For the most part, Hotel D'Gomar got very good reviews, so we booked a room for 3 nights. When we arrived, we were a little disappointed when we saw the hotel's location and rooms. For some reason, I thought the hotel was located on a side street near the main street, but it is definitely right on the most trafficked street on the island. There are golf carts, taxis, trucks and scooters constantly whizzing by during the day. We asked for a room in the back, which we got, but even though we kept the ac on at night, muffling most noise, we were awakened by dogs barking a few times, which is not the hotel's fault, of course.
The rooms are basic. The beds were pretty comfortable, but were covered with bottom sheet, top sheet, blanket, and another top sheet. The whiteness of it all made the room seem even more bland. The maid was lovely, showing us some of the amenities of the hotel, such as lounge area with refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. She kept things clean, but there seemed to be a slight gritty feeling on the floor of our room even after cleaning. We think it is hard to remove sand from all of the guests using the room over the years.
The hotel is well priced for the island, and was comfortable enough for our time spent. Our expectations were higher, though.

This is a nice place to stay, yes the rooms are a bit dated and it is basic in places, but for the money it does everything you would expect. There is free coffee and water and a fridge in the breakfast area. It was a bit noisy during the day when we stayed as they are building a new ferry terminal opposite, but it didn't affect our sleep. Frank is a cool guy and was very helpful when we had any queries. Our room was a bit scruffy but everything worked and it was very handy for getting around the island.

Room Tip: Maybe ones further back from the main road

Weather dreadful over festive period and i wasn`t enjoying mainland Mexico and its filth at all..So to the island Mujeres we went for 2nd week,great ferry crossings on reliable/regular catamarans .
The hotel/b&b is clean,comfortable,with hot water and clean towels daily.It`s built on 4 stories over looking both sides of the island from level 2 upwards.Ferry port directly opposite with a current new build of terminal under way,this to incorporate shops,luggage storage,ticket offices et al.Next door to hotel D`Gomar is an extension of the same family business renting out Golf buggies for touring this wee island.They are the customery use of transport although cars are allowed!Taxies available 24/7 at little cost(they are red in colour.The hotel is also good value for money and on subject of money some of their banks do not exchange sterling/pounds,the exchange bureau at hotel will,at a slightly lower xchange rate.
Frank the owner is one of the kindest,friendliest gentlemen i have had the pleasure to meet,him welcoming and will reassure you regards island life in any way he can be helpful.Thanks to frank our holiday was saved from the filth and filthy wet weather we had,his wee hotel aging but still in great working order!Hoping to return at easter when the rain has gone else where,Hotel D`Gomar and Isla Mujeres well worth the atlantic crossing..the ancient sights and sea are lovely!

Room Tip: corner rooms 04 on all levels have front facing balcony with tv`s and fridges.Some english/usa speak...

We had a lovely week here despite it raining nearly every day (and no our room didn't leak!). Frank makes you feel like part of the family and gives you hugs every day. He's also full of information about the island and is happy to chat away about anything. Location is good, on the main street across from the ferry terminal. They are building a new terminal across the road so if building works put you off staying somewhere then you have been warned (personally didn't bother us one bit and quite interesting to watch other countries building skills). The rooms are clean and spacious. The decor is a little bit 1970s but that doesn't matter to us as long as it's clean. We had the corner room on the third floor with massive bed, fridge, TV, aircon and a balcony overlooking the sea. The aircon is brilliant and we had to switch it off as got so cold. Our maid came in every day to make the bed and give us clean towels. There is an area with tables, free tea and coffee and a communal fridge which is a nice touch. About 5-10 minute walk from Playa Norte beach and a reasonable golf cart hire place downstairs. All in all a lovely stay. Frank brightened our spirits even through a week of rain!

We spent a week here at the end of Dec. Our second night there it poured rain all afternoon and into the night. I thought, according to the one review, I might need a snorkel set by morning. We woke up to a completely dry room. NO water whatsoever. We were also in a corner room.

The view is great, and it is so easy to find, simply walk off the ferry and across the street. Frank is the best. He gave us numerous suggestions about restaurants and things to do. Places that were out of the way that we never would have found on our own. Definitely a great place to stay.

Gracious Frank

This place reminds me of my grandfather's house in PR, clean and quaint. It's not very luxurious but if you have ever spent any significant amount of time in the islands you will feel right at home. The AC is cool and the water is hot. All of the rooms on the corners (_04) have TV's and fridges.
The location is good if you want to experience a bit more than just the beach.
It's right across the street from the ferry and around the corner from the town square where you can find all of the local food carts for lunch /dinner, or get a few things from the grocery store. The closest beach is a 3 minute walk away and Playa Norte 10 minutes. We stopped each morning to get empanisadas from the stand two streets down on our way to the beach.
