Although the location is beautiful, I was very disappointed by the lack of customer service. Not only did the proprietor lose my reservation, she had no record of my having paid the deposit. There was no record. Luckily I had my phone with the emails documenting everything. After I paid in cash, I was refused a receipt. Upon returning home,... More

I had stayed in Hemingway for about 6 times since 2008. When I first stayed there, this place was outstanding by any means. It was serene, dreamy vacation. Our first times were so great we did not care the prices were higher than others-- it was worth it. I sent over so many friends over the years. It was intimate,... More

hemingaway is a little place right in front of the ocean, you will find yourself bewithched by the blu and white of the place. Very simple cabanas, sometimes no light and the tap water is brownish but this is part of the charm of the place. The silence and the brids'calls at night envelops you to a distant world and... More

We stayed at Hemingway in January 2013 and it was an absolute dream. We returned December 2013 and had quite a different experience - mostly at the fault of its proximity in between Amansala (Home of Bikini Boot camp). Everything I wrote about Hemingway in January holds true minus the vibe that is killed by the crowds at Amansala. Perhaps... More

My son and I arrived on December 26, 2013. I was so happy to be away with him and share a new experience. After a private yoga class, I was approached by Adriana, the manager. She said that she was expecting me to check out that day. It was the 29th. I had purchased expensive plane tickets for my son... More

We returned for another stay at Hemingway and fell in love with the place all over again. There just isn't a better location or a more welcoming staff to be found. Hemingway's new resort manager Adriana is a fantastic new addition. She was warm, knowledgeable and helpful with all aspects of our stay. She even sent me home with a... More

Travelled to Tulum twice this year, and most recently stayed at Hemingway. I had a flu the week before arriving, so was still a little low on energy and needed to chill - and this was the perfect place. The grounds of Paola's little hotel/resort are beautiful - so simple and using white beach sand for the little paths between... More

My wife and I went here for a romantic week. Everything was great. we had the 2nd floor oceanfront cabana above the bar. Beautiful views from our hammocks on our private deck. The food was very nice, the breakfasts (included) were particulalry good. The staff left us alone but were always nearby if needed. i would definitely recommend this resort.

I spent a lovely week in Hemingway hotel in Tulum in April. This is the fifth hotel I have stayed at in Tulum, they are all different and lovely in there own way but I will definitely stay here again. What made Hemingway special to me was the yoga and the massage on site. Marlena the yoga instructor and massage... More

ALL of the staff including the housekeeping and Valerio who helped us carry our bags through the sand to our taxi, were great. The decor is darling, beachy and colorful. It's rustic. You can see the sand through tiny spaces in the floor boards. I got eaten alive by mosquitos in other parts of Tulum but I think the stiff... More
