A nice place. At first, I was surprised to find this on TA under B&B instead of Hotels, but after staying 2 nights I can see why. If you are expecting a standard hotel, with entry on the first level and elevators, this is not the place. But the rooms are nice and hotel-like, with a couple double beds, chairs/table, fridge, and a fine bathroom (though not much water pressure). Each room has a deck with a gorgeous view looking toward Cancun, and a hammock. La Joya is built into a rocky hill, so you will need to take outside stairs to most every room, but if you don't mind that, it's a great place. The couple running the place seem very nice and accommodating Breakfast is brought to your room each morning at the time you specify: toast with butter and jam to spread, excellent orange juice, and coffee.
Pool is fine, nice view. The free wifi worked well.
We stayed in room 8, adjacent to room 7. Given the choice between the two, 7 appears to have the better view, as 8 is right in front of the pool hut, but still a fine view. (see pictures)
This is located a bit outside the main town, and not much within walking distance. We had rented a car, so it was fine for us.
