Area description
When coming from the Cancun airport, you will drive southbound. After 21 km you will start to approach Puerto Morelos, be alert as the road goes from two to four lanes going south. Stay in the central lanes and you will go over a bridge that enables you to drive right past Puerto Morelos as opposed to driving through all of its traffic lights, speed bumps, etc. Soon you will see the entrance to the Grand Velas Resort and nest you will see the Princess Hotel begins. Take a left hand turn at the Princess Hotel entrance. You will now be on a nicely paved road. Go straight ahead for one kilometer, (less than a mile). Dont speed up as there are two sets of speed bumps. Ahead you will see a tall, gray wall that marks the limits of a property. Turn right here as if going to the Princess Hotel. Keep driving and go past the Princess Hotel. You may want to slow down as the paved road soon gives way to a dirt road. Go all the way to the end of this road and you will come to a fence and a si

Rustic hotel, Unreliable internet

Basic hotel with limited amenities. Rooms are rustic, and would benefit from thorough cleaning and renovation. Limited television channels, no remote control in our room, and no safe. Food was OK. If you need to be connected to the internet during your stay, this is not a place to stay. They do have computers to use, but the wireless network is dismal, no matter where you are located in the hotel. We were barely able to get connected for a few minutes each day. The beach is nice and not too crowded like the large resorts. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to walk from the hotel to town following the beach. Would not stay there again mostly because of the lack of reliable internet, and also because it is too far from town.
