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. I can't say enough good things about this place. Excellent price. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. The air conditioning worked very well. Kudos to the housekeeping staff. Our... More

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

Nice place in a jungle-like setting. Flowers, lizards, butterflies all over. Almost a small resort-like feel to the place. Pool was nice, but the gardener was on vacation the week we were there, so it was a bit murky. Would go back again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, non- beach club atmosphere!

We needed a place to stay one night in order to access the ruins as soon as they opened and thus get ahead of the invading hordes of tourist busses. The setting in a jungly garden a block inland from the main road an the south end of town was well sign posted and easy to find. We took the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff were sweet and kind to us and our baby. The pool was lovely. It is far from the beach, but easy to catch a taxi. The restaurant was delicious, and the pool a lifesaver when the temperatures got high. The price is really reasonable for the high quality of hotel.... More
