Hotel Hacienda Maria Bonita2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel was good and rooms were clean. Also, the staff is overall friendly. In our room the noise of the clubs was very mild so that was not a problem for us. Our main problem was that we went there by car. The hotel only have a parking lot for 3-4 cars, so if that’s full (which is almost always the case) they willtell you to find a parking lot on your own. However, we were there on a Saturday and all the parking lots were full. We spent more than 2 hours trying to find a place where we could park the car. It was a nightmare after a long drive, and we lost half of the evening just driving around. In summary, this is a great place to stay and very nice located if you don’t come by car.
Amazing position on the opposite corner of the famous Coco Bongo. Price is absolutely affordable and the personnel is super friendly. Moreover the hotel is super nicely furnished and colorful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel was very nice and located 1 block away from 5ta ave which is where most people go. Also only a 5 minute walk to the beach. We had a room facing the street. Read other reviews about people complaining about the noise and I would disagree. I can say that it was not quiet but also not loud enough to prohibit you from sleeping. Coco bongo is a couple feet away and you do hear the occasional drunk yelling outside but none of it really bothered us. The parking situation was a bit rough being that they only have about 6 spaces. Other than that it was a great stay.
Great location! Nice spacious rooms. Great friendly staff! I really enjoyed staying here. Close to everything. Great price too. Playa del Carmen is a great spot for anyone interested in having a fun time, it has great nightlife. This hotel is very close to Coco Bongo and Palazzo!
The architecture of the hotel is like stepping into a small Mexican plaza. It is very picturesque. The suite was very comfortable. We did experience a bit of noise at night as some noisy guests decided to use the pool, but I would definitely stay here again. It is a bit of a walk from the ferry and shopping area, but very close to the Wal-Mart.
Got the suite. Paid about $79usd a night or a little more than 14,000mxn for 11 nights. As other reviews have said, VERY loud at night. Take ear plugs. No hot water in the shower for most of trip. Mostly bathed in the bathtub for hot water (never filled it up-scared what was in jets-just washed up.) Complained about shower hot water twice. Never got fixed. They inspect room as you check out to make sure you didn't steal remotes. A few cockroaches in the room but hey its Mexico what do you expect? AC worked well. Wifi worked well with password. Would not book here again.
I was a little concerned about the reviews mentioning noise all night & was pleasantly surprised to find we experienced no such problems (although there are a few rooms as you walk in to the left which I'd guest have the noise from coco bongo) but as I say we had no issues sleeping & even had a couple of early nights where we took a couple of beers to the room & either sat on the balcony or watched a film without problems. We found from check in the staff did all they could to help us - our Spanish wasn't great so iPhone translator helped & made our new friend laugh sometimes. He even arrived with an extension cable as he noticed we were struggling with only one plug for charging or the fridge! Very kind & without us asking. The ladies that cleaned the rooms were always smiling and friendly & the free coffee & cake was a nice touch especially early morning if waiting for transport. The main reason we opted to stay here was because we wanted to be centrally located and boy did we hit the jackpot!!! A few minutes walk to the beach (we did us the hotel recommended one once but found it about a 25 minute walk & quite expensive) but loved the local beach. We were one block from fifth avenue which was good for a drink to people watch or a spot of window shopping. But right by the hotel and walking away from the tourist area was some fantastic authentic Mexican restaurants always full of locals And serving the most amazing food. We also loved the colours & features of the little hotel so much more character than some other hotels we noticed. We have already arranged to return.
This place, despite the name, is not a hotel. It's a Mexican bar with beds, and if you planned on having any sleep during your stay, don't go there. "Hotel" has a bar on the ground flood, just on the other side of the pool. Due to the building geometry, any noise in the bar is propagated around the hotel and can be heard in all the rooms. Bar starts working around 1AM and stops the loud Mexican music around 6AM. Bass shakes the whole building (mirror on our wall was rattling whole night) and hotel staff was just saying "5 more minutes! 5 more minutes!". We ran away after second night - hotel staff told us noise was temporary (special, once a year party...) and will not repeat, but after second night, we had it enough. Needless to say we didn't get a refund and I'm still fighting with them. Spare yourself a trouble, get a decent hotel so you can get some sleep when you are done partying on the beach. You will not get any rest in Maria Bonita.
Great location downtown, but not a good place for sleep. We had only a door between us and the next room (not a wall), and we could hear a man snoring really loud, as loud as if he was in our room. From around midnight to 4:30am, the music from the discotheca next door was blaring so loud (basses mainly) that sleep was not an option at all. Not a place we recommend at all, unless you plan on being at the disco yourself until 4 or 5am.
Stayed here for 4 nights with friends in October. Excellent location - around the corner from Coco Bongo & a 2 minute walk to the main strip/5th Avenue. Loved the fact that the hotel is 'authentically Mexican', lots of vivid colours, cool artwork dotted about the place, animal statues hidden around corners, It was a welcome change from the more 'westernised' places I had stayed in. Rooms were very spacious and were cleaned daily. Cool pool area to relax at. Reasonably priced. Not for the light sleepers as the noise from the nearby clubs can be heard until the early hours.
