If you need an affordable room inside the hotel zone this is a great option. So I'm sure others have noted that this hotel is inside an old indoor shopping mall. Basically, the retail spaces have been converted into hotel rooms. It is kind of a strange setup, but it is practical and it works. Rooms were nice & clean. Mine even had a mini fridge which was nice. Wifi was also really good. One thing to note, the bathroom in my room (a single) wasn't in a separate little room w/ a door. It had a wall and a curtain. But the toilet is visible. If you're by yourself it's really not a big deal. But if you're sharing with a friend, it could be kinda weird. However, I'm not sure how the bigger room's bathrooms are set up. Location is really good. Walking distance to bars & restaurants, there was even a grocery store down the street. I would stay here again. Last thing - on most travel sites, for some reason they have this hotel located in the wrong place. Its actually located directly across the street from the Dreams Sands Cancun Resort. In the same building (shopping mall) as the Mayafair Design Hotel.
