A very economically viable option to being a part of Isla Mujeres

We were close enough to walk from the ferry at Puerta Juerez. We took the ADO bus $5.00 (out the door of the airport all the way to the right ). Close to the port, then on to a high speed ferry. All this well worth the trip just to see Isla! This hotel served very well it's purpose. The restaurant served good food. Didn't find any real economical restaurants anywhere! The WiFi in the lobby only was questionable but they did offer it in their restaurant and in the bar.

Posada Del Mar

The Posada Del Mar is a budget hotel with budget service and accommodations. Upon check-in, our room had black mold in bedroom and bathroom area on the ceiling and wall. We asked to be moved (and tipped well) to get another room. The second room was nicer in the newer of the new buildings. Still these are very plain basic rooms. Hot water is hit or miss. The bed was very uncomfortable - lumps and hard. The maid service was good - I made it a point to find the maid and tip her well several times during our stay. We heard from others who complained about bugs (roaches) in rooms and very little done by management to rectify. The overall look and feel is of a worn down hotel. They do have a nice outdoor bar with a friendly bar tender. The location is great: walking distance from ferry, right across the street from the beach, easy walk to Hidalgo Ave or Playa Norte and several local restaurants. We would not go back to this hotel nor recommend it. We booked our trip at the last minute during high season so there were few offerings available. We've stayed at other locations around Isla that were much better for just a bit more.

Posada Del Mar - just OK

We were able to check in early. However, first room had terrible black mold in bathroom and bedroom ceiling. We were changed to another room that was much more clean. The hotel is basic 2 to 2.5 star quality. Wifi only in the lobby. Rooms are average and somewhat worn down (even the new buildings). Staff and maid service were OK - we tipped them well. There is a nice outdoor bar on site. And the location is quite good - walking distance to beach across the street and to several bars and restaurants in town. Not too far from the ferry dock to walk as well (no need for a taxi). Overall we had a wonderful trip, though would not stay at this hotel again. We have stayed at other hotels on Isla that were much nicer for just a bit more cost. This was a last minute trip in March 2015 and there weren't many other options.

Great value and location!

Hotel was everything we needed and nothing we didn't. Great location across the street from beach. Nice pool and bar area. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Private balcony was nice to sit and enjoy a cold beer on! Make sure to book the new section as the rooms are updated. I left my passport in the room on accident when we checked out. The staff was nice enough to retrieve it and save it for me. Safe to say that the staff is honest & friendly.

Surprisingly nice

So after reading the many mixed reviews I was nervous about what we were getting into. I'm not sure how reviews can swing so wildly from good to poor on the same place. Maybe the key is staying in the newer section as we did. We found it to be a great stay for a 12 day visit. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, and a hot shower. There was nothing in our room that indicated old, worn down, dirty, or any of the other negatives we've seen. We asked for extra pillows and blanket after the first night and received them. The AC worked great. We didn't interact with the staff much other than a "hola" in the hallway. It may sound a little corny but the different towel creations the maid left on the bed everyday were pretty neat. The pool and area was clean and nice. It is hard to find any negatives with our stay. If I had one, it may be the room layout is funky. The bathroom is open to the bedroom area. It's hard to describe but if you're laying in bed, you can see the person in the shower, at least above the shoulders, and the shower glass doesn't go to the ceiling. As we are husband and wife, I didn't mind the shower show everyday, but I can envision circumstances where that would not work. Also, if you turn the light on in the bathroom....say in the middle of the night, it lights up the whole room. I don't know why they chose that layout other to combat moisture. I guess the room airs out much quicker that way. They leave the unoccupied rooms open for just that reason. So that was the only odd thing about our visit. If you're good with the layout, an awesome stay. Super close to town and beach. The location really couldn't have been better. We had a great stay and we'll do it again next year.

spring break hotel

The location can't be beat. That's the good part. The only good part. Sheets are very coarse and rather stained. Furniture very shabby. Toilet had a huge piece of porcelain missing from the bowl. Bathroom had an odd open window in the shower. Much to my horror, in the light of day, I saw it opened into the hallway. Door to room had a huge crack at the bottom, so we heard everyone returning in the night. We ended up shoving a blanket in the space to keep out the light and noise. Pool looked like it hadn't been painted in 10 years. We checked out after one night. I guess if I was 18 I'd be ok with all that.

Isla Mujeres in February

We landed at Posada Del Mar through a package deal. It's hard to go wrong on Isla and Posada was fine but during our time we found there might be places that were as nice or nicer for a better price...though you may not be able to find them as easily online. Posada del Mar is a relatively big operation for Isla but is nice and laid back. Our room was as promised as were other amenities. If you will arrive later in the evening, it may be hard to find someone to let you in your room and there is internet only in the lobby. Otherwise, there we met many people who come to Posada year after year and love it. It's got great views, nice little balconies, pool and restaurant on site, and they keep the rooms clean. Overall, fine.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

All these are on the main pedestrian street that runs down the middle of town: Los del Pescado - Apparently a local chain fish taco place but the prices were rock bottom and the tacos were great! It's up some sketchy stairs overlooking the zocolo. Adelita Tequilaria - Only drinks, no food. But, 2 for 1 cocktails and free tequila. Yes, free tequila. And the tequila was actually pretty good. A local brand that I wish we could get in the US. A nice way to end each day. Lola Valentina - Awesome vegetarian food. Just amazing but a bit pricier for Isla.

I would NOT recommend this hotel

Unfriendly staff. No hairdryer available for borrowing and when I asked they were unfreindly and unapologetic about it. Dirty, shabby and definitely not worth the price. Wifi only in the lobby which is small and often not enough seating space because of it. Lousy hotel.

We will stay again

Posada Del Mar is perfect for location. Walking distance to everything: beach, restaurants, coffee in the morning, shopping and bars. The pool is nice, but we spent most of our time on the beaches. Our room was clean and we had no issues throughout our 5 day stay. This is defiantly a no frills hotel, but for the price - that's what we were expecting. PS. the hotel bar has the best margarita's.

Bang for the Buck

For an international value hotel, the Posada Del Mar is a great place to spend your time and money. The hotel itself is average for what you spend, and the hardest part is they can only give you 1 room key. However they are great with holding your key for you at the front desk if you have multiple people in your room who need a key. The staff is Excellent and friendly, and the location is incredibly convenient to everything you will want to do on the island. Their pool and outdoor restaurant / bar are awesome. They will let you play your own music, and it is a great spot to hang out in conjunction with the beach. The internet only works in the lobby, but trust me...its not that big of a deal. Also you'll want to spring for the upgraded rooms, they are completely worth paying extra for. I would highly recommend staying there if you are looking for a great value!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

There is an INFOTOUR shack in front of the hotel with the BEST value around for a Snorkel Tour. They charge $35/hr for up to 8 people per boat with multiple boats available and take you on a 4.5 hr tour. There are 2 reef stops and the underwater museum, then they'll feed you fresh grilled fish on a great beach with awesome multiple attractions! Great guys, check them out!!!
