“Happy Travellers...”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

The Hotel Posada Mariposa was a fantastic last minute online find and was perfect for what we (3 family adults) required.We were booked into a resort for 3 nights for a family wedding but wanted somewhere to stay that was not a package deal for 3 days prior. The room was downstairs so quite dark, but as we were out most of the day, swimming and sightseeing, this was not a concern for us.It was very clean and had a good aircon and fridge. The tea/coffee/water available in the lobby, morning and afternoon was great.The management were very hospitable and Juan Carlos was very helpful on arrival with info and maps on where to eat and drink.The hotel has an agreement for beach access and is handy to all restaurants and bars. TV was average with not many English channels.I agree that it had a tree hut atmosphere and was warm and quaint. We paid online in NZD using Booking.com

Good location and upstairs rooms the best though they tried to put us on the lower floors at first. Our room was quiet, minibar and good air conditioning. I really liked the decor and the tree hut feel of the place. Bit disappointed by not being able to pay in dollars, even though room was quoted in dollars.. As a result I got screwed on the exchange rate twice (by the front desk and my bank) and the room ends up being 20% more expensive...

We recently stayed at this hotel in April. The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the location, the complementary coffee in the am, free wifi and overall warm feeling of this quaint hotel. This is not a 5 star hotel nor does it claim to be. The rooms are basic but clean and functional. Our air conditioner didn't work the first night and was serviced asap. Loved our stay, wonderful place and get the breakfast well worth it!

The front desk staff were excellent and did their best to make our stay enjoyable, especially Juan Carlos. We stayed 6 nights in April, we wouldn't classify this hotel as a 3 Star, maybe 2.5. Room 12 should not be part of the online booking system because it's more like a 1 Star room. Very bad first impression! The change to room 21 after our first night helped and was appreciated. We should have been charged for the first night in room 12. We made a complaint to the manager through the front desk but received no response.

Room Tip: Insist that you do not be placed on the ground floor. In our reservation we requested above ground f...

If you're looking for a hotel in the center of Playa del Carmen's tourist district, this is the place for you. It's right on 5th Ave - the main tourist drag. However, that can also make the place louder than some want. My room was on the street side so I could hear the late night action outside - not horrible, but obvious.

My room was more like a one-bedroom apartment than a typical hotel room. I believe they do rent out rooms by the month - maybe that is why. It had AC, a small kitchenette and sitting area.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will be quieter.

My husband and I stayed on the top floor, very private and beatiful room, with a roof overlooking 5th ave. A little noisey at night, but its 5th ave, we expected that. Juan Carlos and all of the staff were super friendly and helpful. 5 minute walk to the beach, and central to every bar and restaurant. Loved it here and would definitely come back!!!!

Room Tip: ask for the room on the top floor if its available!

What a great little hotel our dive shop "Mexico Blue Dream" hooked us up with for our short stay in Playa!
The rooms are great, there were free Internet, two Queen Size Beds, TV, Air Con, free coffee and water!
The receptionist helped us out with iPhone chargers and everybody was very friendly and smiling!
Even though the Hotel is in the middle of 5. Av. there was no noise and we slept very well!
The centre of the hotel is a very cozy botanic garden, which gives a jungle like feel and looks lovely!
We enjoyed this very much and can recommend it to everybody!
