EL GRAN ESCAPE' TROPICAL PARADISE-INSIDE AND OUT! UPGRADES GALORE!

Isla Mujeres House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 full baths w/ walk in stone showers, 1half bath, 1poolside bath

El Gran Escape: As you look across the infinity pool out to the far reaching horizon framing your view of the Caribbean Sea you grasp a true sense of the infinite and your place in it. Our pool boasts a shallow sunning area and swim up bar with seating for six. Your hardest decision will be whether to get in the jacuzzi or possibly retreat for a siesta in one of the four bedrooms, three of which have a full view of the sea and surf. After all you may want to rest up for the BBQ you are planning in the outdoor kitchen. Or, since you have been spending enough time in relaxation and contemplation, you may want to take a taxi or golf cart the few kilometers to town for a bit of night life. The traditional Mayan town is just far enough away to afford both privacy and excitement depending on your mood. If you wish to stay in this tranquil Casa for the evening we can assist with catering, provisioning and daily maid service for an additional fee. More photos at www.elgranescapeisla.com

We had the very fortunate opportunity to stay at El Gran Escape for the second time. We needed to see if we could try to top our first stay because it was that great! Well, it just got better and better. No picture you see will ever compare to what your eyes will see here in person. With a gorgeous palace and breath taking views you can see from most of the rooms, it's really difficult to leave and head back to "reality." Julie and Dick were very accommodating hosts and had a ton of suggestions for things to do on the island. Even though there was plenty to do on the island, we really were quite content with sitting pool side and gazing over the infinity pool with the ocean in the background. Every night I looked forward to the sounds of the giant water fall in the living room. And every morning I looked forward to waking to the sounds of the ocean and the gorgeous view from our bedroom. Until next time Isla and El Gran Escape!

Trip of a Lifetime!
We recently stayed at Escape to celebrate the New Year and my 30th birthday with a group of our friends. The house could not have been more beautiful and had all the comforts of home, even Wi-Fi. We had absolutely everything we needed and everything worked, including the filtered water ice maker, which can be hard to find in Mexico. The fridge, dish washer and washer/dryer seemed to have all been recently replaced. They had everything that we needed to cook at home and had no issues with any of the appliances.
If you are staying with a group of people, it is perfect as every room has its own bathroom, safes and beautiful views, of course. You have your own private pool and hot tub. It was wonderful being able to be in the hot tub when it rained or in the evenings. The neighbors were all fabulous and friendly, and we all felt very safe.
Julie was wonderful, told us all of the best places to go, gave us recommendations for golf cart rentals and made sure to check in to make sure things were going well. They were even kind enough to meet us at the ferry. It was such a memorable trip and we cannot wait to go back!

Gorgeous House & Pool but nothing Worked!

Gorgeous House & Pool but nothing Worked!

I wasn’t going to post this because the house and pool were so beautiful but after reading the review of the people that stayed there in July and were robbed, I felt I must -


We arrived at the house about 2:00 pm on Monday, June 10th – the house and pool were GORGEOUS!!!!! – Leslie met us and was very accommodating – she gave us her phone number and said to let her know if we needed anything – then she advised us the dishwasher didn’t work – ok…no big deal – I noticed that there were towels in the dryer and just assumed they were dry – that evening I checked and found that the towels were wet and tried to turn on the dryer – as did everyone else – and was notified by Pedro the dryer did not work but he would bring us new towels every day and take the wet ones to wash and dry – ok….no big deal – then we noticed the AWESOME waterfall wall leaked water all over the dining room floor – so Pedro said if we wanted to use it he would come by every day and mop up the floor…..hhhmmm…..The pool and Jacuzzi were AMAZING! – well the pool was – the Jacuzzi didn’t work……this is still Monday. Tuesday we go to lunch and come back and we have been robbed – IPAD, $900 cash, camera and iphone – so that’s when we are given the codes to the safes – The police came to investigate and told us this house had been robbed two or three times in the past – would have been good to know - Wednesday morning at 1:00 am – my sister hears someone at her sliding glass door – jumps up – opens the curtains – and it’s the grounds keeper – without a shirt on – just checking to see if we are ok – seriously????? The day before we leave, we get up and NO WATER – the water came back on later in the day – no explanation - just something that happens is what we were told –
Owner's Response: As an homeowner not on the island at the time I had entrusted my employee of three years to care for and maintain my home to the standards which I had expected for the past 6 years while I was off the island for couple of months. Much to my dismay and those of my guests things went down very quickly and in my absence he took great advantage. I was sending down money for issues that needed to be repaired as soon as I was notified only to find he was keeping the money and not making the needed repairs. I have since fired this person and have a wonderful Property management team who take great pride in not only my home on the island but others and I have nothing but rave reviews from my last 2 weeks of guests. We have since replaced our washer/dryer and dishwasher. The jacuzzi is and has always been just a jacuzzi not a hot tub but we are however converting that in October. The tranquil water fall in the living room has been newly sanded so the water will not bounce off of the top trough over onto the floor.
I have no doubt that all future guests will find our Casa to be just what the Spanish name says "The Great Escape" in paradise.

Beautiful home, but not everything promised!

The pictures are everything described. Beautiful views!

When we arrived we discovered quickly that NONE of the appliances were working! With a family of 8 not having a dishwasher, oven, washer, dryer etc made it a challenge.

The owner emailed and said she believed appliances were in working order, but I believe that is an untruth because some locals mentioned she had plans on replacing them many months ago. I do not like to be lied to or mislead.

The kicker of the it all is we had 2 watches stolen from our bags while the cleaning crew was there.

We give it 3 stars and not just 1 because how can you be upset vacationing in paradise and our family just made the best of it.

If you book, just beware that you won't have all the amenities possible and do not leave your bags unattended.

FABULOUS TRIP AND HOME!!!!

There were 6 of us that stayed at El Gran Escape for a week over my hubby's 40th bday and we couldn't be happier! The house is amazing! Beautiful, well equipped with appliances, utensils, pans, towels, etc. The pool was our favorite spot, as well as the land between the pool and ocean (we had Iguana friends we would feed daily). Julie met us upon arrival and was very helpful with places to go, things to do, etc. Any time we needed anything,, we text her and she replied within 5 minutes. We didn't need Pedro (groundskeeper) for much, but he checked daily to see if we used the grill and cleaned it when we did. We are all planning our next trip - not sure I would ever stay anywhere else after this!!!!
The grocery store is only minutes away via golf cart, but we did have Julie stock food and drinks for us. A couple pieces of info for you though - they do not have much for domestic beer AT ALL!!! And the couple that likes a firm bed should take the upstairs bedroom with the wonderful patio). We would all highly recommend this home to anyone!
