Ranked #151 of 176 Hotels in Cancun
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I spent three nights here after reading a quite a few reviews on tripadvisor so I was prepared in a way for how it might be, and was!

On checking in their server was down so I couldn't pay, this caused confusion the following morning when a different staff member had no idea who I was and whether I had or hadn't paid, which in turn resulted in me getting an unwanted email from bookit.com saying I hadn't turned up at the hotel. Anyway after many emails I got that sorted out and everyone agreed I was ACTUALLY there.
The bar was like what I would expect in a small Mexican pueblo, not near the centre of Cancun, it had hardly anything in it? When I ordered a wine they brought in this large flagon of what looked like home made to me, I did drink a glass and the next day had an upset tummy, but nobody forced me to drink it right??? The usual barman is a smiley chatty character but when he wasn't on the next day a rather tired sullen guy took his place.
The food, well it's true what everyone says it is all much of the sameness, but then I already knew it would be like that. As a vegetarian there was vegetables so I was happy.
Wifi, only worked in the lobby, I took a small room behind reception since it did get wifi in it, it was very basic, that's being kind about it,but the shower worked and i got my wifi, the t.v didn't and the window looked out onto the front car park so not a pretty view. The rooms round the swimming pool looked realy nice and they did have a good view, The beach area was extremely narrow but since it wasn't busy it wasn't a problem to get a lounger. I would recommend this hotel, but only for a few nights as I think after a few days the food, the lack of beach and instant wifi, the randon drinks bar and disorganised staff could easily get to you?

This hotel is not near the centre of canun hotels and is not facing the gulf of mexico open sea as advertized. It is the first one on the left and a long way to the major hotels. The ocean is not great to swim in and has lots of algea. I stayed next door which was even worse. I must say at the time the little hotel is good looking and the pool area is hardly used. Its ok. There are no waves as the hotel is in the shallow part of Cancun bay. If you want white sandy beaches with waves you must go way farther down the road and turn rite to the open ocean where all the better resorts are built. cheers v sedo

Room Tip: all the same, see there photo's

Me and my girlfriend travelled here in September 2012. After our first booking to a better hotel in Cancun was messed up by Thomas Cook, and our deposit lost, we chose here, a it was cheap and looked good enough, so as we didn't have to miss out.

This hotel isn't the best available and there is room for improvement. However, the staff were very friendly, always happy to help and the rooms were extremely well looked after, with cable tv showing all of the Premiership footy.

The bar was brilliant, cocktails upon request, as well as beer, vodka, whiskey, mostly anything you could think of. The restaurant was okay. That is about the best thing I could say about it. It became a bit of a chore to eat there as the food, whilst not terrible, was only average and was exactly the same for lunch and dinner, near enough every night.

Overall, if you are looking for a cheaper hotel, this will be the best you can find. It has everything you could expect and more. However I would suggest eating out a few nights as to not get bored of the menu at the hotel.

On our last night, after 2 lovely weeks traveling around the Mexican Carribean, we needed a place to sleep in Cancun before catching a plane the next morning. Cancun is ridiculously expensive compared to the rest of Riviera Maya, so we expected to overpay, but this place was a nightmare. Immediately on checking in, we were treated suspiciously. Most hotels (especially ones that charge over $100 per night in Mexico) treat their guests graciously. The staff was rude, the rooms were dark and cemented and felt like an old empty apartment. Sure, there was a cheesy kitchenette, but there weren't even cups. The view was nice, but seriously... Mexico is amazing. For $100 per night you can easily find beachfront luxury. Do NOT waste your time, money, or dignity here. Cheesy trash.

Went there for the second time in about a year, the food and service was better this time. The room basiclly the same, Front Desk a bit better to. All in all the services were a notch higher this time. Remember it his a economic hotel.

I struggle with my review because while I really want to give this hotel more stars, the dated age of this property doesn't allow for it. The important part is that the rooms are clean and free from bugs and the breakfast is decent. Apart from that everything else is just a matter of your need for luxury.
POOL/OCEAN
Pros: property right on the water, constant breeze makes the heat MUCH more bearable
Cons: daily tours keep the public dock and beach front area busy from 9-10 every morning. very few shaded areas or umbrellas (get there by 7am and you should be fine)
ROOMS:
Pros: Very clean, no insect, mosquito or bug problems, fridge, incredible views
Cons: dated, kitchenette useless except for the fridge, bed broken, toilet-no flushing pressure, small TV (but really is that why you're there?), hard beds
RESTAURANT/FOOD:
Pros: Breakfast-great variety with an egg/omelette station, friendly waiters, on the dock with great views of the ocean
Cons: Lunch and dinner- very odd foods and not much temperature control (warm salad, cold overcooked meat, etc.) need more variety and an additional restaurant, all-inclusive not worth it (unless you plan on drinking your money's worth)
CUSTOMER SERVICE:
Pros: courteous and friendly, free wi-fi in the lobby (but make sure to wear insect repellent here)
Cons: Staff does not go out of their way to help or offer assistance.

If you are here for over-the-top luxury then go somewhere else. If you are looking for a decent place and can overlook the dated attributes of this property and enjoy the ocean, then this hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: Request an Ocean view room. It is really worth the extra expense. Also, keep in mind, there are no e...
