“late check out”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Perfect for an early start in Chichen Itza, ten minutes walk to the rear much quieter entrance, actually at 8.20 for us no people at the entrance and very few at the site itself. Rooms face out to the gardens, an OK view with the entrance doors to the rooms being off a square of rooms and the restaurant arranged around the quite large pool. Rooms were well kept, clean, not a lot of storage or closet space but then most people will only be here one night. Double bed and a single in each room, slightly strange arrangement with not a lot of space to put a second bed in which could instead be used for a seating area but its OK. Plenty of parking outside, and safe too, in that it is not in a village or with passing traffic. A bonus is the check out time of 1.00 pm. This meant your luggage can stay in your room until after your Chichen Itza visit rather than sit in your car and you have time to freshen up before leaving. The deal for a three course evening meal and breakfast for two people was also good value and good quality at US$50 (600 pesos) .

Villas Arqueologicas Chichen Itza is in a wonderful location (walk to the ruins) and has a nice pool, helpful staff, good restaurant, and clean and comfortable rooms with great decor. What more could you want!

I stayed at the Villas for 5 days in March & found the Villas to be inexpensive, quite, very clean & as close to the ruins as you wanted to be.
Guadeloupe, at the front desk, arranged all my transport & guides as I visited Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Los Grutas & a local cenote for the swim of a lifetime.
If I return, I will stay here again.

We liked the fact that this is the one hotel on the Chichen Itza compound that was not built by using stone from the ruins. We had a family suite, which suited us wonderfully. The bathroom separating the two rooms gave us parents some privacy. Purchased the food plan one day and enjoyed our 4 course meal as the first meal we had in Mexico. It is not a resort, but is a very nice hotel with comfort and style. The iguanas were seen running through the central area, which was a bit hit with our girls. The pool is fine - and important after touring Chichen Itza and coming back hot and ready to cool off. Would definitely stay here again.

I would keep this hotel for myself but that wouldn't be fair for others!
I never give 5 stars to anything, for there are always room for improvement.
We stayed there for 2 nights and loved it.
So quiet, so authentic!

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.
