To begin with, I had chosen Casa Violeta because of their advertising and photos online, and was disappointed when we saw our lodging. It was supposed to be right on the beach, and it was actually at the back of the complex, right next to the road. We were on the sand, yes. It's all sand there. Beach view? No.... More

My family and I have been staying at Casa Violeta for years. It has become our 'go to' destination for our spring break. In fact, we don't even question year after year whether or not we will be returning. I can not recommend a better family holiday. We go each March with two other families with children ranging from 5... More

I was staying in a hotel down the road from Casa Violeta. Over the 2 weeks I stayed in Tulum, I went to try out the yoga they offer at 8am 3 times. Each time I went, no teacher turned up. The first and second time was okay, I understand Tulum is a very relaxed place which is why I... More

We didn't stay here, but my wife booked a Temazcal (sweat lodge) for $65 on the night of the full moon. Mario took her booking and warned her that she must pay because it gets very booked up, so she gave him her card details. When we arrived in Tulum we called in to make sure all was okay. Mario...

I am perplexed by some of the poor reviews of Casa Violeta. We loved it. The location obviously is wonderful and the beach chairs comfortable and always available because they are reserved with your room. Our room was wonderful with a view, a shady day-bed and two chairs outside and comfy beds and plenty of closet space inside. I thought... More

I have been holding off for about a month now before writing this review to avoid writing it on the whim of emotion but even so I can't shake off the feeling of disappointment. Booked a room for two 10-12 Feb for $160 USD/night + 19% tax for my only two days of vacation in a year, the room that... More

Had a really BAD experience in Casa Violeta Tulum... here it goes: Even in the relaxed Tulum environment, rural, off the beaten tracks, etc., there are tons of better alternatives than Casa Violeta. Their webpage misinforms and overcharges travelers. This is far from a "chic boutique hotel". We made 3 reservations +4 months prior to our stay... One week before... More

I wanted SO badly to love staying at Casa Violeta. It looked so beautiful and was in such a stellar location… I'm including the full story below, but the short version is this: We ended up having to break into our hotel room in the pitch black, in the middle of the night even through we called multiple times and...

Casa Violeta is a fantastic, comfortable, and beautiful place that is worth the price several times over. Visited for four nights. The beach is one of the best we've ever seen, and is perfect for swimming, walking along, or just lazing next to. The room is comfortable, clean, and romantic. The food is absolutely excellent - The pizza is pure... More
