We had a lovely evening at La Flaca. The restaurant is really cute, with plenty of room for larger groups. The host (Manager? Francesca?) was very solicitous and cheerful, and took good care of our party of 6 adults and 5 kids -- not the easiest group to deal with. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and dessert was also very good.... More

We ate at la flaca only. The pasta bolognese is delicious and the pasta seems homemade. The taquitos de huitlacoche were excellent and we tried chicken taquitos too. yum Then we ordered breaded chicken and we loved it. Good prices , super recommended.

Although the staff were friendly they ignored our request to fix the TV that did not work and unlock the safe deposit box. This is however not the worst about it. The water in hotel smells absolutely awful! We couldn't sleep because of the smell from the bathroom (we could feel it even with the door shut). They were playing... More

I'm really sorry for what happened you as our guests and habbiamo explained to them, even though he has searched to resolve the problem, and was unable to find the piece of the bathroom which was broken, considering it was December 25th and it was closed Tulum. For this I have done personally to let them repay the cost of... More

Without previous booking we found a nice La Flanca Hotel. Rooms are big, hotel is just on a main street and pizza in restaurant was delicious! (plus if you stay in a hotel you get a discount in restaurant) The only thing was that the AC was so loud and old! I know it sounds funny, but it was;) Personal... More

My review is for the restaurant La Flaca, since I didn't stay in this hotel. The restaurant is in the middle of the main street of Tulum. It's informal and cozy. The service is good and waiters, as well as the owner are very friendly people. We celebrated my birthday there and they helped to make the moment special. Although... More

We ate at La Flaca during our stay in Tulum and we enjoyed a lot the meal but not only it. People at La Flaca are really nice and they do their best to make your time there special. The chef created an extra-menu dish for me because I am vegetarian and I wanted scrambled eggs in an unusual way.... More

Right in downtown Tulum,sits this restaurant hotel. My room is spotless, the bed isn't your typical hard Mexican bed, it was just right. Best of all a TV, which is hard to find in hotels in Tulum. The staff was very helpful in every way, and negotiated taxi fare for me. I have absolutely zero complaints, nothing but compliments. I... More

I booked this place online en route between Cancun and Tulum (it was called Luna Llena Downtown back then). At the time, there were almost no other rooms available in town and so, I was convinced to book three nights in advance. A grave mistake. The hotel is situated in a rather run down building in the very center of... More
