This lodging has cabanas , gran cabanas , casitas and dorms . I stayed in one of the cabanas for 4 nights . Great location near the center of Tulum within walking distance to the bus station, shopping, and restaurants. Once inside the grounds , a magical garden awaits. A very nice way to need the day after seeing the...

Once you get inside the gate ultimate relaxation begins. The garden is a great place to relax in a hammock; read a book, listen to the birds, and eventually take a nap. Chris and his wife are an awesome couple. Knowledgeable about the area and welcome conversation. If you want a place to stay and not come home to a...

It is a really nice place. The atmosphere is excellent and the owners are really helpful. They helped us in everything they could. Just next to the place is a shop where you can rent bikes, which is quite necessary. Tulum village is, in my opinion, ugly. However, the cenotes and the ruins deserve a trip. I won't spend too...

Set amongst lush trees and a huge courtyard is one of the original hotels in tulum. Excellent , friendly service , helpful staff and a relaxed vibe . The best thing apart from this is the water pressure in the shower and hot water . Believe me a rarity to find in mexico.

We spent 3 nights at the Rancho. It's at the main street and a 5 min walk from the ado busstation. The place looks amazing and has a lot options to relax and hang out. We booked a small cabana but got upgraded to the bigger ones, which was very nice. The only thing we really missed was an A/C,...

My wife and I traveled to Tulum and against the better judgement of my wife I did not book anywhere to stay. I did not realize that the entire town would be booked out for new years.
