What a fantastic, warm and friendly hotel! Kate and Safari were very hospitable and I found this to be the perfect place for my first solo vacation. I have traveled to Isla once before but this was my first time staying at Las Palmas.
The rooms were very basic, but clean and had what you needed. The general set-up of the hotel was great; there is a courtyard area on the ground floor, a small shaded sitting area on the second floor and a beautiful roof-top deck with a small dipping pool. Before I came, I didn't think I would utilize much of this, but I ended up using all of it!
Another wonderful thing about Las Palmas is location, location, location.....Hotel Las Palmas is located 1 block away from Playa Norte and 1 block away from Avenida Hidalgo. It's so close to everything, but far enough that you don't hear any of the street noise at night. (Not that Isla is loud at night, but you don't hear a lot of cars or people, etc.).
If you're looking for a super luxurious, all inclusive type hotel, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a basic, affordable hotel with very friendly and knowledgable owners, stay here! This was the perfect atmosphere for my first solo vacation and I met so many wonderful people while I was there. I'm already planning my next trip back to this wonderful hotel!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Las Palmas is your home away from home on Isla Mujeres, tucked away from the hustle-bustle of Cancun. We are a family run hotel (three generations of women, mother-daughter and grand-daughter). Naturally, our place is a very unpretentious accommodation with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We have many comfy communal areas, including a rooftop with a plunge pool. You'll find lounge chairs, hammocks, and tables with chairs to welcome you after a day at the beach - possibly an afternoon siesta. Our communal kitchen is also on the terrace and fully equipped. Our shaded deck on our second level, overlooking the street and is a great spot for people watching or reading a good book.We are located in the heart of the downtown. The beautiful turquoise of the Caribbean and powdery sand beach at Playa Norte are a block away (5 min walk). Just around the corner is Hidalgo Avenue, filled with cuisine from all over the world, live music, and friendly locals and tourists alike. We're directly across from the municipal market with four "loncheria" eating stalls, housing tasty, economical breakfast-lunch meals, as well as fresh squeezed juices.We have a hotel dog, Cachito (hypoallergenic, rasta-hair poodle) who is always ready for a stroll. ... more less
