A great find

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: We felt very comfortable
Cons: Beds were a little hard, pillows were a little thin, but after playing in the ocean and dancing the night away we didn't really care.
Location: Everything is with in a couple blocks
My family just enjoyed a 7 day stay at hotel Almendros. It was a great hotel in a great location. The staff was nice and friendly. The room was nice and clean. The maids were very helpful. We stayed on the the street side 2nd floor and enjoyed the music and people watching. The hotel had great policy's that helped conserve energy and protect the environment! We have stayed in other hotels on Isla but will be making Almendros our new home when we come to the island. Ben who has a stand that books tours in front of the hotel was so helpful and very friendly!

Central location

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: its central location, and having a pool - not many do on Isla.
Cons: The rooms are very basic, but comfortable.
Location: Right in the middle of restaurants, bars, and shops. There is a unique jewellry store right next door.
Almendros is central to restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms are quieter that overlook the pool (the street is very noisy at night, with loud music and a bar right next to the hotel). They provide a kitchenette (coffee pot, fridge, sink, dishes, microwave and toaster), so you can prepare your own breakfast if you like. The pool is refreshing to swim in after a day at the beach, which is a few blocks away. Most of the guests seem to be repeat customers, who know each other and get together around the pool. It's an older crowd (late 60s and 70s). Rooms are very basic, but comfortable and clean.

Could be so much better

Posted Mar 15, 2015
Pros: The location, staff, and pool.
Cons: A window with a screen or a way to lock open the patio door screen. Softer pillows. A coat tree or a few shelves above bed would be great.
Location: Spent two weeks here. Walk out to bars and restaurants. Five or six block walk to ferry. Playa Norte beach and malecon nearby.
Wonderful staff and clean rooms. Bed and pillows are hard and it took us many days to get a good night sleep. There is no way to lock the patio screen open to get some ventilation. Room could use a window with a screen. Ceiling fan should be adjustable. The pool is very nice. There's a coffee machine, toaster, microwave, small fridge, some cutlery and plates and bowls. You have to buy coffee and filters. The hotel is on the Hidalgo strip and has several bars near the entrance. If you're unlucky you will end up on the street side. The far side is much quieter though and the street music usually dies after 11pm. Room #9 rocks!

Central Location

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: We visited several other hotels and would not have traded with any of them. The location, pool, quietness and yet in the center of all the action was
Cons: Could have an email address for contact o/s Mexico. Beds are hard.
Location: Just a few: beach, shopping, scuba, snorkling, nitelife, dining, cart rental etc.
Isla mujeres was a great winter vacation. Our 3 weeks passed way to quickly. The beach, Hildago, the sites were all exceptional.

Horrible experience

Posted Feb 23, 2015
My family has stayed at several hotels in Isla and never had any issues until we tried Plaza Almendros. We stayed in room 108. The room had a sewer smell and the air conditioning didn't work. To make matters worse, our room had a balcony overlooking the street and the bars below played loud music until 3:00 am. We stayed one night and moved to a new hotel.

Posted Feb 20, 2015
Pros: Location and a reasonable price....clean beach towels provided every day..
Cons: The beds were very firm...which we personally like....but if you like softer beds...may be an issue....that is in our room...not sure about other room
Location: Right on the main street..Hidalgo..so close to all the action...beach is a 5 minute walk...great location.
Stayed first 2 weeks of Feb. 2015....Very clean rooms...great location on Hidalgo and very close to the beautiful North Beach.....staff was friendly and accommodating....would stay there again....

Hotel Plaza Almendros

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Location, affordability
Cons: Water pressure, cleanliness of the room, noisy refrigerator (we unplugged it so that we could sleep as it clanged loudly every time it turned on/off).
Location: Lots to do nearby...on Hildago! Shopping, eating, drinking, etc..and only a block and half from Playa Norte.
This was a pleasant stay for an economical hotel. Location was great - surrounded by everything from restaurants, cafes, ice cream and plenty of shopping. The shop owners were a little on the aggressive side at times with efforts to lure us in. Staff and Almendros were friendly for the most part. Ben stationed at the front, selling excursions, golf cart rentals, etc, was wonderful! We enjoyed chatting with him every morning on our way out. Note: he is not staff for Almendros but one of the best features. The beds are hard, like others have noted, but I like hard beds. We requested two queens, got two doubles. Pillows were either lumpy or flat... should have brought one from home. A/C and access to microwave and a small fridge were terrific bonuses (I've heard many small hotels lack these amenities). Another great feature is the pool in the back courtyard. If you like a family or community feeling, this back courtyard is for you! Although the woman who cleaned our room daily was friendly, cleaning staff do not do a good job. A qtip was in the corner of the bathroom when we arrived, and it was still there when we left (6 days later). Gelatinous gunk was on the bathroom wall, as was mould in several places. I did speak to desk staff about the mould upon arrival, as I'm allergic to it, but it was never removed. Also, the shower pressure is hit and miss - sometimes good, other times you had to dance beneath a single drop of water to rinse off.

Convenient Location

Posted Feb 4, 2015
This is a clean, no frills place to stay, right in the middle of everything. If you are planning to basically sleep at your hotel, and use the days enjoying the island, this is the perfect place!
