We decided to check out Puerto Morelos on a tip from a colleague, and I found this hotel on TripAdvisor.com. Last year we spent time in Tulum (the village) and loved it, and were wondering how this place would hold up.
First of all, we LOVED Puerto Morelos. It's so laid back, non-touristy (in comparison with other places) and the beaches were amazing. The restaurants were amazing, the square was alive with a festival of some kind (live music!) and the people were all so kind.
Second of all, we were so incredibly thrilled with this hotel. It's location is awesome (a block from the beach, a few steps from the town square), it's super clean, has an awesome little restaurant (and fantastic simple breakfast included), the staff are all so nice and helpful - I couldn't believe our luck. The room was beautiful - so clean and bright, high ceilings, a closet for your stuff plus a futon - i was just blown away. the pool/garden area was just gorgeous and we felt so lucky to have found it.
The bed was a bit small but we didn't mind. The only, ONLY downside was barking dogs, but not much they can do about that. We had a room with a fan so we had the windows open to get the nice fresh air, so we just shut the window and turned up the fan.
The dive shop adjacent was also fantastic and Ramona was really helpful. it was nice to rent bikes (which were well maintained) and cruise around - be sure to check out the boardwalk (ask Ramona!) We did a snorkel trip with them as well, Manuel was a great guide. Loved every second of this hotel and Puerto Morelos.
