Our Guests Say

Isla Adventures

“We have traveled extensively and this was by far one of our greatest trips! Steve and Lindell were amazing. Beautiful accommodations, wonderful salt water pool, wonderful views. I really enjoyed the location on the island: away from the “ hub bub” but close enough to get anywhere. Taxis are 100 pesos no matter where you go and I do recommend the freedom of a golf cart for several days. We will definitely be back!”
— Jennifer & Jim


“The property is simply perfect – tucked away and yet a quick walk to local beach restaurants and town. Steve is most hospitable and friendly and we couldn’t have asked for anything more while there. Hope to be back!!”

Wonderful Villa

“This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in years. Our Villa was wonderful! The view from the pool was spectacular and having our own palapa to watch the sunset was spectacular! Juan was very helpful when we arrived, within 30 minutes he had a golf cart for us, which I highly recommend if you come here you rent a golf cart. I am already planning my return trip!”

If you were looking for a sign to book, THIS IS IT!!!

“Truly don’t know where to start, we had the opportunity to travel anywhere we wanted, and when we saw Isla and this listing, it was decided at once. And there were NO REGRETS to be had. I can’t speak highly enough about Steve, Lindell and the property. The photos don’t do it justice… it’s breath-taking. If you were looking for a slice of heaven, local recommendations, and peaceful beach with a killer view of the sunset… go ahead and just hit book now! We are planning our trip back, and we will never settle for less than Villa Makax! Thank you again Steve and Lindell, you two really have made the most grand escape from reality. See you soon!!”

Incredibly relaxing vacation

“Steve and Lindell have created a quiet and comfortable paradise to relax and recharge. The views are stunning, villas are clean and well equipped, grounds are immaculately manicured. Can’t quite find the words to describe how blessed we are to have spent a week at Villa Makax. Thank you Steve and Lindell! We will be back”

Peaceful Retreat

“Our experience at this property was nothing short of magnificent. We were one of two couples on the property for the week. We had ocean views from the pool or the palapa on the beach. We rented a golf cart and had our own island excursions when we chose and enjoyed the property at our leisure. The host, Steve, was attentive when necessary and respectful of our privacy as well. It was just the experience we were looking for.”
— Chris M.

It’s really a gem

“Truly a lovely place on the bay looking across to Cancun. Away from the hustle of El Centro but a short taxi ride away it’s a calm spot to really relax and enjoy the pool, sit on a beach chair, go for a swim in the bay or just read a book. The owners are absolutely wonderful people and have been on the island for decades. You’ll love them. The casitas are perfect, everything you need and nothing you don’t. The bed is extremely comfortable and air conditioning is a nice touch although we really never used it, preferring to sleep with the large sliding door open and the screen in place and enjoying a gentle breeze from the ceiling fan. I’m looking forward to coming back to Villa Makax and it will be my first choice as a place to stay on the island. It’s really a gem.”
