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.
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!

The next day we planned to go to an island called isla mujeres(island of women) which as a guy sounds awesome. The weather forecast was thunderstorms but we thought we would try to explore during our time there. Getting there involved a 20 minute ferry journey and the main selling points of the island are snorkeling with fish and more awesome beaches. We weren't prepared however ...
... shirt , cooked a magnificent lasagna and soup that nobody wants to eat, fixed yet another pair of broken sunglasses, and played a lot of Freecell. We're sailing with Flotus (autopilot) navigating on wind angle. Unfortunately, there's some air in one of her tubes, and she keeps having rudder error alarms. My immediate response is to panic and go around in circles. Ken does not approve of this tactic, but in deference to Betty, I will not ...
... we got to our docking point for lunch that I felt 100% again.
We stopped at Isla Mujeres, a beautiful island off of Cancun and we got to get out and swim in the super clear, super turquoise water. It was so beautiful and amazing, and a great way to relax and recover from the rocky boat. We just chilled in the water and had some lunch.
So, I tell you this story in such detail to tell you this. Even though today was one of the ...

We head over to Coco Bongo and boo we have to wait in line. When we finally get in the place is packed and we catch the last bit of the performance to "I will do anything for love' by Meatball and there are people on suspension ropes flying around the room. It was worth the money. The performances ranged from imitating shows done by Madonna, Beyonce, Queen, Elvis etc, to cirque de soleil type acts (one disturbing one that had the guys were using the ropes in ...
... and the prices are steep. However the waiters are very attentive but, it's worryingly quiet... I order punjabi meat somosas for my starter. They are nice but more like Jamaican patties, so not somosas at all. When the main meals arrive we are all disappointed. The portions are so small the boys can count the pieces of meat in their Tandoori dish. My dish is supposed to be minced chicken sheesh kebabs, but it looks like anaemic veggie ...
