Overall very nice. Clean, attractive and apparently well-run. I was there the night Hurricane Dean hit and the only adverse effect was that the buffet was set up an hour late the next morning! If you like Holiday Inn Express hotels in the States, you’ll probably like this one too. I’d definitely go back.

It's a Holiday Inn Express. It's relatively new (guessing 2005/6). The view is typical of an HIE - parking lot or pool. The infinity pool is pretty to look at & certainly had plenty of chairs available for the hotel size. Instead of a bland continental breakfast there are several hot dishes on the line, yogurt, pastries, fruit, cereals, both... More

We were here last year at this time. Just off of HWY 307, a short walk to the town. Very clean and safe location because it is just off the highway and adjacent to the interior roads (gated) that lead to the Playacar Resorts and Casa's just to the South. Upon check-in we received an upgrade due to my Holiday... More

I booked this hotel for a last minute winter get-away trip after finding low cost flights to Cancun. I was looking for something inexpensive but nice. This hotel lived up to those requirements but it was not as represented on the hotel website. First of all the website said it was 5 blocks to their beach club, but in reality... More

Would definitely stay at this hotel again. The price was definitely agreeable - $60/night. The breakfast was great. The rooms were clean and the pool area was nice. It is a walk from the downtown area, but only 10 minutes. They have a shuttle to take you to 3 spots, but no return shuttles. The only problems I would have... More
