The location is perfect. 5 minutes to the ferry and the centre of Isla Mujeres is around the corner. Balcony with a nice breeze and seaviews. Nice pool. Rooms differ somewhat. We had 2 rooms, one with a somewhat old airco, the other one with a new airco. I think it could be pretty perfect if they put some extra effort in maintenance, modernisation and orhanising breakfast. We had an agreeable and convenient stay. NB A very good place for breakast is located 50 m away, on the corner.
We were looking for budget accommodation within walking distance to North Beach with a sea view and booked Rocamar. It was absolutely perfect for what we wanted and has stunning view of ocean from your bed. Five mins walk to the bars and restaurants and 10 mins to the beach, yet completely silent at night. Spacious room, super comfy beds and great aircon and shower. Rooms cleaned daily. We didn't use the pool so can't comment on this but looked nice too. We were on the top floor as requested and no WiFi in the room but step out of the door and you can pick it up there. Would definitely return and can't fault it for the price.
Rooms are basic but OK given the price. Bed, aircon and shower were fine. Location is great, close to things but silent, a unique combination that I didn’t find anywhere else on this island. Staff is quite uninterested and rude, so if that is a big factor for you I recommend going elsewhere.
We stayed here in February in the Beach House with another couple. You have your own building with a patio and raised terrace for watching the sunrise. The beach house looks remodeled and it was very nice for each bedroom to have their own bathroom. We didn't have any hot water the first day but notified the staff and they promptly fixed it. It was nice to have a kitchen to have a snack or heat up leftovers and with the Super Akai a block away we stocked the fridge with beer and water. The pool is in disrepair and some of the lighting could use a facelift. But, being right on the Malecon steps away from the Carribbean Sea, you can't beat the location. And the Tiny Gecko is 300 feet away for drinks. I would definitely stay here again.
Spacious rooms and friendly staff. The housekeepers went above and beyond to make the stay great. And you simply can't beat the view!! The attached pic is from our balcony (that's the railing at the bottom of the pic). We come to Isla every year and we would certainly stay here again.
The location, view and really cute rooms got it a 3 star but I’ve seen a lot of recommendations on TripAdvisor telling solo female travelers to come here and I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for those. I simply didn’t feel safe during my stay. As I’m a solo female traveler myself, I always request a higher floor when I travel. This hotel in particular made you pay extra for non ground floor rooms. Perfect, right? Wrong! To my dismay, I was placed in a room that I would absolutely consider ground floor. The staff however said the “basement” rooms are what’s considered ground floor and wouldn’t switch my room to a higher one. As I feared, passer bys could see my room from the sidewalk. Anyone could easily climb that balcony. Safety is a big priority for me so I cut my stay short and moved hotels after only 2 nights.…
We stayed 5 days in this very nice hotel located in city center just 10 minutes walk from Playa Norte. Great sea view, clean rooms with friendly staff. Fair price for value you get. Many restaurants around and gricery store. Street food available next to the church. We will be back one day.
Amazing Hotel for the price!! We stayed here for 4 nights last week. It was only $56 per night and was more than worth it. The room was very clean, water pressure was very good, bed was comfortable and had the most amazing sunrises!!! Pool was very nice too. The property is about a 5 min walk to the beach, grocery store and numerous restaurants. About a 10 to 15 min walk to Playa Norte. Also, on 2 or 3 blocks from the Ferry Terminal...straight wall right from the Ferry entrance.
What I mean by the title of this review is on first appearance the room looks a little old and/or run down but the hotel really grew on my girlfriend and I. So it could use some room darkening curtains and the shower could have a lot better water pressure but once you get over the small things you realize what a bargain this hotel really is. You have a million dollar view, it is about 3 blocks walking a straight shot right off the ferry, you are about a block from the main entertainment/food area Hidalgo street. In our opinion all that makes it 5 stars! Oh there’s a very nice kitty on the grounds as well that we fed during our stay.
Great view, and easy walk to downtown/ferry. We rented a golf cart, and they had a nice gated area to park it overnight. Pool was too cold in December, but the view was outstanding. We went to beach club on North Beach during the day to enjoy the beautiful water.
