We stayed at Hotel Las Palmas Isla Mujeres from the middle of January for a month. . The owners, Kate and her daughter Safari had a little difficulty understanding how pleased we were simply to be able to do very little or sometimes nothing at all! It is a delightful, slightly quirky small hotel with about 12 bedrooms (a new penthouse has been added this year) wonderfully decorated and extremely comfortable. There is a kitchen for residents on the roof where some people cook meals and most evenings the guests get together for a happy hour margarita session, but there is no pressure to join in. Pots of coffee are prepared every morning. The location is very quiet, considering it is very close to the main restaurant area, and whether you walk north, south or east, you will come to the beach within about 400 yards. The beach at Playa Norte is particularly pleasant with the crystal clear water only being waist deep and masses of fish that love to be fed. It is not possible to visualise a more delightful place for a lovely, relaxing idle holiday staying with lovely people.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Las Palmas is your home away from home on Isla Mujeres, tucked away from the hustle-bustle of Cancun. We are a family run hotel (three generations of women, mother-daughter and grand-daughter). Naturally, our place is a very unpretentious accommodation with a casual, friendly atmosphere. We have many comfy communal areas, including a rooftop with a plunge pool. You'll find lounge chairs, hammocks, and tables with chairs to welcome you after a day at the beach - possibly an afternoon siesta. Our communal kitchen is also on the terrace and fully equipped. Our shaded deck on our second level, overlooking the street and is a great spot for people watching or reading a good book.We are located in the heart of the downtown. The beautiful turquoise of the Caribbean and powdery sand beach at Playa Norte are a block away (5 min walk). Just around the corner is Hidalgo Avenue, filled with cuisine from all over the world, live music, and friendly locals and tourists alike. We're directly across from the municipal market with four "loncheria" eating stalls, housing tasty, economical breakfast-lunch meals, as well as fresh squeezed juices.We have a hotel dog, Cachito (hypoallergenic, rasta-hair poodle) who is always ready for a stroll. ... more less
