“It's like your own villa on the beach.....”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

The former Avalon – Baccara, now known as the Mia – Baccara is a boutique hotel, with only 27 rooms, located on the beach amongst the modern giant hotels. I find this a respite from the “Vegas” style mega hotels now occupying most of the beach front in Cancun. True that the building is showing her age with cosmetic imperfections from years of neglect by the former owners, but then this is part of the charm of the hotel.

During our two night stay, we had great service by Alex, Juan, Daniel, Dan, and Louis – they went out of their way to make us feel at home….from check in, to changing our rooms, to drink and food service on the beach. And being at home is the feeling one gets while staying at this hotel. This is not so much a hotel, but rather a villa on one of the best beaches in the world.

One word of caution – no elevator so if you do not do well with stairs, this hotel is not for you.

great place to get individualized attention in a resort town. close to shopping and eats on foot and what views and ease to sun and surf!!!! we loved the staff, so helpful with transportation issues, food service and housekeeping questions. Our room overlooking the pool and beautiful Caribbean was dreamy!

We had a 2 bdr oceanfront room and just loved it! Clean, well appointed, comfortable beds and we could almost reach out and touch the beach. After 4 nights here we had booked into two different mega resorts that just didn't come close to the ambiance of the Baccarra. Staff was excellent and restaurant was well priced. If we ever return to Cancun again, its the only place we plan on staying.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for oceanside room...worth the extra cost!

great view of the ocean from the bedroom. WC was clean. Very spatious room. poorly maintained jacuzzi at the balcony(rust and salt all over).Old furniture. It took ages for the 1 employee to prepare breakfast, eventhough it was just us in there at that time, but it was really good after all. Not willing to provide info as to where a tourist can go around that area.

Place difficult to find, place need a lot of refurbish to become a nice place. Very nice people working there as it is usual in all México. the beach in front is great and that´s it. Nice localization, nice view but not nice rooms very old!!!! Don´t go there.

Surprised that seeing the reviews on the side as I write this is pretty negative. I had zero complaints. We went in low season so yes there wasn't really anyone else there but that meant that the staff were very helpful. I needed to change a taxi booking and the front desk called on my behalf. Our room was big, huge bed and clean. Maybe one day was not enough to see the flaws that others saw but I definitely didn't feel uncomfortable staying here on first impressions. It's not your 4 star resort hotel but that's exactly what we were trying to avoid. It's cute, friendly and backs onto the beach so I have no complaints. Also if you stay here, go eat at the little shack just next door to the hotel's entrance.

OMG, I've stayed here before when it was the Avalon Baccara & had mostly good things to say about the property & staff, but the property, now the "Hotel Bacarette" has a new owner, new staff, & OMG has the property gone down hill fast !
I had a recent reservation but refused to stay after seeing how dirty, broken down, & poorly maintained the rooms have gotten.
They get 1 star because they are located on a beautiful stretch of sand in Cancun, but then again so is every other hotel in Cancun !
With so many very nice places to stay in the area, I would HIGHLY recommend booking your trip to a different property.
I lost 1 day of my vacation scrambling to find a different hotel after arriving and by then you get stuck paying a premium, but I am SOOOOOO glad that I chose the lost day & financial hit over spending my vacation at this property. OMG, DON'T GO !

Room Tip: If you want a nice clean relaxing place to stay by the beach, with working a/c, no bugs.... book a...
