“Fantastic little hotel in the centre of Playa Del Carmen.”
Reviewed 19 March 2013 via mobile

What a great little hotel our dive shop "Mexico Blue Dream" hooked us up with for our short stay in Playa!
The rooms are great, there were free Internet, two Queen Size Beds, TV, Air Con, free coffee and water!
The receptionist helped us out with iPhone chargers and everybody was very friendly and smiling!
Even though the Hotel is in the middle of 5. Av. there was no noise and we slept very well!
The centre of the hotel is a very cozy botanic garden, which gives a jungle like feel and looks lovely!
We enjoyed this very much and can recommend it to everybody!

We will be coming back soon! We stayed in a couple hotels in Playa but this is our favorite. Very quaint and the staff is so nice. There are no ocean views but everything about this place is so nice that it does not matter.

We stayed here for 3 nights in mid February 2013 and had a wonderful time. When we arrived late at night we were greeted by friendly reception and given a lovely room. The location was great - right on 5th avenue, but quiet and comfortable enough for a good night rest. The room was clean the whole place felt very safe. I would highly recommend Hotel Posada Mariposa for your travels to Playa Del Carmen.

Room Tip: We had a room on the upper level which was a nice sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the 5th Av...

Room was just as in the photo. Very clean and the location can't be beat. We had Junior suite #10. Excelent location . The only one on the roof so we basically had our room and roof all to ourselves. A/C was very quiet and worked well thought we didn't use it that much. The staff was very accommodating and housekeeping was very good as well. They said that they were working on upgrades and improving the property and I think they are succeeding. We will stay there again.

Hotel is located at the 5th Avenue (main street). All shops and restaurants are just near by. 5 minutes walk to the beach. Hotel is old, beds are hard, hotel smells bad. Clean towels and linen. Air-con works ok but it's impossible to have the settings right, too cold or too hot. Staff is nice and helpful. No swimming pool. Clean basic hotel, good location.

While the rooms were simple, we were right on Avenida 5. Step out, and walk down the street and you are at a Mexican beach town version of Bourbon Street.

The breakfast was included in our price, but it was ordinary (at a restaurant across the street). If you can pay less and eat on your own, you'd be better off.

The service was excellent, so it ended up being a very pleasant stay for us. Plus, the Manager gave us a recommendation for La Cueva del Chango, which was quite a find and we ended up eating there a few times.

I stayed at Posada Mariposa for a week in suite #20, on the second floor facing 5ta Avenida. It had a kitchen/living room (gas stove, microwave, blender, fridge) with 2 twin beds and a flatscreen TV. The bedroom had a large double bed, lots of storage space and an AC unit. Both rooms had ceiling fans and windows you could open to let air circulate. The mattresses were on the hard side (which I like), the sheets were clean, no bed bugs or any other bugs for that matter. The bathroom is pretty basic but has a nice shelf for toiletries. There was a safe in the hallway closet (you have to pay a deposit of 50USD or 500 pesos for the lock and key).

I liked:
* the staff was friendly and helpful
* the availability of beach towels (no limits)
* the discounts at Mamita's beach club
* the cleaning service (punctual, even cleaned my dishes if I forgot them)
* the location, even if it's on 5ta, it's quiet at night and it's very very close to the beach; there's even a 24h deli downstairs
* the full size fridge, with freezer, and the gas stove
* the covered terrace outside my door

I didn't like:
* the room decor could have been better; it was drab and could have used a fresh coat of brighter paint
* the bathroom does not have a fan, so the whole suite was quite humid
* there is a window in the shower and it does not have a curtain; people climbing the stairs could look at me while I showered

At 60 CAD/night for a large but basic suite, it found it was a great value!

Room Tip: Front facing room is noisy from 6AM to 11PM Bedroom close to front stairs tends to be noisy (guests...
