Oyster Review Summary

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

Chac Chi Suites & Hotel provides a calmer alternative to the area's larger properties. While it lacks many of the amenities of a large resort, the condo-style units are quite large and clean (if fairly bland, decor-wise), and suites are available with multiple bedrooms, a kitchenette, and balconies or a terrace. The building isn't located directly on the beach (North Beach is about two minutes away by taxi), and the outdoor pool is very small, but the rooftop solarium provides some great views and a Jacuzzi. It's certainly not the most romantic or luxurious option on the island, but it's a decent fit for families traveling on a budget.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a quiet residential area of Isla Mujeres, just a few minutes from the beach and city center

The Chac Chi suites are located in a residential area of Isla Mujeres, within walking distance of the ferry terminal to the mainland. It's about a $2 cab ride to North Beach or to shopping in the city center, although there is a small market nearby for quick purchases.

Isla Mujeres is a small island located eight miles east of Cancun. Meaning "Island of Women," Isla Mujeres got its name from Spanish conquistadors who discovered numerous idols in honor of Ix Chel, the Mayan goddess of childbirth and fertility. Only five miles long and half a mile wide, it's historically been a quiet, secluded fishing village. But as vacationers have flocked to the Riviera Maya section of the Yucatan Peninsula, Isla Mujeres has experienced a boom in tourism. For travelers in search of a more tranquil, relaxing experience far from the rowdiness and endless bustle of Cancun, the island is an ideal getaway spot.

In addition to swimming, snorkeling, and shopping, there are also a number of sights to see on Isla Mujeres, such as the old mansion and gardens of Hacienda Mundaca, the easternmost part of Mexico and the highest elevation in the Yucatan, Punta Sur, the reefs of Garrafon Park, and the lovely soft sands of Playa Norte.

  • 2-minute walk to the mainland ferry terminal
  • 8-minute walk to Hacienda Mundaca
  • 4-minute walk to downtown Isla Mujeres
  • 2-minute drive to Playa Norte
  • 3-minute drive to Garrafon Park
  • 10-minute drive to Dolphin Discovery
  • 12-minute drive to Punta Sur
