Sharing this information so you might know what to expect and adjust your plans accordingly. This is a lovely spot with a warm and kind staff. It is literally on the beach. The breakfast, drinks, and snacks are delicious, carefully prepared, and politely served by the snack bar staff outside on the beach. You can run a tab at the snack bar and then pay at the end-but know that they don't take credit cards and that payment is in pesos, dollars, or use Pay Pal. Definitely plan ahead and bring plenty of cash, because most of the businesses and restaurants on the island don't accept credit cards. We bought pesos in the US to bring along, which worked well for us. The exchange rate on the island itself isn't great and there are a couple of places that do currency exchange, but they seemed loan-shark-y so we didn't use them. The beach is clean and not crowded; vendors do walk by selling souvenirs, coconuts and papayas and ice cream, but they are not a nuisance. The water itself is beautiful but seriously as warm as bath water, so if you expect a refreshing jump in to cool off, consider that as well. There are also dogs who wander in and out, and they are kind of grubby, so if that kind of thing bothers you, this isn't your kind of place. Also know that the stairs to the upper floor rooms are steep and there's no elevator so if stairs are a problem for you, get a room on the first floor. If you have mobility issues, you probably would not be able to use the hotel. We went the last week of July, and it was really hot and humid, so if that's a concern for you, don't go at this time of year. The hotel arranged for a doctor to come and administer our Covid tests which we got back the same day and could be paid using a credit card. This is not a hotel with amenities like Cancun or Isla Mujeres-no ice machines, room service, or minibar, or a phone in the room to call downstairs- so if that's what you are looking for, this isn't your place-but it is clean, simple, basic, and friendly, with a great location and beautiful sunset views at night-and seems much more authentically Mexican. If you are looking for a fancier place with more frills, look elsewhere; but if you want a basic spot to hang your hat while you lounge in a beach chair and watch the pelicans and the fishermen, and be tended to by a kind and gracious staff, then this is an ideal spot.
