A large natural pool forms in a bend in the Río Nututún, which runs through the grounds of this hotel. The rooms in the low-slung main building are plain but ample. Book a suite and you'll have a terrace overlooking the gardens.

In April 2014, my close Mexican friend and his 9-year-old daughter were electrocuted moments after entering the pool and had to be resuscitated by a group of French Canadians. The owners have refused to acknowledge the incident, even though it was discovered during my friend's hospitalization that a man was reportedly found dead in the same pool just one week earlier. This was a near fatality, and my friend now feels a strong sense of obligation
to do whatever he can to help ensure there is no repeat of the incident - despite the lack of cooperation to-date from local police, authorities, or the hotel staff and owners themselves. So, while the appropriate legal process continues to be explored, please consider this a very serious warning.
