Auch wenn wir nur kurz dort waren hat uns der Aufenthalt gut gefallen. Es ist alles wie beschrieben und sauber! Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir bekamen viele Informationen wie wir wo hinkommen, essen in der Nähe und generelle Informationen die gut waren zu wissen! Durch die gute Anbindung und die Nähe zur ADO Station wird das weiterreisen sehr erleichtert! Wir können cancun guesthouse weiterempfehlen.
This place was very nice- good to get away from all the hotels, but still have all the amenities. It was clean and spacious. Short walk to restaurants, money exchange, and super markets.
Oscar was extremely helpful with directions, he gave us tips on what to do from the moment we got to the airport to the moment we left. Thanks to him we walked around and ate food in local spots, didn't spend as much in transportation, and generally had a more "authentic" stay (if that means anything)
The place is really close to the bus station / local bus stops, so getting to/from there was a breeze.
The neighborhood is not the best, like any city downtown you may see anywhere else, getting to the house is not exactly pretty, however the house was clean and secure. The room was clean and tidy, nothing less than what we expected. Communication with Oscar was easy and prompt.
In summary, I believe you get good value for your money if you do stay at this place, I personally would stay here again :)
Though this ultimately ended as an unfortunately poor situation due to a bed bug-laced start to our vacation, Oscar & Roy's home was beautiful, easily-accessible by public transport from the airport, and walking distance from some good restaurants that are away from the touristy Hotel Zone. Upon arrival, everything seemed clean, spacious, and fulfilling of any/all basic needs. The hosts were very nice upon our late arrival.
Despite such a nice home and accommodating hosts, our experience went in a sour direction when we found bed bugs. We found a few under the pillows and then traced down the tell-tale sign of bed bugs: little blood spatters across the sheets. I had a pretty severe allergic reaction, the bites swelling with a fever that blew up skin from my fingers to my toes and didn't go down until a few days into our trip. My friend had several hundreds of bites (literally, hundreds) dotting her arms and legs, and found a living bed bug nestled into the inside of her shirt when we woke up. Both of our reactions were textbook to the critters. Roy came into the room and admitted that this was the 3rd time they encountered a problem with bed bugs, that they had purchased an all new bed but had only sprayed the foam top mattress before using it again. Prescription medications were needed on a constant basis to manage the bites for the first half of our trip (our hosts were nice enough to go out and retrieve my first round of medication, though I needed to double it up before we set off for Cuba) , clothes were tossed into boiling water, some sealed, some thrown away, which was not the most ideal way to start our trip. We did discuss and agree to a refund while we were there, as they saw how badly we were bitten, though in a later message after the fact, it was suggested that we had been bitten by bugs prior to arriving in Cancun and that they had had no other problems with their other guests (this doesn't seem to be true based on reading another recent review).
In any case my friend has hundreds of tiny red scars on her arms still, and we're throwing down a bit of an extra expense to be 100% sure we are completely clear of any bugs/eggs our belongings may have come in contact with in the room.
Though the room was very nice and nature sometimes overpowers human control, I'm definitely disheartened by the fact that our host admitted this had already been an ongoing problem and hadn't made every single possible effort to make sure it was gone.
Roy and Oscar were very friendly and good hosts-- it's obvious the care they put into their guest house. The room was extremely clean and comfortable with several amenities provided. Roy communicated with us well and accommodated out early arrivals. Unfortunately, however, there may be bedbugs in the room we stayed in-- both my boyfriend and I were covered in bites after staying here.
