Stayed here as a base when we visited Chichen Itza and what a wonderful hotel! The rooms, pool, staff and bar are all fantastic. There is air con and the hotel's restaurant is incredible. Have no idea why there are any bad reviews on here! Great location from the bus stop and the doorstep is out onto the main plaza.... More

Nice stay for 2 nights taking Valladolid as a base to visit chichen itza. Family of 4 with two young children (3,5). Perfect spot to visit around but little children can only visit a few ruins. Actually only one. Kids loved the pool and got excited with the pyramids anyway

Not sure what the guy with "disappointing" as the title is talking about....We are here at exactly the same time frame: we signed a normal amount of paperwork. Every single staff member is smiling and congenial. The individuals at the front desk speak English and are immediately helpful. Our first night around 7pm, there was a woman going door to... More

We always stop in Valladolid either on our way or leaving Merida. This sleepy little town has discovered tourism and all the bad things that come with it. We have stayed here before and have always been satisfied. We paid extra for a better room and had no hot water. When I told the front desk manager of the problem... More

I never gave a5 to a hotel. You may not agree but this was the greatest experience I have ever had. 31 students in our group...we are so thankful for the accommodations and staff. The historic square across the street was filled with motorcycles and riders when we arrived.. kinda intimidating at first but w we ended up having a... More

This month I took a group of 12 students on a study abroad trip to the Yucatán. The bulk of our trip took place in the historic town of Valladolid. Our academic focus was both Mayan geography and Spanish colonial history. Since the methodology behind study abroad trips lies in positive experiences students have in a new culture, picking the...

My husband and I intended to stay in Valladolid for one night on the way to Chitchen Itza and Merida. We fell in love with everything about this hotel and the town and extended an extra day to relax and explore. Traveling with a friend (hubby had to leave early) on the way back to Cancun, I again wanted to... More

A friend and I stayed at this wonderful hotel on a recent trip to the Yucatan. This hotel was a quick walk (3 blocks) from the bus station and one entrance faced the beautiful public square. It was an excellent central spot to walk to local cenotes, restaurants, and down some charming side streets. The hotel was nice and all... More

This is a well located, charming old colonial era hotel in very good condition with a very nice restaurant and pleasant staff. We arrived late in the afternoon in time to rest for a bit, shower and head to the restaurant downstairs. The "cochinita pibil" (local specialty shredded pork tacos) is very good and well presented here. My wife enjoyed... More
