We were excited to be within walking distance of Chichen Itza and figured that the fact that it's such a huge destination is why we were paying $500mxn for a budget hotel. The room was nice looking and the pool area looked nice.
Then hmmm the toilet would not flush. Took us all of 20 seconds to figure out that the chain from the handle to the flap was broken. We were on our way out for dinner so we told the guy at the front desk and hoped it would be fixed by the time we got back. ....Back to the hotel at 9:30p he had yet to look at it. He tried it, didn't even look under the hood and proclaimed "it's dead". Brilliant. Then we went to take a shower and not only was there no hot water, there was no water at all.
The next morning we checked out and moved to the hotel next door that although a bit grubbier, only cost $300mxn and both toilet and shower worked. I do have to say that the woman we talked to in the morning (possibly the owner?) was kind enough to refund half of our money which went a long way with us. I'm sure they did not knowingly put us in a room in such disrepair but it certainly did not leave us wanting to recommend this place to anyone.
