3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Close to everything nice people outside the hotel very good food close to the hotel and activities

The room was musty smelling , curtains had mold. Fridge was worthless. Had to put a 100 dollar deposit to use safe. Ask the front desk man several times to have our water checked could barely stand to shower due to no hot water FINALLY on our 6th day they came and "fixed" it then ONLY had hot water. Got locked out of room one day due to door swelling

rude check in clerk demanded cash below avg room - needs updating could be cleaner bar closes too early restaurant was open no one used it....wonder why

We have stayed a Posada del Mar four times throughout the past 4 years. The location is amazing, close to the beach in the heart of Isla. The rooms are basic and clean(ish). The pool is great, and Romy's bar is wonderful. The staff is unhelpful and treats you as an annoyance. Wifi very rarely works and when it does, is only available in lobby. There are MUCH better options on the island for the same price.

Bathroom had a leaky shower and the water dripped 24/7. No safe in the room. Bed comfort was ok, room clean. Staff were great. Great pool and pool bar. Patio was great. Had a great time.

Not a bad buffet place to stay. Beds weren't too comfortable, hot water pretty scarce,and sometimes no water for a bit. The rooms were nice and clean. I would recommend it for a good price.

The location is very convenient and close to the beach. The bar on site makes excellent drinks and has happy hour from 5-7 each night. The pool area is small, but nice! Most of our time was spent by the ocean rather than the pool. We stayed in the renovated section and would definitely recommend that.

Common areas are nice. Nice pool. Great convenient location. Rooms could use some updating.

Love this hotel...been coming for many years. Staff makes you feel at home. Breakfasts overlooking the beach at Penguinas restaurant are great. Rooms are basic but clean and fine...but you really can't beat the location location location. Quick walk into town, to the ferry, to the great restaurants and just across the street from the beach.

My wife went to the hotel bar alone for a drink. 3 hours later she was under the influence of alcohol and possibly something else. I observed her being grouped by the bartenders. The night was horrible.

Hotel was as expected at price point. Across street from a great beach and within a short walk of ferry, Playa Norte, shopping, and restaurants. As of this review, the beds in "old" rooms were hard, but the view was perfect. Newer rooms are nicer with softer beds, but have an inferior view. I would definitely recommend at this hotel at a good price.

Nasty hotel rooms, there is dirt everywhere, bad service workers, have renovations at 8 am ....

Hotel Posada del Mar is great. The location is the drawing card, few minutes from the ferry. the rooms are clean and comfortable. From when I came last year they have been doing improvements. the place just needs some TLC. I will continue coming back and recommending it to my friends and anyone who asks about hotels on the island.

The hotel is very run down. When I upgraded to a room with a fridge and I told them it wasn't working I was told it was more of a maintainer. But the staff was pleasant enough.

My room was very dirty. The bed sheets were clean but the blanket was crusty dirty, the floors were swept but very dirty and probably hasn't been mopped in months. The bathroom was dirty but the towels were clean. We were under the impression that all rooms had a fridge but I didn't, apparently that's a $100 upgrade. My friend paid for the upgrade and got a fridge that didn't work, the staff said it's not meant to keep items cold but just maintains the temp....which was over 90 degrees every day. The bed is rock hard but I actually found it to be comfortable and slept well. I had a room with a newer air conditioner that worked fantastic but three of my friends rooms had a.c's that kept breaking down and took the maintenance staff days to get fixed. The halls were being scraped and re-painted, which was nice because they were super disgusting and moldy. The pool was too hot and not sure how it was filtering because the water level is kept a good 4" below the skimmer at all times, leaving the surface of the pool dirtier than the ground. There's very little shade in the pool area beyond umbrellas. I travel often and love island time but the wait staff (with the exception of the pool bartender) sits around playing on their phones while you try to get their attention to order (after 25 min!!) I would never stay here again, I love Isla Mujeres and have stayed on the island many times and this place was by far the worst. The best place I stayed was at Barlito!

Room was as expected. However the refrigerator didn't work. We told the front desk twice and nothing was done.

We have stayed at the Posada del Mar several times in the past 10 years. Additionally, my husband officiated a wedding here last July for our best friends. Suffice to say, the accommodations were exceptional for all our friends and family, the service was more than welcoming, and the food and beverages rank with the best on the island.

The charged extra for everything and our pre-paid shuttle service did not work at all. Calling ORBITZ to try and fix was a 3 hour nightmare! The restaurant was always closed when we were hungry.

Air conditioning worked great and kept room nice and cool. Only improvements would be ceiling fan and shower head. Ground floor twenty feet from pool with ocean view. Great bar and bartender, Romy, made the best drinks. Restaurant in front of property. Walking distance to any place you wanted.
