This was our 3rd trip to Isla Mujeres, and our 4th different place to stay. On our last trip, we checked out Posada Del Mar and it was on the top of our lists of places to stay. For background, we've stayed at Hotel Playa Media Luna, Casa Maya, and a large condo on the southern tip of the island. I had immensely enjoyed each of these other three properties.
The things we liked about PDM were the restaurant, we enjoyed the pool area and bar, maid service was good and the
rooms were good size and clean. We knew the rooms did not have a refrigerator or coffee maker before, but that was a real inconvenience. I'd prefer a place with a bit more conveniences such as these. We stayed in the main building which is the older part. Decent view of the ocean from there, but the a/c was directly on the small porch, so you really could not sit on the patio and enjoy anything for the noise. I may have been more satisfied if we had not paid $100 per night (with taxes). This was not a $100 night hotel. Also, I prefer to stay off a main street.
I had Josephine, a local estician come to the room and do a very nice facial for $35.00. She is opening her own shop in town and will be ready for business in June or so. Lots of construction on Isla. There are many new hotels and houses being built since our last visit pre Wilma.
Food contiunues to be as good as ever, but a bit pricier than I recall. I guess it's because of Islla's increasing popularity. Still a fantastic vacation spot and among my favorites, but I would stay at a different hotel next time. I'm seriusly considering one of the $35 night places just to try it out.
