Fodor's Review

The landscaped grounds here are lovely, as are most rooms, although there is a certain budget-hotel spareness to the place, as befits the price. Several low-rise buildings framing generous lawns house the guest rooms, the largest of which have white Moorish facades and archways separating the living and sleeping areas. All rooms have sunken bathtubs and refrigerators; some have terraces or balconies shaded with red awnings. The sea is across the street from the rooms,

gardens, and pool, and there's a dock for dive boats. Three dive shops and several restaurants are nearby. Many guests return annually, often with dive groups. The hotel often throws in free breakfast for web bookings.

For REAL people, not cruise ship sheep.

Charming, small, friendly & classically elegant french style with Mexican twists. Nancy, the gringa concierge/restauranteur is a major asset, does good breakfasts, plentiful coffee and can get you anything on Coz. Great architecture extends into rooms, large tile tubs, balconies or patios (junior suites). Cenote, tropical garden, critters all there. Pool smallish but fresh. Snorkeling across street is equal to best right from beach palapa bar.

Divers were happy too, and well taken care of. $3 taxi to town. Good prices leave extra for dinners out after days of sun & snorkelling.

Perfect for the tourist or the diver

We stayed here for a week from july 5-13, working through suntrips. The hotel is small, but is lovely. The rooms look out on a serene little garden, with a nice pool, hammocks between the trees, and frogs and little geckos hopping about at night. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. This isn't a full-service resort, but I enjoyed being away from the hordes of families and tourists at the bigger places.

It's about 25 pesos (US$3) to take a taxi into town. Right across the street is a small pier where diving boats or snorkel tours can pick you up to take you around the island. Or, just hop right into the water right there with a snorkel and mask to see some gorgeous reefs and colorful fish. There were some little problems, our TV kept blinking out on us, but if you are spending all your time in your room you really shouldn't have bothered coming to Mexico.
