We spent 5 nights here at the end of our 2 week trip though the Yucatan Peninsula. It was the beginning of high season so most of the other hotels were jacking up their prices and were filling up but at $54 US/night it seemed like a good deal when we booked online. PROS: Good location on a quiet street... More

It is true that the standard rooms and bathrooms are not big enough. However the hotel also has other options with bigger and nicer rooms. For instance, in the Senior suite bathroom there are two sinks and a wheelchair can pass through the bathroom door. The hotel provides big water container (20L). But this is under request and the guest... More

Xbulu-Ha is likely my favorite place I've stayed in Mexico. My room was bright and clean, with big windows to the outside, which is a refreshing change from most budget hotels in the country which have been bizarrely designed without this feature. The A/C was powerful enough to freeze us one night, the WiFi was strong enough to watch YouTube... More

Super friendly family, who runs this little hotel. The hotel is cheap, and locally placed in the town of Isla mujeres. It is a bit old, but sort of charming in its own Mexican way. It's clean, and everything in the room is working just fine. Breakfast very limited - we didn't use.

Spent two nights in this very well-located hotel. Near lots of restaurants and a grocery store and the beach. Refrigerator, micro, equipped kitchen. Spacious room. Very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Juan Carlos greeted us at our arrival and took very good care of us. Seems like the staff there anticipates your every need. Lovely 2nd floor lounge looks... More

The staff is warm and friendly, everything was clean and it's off the main area so it is quiet. This was an inexpensive hotel and if you're not looking for luxury then this is the spot. Close to everything, but then again everything on this small island is close to everything ;) My one complaint and it is repeated by... More

My wife and I stayed at XBULU-HA for the second time for 10 days, Sep-Oct 2015. Again the staff was very pleasant, helpful and always smiling. Juan Carlos and his wife, as well as Gabriel, could not have been more accomodating. The one diwnside is that it is located about 2 football fields from the water, but then again, if... More

We visited Isla mujeres for 2nights after a couple in cancun. This hotel is absolutely perfect for what you need on the island. Rooms are lovely and clean. Wifi is strong. Staff were extremely friendly and will help with anything if needed. It's 1 minute from the beach and just behind the main strip of bars but still quiet. Do... More

Standard room - got all you need (including safe box). A/C is Awesome, bed is great. The hotel and rooms are very clean. Great towels for beach, even beach chairs. Only tiny minor issue was some noise in the night and morning. Will come back next time as well!
