we stayed at hotel gutierez for 6 nights in february 2014. a lot about it is very average - the rooms and service for example, but we really enjoyed our stay there and liked it more and more the longer we stayed.
its right on the beach and the view out of the front room windows is pretty breathtaking on a good day (which is was every day) - you can watch pelicans fishing and the fishing boats coming in. its super chilled and laid back, and has a bit of inexplicable charm to it. it is also really well placed for the toen - the square and the best restaurants along the beach are meters away, and if thats too fay, the restaurant below the hotel (run by a nice swiss guy) is really good and friendly. you can breakfast there and watch the hummingbirds have theirs. really nice
expect a bit of a basic room - but its clean, has hot water and the location is the best in celestun.
PS try the ceviche and pescado frito with garlic at la playita (200m along the beach) -one of the simplest and best meals we had in 7 weeks in mexico.
