Kate and Safari were there to welcome us at arrival, answer all questions about places to try authentic food, and to accomodate our basic needs. The hotel was very basic, but very well maintained, with a spectacular rooftop deck and courteous guests. We came to Las Palmas based on recommendation and were very happy with our choice. The location is right across from the local market to purchase basic breakfast and lunch items, or to get authentic breakfasts, even on Sundays. It's two blocks from North beach, which makes it great for walking, and it's one to two blocks from all the street noise at night. I'd totally recommend the downtown location as it met our needs for walking, bike rental and moped/golf cart rental, and close proximity to the ferry. It's totally worth the price, but you should know walking in that it's not designed to boast an all inclusive feel. It's certainly not shabby or rustic though. Very well maintained. We also had a fridge in the room as well and amenities to cook if we wanted.
- 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
