The nine or so kilometers of the Tulum strip is wonderfully devoid of corporate hotels and restaurants, but offers a very considerable range of options from basic and grungy (Camp Chavez) to elite and perfectionist (Encantada). My partner and I were not going to consider anything over $100 a night, let alone the $400+ options, and wouldn't have wanted an... More

I have been to many different budget places in Tulum, but this one was by far the most special and most friendly! It’s magical! The few cabanas are very cute and clean. The whole place is very well taken care of. You are staying next to your own personal cenote to take your morning swim in ! Then, if you... More

We just visited this cabanas and with all my heart it's the best most relaxing and friendly place on earth. It is the place for those who truly wants to run away from all the worries, work, internet, and just be with the nature. Andrea, Leo, and Diego are so friendly and helpful. They make you feel like you all... More

A magical place! where you can enjoy nature, where you can see an amazing variety of different tropical animals, and there is a beautiful cenote where you can swim, kayak and snorkel. The staff treats you like family, a place for resting and a great experience.

At the end of the zona hotelera, Xbalamque offers low budget cosy cabanas with a nice bed and mosquitos net. Shared kitchen (without mosquitos net) where you can assist to robberies from raccoones. I love those animals! Wifi and electricity from 5pm to 2am only. Shared bathrooms and showers. 50m from the beach-probably one of the best in the area.... More

We are Tulum junkies and had spent a little time at Xbalamque a couple of years ago when staying across the road. So this year when it came time to book, we decidied on Xbalamque knowing it would be near our favorite stretch of beach and would be more economical during the high tourist season for the week we intended...

Great place with authentic cabanas and mosquito netting surrounding the beds. Traveling alone, I spent time eating and hanging out with other guests and Legna, the manager, around an outside table. The other guests were musicians and adventurers from around the world and great company. It was a great way for me to meet travelers from all over. We developed... More

We were excited about the description of this place that we found online (and in Rough Guides) - clean and friendly; hippy atmosphere; vegetarian food. But we were disappointed. The staff were miserabe, cranky and unhelpful. Breakfast was not actually included as no one was up before 9am. The room was dirty, and the caretaker kept trying to charge us... More
