Thanks to the use of solar energy, a water-recycling system, and composting toilets, this tranquil hotel has little impact on the environment—and its luxuriant garden blocks the heat and noise of downtown. Hammocks hang poolside, and wrought-iron tables and chairs dot the grounds. There's artwork throughout, much of it painted by the owner herself. Standard rooms are small and dated (think lace curtains and floral bedding), but all are clean and have kitchenettes; newer executive rooms are larger and have hardwood floors. Rooms on the second or third floor overlook the pool, while those on the first floor are dedicated to families. Another perk is the tiny spa, where you can get honey massages for a third of what you'd pay in the Zona Hotelera.

Beautiful courtyard, great aromatherapy massage, friendly staff. I wish we had spent more time in Cancun, if only to spend a day or two lounging in a hammock by the pool or indulging in spa treatments. Highly recommended.
