Hotel Bucaneros is a 16-room hotel located on vibrant Avenida
Hidalgo, within a 10-minute walk of gorgeous Playa Norte (North Beach). Guest
rooms at this two-and-a-half pearl hotel are pleasant and functional, some include narrow balconies, separate sitting areas, and small kitchenettes. There isn't a pool, and the hotel’s ambience is unremarkable overall, but its clean rooms
and excellent location make it a solid choice for travelers seeking a no-nonsense
base with free breakfast. As an alternative, guest rooms at Hotel Plaza Almendros down the street are more
worn, but rates are often significantly lower, and there’s an outdoor pool
Hotel Bucaneros’ modest entrance can be challenging to spot
at first, as it's tucked among the many shops and restaurants crammed along bustling Avenida
Hidalgo. The swirl of activity outside on the street seems to emphasize the bland
atmosphere encountered upon stepping into the hotel’s dimly-lit lobby. Furniture includes a carved wooden sofa and worn bookcase that holds faded magazines and dated bestsellers. The lobby leads to a small courtyard that's filled with vibrant potted plants. Limited seating
and lack of a pool or restaurant means there aren’t any compelling reasons for guests to
spend much time at the hotel. Instead, most guests, both families and couples, seem to focus on taking advantage
of the beach and other diverse entertainment options found nearby, returning to the
hotel only to sleep.
location, less than a 10-minute walk from Playa Norte
Hotel Bucaneros is located on Avenida Hidalgo, one of the busiest
streets in Isla Mujeres' small downtown core. There are dozens of shops and
restaurants found directly outside the hotel, as well as along the surrounding streets. The hotel is less than half-a-mile, or a 10-minute walk, from the island’s
main beach, Playa Norte. It’s also a five-minute walk to the ferry terminal,
where boats run to and from Cancun. Parking at the hotel is free, but most guests arrive via ferry.
include flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges
The 16 guest rooms at Hotel Bucaneros look tasteful overall, decorated
in muted beige and cream tones with austere tile floors. Most rooms include
dark-wood dressing tables with mirrors, or small table-and-chair setups. Gold leaf-print or striped white bedspreads look fresh. All
rooms offer air-conditioning units, ceiling fans, and flat-screen TVs. Large
closets hold small safes, hangers, and a few drawers. Each has a mini-fridge as well as a pitcher and glasses, which can be filled with drinking water at dispensers found in the hallway on each floor.
Narrow balconies with views over Avenida
Hidalgo are a nice feature in front-facing rooms. Some rooms also offer a
kitchenette area, complete with cutlery and dishes, hot plates, and coffeemakers.
The neutral tones of the bedrooms continue in the bathrooms,
which are stocked with a small bottle of off-brand shampoo and bar of soap. Bathrooms can include a separate bathtub or just a shower.
Free daily buffet
breakfast and pleasant outdoor courtyard
Features here are limited, as most guests spend their days exploring. One nice perk is the free breakfast, served in a quiet room on the hotel’s upper
level, with seating at white plastic tables. The buffet features a few different
choices of cereal, toast, juice, coffee, yogurt, and fruit.
There’s a small leafy courtyard with a patio table found
toward the back of the hotel. An independently-owned restaurant attached to
the hotel, Compadres, offers Mexican cuisine, pastas, and seafood. The
restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, but the connection
is spotty in most guest rooms. And beach towels are offered with payment of a
