Custom designed by the owner to combine the best features of island living with the comfort and luxury to which you are accustomed, El Castillo Maya has two beautiful palapa areas for your relaxation and enjoyment. The “Tortuga Palapa” on the second level just outside of the Tortuga Suite to the open terrace where there is a private entrance to the Master Suite. Up another level above the Master Bedroom Suite is “The Blue Moon Palapa”, a large rooftop terrace, partially shaded featuring a colorful crescent moon bar with a blue glass-block base topped with turquoise blue glass crystal. With lots of bar stools and lounge chairs, friends, this is an incredible place to meet with family and to enjoy refreshments and conversation at your own home!
Island-themed tile and stone handwork can be seen throughout on the floors of the palapas and in and around the house. Carved rails adorning the exterior staircases and the interior stairs and carved handrails are fashioned of salam, a local exotic hardwood noted for its durability and dark burnished beauty. Glass blocks are strategically placed in walls to welcome sunlight, and in the master suite to showcase a collection of seashells. Local art is displayed on the walls and throughout the house.
The house was designed for maximum versatility. The ground-level oceanfront two bedroom unit has a large living room opening onto the pool deck and ocean beyond through sliding glass doors. A fully equipped kitchen and dining room are adjacent. The beautiful staircase leads up to the second floor Master Suite, which can be rented separately by locking the door at the top of the staircase and entering through a private exterior entry, or used as the master bedroom of a three bedroom house. The Master Suite has a King bed, a Jacuzzi tub with panoramic ocean view, a kitchenette area, with sink, fridge and coffee maker.
The additional separate Luxury Studio, with full kitchen, full bathroom with shower, queen bed, and couch can be a private and complete fourth bedroom, or can be rented separately. The entire villa is attractively and comfortably furnished to make your stay even more enjoyable.
Above the Luxury Studio, you will find the newly built Tortuga Suite. It features a king size bed, kitchenette, sunlit shower room, large screen TV and a private terrace overlooking the ocean. Like the Studio, it can be added to complete the 5 bedroom house or is available separately, depending on the season.
El Castillo Maya sits side-by-side with Casa Azul del Caribe, another new house with four bedrooms. Owned separately, they share a lovely patio and swimming pool with swim up bar. They can be combined to sleep 16-20 people, making this a perfect place to host a family reunion or a wedding. The entire complex is nicely landscaped and has plenty of off-street parking for golf-carts and other vehicles. What a great place to enjoy your island vacation!

This house was amazing and loved it!
The location was perfect for us. Being right next to the skatepark was an extra bonus as we had teenagers that brought their boards with them. There are so many cool places to hang out, the roof top bar, the outdoor area with a big table where we played games in the eve, the beach front pool. So much space, would definitely stay here again! The only complaint was we had a few in our party that seemed to wake up with some kind of bug bites. All in all it was a great experience.
Exactly what we wanted
We had a wonderful time at El Castillo Maya. We have stayed on Isla many times but this was our first go at renting a house. The house is in the middle of the island and very close to everything you wanted to on the island. Everything was perfect and we would rent this house again.
Relaxing ocean front property
We had a fantastic time staying at Colonia Salina Chica. It was a perfect fit for our family and friends. The house's location is great and the constant breeze from the ocean made it a very comfortable place to be. The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean and very functional. The pool is beautiful and was well taken care of during our stay. As we rented the entire house we had access to all the wonderful decks/patios and enjoyed it immensely. Irma (the cleaning lady) and all the support staff was wonderful.
We would definitely stay again.
Beautiful house right on the water. Very comfortable and good location
We had a wonderful time. The weather was great. We had a wonderful snorkeling trip. And also had a fishing trip. Isla Mujeres never fails to be a great trip.
A great place for a family retreat !
This property was a perfect fit for our family get together with clean rooms, comfortable beds, a lovely pool with a beautiful view, privacy when needed and several accommodating spaces to gather. The location was great, outside of the hustle and noise of the downtown but, a pleasant walk or taxi/cart ride to the Playa Norte or La Colonia through the nearby neighborhood with a variety of food choices and convenience stores.
Beyond the property itself, the owners and the management team were wonderful. All very kind, communicative and accommodating from the booking, on site services and even in sorting a few last minute adjustments while we were there.
We look forward to staying here again next time we are on Isla Mujeres!
Lots to like
We rented both homes for a week stay. They are both top notch homes and the ocean front location (though too rough to swim in this time of year) and the pool raise the bar. It’s located mid island between the touristy section to the north & the southern tip. We rented golf carts for most of our duration which was a solid idea and ate lunches & dinners out. Had no bad meals & lots of great ones & didn’t reach $30 a head with alcohol which says a lot about the great value here. See my yelp reviews for restaurant tips. We’d stay here again with couples or our kids. Limited English tv (no cnn!) a plus & sketchy internet though our cell service & data was fine so we remained handheld attached (😢). A super trip.
