Stayed in the Posada Los Mapachen in a double room. The room, whole property and owner are fantastic. Unfortunately we had a tight schedule and stayed only for 1 night - but I would have loved to stay longer. The place is located outside Tulum town on the highway to Cancun - right across the road to Tulum ruins. The... More

Upon arrival the owner of the Posada, Chelo gave us a warm welcome and beckoned us in. She is a peoud lady and has her rules. She requested to hold our passports during the stay, which we received back on checkout no problems. She requests to have our bags fumegated to ensure no contamination of the accommodation, which to us... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at PLM for a week and we had the best time. Chelo, the owner was amazing and together with her sons and animals she runs this place great. Always clean, familiar and cozy. I can't say anything bad about this place. Her breakfasts was great as well!

You might think its in the middle of nowhere but that is so far from the truth. With the bikes that is included in the price you have only 10 minutes if you are an athlete to town and around 15 minutes if you are like us - on holiday :) It's also close to the ruins, and not far... More

Once we have got to the place, Chelo the owner sprayed our bags with an anti-bug spray. Than we entered to her office for check-in, and there were signs telling that food isn't allowed in the rooms, otherwise rats and cockroaches will come visit you. Meanwhile we had to fill up some papers and suddenly I saw she taking our... More

We spent two nights here in August 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Not only was the accommodation itself really clean and a SUPER cool concept, but the warmth and hospitality of the owner, Chelo, is what really made this stay for us. She was such a genuinely sweet person, and she made amazing breakfast for us both days...we were... More

We loved staying with Chelo and her lovely animals (thoroughly enjoyed playing with Wendy). Much love goes into running this B&B. Breakfasts were exceptional and rooms comfy. Whilst a little way out of town, you are provided with bikes and head torches (which are useful at night). We spent much time exploring the town, cenotes and ruins. Chelo truly cares... More

This place was a diamond in the rough. Chelo was the most incredible, friendly, warm host who made us feel totally at ease. The wooden huts are well made and safe - just be aware that there's no air con so it can get pretty hot during the night. The breakfast is the best bit- fresh fruit, cake with cooked... More

Such a great vibe - the host Chelo and her two sons provide a home style hostel experience that is uniquely mexican. Standouts include the Amazing home cooked breakfasts - and bikes included with your stay! The rooms are simple, clean and set out so you still retain your privacy. Chelo provides awesome local advice to help you make the... More

I was on a trip with my boyfriend for two days and we were really sad we couldn't stay longer! Chelo has lots of rules but she treated us just like family. Breakfast was wonderful, the place is like paradise and very quiet and romantic :)
