The Xbulu-ha is located on a street paralel to the main Hidalgo strip where most restaurants and many other hotels can be found. Walking distance to the main strip is just a few minutes though, and it makes the location more quiet. A rocky beach, unsuitable for swimming, is located only 2 minutes from the hotel, and can be seen from any of the rooms at the front side. The nice Norte beach is about 10 minutes walking distance away. This is common to all hotels on isla mujeres apart from the few actually located at the beach though.
The deluxe rooms are very large, come with a king size bed, kitchenette etc. There is a coffee maker and microwave, which could be useful as no breakfast is available at the hotel (there are plenty of restaurants within minutes though). All rooms have aircon, a fan, a fridge and a TV. Wifi works throughout the hotel, including inside the rooms.
Bathrooms are fully functional, though hot water supply seems somehow limited, keeping your showers short. It appears to work with a boiler though, after 15 minutes or so it is back to full temperature.
The place is cleaned on a daily basis, including fresh towels and linnen. The staff is friendly and helpful, though sometimes hard to find: the reception is left unmanned for periods of time and you'll have to look for someone if you need anything. This brings a bit of a security risk too though, as the room keys are hanging visibly in the reception area and someone could grab one. The rooms come with a safe that is large enough to fit a tablet and/or a small laptop though - i'd suggest using it whenever you go out and leave the key at the reception (to avoid losing it at the beach etc).
