Reviewed 15 September 2017

My girlfriend and I went to Isla Mujeres for a nice five-day getaway. Casa El Pio itself was one of the highlights. It's a beautiful, clean little hotel and a great home base for the island.

We didn't really know what to expect from the trip in general, doing minimal research and wanting to mainly relax.

As soon as we made the trek from the airport to the ferry to the island (which was easy to book with the help of Casa El Pio) we only had to walk five minutes to get to the hotel. There we were greeted with a quick tour of the place and then were given a complimentary beer and tequila shot, which was a really nice touch!

After that we explored and realized just how close the hotel is to everything from food to golf carts to the beach. The room was great and a beautiful space, the pool was more needed than I expected (a great way to unwind after a busy morning trekking around the island and before dinner plans), and the rooftop deck was used every early morning to watch the sunrise before we went running along the water.

They also have a guest book with personalized stories and recommendations, which helped us find some places that were off the Yelp/Trip Advisor path.

Overall, a truly wonderful experience!

This tiny hotel is beautiful & very well maintained. Rooms are cleaned daily. Very immaculate. The rooftop has seating and a lovely view of the rocky surf. You are less than a block from the main town square where there is nightly basketball and weekend events. The weekend we were there was the annual pageant for Abuelas & Abuelos. It was awesome. In the evenings we all soaked out tired legs in the small pool and drank tequila. Jose is the manager and helped us book a very affordable private snorkeling trip for $45US per person. Ask for Captain Roberto and his side man Rafael. The boat was barely seaworthy and we had a great time. After taking us to five different snorkel locations and the turtle hatchery we went to an open air community kitchen where he prepared us lunch with a fish he caught earlier. I have zero complaints about Casa El Pio.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4. It was very quiet and cozy. All the rooms were lovely.

My girlfriend and I spent a week in IM to see the Whale Sharks and having Casa El Pio as our home away from home was wonderful. The weather was very hot and humid and to be able to return to our lil oasis with plunge pool, lovely and clean air conditioned room, or to retreat to top deck and nap was so welcomed. It is convenient to the central north end of island that a 10 minute walk at most got you to Playa de Norte and the beautiful white sand beach and clear waters. Great yoga classes at Bliss overlooking the beach. Jose, the concierge, can arrange all trips for you and you can't go wrong with the Hotel's recommendation on where to eat and things to do.

This little 5-roomed hotel is sparkling clean and pleasant. It is walking distance to everything in the north end of the island. The rooftop terrace is beautiful and the hotel is also a short walk to the boardwalk on the east side of the island which is great for a morning run or walk.
We appreciated solid advice from the staff on where to eat and what to do. There is a taco cart near the entrance that serves delicious food and a grocery store across the square.
We were in room #5 which has the town view. We didn't mind this at all. The only issue was a dog that barked non-stop all night. The guests in the other rooms were farther in and didn't hear the noise.
We loved this island and will be back!!

Forget about the big hotels, this is where you want to stay! The manager is so kind and very communicative and the maids are kind and work their magic without you ever seeing them. The rooms are immaculate! There is a cool roof top deck with a perfect view of the sunrise. There is a perfect little pool to relax in and cool off and a hammock which stretches across the room. It's in a great location away from the noise, but close enough to the main side street with some great resturaunts - Rooster, Lola Valentina, and the little ice cream place on the corner. We even went a watched a local basketball game nearby. Casa el Pio was the perfect little getaway!

Room Tip: #4 was the best...feels like it has 2 separate rooms. Wifi is good near the "kitchen" win...
