“Just fine”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We didn't pick where we were staying, but we had flexibility about where we ate. This location is so remote that there wouldn't reasonably be an alternative. So we joked for days about the cat vomit and prissy queen. Oh, so wrong. The chef totally knew what she was doing, the wait staff was sweet, and David was absolutely charming. Rereading those negative reviews, I'm sure to pay them less mind in future.

On our last trip, we were driving across the peninsula and decided to pull into this hotel to stay a night. It was a very nice location, the grounds were very well kept and the restaurant served great food. My complaints may be petty, but the beds were VERY hard! Also, internet is only available in close proximity to the office. For the cot of these rooms, it would be nice to have internet available in the rooms.

We stayed in the Ecovillage for 3 nights, to be able to explore the Biosphere. (It's a 1.5 - 2 hour drive from Calakmul,)

And we loved the hotel. As said, the rooms are spacious but simple. No airconditioning (but no need for it in the winter) and no tv (which I personally thought was great).

The food in the restaurant was delicious, but it is best to stay with Mexican or Campeche food. The choice of drinks was poor, but the staff was very helpful in telling us where you could get whatever it was we wanted. They supplied an ice-bucket with ice for our wine and had no problems with us taking it to our rooms for an after dinner drink.

The staff of the restaurant really was awesome: helpful, nice and always with a smile even when the restaurant was busy. (And it regularly is, because smaller tour-groups like to stay there as well.

I would go back there in a heartbeat and maybe even stay longer as the biosphere turns out to be much, much larger than Calakmul alone ;-)

Room Tip: The rooms furthest away from reception are the quietest apparently. This may come in handy if you en...

Stayed here for 1 night as a stop-over when coming from the mountains and going to the eastcoast. The rooms are nice, spacious and clean. The restaurant is dull, small and has a lack of atmosphere. A lot of drinks ( fanta, coke) was not availabe and some dishes on the menu could not be made...There is a small pool wich is very nice. The location is convenient to break a long trip, but it you are looking for something with a bit of atmosphere or a Mexican touch, you will be a bit disappointed.

This was my second time I stayed here. The first time I was amazed. However, this time the service was so-so. Staff at the restaurant was very nice, but they forgot to arrange our take away packs (instead of breakfast) so we went to Calakmul starving! The receptionist, a young guy, was acting very weird, silent, not attentive. Not a big deal but he just did not make us feel very welcome.
The resort is nice and has a lot of potential, the central area has a pretty garden, but our room was on the side and our view was disappointing (pictures attached - untidy with empty coke bottles lying around). Rooms are kind of simple, but ok.
Calakmul ruins are about 70 km from here. There is another, closer eco-hotel at the Calakmul gate, probably somewhat nicer, more "natural" but also more expensive and does not offer much more. Chicanna is so far probably the best choice.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The whole property seemed clean and well taken care of. The food in the restaurant was good, but a bit overpriced.
The hotel is situated in the jungle and therefore it is very quiet. It has a good location to visit the ruins of Chicanna, Becan and others.
I can recommend this place as stop-over hotel (1 night) during a Yucatan/Mexico round trip.

This hotel is a real oasis in the jungle, close to magical archeological sites. Calakmul is a must!

We considered this one of the best stops on our tour, which we made in a comfortable car we hired from MEXTROTTER- a most recommendable internet firm)

We stayed for 2 nights and loved the neat and beautifully decorated rooms in separate bungalows, The staff was friendly, food OK. We had our laundry done and could use a PC to get on the internet. Good value for our money!
