Very Central

Fabulous old hotel. IN centre of Cancun so easy to get around. Enjoyed the alternative side of hotel, a bit run down in places but still made me smile. Only served breakfast unfortunately, and no bar that Iwas expecting. Still enjoyed my stay.

Lovely hotel in a good location

Pros: The fact that it's eco-friendly, good breakfast and helpful staff
Cons: Keeping the pool and other areas as free of leaf litter as possible
Location: There is a good market and places to eat close by
We stayed at this hotel just for one night before we flew out the following day, but it would have been nice to have stayed longer. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. The grounds were lovely, with a pool and lots of greenery. It's out of the hotel zone, which we liked.

Great choice for Cancun Centre.

This hotel has lots of character and the rooms are comfortable and its central to cancun central. Breakfast is included and was simple but lovely. The pool is also lovely. On the negatives, we had to pay a 4% charge for credit card payment! There was no mention of this fee when we booked. It's also very close to a roundabout so can be noisy. Ask for a room out the back. We didn't and wish we had. Oh and pack mosquito repellent because it's a little oasis inside the hotel but there are mosquitoes around.
