Many years ago when I first visited Isla Mujeres I booked us into Villa Punta Sur. In those days there were no such thing as Facebook pages or Trip Advisor and I had no clue that we were not in the middle of the action. The villas were nice and peaceful but we typically like to be closer to Centro. We usually stay on the east side of the airport strip because as soon as you go out back by the ocean, you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere even though you are on one of the busiest roads on the island. I am constantly on the search for what I call “the best of both worlds”-walking distance to Centro but on the water with a private/isolated feel. My first choice is not always available for the dates that I want it so I am always on the lookout for an alternative.
We visited the Sunset Grill in its new location for the first time this year and in speaking to Felipe, found out that they have two studio apartments for rent just above the restaurant.
We didn’t get a direct look at them because they were occupied but we did familiarize ourselves with the area to the back of the property to find that it too has that remote feeling.
Felipe told us that the studios come complete with a spacious bathroom, one or two beds, AC, good cross ventilation, a fridge and coffee maker and are affordably priced.
With their unique location on the island, you could watch the sunrise from your front door and see the sunset from your rear window.
For an extra special occasion, arrange to watch the sunset from a private cruise of a 37′ sailing lot. The package includes:
– 2 hours PRIVATE sailing tour on the bay to enjoy sunset
– 4 hors de ouevres per person
– 1 bottle of wine for 2 persons from our selection of house wines.
– Soft drinks
– Us $250 for 2 guests
– Us $80 per extra person (maximum 8)
If you are in need of Cruise or Marina information, contact Felipe directly on his website http://sunsetgrill.com.mx/#!/Contact.
