Hotel Hul-Ku surprised us with how cool the lay out of the property is as well as the cleanliness, features and set up of the rooms were... Walking up to the hotel and seeing locked gates and not the best atmosphere on the street, you don't expect much.. But it truly was an awesome experience... I stayed 2 days and... More

My boyfriend, my daughter and myself stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed the hotel. It had everything we needed (including a little kitchenette which was unexpected), and was only a few blocks walk from everything we wanted to go to (beach, 5th avenue, collectivo pickup). I liked that it was a true Mexican style with lots of "jungle"... More

We are on day 8 of 14 days at Hotel Hulku. We are pleased with our stay. The basic rooms are kept very clean and Julio is a great manager. The location is convenient to Fifth Avenue, the beach, the bus, and lots of restaurants. Definitely would stay again.

Just spent ten days at Hotel Hul-Ku over New Years/BPM Festival, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. The hotel description online is very accurate - clean rooms with A/C and wifi, lush tropical foyer setting, cozy pool with lounge area, and great location. The price for this hotel is very reasonable, and the location was perfect (four blocks from... More

This hotel is a total rip off! The price you have to pay is not low so I would have expected that at least it was like they post it on the pictures. The rooms are poorly equipped, the bedskirt had holes and it did not have a decent closet. This has been a terrible experience, never stay here an... More

We stayed in this hotel for a week. The hotel was only average. I think the hotel has a lot of potential, but they really should spend some time fixing the place up and redecorating it a little. Most of the decorations on the walls were tacky. The bathroom in our room did not have a towel rack for hanging... More

In the first place, we were really enchanted to go in the hotel because of the pool and the nice garden. The rooms are relly clean and nicely decorated. The balconies with hammocs are great ! Unfortunately, we could not enjoy the pool because a group of more than 10 chlidren were playing in it (we were hoping to lay... More

We stayed in this charming hotel for 6 weeks. We've had a really lovely time during our stay there and were very comfortable. The hotel is central, good value for money and has a friendly atmosphere. The gardens and pool area are surrounded by tropical vegetation and constantly reminds you that you really are in the Caribbean. We've particularly liked... More

We stayed here one night and enjoyed it. Really nice interior, friendly staff, and pretty close to a series of restaurants and the second ADO bus terminal. Biggest complaint was the bed....a bit lumpy. But given the price, I was happier there than in the craziness of 5th avenue. The pool, though small, was nice and surrounded by plants. Too... More
