Great place to stay after you go to the ruins. 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.

The Delores Alba is an excellent choice if you are looking to save money and want something close to Chichen Itza. If you want more than that, you might want to try elsewhere. For me, it was perfect. 1st off, we took the 2nd class Oriente bus from Cancun and got to the Delores Alba around 3:30 PM. For more... More

This hotel has definitely seen better days but it is in a perfect location to visit the Chichen Itza ruins and the staff are helpful. Much the best way of seeing the ruins is to stay in the hotel and then go early in the morning before the sun is at its zenith and the tour buses arrive. The hotel... More

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

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
