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 healthy breakfast in their open kitchen in the morning. You squeeze your own juice, cook your own eggs to order and serve yourself. It is just perfect.
It's true that the place is a 10-15 minute walk into town. You can borrow a bike, take a cab or walk. But what you get in return for the distance from town is peace and quiet.
If you are looking for a party scene, stay at one of the large resorts south of here. But if you are looking for a lovely, simple and clean bed and breakfast and want to relax, Rancho Sak Ol is a great option. I know next time I am in Puerto Morelos I'll stay there again.

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. The beach is a bit rocky but completely private as everyone else is on the beach the other side of town. Lots of hammocks and loungers to choose from, it makes a great change to the resorts found elsewhere on the coast. Bikes are free, which make the 5 minute ride into town much easier, otherwise taxis cost around 50 pesos I was told. Unfortunately the bar wasn't open when I was there but it's easy enough to nip to the shop and store everything in the fridge anyway! Rooms are fairly basic, with a fan and I'm still unsure how I feel about the swinging bed but overall it was great. next time I'm in Puerto Morelos I will be paying a visit.

*Taxis to cancun airport cost 350 pesos and can be booked in town

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. The rooms have optional swing {hammock like but great mattresses} Try it before you put it back to normal on the floor! The hosts Valente and Hilda are so genuine and helpful. We learned so much about ourselves the Mayan culture and were honoured to be the first tourists to see a new discovery. After a few days it felt like our home and Valente and Hilda were our good friends. So glad we had this experience

Room Tip: There are two rooms directly looking at ocean I liked the room upstairs by the office as you could see the ocean, pier and mangrove

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 Sak-Ol is a great place if you're looking to stay on the beach, want some quiet relaxing beach time, get away from the Cancun/Playa crowds, and aren't fussy. This is not a luxury resort, but the rooms are clean with some decorative charm, and you walk directly from the beach into your room. The owners were very welcoming when we arrived and showed us around. All rooms had hammocks out front which were a nice way to relax in the evenings (after you applied some mosquito repellant!). The self-service breakfast was perfect: yogurt, muesli, lots of fresh fruits, breads, fresh-squeeze orange juice, coffee, and make-you-own eggs. The big palapa was a nice place to hang out and to eat breakfast, as it had a great view of the beach.
In terms of the beach, it does not compare to the pristine sandy beaches of Tulum. But, for the price and the proximity to the airport you can't really complain. To the left is a view of the port where there is sometimes a big barge unloading containers, but otherwise it's a great ocean view. Lots of different birds around which I enjoyed a lot. The beach itself is quite rocky in the water, and currently a lot of seaweed at waters-edge. The seaweed is unavoidable all over this coastline around now, but some places manage it better than others. Trash that gets washed up along with the seaweed could be picked up more often, as it sometimes gets a bit unsightly while walking on the beach, or leaping over the seaweed/trash piles to get in or out of the water. This would probably require a coordinated effort of the handful of resorts within walking distance along the beach.
The town was a 5 minutes drive - we were hoping to use the rental bikes but they were in-use by other guests most of the time - this would also be a great way to get into town. Some decent lunch and dinner options in town if you don't want to self-cater with the shared kitchen.
The hanging beds were kind of cool, but I think I would enjoy it more if I were not sharing the bed with another person. Every time anyone shifts slightly the whole bed swings around. If we stayed more than two nights I probably would have requested to un-hang the bed.
Free wi-fi in the main palapa area was nice. We were in room 6 and were also able to get the wi-fi in our room. I think some of the further rooms couldn't get a signal though.
Overall, very nice relaxing stay here. More of a budget/backpackery vibe here than at other place in the area, but in a nice way. Oh yea, and Luna the resident doggie was wonderful as well.

Room Tip: We had downstairs room #6 - very happy to have the A/C at night. Great breeze off the water, but the lower rooms didn't get much of it.
