Fodor's Review

Owner Valerie Pickles has carved out a lovely little paradise with six bungalows and a wonderful restaurant on the outskirts of Santa Elena. Decorated with her own paintings and topped with palapa roofs, the simply furnished Mayan-style rooms are remarkably comfortable; they don’t have air-conditioning, but powerful fans, tile floors, and domed ceilings help keep them cooler than outside. The gardens with their inviting pool are beautifully maintained. A delicious breakfast of fruit, bread, mango yogurt, and coffee is included in the rate, which is hard to imagine considering how little Valerie charges. For those on their way to the nearby ruins, this is the best place to stop for authentic Yucatecan cuisine.
