Very basic (and clean) room with good wi-fi and good clean pool (its deep but there is a shallow section). Ernesto and the other staff were super nice. One thing that I noticed that I liked was that all of their linens were dried on clothes lines (love that smell!). The new restaurant next door was very beautiful with amazing... More

This is a decent hotel similar to Motel 6 or Super 8 in the states. The room is spacious and clean. The staff is also friendly. We ran out of hot water after 10 minutes of shower. The address shows Tulum but it’s really far from it. It is located in a small town about 30 minutes from Coba and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in late June 2014. You cannot beat the price. It's an older motel run by a couple that lives on site.
