WELCOME TO VILLA AMISTAD. Inspired and inviting, Villa Amistad embodies comfort, style and total relaxation in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Leave your worries behind and enjoy a sun-kissed holiday where overlooking the endless Mexican Caribbean is a way of life.
Villa Amistad was professionally designed and built by architect Ivonne Gamio. The Villa was inspired by the designs of Barragon and Legoretta to provide comfort, luxury, privacy and lifelong memories. Situated on the Caribbean side of Isla Mujeres, guests will enjoy the rolling waves of the sea and the steady flow of ocean air. The villa was designed with graded, step-down floors, providing the feeling of walking out into the ocean.
This contemporary Mexican retreat nestled in the bustling town of Isla Mujeres, Mexico is framed against the majestic turquoise Caribbean ocean on one side, and only steps away from the island's shopping, dining and exploring on the other.
Turquoise water. Endless Ocean Breezes. Warm, soft sand. Picturesque sunsets. Villa Amistad provides a spectacular setting for your next island escape.
A full time staff provides weekly maid, pool, gardening and security services. Guests are greeted upon arrival by an English-speaking host to provide an introduction to the facilities and answer questions concerning your stay.
Although Villa Amistad has everything you would want in a vacation home, you may want to enjoy other things that the island of Isla Mujeres has to offer. You can swim with dolphins, go sailing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, or snorkeling. For an off-island excursion you can explore Mayan ruins, swim in cenotes and enjoy shopping in Cancun.
Whether you choose to explore the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres, or enjoy the comforts of the villa, everything you could ever want in a vacation home is provided at Villa Amistad.

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this home...gorgeous!! The views were breathtaking. Waking up to the ocean right in front of us was just incredible. The house was clean, beautiful, had lots of character, very conveniently located. Two of the bedrooms are ideally situated facing the ocean, the other two don't have those views but all rooms are equally comfortable. I would love to stay here again!
8 of us arrived to find a gorgeous home that was everything we had hoped for! However, after several of us had been traveling all day and experiencing long airport delays, the power and water went off just when it was time to take showers and unwind. It was out from 9pm to 1030am the next morning so the night was spent trying to maneuver around in the heat and darkness. Most of us didn't sleep because of the high humidity and heat. I requested that the charges for that night be refunded or reduced significantly as paying $500 for a house without power and water was excessive! My request was denied but the sent their assistant over with 2000 Pesos and was told that it was the equivelent to $200. but after doing the conversion it was around $109. USD. According to the guest register, the guests before us also experienced a power outage so this was an ongoing problem that had not been corrected prior to our arrival.
After the power and water were restored we absolutely loved our stay! I would recommend the layout for 3 couples and 2 teens or children due to the lack of privacy in the upstairs bedroom that's off the main hallway and is just partitioned off.
The Villa Amistad was absolutely perfect. Let’s see if I can recount from the beginning of the trip to the end of the trip. Upon arriving at the house we were greeted by Kate (whom I did have to call on our way to the island). She gave us a great rundown of the place (minus the part where the oven has to be lit with a match, there is no pilot light). The house was perfect. There was AC in every room. All of the rooms were clean. There was clean/fresh water for us to use. The views from the house were breathtaking. I don’t think I have ever stayed anywhere in my life that had such great views. The house was really close to Hidalgo Street, restaurants, and bars. We only had one issue while we were there; the power went out due to a blown fuse (or two). Luckily the awesome new owners were staying next door; they fixed the fuses and restored power within just a few hours. It was the best example of customer service I have ever received in my life. We had 8 people staying with us in the house, and it fit all of us comfortably. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent this property again, and again, and again, and again. The management company (Yazmin) was VERY responsive and a pleasure to work with, her team (Kate) was a great help to us on the island, and the owners were friendly (really helped us out BIG time with letting us use their showers) and extremely helpful. Checkout was a breeze with Kate. She showed up on time and did a walk through with us. If you are thinking about renting this place, stop thinking and just do it….it will be one of the best decisions you will ever make.
Arrived 8 hours late first day and was thrilled with accommodation with 30% if trip left no gas. No cooking or laundry facility available for 8 people. When gas dryer issue happened the gas dryer broke and damaged our clothes and owners towels. The owner was going to wilthold damage deposit because guest cleaned towels. Owner seems to blame guest for damages first. We should have been compensated for meals out and inconvenience instead they cared about towels.
Villa Amistad is the perfect getaway. This lovely multi-level house has it all, oceanfront views, luxurious infinity pool, first rate furnishings, very comfortable bedrooms and a rooftop palapa. With it's convenient location near the center of town, guests have no need for a car. Restaurants, shops, ferry terminal and even North Beach are all within walking distance. Can't wait to return to Villa Amistad!
We had a brief but wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. Close to town and beach as well as sitting right on the Caribbean edge of the island. Looks and sounds like you could touch the ocean. All high end finishes and touches, the bedding was dreamy! Hope to go back soon.
