LIked this hotel. Used it twice in December 2018. It's one of those classic concrete wonders from the 1970s. Very basic here, perhaps too basic for many Americans. But if so, that is a shame . . . because it is in an authentic Mexican area of Cancun, very safe, friendly staff, and what I consider to be a great location . . . away from the tourism zoo out on the hotel strip. Walkable to/from the bus station (you do want to print a good map, though, because the roads around here curve lots). Why go to Cancun and just be around other Americans? Why spend $70-90 per night when you can have a much more authentic experience for a fraction of the price? This hotel DOES do something a little strange . . . it takes cash only (Mexican pesos). I booked on a website and, though it appeared that they might charge my credit card, they were honest and did not (I do wish their staff would write "pagado" on the receipt instead of "deposito" though). There's a great Yucatanese outdoor restaurant down the street near the Oxxo. Felt like I was actually in Mexico here. Loved it!
