Nice place

Location is very good and clean. Not a lot to do if you are not familiar with the area. Restaurant offers very good food but only open for breakfast and lunch. Staff were very helpful. Would I go back , maybe - price is right.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

It really depends on what you enjoy. We enjoyed staying at the Terracaribe and walking to taco shops, the grocery store and local stores. We were able to take the hotel van to the hotel zone to the beach club.

Nice hotel according to the price

The Hotel it's nice when your just staying to sleep or something similar, although it's not in the touristic part of the city it has a good location, since you can be on a beach in only 10 minutes. It's really quiet and it's really nice that the internet it's free.

Terracaribe was an OK experience

The room was clean enough and the air conditioning worked well. The hotel was just fine for one night before leaving for the airport early. The staff was very nice and allowed us to check in a bit early. We knew ahead of time that the hotel was not in the Zona Hotelera, which is exactly what we wanted. However, Terracaribe is located in a pretty seedy part of Cancun (even our taxi driver told us to not walk near the hotel at night). We would have liked to have been closer to Mercado 28 and that part of downtown, closer to the nearby parks, restaurants, etc. Also, right in front of the hotel they are constructing an overpass so there was a lot of noise (both the construction and the cars honking due to the traffic) until the workers went home. At night it was much quieter, however. The price was certainly great and as I said, it was a fine place to stay. Very nice and professional staff.

Middle of Downtown

On our 1st Trip to Cancun, we stayed at a resort so maybe we might have been a little spoiled. We got the room because of the price and the fact our time share was from Sunday to Sunday but we purchased tickets from Monday to Monday to save on airfare. The Hotel staff was very helping and accommodating to use and have to say it was small but charming for being in downtown Cancun. Hotel pool was cold and the hot tub had no water in it. Food was great priced and very good at the restaurant, even tho they did not speak English. The staff at the front desk was very helpful with the local area and did help with suggestions as to taxi fair etc. Most disappointing was the air conditioner in the room only worked 10 minutes at a time then shut off for 15 minutes.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Market 28 a Flea market with a lot of shops to purchase items to take back such as jewelry and items for gifts. Everything here is purchased in Pa cos and American Express is not the best card to deal with since the locals have to pay more to use it.

Great Staff

All I can say is the staff was very friendly. The room was very small and was not what I was expecting. if you need a place to stay just for the night and no more then it is ok. Long term no way....

Good value

This was good value for the money. The room was basic but clean. The only downside was that it did not seem to be in an area where I would feel comfortable walking at night and there were not too many facilities around.
