I paid about $40/night. Credit cards accepted. Room was very comfortable and pleasant. A/C. Good shower, plenty of hot water. I had in-room wifi in #24...rooms farther out do not get service. Decent restaurant onsite. Walking distance to the caves. Shuttle service in the morning to the ruins but not from the ruins. Get to the ruins as soon as... More

If you want to stay near Chichen Itza (highly advisable if you want to make it to the ruins early in the morning & avoid the crowds) the options are either in Piste (town you drive through to get to the ruins) or in some of the fancy(expensive) B&B style hotels in the surrounding jungle. Dolores Alba is the exception... More

This is a large hotel alongside the main lad very close to. Chichen Itza.The large garden with swimming pool screens it from the road noise. Unfortunately we did not eat here as the dining area looked very attractive and the pool was lit at night giving an attractive ambience.

Just stayed for 1 night in Dolores Alba Chichen, but we liked the place very much. The hotel is along the main road, but because of the big tropical garden, you have the feeling to be in a jungle. Our room was big enough, with 2 double beds and a terrace with seats. Quiet place, very clean. I was a... More

This was one of the cheapest hotels we visited in Mexico, and it met all of our expectations. Modest but clean rooms. We had a car so it was perfect location for visiting Chichen Itza, as it was about a 10min drive. When we were there we saw people waiting by the roadside for a bus for quite a while... More

You get what you pay for here. It's your average run down motel. Beware turning on the fan bugs may crawl out of the hole in the ceiling. The meals are OK. Good Mayan chicken, but other than that the meals were kind of sad, but theres no other restaurants around unless you cab into Piste. I think I was... More

The accommodaton is excellent value for money, and the hotel is situated right opposite a beautiful cenote. The rooms are clean and comfy, the garden is beautiful and so is the pool. Also a very good breakfast. Only cons - the wifi was not working in... More

Hotel is located next to ik kil cenote, for which they also offer discounted tickets (65 pesos) and 3 km from the piramids and temples (for which they offer free shuttle bus service @8am). We paid €32,- which included breakfast (fruit+scrambled eggs+tea/coffee). For that money we stayed in a small bungalow with private bathroom. All very clean! Hotel has a... More
