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.
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.

Adventure Dives are a PADI specialty, but in this context it takes on a whole new meaning. M inquired about diving at a shop where Carlos told her how much a two tank dive would cost. I came later and we paid for our dives...in cash. clue #1 There were no PADI signs, only a scuba flag with DAN on it. Clue #2 We were told that we'd meet at 7:50, and it would just be the two of us. At 8, we met the other two divers who were just certified and had never been in salt water...clue #3 ...
As I have previously mentioned we get a lot of visitors at our meetings. On Saturday the brother who gave the public talk was from Massachusetts and there were two families from New Hampshire plus other visitors. There was also a couple visiting from Australia. The husband was originally from Lancashire and his wife from Australia. They moved to Australia four years ago and have five children. We had planned to go out after the meeting for dinner as we sometimes do and ...
... change excess cuc, Find the first fast internet in Cuba and book tonights hotel and spend our last 1.25 cuc on a 1.50 bottle of water. Nice man let us off with the shortfall.
50 minute flight to Cancun, get a great view of Mujeres and cancun as we land. Out through the airport with minimum fuss, to the tourist information. Matey boy helpful with a map, where our hotel is, and what beer to drink, less helpful when we realise he's selling us a time share day out.

... We had our last supper together at the impeccable Buccanos Bar & Grill. They put on an exquisite display of gourmet seafood dishes with very attentive service and ambient lighting, right on the water's edge. The next morning, I said farewell and thank you for an unforgettable trip then mellowed out with a last swim and yoga practice before heading to Tulum.
With only two nights in Tulum I packed in two mind-blowing cenote (an inland underwater cavern) dives - once ...
This blog post will mainly be about basketball as that has pretty much been the focus of my weeks since training and matches restarted after the 7 weeks of holiday... Wow, I forgot how easily I can put on weight and lose my fitness! I had also forgotten Mexican-style basketball, and man, did it hit me hard, literally. Luckily, I quickly snapped back to Mexican reality and dealt with the slaps, punches and nails that came my way and the two games ...
