Basic hotel for those on a budget!

This is a super basic hotel for those travelling on a budget and visiting nearby Ek balam. Toast and coffee was included in the price which was great. Secure parking inside the hotel grounds. There is no AC but a ceiling fan which was fine for us (we stayed in March) which was on all night (previous reviews incorrectly stated that the electric switches off at 9:30pm which was not our experience). Shower was decent with hot water, clean bedding. Rooms were a little outdated but for the price it’s a bargain. I did not however rate the dinner we ate. The staff were lovely - very friendly.

5/5 Excellent

A True Gem out of the way!

What a deal. A true Mexico Maya experience. Simple, clean hotel in a tiny Maya Mexican village. Martina and William make the experience delightful. The village is out of the past with friendly locals living in a combination of concrete houses with original palapas blended in. You really get the small village experience. Walk about night or day. The nearby Ruins El Balam are some of the most interesting. More recently renovated starting in 1984. Our guide Juan was on the original crew and really knows the site. Highly recommend him. The hotel was opened by an Italian/Mexican couple. He was a chef and they still use his recipes. The best Italian food I have ever had.

Pros: True Mexican/Maya old time experience. The food!!! Wow!

Cons: Nothing

Location: Ruins, Cenotes, Vallodolid.

Stayed 2 nights in Jan. 2018

Ek Balam + Cenote

There is no internet at all. They only accept cash in Pesos MXN. There is not air conditioning. The complementary breakfast includes only 2 pieces of toasted bread and coffee.
