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, it´s 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.
No more dreams here
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.
The house of dreams
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!

I leapt into the sea and started swimming in the wrong direction. I still have a tendency to veer to the right. It's actually quite difficult to see little boats from the water, and asking directions, in Spanish, from a passing dive boat whilst swimming along, and trying to avoid being minced, is also tricky. They took pity on me and answered in perfect English. Once on the right track I soon spotted some scuba divers ...
... and trigonometry (why don't you try swimming perpendicular to the sharks path you idiot) I end up right on top of the beast on a couple of occasions. This is quite disconcerting because you are underwater looking for a shark and thinking, I wish someone would move this building out of my way so I can see the shark before you realize the building is swimming underneath you. Amazing! At one stage the camera was running while I looked for the shark, only to realize it was right in front of ...
... relationship with them as at first they often shout out calling them 'false prophets'. She also said gaining their trust can mean spending the day with wives cooking and if they ask a question answer it. In the seven years they have been there, only seven people have been baptised. It's a slow field for growth but there is lots of potential and they really enjoy being there and preaching to the Mennonites. So not only was the convention amazing but so were ...
... to wait long for a taxi to come by. However, as the mosqutios drew in and started to feed they took pity on us and offered us a ride back downtown on their golf cart if we paid 60 pesos, which was less than we'd paid in the taxi for a journey half the distance in the other direction! Our driver had clearly had a few to drink but I didn't think too much could go wrong in a golf cart. There was a certain amount of veering into the oncoming lane as our driver Júlian gave us a tour in ...

Everything in the hotel zone is double the price of anywhere else in Mexico so you need to watch the spending. We got drenched with rain trying to get a bus on the way home and ended up having to get a taxi. We went to bed hoping the rain would be cleared by ...
