Shown our room on arrival. 2nd floor no balcony. Immediately offered an upgrade for £5 per night. What a difference. Patio opened on to lawn in front of lagoon. Although we were told the upgrade had a kitchenette it waxs only a fridge and a sink. Luckily had our own travel kettle and mugs. Bought plastic cutlery, dishes and plates from supermarket. This was the down side.
The upside was a beautiful view, friendly staff and cleaning daily and powerful shower. We often ate breakfast for £2 per head. 2 fried eggs bacon toast,butter,jam,fruit,coffe and juice.
Esperanta, the lady behind the bar in the evening was lovely and often cooked us a tender T bone steak and chips for £6 a head. 2 Iguanas lay by the landing stage daily but scuttled away if you got too close. Saw crocodile in the lagoon and numerous fish. jellyfish and crabs. It was fascinating. Regular bus service anywhere in Cancun for 45p. Beach is sandy and water quite shallow. beaches are about 20 mins walk either way. Beds about £10 per day. Be aware when booking trips. Prices vary. Booked with same company for Chichen Itza and Xcaret through hotel and were told English speaking guide. Chichen Itza was not too bad but Xcaret we were the only English speaking couple and the guide spoke continual Spanish/Mexican for 2 hours. All he told us in English was what time and where to pick up coach. At the end of the day you get what you pay for
