We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years, and always thought it was one of the best places to eat on the island and is a great setting on the water However, we all felt that this meal was almost inedible and really overpriced. Although the salad was fresh and the drinks were great, the fish was dry and the vegetables and French fries were so greasy we couldn’t eat them. The shrimp cocktail was priced at $20 US. Based on the photo in the menu we thought it would be worth it but there were almost no shrimp it in it. This ended up being one of our most expensive and only disappointing meal we had on the trip. We won’t be back.

It is the right choice for visitors looking for a combination of charm, peace and tranquility, and a convenient position from which to explore Isla Mujeres. It is a small and comfortable hotel. It offers an attentive and personalized service and is always available to offer assistance to guests. There is also a splendid terrace where, from the morning onwards, you can relax and immerse yourself in the atmosphere, watching the beach traveling through the water and the people. highly recommended!

Our family really enjoyed our stay here. Thank you Ana as well! So quiet w/ own clean beach where you can snorkel (even cat sharks and we saw a sting ray as well), canoe and paddle board for free. Restaurant accompnied with sunrise and sunset is a true priviledge. For the management: Continental breakfast is very limited to toasts, one glass of orange juice and coffee. Nothing for kids as well. And it takes more than 45min from kitchen to fry some eggs or bring two spoons of yogurt. Dinner is prepared with more speed than breakfast? Rooms were a bit out of shape and needs improvement. Fortunately we got another room and hot water. Wifi is lagging all the time, so do not work just relax... Do not come here if you looking for special service or luxury life. Relaxed athmosphere is quaranteed 👍🏼

There are many things to like about Marian's Kan Kin. The property is beautiful with a private beach and dock. It's quiet and peaceful. The rooms are basic but quite comfortable with great air conditioning. You get two bottles of water in a mini fridge each day which was helpful. Yes, the bedding is simple, but I was impressed that when I had obviously used a cushion from the couch as an extra pillow for reading in bed, the next morning two extra bed pillows were there without my asking. The wif-fi is spotty at best. The pictures of the rooms and property are accurate. The property is very small and rustic, and the beach really is private. I liked the little pool with its view out to the ocean. Unfortunately, and obviously not the fault of the hotel, the water was too rough and stirred up for us to do any snorkeling or much swimming off the beach the week we were there. They have free kayaks and paddle boards, but we couldn't take advantage of them. Maria's Kan Kin is a little difficult to have as a base for a vacation, however. It's too far to walk to any place other than the Kin Ha restaurant. The front desk tries but is somewhat limited in their ability to help with some things, partly because there wasn't always someone there who could speak English and our rudimentary Spanish wasn't quite enough. (A suggestion would be to have a map and a FAQ page printed out for English speakers to read no matter who is in the office.) That and the spotty wif-fi made it difficult to plan our activities or look for restaurants or places to go. They were, however, always able to call us a cab. The restaurant is pretty basic. It's got a fabulous view, but it is outside and we couldn't take the mosquitoes after a while. Bring bug spray! And the continental breakfast that comes with the room really isn't a continental breakfast. It's simply toast and jam, extremely strong coffee, and orange juice. Again, a suggestion for the hotel is simply to make this clear, "Coffee and toast offered in the morning along with an al la carte menu." There is a breakfast menu you can order from (but not before 8:30!). Maria's Kan Kin is a definite consideration if you wish to stay away from the crowds of North Beach, just know that it's not a luxury stay and will involve a bit of extra effort.

I made a reservation for Maria’s from January 2 until January 4. Unfortunately, we only stayed there one night because of the terrible conditions of the hotel upon arriving. The hotel manager, ANA, was very rude to us, and not at all helpful. We got locked out of our room and bathroom because of the terrible condition of the door locks and keys that were provided. We were offered no help and then when we got back into our room, we were told to not lock the door and we would be fine. Not lock my doors? I don’t think so! They refused to give us a new key upon awakening, and when we asked what time breakfast ended she was super rude. While walking on the beach our first night we saw several coconuts on the ground. We picked up two and took them to our room thinking they were available free of charge. Even though we didn’t open the coconuts or damage them in anyway, she wanted to try to charge us $50 for the coconuts we allegedly stole she also accused us of damaging the floors and of making loud noises throughout the night which caused our supposed neighbors to leave the hotel. When we called the manager out on her BS and lies, she began to get even ruder to me and my girlfriend when I told her I was going to call booking.com and notify them. As I was in my room trying to contact booking.com, they informed me she had already called them and wanted to let them know that we needed to leave the hotel immediately, and will not be getting a refund for the second night stay. When we went back down to the office to speak with her, we remained courteous and calm and tried to work with her. She refused to negotiate or give us a refund for a second night, then made up some charges that we damaged the sheets and bedding which is completely false and stated it would be the same cost as our second night to replace the sheet. She couldn’t ever give us proof of this alleged damage to the sheet. The entire bedding was maybe worth $20, it was so cheap. Over $250 is what she wanted to replace the sheet. What a SCAM! She totally planned to screw us as soon as she got her payment she asked for that morning. Let me just also say this is the worst bed that I’ve ever slept on in my life. It is a concrete block with a cot mattress laid on top of it with worn out spring coil’s. Terrible! I have herniated disc problems that are controlled through pain management and physical therapy, and after that night I could not walk straight for the remainder of the trip, or stand up without being in pain. But wait, it gets better! As I’m calling my credit card company and booking.com to notify of this nightmare that we’re dealing with, we get a knock on our door which happens to be the Mexican state police holding MACHINE GUNS! They instructed us that we needed to leave and barely gave us time to throw our things in our bags. Never in my life have I ever been so in fear of my life! This caused detrimental stress and anxiety the rest of my trip. Ive traveled a lot through Mexico, and I’ve never had anything come close to this experience. Don’t stay here!
