“very nice hotel right in the heart of things!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

this is one terrific place to stay in Isla Mujeres. its literally surrounded by restaurants, shops, live music venues, etc.

the manager and staff are super friendly and extremely helpful and very accommodating.

the internet could use some help, but i think the manager may be working on that. it works very well in the lobby at least!

Room Tip: splurge and get a balcony room! its very relaxing to sit out there and people watch as hordes of to...

You can't beat the price or location. It's near everything which is both a pro and con. Hotel is outdated but for the price you really can't complain. Wasn't bothered by the "noise" of the streets. It ended at midnight and it was great to people watch. I would stay there for a weekend but would upgrade to a nicer hotel if staying longer. My only complaint were the ants, dust, spotty WIFI and lack of microwave.

Room Tip: Pay for bicycle transport and they will take luggage up to room (no elevator). Ask for a room with...

If you're planning on staying on the island, and not looking for a glamorous or pricey experience, this hotel is perfect. It sits in the center of the island, in the northern end. The center street that runs below the hotel offers a variety of restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Most nights, starting at 9pm a dance group performs along the stream with large drums. The hotel is cozy, offering somewhat small single rooms, but fairly large doubles. Once we saw the single we had booked we were able to pay the difference for the double, it was worth it. Internet is free, and the staff is very flexible and kind. Breakfast includes toast, cereal, plate of fruit, spreads, milk, juice. Ac, hot water. Overall a great experience.

Excellent location as their are loads of restaurants on the same street, although it can be somewhat noisy in the evenings but nothing too late, and the beach is just a 3 minute walk. The room was clean with good air-con and a decent fridge. There is everything you need nearby and it is great value for money.

You can't beat this place for location and value. It's located right in the heart of the village, and the rates are very reasonable. However, the room we booked, although advertised as a "suite," was simply a tiny room with two double beds and a tiny kitchenette. In fact, it was so small that it was difficult to walk around the beds to get to the bathroom or kitchen area. The beds filed ip practically all of the floor space. For four people (two parents and two teens), it was really not suitable. On the other hand, we had air conditioning and wifi. And, really, when you're on Isla, you don't spend a whole lot of time in your hotel room. So, this place certainly didn't ruin our trip or anything. But it was not quite as advertised. And, if we'd had bad weather and spent a lot of time indoors, the room's tinyness might have led to family dysfunction. ;)

We have been staying at Bucaneros for the past ten years and keep coming back for many reasons. The location is perfect - the beach is a short walk, you are close to tons of restaurants, close to the zocalo and supermarket, as well as the ferry and taxis to discover the island. The hotel is clean and there are many options for the size of the room you need, additionally it is a fantastic deal. More than all of that we stay as over the years we have gotten to know the family and staff and it really feels like a second home. Isla Mujeres is a very special place with some of the most amazing people in the world. I will be the first to say it isn't for everyone, but for the lucky ones Isla is a place where each visit back you feel like you never left. We look forward to our next trip!
