...especially if you're avoiding the busy tourist life of Cancun and Playa de Carmen, Puerto Morelos is the right place for you! The town is small, charming, and welcoming.. Same can be said for Rancho Sak-Ol. It's small and clean and really close to the beach. You wake up to the sounds of the waves! The make-it-yourself breakfast is offered... More

We stayed here five nights with our teenaged children to relax away the jetlag and do our first tours for diving and watching the whale sharks. This place is perfect for everybody, who enjoys a quiet, friendly and natural surrounding. The rooms where very clean and we liked the swinging beds, the staff is friendly and attentive, the self service... More

Pretty close to Cancun Airport and a very nice and friendly place go start you holidays! Direct acces to the beach. We stayed in a spacy familyroom with four good beds. The bathroom is clean and the balcony with seaview and two hammocks is great. Breakfast (selfservice) in the palapa is excellent!!!

Rancho Sak-Ol is a great option for those of you that have early flights out of Cancun. The rooms are quaint and clean and the hotel is located on the sea away from the hustle of the town: Puerto Morelos. The hotel has a kitchen area where they provide coffee in the morning and a continental breakfast. I have to... More

The location is beautiful, a quiet beach - lots of seaweed but that´s the same along much of the coast. Large room with hammocks outside, very pleasant room for breakfast with a sandy floor and lovely view. But... it seems to me that this should be classed as a hostel rather than a b and b.Yes, there was breakfast, but... More

This place is unique and has a very laid back atmosphere. While the accommodations are well kept and clean, they do not have the feel of a resort. You are very much on your own. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The beach here is off the main beach and is surrounded by other properties that are not managed,... More

Rancho Sak Ol is a true gem. I stayed for 3 nights in early March. The rooms are clean, larger than expected and open to what feels like jungle on one side and ocean on the other. The front porches are also very good size with two hammocks. Hilda is lovely. She and her team put out a beautiful and... More

What a place. Instantly made to feel at home, I was shown around the facilities and given an option of a few rooms as it was quite windy. It has a great backpacker vibe to the place, with a communal kitchen and fridge and lots of things you can help yourself to which has been left behind by other guests.... More

this is not a 5 star swim up bar kind of place. It is like a hunting or fishing lodge type of accommodation. Right on the ocean and the most peaceful place.

Rancho Sak-Ol is a great place, we happened to have the junior suite which has an amazing queen size bed and a lovely view.The whole place has a very relaxing Mexican feel to it and it is very well managed. Breakfast is lovely with fresh orange juice!

Rancho, a beach side B&B, is the perfect place to relax in a warm, tropical environment where you can stroll along the white sands and crystal waters of the Caribbean, enjoy a siesta in a hammock right on your patio, or bask under the sun in this tropical paradise. Located in an authentic Mexican fishing village, 25 min. south of Cancun airport makes it a very convenient gateway or home-base to explore the Mayan Riviera. ... more   less
