Safes in standard CAT rooms

Can anybody help us with some info? What is the daily charge for the standard room safe at the CAT and is there a refundable deposit payable. Are all things at the hotel now payable in pesos?

Thank you

Safe is $3.00US extra per night. We've never paid a deposit; just pay total when we check out. We were there last December and paid with US dollars.

Hi

We returned from the cat last month and the safes are still 3 US dollars a day... no deposit... and you pay at the end of your stay. Items in the hotel gift shops were priced in both pesos and dollars.... the stalls they have out every other night were giving us prices in US dollars, but would happily convert to pesos for us... but never pay what they ask, always bartar!!!! lol

Hope this helps

Thanks for all the replies and to Warren and Deb we are going on the 20th December staying for christmas and New Year, I can't wait and will look forward to any info you may have on your return especially about the currency now they are cutting down on the use of dollars e.g. the departure tax, how much in pesos or pounds.

Thanks again

We just got back and got a safety deposit box behind the desk for free with a 100 peso deposit which we got got back when we checked out at the yucatan. We were told in no uncertan terms when we checked in that the Cat was a US dollar only hotel. We had to go into PDC to a bank for Pesos to tip with.

Hi we go on Monday,

Should we take pesos or dollars, what did they accept in PDC?
