Hemingway Eco Beach Resort is a unique and charming place to stay. It is right on the ocean/ beach in a beautiful location. The service was good. I would recommend trying the restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. They offered frequent yoga classes. Our instructor was friendly and we all enjoyed her yoga class. The rooms are beautiful. However,... More

Well, I'll start to say the obvious good things about this place. The location is great - right on the beach and only 100 metres from the calm sandy beach area. The cabanas are also very good (I wouldn't say awesome...they are showing some minor neglect). We stayed at one located near the road but on the beach side. Not... More

A last-minute change of plans in Tulum ahead of the Christmas holiday meant that we were unable to stay at Hemingway Beach Resort. Fortunately, Paola was very accommodating and refunded our deposit with minimal difficulty. We're very appreciative of Paola's quick response and helpful nature. We'll absolutely stay at Hemingway during our next trip.

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...

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
