For the price we paid we were very disappointed with this hotel. This ended up being the worst hotel during our 12 days in the Yucatan. My partner found a cockroach in the bed while she was sleeping. They said they had wireless internet, but it never worked the entire three nights we stayed there. We tried to get some...

Dear Guest, We regret that your experience in the hotel was disappointing. The hotel is surrounded by lush vegetation and provides an ambiance in which we take much pride. It does require constant and delicate care to control the insect population. We have a strict fumigation routine and we feel terrible that you experienced a problem with a water roach...

We stayed overnight here when visiting Chichen Itza. It is a very charming hotel right in the town square opposite the cathedral. We had a superior room poolside, which was comfortable, clean and had everything needed. As there were wooden shutters to the window that overlooked the pool, it did make the room a tad on the dark side, and...

We are terribly disappointed with this hotel. After reading your reviews, we booked a junior suite for three nights. The suite is comparable to a single room with a king bed in other hotels. There is no seating area, only the bed to sit on. No daily maid service which was expected at the rate we paid. When we complained...

We stayed here for 5 nights and while we had no problem with the hotel, the service was only acceptable at times, there seemed to be little effort to 'go the extra mile'. Hotel was also noisy at nighttime, partially a factor of the central location. Otherwise the rooms were perfect. Service in the restaurant was much better.

Stayed many times, always great and a great value. Hotel recently renovated, re-located check-in to the rear, a big plus! Great colonial atmosphere all around. Restaurant is great, try the local valliadolid sausage, an excellent meal for about $8 bucks US. Only drawback is no early am coffee, or in room coffee.

Decor is great, staff is extra friendly, mostly English speaking. Good rooms - spacious, nice decor again, working A/C, good bathroom. Restaurant is exceptional, with a classy take on traditional Yucatan recipes. Margaritas among the best in Mexico. Hotel is just in the centre of old town, on the main square, across the cathedral. Some nice cafes, ice-cream places around....

First, although Vallalodid is a small town, it is pretty close to Chichen Itza - a major Mayan archeological site in the Yucatan and a truly staggering place -- and is a lovely quaint town in its own right. El Meson del Marques has a great location, right on the Parque Principal, as well as convenient parking behind. A stroll...

Loved this hotel. It's colonial elegance takes you back in time and the location is the best. We had a 5th floor room opening to the pool on one side and the square on the other. Beautiful view of the Church and revolution festivities from the patio. Very good breakfast included. I would highly recommend the Meson del Marques.
