MY mother tought me that "if you can't say anything nice you shouldn't say anything at all." Well I just don't think I can stay quiet. Please do not waste your time. The staff are nice enough but the building is run down, does not have an elevator and the rooms are dark and dingy with thin little matresses on cement slabs. It felt like a jail. The pool was out of commission and the building really run down. We had booked through booking.com and ended up staying only one night. We came late in the evening and the room was crawling with little aunt like bugs and didn't even have a bed side lamp. The next day we couldn't get up soon enough to search out another hotel. We found one even cheaper and in a better location that was miles better than Ikaro Suites.

We were pleased with the size of this room. There are only approximately 15 suites in this hotel. All the rooms we saw had 1 or 2 televisions depending on floor plan. There is a microwave, refer, sink and basic dishes and silverware. There is a king size bed and 2 twin beds along with the kitchen area spread out in 2 large rooms. The bathroom is okay functional with an individual water heater per room. AC cooled sufficiently. The pool and area outside is large but lacks enough lounge chairs and seating areas. It is a short walk to the ADO bus station and Palapas Parque. Good price....would stay again.

My life partner and I have stayed here for two weeks and the location, Hotel, and most importantly, the staff have helped us to enjoy one of our better vacations. Our goal was to escape the cold weather/snow and to have Sun, Fun, and Beaches. Ikaro Hotel Suites exceeded our expectations. The guests we encountered in the Hotel were friendly and helpful. The staff from House Keeping, Maintenance, Front Desk and Management to a person made us feel welcome every day with inspirational smiles and readiness to assist when we needed help. We are very independent and flexible and found the perfect fit at Ikaro. We easily walked the 3 - 5 kilometers from the hotel to the first beach, playa Las Perlas and from there we could walk from beach to beach or return to Kukulkan and walk on the path or take a bus to additional beaches or destinations in the Zona Hotelera. The bus service is excellent .and very, very frquent. At the end of our stay we were on first name basis with our new found friends at Ikaro and so happy that we chose to stay here. The rates were very reasonable and as long as long as these circumstances ascribed above remain operative, we would gladly stay here again.
The TV is not flat screen but the number/variety of channels available and the swival stand for multiple view angles more than compensates for this.
Great value for money

Swimming pool, spacious suites with quiet air conditioners, swimming pool... a bit tricky to find but the place well worths a search!! Would definitely recommend. The only down point is there is no restaurant/ bar, which is disappointing as the area is just full of hotels, not many coffee shops where to have breakfast.

Suites are clean and spacious with separate bedroom, lounge, and kitchen equipped with microwave, small refrigerator and utensils. TV swivels to watch in lounge or bedroom, even has few channels in English. Bedroom king-size bed plus 2 singles in lounge also used as sofas.
Pool in garden area. Morning coffee freshly brewed in lobby. Convenient location for bus, stores, cafes, downtown area or tours. Best of all is hotel's staff, genuinely friendly, helpful and courteous. Have stayed several times and will gladly return.
