This was the second time that I stayed here and it was a lot of fun. Valerie the owner was there to great us and just ever so kind and helpful. Our party had 3 of the Mayan huts for our stay all of the rooms were lovely as they were the previous time that I'd been here. The main reason to stay here is to visit Uxmal or other Mayan sites on the Ruta Puuc. This is THE place to stay for a 'Mayan' experience. Surrounded by jungle in these 'huts' is quite an experience on its own BUT one can have the Mayan jungle experience and still sleep in a super comfy bed, with fabulous sheets and a modern bathroom with thick thirsty towels. The breakfast is lovely tropical fruits on the patio. Breakfast was so pleasant that we really had to make an effort to get up from the table to get off to Uxmal (which is only a few minutes away). I could have sat there in tht lovely setting until luchtime, it was so pleasant. As well there is a great pool, very clean as well. Valerie really makes you feel welcome and I will definitely go there again.
