Once we landed at the airport, walked out and there were a lot of people hustling. Which is expected. We over paid a shuttle 680 pesos to get to our hotel. Later to find out is only 64 pesos per person for the bus. Everyone kept saying 100 pesos per person for the bus, don't listen to them. Cabs are all negotiable. We got a cab back to the airport for only 200 pesos. Stayed at plaza kokai in downtown Cancun. It was a small room that smelled like mold, lots of trapped moisture.
When we checked in on a Wed afternoon, the front desk man was not very friendly. He did not explain anything to us. Just gave us (4 people) 1 room key. We stayed on the first floor, at the corner. No view. The beds were hard as rock. There were ants and maybe other bugs found in the room. The dump truck was extremely noisy. The walls were paper thin. I can hear everything that went on in the hallway. Came Fri and Sat night the younger teens had parties in the hotel room. They smoked in the hallway, they were loud and obnoxious. We asked them not to smoke by our room door because when we opened the door, the clouds of smike came in. They laighed and went on. We told front desk and it didn't stop the kids. However, we had no rest the evening.
I did not get breakfast included because we walked 3 or 4 blocks to Palapas Park to eat 5 tacos for 25 pesos. The meals there were much more cheaper! The restaurant offered breakfast for 80-200 pesos.
Around the corner of the hotel is a cafe 'Fouquet' they had amazing coffee!!! 1 espresso was 30 pesos.
The location was ok. There is nothing to do in the area. It's just a place to sleep. Would i stay at this hotel again? Most likely not. But looking around downtown area, I'm not sure if there is a better place.
