My girlfriend and I went to Isla Mujeres for a nice five-day getaway. Casa El Pio itself was one of the highlights. It's a beautiful, clean little hotel and a great home base for the island.
We didn't really know what to expect from the trip in general, doing minimal research and wanting to mainly relax.
As soon as we made the trek from the airport to the ferry to the island (which was easy to book with the help of Casa El Pio) we only had to walk five minutes to get to the hotel. There we were greeted with a quick tour of the place and then were given a complimentary beer and tequila shot, which was a really nice touch!
After that we explored and realized just how close the hotel is to everything from food to golf carts to the beach. The room was great and a beautiful space, the pool was more needed than I expected (a great way to unwind after a busy morning trekking around the island and before dinner plans), and the rooftop deck was used every early morning to watch the sunrise before we went running along the water.
They also have a guest book with personalized stories and recommendations, which helped us find some places that were off the Yelp/Trip Advisor path.
Overall, a truly wonderful experience!
