This place really is an oasis in the city as it is located away from the hotel zone in downtown Cancun. The grounds have beautiful towering palms with lush vegetation growing out of every crevice. We saw butterflies, various lizards, and birds during our stay. There was no noise from the city inside, and it was easy to forget where... More

I don't now where they shot the pictures of the place. The AC was terrible, you can't make any changes in the settings. You need to close the door between the bedroom and the kitchen, so when you go to the bathroom, you sweat once you get to the kitchen. The free breakfast was ok. It is also really hard... More

Stepping into this little place off the busy downtown Cancun roads feels like stepping into a different world: up the stairs into the courtyard and you are suddenly transported into a little tropical oasis. We barely saw anyone else there, the layout of the courtyard is such that it feels a little like a maze, where you make your way... More

First visit to Cancun, wasn't sure what to expect, but very pleasantly surprised with the experience. We stayed with a family of four including two teens. We enjoyed super friendly and helpful staff, lush green surroundings, environmentally friendly and comfortable rooms. All well located for independent and slightly adventurous travelers. Great value and would certainly return next time and recommend... More

The hotel itself is beautiful, especially because it is constructed around a tropical garden that includes a small pool. The room I got was damp though. It smelled bad and after only one night everything smelled just as damp as the room. I don't know if all the rooms are like this but if so I would not recommend this... More

This was a fantastic, beautiful, local hotel, very eco-friendly. It was located in the city, which was a great way to experience the local way of life. The location was great!

This hotel was a culture shock for me having just left the all inclusive Moon Palace. But, WOW, it was an amazing place to stay and we are already looking to go back for the long weekend in September. The breakfast was delicious, the staff was delightful and the setting is amazing! I absolutely LOVED it!!!
