I thought I would share a quick and somewhat funny experience on the Hotel Rocamar on Isla Mujeres.
We were there from March18-25th. The rate for the hotel was reasonable at $85.00 per night tax incl(usd)
The Hotel staff were really friendly the property and rooms very clean. We quite enjoyed the location close to town behind the church in the main square.
It is located on the shoreline on the west coast of the island next to the malacon.
So on with the story. We were sitting around the pool having a Cervesa listening to "Jimmy Buffett Migration" on a small battery powered Bluetooth speaker. Our group and 1 guy on a floatie in the pool.
I did even ask him if it was ok to put some tunes on. An elderly lady came buy and informed is that "we don't like that kind of music here" (turns out she is the Rocamar manager. There was apparently no problem with the volume only the content.
I went to the desk to find out what the problem was and was told she did not appreciate our music choice and if it was "Puccini" we would have been ok. I wanted to clarify our problem and was told it just was not acceptable. I asked her if she really felt that playing "Jimmy Buffett" at a beachside Caribbean resort was really worthy of eviction.
At that point the front desk staff just started laughing and one actually had to excuse themselves. It just sounds like a completely ridiculous situation to me given our location.
Thought I would share my thoughts on a good little hotel and what a bad manager can do for a property.
Next time back to Nautibeach....lol
