If you are looking for an upscale experience or an all-inclusive this isn't your place. If you are looking for an authentic experience I can't think of a better place to stay. Mallorca is very comfortable, clean, and our room got nice and cool quickly. Be sure and check out the rooftop balcony. It's beautiful up there.
Everyone of the staff was polite and helpful. They made us feel comfortable and answered our questions about the local area. We felt at home.
The area was very fun too. They are close to a square where there is something going on every night. On Palm Sunday they had a number of food vendors and we enjoyed trying some of their local specialties such as elote (corn in a cup with mayo, lime & you can add chili). It isn't something I would have tried on my own but one of the local people share a bite of theirs and we were sold.
The people in the area are extremely nice, I felt safe (which is a pretty strong consideration for me), and we got to see the real Cancun. I am so glad we didn't opt to stay in the hotel district.
We ate at a different restaurant every night. The restaurant 100% Natural was very nice. As a vegetarian I didn't have too much trouble finding dinner selections with the exception of one. Surprisingly La Parrilla has the worst vegetarian friendly menu and it was pretty boring for my non-vegetarian sister as well. I'm not sure why so many people suggested it. It was overrated and overpriced. I'd stick to the more localized restaurants as this one was geared more for tourists.
Anyway - you can't go wrong with the Mallorca Hotel (pronounced Mayorca). I would definitely stay there again.
