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

I stayed here for 3 nights for a quick weekend getaway after working in Mexico for the week. I got in late and the iron gates were locked, so the night clerk came over and let me in. Nice open air lobby with a fountain. I checked-in and had to carry my suitcase up the polished wooden stairs to the... More

Pros: - Easy 20 min to airport. Hotel can arrange a taxi transfer to/from airport. Approx $20 USD to airport (more for pickup...but still cheaper than airport taxis). - Also easy to hail a taxi in front of the hotel for a 10 min ride to Puerto Juarez (for the ferry to Isla Mujeres). Expect to pay around 40-50 pesos... More

Charming and very clean lodgings, perfect if you'd like see something of El Centro, the Mexican part of Cancun away from the generic Hotel Zone. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are modest but clean and quiet and organized around a lush courtyard with a nice little pool. The breakfast was exceptionally good for a hotel at... More

A nice ambient, nice prices and good service hotel, we felt like at home; Even thought it's located in a busy street, street noise is not a problem, you feel like you're in a forest environment, it does have a clean pool and the hotel's staff is always on a good mood, even if you come back to the hotel...

This hotel does not look like the pictures. But, if you want to sleep well on clean sheets and have a great breakfast included in the morning then you will be happy. The room had a damp smell, a non-working AC and the toilet seemed to leak water on the bathroom floor. It looked a little run down in the... More
