The breakfasts are delicious and included in the price. All set in tranquil relaxing surroundings. Great location with bus station close by and buses every 10 minutes to where the action is.

As I sit by the jungle pool feeling relaxed after my 3 day stay I'm overwhelmed by this hidden gem. The room was clean and comfortable and the added kitchenette was a nice surprise too.

Location, service and breakfast were good. Room was clean and OK, according to the price. However, the hotel is quite old, and it seems it hasn't been renovated recently. Also, hotel photos don't represent reality: rooms are not as good as they appear to be there, hotel looks much older than expected...I wouldn't stay there again. What we liked best:...

Tropical family run small hotel in the center of Cancun. The price was right and free breakfast was made to order. It is basic but the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable.

We have been visiting this hotel since 1999 and we are always welcomed like family by the faithful staff. The eco-friendly operations are the real deal and have been for decades.

A thousand thanks for your very nice comment.

Very nice garden providing a very good climate in a hot city. Rooms are somewhat basic but clean, breakfast was super. The jungle garden and the atmosphere really are surprising to find in Cancun centre.
