Hotel Ramada Cancun City
Travel Blogs from Cancun
After what felt like a decade walking around this ridiculously large shopping mall, Rach found the dress she wanted and we headed home. It was an early start the next morning for our sailing trip out to Mujeres Island.
We had done a similar trip 3 years ago with the boys. I recall memories of tequila shots ...
... to extend our stay another two days, we were jolted with reality—no room at the inn in high season if you don’t book in advance.
As a cushion to getting fully back on the road, we took a baby step and headed over to Isla Mujeres, which involved a mere two-minute bike ride to the ferry slip we’d been looking at for the past few days from our balcony. I felt a profound loss at leaving our luxury room and it was even ...
... crash. Such a good sleep.
The next day everything turned around,
the bright sun woke us up and by the end of the day we already had a
bit of a sunburn :-D The rest of the week was awesome weather too. We
planned to have a very relaxing trip, but still we made an effort to
do enough excercise to balance out all the eating...it didn't really
work. Morning jogging, swimming, aquaerobics and dance class with a
... carbonara. It was really nice and the service was fantastic. An older American lady we were chatting to the previous night when we arrived said the servings were really tiny. Both of us couldn't finish and we were really hungry before our meals, maybe American servings are a bit bigger than we are used to?! After dinner we played some pool in the sports bar. Kev won both games. We wanted to play table tennis after but some other people were hogging it. They were playing beer pong ...
... the Spirit Airlines office at terminal three. The only downside was that someone somewhere had cut through the padlock but we don't know if that was in BogotÓ, Fort Lauderdale or Canc˙n. It's a bit strange because it was one of those locks that the customs officials are supposed to be able to open, but at least nothing seemed to be missing. We hopped onto the shuttle bus to terminal two and checked in for our flight to Mexico City, had a bite to eat and boarded on time for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ramada Cancun City
We chose the Margaritas because of the reviews and its location--near the bus station. we weren't disappointed. You can catch the bus from the airport to the bus station and save yourself a lot of money if you can walk the 2 blocks. We enjoyed the pool, and had no complaints about our big airy room. Breakfast ws expensive but there was lots of choice. It would have been cheaper if we had sigh=ned up for it the night before. Staff was very friendly.
I go to Cancun once, sometimes twice a month. I consider my self a pro when it comes to traveling here, as I have many locals as very good friends. This hotel was nicley situated by some restruants that we had never seen. The price was fair, however, when we pulled back the sheets we found numerous pubic hairs, sand/mud, as well as mascara on the pillows (my friends tell me the frost desk clerk rents out the rooms by the hour while not occupied, which is actually very common in many hotles in Mexico). I went to the front desk to complain, and it took an act of congress to get the sheet changed. They only wanted to change my wifes, and not mine.They did not have any fresh pillow case, so they actually took one out of someones room and replaced theirs with our dirty one. The staff was friendly, however they mislead me on the meal package. $21 usd for 1 dinner and 2 breakfast. Make no mistake, it is not for 1 person, not two as they tell you. I even asked for clarification before I bought, " no problema...si' for 2 peopels." Had the manager not been the one to sell me the package, there would have been problmes. Overall not bad for the price, BUT CHECK YOUR SHEETS PRIOR TO CRAWLING IN BED!
Great Hotel in cancun
This hotel met my expectations: clean room with comfortable beds and no bugs, new A/C that is temperature adjustable and quite, good size bathroom, TV and a private balcony that overlooks the pool. Margaritas was a very pleasant stay in cancun city, within walking distance of very good restaurants, clubs and the bus station, which is very convenient if you're planning for trips outside the city. It's also ten minutes away in the bus from the hotel zone. My only complaint was the towels smelled a little funny, although we got four new towels everyday (don't forget to tip the cleaning lady). shouldnt be a problem if you bring or buy your own towels. Will definitly come back !
The Margaritas Hotel is a wonderful hotel. The staff is very friendly and always at your service. The rooms are very big, clean, bright, and cheerful. The bathroom was also very clean and a nice size. The pool and restaurant were also very satisfactory. It was a nice change having a hotel in downtown Cancun. You get to experience a lot more Mexican culture compared to the Hotel Strip which is much more americanized. It was about $13-15 American Dollars to take a taxi one-way to the Hotel Strip but a much better idea is to take the buses which are $.70 Make sure to eat at Las Parilla which is a block down from Margaritas. Very good food and mexian culture.
I dug it. Nice place.
I loved being in town, and Margaritas provided a room at maybe a third (or less!) of what the strand hotels charge. No, the pool isn't very impressive (though functional) and the shower room didn't have a fan (though it was quite clean), but the people were wonderful, the room was spacious and well cared for, the restaurant was good, and its close to many of the towns amenities. Highly recommended for budget travellers, or for those who would like to experience a little bit of Mexico while they're out of the country.
when we checked into the hotel margaritas it was only going to be for one night but we found ourselves staying a week.. the staff were friendly and helpful and we could only ask that more hotels were as accommodating as they were.. carlos the bellhop is a real nice man and always had a friendly smile for us when we arrived back at the hotel each day or night. the staff behind the desk were also very helpful and friendly too.. we had absolutely no complaints and do not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, even our friends.. the location of the hotel being in the downtown area provided many things and places to explore and we found it a lot better than being in the hotel zone. the mexican restaurants in walking distance were too numerous to mention but of the ones we frequented the las parrilla was the most fun.. a mere 300ft from the hotel.
Not a good place for Americans
The place is a one star hotel for American standards. They don't change the sheets in 8 days. They short you on towels. The concrete and brick around the pool is cracked and dirty. The rooms have very little light, and no window or fan in the bathroom. The on-line pictures of the rooms and pool must be 40 years old. Don't book tours with them at their desk, they add false charges to your credit card too. They tried to scam us the week of New Years 2003. First it was we don't have your sun trips reservation, but we can send you across the street to a worse dump. Then when we flashed our travel agency cards, we somehow got a room???
Great hotel clean and comfortable
I stayed at the margaritas hotel for 2 days before moving onto a bigger all inclusive hotel. This hotel was very clean and an absolute bargin considering that I was staying during spring break. 48 dollars a night u cant beat that excellent service friendly people and a decent neighborhood. Its only about 10 minutes from the clubs and main attractions in cancun. the only downfall is that if you want to take the bus which is much cheaper than a cab you have to walk a couple of blocks but other than that this is a great location to stay at.
Good hotel in heart of city
We loved staying at the Hotel Margaritas. The air-conditioned room was comfortable and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was terrific, close to good restaurants and music clubs.
Margaritas hotel is great
The hotel and rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly. We felt very comfortable and had a great stay. The restaurant provided good food and the hotel is located next to stores and many restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience more of the Mexican culture.
