We needed a place to stay one night in order to access the ruins as soon as they opened and thus get ahead of the invading hordes of tourist busses.
The setting in a jungly garden a block inland from the main road an the south end of town was well sign posted and easy to find. We took the slightly more expensive air conditioned room and were glad of it. The room wan very clean and had a shady little balcony with a hammock and small table and chairs that we did not use fearing mosquitos. The room has a series of vented gaps to allow for air circulation, but while this hindered the efficiency go the air conditioner we managed to get the room cool. No road noise but you could hear night critters moving about and at one point the aroma of a skunk strolling by reminded you of the jungle location.
On the downside the pretty pool looked murky and gelatinous - not inviting at all which was a pity as a cool dip after a long hot car ride is always nice.
The front check in counter doubles as a bar in the evenings. The cat's food bowl is on the lower counter and I when returning from dinner at night I was horrified to see the cat come happily running along, hop onto a bar stool, then over the counter to sit and eat out of his bowl right next to the bar's blender.
It tuned mu stomach and we had breakfast elsewhere the next day.
An easy access overnight stop for those passing through. Clean rooms. No road noise.
