POSADA MARIPOSA. The hotel is divided into three levels with 23 comfortable rooms. Nature and rustic style and young staff.

Near to different attractions for enjoying day and night moments, restaurants, bars and shops.

Superbly located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, right on the famous 5th avenue, this vibrant pedestrian street full of color and life invites you to discover the magic behind this charming and multicultural Mexican town which once was a small fishing village.

Just a few steps from the turquoise water of the caribbean sea and the white sand beaches, Posada Mariposa Boutique Hotel is the ideal place to stay, close to restaurants offering Mexican and international menus, coffee shops, bars, jewellery stores, clothes stores, malls, plazas and more.

Each room is decorated with authentic Mexican Style, made with the traditional Mexican textile mill and also solid cedar furniture.
Located in the heart of the hotel, is a uniquely decorated garden with exotic tropical touch that gives a harmonious essence to the lobby.

    Gizele was the best part

    Gizele, at reception was the best part of our stay. She spoke great English, was super friendly, and said everything with a warm smile. Our room was located on the ground floor where you could hear the reception phone ring. The hotel interior is gorgeous, but the room fell short. I also want to say that Playa Del Carmen was disappointing in general and next time I'll skip it all together.

    Great Boutique Hotel

    We had a great stay at Posada Mariposa. It's no frills, but it's so perfectly located that you won't spend much time in the room anyway. It's clean, simple, and the staff was lovely. It's about 5 minutes from the beach and steps away from great foods/ bars. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

    If you go to Tulum and have to choose between either a cenote or going snorkeling, go with the cenote. We snorkeled and didn't see much of anything. Wish we had gone with cenote.

    Cute Hotel!!!

    The hotel is on the main strip in Playa Del Carmen but its lobby and rooms are somewhat secluded and tucked away. The rooms were not fancy but clean. Great open-air lobby and stair area with lots of vegetation. It's about 2 blocks from the beach and shopping and dining are just steps out the door. If you're looking for something cute and cheap, this is the place!

    My First Trip to Playa del Carmen

    good vacation experience, the hotel was right to everywhere; we liked it a lot; the bathroom probably was the only thing we did not like.

    Hemingway-esque Hacienda

    A fantastic place to hang your hat when vacationing in Playa. It is on the north end of La Quinta, far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of the clubs to ensure a good night's sleep. Excellent pizza slices right across the street and a delicious continental breakfast each morning at La Vagabounda. Rooms have all the amenities - TV, AC, fridge, safe - and great little lounge areas for cocktails. Best of all, the Mariposa is only two blocks from Mamita's Beach. Great value, great staff and service. Highly recommended.

    Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

    Head a bit further north on La Quinta (around 28th and 30th St) and you will find great Italian, a delicious fresh seafood joint, Babe's Noodle Bar for Thai dishes, and 1847 for traditional Mexican (very affordable).

    Nice and Chill

    I went there for 22 days. It was a very nice place. I would stay there again. The staff was nice and it was right on 5th avenue.

    Small but nice, great location.

    The staff was very helpful. The room was very small, just a full-size bed, but it was clean. If you are early-to-bed people (like us), the restaurant downstairs could get a little noisy later in the night. This is a nice, but very basic hotel. This is basically a place to sleep.
