Our family with 6 and 9 year old children stayed one night. My first job was to dispatch the really big spider (body the size of a quarter) in the bathroom. Then do in some ants. Its in the jungle so what do you expect - well screens that keep the bugs out and cleaning staff that do the same!...

This hotel seems to suffer from a lack of competition. OK, it's only 45 bucks a night, but we have stayed in similarly priced hotels with much more amiciable service. We were greeted with disdain by the owner after a mix up with the dates. The local staff in the restaurant were great, but the food was very poor, especially...

If you plan to visit the ruins at Chichen Itza, this is a great place to stay. Early in the morning, they will transport you to the ruins, which is a great time to visit. By the time you've explored that marvelous place and are ready to depart, it's starting to get very hot and the tour buses begin to...

When we find this hotel on the internet we were not sure of our choice and we said to ourself... well we only stay there 1 night so... But it was so perfect!!! Close of the maya pyramids, the pools were so great!!! Calm and the food was good. Good price too. And they are offering a very good service...

Needed a room to sleep after the light show at the ruins and before an early morning departure. We chose the Dolores Alba for about $45 for 4 people. It was OK, but not great. Then again, for $45 you can't really expect great. The good: location close to ruins, a fantastic natural limestone pool, and friendly and unassuming guests....

I stayed here 2 nights in February. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The beds may be too firm for some, but I prefer that. The pools and grounds are very well kept and clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpfull. They transported me (the only passenger) to the ruins in the evening for the light and sound show....

This hotel is not fancy, but it met our needs just fine. They were very helpful with information about Chichen Itza. We arrived after 6:00 pm and found out the night show was at 7:00 pm. We ordered food at 6:20, and 10 minutes later we were eating. The food was very enjoyable. We made the show with minutes to...

The Dolores Alba in Chichen Itza is a far cry from its sister hotel in Merida. First, the positive. The outside grounds are lovely. There are two pools (both clean), and one has an interesting limestone formation throughout. There are a couple of hammocks under a palapa and there is also a trampoline. When you are sitting in the dining...

Paid about $40/night for each room. We stayed here one night, visited ruins during the day. The beds were like rocks - old mattresses on cement (!) platforms painted white. Bed linens mismatched and OLD. Very very basic. If it weren't for the beds I'd give it a great review; the restaurant was more than adequate, pool clean, service very...

I never thought I would be the kind of person to write in a bad review, but I cannot let this go. I'm usually very tolerant, but my partner and I had a terrible experience at Dolores Alba. We were only spending one night there to see the Chichen Itza light show and visit the ruins the next day, and...
