Amar Inn B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Amar Inn is family run by brothers Luis and Miguel with rooms and cabanas set in a small but beautifully kept garden, where you may catch a glimpse of an iguana. We climbed a rickety looking wooden spiral staircase to the green room, a large and airy room with a sea view from one window. We found the bed comfortable and the hot water plentiful. There was AC and a fan but we didn't need either, the breeze from the sea was sufficient, and we had clean towels daily, fashioned into swans and fans.
We've had wonderful breakfasts here including a different local dish each day. The first morning we saw people with what looked like stuffed pancakes in chocolate sauce, so were surprised to find they were tacos filled with chicken or cheese with the famous Mexican mole sauce containing bitter chocolate - delicious and completely savoury. Other days we had a crispy tortilla topped with bean paste, ham and spicy fried potatoes, squash and corn in tomato sauce with black beans and tortilla crisps with green chile. We had a great stay, and would return, but this is not for those who are expecting luxury.

Room Tip: The green room was particularly nice, with good breeze.

We stayed for 2 wks, had the jungle room palapa. Very nice room, wonderful view! Don't be scared off by the eco toilet -- its perfectly fine, no odours. Nice sitting area in front and a small deck facing the sea. Miguel, Luis, and all staff are great. Breakfasts were good, interesting, Mexican. Bed and linens were tired... Excellent daily cleaning and the small grounds are very well maintained. Very pleasant experience, excellent location -- likely one of the best.

Just got back from 2 nights at the Amar Inn. This small hotel in Puerto Morelos is really a find because being just 20 minutes from the Cancun airport, prices on this beach tend to be sky high. Granted this is not a luxury resort but a personable family run place just steps from the beach with all you need to relax and enjoy. We rented the "penthouse" for $90 a night and it is spacious with a palapa roof and even a small view of the ocean from the kingsized bed. Breakfast is included in the price but be warned getting to the penthouse involves climbing a very steep winding staircase not for those with movement issues. If you don't mind a little rustic and location on the beach at an affordable price is important, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: Penthouse- worth the price for an ocean view and sea breeze.

There are not many places like this to stay in Puerto Morelos that are close to the beach and with funky accommodation and a well maintained garden. It is only a short walk to the centre of town. And there are rooms for all budgets.

The best room for us was the ocean view room - just gorgeous with a traditional palapa roof (& I did sample a few rooms!). The little casas in the garden are good too and even have kitchen facilities.

The breakfasts are just great and the staff are lovely. Top marks for Amar Inn and the lovely area around Puerto Morelos.

Room Tip: Ocean view was our favourite room - the little houses in the garden are nice too.

We ended our 23-day Mexican trip with a 7 day stay @ Amar Inn and it couldn't have been better!! From the moment we arrived (with a small rental car issue that the staff immediately helped us sort out) we were impressed with the helpfulness and professionalism of the family members that run this B and B. It's proximity to the beach (dive shop, yoga on the beach, shore snorkelling) was excellent. Anything one might need or want- Book Store, restaurants, fish shop, farmers market,)biking rental, all easy to walk to. Amar's reputed breakfasts exceeded our expectations - what great way to start the day with all that delicious food. My food preference is to not eat red meat and they were all over that, too! The first few nights we stayed in a casita and we used the hot plate to do a bit of cooking (after a few weeks of eating out I loved making our own dinner.) Then, we moved to the white room, which was perfect for us because it includes a screened porch, which we used for drying our diving/snorkelling gear. Having that gave us more room in the room - stored luggage out there, too.
Equally, if not more important, was the warmth we felt from the staff and the friendliness of Amar's other guests. It was a great 'chill axing' time before we headed back home. Will return!!
Used the lounge chairs quite a bit.

Room Tip: White room has porch for drying stuff out Casitas have hotplates

I stayed at Amar Inn for 12 days and loved it. The owners and staff were always friendly and helpful. They were willing to indulge my Spanish, but also spoke excellent English. The breakfasts (and I usually don't like breakfast) were fantastic -- juice, fresh fruit, bread, coffee/tea and a hot Mexican dish served until 10. The inn is so close to the beach that I could slip on out for a quick dip and walk before breakfast, saunter on over for a massage at Violetta's on the beach before the sun set, and sneak a peak at the amazing night sky before turning in. I also walked to town (a few blocks away) along the beach during the day and at night in perfect safety. My bungalow was beautiful and evenhad a patio where I could work on my computer. All the guests I met loved the place too. As for reservations, I called the travel agency number a couple of times and finally connected with a live person. I believe there's also a way to reserve on line.

Clean room, super nice staff, delicious breakfast included in the price. The hotel is right next to the beach, so why not go for an early morning jogging! Also very close to restaurants.

There is also a parking for your rental car!
