Very basic (and clean) room with good wi-fi and good clean pool (its deep but there is a shallow section). Ernesto and the other staff were super nice. One thing that I noticed that I liked was that all of their linens were dried on clothes lines (love that smell!). The new restaurant next door was very beautiful with amazing... More

This is a decent hotel similar to Motel 6 or Super 8 in the states. The room is spacious and clean. The staff is also friendly. We ran out of hot water after 10 minutes of shower. The address shows Tulum but it’s really far from it. It is located in a small town about 30 minutes from Coba and... More

Our beds were smelling like pee which is not the smell you want in your room. Bed sheets had stains. Shower was not working well. Really nice staff. Large swimming pool. Great location between Tulum and Coba. I would recommend to visit the room before you take it, some rooms were obviously much better than the one we did get,... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Palma Real. Ernesto was an excellent host and very knowledgeable guide to the area. He even let us use his phone when we needed to make some calls! Really quality people and service. I'd go back here in a heartbeat!

We stayed here for 3 nights in late June 2014. You cannot beat the price. It's an older motel run by a couple that lives on site. It's not fancy, but it's clean and safe and it's located on the highway halfway between Tulum and Coba. The couple speaks no English, but they are very nice, and work hard to... More

An ideal place if you have a car to get around. Ernesto and his family had some great rooms for us, accompanied by warm smiles, and great recommendations for beach and food. I wish I could have stayed longer. Hotel Palma Real sings of real people with heart and hospitality. Thanks Ernesto!

I recently stayed at this hotel with my two children. Its location between Tulum and Coba was great for us, as we wanted to visit Coba and the Punta Laguna nature reserve but not stay in overpriced Tulum. The hotel was pleasant; the room clean, spacious and quiet; and the staff helpful and friendly. There's really nothing bad to say... More

It was cheap. My review could end here but the 3 words that sum it up do not reach the TA minimum character requirement for a review! The rooms are spacious. The lighting is poor. The bathroom is tiny. Put the air con on & you think there's a helicopter in the room. The bed was comfortable, On the whole,... More
