Hotel D'Gomar
Ranked #32 of 37 Hotels in Isla Mujeres
Reviewed 1 February 2010

We only had 1 night on Isla Mujeres and had to leave early the next morning, so we chose this hotel because it's right across the road from the water taxi. We were told $35US for the room but paid 420 pesos...not sure about that conversion, but there's free water and a book exchange in the lobby, and golf cart rentals in the same building. The room was nice enough but with only 1 small window that looked over the street. It was noisy but also in the middle of the action. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. For the money spent it was worth it, though I think I would prefer to stay at one of the other boutique hotels along the market streets next time. Good budget hotel, tidy and convenient. There was a great common area that overlooked the ocean as well.

My first stay was for a month and I have stayed multiple times since. The Hotel is clean,comfortable and safe. The location is right across from the ferry, a few blocks to the most beautiful part of the beach Playa Norte, and is a few blocks from Hildago, yet not right where you hear all of the noise.
Frank is wonderful and amazing and even if I am not staying on the island I always go by and talk with him. He will help you with anything you need and knows everything about the area and will direct you in what things to do.
Coffee service is offered in the mornings. The housekeepers are trustworthy and keep the place spotless.

We stayed there 3 nights.
These are the positives:
Across the street from the ferry terminal(save time and money for transportation)
Close to restaurants,bars ,Hidalgo pedestrian street,a few minutes from beach,golf cart rentals,shops,bank,taxi stand
Relatively clean
Nice patio for free cofee and tea on first floor
Helpful owner
Fridge in some rooms with drinks for $1.50 u.s.
Tv in some rooms with o.k. choice of channels
View of ocean from some rooms(although these rooms may have a bit more noise from the street below)
Price
Strong air conditioners,although the one in our room was loud and cycled on and off very often
King size bed in some rooms although ours was very very firm(o.k. if you like if that way)
Extra blankets in room
Wi-fi in lobby and some parts of first floor(nothing above that)

Negatives
Appearance needs facelift(paint,some new furnishings,some repairs and renovations)
Street noise from some rooms(ask for inside room if this disturbs you but you will not have an ocean view
No elevator with four floors(o.k . if you`re fit or ask for a lower floor room)
Musty smell in some bathrooms at times(probably difficult to prevent with the climate)
Low water pressure at times
No telephone(although some people may call that a positive)
Cheap locks on doors(although there seemed to be someone at the lobby 24 hrs for security
Noisy air conditioner in our room
Clerk at front desk seemed like a nice young man but watched cartoons all day and seemed to get angry when asked any questions.
They would not accept my reservation with a credit card I had to go through the hassle and cost of Western Union.They seem to accept Visa when you^re there.

Overall the hotel is o.k if you`re on a tight budget ,don`t spend much time in the room and can accept some of the other negatives

VERY IMPORTANT WARNING IF YOU RENT A SCOOTER.
I rented one from JOAQUIN SCOOTER RENTALS and ended up in a hospital with a broken collar bone,bruised ribs and cuts everywhere.
Most rental shops want tro squeeze every penny out of you and don`t care about your safety.
You should check the following before paying:
Headlight,brake lights,speedometer,turn signals,horn,gas cap,brakes ,steering and body damage.They have no laws to maintain their vehicles.If you have an accident even if it`s because of a problem with their scooters they will have the police stop you from leaving without paying them whatever they ask for.A police office stayed with me at he hospital until I was forced to pay up even though the vehicle was defective and no damage was done to it only to me.You`re only other option is to hire a lawyer and probably spend months fighting it.I would also suggest that you make a copy of your drivers licence and laminate it since they take it when you pick up the scooter.This way it doesn`t matter if they don`t return it to you.

We have stayed at the Gomar for three years. It's walking distance to every place on the north end, and the bus stops across the street. Frank the manager is a gem.

We had a great 3 nights at this hotel.

We didn't book, just walked in, and they had plenty of rooms available.

The first room was ok but a bit old. The door didn't work properly so we were moved to a different room which was heaps better! We were at the end of the third floor so we had a great view of the ocean. There is a communal balcony tucked at the end which was right outside our room - but noone seemed to know about it so we had the balcony to ourselves!

The room also had a fridge, air con and a very roomy shower. At only 45usd a night it was a bargain. The staff were so very friendly and laid back - would love to come back here again!

Late in reviewing but had a great time at this simple hotel. Located right next to ferry stop our room was large, simple and clean. Short walk to beaches and town. Frank very helpful with requests. The hotel reflected Isla - a simple relaxed atmoshpere with no pretensions. We found Isla a great place to relax and finish our 3 week holiday around Yucatan.
