We have now stayed here three times. Once in 2012 and twice in 2013. Our first stay was pleasant enough to make us want to come again. In February we stayed in one of the suites at the front of the hotel and had a very pleasant stay. We decided to stay again at the end of our trip and... More

I returned from my 7th stay at Posada el Moro in February. I stayed 4 weeks. Before I left I made reservations for 4 weeks next year. I've stayed in several rooms over the years but as we stay so long I prefer having a kitchen. We stay on the 3 rd floor and can see the ocean. It's about... More

I love this place. It is a perfect place to use as a jumping-off point for exploration of the cenotes, Cancun. Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and so on. It is reasonably priced, very accommodating, clean, friendly, basic, helpful. They want you to be happy, and this makes it unusual and worth a stay.

we had a wonderful stay here and will do it again. We found everyone to be helpful. Again it has more than met our expectations. The only thing I would recommend is room safes for your valuables, other than this, it's perfect.

With just one night to spend in Puerto Morelos, we found this hotel adequate. We had a family suite on the second floor front, which is actually three flights of stairs up. (No elevators.) It was a tight squeeze for five people. The room was clean, but traffic noise from the street and loud music from the restaurants/bars made it... More

Dear Megan P: Thanks for your comments and suggestions. Indeed during the weekends other business attract clients offering live music. Although this is something that we have no control over, we also offer other rooms (single and Jr suites) inside that as you noticed offer more privacy and less noise during those times. Other than that, we hope that you... More

Spotlessly clean from top to bottom. Conveniently located near the town square, the beach and the great area restaurants. This is my 9th year here and it gets better every year.
