We got stuck in the Hotel Batab by our hotel before we were evacuated during Hurricane Emily. I have NO idea how any one could rate this hotel at more than a ONE - possibly employees, etc. padding the rating? My wife and I have had the unfortunate honor of staying at some crummy places, but this is the worst we have ever experienced. It is 30 minutes away from the hotel zone, in a VERY bad part of town (beyond downtown Cancun.) It reminds me of a 1950's motorlodge. Though not dirty, it had a dirty feel to it. The bathroom and shower were truly disgusting. We felt very unsafe in the hotel and in our room and barely slept that night. We got up and left at 4:30AM just to get a taxi to go the airport even though our flight didn't leave until late afternoon. There is simply NO WAY this hotel has a rating at or above the many fine hotels and resorts on the hotel zone. Stay there at your own risk.
