Fantastic stay. The beach-front cabanas are worth the price. Wouldn't opt to stay in the other units. Great location. Take the poor reviews with a grain of salt. Yes the service isn't 4 star, and the electricity and water are spotty, but you are booking a stay in a rustic spot on an intentionally low-key beach. If you are looking... More

We were lucky enough to spend 8 days in this beautiful place ! Such amazing place, ideal for all who are in love with nature, beauty and peace. We'll keep this image all over the year, and it will help - for sure during these difficult days- to keep hope and faith.. in the beauty of life! The personal is... More

We arrived at this beautiful place wondering why there was no one - not even 1 customer. We then realized the service was awful, food not very good and on top of this they wanted to charge us 10% commission for paying with a debit card. It's really a shame as this place has a lot of potential if the... More

Good: Beautiful beach location, reasonably priced, relaxing place.. hammocks, sun loungers under palm trees Bad: No hot water, limited electricity a few hours a night, need to install window nets to allow for air circulation as the nights are hot!

Absolutely the best cabañas in Tulum. The only place that conserve the soul of this place. No stress, beautiful beach, peaceful place to stay with kids, family, friends. Service is excellent, food very good and the atmosphere is wonderful. I'd love to spend months there. I recommend the place 100%. You won't find any other traditional cabañas like that in... More

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...
