What an incredible place to meet with family and friends to enjoy refreshments and conversation at your own home! The care taken to give this house special touches is evident. Island-themed tile and stone handiwork is seen throughout on the floors of the palapa and in and around the house. Carved rails adorning the exterior staircases and the interior stairs and carved handrails are fashioned of salam, a hardwood noted for its durability and dark burnished beauty. Glass blocks are strategically placed in walls to admit light, and in the master suite to showcase a collection of seashells. Local art is displayed on the walls and throughout the house. The house was designed for maximum versatility. The ground-level ocean-front two bedroom unit has a large living room opening onto the pool deck and ocean beyond . A fully equipped kitchen and dining room are adjacent. The beautiful staircase leads up to the second floor Master Suite, which can be rented separately by locking the door at the top of the staircase and entering through a private exterior entry, or used as the master bedroom of a three bedroom house. The Master Suite has a king bed, a jacuzzi tub with ocean view, a kitchenette area, with sink, fridge and coffeemaker, and has lock-off doors to maintain privacy. There is also a separate luxury studio, with kitchen, bathroom with tub/shower, queen bed, and couch. For a large family or a group, this can be a private and complete fourth bedroom, or can be rented separately. There is also a new fifth bedroom, the Tortuga Suite, with private entrance on the second level. The entire place is attractively and comfortably furnished to make your stay even more enjoyable. El Castillo Maya sits side-by-side with El Castillo Maya 2, formerly Casa Azul del Caribe, another house with three bedrooms, plus another sleeping space off of the master bedroom for kids, or two adults if needed. They share a lovely patio and swimming pool with swim up bar. They can be combined to sleep 16-20 people, making this a perfect place to host a family reunion or a wedding. The entire complex is nicely landscaped and has plenty of off-street parking for golf-carts and other vehicles. What a great place to enjoy your island vacation! This property is only rented as a 4 or 5 bedroom house, by the week, and Saturday to Saturday, from Dec 1-Apr 1. From Dec 20-Jan 3 is can only be rented as a five bedroom house. Rates listed are for the five bedroom house. Please ask for rates for the five bedroom house.

We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, which means we have both adult children and adult grandchildren. Everyone needed some privacy. This house provided it, but with plenty of roomy and pleasant common space for the times we all wanted to be together. Beds were wonderful, plenty of hot water, instantaneous response when we had a problem with the propane for the stove. I also have to mention Irma (the housekeeper) and her family, who live just across the street and provided us with advice, a fabulous home cooked meal, and were ever-ready to help us with anything we needed. Isla Mujeres is not flashy like Cancun, which we appreciate. It is a lovely low-key place, and the Castillo Maya was perfect for us. It is exactly as described on the website, a modern, well equipped and well maintained residence, close to downtown but far enough away to be quiet, the only sound wind and waves. Everyone, aged 21 - 72, loved it.

We rented both El Castillo Maya and Casa Azul Del Caribe for our family of 12. The houses are both beautiful and the shared pool worked great for our group. Im not sure that I would want to share the pool with strangers if we only rented one house though. We enjoyed the roof top palapas and couldnt have asked for a better place to have our morning coffee or evening cocktails. The manager Carlos was there every day and checked in with us and was happy to help with directions, recommendations etc. I've stayed on the Cancun side of Isla (Sac Bajo), North Beach, and Garafon area but I liked this area the best. The house sits on the main road but the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Its also within walking distance of Mango Cafe - our favorite!

Our large group stayed in the house for a week. Beautiful ocean view, pool was perfect. Villa had separate suites that were nice to get away from large group for a bit. Renting a golf cart was a must, we were able to enjoy the entire island, wonderful restaurants throughout. Loved north beach, downtown was totally different at night, was another fun experience. We were able to choose our vacation with a little relaxing and little excitement.

Waterfront, secluded yet close to anything and everything. Plenty of common areas for mixing with other guest and plenty of private vistas when that's not what you have in mind. Rent the entire villa or a smaller space. You will not be disappointed. The staff was fun and helpful. The owners are excellent. We will return ASAP

We stayed here the first week in Dec. the house is very nice and clean. Being right off the ocean allows you to listen to the waves as they come rolling in... This house can accommodate a large group but still allows privacy with your own bedrooms and areas to sit and relax outside. The pool was very clean. Would recommend renting a golf cart if you are staying only a few nights or a whole week. It was nice to hop on the cart and head down to the local supermarket for snacks, breakfast food and whatever you may need & not to mention just driving around and seeing the beautiful countryside and beaches. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Nous avons passé un très beau séjour de 10 jour au El Castillo Maya. La maison est chaleureusement aménagée avec goût par les propriétaires. On a vite l'impression d'être chez soi. De plus, le El Castillo Maya est bien situé en n'étant ni trop dans la zone touristique (playa north) ni trop dans la zone reculée (pointe sud). Il était agréable de marcher tout autour de la villa. Aussi, tous les services étaient bien accessibles. Nous avons bien apprécié la cuisine,le service offert sur place par Irma et les précieux conseils de Carlos qui s'exprime également très bien dans la langue de Molière que Shakespeare. Le manager Jake fût également très courtois et disponible. Nous aurions 2 suggestions à faire. L'achat d'un barbecue et d'une toile pour recouvrir la piscine un peu fraîche.

The house is gorgeous and well-maintained. The pool is cold but refreshing. The staff was amazingly helpful with any questions we had. Really it was a great place to stay on Isla!
