This was our first stay on Isla Mujeres and this hotel was a great introduction. We will definitely go back to this place. In fact, we are already planning our next trip and hope to bring family as well.
We had flight problems and got to the hotel at 11:30 PM instead of mid-afternoon as intended. We had been able to stay in touch with the owner by email during our flight and she kindly waited up for us. We were surprised to find that the room had air-conditioning. We did not use/need it the rest of the week, but it sure was welcome that first night. After she showed us the room and explained everything, she disappeared for a couple minutes and then returned with water and COLD BEER. We knew right away that we were in the right place.
The owners speak English as their native language which was helpful. The room and indeed, the entire hotel were very well kept - looked almost new. The roof had a number of lounge chairs and even a dipping pool which we used daily. When we sat outside our room on a comfortable couch to read late at night, their quiet dog kept guard over us.
The hotel was just a short block away from the main drag. Far enough to avoid the noise, and close enough to get there in a minute or two. We were a short 4-5 minute walk from a stunning beach. You could walk out a football field's length and still only have water up to your chest. Lots of fish bumping into your legs. And the food service on the beach was great.
The hotel has free wi-fi service. Be assured that the pictures on the hotel's web-site do not do it justice. It is even better than the web pictures.
This is certainly the best place to stay on the island. Quiet friendly service, spotless rooms and facilities, access to everything. We will be back!
- 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
