I have to agree with most of the reviews on TA about Los Arrecifes! It is one of the prettiest properties on Tulum beach but the facilities and service leave a lot to be desired, to say the least. The area between the room units and the beach is basically a palm tree grove, with row upon row of palm... More

The hotel is just horrible. No service at all. There's no floor it's all sand. EVERYWHERE. Rooms are so basic that literally it only includes the BED and a cheap fan. Windows without glass. No electricity during day time. The people serving the hotel are mayans. They are not so servicial. The only good thing is that it's in the... More

We were very lucky to find this hotel. We occupied 3 bedrooms, 2 singles and 1 double. All of them we're clean. The 2 single bedrooms were in the first floor and they have a small patio in the front with ocean view were you can hang out (in our case there was room for 7 people). The double bedroom... More

First of all, I respectfully disagree with reviewers who called the staff apathetic, unhelpful and rude. Please keep in mind where you are - in a region where the locals speaks the Mayan language FIRST, Spanish second and if you are lucky they will speak English but the fact that they do not speak your language should not be mistaken...

Cabanas arrecifes is well located, on the beach. This is the only good point of this hotel. I had a bad experience in this hotel, I recommend you to choose another one. I reserved for the high season of Christmas holidays. I do understand they are busy during this period but they do not provide any good service. First, the... More

Very highly recommended for some types of travelers. I have great memories staying here. Location: Arrecifes is in roughly the best part of the Tulum beach strip, in my opinion. Go a bit north towards the ruins, and you have too many tour bus, cruise, daytripper, and mega resort traffic. South is beautiful but a little far away from restaurants... More

Good place on the beach, cheaper then others and a bit less fency but overall quite nice and romantic. Doors did not lock very well. Good for travellers qho dont really expect much other then hearing the sound of the waves and chill out on the seaview terrace dronking a beer. Owner not very talkative but alright. ....

We visited the beach at the Arrecifes while staying in Tulum town. The beach was fantastic and while enjoying the sea and the sand, my wife went and asked if they had any rooms at a reasonable rate that would take us and our two teenagers. They had, and when we saw the room, we went straight to the balcony... More

los arrecifes (i thought it was called hotel) is south of the ruins on the private beach. we stayed in the cabanas and although they dont have floors (sand) they were really comfortable and fun to sleep in! waking up on the beach was a gem. the restaurant has good food - not too pricy for tulum and warm water...
