This is an amazing jewel of a location. Simple, elegant, stunning ocean views and beach access immediately off your private deck. If you are looking to sleep & awake to the sounds of rolling waves, star gaze with brilliant clarity, long walks on deep sand beaches - this is the place. But it's not Disney World or Atlantis! It's a... More

I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for Paamul. Let's call it 3.5. The positives for this property are the location and the unspoiled beauty of the beach. It is a very small hotel, just about a dozen rooms. We booked the master suite, but I would not do that in the future. The larger kitchen and dining area weren't... More

My fiancé and I were so excited to go to Mexico, especially Paamul. Unfortunately, upon arriving in Cancun, our bags were lost (for about 36 hours) and then, when we stopped to buy clothes, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc., a shoulder bag was stolen from our rental car. It contained our passports, among other things. Justine and Andrea at Paamul were SO... More

We had stayed in Paamul 15 years ago and this we decided to drop back in for a few days during a holiday centered in Puerto Morelos. In those intervening years there have been some changes, including rebuilding after hurricane damage. We LOVED our stay there this February. We had a beach level room, so that you walk off your...

Stayed in Paamul January 30 to February 7th, 2014. This year I stayed in room 6, which is a 2nd level suite. My first time on this level, and I must say, I loved it. The balcony affords a nice combination of sun and shade through the entire day. The sunrises are stellar from these vantage points. I reviewed the... More

If you want tranquility and nature, this is the place to be! No loud blaring music, not too many people, just iguanas, birds and a gorgeous beach. I stayed in a hotel room on the main floor and loved my three nights there. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The porch had lovely contemporary furniture to enjoy the gorgeous... More

Spent a wonderful week in Paamul with my mother in 2012 and will be returning next month (Feb. 2014) with more family members. Very excited to share this beautiful spot with more people. We stayed in the hotel with an incredible view of the bay. The accomodations were clean and incredibly comfortable. The staff took very good care of us.... More

I stayed at Paamul Hotel in December 2013. I rented a Cabana right in front of the beach... beautiful! The place in general didn't amaze me. The Cabana inside covers just about the basic needs. Bed, enough shelter for a night and a bathroom area that I could rate from average to below average. Anyway, the attractiveness of the place... More
