Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2009

Spent 13 glorious days in this hotel that has all rooms located on the second floor. A fabulous breakfast restaurant is downstairs. The hotel is very clean, a short walk to the best beaches and restaurants. The views from the front rooms are amazing. The rooms are either a double bed room with refrigerator, flat screen TV & A/C or an Apartment with one king bed and kitchenette, flat screen TV & A/C. Free WiFi and morning coffee are also included in the "best price" hotel on the island. Already rebooked 14 days for next year.

Great location for being close to the shops, restaurants and the beach yet the hotel itself is on a quiet street.
The rooms are modest and could reaaallly use a place to hang up clothes but the rooms are kept exceedingly clean and have everything a traveler needs. We chose this hotel over other cheaper options because it had a mini fridge and a/c. Neither were used very much but the option is very nice.
There is a tiny market below so you don't have to go far to get your bottled water (20 pesos for a big jug). There is also a great breakfast joint downstairs that serves Cazuelas (a layered dish of beans, salsa, eggs, tortillas and cheese). It comes out piping hot and topped with pan-fried bananas, the Holbox Cazuela is hard to beat.

We stayed here six nights and would definitely go back but I have two warnings besides the no closet aspect.. 1. The cleaning staff organized all of our possessions daily, so if you don't want your stuff to be messed with put it away in the drawers or in your luggage. 2. The bed is a tad hard and the covers a tad flimsy.

I discovered Hotel Xbulu-Ha as I wandered the streets of Isla Mujeres. It's tucked upstairs above an internet cafe and a dentist, in a relatively new building. When I inquired about rates, the receptionist was quite welcoming and friendly, and really worked with me to get a good rate for my 5 night stay. (Around $30US, but it was still low season.)

The room was large, very clean, and nicely appointed (flat screen TV, hair dryer, free in-room safe, and small fridge). Some rooms include full kitchens as well. There was also excellent lighting, something I've found lacking in many hotels in Mexico/Central America.

My room was cleaned and tidied every day without fail, and the staff was always very friendly. It was a very quiet location (a block off the main Avenida Hidalgo), yet it was close to everything.

Xbulu-Ha felt like home by the end of my stay - I hated to leave.
