we stayed here for one night, after we had to leave another hotel for having bugs. This was much better for us. It was a decent price, had air conditioning, comfy and clean room with tv, and within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. We would stay here again.

OK, so used almost the same title as another reviewer, because it was apt. I reserved the room and arrived and they did not have my reservation, but luckily had rooms. The prices were posted on the wall, so you can be sure you're getting a fair price. Staff were friendly and set a fresh pot of coffee out for me when I started to pour a cup from the complimentary pot in the lobby that must have been there for awhile. The room was basic, but clean and airy. The air conditioing was VERY cold (we had to turn it down to almost it's lowest setting). There was hot water, and complimentary toiletries each day. (This is not always the case in budget hotels around here). We made reservations for a another night on our return from a long trip around the Yucatan peninsula and this time they had our reservation and it was just as nice again. On a budget, this hotel has all you need and is within walking distance of all the wonderful sights around Chetumal Bay (the clock tower and plaza, the pier, the malecon, restaurants, bars, city life, etc.

If you are going to Chetumal stay at the El Coco on the main strip. Hotel Caribe was a dump. The only good thing about my stay was that I did not see any insects crawling in the room. The El Coco is a top rate hotel and great food at the restaurant near the looby. The sad thing is that it was only $20 more then the dump I stayed at.

I had planned to stay 14 days in this hotel, but already checked out after a few days. I asked for a quiet room, but they put me in the same corner as 6 people who were on an alcohol rehabilitation scheme.....and were completely drunk. Staff failed to keep them quiet in the middle of the night. They then put me in another room, which was very old....and above a garage...the view was such that you had to close the curtains (old paint on the window, view directly in another room).

The problem with this hotel is that it is cheap...hence lots of young people who get drunk. If you can afford, go somewhere else. We went to hotel Noor. Nice hotel....but with poor breakfast.

We booked by phone with Caribe Princess and they requested a booking by email and didn't require a credit card to reserve our room. Clean comfortable rooms with A/C, TV and hot shower. Free internet in the lobby for guests .Complimentary coffee in the morning served in the lobby. Two good restaurants nearby. One a family restaurant wtih excellent breakfast (we didn't try them for dinner). Across the street is an evening open air bar/restuarant called Cactus Grill. We stayed on our first night of our trip and the night prior to our return flight. We would stay again. It was in a very quiet area of town only three blocks from the ocean.

Hotel is at Avenida Alvaro Obregon #168, which is the street you will enter Chetumal on from the west. It is 1 1/2 blocks east of the main street, Avenida Heroes, and it is 3 blocks from Chetumal Bay. We stayed here on 3/25/07 for 459 Pesos including tax. Came through as $41.72 on my credit card. They do accept credit cards with no surcharge. Breakfast was not included. There is free instant coffee in the lobby at all hours. We ate breakfast at 24-hour El Fenicio restaurant a block north on Av. Heroes. Hotel website is all in Spanish. We wrote a Spanish email to reserve room on Saturday - got Spanish email confirmation on Tuesday. We did not need to give a credit card to hold room, but call them if you will arrive after your stated arrival time. No Internet at hotel. We found fast speed Internet for about $1 USD/hour at Web Center, on Av. Efrain Aguilar just west of Av. Heroes (a block north of Los Cocos Hotel). Enclosed parking lot was provided next to our hotel. There was no elevator, and no rooms on the first floor. Hotel was bright and clean. Room had TV, phone, good A/C, but no room safe box. We would stay here again. We are happy to be the first review for this hotel, and would recommend it to all.
