“Unspoiled Yucatan, seabirds, plus comfortable beds!”
Reviewed 29 December 2007

If your idea is heaven is resort row in Cancun, you can stop reading now.

But if you love real Mexico and long for unspoiled places and people, you've hit the jackpot. And Hotel San Felipe is a big part of what makes this destination special.

The hotel is full of character and sea breezes, but it's spotless, with excellent, comfortable beds. Just outside the hotel, fishing boats come and go. The air is full of birds. Across the lagoon you can spot flamingos. There is nothing to do -- except, of course, watch the spectacular birdlife, gather seashells on the beaches, fish, talk to the lovely locals, explore the Ria Lagartos ecosystem. I guess it all depends on your idea of fun. I call it heaven.

Your host is Jesus. He doesn't speak much English, but if you know Spanish, he's a treasure trove of information. He will also take you in his boat for fishing or beaches. His wife runs the hotel and she does a great job. The rooms have fluffy clean towels and bottled water, and I must repeat this: real comfortable beds. She will prepare a decent breakfast or supper for you, not haute cuisine but good and tasty.

To book a room, you need to either call or send an email to hotelsf@hotmail.com. Ask for a room overlooking the boat harbor. If you want more info about this place, feel free to contact me!

As the other reviewer outlined it, there is very little to do in San Felipe. It is nonetheless a charming little place and you can catch the wonderful ruins of Ek Balam on the way there or back.

There actually are 3 or 4 restaurants on the mainstreet in town but they are not open after 5 PM on Sunday so watch out for that day.

We stayed in one of the three third floor suites. They had ac, an excellent view of the water from the room via old fashioned wrap around windows. and there was a steep stone with wooden railed staircase that leads up to your own outdoor terrace overlooking the water. If the place is crowded you will be staring at your neighbors over the 3 ft wall that seperates the three terraces but that can be a good way to make friends.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Clean, economical. And just walk into town (1.5 blocks) and along the waterfront and you'll see all the restaurants as the waterfront is only about 4 blocks long.

Stayed April 2006
