We flew into Cancun and drove immediately to this hotel at Chichen Itza, arriving around dinner time. It is a charming hacienda style hotel with thatched roof bungalows that has its own private entrance to the park that opens at 8 a.m. This was perfect because we beat the crowds and the heat. We stayed in the main hotel, in a room with a balcony looking out on some of the ruins in the park. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was also very pleasant to sit out on the verandah and to wander the grounds in the evening and the next morning. The only downside is that the food is only so-so. We got the buffet dinner which is served in a separate thatched-roof open air building. The setting was great, the food was only so-so. The same with breakfast in the main building which we ate sitting outdoors. Great setting, average food. Also, the hotel advertises that it can make change dollars 24 hours per day. However, they did not have any change either day. This was a problem because the park only accepts pesos, no credit cards or cash, which is what we had.
