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.

    staff can ruin your vacation

    Everything could have been great if not asking for hot water would have made a big deal. Just up front the hotel is offering coffee and water for free. So if you expect hot coffee you might also expect hot water. Just to make that clear all the staff but one was very nice with us, but one person is enough to ruin your stay. Here are some of the answers we got from this specific person after asking for a cup(we brought our own) of hot water: "No we don't have hot water, just cold". After asking again we were told "to wait 4 hours because the water maker is broke". After this we were told to "just walk to the restaurant across to ask for hot water". Which we did and of course were declined as we found out later this was simply a lie. We confronted the front desk with the facts and yes they apologized and offered us some compensation we in the end did not except as it was not our goal to get something for free but make our point.

    Lovely little boutique hotel on a main street

    We found this little hidden gem by booking same day and loved it! The lobby is gorgeous and you can walk to anything and everything you need, including the beach. Great little hotel.

    Great time at the Mariposa

    we spent 2 night of our Honeymoon at the Mariposa, they were so kind they have prepared special flower arrangements for us. the atmosphere is really nice both in the rooms and outside in their beautiful courtyard. the reception staff is multilingual and extremely polite and the location is very convenient right on the quinta avenida.

    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.

    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).
