Hotel Sotavento & Yacht Club

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pool was very dirty, zero wait staff and very unorganized.

Tucked away in a row of really expensive hotels is an inexpensive oasis. Rooms are comfortable. The pool was inviting although I didn't make it in to swim. The food under the palapa was wonderful, both for dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this hotel.

The kids had fun though they said the bottom of the pool was a bit duty

Nice jungle sort of decoration. By the dock you can see small fishes. Nice ambience. Parking is by curbside most of the time but seems to be ok. Friendly staff. I would stay again but . Wifi did not reach my room, we needed Internet to research what park we will go next so I had to go down to their restaurant

good rooms, good service, good food, clean and inexpensive. On the negative side, the internet is very slow and should be upgraded. Wolfgang and maggie

Some of the hotel staff was extremely rude,the beds were VERY hard,the food was gross.The worst hotel I've visited.And we had to leave our room key at the desk every time we left the hotel(never had to do that before).

Great hotel, clean, good food, great location very close to the beaches

It was great there clean rooms very nice staff and in a great location. Just don't expect too much for your breakfast!

Fully meets expectations. Nice garden and cool building. Helpful staff.

The location was good and I liked the green surroundings and being just by the bay. 1st floor rooms are not that good. The towels have stains left on them, even though they were washed clean.

GOOD: 1) this place had a pool and restaurant. That's about it. BAD: 1) location is off the main road and far from attractions. 2) rooms are simple. Breakfast not included for everyone. UGLY: 1) I ordered the paella and one of the clams was completely full of MUD!! I told the waiter and he just laughed. I also found a hair in my paella. 2) there were NO towels when we checked in on 3/17/14. The room was clean but no towels. Room B5 is where we stayed. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Good value for the price. Not the best place if you are visiting for the beach as it is on the lagoon. Beach access on the hotel zone can be difficult as all the hotels are right next to eachother. So if you want beach access, find a beach front hotel. We booked this for our last night as we just needed a place somewhat near the airport as we had an early flgiht. So it was perfect for that. Friendly staff. Beautiful grounds.

This was a nice hotel, relatively conveniently located. It's not all inclusive, but good to stay at if you want to take tours and such. There's a swimming pool and an open-air cafeteria.

This is a very nice hotel for the price, considering that breakfast is included.

There were some problems with the toilet when we first got there but all was corrected in good time. The staff was wonderful ~ also very helpful and obliging. We had a few problems with the grayline representative ~ she gave us the wrong times for the Sunset Cruise which was supposed to be included so we were unable to take advantage of that. She also gave us the wrong pick up time for our transfer back to the airport. We had to call her (Gaby) to get this straightened out ~ she did so but we almost missed our flight because of the mix-up.

Rooms are very basic and small, we didn't have blankets, enough towels or soaps until we ask for them, moldy smell and mosquitoes everywhere.

My wife and I had stayed in an all inclusive hotel for five days and needed a basic hotel for the next five days while doing some activities around town. We were leaving the hotel early morning to visit the ruins and parks and getting back late at night. Sotavento was great for us and very convinient to the bus stop. For the price we paid, it was worth it.

This hotel is off the beatn path, very quiet. The grounds are beautiful, it sits on the lagoon. Close to almost everything, Its a little walk to the beach accross the street. The staff is excellant always willing to please. The rooms are clean, a little on the musty side even with the air coonditioning on, could be due to the age of the building. Food in the restaurant off the menu was exccellant. If you are looking for value and not the life of the rich and famous this is the place to stay.

I read a lot of bad reviews about this hotel and honestly it has improved a lot and deserves better. If you are looking for something simple but comfortable, clean and calm, the Sotavento is a great place to stay. Definitely not for party animals or kids. Our room even had a flat screen TV, free wifi and dark curtains for those who don't like to get up with the sun (like me!). Breakfast (6:30 to 10am) is included: very decent and different every day. The staff is great. The restaurant offers awesome food at a very reasonable price. The pool is very clean. All together it's a great deal. The only things to improve are to put bugs screens on the windows and to have quieter airco.

I love this place. Found it a couple years back after they remodeled and have gone back every year for a long weekend. Right across the street from the Isla Mujeres ferry dock. Small, quaint and very quiet. Nice little pool, not a lot of sun though, but that's ok for those days you just want to relax by the pool in the shade. Staff is great, friendly, and warm. Food is good in their little restaurant. Best of all, the price is right. Rooms are simple, but clean and comfortable.

Pathway to the pool Palapa pool

Tucked away in a row of really expensive hotels is an inexpensive oasis. Rooms are comfortable. The pool was inviting although I didn't make it in to swim. The food under the palapa was wonderful, both for dinner and breakfast. I would recommend this hotel.
