My intention was to chill so I loved that Tulum (the whole town of Tulum in general) forced me to slow down and chill. I loved loved loved lying on the hammock on the balcony anytime in the morning noon and/or night listening to the waves crash with the amazing breeze. Night walks on the beach were probably my favorite.... More

We recently stayed three nights on honeymoon. The food and service at the restaurant/bar were excellent. We had a junior suite and our room inside was very nice. However it was not private at all and we could hear every move the family next door made and assume they could hear ours as well. We had a view of the... More

Everything about Ahau is what a vacation should be - beautiful, relaxing, good service, nice staff. What a treat to step out from our master suite right on to the pure white sand. Special thanks to Jill and Ari at the front desk - always helpful and smiling, Martin and the rest of the staff in the restaurant who always... More

I would like to say a special thank you to the Owners and staff at Ahau for accommodating our family on a last minute stay at the resort. Ahau is not one of the mega Resorts in Tulum that I am used to staying at. It's a smaller quaint palapa topped bungalow "ecco" resort on the Tulum "Hotel Zone" road... More

If you're planning a trip to Tulum, stay at Ahau!! My boyfriend and I just returned from a 6-night stay at Ahau, and everything about our experience there was excellent. We stayed in a junior suite for the first three nights and a master suite for the remaining three. The master suite was truly the most beautiful room I've ever... More

I went to Ahau for a yoga retreat in late January; it was one of the best vacations I have ever experienced. The Hotel was amazing, no shoes necessary, the entire resort is built on finely sifted white sand. We never needed to eat anywhere else, the food at Ahau, including early morning coffee, was fabulous. If this isn't reason... More

Ahau feels as good as it looks. Mellow, friendly, no attitude. The people there know what they're doing and it shows. There's a great room for yoga and a very sweet room for massage. For massage, and a truly cosmic experience, look for Ines, who has cosmic energy in her beautiful hands.
