This place is a tropical garden/oasis in the midst of the downtown bustle of Cancun.
The hotel is three stories connected by stairs some covered by a thatched roof giving each room a private feel since you can't see many of the other rooms. It definitely is not cookie cutter style with rooms line up in rows. The small pool is well maintained and surrounded by the breakfast area which has a thatched roof with beautiful tropical hardwood floors.
Included is a large mexican breakfast or as they say comida forte which means strong meal. The lady serving is most helpful and cheerful and she taught us a few words in Mayan. Don't forget to tip the server even if the meal is included.
Rooms include cooking and Armando was most helpful getting us extra cooking utensils. Our
room was very clean,quiet and beds were great.
The location of this hotel is great. The bus station, supermarket,parks, restaurants and local buses to places such as the Isla de Las Mujeres port are all very close. The hotel also provides pickup at the airport for $35
This hotel is a great place to start and end your trip in the Yucatan
