When you first walk into the hotel, it looks all quaint and 'colonial' (as the name suggests), with the rooms around a nice swimming pool, but cast your eye upwards and there is a fab and quite modern sun terrace on the roof, which I would have missed if I didn't notice the edge of the jacuzzi's poking out over the top! I really enjoyed chilling up there.
The rooms are fine, if a little basic and they really do need to get new towels. The hotel is a few minutes walk to the main town square where there are plenty of restaurants. It's a great spot to use as a base to go see Chichen-Itza (45 minutes drive) and the spectacular cenotes close by. But Valladolid itself is a small and rather boring little town!
Word of warning: the hotel's car-park is a bit of a disaster. We got parked in twice and the last time we needed to leave early and the poor guy on reception couldn't speak a word of English and didn't know who's car was blocking everyone!More
