The hotel/hostel is amazing, clean, modern and with all the necessary amenities to enjoy the stay there. Value for money. Located a few steps from downtown, with restaurants and a supermarket in the same block. Also near the beach, with free bikes included, so you can go riding and enjoying the incredible road to the best beaches, sorrounded by forest.... More

For a hotel still under construction, this place charges like a boutique on the beach. Our room had a ladder from home Depot to reach the top bunk. The front door was missing a handle on the inside to open the sliding door. There was no bathroom lock. There were no drapes on a window. The bunk bed had no... More

The staff in this hotel are very hospitable and respectful. The breakfast was plentiful and fresh. My room was very clean and had a rustic and cozy decor.

I recently stayed at El Punto, and highly recommend it. The location is pretty much perfect, between Tulum town and the beach/Maya ruins. El Punto's decoration is very Caribbean, very original, very artistic. I called El Punto to negotiate price for a private room, and from my first phone call with Federico and then Alejandro following up I felt comfortable.... More
