Good quality hotel in the thick of the Cancun atmosphere, yet away from the hectic main boulevard. There are some lovely tropical gardens surrounding the pool and contains some lovely shaded areas. The staff are helpful and polite and the rooms are clean and adequate. Good value.

If you like travelling affordably and getting an authentic local experience, this is a great place. It's busy with a lot of locals and travelers looking for a quiet home base in the busyness of Cancun. Tricky review with great highlights and a couple of disclaimers. Rooms and beds are comfortable with strong AC (all or nothing in our room... More

I stayed in this hotel for a SCUBA diving trip. It has it own pier at the lagoon so any boat can pick you up. The price is really good... not the bes hotel in this wolrd, but it was worth. The breakfast is simple, but not bad. Is not really near from the beach, but if you are planning... More

Kind of difficult to find at first. Hotel is tucked back off the main hotel zone road at about KM4.5. Desk staff is slow to warm up to, but when they do, they try to make things good for you. Never had a problem the 2 times I have been here. Workers spend all day keeping the rooms and the... More

I wanted cheap clean safe on the water and the hotel is all those things. The rooms are like stucco villas hidden in a lush jungle. The Mexican food on the restaurant menu is awesome and very affordable. The restaurant sits on the lagoon and the breeze off the water in late afternoon is again, awesome. The club sandwich and...

I stayed there for two nights, and my overall feeling when leaving was that it was okay. It wasn't amazing, but I didn't expect that either considering the price. It was clean and the staff was nice. I had no reception what so ever in my hotel room, not even Wi-Fi but after almost 3 months in Mexico I'm pretty... More

We booked four rooms for one night at the Sotavento Hotel & Yacht Club because of problems with our AirB&B booking. It is located in the Hotel zone but on the lagoon side. Parking was easy, the staff were pleasant and Wifi was good in the hotel lobby. Breakfast was OK. The big problem was the mosquitoes. Everyone was badly... More

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and I'd stay again. It's a basic, no frills type of place but perfect for what I was looking for. -It was QUIET, not a party atmosphere whatsoever. -Wifi in the lobby and restaurant. -Breakfast included in the price I paid was toast, cereal, juice, coffee, tea, and then sometimes fruit/sometimes eggs and...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Best thing I can say is that the ac was cold...very cold...too cold! The room felt like a cave. Stains on blankets. Holes in sheets. No one friendly at front desk. Couldn't wait to leave.

We arrived to this hotel after 15 days spent in Mexico and belize and this one was the worst. Probably it depends in which room you are. Our room was in basement and thanks to high humidity, there was stink and mold. Another thing is that there is no wifi. However the staff was very nice and friendly.
