We had a great time here, just stayed one night but were able to upgrade from tent to Mayan palapa as we were the only people. The room and kitchen were exceptionally clean. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a fridge, the outside shower is hot an its fun showering with no roof! Jorge was really friendly...

Very small and quiet hotel with a maximum of 13 people staying there (we had a group of 5) while we were there. Great place if you want to detox from other tourists. No wifi and only a few small shops close by (limited variety and trade hours) so you have to make sure you bring food with you for...

Very close drive or bus ride to Chichen Itza and walking distance to a beautiful Cenote for swimming. I enjoyed the small town authentic feel. The lodge is tucked away with beautiful landscaping and outdoor shower. Small cabanas or camping. The guy who takes care of the place is kind and helpful. There is a restaurant at the cenote and...

This is a beautiful place to stay. Glamour camping, with the sounds of the crickets all around you at night. Beautiful bathrooms & showers. It is NOT, however, within walking distance to Chichen Itza. It's about a 10-15 min bus ride away.

My boyfriend and I have both traveled a lot in central and South America staying hostels. I studied anthropology in college and one of my professors said that I just had to see the ruins at Ekbalam on the way to Chichen Itza. From Playa Del Carmen we took a bus to Valladolid and then spent time trying to find...

Don't give these people your credit card number. They lie saying they are in Chichen Itza 10 minutes walk from the ruins... It is in another town,20 kilometers away, no taxis, public transportation every 2 1/2 hrs... Swimming pool is a plastic pool. The place was locked u , empty, nobody there, not safe for women traveling alone. Pretty dis...

We stayed two nights in a cabana at the Yucatan Mayan Retreat while visiting Chichen Izta and some cenotes. The place was very relaxing and quiet with decent facilities and friendly service (staff waited up very late for us after a 3-hour delay arriving to the Cancun airport and a much longer than expected bus ride). Good value at 500...

We stayed for one night here. We booked a 4 bed private room with en-suite, with only two of us it still cost the same as we had been paying else where. The room was similar to a good quality hotel, very nicely furnished with large bathroom, couches and towels provided. It was well ventilated and bug screened so no...
