This hotel and location feels like Mexico which is getting harder and harder to come by! It's a short enjoyable walk to the beach. We started our 10 day visit to riviera maya here and loved it. Rooms basic but clean with quaint small pool which our kids 5&3 yo enjoyed.
Great breakfasts and close to great grilled chicken place for dinners.
It is impossible for me to review this place without contrasting it to hotel jashita in tulum where we spent the next 7 nights. jashita was 7 times more expensive per night which of course we knew and yes the rooms there were fancier and more comfortable. But the 'upgrade' was not worth the price- which meant nicer accommodations with tons of pretension and like of Mexican ambience and food! Some one else mentioned they did not mind the lack of Mexican food at jashita bc they don't like "mushy beans" and melted cheese - well I guess that's bc they have not really tried Mexican food which is very diverse. Get out of the gringo resorts to get a better feel for real Mexico at a place like el Moro and puerto Morelos!
The expensive jashita gave us 2 small bottles of water for a family of 4 per day and charged for extra bottles-- all that at$375/night. Contrast this to el Moro which stocked our room with huge bottled water jugs at closer to $70/night! I just hate it when expensive hotels nickel and dime you!
Long story short- stay at el Moro for old Mexico charm, proximity to gorgeous beach, and great value for the money!
