Excellent choice

The beach is really clean. Everybody was nice, they treated us with respected. The room was clean always spotless. Amazing food just loved it keep it up. No self harm which is really good because if there was then some problems. One thing make sure that people don't smoke because it gets into rooms. Thanks for making us feel like home. Keep the work up!

Great family vacation spot

Older hotel on probably the best beach in Cancun. We stayed on the Club Level and these rooms were very nicely renovated, and the breakfast and happy hour were very convenient and a good value. Would reccomend this for a family with small children, but get the Club Level rooms

Perfect family getaway

We had earlier booked Celuisma Maya Caribe, but then checked out of the hotel after the first night, it was terrible. This hotel I should say is one of the best value for its price. My only complaint is that there's no free Internet in the room, but then if you're coming to have fun, why bother ;-)

Best hotel in Cancun!

We loved this beautiful hotel, located on one of the best beaches in Cancun. Sugar soft white sand, calm aqua water, a huge pool, and a beautifully appointed room made for a great stay. The food at the restaurant was delicious at both dinner and breakfast. Loved the huge ocean-side palapas too, which were free for hotel guests. Water is flat and gorgeous. Paradise. Location at bus stop makes cheap travel around town very easy. Be sure to get prices for cab rides agreed upon before leaving hotel property so the hotel can help if needed. Our cab driver assumed we didn't know the exchange rate or Spanish and tried to rip us off. Other than that, a great stay!

NIGHTMARE IN MEXICO!!!

This is a tourist trap, Mexico has finally become the US everything is overpriced, can beer is $5 us dollars, they lour you in with there 5 * rating, then they wouldn't comp my kids meal "hot dog" and french fries, because I ordered it from the bartender off the same menu?? You can find a 3 or 4 * hotel or for that fact a Villa for $95 a night for 2 adults & 2 kids with a kitchen, hit the super markets, you will save a bunch! Inter con president e if I could give less than one star I would! DISAPPOINTED!

best beach ever

the best part of this hotel is the beach,its awesome, I loved it. our room was very clean and neat with modern style,room service was great and staff were very polite ( except the receptionist girl at night shift who was kind of indifferent and annoying) the downside was staircase from hotel to the beach, if you have a kid with stroller and you want to take it to the beach its going to be tough. there is no wheelchair path to the ground level so you have to carry your stroller + baby + all your stuff down and up and its more than 10 steps... beach resturant's food ( snack resturant or sth like this) was great but the big resturant's food was horrible and very pricy.

Nice rooms, poor guest services

I booked an ocean view room and I was given a street view room, I had to argue and spend almost 45 minutes at the reception area to get the room I had booked. The rooms are remodeled but are not properly clean. The service at el Crobeño restaurant is kind of slow. It seems that the employees are still working under the same old culture that this hotel used to have.
