Tulum is an incredibly beautiful area with plenty of expensive accommodation options. My partner and I couldn't believe our luck when we found Playa Esperanza. We first stayed in one of the most basic dune bungalows - though small it was spotless and the bed was comfortable. The breeze through the open wooden walls at night was straight off the... More

We had traveled to Tulum in the past and walked the beaches and always wondered about Playa Esperanza because from the beach it looked beautiful. We happen to drive down from Playa del Carmen and lucked out on a cabana right on the beach with them. This truly is a paradise away from the madness. It is very peaceful. With... More

This is a place that is a dream come true, especially if you are interested in having a different vacation away from all cell phones and technology. This resort is the closest to nature that you can be like when you go camping, but with accommodations like if you are in a rustic room near the beach and maid service... More

The only problem I have with playa Esperanza is the name.. It should be playa paradise. It was actually a bit overwhelming for the first few moments. It takes a min but you'll get use to it! The beach is amazing, the rooms are unique my man Angel and George kill it in the kitchen, and last but not least... More

My daughters and I stayed here for 5 days in August and had a wonderful time! The setting was absolutely delightful. I've traveled a lot, and the ocean, the beach, the sand, the hammocks slung between the palm trees, the torchlight, the stars and the moonlight - all were magical! The restaurant was laid back with delicious food, friendly (if... More

We came across this place as we walked down playa maya beach. We fell in love with this little beach front hideaway hidden amongst the palm trees and set on the white carribean beaches of Tulum. The food here... Is incredible! Make sure you try the mushroom ravioli! It's home made and to die for! The service can be a... More

Great atmosphere, great staff, the guys behind the bar were always so helpful and made the stay so much better. The rooms are cute and critters can get in but that sort of comes with a jungle cabana so I can't fault them for the wild life. Power is on from dusk to midnight which is just enough to recharge...

I wanted to give Playa Esperanza 4 stars...I really do. Hopefully they'll get there. Positives: The natural landscape on that side of the beach is simply breath-taking. Playa Esperanza maintains such beautiful grounds. The hammocks are lovely for...well..day OR night! The staff is super sweet, friendly, and always helpful. The new restaurant...Nuestra Cocina..is absolutely delicious with an equally as friendly... More

Tulum boats one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Mexico and Playa Esperanza is a perfect place to stay and experience the turquoise water and quiet sunsets. I stayed in the cheapest cabanas with shared bathroom facilities. The room was beautifully decorated, the bed very comfy and the sound of the waves lulled you to sleep. The bathroom... More

Having spent hours sifting through countless hotels in Tulum on Tripadvisor, I stumbled upon this little gem of a place and whilst other hotels are no doubt very nice too, they do not compare in any way to the beauty and style of Playa Esperanza nor its value for money. Situated around a central open air restaurant area owned by... More
