Hotel Francis Arlene. Mexico.

Founded twenty years ago by the Magaña Rios Family, the adults only Hotel Francis Arlene was set up with the aim of being helpful to guests who were visiting the area for the first time and to welcome them not only as clients but as friends.

With a small staff who can always be relied upon to provide a warm and personable service to guests, this mission has been accomplished as they have established many a long lasting friendship over the last two decades and are set to create more in the coming years.


There are twenty six rooms, and in trying to maintain the flavour of the island these are decorated in a Caribbean and Mexican style. There are two terraces, one on the roof and one around the back of the building where they’ve hung hammocks for guests to hang around in.

To make sure that guests are as comfortable as they can be, many of the rooms have kitchenettes and balconies. All of them have included WIFI and the maintenance of the rooms and property is top notch, with the staff checking on every detail during the stay.


One of the fundamentals that the owners of Hotel Francis Arlene believe in is relationship building. They do their best to accommodate the needs of their guests, keeping personal health and safety as a priority with the goal of making their guests feel truly at home.

This has certainly worked as some visitors have been returning to their hotel for years and staying for periods of over a month at a time. It is natural that over time, everyone shifts from being guests and customers to being friends and a part of the Hotel Francis Arlene family.


So very close to the coast there is plenty to do including fishing trips, whale shark spotting and swimming, snorkelling, diving and many other water activities. Nearby are also a range of restaurants and cafes to visit and with its central location there are many treasures to be found to enthral, entertain and educate.


Lock boxes are provided in the rooms for passports, money and other items of value and the property has security cameras stationed all around to keep guests safe.
