Reviewed 2 September 2011

I stayed one night in this hotel with my girlfriend in a private ensuite double room.
Great location, very clean with nice furniture and safe box. Comfy mattress (very important!), friendly staff. The only down side is that there is no air con, only a roof fan.

This hotel is a great price, location and property. Beds are decent, staff are great. Gabriel was amazing in accomodating a surprise for us. Nice to have the option to pay with credit card at the other hotel (was not able to once becuase of the credit card machine). Will stay here again for sure. Safe and Friendly. No AC however.

We stayed in this hotel twice. It's well located and within easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops, bars, and the port where you take the ferry to and from the mainland. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable enough. We visited in December and February so the temperature is quite comfortable. The only real downside is that it can be noisy at night. Bring earplugs. This hotel is very small and very simple. The staff are friendly and courteous but they speak little English. Keep in mind that you're in Mexico and they speak Spanish. Overall, this is a good place to stay in Isla Mujeres and a very good value. We only paid US$35 per night.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Marcianito earlier this month. The hotel was clean, and although there was only a fan, the rooms were still pretty cool at night. I would recommend being on the upper 2 floors though, because the breeze was a huge asset.
We got a mini fridge brought into the room . ($15 MEX/ day) which was great as it provided a cool place to keep cervesas etc...
My only complaints during our 1 week stay were...
-It is pretty noisy until 12 am.... being so close to Ave,. Hidalgo was great, but it was noisy...
Also, at checkout, there was some errors in their billing.. significant enough to notice.. if booking online and making a paypal deposit or something,.... be sure to bring the emails/ paperwork.. or else they may try and charge you for everything.... it was a bit of a let down after our great/ amazing stay.
this may have been because of communication errors within the family staff...
The family running the hotel was friendly. and i would return. :)

Room Tip: Room 12 was great.. go for floor 2 or 3..

Location - Excellent location right in the middle of downtown Isla Mujeres. Only a 5 minute walk to the main swimming beach, Playa Norte. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby, also a small supermarket is quite close as well (HSBC bank machine can be found here). Lots of scooter/moped and golf cart hire places nearby as well (we recommend Pepe's on Hidalgo for mopeds).

Room - Small room, but we had no expectation of anything larger. At the end of the day, it is a budget hotel. Bathroom was small, but no complaints at all. Room was cleaned every day. Overall, very clean room. Other reviews have said it was noisy, but we didn't have a problem with it at all.

Service - Very friendly and helpful. Didn't speak english, but this wasn't a problem for us (and we know no Spanish). You can't use a credit card to pay for your room. We didn't have any cash on us when we arrived, and they let us check into our room and pay later.

Other/Extra - We would recommend hiring a scooter/moped and going to see the entire island. Isla Mujeres is a great place for a relaxing holiday, and this little hotel suited us perfectly.

We chose this hotel for its proxmity to all of the main tourist attractions. It is in the heart of downtown. A small hotel with no internet access but another guest told me for $4.00usd/day, you can hook into a store next door that has internet. I chose to just go to restaurants with wifi. The room was adequate, cleaned daily with good water pressure. As per usual budget hotels, firm beds, thin small bath towels, white bar soap and flat pillows. All this, I was expectring. It seems like it is run by a family who also lives on the premises. All the tile floors were sparkling clean. I think Grandma is the cleaning lady because she was seen on several occasions busy cleaning. Coffee is served in the lobby in the mornings. There is no filtered water so you must provide your own. Very friendly staff. No pool but you are close to playa norte so no need for a pool. It was noisy with the numerous bars around us but I think the weekend had locals partying to late in the night. There was very limited time for quiet sleeping so I used my itunes on my laptop to fall asleep. No complaints, this hotel was in the middle of the action. It had a TV and no a/c, but while so close to the water, there is a always a breeze and a/c is not needed. There is an ceiling fan. A nice thing with this room was the safe in the room. You don’t see this too often in the budget hotels. I would stay here again if I visit Isla Mujeres.We arrived to Cancun airport and took the local bus. Catch it just outside terminal the second lane on the right to the main downtown bus station. From there you can take a taxis for 50 pesos to the ferry terminal. We took the Ultra Mar ferry but it cost 140 pesos each. It is a very quick trip from Cancun but our return trip we used the Car ferry which you have to walk a ways pass the ultra mar but it only costs 70 pesos each. Many of the locals use this method. The accomodations aren't as nice but it got us there and I am all about budget adventurers.
