In Tulum essentially there's a choice between the beach and the town to stay in - we opted for this place in the town and were really pleased by what we found - rooms are well presented, have a little garden and access to a well shaded pool. The vibe is very relaxed and low key, the staff helpful and... More

Very comfortable place to stay. Peaceful. Beautiful room. Simple, clean. Nice décor including talavera tiles and pretty Mexican art. hammock on your private patio. AC which was great during the hot week I was in Tulum.

We returned to Don Diego for the second time while traveling to Tulum to run a 10k race. The first time was so nice that it was an easy choice to look them up again. Don Diego is dog friendly and is located where it is easy to get out and exercise. Beautiful gardens and setting, it provides a relaxing... More

Stayed 3 nights in 2 rooms. Very nice quiet hotel, with a very nice pool. The hotel in located a 15 min walk outside the center of Tulum. The distance wasn't a problem for us. The hotel recommended a diveoperator LA Calypso, witch we used for diving in Cenotes. That was great.

Don Diego de la Selva was a comfortable and charming hotel. It was within walking distance of bars and restaurants and a short cab ride to the beach. The room was large and bright. Breakfast was included and the grounds, with a nice pool, are quite welcoming. In addition, the staff was helpful and courteous. I would definitely stay at... More

Don Diego de la Selva was perfect for our honeymoon in Tulum. The gardens are beautiful and create a romantic atmosphere. A bee farm produces delicious honey and artisanal soaps. The abundant breakfast includes fresh squeezed juice (a different one for each day of the week!), coffee, pastries and delicious jams, and a choice of three breakfast platters. A filling... More

This place is away from the beach so may not be ideal, but certainly feels like a little jungle oasis in Tulum. The rooms are colorfully and carefully decorated, large, and very clean. There were numerous outlets with European and USB plugs. The pool is smaller, but still very nice and well maintained. The gardens are home to an apiary... More

Don Diego sits a few feet off the major roads in downtown Tulum, away from the beach. Its clientele tend toward the family-oriented, with few backpackers or party animals. The hotel provides a quiet, peaceful base of operations from which you can explore Tulum. The restaurant isn't anything to write home about--there are much better options within an easy drive--but...

The owners of this hotel understand hospitality and what travellers want. Charles is so friendly and helpful. Well priced accommodation with hot water, free breakfast, free communal water and fridge! Lovely hotel with nice pool and no road noise, only sounds from la selva. Sadly the restaurant was closed for period we were there. Bring your repellant!

I was the leader of a group of 12 birders/butterfly watchers on a recent trip to Mexico. We stayed three nights at the Don Diego de la Selva hotel in Tulum.

Thank you Eric! You had a great team with you and we took a lot of pleasure to host you all. I learned a bit more about birds and butterflies, that was so nice. Say hello to the whole group if you see them, and have a great day! Charles Galligani More
