to Hotel Posada del Mar just a few blocks from the ferry docks.
Across from the beach and right in the town.
The white sandy beach is across the
street and Playa Norte just to the right of the photo.
A past guest says:
Nicely furnished, quiet, and
comfortable, this hotel faces the water just three blocks north of the
ferry pier. This is probably the best choice in Isla for families.
It's also among the island's best values. This will become a priority for us from now on. Your company does a great job, and I've told several friends about you when they travel to the Cancun area.
New building rooms have a mini
fridge and are larger.

The Hotel Posada del Mar is located directly across the street from a
beautiful white sandy beach on the turquoise Bay of Isla Mujeres.
beautiful skyline can be viewed in the distance of any ocean front room.
Posada del Mar is only a few blocks from the main pier and downtown Isla Mujeres
The hotel's restaurant and bar serves great food from American and Mexican breakfasts to fresh seafood and you may contemplate the ocean from the terrace of the restaurant. If you're a fisherman just ask and the hotel will prepare your catch!
To have an idea of a Mexican breakfast:
Eggs, done anyway you want them, not all Mexicans go for the Huevos Rancheros, which are great, but will go for fried or scrambled. Some will opt for an omelet. Served with refried beans. Juice, coffee, corn or flour tortillas or toast. Sweet bread is another choice and hot chocolate as well. Others will go for breakfast cereal or oatmeal (boring). Hot cakes or waffles are also a number one choice. Those with robust appetites will have eggs and a steak for breakfast (did you see how fat Juan Gabriel became?). Cafe-au-lait was also very common instead of milk. Sincronizadas, which are two tortillas with cheese and ham in between. Gorditas de harina, which are sweet corndough cakes eaten with butter, or jam or milk caramel candy spread. Some go for atole, which is a thick mixture of milk, flavoring, sugar and cornstarch, which is actually very filling. In some parts of Mexico you can have a torta de tamal, which is a bun filled with a tamal. You eat one and you probably won't want to eat anything for the rest of the day. Chilaquiles in red or green salsa are another popular choice and in northeast Mexico you have the machacado con huevo, which is dried salted beef and scrambled eggs cooked with onions, tomatoes, garlic and chilies. Although this combination sounds weird it is actually very, very good for your vacation Isla Mujueres.

For such a small island Isla Mujeres is host to a many restaurants and cafes. There is something for everyone! American, Mediterranean, Italian, French, Asian and of course Mexican. Visitors have said that they come back to Isla every year not just for the beautiful beaches but for the food!
I go for the lobster tails in town.
