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

Dolores Alba is a perfect Hotel when you go to Chichen Itza. Situated 5 minutes in car from Chichen Itza, it is also just in front of a Cenote. The hotel also have swimming pool and a restaurant. The room are confortables, not fancy but perfect for us. All people working there were nice. I would recommend this hotel for... More

This hotel exceeded expectations with its beautiful settings and nice rooms - very charming. 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

Great location, on the road to Chichen. There is a beautiful cenote just accross the street, walkable distance. Nice staff, very good food. There is a good (and reasonably priced) restaurant on the hotel, which means you don't need to go far away for your meals, unless you want to. The only problem were the bugs and a giant spider...

My brother and I visited Chichen Itza in April this year. And we organized everything on our own. Our preferences about the place were to be clean, safe, not expensive and as close as possible to the site. So I came across this place via Trip Advisor and I was happy to select it. I didn`t book it, but had... More

I don't quite understand why you would put a hotel so near a major road without ensuring that the rooms/cabins are insulated more against noise. Passing traffic was very audible. Worse was the bug problem, again, I can't fathom why you would put a hotel in the middle of a jungle and not provide mosquito nets. I bathed in DEET... More

The majority of our vacation was on Isla Mujeres, but since we've always wanted to see Chichen Itza, we flew into Cancun a few days earlier so we would be able to do that without doing a day trip marathon from the island. To that end, we were looking primarily for a place in close proximity to the ruins where... More
