Made our reservations here through the hotel we were staying at. Upon entering the restaurant we were immediately greeted and taken to our seats. Rumaldo and Juan Sandoval were are waiters. They were excellent. The food was very good. We had the mango margaritas. They...were huge and very tasty. A live mariachi band played throughout the restaurant for some very good entertainment. Would definitely recommend dining here.More

Stop here withouth knowing what to expect, just want some Mexican food, and the restaurant look very nice, and like a real Hacienda in the middle of all modern constructions and hotels, so we really enjoy, the food was very good, the drinks amazing, huge...margaritas and having live Mariachis was the cherry in the cake.More

Absolutely the best authentic and traditional Mexican cuisine in Cancun... Rumaldo and Juan (our waiters) provided us with an exceptional service and a our Chef Renan personally came to our table to make sure our meals were at our satisfaction. Next day we had the...Sunday Brunch - the best Brunch in Cancun!!! We will be back again soon!More

My husband and I visited Hacienda El Mortero - Specialty Restaurant for dinner. A 5 minute walk outside the Reflect resort. Reservations made the night before (reservation desk opens at 5pm) Desk is in the lobby. 3 timed seatings available. We went at 6pm. You...can choose 3 things from the menu. Appetizer, Entree and Dessert. Unlimited Drinks. My husband and I do not eat dessert so we could get a salad. The food was excellent. Waitstaff constantly filling our alcoholic drinks and water.More

Service still top notch including the mariachi. They even humored me and sang Feliz Navidad for me for my friends bday since they sang Happy Birthday many times. Remember Me and Despacito were also nice. Food was still great but not quite as good as...2 yrs ago. Don’t use so much flour and don’t skimp on the sauces.More

They had a lively band that went around the tables. Food was delicious, portions generous and price lower than other restaurants in hotel zone. Service was friendly but slow.

The menu somewhat limited - but - fairly standard staples you'll find enjoyable but the margs are huge and tasty - the guak pretty usual but fair - I had the fajitas which were good but also ordered pico/guak which are side orders - what...comes with your dish is in a little folded up baked cup so small you can barely get a fork in there - so again ordered sides which came in another difficult to use smaller side which just adds to the price - when your spending good money even in Mexico on huge drinks the meal should be free - in any case it was good once in my two week stay - took several pictures - I really think besides the margaritas - the shrimp and octopus cocktail was pretty good - it was all mixed up with lots of sauce making me think they're covering up something but it was tasty and seemed fresh - other than that - this place is supposedly part of the Krystal Resorts System which is several blocks away but they claim it is in the resort so - if like me - you are a terminally ill and or disabled person you won't want to walk here!More
