Lonely Planet review
At the west end of town, about 350m west of the stoplight, is this large hotel. It has 27 small, tiled roms with tiny bathrooms and little sitting areas out front. The six so-called 'cabañas,' near the parking lot, are tiny shacks set too close together and sharing outside bathrooms – a very odd combination with the more modern hotel. With luck they'll just tear them down to make more room around the new pool. There's a good restaurant on premises (open 6am to midnight, mains M$40 to M$90).
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Calakmul and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Xpujil.
