We stayed in cabana #3 which was a stand alone cabana just 25 steps from beach chairs. We were there with our two elementary aged kids. The room was comfortable and clean. There is no AC (I knew this going in) and it was "getting to me" after two days of waking up sweating and the bathroom smelling swampy. A... More

This hotel is like many others along the beach of Tulum. It's small, on ocean, friendly staff and gives you a sense of getting away. The problem, as I see it, is not really the hotel's, it's what Tulum has become. If someone can explain to me what "eco chic" means than maybe I can make sense of why I... More

We loved the location --- right on one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen (warm water, gentle waves, fine white sand). The "eco" rules keep this area from getting too crowded. It's gorgeous. There are loads of interesting things to do in the area -- cenotes, ruins, etc. One tip: the ATMs in this hotel zone charge outrageous fees,... More

Not to say that we expected something bad or anything - but we really weren't prepared for how gorgeous and tranquil the area was! It was our first time in a resort of this style, and I have to say, now we're spoiled (we've never really cared for the big all inclusives, anyway). It's centrally located in the playa zone,... More

Amazing and beautiful hotel in Tulum! I stayed at cabana 23, a second floor with ocean view. It was so wonderful to see the sea every morning. The staff is very friendly and they call you for your name, and give you tips for Tulum and things to do. The room is very comfortable and always was clean. I will... More

We went to Mexico for the first time this spring, and had a wonderful Holiday. We stayed at Playa Azul for eight full days. The room was clean, neat and absolutely charming, Some nights, one would certainly have welcome AC, but the sea breeze anyway kept the temperature on a decent level.The service was good, and the restaurant was fantastic....

Hi Rolf! Thank you very much for your review :) I will pass on your comments to Arturo and Benjamin, for sure. Glad you enjoyed a couple of good tequilas at the bar and stayed with us for most of your meals. Chicken mole rocks, I agree! Really looking forward to your next visit. Our very best, More

Once we got used to the lack of a bathroom door, we enjoyed our cabana with its terrace overlooking the garden. The room was kept clean and tidy by the staff, and we spent many hours enjoying the restaurant and bar. The bar staff made sure we had great service even when lying on the beach. Definitely not luxurious, but... More

We just returned from Plaza Azul. Our group was there for a wedding and occupied approximately 10 of their 20-something rooms. Room 19 and 21 were tolerable, but the rest of us were dying from the heat. No A/C, which we knew going in, but I assumed we would have cross ventilated windows and ceiling fans (only one of our...

I went there with my husband for our honeymoon in Feb. 2014. The location is great. The beach is very pretty, a lot of little hotels/restaurants at walking distance. The hotel/rooms are super cute. At the beginning I was not sure I was going to like it because I was used to the big resorts. Here everything is and feels... More

My husband and I spent five days at this small, friendly hotel. Tulum is a wonderful town if you're looking for local color and interaction. We were right on the beach. The hotel's restaurant served delicious food and the staff was so friendly and hospitable. We ate breakfast on their porch every morning. The huevos montelenos were our favorite. Our... More
