We arrived at Meson San Miguel on Christmas Day 2006. Due to some airline mishaps, we ended up having to fly into Cancun, taxi to Playa and then ferry to Cozumel. Upon disembarking from the ferry, the Meson San Miguel was like a shining beacon of relief that was so simple to just walk to. It is an older hotel, but the staff is so helpful; it also helps if you know some Spanish. The staff was always smiling. Our room faced the lovely old-fashioned square complete with a wonderful clock tower. We had a balcony that I enjoyed sitting on early each morning watching the local folks heading to the ferry, greet each other, set up their stands, etc. In the evening, there were local activities, music, and the wonderful aroma of food cooking. Our room/bathroom was always clean and spotless. If you are looking for a 5-star hotel where you just want to stay in your room, never hear any noise and enjoy fancy furniture, then this hotel is not for you. The location is wonderful to walk around the town, visit local restaurants and soak up the Mexican culture. At all times we were completely safe, both at the hotel and in the village and on the beaches. I would recommend renting a car to travel to the beaches and all around the island as the town is not on a very sandy beach that is good for walking and swimming. I would definately go back to this hotel for the convenience and for the warmth of the people.
