We were blown away by the beauty of the view! By far the best ever... The cabanas are eco friendly and very charming. We rented the green cabana with our family, this one is beachfront. There is no airco , so it can be warm. The new owners are so sweet, we will definitly come back!!!!

We actually stayed here in June of 2010 but I never got around to writing a review. So rather than review the place (which was fabulous but something may have changed since then) I thought I would give info about its location etc. Top tip for staying in Tulum - beachfront location and room. It's hot and there are bugs... More

We attended the first ever wedding for these new owners at this amazing spot on June 14th... From the simple decor of the rooms to the black and white beach furniture it was just breathtaking. Beautiful turquoise water and the softest sugar sand beaches I've ever seen or felt. We had wonderful breakfasts every morning with hand made jelly and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of our trip through Guatemala and Mexico. We chose the "suite" at this cosy little place and got exactly what we expected! The view from the suite is magnifique and you get a lot of privacy. The rooms are all directly on the beach, which is very convenient for morning or... More

I've never known any other hotel owner so helpful and nice as Nati, she's awesome. and so was Fede.... More
