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!”

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.”

Another Great stay!

“We have been to Villa Makax a few times now and love it. It is always very quiet and peaceful, which is just what we look for on a get-away trip. We go up to town for some entertainment and nightlife but are glad to get back to a heated pool and beach that are never crowded because of the limited number of guests. Juan and Serviana do a great job. And it is always fun to see Steve and Lindell.”

Beautiful and Quiet, What more do you need?

“Villa Makax is an amazing piece of property located on a very nice stretch of beach in Isla Mujeres facing Cancun. The pool is the perfect size to relax in and it is crystal clear. The compound and casa’s are super clean and have everything you need to enjoy just a few days or an extended vacation. The beach is very quiet, you can sit in private beach chairs and watch the boats sail by down the coastline. Steve and Lindell are wonderful people who have created a very special spot. A wonderful peace of paradise to relax and meet new friends. We will definitely return to this amazing property.”

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.”

Far exceeded my every expectation, nothing short of paradise!

“Private beachfront, spectacular views, inviting saltwater pool, wonderful host and hostess. Villa Makax is truly a gem on this treasured island. We woke each morning to the sounds of rustling palm leaves, tides lapping against the shoreline, and the serenade of melodious song birds. We began each day with long strolls along the beach, followed by sipping coffee while swinging in a hammock chair suspended from our beach-front porch. For breakfast, we dined el fresco in the shade of one of several palapas on simple meals prepared in our kitchenette. Our days were filled lounging, reading, and swimming at the many beautiful beaches on Isla Mujeres and at the salt water pool on the premises, touring the island, exploring shops, sipping cocktails and dining. It was a nice little slice of paradise! Many thanks to the proprietors, Steve and Lindell.”

A Must!

“Had a fantastic time! We wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation to soak in the beautiful Island views and recharge. Well we accomplished that 🙂 A wonderful location, very serene with just the sound of the waves… and then a few party boats dock to the left of the villas which adds to the day with just the right amount of people watching… perfect:) Highly recommend… all the reviews are spot on. Will definitely go back!”
