    No amenities. Bed as hard as a rock.
    Air conditioner works great! Small refrigerator works with a light switch... Found out when checking out.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Cabanas Maria Del Mar Isla Mujeres

    Island vacation at its best


    A gorgeous hotel. Very quaint with beautiful walkways. The location is perfect, right on the most beautiful beach of the island. The bar is on the beach, swings and hammocks surround it. The people are friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but sufficient. You have to watch the toilet flushing nce you are on an island they back up easy. If your into 5 star resorts you probably wont like this but if you want a quiet place and enjoy unique, quaint places you will love this hotel. We cant wait to go back, this time without the kids! It is a very romantic place!



    Stayed here from Oct 21-23, 2003. Got a great deal by paying upfront in pesos (about $30 usd a night) and while the location right ON the beach was wonderful, the hotel itself, and particularly the room we had was not what we were expecting based on the reviews I read here. Maybe I was spoiled after staying at a beautiful hotel in Playa Del Carmen for $50 usd a night, but this place felt old, shabby, and musty. Not particularly clean. Bugs in the bathroom, tacky decor, uncomforable beds, unfriendly and unhelpful service. Oh, and the "free breakfast" is just toast and coffe. Big deal. If you don't care about having a romantic or particularly nice hotel and only want a good beach location, and are on a budget, consider this place. If you can afford a little more, skip this place and stay at Villas Las Brisas or Playa Media Luna, both of which are not too much more expensive and were far nicer.

    Great but better down the street!


    Cabanas is a quaint, simple hotel right on North Beach at a great price. Definately not the typical Cancun type "luxury" hotel but clean and has the necessities like hot water and A/C. Can be pricey for what you get during high season. Short walk to a beach area with palm trees & beach volleyball. Also has small mexican restaurant across the street. Palapa beach bar also across the street with daily happy hour that gets quite crowded with beach goers and boat people. But, better deal down the street at Casa Maya that is still short walk from this area and just as quaint if not better.

    Didn't stay the night


    Didn't like it at all. Checked in, checked out a few hours later. Place smelled musty & old. No fresh, clean smell. Dirty, broken lights. Not my idea of a romantic place to stay. Maybe we got a bad room. Requested a king size bed on 1st floor. got 2 single beds on the second. Too nasty for us to stay the night. We read all the reviews for months & were really excited about the place until we got there, not at all what I expected. very disappointed.

    Great Place to stay


    Great Place, beach within 200ft. The walls were so thin you could hear what was going on outside. Would recommend.

    Simply the Best


    If you like simple living and don't care for the "Cancun Crowd" the Maria del Mar is the perfect place to stay. Staff and service are excellent, virtually unseen until you want something, then they are helpful wihtout being pushy. We had a wonderful stay and really hated to leave. (I rarely say that about ANY hotel!)

    If you want the latest resort facilities it probably isn't the place for you. It was the perfect place for us. We visited a resort in Cancun and most of the people there were sitting around the swimming pools, soaking up drinks and I wondered why they didn't go to Miami. They probably didn't know they could have been sitting in a hammock on a "real" beach doing the same thing at half the cost....

    The best of all things!


    Isla will knock your socks off. The staff will treat you better than family! The diving was great. You can walk anywhere you need to go on the island.

    Great location


    This was our second trip to Isle Mujeres and our second stay at Cabana Maria Del Mar. The staff is very nice, the restaurant is good and so is Bohu's beach bar. The location is the best on the island. We stayed in the Castle section, the rooms are nice (basic) the beds are horrible. My friend referred to them as Mayan sacraficial alters. For the price of the room, it's time to update the beds!! Otherwise great place.

    Great location, friendly staff


    I have stayed here twice. The hotel is very quaint with beautiful gardens and is located right on the beach. There is a free continental breakfast every morning at buho's. the restaurant serves a full breakfast, lunch and dinner. It also has a palapa bar right on the sand which has swings instead of bar stools. Great overall relaxing vacation

    Great Value, Great Location


    I stayed in the "tower section" last year. It is located on the north beach. Rooms are small but clean and adequate - you won't be spending much time in the room. No TVs. The beach is nice and you can wade out several hundred feet and it's just chest deep. Unlike Cancun's beaches, you can really swim here. Complimentary breakfast is included with the room rate, you have to walk across the street to thier restaraunt. There is a great palapa bar on the beach with hammocks and TVs for watching the football games. Lots of europeans hang out here. I liked being able to walk right out of my room and onto the beach. Like everywhere, there are hagglars on the beach. I was able to obtain beach service for drinks but not provided thru the hotel. This is a great place to relax and escape Cancun.

    The plan today was to get an ADO bus to chiquila and then get the ferry to Isla Holbox where we had booked accommodation. However, it turns out the last bus to chiquila is at 12.50. We didn't get to the front of the queue at the bus ...

I haven't been able to get a "diver down" flag so Moby will have to do. Unfortunately he's a bit unwieldy, and has a nasty tendency to escape. On Sunday, when I was distracted by a school of Blue Tangs, he made a dash for Disneyland, and it was all I could do to recapture him. Ken was busy pasting maps ...

About 5 minutes after that, the guide is telling us it in our last chance to jump, and poor Jaime is just trembling from not having food in his tummy, having gotten sick and still having to deal with the rocky boat, and having the 80 degree sun in the sky with no cloud coverage continuing to burn.
