“The Soggy Peso was just what we needed!!!”
Reviewed 27 February 2011

When I was looking for a place to stay in Isla Mujeres I came across the Soggy Peso on trip advisor. I liked the descriptions from other guests like "laid back", "perfect" and "fun". The more I researched the more I decided that this is the place for us. And boy was I right! From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Mal and Sally and the rest of the staff were the best I have experienced. Our room had everything we needed. It was cleaned everyday and the bed was very comfortable. We ate several meals there including the famous Sunday BBQ which all were really good. Mal gave us several recommendations for things to do on the island and they were all excellent but our favorite thing to do was hang out with our new "friends" at the Soggy Peso".

We are already planning our next trip and we will definately be at the Soggy Peso. Thank you Mal, Sally, Freddy, Jay-Jay, Gustavo, Daniele, and Chewey, Oh and I can't forget "soggy doggy" who had morning coffee with me every day. You guys are all great!

I've heard about The Soggy Peso from a friend. It was everything she said it was and more.
The room was so comfortable and beautiful. Mal and Sally made me feel right at home.
I can't wait to return with my husband and stay for the Sunday Baby Back Ribs!
Thank you for making a stranger feel like one of you family.

My wife and I spent six nights at Soggy Peso beginning on May 1. On a previous trip, we had frequented the bar, so we knew what to expect and it did not disappoint. Sally and Mal are great hosts. They are as hands on or hands off as you want. The room is very comfortable with a king bed, well decorated, has good a/c, and comes with a mini-frig. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi that works well. Just outside your door is a pool and the palapa bar is about 15 yards from your door. Don't worry about the noise, because the bar closes around 8:30pm each night so that it does not disturb the guests. The bar serves excellent food with a special every day such as shrimp tacos, wings, or cheeseburgers. However, you cannot miss the Sunday BBQ and Mal's baby-back ribs; fall off the bone good. Freddie and Yo-Yo are great guys and provide top notch service at the bar and make sure everyone is having a fun time. You'll encounter some interesting conversations with all the patrons coming and going. The Soggy Peso is located close to the marina, right on the water, so you see some boats passing by and also a great sunset. It is only about a 15 minute walk into town or a 30 peso cab ride. There is an adults only (at least 21) policy which suited us just fine. We definitely plan on a return trip to the Soggy Peso soon.

My wife and I along with two other couples stayed this past week at the Soggy Peso and couldn't have had a better time! If you're looking for a big resort with all the typical tourist trap pitfalls then Soggy Peso isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a great place to kick back, relax, have wonderful gracious hosts with a top notch bar and staff, then head to the Soggy Peso. No need to spend a fortune to have a great time. The rooms are very nice, clean and Mal and Sally along with Freddy and the bar staff go out of their way to make your stay carefree. They love to sit around the bar and share their stories about life on the island and what it means to be on "island time". The Sunday ribfest is wonderful and everything is prepared from scratch, with generous portions of tender ribs. Get there early, enjoy a cocktail or two while the staff prepares your meal and get ready to be entertained! Our only regret is that we had to come home!

Once again we decided that we had to make a trip back over to the Soggy Peso on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres, MX.
We found this treasure of a hotel and palapa bar to be way more fun than we ever imagined last year and just could not wait to get back again this year!
The atmosphere and staff were warm and welcoming and made us laugh.
The rooms are so comfortable and the BBQ even better than it was last year!
Keep it up Mal & Sally you have a one of a kind spot!

Where can you go where you can walk out of your room and be 7 feet from your own bar and restaurant. The bar is so quaint that everyone sitting around the bar all talk to each other and you get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Some people might say why would you want to stay that close to a bar and restaurant. Well if you know the island just about everywhere you stay is right there next to a bar and restaurant. But at soggy peso. It opens at noon and closes at 8pm. So if you feel like partying later you can go into town. Or if you feel like calling it a night its quiet by 8. I have never stayed anywhere where the staff was so friendly and attentive. The staff actually became our friends. From the moment we arrived we were greeted and served welcoming margaritas. And from that very first time we were always greeted by our first names. My favorite specials were Sunday's ribs, Wednesday hot wings and Tuesdays shrimp tacos. There is a little private beach just behind the bar where you can watch the boats come in and out and watch the beautiful sun set.. I would recommend this bed and cocktails to anyone.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
ISLAND TIME Located on the beautiful Bahia de Isla, The Soggy Peso --unique and full of character--is just a short distance from El Centro(the island's business district). Our waterfront view allows the visitor to check out the fishermen leaving in the mornings and returning with their catches at sunset.......sunsets that are absolutely breathtaking over a cold cerveza or a glass of wine. But we are also convenient to the white sands of North Beach and the numerous bars and restaurants on Hidalgo Street But don't forget the Soggy Peso Palapa Bar where fishermen and colorful characters of the Island alike take pride in swapping their Caribbean experiences-----some true....some not so true. And the bartender....who refuses to be outdone......has the tendency at times of being slightly more interesting than his customers. Our laid back life style at The Soggy Peso personifies that famous line in one of Jimmy Buffett's songs..."Keep it simple , Stupid".So..... Bienvenidos!!!! Parrot Heads,Yayhoos, SnubQueens, and Good Ole' Boys!!!!!!! ALMOST FORGOT!.....In keeping with our Bed & Cocktail theme, each room guest will be entitled daily to some free Bloody Marys in the morning and some free Margaritas in the afternoon! ... more   less
