Stayed here 5 nights. Cannot beat the price for a resort location. Even though it is not right on the beach it is only a short walk or quick taxi ride away.
The hotel itself is definitely not a luxury hotel but it is nice and clean. The staff was also nice and pleasant.
The free breakfast was OK overall with the fresh fruit being the best part. The eggs were usually not warm enough which probably means they need some additional heaters under the serving tray. Some cream for the coffee would also be nice.
The pool area was also pretty nice but I would suggest that they plant some type of evergreen trees as a buffer between the pool and the traffic on the street behind it to cut down on the noise and to give it a more peaceful setting.
Another thing that was an annoyance was that every time I would walk into the bathroom the door knob on the door would smack me in the back due to some type of door return hinge. It would be better with nothing or one with a little less force.
Overall I would recommend staying here if you would like to save money to spend elsewhere like a trip to Chichen-Izta or elsewhere. I think the going rate is about $85 per night or 15000 reward points which again is an excellent value.
