I did some research on TrioAdvisor before booking through booking.com, which allowed me to pay on arrival and not in advance. The staff was the best part of my experience at El Encuentro!! There was always someone available at the front desk. They helped me with various things during my three day/two night stay. They helped give me directions, plan a trip to the pyramids, and they also recommended various tours. They actually offer various tour packages on-site, but due to my short stay, I didn't have enough time to do a full tour. Despite that, they helped me plan a outing to the pyramids and clearly explained to me how to get there. They were truly incredibly helpful and kind. However, I remembered reading on TripAdvisor or booking.com that the hotel offered a breakfast option for a fee, but this was not mentioned to me. I don't know if it is offered or not. When I arrived, they showed me to my room but did not show me around... My second night there, I arrived back at El Encuentro... More

I read a review here at Travel Advisor about this hotel and it seemed quite all right for a weekend getaway. It seemed like cheap option that was very close to Cuetzalan downtown, so I would just need a place to crash. True, but it turned out to be much better than I expected.
The place is very clean and very well located, just in the heart of downtown Cuetzalan. You have the option to walk half a block to the best restaurant in town (La Terraza, ask for the Acamayas or Camarones enchipotlados), or walk two blocks and go near the Church, with a wide assortment of restaurants, bars and the one and only place to dance.
I arrived at the hotel and found that the managers are quite weird but all the rest was quite good.
You'll spend 70 us dollars TOPS for a 3 double-bed room. 70 dollars per bedroom not per person.
The view from the room was quite nice... plus, what would you be doing indoors in Cuetzalan??? If you travel all the way there, do take the horse ride, go to...
