Está ok por el precio . La u ovación es perfecta

Great location near beach access and on Main Street

A lovely overall experience. The staff were helpful and courteous, the room spotless, the AC VERY much appreciated:) It can get loud being situated directly on Ave 5 but if you request a room on the opposite side it's a bit quieter. Of note, the staff are very conscientious about who they let in, even stopping and asking the friend with whom I was traveling for identification, which we both very much appreciated as it is clear that they take security seriously. They offer discounts to the local beach club and provide towels as well.

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.

Everything looked old.. Good location, yet it felt dirty

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.

Everything could have been great if not asking for hot water would have made a big deal. Just up front the hotel is offering coffee and water for free. So if you expect hot coffee you might also expect hot water. Just to make that clear all the staff but one was very nice with us, but one person is enough to ruin your stay. Here are some of the answers we got from this specific person after asking for a cup(we brought our own) of hot water: "No we don't have hot water, just cold". After asking again we were told "to wait 4 hours because the water maker is broke". After this we were told to "just walk to the restaurant across to ask for hot water". Which we did and of course were declined as we found out later this was simply a lie. We confronted the front desk with the facts and yes they apologized and offered us some compensation we in the end did not except as it was not our goal to get something for free but make our point.

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.

Right at 5th avenue, great location ,access to all the cool places

This was a quicqly decide to choose that hotels, because of the price and the location, A small boutique hotel, with small toom.

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.

We stay here every year. The staff is great and the hotel is in the perfect spot. New rooms upstairs are super nice!

Gizele, at reception was the best part of our stay. She spoke great English, was super friendly, and said everything with a warm smile. Our room was located on the ground floor where you could hear the reception phone ring. The hotel interior is gorgeous, but the room fell short. I also want to say that Playa Del Carmen was disappointing in general and next time I'll skip it all together.

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.

The hotel is on the main strip in Playa Del Carmen but its lobby and rooms are somewhat secluded and tucked away. The rooms were not fancy but clean. Great open-air lobby and stair area with lots of vegetation. It's about 2 blocks from the beach and shopping and dining are just steps out the door. If you're looking for something cute and cheap, this is the place!

good location in the city. far to be quite but close to all within 10min walk

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.

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.

comfortable space

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.
