My husband and I stayed here in June for 2 nights. The hotel is small and cozy with a great lounge area in the lobby right next to the bar and restaurant. Our room was very clean, and the bed comfortable. The shower/bathroom situation was different - there's no 'room' with a door on it. But, being that it was just the two of us - that was no an issue. There is no air conditioning which my husband was very concerned about, but we opened the windows (with mosquito screens) and the breeze kept us comfortable enough. Our room had a little balcony that gave great views of the ocean. The breakfast included with our room was - DELICIOUS! By far the best I've had in all my travels. Service was fast and friendly. Most of the staff spoke English well enough - and we spoke just enough Spanish to get around. This hotel is at the very beginning of the strand of hotels that make up the 'beach' side of Tulum. It's outside of Tulum pueblo. There was plenty of space to park our rental jeep - which we only needed because we were traveling around several places in Mexico. If you are just staying in Tulum - rent a BIKE. That's all you need. There are many great restaurants up and down both sides of the street. The wi-fi worked well enough to use Skype to call our son - and to check e-mail and such. There were electrical outlets in the room for charging devices - but please be conservative! This area of Tulum is off of the power grid and they make all their own electricity with solar panels or windmills. The pool is also very nice - watch out for the Iguana that lives in between some of the rock by the pool. He's pretty cool! I would say - the beach right in front of the hotel isn't great for swimming - but go down the road a bit and there's great areas for getting in the water. Overall fantastic place - would go back!
