If you are looking for the luxury and amenities of an All inclusive then Rocamar may not be for you, but if you want an absolutely stunning view of the Caribbean from your own private balcony which includes a very comfortable hammock, super clean room with a comfortable bed located just minutes from all the shops and restaurants of Centro, but far enough away to escape the hustle and bustle, then Rocamar should be high on your list of places to stay. I have stayed at Rocamar many times and it has always been exactly what I want.

Well, i am not sure if it is a really, hotel.. I would rather say its a Unit Rent.. The same guy that was fixing something in one room, basicaly gave us the key to the room. The view is amazing. It realy is.. The furniture in the rooms is old, and some thing are hit by corrosian.. The pool is smaller but water is clean and refreshing... The ocean is a bit noisy, so be prepared, but when closing the balcony doors, you will barelly hear it. So view is nice but dont expect anything superb... And the water in tge bathroom runs reaaallyyy sloowly, and for 3 days i dont know how to turn on the hot water... Even i try both swithers it was still the same temoerature.,.

For the price, and location, you can't go wrong. Super clean rooms, right on the water. The ac wasn't working properly this trip. They quickly offered to change rooms. The staff is great. Always beach towels at your disposal. My favorite little place

We've been to Isla many times and have stayed in a number of different hotels and B&Bs. This was our first time at the Rocamar. We stayed in a corner room on the second floor. The hotel is literally just a few feet from the waters edge, and there is an AWESOME view of the Caribbean sea from the balcony and even from inside the room (the sea facing wall is floor to ceiling windows!). The bathroom has glass walls - so you can even enjoy the gorgeous view from the shower (there are curtains you can draw if you need some privacy) The room was very clean, the hotel lobby (open air) was spotless, The lobby has a coffee maker and fixings, microwave, TV and comfortable sofa and chairs. In the room was a TV, air conditioner and refrigerator. We found the staff was very friendly and professional. They were attentive and happy to accomodate with extra towels for the pool or beach, ice or whatever we needed. The website says free wi-fi in the lobby but actually there is free wi-fi IN THE ROOMS!! That was a real bonus! One day the wi-fi wasn't working. We let the staff know and they had it fixed in a few moments, they even checked back with us later to make sure it was still ok.
The location of the hotel is perfect - a short walk to Hidalgo centro, 5 minute walk to Playa Norte, two minutes to the ferry. Relaxing in the pool with its beautiful view of the sea and the sound of waves crashing on the shore was heaven. We'll be back - we've found our new favorite place to stay on Isla!

Room Tip: There is a walkway that runs along the sea side of the hotel, so privacy could be an issue on the ground floor. For that reason I would suggest booking a room on the 2nd or third floor ( if stair climbing is not an issue for you).

After visiting Isla Mujeres and the Rocamar Hotel more than two dozen times since 1981, it is about time I gave this outstanding hotel its due! In keeping with the relaxed atmosphere on IM, I generally arrive un-booked. So it is that occasionally I must stay elsewhere than the Rocamar; otherwise, I’d never stay elsewhere on the island. Still, I’ve stayed at five other places now, and have plenty of comparison. Rocamar beats anything ranked above or below it on IM, and at a quarter of the price of all but one of its reasonable competition.

Through three owners, two major renovations, and one restaurant format change, the Rocamar’s combination of on-water location, center-of-town convenience, unwavering cleanliness, friendly service and low price is unmatched. The pool is modest, the restaurant is modest, they don’t have a private beach, but they do have everything you could reasonably need, and what is not on site is a block away or less. Their balconies are large and private enough for an amorous couple, the sea breeze is the best on the island, the ocean noise lulls you to sleep, and you’ll never need your AC. They’re a reasonable walk from everything but El Garaffon (that’s on the southern tip of the island).

At a quarter the price of Ixchel, Na Balam, and Las Palmas (and without their pretense, bugs and claustrophobia, respectively) you can’t beat Rocamar! Osorio is cheaper, but much much hotter, noisier, smaller and less clean. Overall, nothing on IM is as good as Rocamar! Singles, couples, or family, (I’ve done it all three ways) it is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: go for the second floor for better breezes, first floor if the occasional salt spray appeals to you
