“for the architecture, its fantastic”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

this place is rather unusual as far as hotels go. i would describe it as an eco retreat. The experience is so relaxing. i went on honeymoon and have never felt so "disconnected" in the best possible way. no tv, no radio, real peace and quit. enjoy the people you are with, sit on a hammock (but not in the noisy, manufactured experience you find at other hotels), listen to birds, feel a warm breeze. This isn't on the water, and doesn't give an island vibe in the normal sense, but really was a spectacular experience. I will never regret this experience. We stayed in Casa rodonda, in the large room. loved the breakfast, again- making your own food from the wonderful goodies they left is not the typical hotel experience, but was exactly what we were seeking. highly recommend!! also, we stayed in dec 2010 but i can't enter that date below. The service staff is totally hidden and out of the way... thats the experience you get here. But you have everything you need. if you want to be waited on, pampered and have luxurious traditional high end hotel experiences with high tech gadgetry, i'm sure this is NOT the place for you. but if you want an off the beaten track experience, and to really be part of a natural environment in a way we often aren't you will enjoy this.

Room Tip: all rooms are different. we stayed at casa rodondo in the large room. i doubt there is a bad room...

My husband and I stayed here after staying at EvaMer for a couple nights ( which we also loved). Hix is definitely worth checking out, so unique and beautiful. And the daily fresh fruits, bread, stocked kitchen and yoga were added bonuses. Had a great stay, but wouldn't recommend it to people who would be turned off by lizards and bugs in the room. It wasn't dirty but open air doors and windows tend to let in lots of creatures. Also, I was surprised by how much privacy we had with all this open space.

This place is incredible. The minimalism, the design and comfort are top notch. Bob, Joanne and the owners - all so helpful and nice but equally as respectful of your privacy. The property is both beautiful and inspiring. And the products they sell or services they recommend all were of the same quality. It's not a place for everyone but if you are intrigued, you won't be sorry! Super romantic.

Room Tip: It's worth getting the top units for the views.

Hix Island House is more than a hotel stay, it is an experience- the freshly stocked kitchen each morning, serene pool, outdoor shower and indoor/outdoor living concept which allows you to watch the sunset from bed and look at the stars from the sitting area make this hotel in a class of its own. It has an extremely beatiful and peaceful setting. The staff of this hotel is excellent and work to ensure that you have a wonderful experience. I'm already thinking about when I can get back to this fantastic place!

Room Tip: Rent a car or make sure to get numbers of publicos upon arrival, there is nothing within walking dis...

My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Hix Island House. We stayed in Loft 7 (top floor of Retangular) and could not have asked for a better experience. We loved the architecture, the freedom of indoor/outdoor living, the sounds and sites from our loft in all directions and being able to lay out on our deck and look up at the stars at night, just a few feet from our bed. Part of the architecture is designed for "getting away from it all" and having a very different experience that life in the big city. This is exactly the experience we wanted and received.

Hix Island House is not for everyone - it is very private, and there's no pampering (there's a new W hotel on the island for that), no tv, phones, etc. (although cell phones/blackberry's work perfectly). We enjoyed making our own breakfast from the fresh bread, eggs, etc provided each morning and taking a dip in the pool. We didn't take part in the yoga each morning, but it looked inviting for all levels. We felt safe and had enough access to hotel staff during the day hours if needed.

We'd recommend getting your own jeep or four wheel drive to check out beaches all over the island or to be able to go to town for dinner, etc.

Room Tip: Top levels of the buildings have better views!
