I stayed at this hotel as part of a package deal with Expedia. It has it advantages and disadvantages. Advantages- Hotel del Sol is not very expensive. I think on hotel sites it runs between $35-50 USA per night. Fast check in. Located across from one of the ferry terminals and UltraMar is about two blocks down to the right.... More

We're traveling overland for more than a month around the Yucatan so we can't afford any of the major resorts in the Zona Hotelera. We found this place online with a cheap deal at Despegar.com for $28/night. We were initially hesitant given some of the negative reviews online. So, we pulled up surprised to find it only a 10-minute drive... More

The hotel is clean and staff are very friendly. Nice hotel for the price and just opposite to the ferry. You can take ferry from here to Isle of Mujers. Good for a short stay did not use the restaurant

This was the perfect place for us to stay overnight before spending two weeks on Isla Mujeres. The staff friendly, our room was clean, great water pressure, and the outside deck on the roof was perfect to start our morning with our coffee. We will be back. Thank you to all the staff. Adios for now.

We stayed here because it seemed to have decent reviews, and we didn't want somewhere too close to the hotel zone... Massive fail on our part.. The hotel was conveniently located across the road from a ferry terminal which is good if you want to go across to isla mujeres.. But that is the only thing it is convenient for!!... More

Stayed 2 nights before heading to our 7 day timeshare. Literally directly opposite of the ferry to Isla Mujeres, which is 6 USD/pp round trip. 15 minute ferry ride to a beautiful island. The hotel is clean, quiet, and super nice staff. Breakfast was simple, delicious, and cooked/served by the same individual. The area is safe, and outside the crazy... More

Great little place, which is phenomenally good value for money. I stayed here in Jan 2014 while queueing up travel plans to head south. The staff are incredibly friendly, you can't beat the rate of $35/night, and it's extremely clean. I used the reservation service on the hotel's website, expecting no-one to even know i was there. Lo and behold,... More

we chose this hotel mainly for 2 reasons, the location and the price. We were trying to find a nice place to fit our budget and also be close to the ferry port to reach the isla mujares. When we arrived there was quite a bit of rain unfortunately and due to the open fronted walkway to reach our room... More
