The Cabanas are set on a lovely, quiet section of the beach. They are quite simple, but clean and well kept. Echoing the other reviews, Fabio was fantastic; so polite, friendly, conscientious and hospitable. Also, the other staff were friendly and professional. The free breakfast in the morning on the beach facing out to the sea was a wonderful touch.

We were in Tulum for the second time and stayed at Playa XCanan for 4 weeks. We made our choice because of the great reviews it had and we were not disappointed! We had the big cabana on top, the view every morning was breathtaking. We were woken up by the orange rising sun and shortly thereafter coffee and breakfast... More

The cabañas are simple and rustic, but clean. They're directly at the beach, which offers some sunbeds under the palms, but unfortunately lacks parasols unlike the other more expensive hotels. The host is an amazing person and super helpful and friendly and helps you out with everything needed - he even helped us out when the stores were closed. The... More

This hotel is amazing. The views of the stunning beach as soon as we step out of our hotel are breathe taking. The hotel itself is lovely. You get your own little cute beach hut. Very cosy. Our hut had a nice leather sofa and table outside where we can relax/ eat whilst watching the ocean. The owner Fabio is... More

For what we paid - relative to US and Mexican prices - this was quite reasonable. ~$100 per night. We had the ground level bungalow room that's closest to the beach (right on/in the beach if I'm being honest). It's comfortable. No AC. But I think that's standard of the area. You need to leave the door open at night... More

I had such a lovely, relaxing time staying here for a week with a large group of friends spread across a few of the rooms. All the basics are covered (although we did only have a shower curtain for a bathroom door, which took a bit of getting used to) the rooms are clean, tidy and serviced every morning. The... More

From the moment we arrived to Playa Xcanan, I knew we had found paradise. Even though this is one of the less expensive places to stay (especially in low-season), I truly believe it's one of the best in Tulum. Unlike most of the other hotels, the beachfront doesn't have an excessive number of tanning chairs/beds, so it never feels packed.... More

I was here for one night in January. The feeling is more of a bed and breakfast as the owner, Fabio, lives there and is is wonderful and always there to help. The room was large with an open bathroom and the most fantastic porch and view. Tulum is wonderful for certain people but is not for everyone. If you... More

The owner fabio couldnt have been more amazing and hardworking and helpful. He made sure that our entire trip went as smoothly as possible. It felt like we were staying with a family but with our own privacy. The beach view is stunning and the hotel grounds are the soft powdery sand itself. Only problem we had was with the... More
