This year marks the third year in a row I have stayed at Los Itzaes and, if I don't buy something in Playa, next year will be the fourth. I have traveled extensively for over 20 years and I love this hotel. I agree with the person who said it's hard to share these finds because you want to keep it to yourself. Rooms are very spacious, with a small fridge, air conditioning, cable television, etc. For the first time this year, there is a computer set up in the lobby and free for guests to check e-mail as long as you don't monopolize the computer. They say you are limited to 15 minutes, but if nobody is waiting, they seem not to care if you stay on longer. The staff, managed with great competence by Cynthia Sanchez Sosa, is uniformly pleasant, bi-lingual (at least) and will go out of their way to assist you. A stay comes with a pass to the beach, a beach towel for the day, and a lounge chair rental for free. You may also opt for breakfast included, which is very good and prepared and served very well by Juan Jose, who has been there all three years since I have stayed here if memory serves. I also am fond of the location. It is only three blocks from the beach, but one off 5th Ave., which can be noisy. Moreover, there is a great music bar across the street called "Captain Dave's" where Grady and his Fiends (sic...someone crossed out the "r" in the sign) hold forth nightly (picture attached). Overall, this is a hotel that you keep coming back to because you know the alternative is likely to disappoint.
