We spent 4 nights in Las Palmas in August and loved it. It is a very peaceful relaxing place and Kate is a wonderful hostess. She really helps you to get the most from you stay on the island without putting you under any pressure to follow her advice. We took golf carts around the island one day and went swimming with the whale sharks on another (sea sickness medication highly recommended!) and just chilled out on the beach on the last day. The location of the hotel is fabulous and you are two minutes walk from restaurants and five minutes walk to the beach. I recommend Cafe Mogagua for a nice breakfast and the restaurants along by the pier for a nice inexpensize dinner. Everytime you return to the hotel Kate is eager to hear what you were up to and help out in anyway you can. You often end up mingling with other guests which is something we don't usually do but I really enjoyed. The roof top is the perfect place to chill out with a beer as there is music from a little place up the street and the atmosphere is just lovely. I could spend a lot of time in Hotel Las Palmas...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Las Palmas is your home away from home on Isla Mujeres, tucked away from the hustle-bustle of Cancun. We are a family run hotel (three generations of women, mother-daughter and grand-daughter). Naturally, our place is a very unpretentious accommodation with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We have many comfy communal areas, including a rooftop with a plunge pool. You'll find lounge chairs, hammocks, and tables with chairs to welcome you after a day at the beach - possibly an afternoon siesta. Our communal kitchen is also on the terrace and fully equipped. Our shaded deck on our second level, overlooking the street and is a great spot for people watching or reading a good book.We are located in the heart of the downtown. The beautiful turquoise of the Caribbean and powdery sand beach at Playa Norte are a block away (5 min walk). Just around the corner is Hidalgo Avenue, filled with cuisine from all over the world, live music, and friendly locals and tourists alike. We're directly across from the municipal market with four "loncheria" eating stalls, housing tasty, economical breakfast-lunch meals, as well as fresh squeezed juices.We have a hotel dog, Cachito (hypoallergenic, rasta-hair poodle) who is always ready for a stroll. ... more less
