Very relaxing hotel with leafy courtyard and small swimming pool including a few hammocks provided between the palm trees. Clean comfortable air conditioned bedrooms, friendly and helpful service staff who tried patiently to understand my blend of English and very poor Spanish. We stayed here for only 1 night on arrival in Cancun before moving onto Isla Majeures, and would certainly return for a place to stay in Cancun city.

We only stayed one night here before we went on to Isla Mueres for a week. It is a quiet place tucked away with large beautiful trees and cozy outside areas to relax in. The rooms are not fancy, but spacious and clean. Our room had a kitchen but we did not use it. A free breakfast is included and was in an outdoor restaurant with yummy food. Staff were friendly and helpful. We paid a little extra to have them transport us from the airport to the hotel, and the next day they drove us to the ferry dock. If you are looking for a party place, this is not for you. If you want a peaceful, quiet place at a great cost, I highly recommend it.

Lovely place, quiet and super friendly. We enjoyed the garden and the small beautiful pool. The best place if you are looking for something special, something away from the crowd and the mainstream. If you want to know about real life in Cancun, just strall along the surrounding roads and get a real mexican meal in the nearby supermarket.

Room Tip: We had a room to the street, but it was still quet enough. There are more rooms towards the little p...

This hotel was such a find. I truly did not know what to expect until I arrived. The people are wonderful, the environment is relaxing and the morning breakfast was delicious. If you are looking for a large all-inclusive don't get to see the local area stay at the resort type of place, this is not the hotel for you, but if you want a hotel with a personal touch that allows you to fully experience the local atmosphere, this is the place.

The room I was in had a full kitchen and there was a grocery store about 3 blocks away where you could fill up on food and drink to make in your room and sit out on the patio and eat, or local restaurants which where really close.

As a tip to someone traveling who wants to go on an excursion, I do not know if they offer anything with the hotel, but if you walk to the bus station, across from it is an office that sells excursions and they were half the price of what the big resorts where charging.

Great place!

My family and I (11 of us) stayed several days last January before traveling on to Tulum. We all loved the ambiance, casual and friendly with beautiful outdoor areas. The breakfasts were absolutely yummy. I looked forward every morning to those luscious fruit drinks! The kids were happy in the pool and playing games in the blue hammocks. Our three year old loved the little playhouse. One night a bunch of us walked up to the top of the hotel to survey the city. Such a lovely walk we had and a beautiful view. The staff were all so nice and helpful. We loved being close to downtown and we took several walks to the market, a good restaurant nearby and into the neighborhoods. Taxis were easy to catch there. I would most definitely stay at the el Rey del Caribe if ever again I am lucky enough to go to Cancun! Muchas gracias for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Our rooms were on the ground level away from the pool and we enjoyed them very much. The views from...

All round satisfaction. Very enjoyable stay. For people who wish to get away from the expensive and typical holiday resort in the hotel zone, this is the best.
Walking distance to Ado bust terminal.
And also walking distance to shops, money exchange, supermarkets ...etc.

We appreciate your comments they are very useful, we are glad you enjoy your stay with us. The echo techniques in heating the water with the sun separating garbage and composting the organics of all the hotel gave us a recognition in the evaluation that RainForest did for us. Thanks a lot for your visit.
