The woman at the front desk did not seem to happy to be there, was not very helpful. The guys were quite helpful and spoke better English. There is no refrigerator in the room, the TV had one channel and it was fuzzy. None of the buttons on the tv worked therefore we could not turn it off or change... More

This place is hidden and buried far past the resort hotels and all-inclusives along the coast that Cancun is known for; but if you are looking for a budget-friendly place tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of the commercial strip then this place is for you. It's peaceful, homey, with nice clean rooms and linens and comfortable grounds... More

If you dont mind wasting money and so, so service this is the place for you. The A/C is only in operation while in the room. You must insert a key to get the unit running and must remove the key when you leave. So after you return from the sweltering heat you must wait a while for the A/C... More

We were looking for a place to stay as we missed our flight. We found a deal online for this hotel and took it as there was not much time to evaluate. Good things: It is in the hotel zone so it has easy access to other attractions. Its low cost. Its on the lagoon. Bad things: Since its on... More

At first glance, the place looks like a whole in the wall, but the staff is very nice and are quick to cater to your needs. This is not a 5 star hotel... it doesn't have an exercise room, glorious views of the ocean, or expansive rooms with armoires and 40" flat screens, big parking areas, free shuttle to and... More

Compared to the rest of the hotels in Cancun this one is a bargain! Good location, nice gardens, free breakfast, pool and restaurant onsite. The only downside is it's not on a beach. If you're looking for a budget option this is definitely the way to go as there are no backpackers/hostels in the hotel zone.

The location is not bad, the rooms are adequate however, the only area with AC is your room! The restaurant was poorly staffed. The breakfast was not bad but I would rather eat outside. The pool was dirty and needs some work, the pool area was messy and they need new chairs and tables as well as towels. The front... More

This hotel is by far the worst I've ever stayed at. As soon as we came in we were greeted by two gloomy faces who were to occupied with handling some papers and one at a computer to even look us in the eye for 5 minutes. There were no other guests at the sets taking their attention, just other... More

The hotel is far away from the beaches, the nightlife, downtown Cancun (you have to take a bus). The swimming pool was dirty, and there was no sun around it, the only way to be at the sun was to go on the grass. No shower available in the swimming pool area, we had to go to the room. The... More
