We found the Mimi del Mar to be exactly what we were looking for on this trip. It's quaint, quiet, right on the beach (literally) and in a perfect location at the end of Calle 4 where it meets the beach. Rooms are basic but have great a/c, ceiling fan, kitchen, tv with quite a few English channels, great water...

We spent a week in Cozumel and, due to an early flight out of Cancun, needed a place for one night in Playa on our way out. We selected Mimi del Mar based on it's location and reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We arrived on the ferry from Coz at about noon. Check-in time isn't until 3:00 pm,...

We wanted a small hotel on the beach and walking distance to 5th ave --- boy was this it! We arrived at 10:pm and were able to be dropped right at the end of the street -- they greeted us and carried our luggage over the sand. Checked in and it was an OLDER room -- but everything worked and...

Of the many times I've been to 'Playa', this was probably my best vacation. We loved being right on the beach. Our room was nice, clean, and every thing worked--especially plenty of hot water. Our transfer company dropped us at Ave 10 & Calle 4. At Ave 5, two female employees from "Mimi del Mar" caught up to us, and...

We arrived in the new Terminal 3 with no problems. We continued outside and immediately found our transportation that I had arranged with Brant’s Entertainment Plus. We were on the road in minutes. Our driver dropped us and our luggage off on 10th Ave at calle 2. He pointed to the beach and said our hotel was that way and...

We stayed at Mimi for 4 days and are in love with this little rustic hotel. Beforehand we stayed at a large 5* for 3 days and were a bit worried that Mimi would disappoint. No worries! If we had to choose between the two, Mimi would win hands down. The location is wonderful, staff super helpful, clean rooms lovely...

We stayed at the Mimi Del Mar from April 21st - April 28th 2007. Location - the hotel is RIGHT on the beach, literally, in fact you have to walk through a few feet of sand to get to it It's only about a block away from Quinta Avenida, which made it very convenient, yet quiet and peaceful. It is...

Please read the reviews posted in 2007 for some good information! I’ll try to add to it. We were there March 3 – 10. This really is a nice, quaint hotel right on the beach. Not “posh” but very comfortable; just what we wanted! We stayed in ocean-front room 208 with a huge balcony. There is a wall on one...

My husband and I spent 5 weeks at the Mimi del Mar from December 28 to February 1. We have previously only stayed at All-inclusive resorts with a 3½ star rating or better and I must admit that I was a little concerned about having booked 5 weeks at a 2 star hotel. But I don’t have a bad thing...

Hotel is simple, clean and a GREAT location. If you are not looking for complete luxury, but a nice firm bed, clean and simple - this is the place. Can't ask for better. RIght on the beach and just off the main drag of 5th avenue. We stayed in a Standard room, which had a queen bed, nice sized shower...
