Hotel Las Palmas is the perfect home away from home. The owners (Kate and Safari) greeted us with open arms and made us feel very comfortable. We received a tour of the new community kitchen on the rooftop terrace that has more appliances than our kitchen at home.
Our room was super clean and no shortage of showering hot water during any time of the day. Each room is equipped with a small bar fridge, ceiling fan, and air conditionning. The entire atmosphere in this hotel is so relaxing. You can suntan on the rooftop or relax in the pool, or sit in the shade and watch the island pass you by under any of the shady areas on the first, second, or rooftop. For those of you are "chatty Kathy's" and want to socialize there is plenty of that during the many "happy hours" on the rooftop, but if you want a quiet, lazy holiday the hotel is big enough for that as well.
We have been to Isla on several occasions and as a rule we never stay at the same hotel twice, but after experiencing Las Palmas we have already booked our December stay with this lovely hotel/guest house.
We look forward to seeing Kate, Safari, Dania, Francesco, Cochito, and hopefully Ken and the girls during our next stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Las Palmas is your home away from home on Isla Mujeres, tucked away from the hustle-bustle of Cancun. We are a family run hotel (three generations of women, mother-daughter and grand-daughter). Naturally, our place is a very unpretentious accommodation with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We have many comfy communal areas, including a rooftop with a plunge pool. You'll find lounge chairs, hammocks, and tables with chairs to welcome you after a day at the beach - possibly an afternoon siesta. Our communal kitchen is also on the terrace and fully equipped. Our shaded deck on our second level, overlooking the street and is a great spot for people watching or reading a good book.We are located in the heart of the downtown. The beautiful turquoise of the Caribbean and powdery sand beach at Playa Norte are a block away (5 min walk). Just around the corner is Hidalgo Avenue, filled with cuisine from all over the world, live music, and friendly locals and tourists alike. We're directly across from the municipal market with four "loncheria" eating stalls, housing tasty, economical breakfast-lunch meals, as well as fresh squeezed juices.We have a hotel dog, Cachito (hypoallergenic, rasta-hair poodle) who is always ready for a stroll. ... more less
