We stayed here for our anniversary and were looking for somewhere secluded and inexpensive. Beforehand, the hotel was helpful answering questions about directions and accommodations in English. Once in Puerto Morelos, we realized the directions were completely wrong and no one working at the hotel spoke fluent English the entire time. We had to rely on our little Spanish. The room was not fully air conditioned, only the bedroom had a/c, so about 1/3 of the suite had a/c. That meant the living room, bathroom, and kitchen were very hot and you had to leave the doors open to get any air flow. It had a beautiful view and was inexpensive; however, on the weekends and holidays locals swarm the beaches and are there in large groups crowding the beach. Many locals vacation here. The family beside us in a one bedroom suite consisted of 11 family members all staying in the room who were loud and could look into our suite while on their balcony and the stairs - not very private. The lack of a pool and lounge chairs were also huge negatives. There were lounge chairs, but they were snagged early in the morning with towels from other people staying there, even though they were not used by the family most of the time. Next time, I will spend the money to stay at an all-inclusive. There are a few inexpensive restaurants, but most are nearly U.S. prices and it would have been more relaxing to be at an AI with a fully air-conditioned room, pool, and drinks and food closer and included. For the price, I think we would've even saved money getting an all-inclusive. The staff was nice and tried to be helpful, but the limited English really was a minus.
