    YES you can, also the IFE/INE card works, however passport is more "international" since it more official outside of Mexico. There is a different approach with Car rental since they required an ID with your address. Enjoy!

    "Rooms facing the pool area are probably best"
    Read review
    ""City view" rooms do not face the pool, so they are generally quieter (and also slightly larger)."
