“My home away from home.”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I visit Isla Mujeres several times a year. I have tried multiple hotels during the last ten years, but Maria del Pilar was my home away home for 3 out 4 visits last year. I love being downtown and close to everything, however when you step into your room you feel a million miles away. Gladys and her staff have made the ambiance so inviting, and make sure you have everything you need. Everyone at the hotel is super friendly, and you can't beat the price.

I have found my home away from home! Just got back from a week at the Maria De Pilar. I have been to Isla the past ten years and this is my favorite place to stay. Centrally located, just a half block from the main street and a 2 minute walk to the beach.. Gladys and Gunther couldn't be more accomodating. Plenty of hot water for the shower. Very clean rooms. This is a great place if you are looking for the basic room. WiFi, a.c., a safe in the room too. Beds are typical Mexican beds...a little hard...and the pillows could probably use a replacing, but all in all it was excellent. The roof top has a covered deck...a great place for socializing. Met many new friends. Can't wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: Room number 4 has the best a.c. Room number 3 has 2 twin beds

I have been coming to Isla many times over the years (first time over 30 years ago). Just found this place walking the side streets this year. Originally rented for a week but loved it so much that we have extended it for 6 weeks!!

There are only 5 rooms but it is connected with Glady's clothing business so there is always someone around. Glady and her family and staff are all really helpful. Very close to everything in Centro. Budget pricing is also very reasonable.

We had a room with all the necessities and more (tv,free wifi,ac,big fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes/silverware, glasses, toaster, blender,etc) but also had the use of a shared kitchen on the terrace. We are using the shared kitchen (with pots and pans) a lot to make rice, pasta, and fish dishes. The terrace is also nice for eating and has a table/chairs for each room.

Everyone is very helpful with any problems. We had a low shower pressure issue and Guether had it fixed 15 minutes after I mentioned it!! Wifi is very strong and stable, can do video streaming most of the time.

We haven't left yet but I know this is now my favorite place to stay on Isla.

We're lucky, that we choose this hotel. It's located just in the middle of shopping and restaturant area. It's also a few minutes walk to the beach.
The owner is very friendly and helpfull guy, who's retired engineer from the US.
The room we got was big enough to accomodate three of us, clean and cosy. There was a little corner in the room with freezer, microwave, coffee maker and coffee table, a few mugs and plates. Also cable tv and ac. Wifi was available with no extra costs, but was very weak if you wanted to use in the room. Outside, there was cooking corner with all facilities you need to cook for on your own. They're not give room service and breakfast.
We have no issues with this place and we would go back again. Can recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

We love this small and cozy hotel! It is only 3 min. away from the beautiful north beach.
The rooms are full equipped with aircon, fan, tv, bathroom and a big fridge. There is a kitchen on the terrace for everybody too. WiFi and coffee for free! We stayed there over one month (we´ve got cheap rates for long-term rentals) and it was really hard for us to leave. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the terrace is wonderful for chilling out, the beach, the downtown and a supermarket is right there. The owner are totally friendly and helpful people!

We absolutely loved this place! The location is perfect, cause you're just in town close to the beaches, the restaurants, shops and the supermarket!
The hotel is really nice, with all accomodations such as kitchen, fridge in the bedroom with toaster, juice maker and coffe machine!!! plus bedrooms are big, very clean and all of them have tv!!!! We compared all hotels and this was the cheapest and the only one with kitchen!!
But the best thing of the hotel is gladys and her husband!!! They're very sweet and welcoming! Ah! don't forget to visit the whale sharks with Jorge!!! Thanks for those days!!!! Eva and Txema
