My husband & I stayed this summer (the end of July 2008) as well as last year with our teen-age daughter & will keep going back to Medio Mundo for many reasons.
The location is convenient to the town square & it's a short taxi ride to the bus station to take day trips to Uxmal or the beach of Progresso. The staff is quick to offer any assistance in getting around, finding a great place to eat or even shop.
In the morning, you have the choice of having an amazing breakfast of fresh fruits, juices, breads/rolls, cold cuts/cheeses or going out to a local eatery. We always took our breakfast at the hotel around the swimming pool with the ever attentive staff keeping an eye on our needs. Why venture out when everything we wanted was there?
The hotel is beautifully restored, really like a quiet tropical oasis in the "big city". Rooms are large and the hotel ambiance reflects its peaceful history of being "home" to a former convent. You'll find the air conditioning is cool without being noisy & the little "boutique" in the hotel office is where we bought many of our unique gifts.
In fact we contacted Nicole thru email & purchased a Guatamalen blanket we regrettably did not purchase prior to leaving. Nicole was awesome in getting our blanket to us in less than a week!
Love, love, love the kind owners & staff of Medio Mundo!!! We cannot wait to return :)
