    First to Review

    Rancho Sak Ol is an old school hotel on the beach, about a 20-minute walk from Puerto Morelos’ main plaza. It’s a charming place with rooms that are decorated in different themes—the reef, dolphins, petroglyphs, etc.—and have (securely) hanging beds. They are located in a set of 2-story structures with thatch-roofs; those towards the front get the best breezes. There also is a common building which has a fully-equipped kitchen for guest use, tables and chairs, and even an interior sandy area for kids to play when it’s too hot outside. The beach could use a bit of tending and is bare of almost any palm trees, but beyond that it’s decent. The owners—a bilingual Mexican couple—offer a great wealth of information about the area too, which is nice when you’re trying to schedule your time. (Bike loans are included in the rate.)

  • Rancho Sak-Ol

    It’s hard not to be charmed by Rancho Sak Ol, though it really could use some updates. Despite being squeezed between El Cid resort and the large shipping port, Sak Ol still manages to feel like an isolated getaway. The grounds are tidy and there's a large beach area (just ignore the big container ships off to your left). The dining area is cool and welcoming, with a high palapa roof and screened windows. The guest rooms occupy a series of two-story bungalows; the downstairs units have air-conditioners, while the upper ones have fans only, but have high palapa roofs and get good light and sea breezes. The beds hang from ropes from the ceiling; climbing in can be a bit awkward, but the gentle rocking is worth the trouble. Rooms are clean and comfortable, but definitely showing their age – at some point, the grime just doesn’t come off anymore, and total overhaul is due. The owners are friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area; ask about Sak Ol’s sister lodge along the “Ruta de Cenotes”.
