We stayed here for our last night in Cancun, and loved the green garden and pool. Our room was a little dated in its plumbing fixtures and bedding, but everything was clean and sparkling. The staff was very helpful, and a great breakfast was included in the price of the room. We would definitely stay here again!

We didn't want to stay in the Hotel Zone in inclusive area, it's more American rather than Mexican. I choose this hotel on tripadvisor and Lonely Planet recommendations.

We stayed here for one night, and were very pleased at how much we got for the price.

In addition, staying...

I stayed here for a week recently and would definitely go back. Although it's a bit of a bus ride from the beaches, restaurants, night life etc. of the hotel/tourist zone, it's nice to have a slightly more authentic experience. The courtyard is lovely and lush, the breakfasts are simple and generous (go for the fruit/granola/yogurt bowls) and the rooms...

Nice hotel, an oasis in the city it is. Good-sized and clean room, green backyard and a fine pool-area. Most of the staff was friendly and service-oriented, but out of our two breakfasts at the hotel, one was an example of really bad service. We sat there for a looong tome before anyone took our order, and after an even...

Maybe it was the fact that I spent the previous 12 hours bussing through Central America, but to me El Rey de Caribe felt more like a sanctuary than a hotel.

The perfect layover spot for us. We have stayed 5 times. Close to bus station which makes the rest of our journey easy. Love the breakfast pavilion, the trees and pool and everything else. Maybe we'll actually stay around for 2 or 3 days the next time before continuing on to Merida.
