As others have indicated, this place is clean and modern, well kept, and runs efficiently. The A/C was a godsend to drown out the yapping of dogs in the night, and roosters in the morn. The guys at the desk, young and old, are as handsome and helpful as the Mexican days are long. I was embarrassed to climb into... More

At the Posada el Moro the rooms are cheerful and very clean, things work and the location is convenient. If anything needs repair, it gets prompt attention from the friendly staff. Miguel, the gracious manager, bends over backwards to accommodate his guests. And we love the exotic garden with its beautiful flowers and trees. We have stayed at the Posada... More

We LOVED this hotel. Great room, good service and great location. We had a room on the third floor, with kitchenette - witch we didn't use because the restaurants in Puerto are so amazing to go to eat and not expensive (try the Argentine restaurant near the church and the Uruguay one near the artisan market). Go to the terrasse... More

From the multiple cultures and fiestas of Merida to the beaches and bungalows of Puerto Morelos, we love the Yuctan and its people and have stayed many places across the pennisula. The Posada el Moro is a clean, quaint, nicely located Puerto Morelos property. We stayed there twice during the course of our most recent two week tour of the... More

Perfect location in town only a blck from the beach. Nice and cean with friendly staff. I really hate the rooster that wakes you at 5:30 and the shower sucks but it was a great place besides those two minor details.

Travelling in Belize, we had to return to Cancun for the return flight to Gatwick. American friends in San Ignacio reccomended this hotel and actually reserved a room for us via the internet. We were a little disappointed with the small room we were initially offered, so Manuel found us a much better one with balcony seating and quiet. We... More

Actually this is a nice location, very very clean with spacious rooms. We are here now. My issues are we have asked for an extra chair for our balcony 4 times. There are only 3 chairs by the pool. Neither is a big deal. BUT....they are moving the restaurant as we speak directly above our room. I asked about moving... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. It's easily found and is only 20 minutes drive from the airport which is why we stayed here to recover from our flight before beginning a 3 week driving tour of Yucatan. It is a lovely colourful spot with spacious and clean rooms - a relaxed introduction to Mexico. All staff were... More
