On the plus side: Kids enjoyed the pool, nice hammocks to lie in, there's a short path to walk down for a nice nature walk behind the rooms, and there's a shuttle that takes you directly to Chichén in the morning. Down side: Everything else. The rooms are extremely humid so the bed sheets were damp when we arrived, our... More

Good option if you are travelling to see chitzen itza. You can go very early in the morning before the many tourbuses arrive. After that at around 1130 you could go to the ceynote just opposite the hotel. Hotel has friendly staff, good but simple breakfast included. Dinner was so and so. Rooms where clean and good for one night... More

My grandson and I stayed two nights at this hotel. He loved the swimming pool. The rooms were clean and comfortable, lots of windows with curtains to keep out light and sound. It's conveniently located near Chichen Itza and directly across from the cenote. The food was pleasant at the restaurant. The first morning there was an exceptionally large group... More

This place is terrific! Kind of motel-style, not fancy, but clean, well-kept, and very close to the ruins at Chichen Itza. Two pools, a decent restaurant with good margaritas, and AC, very important for gringos not used to the heat in July there. We stayed two nights with a day-long trip to the ruins in between. One thing that bugged... More

We stayed here for one night. Hotel is very close to the ruins and offers decent rooms for a low price. Great for a one night stay so you can visit the ruins early. Breakfast is a bit disappointing but the staff is friendly. Price-quality is well balanced.

Friendly staff. No wifi in the rooms, only at the restaurant. The standard is very similar to a motel. If you don't have a car, your only option is to eat at Dolores Alba. The food is ok, but nothing special. The breakfast is fruit, egg and bread. That is okay, but you can only get coffee and tee and... More

Very close from ruins and cenote Ik-kil. It's next to the road, so depending on the room you may hear traffic. We stayed 4 people in a double room. It was OK for the price, but it didn't look clean (including the bathroom). Breakfast was included. Works for a one-night-stay with low budget

We got our apartmemt next to the road. They calculated 19.x percent exchange rate (Peso/US $), so you bester pay in US $. Unfortunately no WiFi was available in our appartment. Room is clean but no Mosquito Net ist used to shield the bathroom. Looking forward to the breakfast tomorrow.

If you imagine the busy road not being there, you´ll have a nice time. 2 nice pools, hammocks to lie in and air-conditioned rooms. But, the road is still there. Minuses: It´s the main route from Cancun so all the big buses pass by here. So not the greatest place for relaxation. Food was ok, but not great. Rooms: Everything... More

If you want to be close to chichenitza I would say stay in the mayaland as its not much more for one night. The rooms here are dated and I woke up to find a scorpion in my room which was quite scary. The pools online look great but you are basically on the main road so are defiantly not... More
