Get a private bathroom
Okay for the price, I recommend a private bathroom as the communal ones aren’t great. Tiny showers and no separate male / female so a bit awkward. Our small room was fine and everything we needed. Thanks!

The property was cute. However, I paid more for a bigger, nicer room with private bath, and the shower had no hot water or water pressure. They came to "fix" it, still no hot water and almost no pressure. I took only cold showers under a drip on my visit.

Nice Place
Nice place for the price. It’s a hostile style hotel with the option of private rooms. I booked the King suite which has a lot of room space and nice comfy size bed. Only con I have is the bathroom space. Also would suggest that they add refrigerator and microwave to the King suite. The location is downtown Cancun so you have many restaurants and bars around but it’s a good distance from the hotel zone area. Depending on what your intentions are while visiting this is a great location. If you’re looking for a more tourist vacation I wouldn’t suggest this location but if you prefer a more authentic vacation it’s perfect. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There’s a bar with happy hour and ladies get to drink free 7-8 although now that I think about it the bartender charged me for my drinks. All in all good hotel.
