My 19--year old son and I spent 4 nights at Hotel Rocamar on the recommendation of a friend who had spent vacations there for the past 25 years. I paid $50 US per night and the room had two double beds, A/C and small fridge. No TV, which was a blessing. Isla Mujeres has so much to see you won't want to spend time in front of a TV. The hotel is located at the south end of the Restaurant / Shopping district, so everything is within walking distance.
Bring comfortable walking shoes. I did not and wished I had. We rented a golf cart one day to tour the north end of the isand and see all of the sites, so the rest of the time we walked and used cabs when we needed to go further than a mile.
The staff is very helpful and takes great care of the property. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing east to the Carribean Sea. Every room has a hammock on the balcony and ours got lots of nap time hours!
There is an outdoor basketball court where the locals play organized teams every night starting at dark. The food from the street vendors is a good as you get in the restaurants. A pastry shop a block away makes fresh stuff daily and serves coffee, juice and sodas, if you don't feel like going to a restaurant for breakfast.
The only downside is the nightclub located 100 feet from the hotel plays loud DJ music starting around 11pm and into the early hours of the morning. Bring earplugs and you won't be bothered with it.
I will go back to Rocamar my next trip to Isla Mujeres.
