    I love all of these hotels. My hubby and I decided to splurge and stay at Mia Reef Isla for a few nights during our Cancun trip. We would have never even know about Isla Mujeres without this website, so thank you for this.

    We always stay at the Palace Hotels. They are a bit pricey, but the food is the best in any of the all inclusive resorts we’ve tried. By a LOT.

      Agreed. the Cozumel Palace is easily the best food at an AI on that island too.
