The room was as pictured. Bed was hard. Pillows were flat. Blanket was actually a sheet. Refrigerator froze the top shelf but not the lower and turned on and off loudly. There was hot water in the shower. I was provided a large bottle of drinkable water since I stayed for the week and could not drink the tap water.... More

We went back to this hotel in December, a few years after our first visit. The beach and view are still a plus, but there were more problems. We, too, encountered the red ants mentioned in another review, although we changed rooms (to the side closer to the cafe) and didn't have a further problem. Breakfast is no longer included... More

The hotel really looked great upon arrival. Great view, banana trees in the surroundings and every room with balcony. We left our bags in the room and then took a cab (quite a drive, almost 10 km from the town) in to town. When we got back in the evening (after another long cab drive) we inspected our room more...

The Hotel Garrafon is a bit worn around the edges, but the rooms are large and clean, the beds comfortable, and the views unbeatable. Guests at the hotel have free use of the small beach club, located on a calm bay with turquoise water. There are one or two restaurants in walking distance, and it's easy to get a cab... More

We just returned from a long weekend stay at another hotel on Isla Mujeres. Because our hotel did not have their own dive operation, they offered to sign us up for two-tank morning dives at Hotel Garrafon for Friday and Saturday mornings. After an hour late start on Friday morning, two dive shop employees accompanied the three divers out for... More

We have stayed at the Garrafon Hotel at least 6 times. The view is beautiful with a great balcony. The snorkeling cannot be beat. We love this hotel as it offers us peace away from North Beach, where the snorkeling is perfect. The Garrafon park is located next to this hotel and is where people go to pay to snorkel.... More

We have stayed at the Garrafon 4 times and plan on returning in September. The staff are so friendly and it has such a family atmosphere. The snorkling is great right off the shore, the rooms are clean and the view from the balcony is beautiful. We usually stay the first 4 days here and then move to the Media... More
