Very inexpensive if you book directly through them! I paid $60 for one night when all travel websites listed them at at least $100 per night! Really neat hotel. Wonderful made to order breakfast. Lovely front desk people.

We stayed here due to cost, previous reviews and location close to the ADO bus terminal--about three blocks away over a pedestrian bridge. The rooms are large, beds comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The tropical grounds are attractive and the breakfast was good. Would have no problem in recommending it to others.

This hotel is basic, but clean, comfortable and safe. I'm not a big fan of Cancun, but this hotel offers good accommodation for a reasonable price. The lush courtyard is lovely. Breakfast is included in the room price.

One night stay while transferring through Cancun. As others mentioned, location is very close to the ADO Bus Station. The tropical tress, plants, pots and general jungle feel of the courtyard provide a nice setting for the interior part of the hotel. The room was spacious, bed comfortable and Internet good. Breakfast was included and decent as well. Would recommend... More

The welcome was warm, the room smelt damp but then it didn't occur to us that we needed a key to turn on the air-conditioning until our last day (doh!), otherwise the room was fine. Breakfast was lovely and served in a nice open area by a friendly lady. The hotel is in a good location downtown, and if you... More

Well, Cancun is not my kind of place, but arriving late we had to choose a Hotel and rather than opting for an all inn resort thing, we opted for El Rey. The room was large, clean and comfortable.

We were very happy with our one-night stay at this hotel. I have only one grizzle (and it is why have given the place a 'Very good' and not an 'Excellent') and this was that after we had checked out and were waiting for our transfer to the airport, we were asked to pay an extra USD$4 for our room...

My husband and I had one spontaneous night here after a missed connection in Cancun meant we needed to stay overnight before a rescheduled flight. Rather than stay in one of the big flashy all inclusive resorts, we decided to head to downtown Cancun and find somewhere there - this hotel was recommended in the Lonely Planet, so we decided...

The El Rey del Caribe is a gem. It is close to the centre of downtown Cancun but the courtyard interior is mini tropical rainforest. Very quiet and very beautiful.
