Such a beautiful Spanish colonial town and hotel! The hotel is in the heart of this town, across from the plaza and cathedral. The rooms are excellent, clean, comfortable with A/C and TV. The beds are great and yes, the towels are folded like swans. The best thing is the restaurant! Try the traditional Mayan food such as the Cochinita Pibil and others. Make sure you try the local fruit: Pitaya. It is red on the outside, white flesh with black seeds and tastes kind-of like kiwi, the seeds made it fell like it too.
The restaurant has tables under the roof of the patio of this old colonial house.
The swimming pool is small and loses the sun quickly due to the walls or high floors, but is nice and relaxing at dusk, when the bar opens up next to it.
Valladoilid is a small town ad there is little to do there other than visiting the Cenote, cathedral, the Spanish mission building....but take a detour north to the ruins of Ek Balam, and hire a guide (this was the best guide and the most interesting ruins we visited in the yucatan....even better than Chichen).
Don't waste your time visiting Tizimin, we found the locals to be cold and town to be too boring and that's speaking spanish fluently!
We stayed here and then off to mayaland hotel to see Chichen Itzá, that hotel was great also, try this itinerary of you can too!
