I would like to give you a few things to take into account when you do your reservation. Please make sure this place suits your expectations before reserving a room. 1. Extremely small rooms. Add 4ft to the small bed. If you are a bit tall your feet will be in the air. 2. There is no light. Since they...

The location is breathtaking. The beach is steps away. The hotel grounds are beautifully decorated. But, at night, roaches the size of mice scurry across the floor and walls. We enjoyed daytime here, but nights were too hot as the ocean breeze doesn't quite reach the room. This place has a lot of unrealized potential.

... but as we arrived late, entering was difficult, as the door did not open first and no one heard us. No proper explanation where to find what. By accident we learned in advance that there is no restaurant anymore, would have been nice, to be informed in advance.

Location is great just by the beach, but very far from all the nice restaurants in Tulum (you'd need to go with a taxi) One of our rooms was reasonable but the room named Titan was a very bad experience - so bad that we decided to move from there (and pay for an extra hotel). There was only a...

We have loved our two nights here overlooking the ocean. Very rustic - if you're into that. Also very affordable. They have less rustic accommodations as well at a little more cost. Lovely atmosphere. Beautiful playa. We will make a trip happen in the future just to come back here to this special place.

I absolutely LOVED this hotel. I've been vacationing in Tulum several times a year for the past 7 years and have tried a quite a few hotels. Where to begin. I ended up here on recommendation of a friend after expressing how dissatisfied I was with my hotel at the time. Without hesitation, I called up that day and moved...

Rooms are very different from what is listed online. We don't have a fan and our "private" toilet is being doused in water from the level above us (which, when we told reception was a known issue that we were NOT made wear of) . I had low expectations of this place, but this is beyond what I'd expected. Don't...

We booked and had an email discussion about what time we would arrive from the airport (11pm) and used the transfer company recommended by the hotel. We arrive after a 30 hour transit from the other side of the world. No staff are there to check us in. By the time we exhausted all options no other hotels were open...
