Ranked #7 of 39 Isla Mujeres B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We spent a week on Isle and it was great. When checking out places to stay we stumbled on Jimbo and Karen place. I had email Jimbo and found out the the place was rented for our first 3 days, but was open for the last 4 days. Jimbo was great, he helped me find a condo to stay in for the first 3 days on north beach area and took care of booking it. He is a great resource for anything about Isle and emails you back, It gives you a great feeling of having a friend and resource on your travel.

After our 3 day stay at the condo Jimbo's son picked us up in his truck and delivered us to casa roca caribe. the place was great. It's located in the middle of Isle on the coast. A beautiful view of the ocean. We had a grocery store down the street, and several place to eat were close. Jimbo gave us the tour of the house, and showed the steps to get down to the ocean. We had a great time. When we had to leave Jimbo took us to the ferry in town.

If you need a place to stay this is it. If it is booked still use Jimbo as a reference to help you find a place.

Room Tip: we stayed on the lower level, it was great. the upper level had some great views

We took a gamble, and sent money ahead of time to secure our upstairs portion of the building without knowing anything about this location. When we arrived, Jimbo was a gracious host even though we arrived on the last ferry due to problems beyond our control. My wife and I (and our three boys, 9 year old twins and 11 year old son) were graciously welcomed and taken to our wonderful level of this great location at midnight. I would highly recommend Jimbo and Karen's Casa Roca Caribe! I have been traveling to Isla Mujeres since 1989, and have never felt as welcomed at any location in Isla Mujeres as I did here. I don't want to say much more, as I don't want to be bumped out of having the ability to rent this location, but I have to be honest as I have trusted "tripadvisor" in the past and will in the future. Keep another thing in mind...If Jimbo and Karen don't have room at Casa Roca Caribe available for your dates, they have many other rental locations that they know about, and can point you in the right direction. If you are going to Isla Mujeres for the first time, you are going to the greatest place in the Caribbean portion of Mexico. Have a great time!!!!

Your own private ocean views and breezes (shell hunting too) complete with swimming pool on one level and jacuzzi on the other, this central location allows for enjoying local neighborhood activities and excellent eateries (including the famous Mango Cafe) while still being close to both Playa Norte and the centro and Punta Sur. We rented the downstairs for five days and didn't want to leave. Jim is a wonderful host, helpful and nearby but not hovering, full of great tips on enjoying the whole island. Every day was a rewarding adventure whether we were walking, renting a golf cart to go further afield, such as to the Zama Beach resort, or taking an inexpensive cab to the centro with its beaches, great restaurants and shopping promenade on Hidalgo Street. Highly recommended for a real sense of island life.

Room Tip: Depending on your needs, ask Jim about availability of the upstairs or downstairs of the house, or t...

Found Casa Roca Caribe on Home Away website and it looked like everything I like in a travel destination and so I was really happy to find out that reality matched the website. Jimbo and Karen are lovely and as everyone has said and they provide wonderful concierge service. The house has a great lay out upstairs and down. we were there for ten days and originally were going to stay upstairs for 5 nights and then switch to downstairs but we loved the upstairs patio overlooking the street. Everynight we made salsa and cocktails and watched the sunset and chatted with people. One of the best things we loved about being mid island was being in a neighborhood and observing the daily lives of all of the people who lived there. And then the really best part were all of the bicycle vendors who honk and drive by with everything from pastries and breads to fruits and/or gas. Of course the setting iitself is fantastic and the crashing waves against the coral are very sleep inducing! Beaches are beautiful. Cabs are cheap and very plentiful...The food everywhere is excellent. I highly recommend a ceviche and tequila diet and of course I would love to go back ...

I echo all of the sentiments of the reviews prior to ours and they were part of the reason why we booked a weeks stay at Casa Roca Caribe. We were not disappointed! Enough can't be said about the value of the rental and how hard Jimbo works to make sure you have everything you need. Towels and water are replaced before you even have to ask, but unlike a hotel, someone is not knocking on your door first thing in the morning to do it! My favorite thing was being able to spend every morning enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio watching the rising sun and ending the day by watching the moon rise. Not to mention the sounds of the waves as you fell asleep each night! One thing to note is that because of the steady breeze over the ocean, we did not have any mosquitos!!
