My group of 14 people stayed in the Palapa House for 5 days. The house is incredible and better than it looks on the website. The actual palapa is amazing. The perfect outdoor living room. The staff was always on hand and made sure that we had everything that we needed. They also had perfect recommendations for dinner reservations. I... More

The best place to stay in when visiting Tulum. You sleep by the sea...you can hear the waves all night long and next day you can also wake up and admire the beauty of the sun and go for a nice nice walk by the beach!

First, I've been to Playa Papaya many times when I used to live in the Riviera Maya and now on my two week vacation back, I believe my friends and I spent about 7 of our days/nights here! It's that good. So much about it makes it great. It's right on the beach, and you don't need to stay there... More

We came across this place by a lucky accident! It is a very hip, tranquil and nice spot along the Tulum beach. Delicious food & cocktails, comfortable beds spread far away from each other and nice vibe. No other beach club we went to afterwards could compare! Highly recommended!

The hotel is set in an idyllic spot in beautiful tulum. The food is good at the restaurant and they have a great vibe going The dive shop / excursions run by Pablo associated to the property are fantastic and I would use them even if didn't stay here. Unfortunately they know nothing about hospitality and I would not suggest... More

The Papaya Playa Project is such a special, tranquil place. The staff are kind and easy to talk to whether you want to speak Spanish or English. We were were here for breakfast due to a great recommendation. Chilaquiles were perfect, truly perfect. My son got pancakes and they were SO GOOD! I wish I stayed there. If you want... More

My husband and I stayed in a small oceanfront hut that had a small deck with two chairs and a hammock. Outstanding view that could be seen from bed. Food at the restaurant was wonderful, including the continental breakfast. Our holistic massage was one of the best we've ever had. The resort also offered tours and we went snorkeling in... More

If you want to basically camp in a homeless shelter for the rate of a decent hotel, this is the place for you! Not only did I fall in a man made hole and bruised my entire right leg, our luggage was soaked with rain because the rooms are so poorly sealed. Also, plan to shower in salt water and... More
