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.
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!

... 12.55. C'est la vie. So we headed back to the hotel we stayed at last night to ask for our room back, which thankfully, we got (and for less money!)
Not really sure what to do with ourselves, we went to the supermarket to get some bakery goods (becoming a bit of theme...) and got another R1 bus, determined to either find Tortugas Beach or make it to Isla Mujeres. There was a man playing the saxophone about three inches from my ear for most of the journey. There's a weird ...

We used the wifi at Rackams Bar on Monday night, then teetered home. At 10.30 Tuesday morning we were checked out and underway - heading for Mexico. I still haven't got used to the fact that you can change your mind and go to a different country on a whim.
It's about 325 nautical miles to Mexico. We sort of average about 6 knots, so it should ...

An hour after eating had to go down to the buffet (which happened to be mexican fiesta night) and have some burritos and churros to fill ourselves up. Fine dining definitely isn't our thing. We need big portions haha. There was a Mexican band playing, the lasso dancer was there and lots of games for the kids. Good fun!
We picked up a few things in our gift store before heading back to bed.

... in being sick, but luckily they called me to jump my last time. I made sure Jaime was ok, and he was, but I got in alone this time. Well, me and the guide.
My third time I was able to swim alongside this particular Whale Shark for a good while. We were told to stay about arms length away from it and by its head, because if the tail whipped around, it could seriously injure somebody. And no, we were absolutely not allowed to touch ...
... food but as the food places all had open kitchens I could decide where I wanted to eat if at all! It has such a lovely atmosphere. Children running around playing, adults eating at the tables and there is always someone playing an instrument or singing. I can't imagine this in a local park at home. It feels very safe and just to make sure there is an allocated police office amongst the food vendors. At lunch Mike and I had burritos ...
