Super duper beautiful resort. Silent. Designed very well. Loved our little bungalow on the beach. Will ask for that specific one when we return. Staff was great. Breakfast on our little porch both days was romantic and relaxing. Wish that they gave you more coffee with that. The bathroom was clean and beautiful, the bed was comfortable and the staff... More

Great beach beds, chairs and swinging beds easily available.Room 5a is great. No AC but wonderful beach breeze was plenty for our trip. Only (2) issues. only 1 available outlet in the room to charge all... More

We stayed in #3/4, one room on top of the other; my husband and I were in the King upstairs; my kids had twins downstairs. We were very close to the beach. Part of the reason I picked these units was the air conditioning that was supposed to be on from 9 to 9 for sleeping (sometimes it went on... More

Where to start? Nueva Vida de Ramiro is absolutely beautiful! Their size of the resort and cabana setup makes you feel like you are at your own private resort. We got married here in the fall of 2014 and could not have been more pleased with the event. With around 40 guests, we occupied about half of the resort. From... More

We were pleasantly surprised with Nueva Vida! I had not heard of it before and had become overwhelmed with all the choices to stay in Tulum. After reading many tripadvisor reviews on Nueva Vida and them having the dates available we needed, we booked. All I can say is wow, absolutely perfect experience. We arrived late by car. Very easy... More

Wow, I can't say enough about NVR. There service again was great. What made it better? That they now offer vouchers as well to have breakfast at La Zebra! I have been to Tulum 2 times before this trip, and this year was outstanding. They really do have the best beach setup. They do not have a restaurant on the... More

After searching around quite a while on the web we finally picked Nueva Vida de Ramiro for our stay and we were very happy with this choice. We had the bungalow “Pasion Marina” which is quite close to the beach. Nice and large room, with good view on the sea. The toilet and shower are separated. AC (a big fan... More

Dear roswell_co: Thank you for your review. We are happy you had such a nice time at the hotel, yet surprised that Casa Banana charged for another bread since you can have more of the continental breakfast without charge. We did address with their manager the flies and it has been taken care off, although we also have now the... More

Eight days of calm, clean rest. Loved the rope beds floating above the sand and the hidden jungle cottages. Cannot recommend with greater assurance. The breakfast included was delicious. Staff is perfecto and renting bikes and yoga at nearby Sanara a plus.

It's too bad that other users don't appreciate what the real draw of Nueva Vida is: an eco-friendly lodge with zero airs. The hotel doesn't position itself as a luxury hotel. Yes, there isn't AC (though some of the rooms have since had it added) and the water is not ideal but the whole point of staying at this property... More
