Love The Place, Love The Owners!!
We lived here for 2 months. We have stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedrooms, and I have been in the 3-bedroom many times. My review would be the same for all. Let me hop up on my soapbox for a minute and tell you how I determine whether I want to stay at a property and how much credence I give to any reviews. It's very simple....If multiple reviewers give the property a low rating, there's probably a problem with the property. If multiple reviewers give the property a high rating, with only 1 or 2 complainers...there's probably a problem with the reviewer. Some people just can't be pleased, or didn't do their homework. There are very clear descriptions and pictures showing the layout and configurations of the bedrooms. We had a couple visiting for 16 days and we let them have the king bedroom. One reviewer suggests something to the effect that the couple in the second bedroom wouldn't be happy unless they didn't like each other. I beg to differ! My husband and I have been married for 35 years and like each other just fine. We made a conscious choice to rent this apartment, and as such, adapted to make it work. I had to laugh at the mention of height and that Missy wouldn't listen to complaints. If I were her 1 would have said "I really can't control how tall you are and I certainly didn't map out your sleeping arrangements.". Oh Lordy. This is Isla Mujeres. Many of the local workers are Mayan, and the Mayan people are culturally shy and submissive and many don't speak English OR Spanish. I know the young man who was referenced and he is extremely shy, and was probably going for help. I would be curious to know if the renters showed up early for check in. Some people do, and then are upset if the room isn't ready. Go figure.
Okay then. We love all three apartments that are part of this property. We love the location..it's busy, it can be noisy. It's in the heart of downtown and that's what we signed up for when we rented it. I love watching the people..locals and foreigners alike can be extremely entertaining (even when not meaning to be). It's a unique place and I love it. It's not like home, and I respectfully submit that if it's important to you to have everything be like it is at home..you probably should skip this little piece of paradise. As for my husband and I and the friends to whom we've introduced this place to (both the island and these apartments), we will happily return year after year!
