Stayed at Malix Pek for two nights December 2014. Good location (convenient to all downtown attractions), nice hosts, clean, quiet place. However, the posada is overpriced when compared to other similar hotels / cabañas in Tulum Pueblo.

We stayed for one night. The manager was Italian so with us extremely kind and fully available for suggestions and help. The room was big and very clean, probably only the bathroom was slightly below the standard of the room but the final evaluation is good.

Tha Posada is really charming and confortable. Clean rooms and very cozy but most important of all is his owner who really gives 100% service satisfasfaction. This is the kind of places and people who you came back from your vacarions and want to express and wish the best for his place. So, so so recommended !!!!!! Judith Kuj

The place was on the corner of main road at walking distance from Tulum bus station. Rooms were clean and not noisy. Many places to eat around. We went to El Captain and the food was very tasty with good prices. I advice to rent a bike to go the beach. It is not far.

The hotel has a good location, if you want to stay in town and not on the hotel strip along the beach. Cosy, nice and clean. A bit too expensive for the standard and location. A dog at the hotel was barking a bit too much.

My friend and I are a couple of older backpackers travelling through Central America (consequently on a budget) and Tulum was our kick off point. We found this place to be funky, clean and the Italian hosts and their numerous pets went over and beyond to make us feel welcome. It's basic but clean and the central location is ideal... More

Had a good experience here, but as usual with cash only payment, because we booked online in dollars and payed in pesos, we accepted the exchange rate the hotel offers.(1-2pesos below the current exchange) We stayed 2 nights. The owners are nice. The rooms are clean, they are minimalistic and modern. We didn't have much water pressure or hot water... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, choosing this Posada also for the comments of Trip Advisor. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. The welcome from the staff was enough good, giving us some basic information. The room with a pour furnishment, absolutely not worth the price paid. For us it was like the usual management by the Italians to cheat tourists.... More

We had a hard time finding somewhere to stay in Tulum because we travelled during the holidays, so we ended up here. As others have mentioned, this hotel only accepts cash. That said, there are three banks on the main drag very close by. We had a room on the main floor and it was large and clean. The room... More

Not the best place to stay at (be aware of the 5 star ratings for this place)... THIS IS A CASH ONLY PLACE! 1) The other reviews are correct that the cleaning lady and the staff are really nice. The place is well located for those who want to enjoy the night life instead of the beach part of town.... More
