Amazing place! It´s a simple caban, but confortable and everything worked perfectly while we stayed there. I could see the ocean from my bed. The owner, Fabio, is the best host you could have. A very funny and kind italian that will do the best for you to have the best time in Tulum. And we did! FABIO, UN BACIO!... More

Upon exhaustive arrival (from anywhere) all you want to do in this beautiful oasis once you arrive is to LAY DOWN and REST. Oh My God to plop on this bed was so HARD and I knew that there was not going to be a cozy resting and deep sleeping time and there wasn't. There is only one layer and... More

Really nice comfortable cabanas right on the beautiful beach. Very clean with a lot of character unlike some of the other resort-looking places, so nice to have breakfast on the sand, we went next door but one for great tacos and drinks at lunchtime. Restaurants are plentiful all around plus a few boutique type shops (and a small mini mart... More

Simple, a little rustic but so amazing. There is something special about hearing the ocean right on your doorstep and walking out on the soft white sand. Loved this place so much, we decided to extend our stay. Fabio and his staff were fabulous. Always helpful and smiling. Highly recommended!

Having first visited this area more than ten years ago, I still have a bit of sticker shock about Tulum beach hotels, and so haven't stayed in one in a very long time. My friend talked me into this, a very last-minute booking, and I'm very glad we did it. Our room, with two beds (v hard to find in... More

My partner and me enjoyed five wonderful days at Xcanan. We were looking for basic but still comfortable cabanas without the fuss of the corporate resorts. This was exactly what we found. The freshly prepared breakfast on the balconies after an early morning swim were a great start into every day and thanks to the panorama windows we even enjoyed... More

We stayed at Xcanan Cabanas for two nights at the end of our nine day trip and it was our favorite part! We were all sad to leave this beautiful place.The clean, comfortable cabanas couldn't be located in a more beautiful and relaxing location. You are just steps away from the ocean and we watched the sun rise and set... More

Wow, what a place. The photos do not do it justice. This is not a fancy, high rise hotel with twenty swimming pools. It is a beautiful, hidden, palm tree rich and right on the beach. the cabanas are dotted under the trees amongst hammocks. The owner, Fabio is amazing, he cannot do more for you. coffee and breakfast seems... More
