“I love Mal and Sally they make The Soggy Peso what is GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2010

I've heard about The Soggy Peso from a friend. It was everything she said it was and more.
The room was so comfortable and beautiful. Mal and Sally made me feel right at home.
I can't wait to return with my husband and stay for the Sunday Baby Back Ribs!
Thank you for making a stranger feel like one of you family.

My wife and I spent six nights at Soggy Peso beginning on May 1. On a previous trip, we had frequented the bar, so we knew what to expect and it did not disappoint. Sally and Mal are great hosts. They are as hands on or hands off as you want. The room is very comfortable with a king bed, well decorated, has good a/c, and comes with a mini-frig. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi that works well. Just outside your door is a pool and the palapa bar is about 15 yards from your door. Don't worry about the noise, because the bar closes around 8:30pm each night so that it does not disturb the guests. The bar serves excellent food with a special every day such as shrimp tacos, wings, or cheeseburgers. However, you cannot miss the Sunday BBQ and Mal's baby-back ribs; fall off the bone good. Freddie and Yo-Yo are great guys and provide top notch service at the bar and make sure everyone is having a fun time. You'll encounter some interesting conversations with all the patrons coming and going. The Soggy Peso is located close to the marina, right on the water, so you see some boats passing by and also a great sunset. It is only about a 15 minute walk into town or a 30 peso cab ride. There is an adults only (at least 21) policy which suited us just fine. We definitely plan on a return trip to the Soggy Peso soon.

My wife and I along with two other couples stayed this past week at the Soggy Peso and couldn't have had a better time! If you're looking for a big resort with all the typical tourist trap pitfalls then Soggy Peso isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a great place to kick back, relax, have wonderful gracious hosts with a top notch bar and staff, then head to the Soggy Peso. No need to spend a fortune to have a great time. The rooms are very nice, clean and Mal and Sally along with Freddy and the bar staff go out of their way to make your stay carefree. They love to sit around the bar and share their stories about life on the island and what it means to be on "island time". The Sunday ribfest is wonderful and everything is prepared from scratch, with generous portions of tender ribs. Get there early, enjoy a cocktail or two while the staff prepares your meal and get ready to be entertained! Our only regret is that we had to come home!

Once again we decided that we had to make a trip back over to the Soggy Peso on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres, MX.
We found this treasure of a hotel and palapa bar to be way more fun than we ever imagined last year and just could not wait to get back again this year!
The atmosphere and staff were warm and welcoming and made us laugh.
The rooms are so comfortable and the BBQ even better than it was last year!
Keep it up Mal & Sally you have a one of a kind spot!

Where can you go where you can walk out of your room and be 7 feet from your own bar and restaurant. The bar is so quaint that everyone sitting around the bar all talk to each other and you get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Some people might say why would you want to stay that close to a bar and restaurant. Well if you know the island just about everywhere you stay is right there next to a bar and restaurant. But at soggy peso. It opens at noon and closes at 8pm. So if you feel like partying later you can go into town. Or if you feel like calling it a night its quiet by 8. I have never stayed anywhere where the staff was so friendly and attentive. The staff actually became our friends. From the moment we arrived we were greeted and served welcoming margaritas. And from that very first time we were always greeted by our first names. My favorite specials were Sunday's ribs, Wednesday hot wings and Tuesdays shrimp tacos. There is a little private beach just behind the bar where you can watch the boats come in and out and watch the beautiful sun set.. I would recommend this bed and cocktails to anyone.

The Soggy Peso was the most fun I've had in a long time, all because of its owners, Mal & Sally and their fabulous staff - themselves a lot of fun while managing to be attentive & polite. The down home Texas humor and good will was only excelled by the uproarious banter of the hosts. Add to that the great food, good ole' Texas BBQ, and you have a fun filled evening I am very glad I didn't miss. These hosts made everyone feel completely at ease, interacting with us all and just plainly having fun, fun, fun. Who knew you could roll all this into one experience? You must not miss this one!

Mal & Sally: Thank you for an evening I wouldn't have missed for the world, the delicious BBQ, your generosity and hospitality enhanced the beauty of Isla Mujeres for me.
