Much of our friends and families like to do the all-inclusive vacations and rarely leave the resort. We wanted the opposite: a comfortable, affordable hotel with good location to jump off to lots of different activities. Casa Ticul was perfect.
The staff were very helpful, the room was clean, and the price was perfect. Our family spends a lot of time on the south end of 5th ave (low street numbers). We spent nearly our whole week nearer to the north side. What a complete difference. Our side is full of restaurants with very high ratings on trip advisor, lots of small shops, etc. The other side has all the huge stores and the less memorable restaurants. There is no burger king on our side!
Mexican breakfast on the roof was tasty, although a bit inconsistent. A few days they had super tasty yogurt drinks and we really missed the rest of the time where they didn't. Wifi took a bit of doing to get working but once it worked it was great. Front desk staff are there 24/7 and are very eager to help.
The rooms are not huge. I found the feather pillows uncomfortable. The pool is very small, but we are not pool people so that was ok. Basically, it was a great jumping off place and a great place to end up in the evening. So many great restaurants and activities near by.
We would stay here again even if we were not on a budget, but I might splurge and buy a pillow at Mega to be more like home.
