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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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 location. Beautiful garden courtyard. Convenient to beach ... enjoyed the Mamitas Beach Club affiliation. Enjoyed being on the 5th Avenue pedestrian street near restaurants, clubs and shops. Yet property was still quiet. Great staff service.

    Perfect Bestie Getaway

    This hotel is located a bit of a walk from the bus station, but if you just have a carryon it's no big deal. My room at the back was spacious and quiet, and kept very clean. The staff were helpful and conversant in Spanish and English. Including breakfast at the restaurant across the street (in the cost) made getting a start on the day easy, and waiters were attentive and pleasant. Easy 3 block walk to the Beach Club associated with the hotel.

    kind of expensive but lovely

    breakfast is included which was nice. otherwise, they don't offer you a lot in terms of amenities. the local is right on 5th ave, so it's not always quiet. some of the rooms are definitely better than others. I started in a room with only one small window and ended up paying extra to move.
