Hotel Rocamar
Ranked #15 of 38 Hotels in Isla Mujeres
Reviewed 9 March 2011

Stayed 6 nights at the end of February and really enjoyed my stay. Lovely rooms, minimalist in style, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and fantastic balcony. The ocean waves crashing on shore right outside the window lull you to sleep even when you are well rested. The entire exterior wall of the room is sliding glass dorrs that open all the way and there is always a cooling ocean breeze.
Be aware that the sound of the ocean is sort of loud so could be problematic if you are a light sleeper and two walls of the bathroom are glass so if you need privacy from your travelling partner, think it over. There are curtains that can be drawn across the bathroom "walls" for privacy.
The location is good, 5 minutes walk to anywhere in centro, and the helpful staff make Rocamar a perfect getaway. Also only a 5 minute walk from Puerto Juarez.
It does take some time for the water to get hot in the shower and even that is no big deal when you have no where to be in a hurry on Isla Mujeres.

Our second stay with Roca Mar, first one about 10 years ago before the hurrican hit. The hotel was a little more rustic then however I love the remodel. The staff was attentive, excellent and the grounds were clean and relaxing. I will never stay anyplace else as you can walk all around town and to the beaches. The sea is feet from the balcony. Thank you again Roca Mar....see you when we see you! Rick and Debra

From the moment we checked in the clerk showed indifference. No attempt was made to tell us about the facilities available and no offer to help us up the stairs with our bags. There are lots of empty rooms on Isla Mujeres this week- we know when we are not wanted as guests. Beautiful views of the sea but we don't need to watch one another on the toilet. What a ridiculous bathroom design.

This hotel was designed to give the experience of being on a cruise ship and from our third floor room we could have sworn we were at sea. From inside our room all we could see was the Caribbean and all we could hear were the waves crashing on the shore. It is beautiful. Minimalist in design, modern in style. We really liked it and stayed for 7 days after fleeing another hotel after one night (which was dirty, noisy and over priced). The cleanliness and quiet were just what we needed after our bad experience. Only downsides: the almost non-existent water pressure in the shower and the wi-fi is only in the lobby (their info is slightly misleading, leading many to believe it is available in the rooms).

This place will be really great when the upkeep construction is done. But because of it we got a great deal on a lovely room with a balcony right over the waves crashing on the rocks and a hammock on the balcony. Lovely. The staff were responsive when we needed an extra fan, and fixed our broken toilet seat immediately on our reporting it. The hotel is located just a few short blocks from the ferry, a block from the supermarket, a coffee shop, a internet cafe and a laundry and two blocks from the downtown shops and restaurants. A bit farther but still walkable are the best beaches on the north side. Super convenient! The front desk will help you rent a golf cart for a fun day of traveling around this island paradise. With this you can travel to the southern point beaches as well. WiFi is free but only works in the lobby, not the rooms and only during business hours. Room, linens and bath were clean and pleasant.

We spent there 4 beautiful days. The room was just in front of the sea (ground floor) and we woke up with the sea noise leaving the windows opened, amazing !!! Cold water and coffee always available close to the reception and the room cleaning each morning was perfect.

5 minutes walking from the centre of turistic and clubs area.
15 minutes walking from Playa Norte.
