Beautiful and relaxing

By | December 24, 2019

Lovely boutique hotel with a very relaxed pace and atmosphere. Comfortable, spacious room and patio with comfortable lounger and hammock. No fighting for the pool or beach loungers. Nice pool. Amiable staff. Good restaurant open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. I also used an available bicycle for the 20-minute ride into Puerto Morales. Only negative is that, like all the beaches in this area, there is a lot of seaweed on the beach and in the first 20 feet or so of water. I’d come back to this hotel though.

This quiet out of the way spot is precisely what we wanted. The hotel was stunning with large, airy rooms, beautiful bathroom and patio. The pool was clean with lounges and small cabanas. The food was delicious and was maybe the best breakfast I’ve had at a hotel.

The staff was helpful and super friendly with all the cozumel helmet diving tips! It is a lovely walk along the beach to town or a bike ride through a quaint neighborhood. There are two bikes outside that anyone can use whenever they want. I would stay here again. We loved it.

We stayed one night. Our driver had a tricky time finding the property’s driveway, but we found it first turn around. The first-floor unit was perfect, extra-large, beautiful bedding, restroom facilities, and outdoor space. Mini fridge and toiletries provided. Continental breakfast included. There is only one restaurant on the property, with a ‘full’ bar – delicious. Town center seemed to be about 10/15 minutes on foot. We enjoyed the pool loungers, and semi-private oceanfront spot every minute we could. Overall, it felt quite exclusive.

For the past ten years, my husband and I (and our two sons up until two years ago) would look forward to spending a week in sunny Mexico. Of all the years we’ve been to Mexico, we can honestly say the Casa del Puerto was our absolute favorite. It has only 14 rooms, all of which face the beach and are clean and large with a balcony.

Everyone on the staff was tremendously helpful and friendly (Charlie, Freddy, LaLow, others). Because of the hotel size, we were able to meet and comfortably visit with other visitors, mostly from other countries (Sweden, Austria, and Canada). We rode the free bikes to Puerto Morelos nearly every day–a 25-minute ride one way for exercise and more local flavor. The hotel restaurant was delicious with the chef willing to make anything upon request anytime between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. We also enjoyed the free kayaks.

If you are looking for a laid back luxurious experience, the Casa del Puerto Boutique Hotel is for you. We highly recommend this off-the-beaten-path gem. Thank you, Gabriela and family, for your hard work and hospitality! We hope to see you again soon either in Mexico or on one of our bicycle trips abroad.
