We loved its atmosphere, very quite and give us perfect privacy.
Staffs are super friendly, they even went through all the trouble to get our money back from local agency which gave us frustration of standing up chitchenitza excursion bus.
Breakfast isn't buffet, but I even loved it more.
Honestly I would stay here again.
Near yet far from the crowds of hotel zone, this is a five room bed and breakfast. When we stayed in February, we were the only guest. A two person team took good care of us. We even had the fresh dinner every night and great breakfast in the morning, which was included in the stay.
Few things to be noted, the bar is only on paper, no choice, could even get a martini. The absentee owner, i think does not care. They can offer a van ride to the hotel zone, but they do not. Though the main road is about half a mile but for us it was a drawback. the guests are expected to pay in cash Wonder why? The CC machines do not work.
Otherwise a cozy place to enjoy the lagoon and peace.
My wife and I just returned from our week-long stay at Casa Margarita. I will say up front that this hotel is fantastic, so long as you realize what you're getting into. This bed and breakfast is kind of on the fringe of what would be considered the "Hotel Zone", and even then it is on a peninsula that is isolated from the main thoroughfare by a golf course and a bridge. Now, I'll break down some of the main points to take into account when considering a stay here.
Transportation: You're not in the resort center, so walking most places generally isn't an option. The one exception is walking about 20-25 minutes to Playa Tortuga. More on that in a bit. The most convenient, but more expensive option, is to taxi. Most trips will generally be $100-300 pesos (~$5-15 at the time of our visit) depending on the time of day and how far you're going. Even in the relatively quiet district that Casa Margarita is in (Pok-Ta-Pok), we were able to find a taxi within 5 minutes of walking out the front door. The second option is taking the local buses. This option might seem a bit scary at first, but after one or two rides we found they were actually quite quick and not a big deal. Routes R1 and R2 will go most places you would be interested in going (Hotel Zone and Downtown) and one of those buses comes to the stop that is about .5 mile from Casa Margarita every minute or so...probably more frequently. Lots of buses. A bus ride was $10.50 pesos per person, or about $.60 USD. Alternatively, you can pay $1 USD per person to ride. As with most things there, it's a better deal to use Pesos. If you use Pesos, the bus drivers can make change. The fees are one-way, so you can ride all the way to the end of the line, at which point you'll have to buy another ticket to go back.
Accommodations: This is where Casa Margarita excels. For the price, I'm not sure you're going to find a better room in Cancun. Beautiful lobby and kitchen. Marble floors in the rooms and a wonderful bed. At least in our suite, the bathroom was incredible, and probably rivaled the square footage of the room. Huge tub with jets, large glassed shower with "rain" type shower head. Large walk-in closet with safe. Nice balcony if you're into that sort of thing. We never used ours, but the rooms have large, modern, HDTVs. The one minor detractor was that you have to ring a bell to get into the property, since they keep the outer gate locked most of the time. We never had an issue with someone not immediately coming to open the door, but if the staff is busy or in other areas of the house, you may have to wait a bit to get in.
Breakfast: The breakfast was usually quite simple, but delicious. You're not going to find the huge spread that you would find at a resort, but what you will get is delicious fresh fruit, eggs, fresh salsas, quesadillas, beans, and so on. We always just ate what was being served, but from interactions I saw with other guests, they were pretty accommodating with special requests. Some people asked for just fruit and one guy asked for a bowl of cereal and they gave it to them with a smile.
Staff: The staff were extremely gracious and friendly. We got two free Coronas when we arrived, so I'm probably biased. Only a couple of the staff are fluent in English (the awesome receptionist, Nina I think, and the manager), and a couple more understand a little bit, so I'll admit that being a decently capable Spanish speaker probably made things a bit easier for my wife and I.
Amenities: The pool was always VERY clean. The back patio area has luscious green grass and plenty of benches, chairs, and tables for you to admire the lagoon or enjoy the evening sun. There is a hot tub as well. We used it once. It was nice but it never did get very hot. This could have been user error, though, since it is somewhat "do-it-yourself". Don't swim in the lagoon. As signs all around will tell you, it's a massive crocodile area and there have been instances of attacks in the past. Just ask the locals.
Can I walk to the Beach? Yes, albeit it depends on what type of beach experience you want. The closest public access beach you can walk to is Playa Tortuga, to which we walked every day but one. There are reviews for the beach on Trip Advisor. If you want a chance to hang out at a beach and relax like the Mexicans, Playa Tortuga is the place. The restaurant located there, Three Amigos, has tons of shaded tables and chairs you can use. The only stipulation is you have to buy something. Otherwise there is a rental fee. No worries though, you'll want to order something. Their cocktails were all delicious and HUGE ($7 USD for what had to be a 32 oz Margarita!), the beer is reasonably priced and always cold ($2-3 USD), and the beach food (ceviche, nachos, guacamole, fried fish, etc.) is on point. Some local vendors walk the beach selling other foods that were delicious as well. Don't worry, they aren't pushy. For the most part, you are left alone to relax, only occasionally interrupted by the chill waiters (who speak varying levels of English, but usually enough to get the job done) asking if they can bring you a fresh beer. Another bonus, is that the water at Playa Tortuga is MUCH calmer than most beaches, so you can actually swim.
In summary, I think if you are looking for a hotel that gives you peace and quiet from the raucous hotel zone (I'm looking at you Coco Bongo), the flexibility to visit Downtown, and a smaller, intimate setting, it would be hard to do better than Casa Margarita.
