Hotel Margaritas Cancun2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
If your looking for a nice inexpensive hotel while vacationing in Cancun, the Hotel Margaritas might be for you. It's located downtown and not too far from the business district. The hotel staff was courteous, the room was clean and it was easy to catch cabs. It appears that this hotel is part of the Adhara Hotel since it is all one building that has been blocked off. The pool is in the center and costs a buck to use, if you're staying on the Margaritas side. We had breakfast on the Adhara side by exiting the Margaritas and entering the Adhara front entrance. We enjoyed a nice breakfast buffet each morning $$. It's not that far from the beach and the price was right. We will probably be staying here again next year.
When we came to Hotel Margaritas, we were welcomed by complimentary 24-hour security and so-so parking. It is 2 blocks from a great market, Mercado 23, which was amazing. The workers were friendly, and the pool was great, with lights, palm trees, a bar in the pool that we swam up to, and a nice restaurant. However, there were no washcloths there, but that seemed to be throughout mexico, and I warn you, the water tastes TERRIBLE. I couldn't drink it. But overall, it was a nice stay there, and we recommend it.
Rooms are super clean, spacious For the money is worth it, it shares the facilities of Adhara Hotel, this is the Small version, you pay a small fee to use the pool wich they reimburse you as Credit for meals and drinks. Free WiFi Location is not the best it's in a part of town that feels like empty, but taxis and uber Are always at hand and accessories to malls and beach is just 5 min drive. Great fresh coffee and you get a 10% off if you pay for breakfast in advance. Over all good value for a weekend stay
i was more than pleased with my families stay. we stayed for 2 weeks and everything well perfect. Marco, the night security guard was amazing and helped us so much. he was a real treat to meet. Lourdes, the housekeeper was on the ball and kept our room spotless. she was really nice as well. the front desk was so helpful and resolved any issues within literally 3-4 minutes ( air conditioner turned off by itself) the staff at the restaurant were so nice and were always joking with my son. i would definitely stay here again.
The hotel was a good place for a 1 night stay before flying home. Traveled with my boyfriend, we gad a nice evening at the pool even though we had to pay $50 pesos each. A little noisy, we could hear everything happening in the hallway. We were very tired that we quickly went to sleep. AC was nice and cold, beds were ok, bathroom was decent and security was great!
Let's start with the positives The hotel location is great.. Its central but not on any of the main streets so you dont have to deal with the hustle and bustle of downtown Cancun..that is as good it gets. The rooms are spartan, walls must be razor thin because you can hear persons conversing in the hallway and in the rooms next door. They charge you something like $3 to use the pool next door which ironically is their sister property WOW! They say the wi-fi is free but it hardly ever works and is spotty at best. On the eve of my departure from the hotel to the airport, i decided to doublecheck my airplane departure time but the wi-fi was acting up again so i rushed to the front desk for assistance..i was the only one there but the guy behind the desk just ignored my presence, however when some Europeans arrived and were standing behind me he quickly stopped what he was doing greeted them and asked them how could he be of assistance..mind you i am still standing there. Not wanting to create a scene in front of the new arrivals i waited until they had checked in and departed the lobby before lamblasting the receptionist guy. He apologized profusely but then instructs me that i could access the wi-fi of their sister hotel next door but for a small fee. I immediately left the lobby and found a nearby internet cafe where i without fuss or a hassle, downloaded my flight information, returned to the hotel, retrieved my luggage and let them all know i would be writing several reviews about the treatment meted out to me. NEVER AGAIN!!
We liked this hotel. We didn't want a place in the touristy Hotel Zone. We wanted a hotel that was closer to the local food and markets. If you just want to be on the beach, you should probably find a place in the hotel zone. The rooms are spartan but clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I really liked the beds. They are very firm but a little soft. There is a flat screen TV. I think the only english channel was CNN so we didn't watch it but we had a good (free) Wifi signal in our room so we streamed Netflix late at night on my laptop. Oddly, when you stream Netflix from Mexico there are some different TV shows and some newer movies that are not available on US Netflix. The hotel gives you a couple free bottles of water and there is a small safe in the room. I was able to wriggle my 15 inch Apple laptop into the safe. This hotel is pretty noisy. You can hear people moving in the hallways and in the rooms around you. It didn't bother us that much but we are city dwellers and kind of used to it. We were also pretty wiped out from the days activities so we slept fine. But if you are a light sleeper this is probably not the hotel for you. Also, there is no elevator, but the stairway is very wide and easy to use. There are no small washcloths so bring some if you need them. The pool is part of the adjoining Hotel Adhara which appears to be a little nicer. You can get a day pass for 50 pesos (about $2.50 USD). We were told you could apply the fee to a drink at the pool bar. The hotel does have an affiliated beach club in the hotel zone. So, you can go to the beach. They have a shuttle that will take you there in the morning and pick you up in the afternoon. Or you can take a taxi on your own schedule (or Uber which is new to Mexico). We were too busy to hit the beach club but we did use Uber and it was very inexpensive. There is an OXXO (convenience) store just a few hundred feet to the south that has an ATM and cheap bottled water (about 15 pesos for a big 1.5 liter bottle). But just before you get there is an amazing taco place called Taqueria Coapenitos. I live in Chicago and we have a lot of great taco places, but this place is FANTASTIC and very inexpensive. There is a big supermarket a couple blocks south. There are also a lot of shops and currency exchanges to the south along Tulum Ave. At night the locals gather at a park called Parque Las Palapas which is about a 15 min walk to the south west. There are a lot of super cheap taco stands (3 tacos for 40 pesos about $2 USD) and dessert stands in a boisterous atmosphere. This hotel is a good value for the hearty traveler.
We are still in this hotel and it is actually a two stars hotel so you cannot pretend too much. The room we have is really noisy because of the air conditioning that you cannot turn off otherwise the room becomes too humid, the water of bathroom smells terrible and since we are in the back of the building in front of a garden the room was full of mosquitos . You have to pay to enter the swimming pool which belongs to the Adhara Hotel connected with our hotel. Unfortunately we have to stay here three more nights .At least the staff is nice.
I spent three nights in the hotel during Christmas. I think because of holiday season, the price we got (~$80 per night) is not that cheap, but relative cheap when compared to other hotels. Our room is in the first floor, so I feel everything is damp. Except the humidity, everything is fine. The hotel has several security guards. When you enter the hotel, they will ask the room number. The stuffs are very helpful.
Thanks to the team (to Dulce) how was very nice and help me to organise my trip.!! Evering was good. Break fast simple but nice Quiet place in down town. Nice place to visit the place around. Linked to an other hotel (you can ask to use swimming pool, bbar... For cheap)
