We just returned from our second stay at the Mimi del Mar in the past five years. I would have to say that if I hadn't been there before, I may have been dissatisfied as the hotel is dated and continues to be in need of repair. However, we love the location next to Calle 4, the staff is wonderful... More

It's not fancy, but it's clean, and it's cute. Small kitchenette, with a fridge and safe in the room. Right on the beach and a block off the main drag. THE best location! The hotel staff is excellent, freindly and helpful. The food and drinks from the attached resturaunt are really good - great margaritas! But be aware- the waiters... More

Spend two weeks over Christmas and New Year at the hotel and the location was really great on the beach front. The staff was very friendly and helpful but do not expect them to speak very much English. The rooms are nothing special – very basic with bed and a small kitchenette that you really can use for much. A... More

This place is not the Ritz. However, it's a great value for the price. Expect a basic, but clean room with bed and kitchenette. The kitchenette had very basic equipment - coffee maker, a few frying pans and 2 plates / silverware sets in a single room (one queen bed). The cookware had seen better days, but it was enough...

We had two nights at this hotel. We chose it because we wanted some beach time and it was perfect for that with lots of beach chairs, umbrella, massage service and good drinks service. The rooms were a bit rough. I think our rooms hadn't been used for a while as there was a layer of grit over the floor... More

We were checking out hotels along the beach and found this one by chance. Great prices during the off season so we grabbed this hotel for a couple of nights. The rooms are nicely decorated, quaint and comfortable with a kitchenette stocked with the essentials. Nice little terrace that looked out over the beach and had a small table and... More

We literally stumbled upon this place as we were just checking out some local options. We drove from Cancun for the day and decided to spend the night in this quaint town. For only $700 pesos a night we figured what could we lose. Turns out this is a very clean place, great location and felt we got more than... More

Have stayed at Mimi del Mars hotel in Playa for over 10 years, next to Bad boys bar on the main beach just north of the Cozumel ferry dock. Great little hotel, with kitchenets, sink mini fridge and hot plates with all the kitchen stuff. Nice staff, massage tables on the beach, small breakfast, burger and beer cafe on site.... More
