Casa Violeta was a wonderful place to spend a week relaxing - the rooms were beautifully decorated, the yoga fantastic, delicious freshly baked breakfasts with homemade tropical jam, brilliant sun beds allocated by room and amazing pizza. The staff were really helpful and laid back and the located was perfect (best part of the beach) However - when they say... More

I've learned to get out of the Pacific Northwest every year towards the end of January, to chase the sun. Love it here, but just need a warm, sunny place to reset my body and reacquaint myself with that wonderful orb in the sky. I've been to Maui (several times, both sides of the island), Florida (Destin area), the big... More

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
