Less than two blocks from the ADO bus station, the main bus line to the beaches and right next to a grocery store, you can't go wrong with this hotel especially if you are here to explore. When you arrive in Cancun take the ADO bus from the airport to the downtown bus station. Some rooms are equipped with kitchenettes,... More

A quiet little haven in a prime spot in Cancun. Minutes walk from buses to anywhere. The staff is simply amazing at this hotel - they felt like family by the time our stay was complete.

So this was our first trip to Mexico and Cancun area. We decided to book this hotel due to its different feel. It is billed as an eco-friendly hotel and off the main tourist drag of Cancun. We stayed there from May 7-9, 2014. We were in room 16. Good points: 1. Nice hotel. Comfortable, good pool, lush vegetation in... More

Hotel is a little oasis of green by a busy intersection which means the noise hardly penetrates the hotel. The reception staff were friendly and it was perfectly located if backpacking and needing to use the bus station to travel onward. Hotel USD exchange rate to Peso prices was very good. The room was clean enough - the kitchenette utensils... More

El Rey of the Caribe might be an overstatement, but this hotel is conveniently located for downtown Cancun. There are 48 or so rooms surrounding a central courtyard filled with vegetation and a small swimming pool. Massages are available and worth the USD 40 or so for an hour. A full hot breakfast is included. The location is a bit... More
