Our room was pretty run-down. We used a 3rd party site and booked at the last minute. We also only stayed for one night. I'm guessing if you book through the hotel, you may get a better room? We were in the older building. The doors were flimsy and no safe. Isla Mujeres is safe, but we don't travel anywhere national or international where our valuables and passports aren't "on us" or in a safe. It's not the staff we don't trust. Tourist areas attract opportunists. Posada del Mar does not offer safes, or at least not in the older rooms. The older wall unit air conditioner sounded like a train when it ran. There was a big piece of the closet door missing and a large gap around the exterior door and balcony door. The bathrooms smell because the elevation is so low. I don't think any of the hotels can help that. Just see if you can get a room on a higher floor. The rooms around the pool looked nice. The gentleman at the front desk was not all that happy to see more guests.
Based on their attitude, it seems like we tourists (or maybe just the "assertive" few) have invaded the natives space. Isla Mujeres is so beautiful and I hope to visit again, but can't help but feel we are not welcome to anyone but bartenders and waiters. The pool is nice and the hotel is directly across the street from the beach.
