Cancun-- the modern Cancun-- has moon in common with Las Vegas or Disneyland than it does authentic Mexico. That's not a bad thing if you're a fugitive from cold weather or a withering relationship, but mega-hotels now dominate a coastline that was once populated by mangrove swamps and gentle people. Today, the typical Cancun hotel is just another global all-inclusive,...

A well located hotel with a difference in downtown Cancun. Avoid the resort saturated coast and stay in the city centre if you want to see a bit more of the Mexican way instead of the generic international resort way. An ecologically and socially conscious option that doesn't detract from the fact that it is a well priced and cozy...

We stayed at this lovely small hotel twice during October 12, and it was very conveniently located in central Cancun, near shops and the bus station. The rooms were spacious with air and fan, breakfast was nice, and the staff were extremely helpful. It was really nice being small and is an oasis in the city.

We stayed here for our last night in Cancun, and loved the green garden and pool. Our room was a little dated in its plumbing fixtures and bedding, but everything was clean and sparkling. The staff was very helpful, and a great breakfast was included in the price of the room. We would definitely stay here again!
