I am truly gobsmacked by some of the reviews I have read. It is clear that what is comfortable and good to a Backpacker in his 20s or 30s is not the same as defined by the more mature professional traveller looking to travel comfortably. I missed out on the backpacking when I was young. Now at the "ensuite" stage of my life when I can and do want to travel to places that don't involve lying on beach for two weeks, I want to do it comfortably if not luxuriously. We arrived at this hotel in the middle of an Intrepid comfort tour through Mexico, Guatamala and Belize. The room we were shown to had wires coming out of the top of the shower (a serious H&S hazzard) and the bathroom stank of mould. After finding a couple of dead cockroaches we decided not to stay and moved to a clean, newly refurbished posada across the road at a lot less than the list price of this hotel.
