Teetotum Hotel, along with the owner Richard, Dali & crew is half the reason we visit Tulum each year! The rooms are perfect; always super clean, spacious, mini fridge, a/c, etc. Fridge is stocked daily with a couple of cokes and bottles of water which is so nice. Showers are fresh water which is worthy of note, as many of... More

This was our second visit to Tulum and a much-anticipated return visit to the Teetotum. It's such a special spot because it feels more like a home away from home than an overwhelming hotel. Every person that works there makes you feel welcome and are so kind. Richard is a most-welcoming host who is really your best person to ask... More

This boutique hotel was perfect as we had 4 couples traveling and had the little place to ourselves. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool was the perfect end to the day. The cafe was delicious and the chef even prepared a delicious dinner after a day of fishing. The hotel is perfectly situated between the main strip in town and... More

We loved this little hotel! Richard, the owner, was so welcoming and informative and it turns out my husband used to hang out at his skate shop in Philly! Small world..... Perfectly located between town and the beach resorts and with free bicycles to get betwixt the two. If luxury eco-resorts aren't quite your style I highly recommend this little... More

Just arrived back to NY after an amazing stay at teetotum. The room and grounds are clean and charming, the sheets and towels are unbelievably soft, and the decor is chic and cozy. Richard is a fantastic host and the location is perfect for beach or town tulum activities. With the music piped in perfectly and the sunny roof deck... More

Just came back from a second stay at Teetottum and it was just as good as the first. I'll start with the pros: - Great hot showers with good pressure for Tulum standards. Clean. Very comfortable big bed and room has AC or fan but I didn't use either because it was a bit chilly. Big beach towels. Cleaning service... More

My husband and I had the good fortune to spend a week at Teetotum before Christmas. It was our first time veering away from the All Inclusives the Caribbean is known for. This was a welcome change. This lovely little hotel felt like home to us. Richard is a most welcoming host and all around interesting individual. We (my husband... More

I cannot get over how comfortable the rooms at this hotel are! I stayed at Papaya Playa for a few days and while beautiful I was never fully comfortable in the rooms.

We really enjoyed staying at Teetotum. The food was awesome, we had some of the best meals during our trip at Teetotum. We like the relaxed vibe.... it was nice to hang out in the evenings and drink margaritas. We also liked the short walk into town, as well as a quick drive or bike to the beach.

This is a great place to stay. The staff is friendly and make you feel at home. Richard makes you feel like a friend you had for a long time. It is a very low key place, not a resort. Very Affordable but with taste. My taste ranges from large hotels to small boutiques and this is is a great... More
