My Cousin got married on Paamul Beach on 05/21/2015. Everything was perfect! Playa del Carmen has had alot of seaweed lately, and Paamul cleaned it up nicely for the wedding ceremony. It was a small intimate wedding, with only a few hotel guests around, who happily watched the wedding take place. Some even snapped photos. It was a nice touch,... More

I spent 4 wonderful days here this week and an amazed at how perfect every second was. The minute I walked out of the Cancun airport a driver was waiting with a smile ready to take us to heaven on earth. Paamul is about an hour south of Cancun, a few miles from Playa Del Carmen but feels a world... More

Stayed there for 5 nights in April. Exactly what we expected and hoped for but bear in mind the sea is only partially accessible - lots of seaweed around which they try to clear but it comes back v quickly. Lovely beach and setting, rooms all fine and clean. Restaurant very limited in terms of good food but it is... More

We new exactly what we were looking for and found it here. Beach front basic accommodations with awesome views. Great food in the restaurant, greater margarita's and super friendly people. Very relaxing if that's what you are looking for,

As an expat who resides year round in Mexico I KNOW a good...no make that a great margherita when I drink one! Paamul is a jewel of a beach where you can sit under a palapa for free...dine on great fish tacos in the open air restaurant overlooking the Caribbean... and sip...and I mean sip on their renowned margheritas.

It all started out very well: we were on our honeymoon and due to that given a free upgrade to a beachfront suite when we booked a room at this hotel for our trip. It sounded really nice and welcoming. It was supposed to be the last leg of our Yucatan trip so we were especially looking forward to the... More

Stayed here for two nights while visiting my son. Loved it! Spacious room, well equipped and very clean with good bathroom. But the best thing is the amazing beach and beautiful view. Very tranquil. Awesome sunrise. Also loved the iguanas that sun themselves nearby.

This boutique, family-run hotel exceeded my expectations. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and clean. Most impressive was the service, delivered promptly. For example, I asked for a step to be installed in front of the tub as I had difficulty climbing in. Within minutes two construction blocks were delivered and covered with a towel (see the picture). One suggestion... More

We had seen this place and eaten at the restaurant on snorkel tour two years ago. We arranged the room online and paid a deposit, arriving at the hotel as expected. We were surprised that there was no mini supermarket on site. The mini super was a half mile walk back up the road, and although the lady running it... More

We loved staying here so much that we went back 5 months later to the day to get married. The staff is wonderful. The hotel is clean and beautiful. The sunrise is magnificent while sipping coffee on your balcony. Can't wait to go back!
