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!
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. Sincerely, Marie McGill"
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.
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.
Our stay @ El Castillo Maya, was great !! There were a few bumps in the road upon our arrival , but the housekeeper, property manager and owner were very quick in getting everything taken care of . The house is in a great location and we always felt safe !!! The kids ( and adults ) loved the pool . Our housekeeper, Irma ,helped arrange a snorkeling and fishing trip . They even cooked the fish for us and brought it over to the house that evening !! This was our second time to visit the island and we enjoyed our stay even more .... We can’t wait to go back !!!!!
This was a great house, right next to the ocean. We rented the entire house with 9 people. The hosts are very nice and want to help with whatever they can. Can't really say we had any problems. So great just to jump into the pool when it gets to hot and sticky. Master suite has spectacular views. Thank you Jake and team for the hospitality!
We enjoyed the ocean front and the pool. We especially loved the privacy of the separate rooms and the ability to all be together in the common spaces. The rooftop palapa was gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return!
El Castillo Maya is in a great location on the island close to everything but not right in the middle of town. The property is also situated such that it doesn't feel cramped compared to some of the other properties on island. However, while there are some stores/restaurants/attractions within walking distance, golf cart rental helped make our stay much better (we rented 2). The house was clean and Yoyo, the house manager was very helpful. Grocery store is close with a convenience store very close. The kitchen was provisioned minimally but was more than suitable for us because we didn't do a lot of cooking.
Perfect views and the pool is a big plus!
Lovely place and owners who were staying in the house next door. Great location, clean and spacious house that worked great for the 9 of us. Pool was fantastic! Kitchen was a bit lacking in cookware and towels but it worked for us and they were very responsive. Only downside was that I got locked in an upstairs bathroom for 20 minutes. Lock got stuck and I had to shout out window to get help. Owner fixed right away but made me nervous about other similar locks in house.
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!
