This hotel is an oasis in the middle of the ugliest city- my opinion. The service is friendly and fast, the rooms are spacious and clean. I suggest the 2nd floor rooms as the rooms on the main floor have windows on the main street: noisy with tremendous traffic. The garden with swimming pool, fountains and hammocks has lots of...

The price is very fair. The staff is most friendly. The ambience of this hotel is excellent. The best part about the hotel was the bed. The beds at this hotel were very good. I don't know a lot about downtown hotels, but if you want to stay downtown, this place does the trick.

We were charmed as we entered..... "wow!" We both said." This is something else". Not your average inn. Pros: comfortable king bed, good room size with table and two chairs, large size shower with 2 windows. Nice hot shower. Eco-toilette and great water management plans. Super AC. Wifi very strong. Cons: not enough light in rooms, could use more hangars....

This hotel was a charming surprise. Located in the middle of downtown Cancun, it offers a jungle courtyard, making you feel as though you're miles from an urban center. The staff was courteous and helpful. The included breakfast featured many selections, and you could have any or all of them. Great location. The room was clean and adequately comfortable.

The staff was very friendly, breakfast was decent, room was cleaned regularly but we were never provided enough clean towels. The jacuzzi could not be used if it wasn't sunny as they did not use hot water to warm the jacuzzi but the courtyard was very comfortable and quaint. We spent many night there just talking and hanging out in...

Very well, receive the comments, help us to improve. The Jacuzzi has a sisitema of solar heaters, that is why when the day is not sunny the water is not heated enough. To improve this system we have expanded the solar reception area and a larger tank. Thanks Eduardo RH manager

My friends and I shared a room for 5 days at the eco hotel. It was a very nice clean place. Yes it's outdated which is the charm of this place. The courtyard is amazing for any artist who would like to sit and paint. The staff was so friendly and helpful during our stay. The free breakfast was fantastic....

The most striking feature about this hotel was the garden which was a magical place with trees and creepers providing shade and interesting sitting areas. There was a lovely small swimming pool which was great for cooling off in. The included breakfasts were wonderful with a wide variety of Mexican dishes on offer. The staff were very pleasant, especially the...

We drove into Cancun at rush hour. Getting to this hotel was like walking into another world. It is delightful. Our room on the third floor was very large, with a little kitchenette we didn't use this time, lovely furniture, separate commode and shower rooms. A nice gentleman showed us to our room, and carried my bag. I was glad,...

This place is like an oasis. I was only there one night, but I was certainly charmed. Comfy and clean rooms. Lovely breakfast. Friendly staff. I'd recommend it. I'm not sure about how far it is from things you may want to do. Wifi was great.
