Intro After being in Playa Media Luna we moved to Chichi’s n Charlies. We had to choose this hotel, because we were very late booking, and wanted to stay near Playa Norte. All other hotels were booked. First impression The hotel looks terrible. Not clean. Old. Smelly. Everything is broken. Not organized. Old style paper book agenda, with some scratches.... More

We were four female friends in our 30's traveling on the lower end of a budget during our school break. Three of the four of us have been on Isla before and we had seen ChiChi's because it literally sits on the beach where the sun sets every night. It's quite a show. We booked the Economy Room which sits... More

For the value, there's no place better and we'll stay there every time. But it may not be for everyone. ( We stayed in a standard room on the first floor, not a suite) Here's what's great about Chi-Chis: 1. It's smack dab right on one of the best parts of Playa Norte. Walk out your door and your in...

I stayed next door, at Nautibeach, but frequented Chi Chi’s beach front bar almost every day for two weeks. I can’t speak for the main restaurant or hotel, but the beach bar was great! The drinks and food were very good, but it was the service that made it all great. Victor was the only person who waited on us.... More

Reserved back in November, requesting the suite, room #9 but they said it was booked. I then asked for room #8 & after confirming with the manager they confirmed it was available. I paid my deposit & got my confirmation coupon stating I had reserved room #8. I had some concerns whether this would go smoothly or not based on... More

I didn't enjoy my stay at Chi Chi and Charlies. This place is a bar/restaurant first and a hotel a distant second. The owner was nice at check in and check out but I didn't see him much other than that. The restaurant staff were not friendly. Even when it wasn't busy, they would be on their phones and completely... More

A wonderful beach. A beautiful ocean view. A great palapa bar with super friendly staff. Take some sun in a lounge chair by the water and sip on a cold beverage brought to you by a smiling waiter. What more could you ask for?

This was our fifth year to stay here. And this will be a two part review. PART ONE This year we spent 21 days here. I called Benito back in May to tell him when we needed a room. He said he put us in his book. When we got there Benito was on vacation, so I started to worry... More

Wow, been there in April, easy to bargain a room at 50$ a night right in front of the north beach. Had great time there at the beach, at the bar, in the room !!! Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortables. The service is A1 and friendly. If I ever return in Isla Mujeres I will be back to Charlies

My family of four, (my wife and two boys 6 and 15) stayed here March 6th-11th. We had a great time. The hotel is very laid back and easy going. The staff was great and our room was cleaned daily. The location is perfect, on the beach and close to the shops and restaurants. The bartender was also friendly. It... More
