we stayed 6 nights with 4 girls- ages 16, 14, 12 and 10. the kids never complained of being bored. lots of activities. the food was great and so were the staff. the only complaint was the bed- stated it was a king size, but was a full and the matress was very hard. We would definitely go back even if we didn't sleep well.
This is a good place to stay at if your primary concern is price. For about 20 bucks a night you get a good-sized two bed cabana (cabin) with AC. And that's about it. They also have tenting camp sites, trailer/camper sites with hookup and single bed cabins. It also comes with a small but decent swimming pool. Free WiFi is also included, but service very slow evenings.
The cabin condition, except for the AC, is pretty rustic. Tight washroom and shower. No hot water. Occasional insects. At dusk the campsite is infested with mosquitoes, so not very comfortable then. Though, inside the cabana, the mosquitoes were not a problem for us.
There is a restaurant "The Rice" on site which prepares some pretty basic food with average price. There is a small corner store a five minute walk north of the campground and a bigger OXXO store about 15 min. south.
I wouldn't use the local beach. Not much else to see there except the El Meco Mayan ruins next to the camp ground, and which are part of the campground itself.
We used the campground as a staging ground for trips in the Cancun area and the Mayan Riviera. For that it was quite adequate. Most tour companies provide hotel pick-up, but not to the Mecoloco Inn / campground. for about 8-10 pesos you can take a minibus to the nearest pickup place at the Ultramar Ferry terminal.
The hotel is NOT in Puerto Juarez, but in Cancun near the junction of Avenida Tulum and Avenida Chichen Itza making it about 1.5 miles from the ferry and .5 as stated.
The accommodations were sparse, having only one sheet and a bed spread. Two sheets would let a person believe he was the first person using the bed spread. I had the same towel for the entire week, so it was always damp.
The Villa was nice from the inside but the outside seemed unsafe place to stay. If you have problems going upstairs without an elevators be sure to request a first floor villa. The swimming pool is small but it was big enough to cool off. Also, since I arrived I requested towels which I did not get until the last night I was there. Even though we didn't get towels till the last night all the staff were very nice.
Puerto Juarez is best known for its pier, where visitors catch the ferry for Isla Mujeres. The small, seaside village is an alternative to the booming nightlife of the Cancun Hotel Zone. Regular bus service connects Puerto Juarez with Cancun Downtown and the Hotel Zone.
