My boyfriend and I have been to Tulum three times together, and once separately before we got together, so we've had many experiences in Tulum. Last year, we stayed at a pretty bad air bnb on the jungle side and took to eating many meals at Casa Violeta and crashing on their sun beds on the beach that were not... More

I'm not sure what all the negative comments are about staff or the property, and I was not expecting much when we booked, but we experienced something very special. We booked the Rosa Nautica room and stayed for 8 nights. The room was really large, clean and very comfortable. Only recommendation is for them to change the mattress as it... More

Our family stayed at Casa Violeta and had a wonderful time. First off the staff / team were very helpful and friendly. It was very much "old Mexico". The food in their restaurant for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner were all memorable. Even the simple dishes like fish taco's were exceptionally presented and tasted delicious! The execution of ultra fresh Italian... More

Most people go to Tulum for a true beach getaway, far away from the built up areas of Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. This is certainly what we got at Casa Violeta - it was very quiet, only a few cabanas, and a beautiful beach. Unfortunately, that is where the positive experiences end!! - the staff were generally rude and... More

This hotel looks charming on their website, but don’t get fool! When you get there the story is so different. Mario who’s the receptionist and the one that took care of my reservation is clueless.. He clearly is not trained to work in the Hospitality Industry. Mario and the rest of the staff have this weird vibe, its like they're... More

We decided to go to Casa Violeta as it met our requirements 1) minimal people 2) steps away from the beach 3) privacy 4) ability to explore local food options (no resort!). After reading reviews of Casa Violeta on TripAdvisor I was a bit nervous to stay there especially because it was my honeymoon and I did not want to... More
