First try on a trip report, so hopefully it will turn out like I’ve planned!
We just returned from our first full week stay on Isla from 6/19 – 6/26/10, previous day trippers. We loved it. We stayed at Ixchel II in penthouse 709. It was beautiful. The view was gorgeous. Cold a/c, comfortable beds and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The location of Ixchel really is perfect, right on North Beach and close to Hildago restaurants and shops. We rented a golf cart for 4 days out of 7. It was nice to have the convenience of being able to get around, and nice to feel the breeze. We lucked out with the weather, it was horrible Saturday morning when we left – a tropical depression was approaching. It was beautiful, hot and sunny on our arrival and through Wednesday. We had a little rain on Thursday and Friday and then Saturday morning when we left on the ferry it was pouring. I was glad we were leaving in that weather and not arriving.
