The restaurant atmosphere is wonderful! The food was good. Eating there was a nice experience. We've stayed at the hotel and found the rooms dark and I am a light oriented person. They changed our room in the newer section which was okay but had a balcony which overlooked a school so it was noisy early. Many of the rooms... More

We had some difficulty getting to the hotel entrance and ended up at the restaurant. Check in took some time and our allocated room was in fact being painted. But the one we were then given was better. So no complaints there. A comfortable bed, a nice terrace looking onto the pool, a bath, but without plug. A fridge would... More

Make sure to get a table on the court yard. Food is yummy and non-expensive. Be ready to meet the groups you just saw at Chi Chen Itza and the cenotes...

We were staying in the hotel and heard good things and restaurant so decided to go on our last night in Valladolid. It was very disappointing! Our food came out in 5 minutes - before our drinks! There is no way you can cook chicken in that time. The food is not fresh! It comes from a buffet hot place... More

Wow-the breakfast here was absolutely delightful and cheap. Coffee, juice and a bread and jam starter we're all included in the small price as well as attentive, excellent service. I would highly recommend a visit..or two or three! Beautiful spot, friendly staff and great food.

Recommended by many as one of the best places to eat, El Meson certainly lived up to its billing despite being very crowded. The open air dining with candelabras and seasonal decorations created a very festive atmosphere. The menu choices are vast. We chose Mexican rather than Yucatecan and the enchiladas and the mole con pollo were memorable. It's wise... More

Situated next to the main square, the restaurant is really easy to find. The food was really good, especially the traditional dishes. Only slight snag was that one of the dishes came cold, but after being notified, the server quickly switched it with a hot one. Since there were many people eating, service was slow, but the food was worth... More

The restaurant is nestled in the heart of the city, right on the main square. It's quiet and nicely decorated. Absolutely great service, hands down. The food on the flip side could've been a bit better, there's room for improvement here; not bad at all, but can be better. Price is reasonable. I would recommend this place to my best... More

Absolutely loved their flavored margaritas especially mango one. The ambiance is very nice with tables around the open courtyard. Service was great, vary attentive and the waiter explained all the choices we asked about. All the dishes from soups and guacamole for appetizers to some specialty chicken and seafood dish for main course were delicious and paired really well with... More
