My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights at this beautiful apartment right off the main strip in Tulum. It was hands down one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in. Great for people who don't want the all-inclusive treatment and just want to get out and explore the amazing scenery, but don't want to rough it at a hostel.
Ku Tulum delivers exactly what it advertises. The location is perfect for visitors who want to be in the heart of Tulum. Great restaurants like la Querida is just around the corner, so are quaint little bars and coffee shops.
The apartment was clean, safe and secure. William who met us on arrival was gracious and professional. He is reachable at all times via Whatsapp, so you might want to put it on your phone. The wifi at the apartment was 100% and almost all restaurants and bars have free wifi.
The Tulum ruins are about 3km from the apartment. Bikes are available for rent from the apartment. The ocean is also a few Km's away best reached by cab or bike. Easy Chango is the nearest dive shop, literally just down the street. I went cenote diving with them and they were great.
We used Tulum Transfers from Cancun airport, just arrange when booking to be dropped at the apartment as it seems like most shuttles only service hotels. They were well priced.
Just a note - Ku-Tulum apartment is in close proximity to the buzz and you will hear it. So if you want quiet - take earplugs or another location might be a good idea. Staying in town is a different experience from lounging about at a resort, we loved our stay in Tulum and followed it up with a few days of doing nothing in Playa del Carmen. Ideal combination.
The previous reviews are not exaggerating about the fantastic location of these apartments. With some of the best shopping, restaurants, bars and cafe less than a block away you could easily stay here without needing a car. On the other hand if you are a light sleeper the proximity to the main road may give you some sleepless nights like it did for my husband and I.
I gave Ku Tulum 4 stars because I think it meets the expectations for the pricing, location and ease of booking but this place would be so much better with just a few added amenities. We were only give two bath towels for our 4 night stay and had to use all of the wash clothes, dish towels, hand towels and floor mat to sop up the water that gets all over the bathroom floor from the shower. Plus our bath towels never really dried because of the humidity. It would have been nice to have a change of towels mid stay. When I asked for more towels we were delivered a few more wash clothes but I suppose I should have been more specific. Also, the AC never really cooled down the room and made it even more difficult for sleeping.
Wifi worked well, has a fairly large refrigerator. We never used the kitchen so I can't comment on it.
All in all if you are looking for a great location and don't mind a scaled down rental this is a great option.
