      This small and quaint Hotel is away from it all - truly Mexican in design, its grounds are surrounded by a tiny botanical garden which is well kept. This garden makes the swimming pool seem like a private enclave, with no high-rise mega-hotels in sight. My room was surprisingly large. Taxis are always nearby, and one can hop on a Kukulkan Aveneda bus. I took the bus twice, but you must know where you're stop is, because the drivers know just a few English words.

      The negative aspects are: Not easy to find if you arrive by bus. You need to drive to the beach - I suggest Playa Coracol - or take the bus. Cannot make long-distance calls from the room. Must be careful at swimming pool (specially in the evening) for the low-lying palms which can hit your face.

      This was the 2nd time I had stayed here, it it reasonably priced, clean, good location, nice food, would recommend!

    • Group of friends

      The staff and the hotel are nice. The breakfast is simple (bread, butter, jam, coffee, orange juice, cereal and milk) but enough and you take it along the lagoon which is pleasant. There are buses just outside the hotel all the time which can bring you easly downtown or in the hotel area to access the beach and go to the shopping malls or night clubs.

      It is not on the beach and with all the other hotels, it is not possible to access the beach directly on the other side of the road. But cheap buses are available.

      The price and location of this hotel were excellant. We only stayed one night but it suited us just fine.

      The room seemed to be damp but this may have been the atmosphere created by the tropical garden.

      The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom comfortable.

      Breakfast only included some toast with jam.

      Luxurious natural plants & foliage, has a "jungle" atmosphere. Hotel does not have a beach, but public one is close by. Hotel is close to the town, and there are shops (pharmacy, minimart, souvenir) close by. Room was very quiet & private

      pesky birds at breakfast time

      it was cheap

      the phone did not work, no cable, funny smell in the room, cannot exchange money at the hotel or anywhere close by... room locks not very secure, narrow pathways... short bus trip to hotel zone, though.

      Hotel works are very helpful, and it's colse to bus stop

      there was no loud music downstairs, it was easy to fall asleep. nothing was stolen (thanks God), although there were lots of alarm-messages in forums (we've found them after paying the hotel). free wi-fi, not only in the lobby but also in our room, that was nice. the room was big enough.

      location - about 15 minutes walk to the nearest beach or maybe 25, there are two nice playas in that area. it took us too long to get to the city center. continental breakfast - not that nice... we had to call the manager twice (!) when we found a huge cockroach in the bathroom. the price is too high if you are not going to rent a place fro your yacht. in reality with tax the price was almost twice bigger than we were thinking of it.

      I liked the peace and quiet. The natural surroundings.

      There was no direct access to the beach and the beds were unconfortable and the food wasn't all that good.

    • Couple
      5.4

      I don't like it. There is no promised wi-fi in the room, only one towel for two people. You have to wait hot water near 15 min after opening it. There is no tea on the breakfast.

    • Couple
      5.8

      Very good positioning, just enough far away from "zona hotelera"

      Room were nice and clean enough (Oct.2011). Unfortunately you can clearly understand every whispered word form your neighbor.
