You have to remember that Playa del Carmen has a special vibe that deserves to be enjoyed at the most, that's why you need convenient lodging that allows you to do so. Posada Mariposa is incredible! All the lay-out and decor are super cute! Although you are right there in the middle of this charming zone full of restaurants, bars... More

I saw where some folks complained about the water temperatures in the shower, the noise levels, etc. I must have gone at just the right time because I had NONE of those problems. My room was on the ground floor, and except for one morning where it was obvious that workers at a building nearby were doing their jobs, I... More

Great hotel, got a great deal with Groupon and the hotel was more than what we expected. Nice, clean rooms, rustic feeling, great location, and the staff was AMAZING! Adolpho and Irais at the front desk helped us find restaurants that cost half of what you would pay on 5th avenue, a local grocery store to get some fresh fruit,... More

Cute, unique, inviting and comfortable. This hotel was a surprise. The hotel staff was so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to ensure your stay was pleasant. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to dive the waters of Playa del Carmen! One draw back: they only have one key per room. Makes separating and... More

This is a nice hotel in Playa del Carmen. The staff is very friendly, and the common areas are pleasant. Our reservation included a petite breakfast in a nearby restaurant (La Vagabunda). When we arrived, they offered us an upgrade: a bigger room with a kitchenette without extra cost! The room was great, very spacious, A/C and sun light; however,... More

We just finished 7 great days at the Mariposa. A person couldn't ask for a better experience. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location on 5th Avenue. After spending 6 months traveling around Mexico a great way to finish off our holiday before returning home.

When I book travel one of the first things I have to consider is value...it ranks right there with quality. That said The Posada provided BOTH. A clean and comfortable room and absolutely personable and helpful staff. You can opt for a American breakfast and use the voucher provided to eat at the La Vagabunda restaurant directly acoss 5th Ave... More

Our 1st hotel in Playa was bad, so we change it to Posada Mariposa. I loved it! Extremely nice staff (Adolfo, Claudia:)))), clean and fresh rooms, safe box, hot water, hairdryer, comfortable beds, perfect wi-fi even on the 3d floor (I had to work distantly). Well, they have all you need+discount for Mamita's beach (5-10 min walk), good breakfast in... More
