I was at this hotel for a month recently and had a great stay. The hotel is small with a pool and has lots of plants and trees which offer some privacy. All the rooms face the pool which is a definite bonus. The staff keep the rooms spotless and the landscaping is kept tidy.
The location is great. You are not more than a few blocks from Walmart, 5th Ave, and the beach. There are dozens of restaurants to choose from. Also you can buy fresh squeezed orange juice just around the corner. i miss this.
I found that the pool was a good meeting place and met some interesting people especially Mike who lives there.
You can get the ADO bus straight from the Cancun airport into town and it is a short walk from the bus station to the hotel.
I hope to return next year and may stay longer.
