Love Don Diego! We only stayed 1 short night as we passed through Tulum. Loved it. It's quiet, clean, and friendly. Great restraunt with wonderful food. The ceviche and guacamole was freshly made and wonderful. Pretty little pool as the backdrop for your dining. Rooms were simple but clean and comfortable. And a great breakfast in the morning. We look... More

Wonderful hotel. Excellent friendly, attentive staff. Well designed with seating areas around the pool and by the small bar/reception. Our room was large with a huge bed, a typical local design and great air con which was really needed. The patio over looked the gardens and beehives. We had a great hammock, lovely to relax in and watch the bird... More

Overall: Very special oasis in Tulum. Wonderfully maintained and lovely grounds and appointed rooms. Food: Very good food & breakfast is included. Diner is fantastic with a different special every night...very delicious. Cabana/ Palapa: Spacious room with traditional Mayan thatch roof, nice washroom & shower. Thatch roof is great in theory, BUT you are inside the city. Be prepared for... More

This is at the edge of the town just off the main road rather than being a beachside property and all the better for it--it's very quiet and has a lovely relaxed tranquil jungle feel. A photo I sent made people think I was in a nature reserve and it was just the view from the bedroom. It's quirky and... More

We visited Tulum for a few nights and found Don Diego's to be the perfect spot for my husband and I. It was one of the coolest hotels I've ever stayed in. It feels like you are in the jungle. The food was fantastic and the rooms were spotless. We were so happy to be able to chat with the... More

My husband & I were charmed by this hotel, the incredible staff, and the cuisine! Because it's not a luxury property, and is not on the beach, it's not perfect for everyone. It was a perfect fit for us, and so I compiled this list to help describe the pro/con of DDDLS. The best place to stay in Tulum, considering:... More

We spent 3 nights at Don Diego in December and had a delightful stay. Our room was very simple, with no TV or fancy furniture. We did opt for air conditioning and a balcony. The hotel amenities are lovely. We enjoyed the pool area, and the grounds. The staff was terrific, including Charlie (one of the owners), Sabrina, Edgar and... More

This small hotel is charming with a restaurant that provides world class cuisine. Even if you choose to not to stay at this hotel, you should pay its restaurant a visit .The property is quaint with luscious gardens and a small pool. I was well aware that I would be staying in a bungalow with a fan...which was charming and... More

The place gives off a cruisey beach house vibe (even though the beach is a bit of a hike). I came with my parents and brother, we are all more into the activities side of Tulum so we didn't mind that the place is relatively basic; this is NOT like the mega-resorts that line the highways. The staff were all... More

Nice and relaxing atmosphere to this place when you walk in. The room is set up very well with a hammock, chair and large bed. Service was great, gave us a map of the area, tips on places to go and got us in our room quickly. Shower was hot every time, wifi in room was generally good, bed was... More
