If you are after authentic & simple on the beach Tulum accomodation with fabulous hosts then stay here. The location is idyllic. We stayed in the Green cabana and it opens right onto the world's softest sand and a beautiful beach. Natalia and Federico could not have been more charming and they are doing a great job of preserving the... More

perfect place to rest after a long drive through Belize, and enjoy the white sand beach at the door of each comfortable hut. Lovely couple running the place. This is a peacefull resting place, confortable and safe, ideal to go out in Tulum archeological site within bike distance, and enjoy the local restaurant in the nearby town of Tulum. Full... More

We stayed at Playa Mambo in the spring and loved it. It is not for those inclined to 'resort style' accommodations, marble laden walkways, rooftop pools, endless air conditioning, or a party atmosphere. If this is you my suggestion is go to Cancun. If your goal is to reconnect with the universe, your family or loved one, nature; if your... More

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!!!!

I have to say the night started with warm and friendly welcome. Honestly, for me, not because it was my first time be... More

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
