On our way back to Tulum, we stopped by this cute little find after an adventurous fun day in Punta Allen. The margaritas did not disappoint! We missed the lunch window otherwise we could've tried some food.

Good food but not great. Staff tried very hard to be accommodating but that didn't make up for the small food selection. Drinks were amazing especially the pina colada. Some people say everything is covered in sauce but that is how it is all over that area of Mexico. I still enjoyed the stay and like I said the food... More

We stayed 4 nights at Sol Caribe. What a pleasant surprise! I wasn't sure exactly what we might find so far down towards Punta Allen. We stayed in the beach cabana. Large & private with a big covered porch overlooking the beach. It was the food that people will remember! The restaurant is small, with a menu that changes every... More

The food is excellent and carefully prepared, the bread and pasta are homemade. Stop by for lunch, if you are on a daytrip in the Sian Ka'an bioreserve and have a swim at this perfect beach. The menue varies and this kept us very happy, since we stayed here for 2 weeks (!).

Pleasant folks, good service, beautiful location, but $20/plate for fish tacos! Total tab with chips, guac, drinks was 740 pesos for two. I talked to the manager (who was very polite) about the prices and he explained the logistics of their location, expenses, yada, yada. But we went to Punta Allen (even more remote) for dinner that same day and... More

We did not actually stay the night but had lunch during a break from a bike ride. The scenery is spectacular and the setting comes off as high-end luxury, but the food was horrendously overpriced. We had a simple, light lunch which included fish tacos which were very good, but we had the same type of tacos, just as good... More

We did not stay at the hotel but we did stop in for a fabulous lunch. Good service, great food. The manager is very pleasant and the property is beautiful. Wish we had been spending some time there.
