“Nice spot.”
Reviewed 9 January 2010

This place is just nice. It's clean and the rooms are spacious. Our room had a mini fridge which was really helpful. The location is also great - just one block off the main plaza. Everything is in walking distance. The bed wasn't that comfortable but not many are in the places we stayed! For the price it's a good choice.

I look forward with pleasure to returning to Posada el Moro for the month of February 2010. I have been a guest there numerous times, both winter and summer, and have no wish to explore other hotels in the area. This is the best! The staff are regulars, kind, courteous, and always helpful. Make your arrangements with Miguel, the manager, by e-mail and all will be ready for you on your arrival. The rooms are spacious and clean, all the outdoor areas are beautiful and well kept, with lots of lounging areas inside and outdoors. A good breakfast is provided, with hot coffee early in the morning! And the hotel is convenient to the beach and the town square. This is my Mexican home away from home!

We stayed here a few days before Christmas. The first room we were given hadn't been cleaned and there were still dirty towels on the bed!?
The second, more expensive room, was quiet attractive and spacious. All set, right?
Sure, until the latin dance party started next door. There was blasting music until past 2 am. The music was so loud, there was no sleeping to be had. It was as if we were at the party.
There wasn't any hot water, either.

The upshot - a nice breakfast was included.

We loved this place and this town. For those that are bored with the resort-scene. The hotel is basic but very comfortable. All is within walking distance: the beach , many great restaurants, shopping and a great mexican experience. The owner, Miguel, speaks English fluently and is ready to help with any aspect of your vacation. We also met some interesting guests at the hotel that might not have happened at the larger resorts. The hotel staff was wonderful. Miguel and staff are the selling point here. The hotel and the small town are very low-key and my experience was the perfect relaxing get-away. I can't wait to go back !

Unlike some busy resorts on the Yukatan, Puerto Morelos is a quite, sleepy little village, a perfect place to relax and get away. And the perfect spot in Puerto Morelos to kick back and escape is Posada El Moro. We celebrated our 40th Anniversary there, a time of late night Caribbean swims, afternoon snorkeling, long walks and short, side trips to the exquisite cenotes and ruins, shopping, dining, and peace. We can't wait to go back.

My girlfriend's brother got married over at Excellence Cancun Riviera--super fancy pants stuff. However, we didn't want to pay the $450 or so per night (even if it was inclusive). My sister stayed at Posada el Moro 6 months earlier, and gave it the green light.

We payed about $55 or $60 per night, and Miguel put us up in a king bed w/ Fully functioning A/C on the top floor, which was extra quiet. Miguel was SO nice. Perfectly accomodating, and very friendly. Our room and bed was cleaned daily, and Miguel was helpful in answering our questions about the area. Our room was colorful, and clean, and the bed was comfy. I have not a single qualm about the room.

The location is right there in the central part of Puerto Morelos, 2 minute walk to the beach, along w/ some very nice and funky restaurants.

One thing to note is if you're driving down from cancun or the airport, there is no traffic light to turn into Puerto Morelos. The whole highway is under construction, so it was pretty easy to just take the "Retorno" (U Turn), and then a right down the road leading to Puerto Morelos. A quick left at the end of the road, and you'll see it on the left-hand side just a little ways down.

I really liked what I saw of Puerto Morelos in general, and was very pleased with the exceptional care Miguel gave us. I noticed as we were leaving that he was welcoming some returning customers--from France, whom he greeted warmly.

If I'm ever down in that part of Mexico again, I will make sure to stay at Posada el Moro. You can't beat it for the price...

We had dinner there and opted for the local specials, which were less than $4 ea. The rice and beans and local dishes were excellant but the highlight (other than the margaritas) was the soup of the day. It was a creamy vegetable (squash as I remember) and it was remarkable. If you can't get an outside table and it's typical hot/humid weather, try for the table under the celing fan. This place is hard to bbeat for the money.
