My daughter and I planned a week of sun and kite surfing at Ahau Tulum. Unfortunately, the sun and surf got interrupted by Earl. The hotel staff did a excellent job accommodating and we ended up having a blast!!

Staff were super friendly and extremely helpful. Food was superb at both the restaurant and the vegan shack. Words won't begin to describe the beauty of the rooms, grounds, and the beach. Wi-Fi was spotty but bearable. Would definitely visit again.

I think Ahau is located in the best part of the Tulum beach. Our beautiful ocean-view room (Junior Suite A) exceeded all expectations. Fresh breads and coffee were left on our patio each morning, and we were on the ocean level so we were just about 20 steps to the beach. The louvered windows allowed for us to open up...

We were part of a wedding at Ahau Tulum, and for four days lived in our own perfect world. The setting, obviously, is super. The rooms [we had an upstairs ocean view] were more than comfortable. Food and drink, both on site and nearby, all memorable. Best was the staff, genuinely friendly and responsive.

The staff is great and the environment is perfect. Will certainly be back. Best trip to the beach I've ever taken, and is a short walk from some really great restaurants. Views from top of the water tower are stunning.
