My family and I stayed here December 26th through January 1st. This is a great place. The owner, Dan, was extremely helpful and provided great recommendations for restaurants and a wonderful beach club, Buccanos, which I highly recommend. Chef Daniel cooked delicious breakfasts for us and always greeted us warmly, and even helped get us taxis to/from the dive shop we used (Deep Blue.) Overall, Casita de Maya is a great home base for Cozumel. It's affordable, charming, literally right across from the airport, and the staff treats you like family. Thanks Dan and to the entire staff!

This is a hidden gem amongst a residential neighborhood within walking distance of the airport. Don't let others tell you differently, it is safe to journey around even the deepest regions of Cozumel. The views of the culture are wonderful to see. Everyone, primarily Chef Daniel and Edwardo, are 2 of the greatest people you will meet at any destination. Chef Daniel is a top notch gourmet cook and will delight you non-stop. He also makes extraordinary drinks and his bloody Mary and margarita will not disappoint. He comes from many years at a large hotel. One thing to keep in mind is there is no kitchen at Casita. Chef Daniel must go to his home to prepare meals. Drinks are prepared on sight. That bothered me to put him out of his way to cook. Running back and forth to his home with meals on a motorcycle. This was the only thing that I could say was other than perfect and keep in mind, it's only a feeling of mine. Again the food was beyond great. The hustle and bustle are a few miles away at the waterfront, where the cruise ships anchor. I like being away from that and being able to visit it with a short 100 peso cab ride whenever you want. If you want crowds all the time of tourists, book your room there. But keep in mind, Casita is the number one or number 2 ranked hotel on the island. One tip, stores at the waterfront charge more while the ships are in port. Wait till after 5 when they pull out to negotiate better prices of bobbles and trinkets. Daniel the manager (not Chef Daniel) can help with daily activities, getting a cab or rental car or anything else you may need. He has several connections. Today as I write this review, we are preparing to go on the 3 hour gourmet pirate dinner cruise on a pirate ship. All the alcohol you want for about $85 per person. I will try to check back in to inform how the cruise was.

This hotel is very small, but has a more authentic feel to it. Dan, the owner, and his staff are kind, welcoming, and they went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Dan was even kind enough to walk us over to a new restaurant for dinner! We enjoyed a lovely evening in the courtyard, dipping our feet in the pool after a very long day, having delicious drinks. Coffee was served right to our door next morning promptly at 9:00, and they sent us on our way to the next place. The rooms are adorable, and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a convenient place to stay near the airport.

Hotel is super cute with pool and wonderful patio. Walking distance from airport and they can help you set up transportation and activities. Owner Dan really looks out for your best interest and Eduardo and his wonderful family takes care of the grounds and basically your every need. Rooms were clean and we were well taken care of. We rented a moped for the week and we’re able to get anywhere on the island easily from this hotel so you will need transportation. They have parking available and really go above and beyond. Food is available to order by Chef Dan as well as many local restaurants not far and of course the main strip if that’s what you desire (5 minutes drive). This was a wonderful hotel experience where we were taken care of without the hassle of being in the middle of all the tourist area, loud music, and partying. We loved casita de maya. Thank you Dan Thank you Eduardo and family (especially Ele the future boss)

All the reviews sum things up pretty well! This is a wonderful place. We had stayed a week at the Presidente resort, and while very nice and great for snorkeling, it was also very expensive. A 2-day flight delay required us to change hotels and we thought we'd go with the one closest to - across the street from - the airport. Very handy. What a bonus that it is such a wonderful little hotel! Very comfortable, great meals, clean rooms, charming atmosphere and very friendly staff. Dan, the owner, is never intrusive but always helpful with advice and practical matters - he even drove us down to get our pre-flight Covid tests! We loved being in town and away from Resortland. The area is very safe and our post-dinner walk back from El Moro (great restaurant) was downright romantic. The legendary Diego's is a block away for an easy lunch and cabs are readily available to go to the center of town, though it is certainly walkable if you enjoy walking. Of course you will want to get to the ocean while you are in Cozumel! Easily arranged, though if you have time it might make sense to spend half your stay at a place on the water and half at Casita de Maya. In any event, it is a wonderful place.

Must Love Dogs This boutique hotel was the perfect chill out spot. Convenient-we walked to the hotel from the airport . Yes it’s literally a 5 minute walk. When you exit the airport. Look for the Alamo car rental sign (across the street) the hotel is located next to the Alamo. Check in was seamless. If you have knee issues ask for one of the 1st floor rooms. The stairs to the 2nd level are a little steep. Rooms are comfortable. We stayed on the second level which had a lounge deck right off of our room . Great spot for morning coffee, breakfast or cigar smoke. The service was impeccable from Dan and his small staff (Daniel, Eduardo, Joli). If he's available, he'll run you to nearby places in his car. We caught up on our steps by walking to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. We were also impressed with how friendly the locals are and how we felt safe, even after dark. We went to the waterfront where the ships dock, but didn't like how aggressive the shop owners were to get you into their places of business. We literally ran to escape the relentless requests and got back to the less touristy neighborhoods. There are a few resident dogs that we found to be utterly delightful. Super friendly. There were also a couple of puppies next door at the rental car place that my wife would've smuggled home if she could've. (They, and their mom were adopted by the locals before we left). A great home away from home with Dan, the best host on the island. If you love dogs and like a laid back place to stay, this is your spot.

Joli, Eduardo, Daniel and Dan are the best hosts on the island. The hotel is great. It has a bed and breafast feel that can't be beaten. Dan has contacts everywhere and can hook you up with rentals, tours, food or whatever you need. I am definitely coming back.

Definitely just like home and family! Probably our 19th time staying at Casita de Maya and just as lovely and wonderful as the first! Rooms, AC and location all great, but what makes the place is the owner Dan and the entire staff! So accommodating, helpful and top notch service! Daniel (the cook) prepares wonderful dishes, even on short notice, Jolie keeps rooms in spotless condition and Eduardo an all around great guy and can help with anything! And lets not forget the 3 dogs, Freddy, Bigotes and Cholat,,,your home away from home pets! All safety protocols followed A wonderful place and would never dream of staying anywhere else! Looking forward to the 11th visit!

Wow, the hospitality showed to our family was incredible. Dan and the team really worked hard to ensure we were well taken care of. Daniels guacamole was the best on the island. The whole team worked hard to ensure our stay was great even in the rain. If your looking for 5 star luxury this is not it. If your looking for a quaint heartfelt, great time with cold beer, clean, safe, and run by fantastic people than this is your spot. Find this hidden gem! We were going to stay at an all inclusive 4 star spot but cancelled our reservations when we saw all poor reviews of the food. We wanted our kids to feel the Cozumel vibe not just stay at a resort. Dan gave us so many great restaurant rec's as well as fantastic beach clubs. We lived like kings eating, drinking and snorkeling our way though the island and had a blast. Big shout out the the team who made our stay special, we look forward to returning. Pro tip: ask Dan to assist with Jeep rental. Also DO NOT CAB from the airport. We walked and I had 5 large bags and my 2 young daughters! We were fine.

This one night stay at this sweet hotel was one of the highlights of our trip. So personal, the staff totally bent over backwards to make our stay the best it could be. We had a nice dinner made by the resident chef and the kids enjoyed swimming in the pool. It was very chill and relaxing to sit by the pool, drink in hand and listen to the music playing softly in the background. The rooms were clean and authentic. This place couldn’t have been more perfect for us. I was a little worried it wasn’t on the beach, but we didn’t miss it. We had to leave to catch the ferry at 6:15 and a taxi was called and coffee was hot for us on the way out the door. Thank you so much Dan and Daniel for your kindness and hospitality.
