Villa Rolandi, in Isla Mujeres is just a short yacht ride away from Cancun, but worlds apart in spirit. This is not a Spring Break resort, but rather, a well needed, relaxation and rejuvenation spot, very different from any vacation resort we have ever visited. Villa Rolandi has the ambiance of an intimate and yet sizeable inn.
We arrived at Cancun airport over an hour late, yet the driver that the hotel lined up for us was there and waiting for us, as was "The Cocoon" the hotel yacht. We were greeted by the most helpful and efficient Victor at the dock, where we were greeted with cooling face cloths and cooler mimosas. Checking in took mere moments, and we were escorted to our spacious, third floor junior suite.
Don't let the term "junior suite" fool you. We had a perfect view of the pool and ocean, a jacuzzi and breakfast spot on the terrace, a king sized bed under the bricked dome-like ceiling, stained glass windows over the patio door, AC and a ceiling fan, plenty of closet space, a sitting area with two sofas, and an extra large shower with four cross shower jets, two shower heads above, and a steam room jet. The surround sound music even played in the shower!
The beach, while small was beautiful, well kept and private. With only a limited number of guests, there was never a lack of beach chairs and umbrellas. The three pools were the same, plenty of chairs, plenty of personal space, and plenty of quiet. The beach/pool experience was only made better by the team of Sergio and Ariel. These two gentlemen attended to our every need be it food, drink or adjusting chairs and umbrellas. They anticipated what we might need even without ever being intrusive. Ariel even showed me a big blue crab that lives under the steps to the beach, pulling it out with his bare hands so I could get a photo!
The restaurant provided excellent (included) breakfasts either in our room or downstairs. I wish I had some of their French toast at home! The dinner menu was excellent and varied. We rarely ventured into town for a meal. The service was just as fabulous as the food. Even the poolside light lunches, salads, pizzas, and ceviches were above average.
Every employee of the hotel that we encountered treated us as if we were special. This is where the inn-like atmosphere was evident. If you are looking for a quiet, semi-private, excellent service type of hotel, with excellent food, this is the place! Thank you Villa Rolandi for a memorable vacation!!
