas Punta Sur. VPS is a bargain seekers paradise!

Fantastic value on Isla Mujeres. We stayed one week and loved it! Villas Punta Sur is for people who want to enjoy their vacation away from civilization and the crowds that now seem to be everywhere in this tourist area. You are on the quiet side of the island - located on the south end of Isla Mujeres - walking distance of "El Garrafon" National Park and the Mayan Ruins, and about 10 minutes by car/ cab from downtown. A cab is about $5.00. You can easily rent a golf cart for the week or just rent a bike. They have a small swimming pool and you also have access to a few small isolated public beaches on the west side of the Island. The apartments have everything you need, you just have to buy groceries! They are comfortable, clean and they have fully furnished one and two bedroom apartments, complete with fully equipped - but basic kitchens, each apartment has a private entrance terrace with chairs to lounge in. They have no phones or TVs, only books and the sounds nature.. it's very peaceful. For music - just bring your ipod! The upstairs apartments have a great ocean view and the downstairs units have a garden view. We stayed in a one bedroom downstairs and it was just fine. They do not have air conditioning, but they do have fans that worked great. The apartments are surrounded by quite and beautiful gardens. They also have a "palapa" (thatched hut) where you can hang out -take a nap in a hammock, cook on the barbecue, or just have a drink and relax! The staff were very helpful and spoke english. I would recommend this place for families and couples looking for great value - who want to get away from it all.
