Great location on the beach and right off the town square. Loved our room with a balcony overlooking the beach with a hammock. The palapa margaritas were great! Loved the white beach chairs you could sit in in the water!

Stayed over the new year. Location is great. You’re right on the beach and the main city center is a couple mins walk away. Bike rental shop around the corner too. Easy check in and out. Friendly hotel front desk staff. My only complaint is the restaurant and bar. The service is

Must be willing to let go, as you will not be connected to the rest of the world. If you are looking for the all inclusive space this will not work, if you are looking to experience culture and great food this is the place for you.

This beachfront hotel was quiet and everything we hoped for. Food at hotel bar was amazing. Staff friendly and full of suggestions. Sits away from busy resorts and short walk to town. Highly recommended.

Is beach volleyball available on or near your property?
not on the property. Perhaps a short walk from the hotel, on the beach. Honestly, I don't remember volleyball nets available.

Hola Did you already hired the transfer service with us? Just to be honest if you flight arrives after 6pm you won´t be able to catch the last ferry at 9:30pm. The best option is to stay that night on cancun and have a pick up early morning on the next day; however you still need to send us and email , please.

"No Lifts so choose ground floor if you have a disability - we were on the 2nd floor the view was stunning,"
"Request a 2nd or 3rd fl room for added privacy."
"Top rooms have best views and quietest . Worth the climb. Rooftop lounge is great with hammocks and hot tub."
"Top floor beach view"
"Balcony King.."
