“our vaca ation last Feb.”
Reviewed 14 July 2009

We have been to Cozumel 5 times now and we only started our trip there this time and went down south to Xcalak.
We stay at Hotel Pepita where the staff are always helpful and friendly, it is always clean, they have gotten new comfy beds and you always meet interesting people there and it is within our budget-35-40 dollars.
The downside is everyone was charging in dollars?? Big surprise since we were in Mexico!! I did not like that at all. It was way more expensive than 2001-inflation.....
I was NOT impressed with the new ferry station house, what an ugly eyesore that is and they think that they are doing it for us.??
I don't know about most travelers but, we are easy, happy go lucky and like the culture of a foreign counrty-we are not going someplace to find it is wanting to be American.
The "Real' Mexico we saw was wonderful and we saw new stuff on this trip.
I rented our car through Costco and it was very CHEAP!!! We drove it down to Xcalak and back through Ruins.
The jeep we rented in Cozumel for one day cost almost as much as the car we rented for a week. One other thing-If you rent a car thinking you are getting 4X4, don't believe it-they take out the 4X4 of every vehicle.
Our favorite pottery guy is still there and our favorite place to eat real Mexican food besides the street, is just a couple of blocks from the hotel and it is GREAT food and very reasonable.
We are trying to get back there this winter and spend less time in the ever increasing touristy Cozumel. We love Mexico.

Great place to stay and rest. I was well pleased with the room.Nice bed, air conditioning, Hot water. These rooms are not high Quality but are nice for the price. 3500 pecos. About 27.00 US a night with a 13.75 excange rate. Great places to eat near by. All the comforts of home. Have a spanish speaking friend make reservations for you. They are not good with english. I aways felt safe there and walking the streets around it. It is two blocks from the tourist area for your convenience. GOOD Stuff.

I've stayed here dozens of times. Cheap, clean, and honest. Lost $300.00 cash in room, house keeper found it 2 days later under bed and placed it on end table. Gave her $100.00 for her honesty. This family is very friendly, help you with what ever. With thousands in dive gear honesty and safety go a long way. close to town and local markets. go back one block to the market for fresh OJ and other juice, fruit. Enjoy!

if you want a cheap place to stay, this is definitly it! i only saw other mexicans staying here- its more in town, no pool, just the basics. for $35 a night, its a steal!!! it's clean and the people are very friendly and you are close to everything you could need. i dont spend much time at the hotel, just to sleep and for that, its more than enough.

Pepita is very clean, has powerful a/c and has a great location. While it's not beachfront, it is a great place to stay for people who like to mix it up with the locals. Close to great restaurants like la Choza and Los Otates, close to good shopping, and really, only like three blocks from the beach. It was only $35/night, which made it possible to do things like rent a car and drive to the other side of the island.

Staff is very friendly and low key. Highly recommend if you're the type who goes on vacation to wander away from the hotel. I did stay my last night in Cozumel at a beachside resort (cost five times as much), but that allowed me to also have the relaxing atmosphere of the resort beach...
