“Enjoyed my very short stay here - great hosts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I stayed at the Rancho for just one night before an early morning flight out of Cancun, and enjoyed the short stay a lot. At first I was a little surprised that the place was a little further away from town than I had expected, but taxis are cheap and quick. The distance is also walkable but we had some issues due to flooding! The beach right out front of the property is beautiful, and if a beach is important to you then this is the place to stay in PM. Another plus is the great host who creates such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere that you just want to stay longer. After she heard that we would both be leaving early in the morning to catch a flight and wouldn't be able to have breakfast, we were offered some fruit and bread rolls the night before. This is the first time anybody has offered me a "breakfast to-go" when I was leaving early, so I was impressed. The rooms where nice and of the regular funky beach style, and clean. We were there during a cold spell and the room came equipped with warm blankets, another sign for a well-run B&B and a thoughtful host. I would love to come back here and stay for longer.

I don't know what the reviewers who wrote Terrible or Poor reviews. If you want a Five Star resort, book a Five Star resort. This is a small, funky place that I am going back to again next week. I thought it was wonderful. I thought the owners and staff were great. The rooms are spare but clean, the breakfast and coffee were very good. It did take me about five minutes to find it the first time and some of the surrounding real estate is not photogenic but once you get there, it is an oasis and comfortable. It is about a 15 minute walk to the town square. The beach is pretty but rocky, so I would not swim there. We did have fun walking up the beach about a mile.

The Rancho is right on the beach and was the perfect way to unwind. at the beginning of our backpacking holiday.
The rooms are right on the beach and ours had an amazing view of the sea from the hammock on the balcony. The hanging beds are a novelty and take some getting used to but are very comfortable.
For us, the best part was the friendliness of the owners. They took time to show us around the property and explain everything. They helped us with directions and even booked us a hotel for the next leg of our journey.
Breakfast is self service and you are free to make your own orange juice and cook your own eggs. We also borrowed free bikes to get to town, which was a welcome extra.
The beach is pretty and very quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room at the front with views of the sea

Owners do a great job of helping you enjoy the area. Free WiFi in the common area, great Breakfast. Only complaint is the cost of Taxi rides (way to expensive). Buy stuff in town and store in fridge. Good swimming out front.

We stayed here for four nights and were happy to have found this place. It is a bit south of the centre of Puerto morelos, but still close enough to walk to the centre and restaurants within 15 min. You have to walk past a small industrial harbour area but it felt very safe. The rancho is right at the beach and you will have it almost for yourselves. The staff at rancho is very helpful and we liked the communal kitchen.
All in all we had a great relaxing stay.

Just returned from 4 nights at SAK OL, we were thrilled with the price, location, and service. We will definitely be going back! Also, if you are concerned with security, there is a gate with a gaurd on the way in, as it shares the area with some of the mega resorts of Pto. Morelos, but you get the calm privacy and homeyness that these resorts can't offer.
