Jose the front reception was extremely helpful. I'm needing housing for two months for a yoga retreat. They moved me to a smaller room, that looked like a terrible addition. Door ways are approximate five feet high. No outlets, and charge me the same for a double room, I decided to move due to the expense. April the so called...

We wanted to stay at Hotel Hul-Ku for four nights because of the nice pictures and good reviews. When we saw the room, which was placed right next to the loud breakfast area. Furthermore, it was disgusting and dirty, especially for the price about $70 (Check out our pictures!). We immediately claimed to change the room. The receptionist said that...

Room was clean, beds firm. Bathroom was a bit small and could use some updating. The water was hot, but there was not a lot of pressure (a common problem in MX). My room had a small kitchenette with fridge and utensils , Basic meals would have been no problem. There is a small pool that is unfortunately shaded most...

First off we only spent 2 nights here but wish it was more. Clean and the pool was great to cool off in. Beds were comfy and shower had great pressure. We liked it for the location and the Price. I think the front desk staff could be a little more friendly but they seemed to have forgot how to...

I really liked this hotel with its central location between Calle 4 and Calle 6 on Avenida 20, as it is only a few blocks from the beach and Avenida Quinta (5th Avenue). The gardens are lush and well maintained providing an oasis atmosphere right in the middle of everything. There is a shaded small pool mainly for dipping and...

We booked this hotel due to it’s good position to ADO bus station and colectivo station. It’s more like a hidden gem, cause once you enter this hotel you have the feeling like spending your holiday in the jungle. Very beautiful and silent during the days, unfortunately during the nights everything turns out into a club. We could hear music...

Dear Guest thank you for your comments , fortunately the club in front of the hotel is closed and we have silence again. We hope to see you soon in Riviera Maya

Spent five nights there. Almost in the centre-ville and walking distance to the beach, the hotel is surprising, with a piece of tropical garden, fountains and a swimming pool in its lobby. The personnel was very friendly. The rooms have a teerrrace or balcony. Clean, daily cared. Some minor technical problems (energy saving lamps not working). Breakfast only continental but...

The Hul ku is a decent basic hotel. Conviently located. The rooms are of adaquate size and reasonably maintained. The small details is where this location is lacking. On a closer look the fans and ceilings have not been dusted for some time as obvious by the dark cobwebs. The linens while fresh and clean have show age, taters and...

We (family with two teenage boys) stayed one night at this hotel. The room was clean and ok. Had a balcony with hammock facing the hotel garden and small pool. The trees and vegetation in the garden are very high so hardly no sun reaches the pool/balcony. Continental breakfast served at the table was ok but a bit too sweet...

We stayed at Hotel Hul-Ku for one night on our way south from Cancún. Check in at around 8pm was no problem and there is secure parking available for guests at the back of the hotel.

“Stay in the back of the hotel, as the Argentinean restaurant in front will keep you awake until 1AM and that was on a weekday. Not the hotel's fault by any means. The rooms in the front are old and outdated. If you want rooms like in their advert pics, ASK for them.”
