Reviews from Our Guests


Property is just as pictured

We have stayed at Ixchel multiple times and this is one of the nicest properties we have had the pleasure of visiting. The unit is just as pictured and the remodel makes it feel much larger than any of the other units we have rented. The expansive master suite and bathroom are fantastic!!! The views from the balcony are stunning and the unit has everything you need. The beds were also very comfortable. I was happy that we were able to check in as would any normal hotel guest. This saved time in not having to deal with a property… Read more “Property is just as pictured”


Incredible Stay

Definitely the best unit we have stayed in at Ixchel. View is wonderful, renovations are nice, unit is clean and beds are comfortable. Will rent this unit in the future as well. Thanks Kate and Stephane for making our stay comfortable. ~The Nobles


Best Family Beach Vacation

Beautiful condo with a spectacular beach view! My family and I stayed at Katy and Stephan’s condo for a week and had an amazing time exploring Isla Mujeres. Katy was always quick to respond to any questions we had and provided helpful advise regarding arrival to and departure from the island. We booked a round trip private transportation from Cancun airport to the ferry (that takes you to Isla Mujeres) through CARM tours and transfers (as Katy suggested). It was perfect! They had cold water bottles and beer ready for our arrival. These were additional costs you can add when… Read more “Best Family Beach Vacation”



Would highly recommend to friends and family


Absolutely Beautiful!!

This is an absolutely beautiful condo. It is very tastefully decorated and the view is spectacular. Stephane and Kate did an amazing job remodeling their condo. Check in to the property was seamless with no problems at all. The beds were some of the most comfortable we’ve ever slept in. I’d have to say that the dehumidifier’s are a huge plus in drawing the humidity out of the air. The front desk staff were wonderful and made checking in seamless. Thank you so much for sharing your home away from home for others to enjoy!!! We will definitely be returning!


The best!

Katy’s apartment at Ixchel is the most beautiful one we’ve ever stayed at in the seven years we’ve been coming to Ixchel. Exquisitely remodeled with comfortable furniture throughout, with luxury bath and kitchen appointments—and the view from the 6th floor is perfect with plenty of seating and afternoon shade on the terrace. Couldn’t wish for more! We hope to return.


Great Condo and Location on Stunning Beach

Very well kept, lovey and comfortable condo in a great location. Nicely stocked with all the basics and more. The bed and bedding were extremely cozy and comfortable, big plus! Host was very helpful, providing detailed information prior to visit. The Ixchel hotel amenities and staff were excellent. Great experience!


Best Ever

The condo was awesome just as last time. Enjoyed the 7 days and everything was seamless! Thanks again!


Fantastic stay in paradise

First time in this condo at Ixchel Resort…….have loved this resort for years and stayed in many units but since the remodel on this one, it is heads above others for the interior.


Amazing location and the condo renovations were 5 star!

Condo staff was great – helpful, responsive and the reserved beach area/chairs/umbrellas were superb! Katy and Stephane have a beautiful unit with wonderful luxury upgrades. Our bucket list for whale shark snorkeling was definitely satisfied! Shout out to the following restaurants: Bertha’s by Rooster, Javi’s, Sunset Grill and Aroma Isla. Katy and Stephane are amazing hosts and always focused on their guests’ experience. Kim, July 1 -7, 2018


Exceeded all expectations!

Can’t say enough….. Beautiful place and we will definitely be coming back. I had the opportunity to look at a couple other rental units while at Ixchel and nothing came close. Very comfortable, quiet and always felt safe. Staff and security is top notch. A/C works fantastic along with dehumidifier. Perfect location on the best beach with grocery, restaurants and shopping within 2-5 minute walking distance.


Beautiful Condo

The view and Condo was everything they said it was and more. Had a great time and can not wait to go back!


Better than the pictures!

This condo was amazing! The best unit by far during our 7 stays at Ixchel. It had everything and our family had the most wonderful stay. The owners were great to deal with. We would definitely stay here again.



Great Property! Easy access to everything. We will be back.


Wonderful trip!

We just returned and had a wonderful time! The condo was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and very clean! Perfect location on the best beach and easy walk to the main restaurants and shopping. Would absolutely stay there again:)!



I believe this is the 9th property we’ve stayed at over the years on Isla and by far our favorite! Katy was so attentive and the condo tastefully decorated. A perfect location and not a thing to complain about. The staff are wonderful and helpful and we can’t wait to return!


We Loved It!

This “condo within a hotel” was perfect for our family of five! The decor and the view were both top notch! The service at the affiliated hotel is excellent, including the very attentive food and drink service at the beach and pool. The hotel staff brought in an extra bed for no charge so each of our children had their own bed to sleep on in bedroom 2, and my wife and I had a king in the master bedroom, very comfortable! The owner was available, professional and very helpful. Overall, we loved Isla and loved this condo!

Beautiful Accommodations!

We recently returned from a wonderful weeks stay at Katy & Stephan’s lovely 2BR Condo 606-605 Phase II at Ixchel. My husband, sister & I truly enjoyed our accommodations. It is very comfortable and was certainly hard to leave. I can highly recommend staying in this lovely space. A very nice feature of this unit was being on the 6th floor. From the patio, you have a view of the pools and beach/sea, and from the hallway by the front door, you have an extensive view of the sea and sunsets. At night quests would quietly gather in the hallway… Read more “Beautiful Accommodations!”


Relaxing Girl’s Getaway

We chose to stay at Katy’s condo for a short girls getaway in Isla. The condo was very spacious – the two bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room and kitchen gave us all plenty of room to relax and hang out. We LOVED making coffee and watching the sunrise from the patio around 6:30 am. The property was very clean, well decorated, and we quickly felt at home. The beach at Ixchel, in our opinion, was the best on the island. As condo guests, we were supplied with towels and amenities just like a hotel. The condo is also in a… Read more “Relaxing Girl’s Getaway”


Beautiful view!!

This was our 4th visit to Isla and our 1st stay at this condo. The location is perfect! Close to everything. Located on the best beach on the island. Very clean. Wonderfully decorated! Amazing views from the balcony with very nice table and seating for 6. It is shaded in the afternoon which is perfect for enjoying the view without baking in the hot sun. The WiFi, A/C and satellite TV were all very reliable. The size was perfectly spacious for our family of 5. During our downtime at the condo my kids really appreciated the Legos and wide variety… Read more “Beautiful view!!”


Amazing stay

I can’t say enough good things about this property and the owners. The condo has a perfect location on isla and has an amazing view of the ocean. All the amenities were first class, the building was very well kept and the staff were incredibly friendly. Get used to saying Hola! Katy was very helpful and responded very quickly to all of our questions and concerns. She certainly made our first stay on isla an easy and stress free experience.


Loved our stay!

This is our second time staying in the Ixchel Condos in Isla and the first staying in this unit. First, the condo unit overall is well-maintained and VERY convenient/walking distance to the main street in Isla, where all the restaurants spill out into the street cafe style. And, Ixchel is right on Playa Norte, which is the best swimming in Isla. The staff (front desk, concierge, housekeeping and grill/bar) are all so hospitable and helpful and the place is impeccably maintained. It had been four plus years since our last visit and the place is just as nice. This unit… Read more “Loved our stay!”
