... live music at La Terraza. I befriended the band members of "Frecuencia Tropical" and ended up playing my song "Higher Ground" with them. Also, I befriended our waiter Alberto whom was incredibly nice and laughed at us all night. Later, we walked home in the ocean breeze.
The Maya reef is the second larges in the world and after breakfast and swimming in the ocean (large waves due to storms), we got to see a part of it ...

There are plenty of signs saying no swimming and warning for crocs! A guy comes up to us and says...you wanna try it!? I say.. Ya I'd love to but eh there are crocodiles in there!!!! The man says the crocodiles are his friends and worst case scenario the guy in the boat has a gun! Ya..no thanks!!!! I am not ready to ...

Locals hang out on their concreted front porches in typical white painted concrete houses, perhaps with an ornate spattering of artistically painted tiles. Kids play hide and seek in the street..

... restaurant we'd found. It was pretty tasty but soon we developed a taste for a beer or two and ended up going to a Tequila bar however, it didn't agree with me so I let the boys carry on - although I think Wayne only managed two. We took Wayne to another Cuban bar for a few more beers before he admitted he was tired - good going seeing as it was now after 12am!
After a settling in beach day for Wayne, we decided to go golf carting on the Saturday. I ...

Enchiladas – never really been my thing.
There are a couple so-called “night clubs” but most of the serious drinking takes place at tables along the pedestrian walkway of Avenida Hidalgo. Good happy hour specials, good people watching and good opportunities to elbow people in the ****** as they wander past distracted by their search for the perfect dolphin-shaped key chain for their ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa de los Suenos Isla Mujeres
Loved Wayakc, Casa de los Suenos
If you want to know how paradise is on Earth, please go to Isla Mujeres in Cancun. There is a nice hotel where you can spend a real luxury experience. The name of this hotel is Casa de los Suenos, Wayakc. Is in the southern side of Isla Mujeres, an 8km island in the mexican caribbean.
With only 8 rooms, a great gym, a perfect and wellcoming spa. The best service. International food and we didn't got sick at all. They treated us like if we were in heaven.
Casa de los Suenos is paradise.
The best dream in my life
The place is amazing, the staff is the best, we felt like home, you never want to leave, itīs hard to go back to the real world. We are going back next year. The spa zenter is incredible. You need to live that dream.
Although 7 previous vacations spent at this establishment were dreamlike, the latest visit in Feb. 2004 was a nightmare! My husband and I were staying at another boutique hotel nearby, but decided to book appointments at La Casa's acclaimed day spa. We were anxious to see the remodeled rooms and meet the new management. The whole experience was a total disappointment. Management was less than hospitable and would only show us one of the smaller rooms, even though the hotel was not full. My expensive massage was ok, but my husband was extremely dissatisfied with his. I also paid for a french manicure ($45.00 without tip) and. although the "manicurist" was nice, my nails looked like a 5 year old painted them. If I hadn't paid so much, it would have been funny! The final straw was when we were offered a lunch menu following our appointments. The least expensive thing on the menu was $45.00! We decline the meal and were hurriedly ushered out the door. Management didn't even offer to call a taxi! This place will get no recommendations from us.
The dream house, became our two day dream!What can i say...Tranquility attention to detail, personal service from a great team4/04/04
Not so zen
The place is wonderful, except the totally charmless dining room (small, freezing and with no view). But if you consider the ridiculous and depressing breakfast they propose (everything you ask is added as an "extra"), it might be not a problem. The bedroom, so expensive, is also rather small. You are invited to save water, but very often encouraged to spend your money (even not a free drink to welcome you !). In fact, the unfriendly staff seems very preoccupied by the customer's credit card. Magic sentences about peace and love (one different every evening on your pillow) don't replace nice and true people. After our so magic trip through the haciendas in Yucatan, we were really disappointed !
The Good - amazing views, beautiful rooms, good service, fab beach bar - when they open it.The bad - If you go out late it is difficult to get back in. It basically runs more or less as a B&B.The Ugly - Also at the end of your stay they add on 15% charge for staff tips!!! Never heard of this before and felt rather embarrased that it was added. As the rooms are not cheap. I think the hotel should also have a meet and greet service for the ferry as you have to lug heavy suitcases around yourself.
Since being sold last year, this property has undergone a complete metamorphosis. It still retains the colorful charm of it's past, but all the rooms have been completely refurbished with new furnishings and colors. The beds easily compare to Westin's "heavenly beds" with soft white Frette sheets and large fluffy pillows. Newly added mini refrigerators were a welcome suprise, stocked with snacks and beverages. The spa and relaxation Zenter can't be missed. New beautiful Palapas have been constructed, providing just enough shade and shelter during thsoe occasional rain storms. Afterward, sit and watch the clouds part as the sun sets. Be sure to check out it's new web site at www.wayakc.com. After you look at the site you will be overwhelmed with a desire to go to Isla! Congratulations to new owner Alma on her new "House of Dreams."
What can I say?
This is the most amazing place we have ever been to. It was such a peaceful, serene and surreal atmosphere, that we hope to go again. The pool, the rooms, the food, the massages were the best. Just the perfect place to get away from the kids and the job...We will definitely stay here again!
Can you get any info?
After reading several interesting references to this property-we met a total stone wall. None of our inquiries were answered. We booked at another location last week and when we stopped by to see the property we were told they were booked and we could not! Needless to say we lost interest. We stayed at the Villa Rolandi instead where we enjoyed this fabulous island immensely. But we are perplexed.
We can't stay away!
This has become our home away from home. Everything about "La Casa" is a delight to the senses--from the gracious hospitality of Danielle and Francois Michon, the delicious food, the fabulous colorful architecture, charming and comfortable accommodations, the dazzling sunsets over the turquoise water, to the view of Cancun's twinkling lights at night across the bay. Muy tranquilo! It is no wonder that we have visited La Casa 6 times in the past 3 years, and we hope to return again and again in the future!
