We always do a lot of research before booking and it is always with some hesitation when you arrive at the hotel as to whether it is going to live up to expectations. I am a little late in this review however the hotel does deserve a comment. Outside is not that impressive but the oasis inside after a hot... More

My husband and I spent only one night in this hotel, on our way back from Merida. We chose it mainly because it was affordable, had parking and was relatively close to the airport, as we were flying back to Europe early in the morning. We were in for a nice surprise, because the room was very spacious -it had... More

Friendly staff, comfortable beds, lush garden pool, yummy breakfast and away from the touristy areas. Who could ask for more? It isn't on the beach, but in the center of town and easy to get around walking or a cab. Cab rides are definitely an adventure.

This is a garden with hotel rooms attached! Beautiful setting with large clean rooms that reflect style and charm. After a hot dusty day to sit by the pool or on one of the many terraces with a cold beer in hand and the birds in the the trees overhead is a holiday in itself. The staff a very friendly... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. What we liked: - Beautiful garden and pool - Spacious and clean room - Nice breakfast included - Friendly and helpful staff - Central location close to bus terminal, restaurants and night life What can be improved: It's tricky to walk to this hotel from the ADO bus station. Even though it's... More

We returned to El Rey this year for our first and last nights on the Yucatan Peninsula. We still loved the garden setting, the peacefulness in the midst of the city. The hotel itself seemed to need a little sprucing up, but nothing major. The rooms are clean and comfortable. On our last night we discovered that if you walk... More

So hotel and the garden is beatiful. The location is so so. If you know what you are looking for, the location is fine, next to the bus station, and if you are travelling inland, it is probably decent. If, on the other hand you came to cancun, keep in mind, you will be living on the busy street, next... More

What a jewel in central Cancun. If you choose not to stay (with all your fellow Americans) in the resort hotel district, but rather in the heart of Cancun, Hotel el Rey Del Caribe is the place. It is an older hotel, but the rooms are large and clean, the beds are comfortable, the staff is helpful and pleasant and... More

We just stayed 1 night in el Rey Del Caribe. Clean hotel, big, but oldfashioned room, small breakfast with choice, nice tropical garden with very small pool. The big pro of the hotel is its situation, at 400 m from the main busstation. Even with luggage, it is possible to walk to the busstation.No need to call for a taxi.... More
