The hotel has a few good aspects but really lacks a lot that would make it a good hotel. The rooms were spacious and full of antiques including the furniture which ranged from antique to old to almost falling apart, some really getting to the end of their useful life. The room fire was laid and ready to be lit if required. The hotel is right along side of the twice weekly market and bargaining there is essential. We didn't eat in the Mayan Inn, a tip from earlier Trip Advisor reports, but our co-travellers did and found it to be pretty poor. The menu was very limited, the food took an age to come (the five of us were the only guests staying and we weren't eating there) and when the food came it was cold. There is free Wi fi in the bar, get the code from the reception. We found a good place to eat, five minutes walk away, the Don Pascual Resaurant, go left by the small church at the back of the hotel, pass the childens park and it is on the second floor. It is clean, attractively decorated and deals with day trippers to Chichi therefore has an menu in English. It is also cheap and the food is good. The breakfast we had at the Inn was in the same vain as our co-travellers evening meal, limited, slow and cold.

Clark, who patiently started this magnificent collection of Spanish colonial antiques collecting every door, table, chair, bed, chest, trunk, etc. That are today part of the decorations of this magnificent hotel.
