My wife and our best friends (a husband and wife) have taken a New Year's beach trip annually for the past ten years. As this was the 10-year anniversary of our trip, we elected to do something we believed to be a bit unconventional for us (a visit to Isla Mujeres to stay in this wonderful home).
David, the owner, had provided great information in advance of our visit to enable us to get from the airport to the island and the home. Our transport to the island was seamless despite our group speaking zero Spanish. Upon arrival to Isla, we were immediately amazed at both its beauty and the unique flavor of the island (much different than places we'd previously visited in Mexico). We immediately made our way to the home.
Upon arrival at the home, we were absolutely blown away. While the published photos are very well done, images simply can't capture the beauty of this place (inside the home, on the grounds, and throughout the island). As a design professional, I was amazed at the attention to detail in the structure's architecture. The structure itself is truly unlike anything I'd ever previously experienced....stunning.
What followed our arrival was several days of absolute bliss. We explored the island (which is beautiful), we played tennis, we relaxed by the pool (which has a swim-up bar), shopped in the local markets, watched sunsets, ate some of the best food I've ever eaten (Amira is unbelievable), and left truly feeling recharged and ready to take on the new year. It should be noted that prior to our experience in this home, I was a bit nervous as I'm a very conservative eater. Those concerns proved to be completely unfounded as I truly enjoyed everything that Amira prepared (I'll say it again, she's unbelievable).
If I could rate every category of our stay, I'd give everything 5 stars...the island, the staff, the ownership, the food, the home. We will without question return to Isla Mujeres and the Casa de las Cupulas. We can't wait until our next visit!
