Casita de Maya is very close to the airport which makes it close to everything in town. The airport is very small and there are few daily flights so airport noise isn't an issue. Dan the owner and the property manager Daniel were great, they took a lot of care to make sure we had a nice stay.

There were a couple of unexpected but nice touches: They buy 5 gallon bottles of purified water and make it available in the lobby so you can just refill you own bottle. That was a nice change after throwing away dozens of empty plastic bottles during the previous week staying in Merida. They have a Voice Over IP phone in the lobby so you can call the U.S. for free. They also use rechargeable batteries in the remotes which helps cut down on waste.

The location as found on Google Maps wasn't right, so here are the coordinates: N20 30.578 W86 55.891

I hate to just repeat all the glowing remarks of everyone else, so I thought I'd write a few tips for staying at Casita de Maya.

I didn't know there was a fridge and microwave. (I'm sure someone mentioned it, but I didn't take note.) So you can make simple meals yourself. They have two plates and we bought a couple of plastic tumblers (I feared dropping the glass ones on the tile floor.) Bring silverware and a roll of paper towels and you'll be set. (A small tupperware and miniature ice cube tray might be handy, too.)

I wished I'd brought my slippers. The tile floor (spotless, by the way) is cool even in the heat.

We recommend having Daniel (the manager? don't know his title) make you a few meals during your stay (which won't be long enough.) It is so fun to see him zip off on his motorbike to go whip up your food. The food is good and his company can't be beat. He really is a wonderful, gracious guy. And he makes rock-solid coffee in the morning. We could smell it from our room. Great way to wake up.
(...and makes sure to have one of Daniel's margaritas. Top notch.)

Dan the owner provides drinking water in the courtyard. This is so nice and saved us wasting a zillion plastic water bottles. So simple and so appreciated.

There is a VOiP phone in the courtyard you can use anytime to call the states. The cost is included in your stay. (See why this place is so cool?)

In the morning and evening there can be mosquitoes in the courtyard. Daniel keeps a spray can of OFF at the bar. You're free to use it.

If you don't own any, rent your snorkel gear from Dan. It's only $5 a day. We loved having it handy when we were driving around. If you see something interesting, just pull of the road and you're ready to go. He also had coolers you could use for picnics, but we brought our own soft-sided one.

Dan was in the process of building a roof top bar. It's coming along. I hope to get to see it when it's finished.

The place is the most social guest house we've ever encountered. Everyone was friendly and chatty (but not too chatty :) and we ended up going out with folks a couple of times. Jump right in and introduce yourself.

I'm jealous of anyone reading this preparing for their next trip. Have a great time.

Our stay at Casita de Maya was the most wonderful hotel experience we have ever had…period. Over the years, we have stayed at dozens of luxury resorts, but none even come close to comparing to the intimate, personalized service we experienced during our stay. Initially we were a little hesitant booking a hotel so close to the airport and that was not directly on the beach, but what we found from our week long stay was that being away from the tourist filled all-inclusive resorts and hotels allowed us to truly experience Cozumel. Dan, the owner, attended personally to our every need. Whether it was walking with us to show us where the closest ATM was located, recommending and arranging excursions for our family, or educating us on the local language and customs, Dan was always available and eager to help us in any way we needed. Daniel, the Chef and property manager, was equally attentive to our every need. Daniel met with us each day to determine what, if anything, we wanted him to prepare for us that day. Of course we took advantage of his expertise and cooking talents and as a result enjoyed the most amazing, authentic Yucatan dishes. Fresh fruits in morning, pork taco’s at lunch, and freshly caught snapper and garlic shrimp at dinner… it was all amazing.

Dan and Daniel went out of their way to make us feel like a part of the family. For example, Daniel generously had our family and the other hotel guest over to his home to celebrate a traditional Christmas Eve with his family and friends! We will never forget the kindness Daniel and his wife and children showed us as we danced the night away, celebrating with food and drinks, while watching my daughter and the other children break open the Christmas piñata that hung in the street.

If you just want to see the sites in Cozumel, you can stay anywhere. If you want to actually experience Cozumel, you MUST stay at Casita de Maya. We can’t wait to come back!

This hotel is very close to the airport. Close enough to walk. When we arrived Dan took us to the rental car place which is right next door. After we got our rental car Dan took us around town, helped us at the gas station, and showed us the great restaurants.

In the mornings an excellent breakfast was made for us by a retired chef. A very friendly guy.

In all, a very pleasant experience!

If you are looking for a more authentic Mexican experience in an intimate boutique hotel setting then Casita de Maya is the place for you. The service and attention to detail is impeccable. The best part of the stay was the fabulous Mexican cuisine cooked up by Chef Daniel - the Garlic Shrimp was the best dish we had in 2 weeks of traveling the Yucatan. Thanks, enjoy your stay!

Room tip: The Ocean Room has the most privacy, we loved it ~
