This is just 30 pesos from what is usual if you a hire a taxi...

Stayed for 8 nights and loved everything about the place. The courtyard is a work of art, this tranquil piece of jungle pierced by sunbeams radiates peace and harmony. The hammocks and lounges scattered throughout invite you to just sit and breathe and admire all the stunning plants. The room was large and well-lit, very clean and comfortable and well-appointed....

Thank you for your visit and your comments. The garden is so beautiful because our Mayan gardener has 29 years working with it, since we open the hotel.

Loved the vibe of this little oasis. The whole staff started the day with a spot of tranquil yoga by the pool which must be one of the secrets to ensuring the happy and helpful service we received. Great value for money and genuine character.

Basically the hotel smells like a cesspit as a result of these "fancy" toilets they have installed. Consequently, you wouldn't go near the pool. At 3am a dog was barking so loud for an hour that it woke up the whole hotel. We also found that we could not adjust our aircon so were either sweltering or shivering. Not so...
