We were looking for a small, reasonable hotel, and this was a great find. Rooms are comfortable and clean. No problems with air conditioning. Nice pool. Mostly caters to Mexican families, but being gringos was not a problem. Most of the staff spoke English. We ate most meals at the hotel. We ended up having a nice conversation with a... More

It's not a luxury hotel. It puts you in the mind of a boutique hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. You have to leave a $20 deposit for the safe in the room they give you a lock with the key once you make the deposit. When you return the lock and key they give you back your deposit,Straight...

Located on the the lagoon side so there is no beach access but the pool is nice. My first room had no wifi or air conditioning but I arrived early. I asked if I could wait in the restaurant and have someone let me know when the room was ready. After 3 hours they had forgotten. The next room was... More

We stayed in Sotavento 7 nights on our trip to Cancun and would recommend it as they provided both a comfortable stay and great value. It is located in a quiet area in zona hotelera away from noise but a 5-10 minute walk to beach access (ask the staff how to get there) and a short bus ride to anywhere... More

Stayed 4 nights with my husband. Wonderful staff, always willing to assist you, we really appreciated that during our stay. The room was average. AC was a little bit noisy but it wasn’t a big deal for us. The bed was comfortable with a firm mattress (as we requested) – they have different types of mattresses. Room and bathroom was... More

I just can't justify giving them anything less than 5 stars after the service received this past week. The staff here helped me out with just about everything- letting me use their computer to print my vouchers for a tour, calling a bus back to the airport (much cheaper through them, trust me!), giving us advice on things to do...

The hotel is ideally located in the North of Zona Hotelera, and close to the city centre as well. It is equipped with all comforts: big and comfortable rooms and bathrooms, towels and toiletries, a good-sized swimming pool, air conditioning, a nice bar and restaurant, a lovely atmosphere by the marina with palm trees and surrounded by the mangroves.

We paid for 2 hostel beds and we were upgraded to the standard room as our air fan key didn't work. We got a great value for the money and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is basic but breakfast is included and its tasty. The property has a swimming pool (it could be cleaned more often though) and the... More
