Posada Mariposa Boutique Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Mexico, North America
Playa del Carmen

On Playa del Carmen's famous 5th Avenue, an area known as Little Italy, this small hotel offers unique and comfortable guestrooms, just steps away from the turquoise beaches of the Caribbean Sea. Hotel Posada Mariposa is surrounded by tropical gardens and offers guestrooms and suites with Mexican decor, including hand-made curtains and comforters. Guests will also enjoy in-room amenities such as free wireless internet access and cable TV. The area around the Posada Mariposa Hotel is filled with activities and attractions to explore. Guests can swim with dolphins, play a game of golf or discover the nearby Mayan ruins just minutes from the hotel. Direct payment reservations will be debited in the local currency, at the current exchange rate.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

If you already in Mexico Do not spend your time&money there !

Im a traveler and i have been in 3 different hotels in playa del carmen , this hotel is not giving you anything but trouble , bad vibes and absolutely not good service . The room are old and mold . Till 3 am you cant sleep because of the noises from the strip. You have absolutely no service to your phone or wifi unless you sit downstairs far from your room . They employees are just looking for how to take your money and what are you doing wrong , you feel always watched and not comfortable , they are not nice and talk between them self . If you come till mexico you diserve to feel happy , fun and welcomed in the place you paid for . There are many many places in playa del carmen so even if it will be 20$ more at least you going to have the vacation that you want and not to struggle with simple thing like wifi, Cell phone reception , and bad attitude from the employees

Not OK

I booked 2 Weeks for 1000 Dollar. Finally I had to pay 160 Dollar more. "It's our Change" was the answer... Very bad change. The restaurant "La vagabunda" in front of the hotel for the breakfast very unprofessional! They forgot every day something in my breakfast or some order came very late. WiFi worked not very well! Cleaning Personal was kind.

Decided it's not for me I'm checking out

I thought I embraced what I would be expecting Based on other reviews.

The good:
The hotel itself is beautiful, Very local feel to it. The greenery inside in the main lobby is luscious and well taken care of and beautiful...

My room at 1st glance was pretty decent ( their premium room), it had king size 4 poster bed, 2 ceiling fans in the room lots of lightning though a couple of the lights didn't work. Ample charging spots for all your devices. Smaller TV that offered Netflix and Amazon prime. Decent sized closet and an in room safe they give you the lock and key upon checkin. The staff were very friendly. Water was a small waterfall shower head, takes a min but hot water is good. Truly like a rainfall water pressure. Toilet requests not to flush TP, so get some baby wipes and dispose in the small garbage can.

The not so good: If your a light sleeper and early to bed type of person it's definitely not for you. Maybe with ear plugs though I didn't try. There are live bands below that play nightly and they are very loud and run at least until 11-11:30 PM. You literally will hear 3 different types of music at the same time. The bed very very firm almost like sleeping on the floor. So if you like that type of firmness on a bed you're good, lots of pillows including body pillows. I have to go buy one of those egg carton type topper things to put on top and it didn't help. They provide no bottled water in room though, they did have a water cooler downstairs in the lobby that i saw later. They also don't provide any kind of coffee in the lobby in the mornings , pretty much 0 amenities. They do give you a voucher for a continental breakfast across from them I didn't try that either. This hotel is literally smack in-between everything and very hard to spot. Your driver will have to park down around the corner and you will have to walk a little with your suitcases.

I stayed 3 nights and my back can't take it anymore, Also a light sleeper tho a night owl.

This truly is you get what you pay for type of place.

Just not my type of place.

The pix online are very accurate.

Best cheap option, great location and service!

Review by nicohuser Cordoba, Argentina

The perfect combination between great location, great price, good service and decor. It’s located in the middle of the 5th Ave. You can sometimes hear the bands playing or people shouting, but if you don’t complain about it, the rest is perfect...

Nice vegetation at the lobby, the breakfast includes coffee, fruits, toast, granola yogurt and muffin at a beautiful Italian restaurant close to the hotel, and it’s included a gym pass to go everyday around the corner, great gym too. I recommend this accommodation everyday and I will definitely come back.

Great Location! good vibes!

Review by satsangbackpackers Playa del Carmen, Mexico

The hotel was clean and very well decorated! it had a great vibe and great location to the action. However, it was very loud at night. Great place to party, not so great for sleep and quiet...

Also We loved the garden inside the hotel!
