Fantastic no-frills but charming hotel with an amazing location on Hidalgo Ave., literally in the heart of the action. Easy to find, walked there from the ferry with suitcases in tow, took us a few easy minutes. Make sure to get a suite room (001, 002 or 301). They are spacious, tasteful and comfortable with great air conditioning. Great if you have kids. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Daily free breakfast is simple (fruit, cereal, toast, yogurt), but healthy and the coffee was strong and excellent. Wifi sometimes spotty, but worked most of the time. Sip your coffee on the balcony or courtyard and plan your day while watching the town and vendors wake up. Safe, convenient and surrounded by everything you need. Four blocks from the beach. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite.

I picked Hotel Bucaneros because of the good reviews on this site and as usual, they were spot on. We were looking for accommodations that were clean, affordable, centrally located and not too big or fancy. Bucaneros met all these criteria and more. We had a room with a double bed on the third floor. It was small but big enough for my daughter and me. The room included a fridge, great for chilling water, as well as AC, a ceiling fan and a surprisingly decent shower. There was a safe in the room as well (the front desk lent us a lock with a small deposit). The free breakfast was a bonus -- it wasn't huge but it did the trick, allowing us a good start to the day with coffee, tea and juice, muffins, toast with available peanut butter, jam, butter and cream cheese, yogurt and a generous plate of mixed fruit. There was water on each floor where we could fill our water bottles so we didn't have to buy water each day.

Bucaneros is located on Avenida Hidalgo, the main (pedestrian) street near the Playa Norte, so we were close to everything -- the beach, more restaurants than we could hope to try, shopping and even a sports bar where we could watch our beloved Wisconsin Badgers in the NCAA tournament. Although the street scene was lively and vibrant, noise was not an issue; things seemed to quiet down early enough and Isla doesn't seem to be the party place some other locations in Mexico are.

The Bucaneros staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

The Hotel Bucaneros took us in after our original reservation elsewhere was "lost." The staff was very friendly and helpful and there was always someone at the front desk. We had 2 small double rooms which contained a double and a single bed, with a small bath and shower. It was tricky to regulate the shower temp, but it could be done! Our deluxe double room had two full beds, table and chairs and there was a shower/tub in the bathroom. All the rooms had TVs and AC. One thing I really liked was there was a separate internet on each floor; the best internet service we encountered. The morning breakfast was a treat with pastry/breads, cereal, yogurt and beautiful fresh fruit plates, coffee,tea, fresh juice and milk. The hotel was clean and very centrally located. We were on 1st, 2nd & 3rd floors, with the lobby being ground/sidewalk level. There are no elevators.

Room Tip: Try getting something on the north side as there is a piece of machinery on a roof that has a high pitched whine.

This was our first stay at Bucaneros and were thoroughly impressed. We have been to Isla several times previously and will return for several more.
We stayed in one of their newer units on the ground floor in the back courtyard.
Not an overly large room, but has a king bed, small kitchenette and a small walk-in closet. There is a patio table & chairs outside the door for sitting outside. They have a courtyard in back, but is under construction - no pool.
They are located on Hidalgo which is the main street for restaurants, bars & shopping.
There is a convenience store two doors down and a grocery store 2 blocks away.
No access to any beaches as it is in the center of town, but the beach is about a 10 minute walk.
We have stayed on the beach in condo's previously and liked that as well, but for anyone wanting to save some money and doesn't mind walking to the beach, this is a great alternative.
We'll be back!!!
Other things to note:
-Staff was always courteous and prompt when needing something.
-The front desk will exchange money if they have it at a very reasonable rate (some places will underpay the exchange rates).
-Beach towels are availabl with a deposit (fully refundable) for those who need them
-They serve an informal "Continental" breakfast each morning (toast, muffins, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed juice, coffee, tea, cereal, milk, spreads etc.)
-Free WiFi, however not all areas get good coverage (where we staed there was intermitent service)
**Travelers tip - lighten your load by packing less clothes and have them laundered down the street for a few dollars (70 pesos = $4.25 US = 2 small loads) - with the added costs for luggage each way, this can be a substantial savings.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the rooms on the ground floor in the back of the Hotel. It was quiet all of the time.

We stayed at Bucaneros in March 2016. We had a small room one the 1st floor. (one floor walk up). The room was small with two beds but very comfortable. The bathroom had a large tiled tub/shower however the shower was not great. more like a spot free mist you get at the car wash and you only had two choices cold or really hot. Anther quick is the sink is not in the bathroom but just outside in the main area. The rest of the room was very nice, a small table, with chairs, coffee maker and dishes with a hot plate. I would stay here again as the location was great for all restraurants, bars and shopping. They even had beach chairs you could take down to the beach. We used them twice.
