    I recently found a mistake fare for Radisson Hotel Hacienda Cancun for any 3 nights between September-December for $28.50 all-in. Here's the link to the hotel:

    http://www.radisson.com/cancun-q-roo-hotel-mx-77500/mexcaha

    It comes up as the "Buy 2, Get 50% off the 3rd nt," but the price is much lower than it should be.

    I'll be in Cancun and am a few nights away from bumping up my CC status and since I can book three rooms per night and still get credit for it, it'll get me there that much faster for less than $90. If you're looking for a cheap place to get away or a mileage run combined with a mattress run, Cancun is looking pretty good these days!

    6 nights = $57
    Can be booked as a continuous reservation.

    Which could certainly be likely. There are often good deals to CUN.

    Same thing I did... figured if something comes up then I'll do it, otherwise maybe cancel them or see if I can give them away. For $28 with tax it's not gonna kill me and it will certainly make a good gift to someone. :)

    Thanks KF, I'm in for 3 nights, probably will go if they honor the rate, lots of cheap flights from Florida.

    The hotel doesn't have good reviews. It's good for racking up stay credits. I would check-in. Stay in the hotel zone in an all inclusive beach hotel and check out when you're leaving cancun. Flights are cheap - but not that cheap that it makes this hotel a good vacation.

    I was thinking about that... the reviews are decent on tripadvisor but it doesn't look like a hotel worth going down to Mexico for, even though it's only $10 a night. :)

    But phantom staying a Radisson doesn't seem like a crazy good plan either though. :)

    The hotel website is reporting that there will be an $11.40 penalty if I don't cancel at least one day prior to arrival. I'm just uncomfortable with that sort of financial risk. ;)

    Nice find.

    I think it's a great hotel to use and explore Cancun or it's neighboring areas. For $8.33 a night, I'd sleep there and head to the hotel zone during the day or head down the coast and spend my money on something more memorable. I agree with the stay credits and that's probably what I'll do since I already have free silver status from a previous CC promotion. To each their own of course, but a great deal on a decent hotel nonetheless.

    I generally thought "Explore Cancun" was slang for get stabbed and lose a kidney.

    If you're not fussy about your hotel, this is the deal for you. If you are more particular, direct your attention here...http://milepoint.com/forums/forums/luxury-hotels.33/

    Offnaway.com sold two nights at the Elysian for about $25 today in one of their wacky auctions. That is a deal.
