We were looking for quiet. A beautiful beach, A quaint town. We found two of the three Tulum is not quaint, it straddles the highway, but think 1970's in Baja. El Paraiso sits on a beautiful stretch of beach. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable, clean and air conditioned. There is satellite TV with HBO. There... More

First off, the location of El Paraiso Tulum is wonderful. We walked exactly 12 minutes (at a slow pace) to the side ( or is it back) entrance to the Tulum ruins. Also, if you walk down the beach a few minutes you can see some of the ruins right off of the beach/water ( you can't walk all the... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from a week in Tulum - we have been there before together as well as separately and between us have stayed in several properties along the beach. We booked at El Paraiso after learning that our previously booked hotel was sitting next to a noisy construction project (thank you Tripadvisor reviewers!). I had... More

The cash driver is the beach club, the rooms [10 only] are an add on. Rooms small but clean and comfortable with nice veranda but overlooking car park. Daunting list of rules and extra cost which is off-putting. Superb beach and sea. Do not bother with their bikes, they must be 15+ years old, never maintained. Better bikes available elsewhere....

My boyfriend and I chose El Paraiso for our Tulum vacation for a few reasons, mostly because it was one of the more reasonably priced hotels in the area for what it offers. Also hotel has electricity 24 hours a day, and each room has it's own private bathroom with regular plumbing. Our room had it's own porch that we... More

Located in one of the most beautiful spots of the mexican Caribbean, this place should be paradise. Unfortunately the service is really bad. They will charge you for everything. Towels to Internet. The food is not good and they have this attitude, like They don't really care if you come back. Lots of people go there since the entrance and... More

We rented the whole El Paraiso hotel (10 rooms) and the adjacent Beach Hacienda Paraiso for our wedding week. And some of our family members stayed there for an extra week, so I feel like we can review every room there. Since Tulum beach is not connected to the electrical grid, all the hotels have to generate their on power:... More

Nothing fancy but clean and friendly. Not exactly beachfront but the nicest beach we have encountered. Good food at the beach club. Lacking a bit in the customer service area but it is Mexico. Walking distance to ruins but not to town.
