Don't come here expecting frills, pampering, or all the latest conveniences, but if you just need a nice, clean comfortable place to spend a night while visiting Chichen Itza, this is the place. It's an easy 5-minute stroll to the parks rear entrance.
We arrived about 4pm on the vernal equinox and the crowds in town were crazy so we just decided to eat here. Not a bad choice....nothing fancy but very tasty, inexpensive dinner. We also had the breakfast buffet and were very pleased with everything.
In the evening we sat down by the pool and watched the moon over a glass of wine.
And did I mention what a bargain it was!? With taxes the total was $79!
You don't get a TV. There's no ice machine. But there WAS A/C and the beds were very comfortable.
Hard to beat for that price.

Hotel, along with the entire Chichen itza experience, was awesome - ever since check-in, arriving at night (little touches - cool towels, refreshing welcome drinks); cute pool; rooms were tiny, but neat; we were very impressed with meals: bought dinner/breakfast package - was wonderful, high quality option of "comida tipica". After touring the ruins in the morning, came back for check out and stayed for lunch... Food and service was amazing. It is not typical for us to eat in the same place, but everybody in our group agreed, that it is an excellent choice, before taking off. Wifi worked ok in the inner court/ restaurant area. Overall, there was a feeling, that the hotel staff truly work as a team, and care for your needs. Great, cozy experience.
Lady at the front desk informed us about Chichen itza site hours and also regarding tours/guides (we debated about having a tour guide, but finally reserved it through the hotel - same price as you would get at the gate). George, the tour guide, was awesome, very knowledgeable - provided fun facts not only related to Mayan history, but an overview and comparison with other world civilizations. He picked us up at the hotel in the morning, and after 10 min walk we entered Chichen itza through the side entrance - arriving at the opening time - no crowds yet; as we were navigating towards the exit, after the tour, we saw the big groups were starting to arrive. Was an amazing experience afterall - highly recommended. We visited Coba and Tulum after that, but Chichen Itza with it's architectural wonders and acoustic tricks was most amazing... Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Allow sufficient time for breakfast :) We slept in a bit, and had to rush through breakfast a bit, since had a tour guide reservation...

We loved our stay here: refreshing swim in the clean pool, delicious breakfast buffet, attractive & well-designed mini-suite.
There's nothing not to like about this hotel!
And...you'll avoid the huge crowds at the main entrance to the archeological site.

Villas Arqueologicas Chichen Itza is a former Club Med, which is reflected in its design - rooms are set up for sharing among unrelated adults. They are somewhat basic but perfectly adequate. The pool is fairly nice and large, though chilly even for this New Englander. Everything worked and staff were attentive.

There was a "meal deal" that we initially passed up then thought better of. For an impressively low price, it included 2 meals. We opted for supper (which meant we didn't need to drive into Piste) and a buffet breakfast. Menu options were good, though I'd pass on the fruit salad - while fresh, it was eerily reminiscent of canned. The buffet breakfast was especially good with fantastic fresh juices.

The walk to the "back" entrance to Chichen Itza was a just a few minutes, and we didn't have to deal with main entrance crowds.

Free parking, peace and quiet, and decent pricing. I've stayed there before and I'd do so again. If I can get a good deal at the Mayaland, that's preferable, but VACI is always a good deal.

Room Tip: As far as I can tell, all rooms are exactly identical and surround the central pool with views of the woods outside.

Location was perfect - a five minute walk to the east entrance of Chichen Itza. We had a little trouble finding the hotel as there were signs for it all along 180 but it wasn't clear if the hotel was on the street of the sign "hotel zone" or "Chichen Itza". It turned out to be on the "hotel zone" dirt road. If you get there after dark, it can be challenging if you don't know where you are going. The hotel room was on the small side and the beds are short for tall people. No TV for one night didn't kill us. Wifi was painfully slow and there's no phone in the room. They offer a breakfast-lunch or breakfast-dinner combo deal but since we are not big eaters, it's overpriced for us. Piste is 5 minutes drive away with loads of restaurants.

We went into Chichen Itza at about 8:30am and it wasn't crowded at all. Since the hotel check out time is 1pm, we were able to leisurely walking through the sites and go back and pack our things.
