We visited Hotel Manglares in March of 2012. We had reserved a cabana, but upon arrival, there was no record of our reservation. The cabanas were not habitable, according to the girl in the office. We ended up with an ocean view room (they are all ocean view, I think). It was pretty basic. Clean (ish), but basic. We were told in Merida that we could have gotten a similar place for a lot less money.
The pool was not filled, and the place seemed like it "used to be" great. maybe we were there off season, and there was nothing horribly wrong, but we were expecting more given the price (as compared to prices of other places in Celestun). That said, the hotel is a perfect distance from the restaurants/town. It was quiet, and the people at reception were very friendly.
