Just spent a week in Tulum at the Chilam Balam. Tulum is a sort of hippy dippy paradise that is changing with the arrival of both expats and gated communities. If you want cheap and cheerful while searching out whatever your possibilities are, this is the place for you. Situated on the main drag, with a common balcony on the... More

We went to several hotels and cabanas located on beach and in town. The places on beach were more expensive and several had no electricity after a certain time in evening as the beach was an "eco friendly zone". This hotel was clean. We were accommodated on short notice. Room 22/23 on second floor were better than rooms we stayed... More

The place was decently clean. The clerk even agree to watch over out luggage which he put behind the check in desk. By US standards, it is kind of a Plain Jane, really a fine deal down in this area. I would definitely stay agan.

We booked the hotel locally for one night. We had the "coba suite". We had a look at the room before booking and everything seemed fine. We paid about 600 Mex for the room. During the night I woke up because of a very intense smell of foul eggs in the room. Then there was the noise of pump starting... More

The place is not the most luxurious but has everything you could need: hot water, air conditioning (a bit slow cooling), comfortable beds, cable TV and ceiling fan (a bit noisy). The location is perfect, has many things about: pharmacy, food, bars, bus terminal. In high season cost me 650 pesos per night for 4 people, which was fully accessible.... More

We spent a few nights here and found it to be a good hotel. It’s nothing flashy but a really good budget option. We had a large room upstairs, just by the stairs which cost M$300 per night for a double room. There was AC, good storage, clean bathroom with hot water, TV and a comfortable bed. We had WIFI...

We stayed for two nights - the first "night" was from 4.30 in the morning when we got off a nine hour nightmare ADO bus from Belize City (broken air conditioningp and a very chemically smelly toilet). We were so tired we slept instantly only noticing later in the day how odd the room smelt due to faulty plumbing. The... More
