I love this place. Arriving at Cancun airport amidst crowds of tourists, I realized exactly how commercial this town can be. We wished to avoid one of those behemoth resorts, which is why we opted to stay here, and we couldn't be more pleased. It's truly a garden oasis. The pool is small but cool and inviting. And there are... More

You are going to get exactly what you expect for your money at this hotel. It offers reasonable service at a reasonable price. The breakfast is palatable and the service is prompt when you ask for it in a polite manner. The location is perfect if you want to use the Bus Terminal to travel outside Cancun. We has some...

This is a little gem of a hotel. Two blocks from the main bus station and downtown, it is an oasis in the city centre. A bright frontage leads through the reception to a little tropical jungle paradise of a central court, with a small pool and Jacuzzi. The rooms are clean and well equipped, some with small kitchens.

Everything about this Eco-Hotel was great; it was comfortable, clean, and the staff were friendly! We enjoyed the grounds and the breakfast was the best on our entire trip to the Yucatan. The gardens are relaxing and tranquil, the rooms are nice and overall, we rate it very very good.

This is a family owned hotel that is a cool oasis in the heart of downtown Cancun not far from the bus station. The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice breakfast in the garden is included in the rate. Room and bath were nice and clean. The pool is small but in a charming garden setting. I had a... More

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.

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.
