Hey, the pool is not in the hotel, unfortunately, that pool that you saw must have been in the garden of some residents arround. But definitely not belonging to the hotel.

Why the 'closer to the lobby' comment?
I was asked to respond to this question, but I did not make the comment and do not know why closer to the lobby would be better.

A qué distancia está del ingreso a la zona arqueológica de Calakmul?
A partir de la entrada que está sobre carretera es ua hora y media o dos horas depende de la velocidad que lleven esto es en coche, preparense con agua por que no venden nada llegando a la zona. Buena suerte!

"Superior room"
"The road is quiet ... you will be OK in any of the rooms"
"Ask for 2 NDC floor far room (24-25) as it is further from the street and no rooms above you"
"Rooms on the upper floors appeared more welcoming"
"Far from the entrance to have a quiet room"
US$37 - US$43 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
