one of the best vacation ever,, look at the pics at the beach and it is you have fews steps of your room,,,,for me the beach is the most important,,,,it was just amazing,.... what I would like to add was the people,,,, Sebastian, best cook in the Island,,,I ate his fish couple of times.. I was lucky I was in the hotel in time his dad from argentina was visiting him,, and he was a profesional Fisherman,,,so it was interesting to watch how the fishing has to be done in the Carrebean...:) Agostine, Senora Lady and El Senor,,, all great people ready to talk anytime ...... and the "muello".... i was unfortunatly on solo trip...coz this is really a romatic place to wtach the sunset over cancun

the great thing is that the most easternmost point of mexico is just in a walking distance with Temple park...

as well, there s new jamaican bar close to the hotel and they serve very good juices...

I am thinking of some minuses,,,but,, i just had a good time...

It is too expensive for what you get. The view from this hotel is defiantly worth seeing but I would recommend going for the day rather than staying here. The food at the restaurant is really nice and the staff Sebastian and Augustine were friendly. If you eat at the restaurant you can use the private beach, the sun loungers and the pool as if you were staying there. This said we would not recommend staying here. There was one price advertised on the website which was different from that on the booking site. We sent an email when booking and we were advised that we would be charged the cheaper rate as advertised. When we arrived we were told we had to pay the more expensive price, which was A LOT more than what we had agreed. The place is located a long way from town and it is difficult to get transportation if you want to explore the rest of the Island or eat somewhere other than the hotel. Also the room although spacious, smelt mouldy and there was no hot water. We wouldn't have minded all this if we were given the room for the original agreed price. You can get MUCH cheaper places with hot water and views that are just as nice, right in the town.

You've heard there is crime in the area? Really? And because of that it's a bad place? Even when it's not IN the hotel area? Come on.

We stopped in for dinner the day we rented our golf cart. It was a wonderful little place. After dinner we went for a swim and had a little siesta on the private beach. It looked like a neat little hotel, with even some rooms separate, by themselves. The staff was very friendly and the people staying there were as well.

Yes it's down a back lane, but we felt completely at ease. We have been through China, Veitnam and now Isla Mujeres and there are more scary places in our Canadian cities at home than any of these places.

A perfect spot for low maintenance couples. Or even if you are solo. A private beach, palm tree huts, great drinks and hammocks await you...it's in walking distance of the south end of the island for the sunrise! Please treasure this little hideaway.

We watched the sunset while my niece played in the pool, drinking margaritas and letting our hunger build. The young couple running the restaurant are in from Argentina and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We were wowed by the seafood appetizer plate shared amongst us and then ordered beef and red snapper that were equally delicious and carefully prepared. The chef's passion is evident in his creations. We lingered a long time and felt very much at home at Maria's. Don't be put off by the slightly unkempt road, nor the quiet hotel. Go and enjoy your private dinner spot! This is one of the special experiences to have on Isla Mujeres!

This is the place for a great view on the sea and yummy Fresh food prepared with attention. Original recipes mix of the influences of the chef, and great staff. We had a great time. This was really fine cuisine we followed the chefs recommendation for the fish of the day and the fish with ajillo sauce. Would highly recommend and go back!!
