After four days in Playa Del Carmen we decided to spend a few days in Cancun. After driving up and down the strip a few times we stopped at the Calypso. The price was $60 USD per night (breakfast not included) so we decided to check in.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean although very dated with the noisiest and most outdated air conditioning unit I've ever seen.
There are two pools to the rear with sun beds around. This area was almost always deserted whilst we were there, as was the hotel.
To the front is a store and an Internet cafe which charges $10 per hour. Wifi is free in the lobby, but if there are a few people connected it's fairly slow. The trick is to take your device and place it on the reception counter so that you get a strong signal, then it works fine.
If you are Happy with a budget hotel on the lagoon side and in easy reach of central Cancun's clubs, shopping malls etc then Calypso is fine. However, if modern fixtures and fittings, or being on the lovely main beach are important then choose somewhere else.
