Interview with the General Manager of Villa Rolandi, Isla Mujeres
What is unique about your hotel's location?

Villa Rolandi is located in the middle zone of Isla Mujeres, overlooking the impressive Mexican Caribbean Sea and the breathtaking views of Cancun. Located barely five minutes away from downtown Isla Mujeres and 20 minutes across from mainland. The hotel lies in a privileged location between the beach with its powder-like white sand and the exuberant Lagoon Makax surrounded by a tropical forest of mangroves.

What authentic local experiences will guests have access to?

There are plenty of activities on the island; experienced hikers can literally cover the island on foot. Though, there is always the choice to rent mopeds, bicycles or take a cab. Water activities include swimming with the dolphins, snorkel and dive trips to the beautiful world wide known reefs, deep sea fishing, boat trips to the main beaches of the island, access to hobie cats and kayaks.

The island's small town square acts like a hub of diverse activities, it is a popular meeting place surrounded by shops and restaurants, the town's shops offer local handicrafts, clothing, and jewelry stores with their own on site work-shops. But more than anything this is the perfect place to have a break, relax and loose track of time! I recommend to hire a buggy to explore the island. Then, take Cocoon yacht to Cancun for a game of golf at Pot Ta Pok golf course. Swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery or go on a whale watching excursion.

What are some amazing things that your Concierge can arrange?

Water sports reservations such as kayaking, private diving, snorkeling or deep-sea fishing, A romantic cruise sailing the Caribbean at sunset, complemented by a romantic candle diner by the beach.

Arrange a day out golfing including private yacht services and lunch reservations in a gourmet restaurant in Cancun.

Coordinate private day trips to the mayor Mayan Ruins (Tulum , Coba or ChichenItza) with personalized itineraries including stops in nearby sites of interest.

Fantastic experiences swimming with dolphins swim with whale sharks or visiting Contoy Island (bird sanctuary)
