“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We got married at Be Tulum in November and it was amazing! From arrival to departure, every last detail was well attended to--actually anticipated is probably more accurate--for not only us but also our guests. Be Tulum combines the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel while at the same time staying true to the minimalist ethos that make Tulum such a special place to visit. Every member of the staff provided unbelievable service. Reception, restaurant, cleaning and management could not have been more friendly and professional. Oh yeah, and by the way the food is awesome--even for foodies like us--and the beach stands out as especially beautiful on a long stretch of pristine beach. There are less expensive hotels, however at Be Tulum you get much more than a place to hang your hat at the end of the day you get to experience a slice of paridise. If you chose Be Tulum for any occasion--weekend getaway, retreat, honeymoon, wedding or other special event--you will not be disappointed.

After getting engaged in Tulum in February, we looked at several potential venues in Tulum for our wedding. My wife is incredibly detail oriented and it was important to her that our wedding venue was not only beautiful but also clean and professionally run. Be Tulum exceeded both of our expectations. We wanted to provide the best experience possible for our guests representing a spectrum from frugal types to the most discerning travelers accustomed to luxury. Everyone who attended had glowing praise for Be Tulum, and left on a first name basis with many of the staff. Cesar and Angel in the restaurant, Daniella with the wedding planning and Carolina dutifully overseeing everything--we can not thank you enough for our dream wedding and a phenomenal vacation for us and our guests! Nos vemos pronto!

Absolute paradise in every way. The perfect start to our honeymoon, just wish we stayed for longer! Seriously stay here. We were in room 20, with the rooftop pool, it's the best room in the resort, do your best to be in it :)

We really loved Be Tulum. It's the perfect location for a relaxed beach vacation. The hotel is rather small which means that the very friendly staff actually remembers your name and room number after only one day. The beach is just perfect and the cozy sun beds allow you to comfortably spend the whole day on the beach. The quality of the restaurant was also very good.

Room Tip: Jungle Suits are perfectly fine since they are also very close to the beach. The private pools are n...

My husband and I spent four days at the Be Tulum in December. It was the perfect vacation! The hotel is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a jungle suite on the second floor and adored our room. It was very spacious with indoor and outdoor showers as well as a big jacuzzi tub in the room. This hotel is spectacular and the beach is really amazing. They have fantastic beds on the beach and there is plenty of room for each hotel guest to have their own bed or chair on the beach -- no racing down to secure one early in the morning. The food and drinks are also excellent and the pool is small but beautiful!
I would recommend renting a car so that you can drive from the BE to all the great restaurants in Tulum (definitely try Hartwood).
The service at the hotel was exceptional. It is a calm resort where they really leave you to yourself unless you need assistance...which is nice!
Note: there is wifi in the rooms but not on the beach...although you really shouldn't be working while you are there anyway!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are best. You don't need one with a personal pool because most are in the sh...

Be is a wonderful small resort with an amazing beach and excellent service. The perfect place to relax and unwind. Staff is friendly and accommodating, food is above par and the beach beds are so relaxing and the view so incredible, it's hard to think about doing anything other than being on the beach.

Everyone was super nice, the food was great, the beach was great, the beach loungers were great and super comfortable... rooms were large and the overall architecture of the place is really very impressing.

Expensive, but well worth it. Very relaxing. By brother had his wedding there and the staff did an amazing job accommodating and putting up with our outrageous pool party. The rooms are amazing, each having either a pool or jacuzzi, indoor AND outdoor showers and plenty of open space. The rooms a minimalist, which I enjoy. We had a fresh fruit and good coffee for breakfast, cheviche and guacamole and beer for lunch. Tulum has many incredible restaurants and nightlife which we explored every night. The beach and ocean are sublime. I was stressed about the price, but quickly forgot about that. I'll be back.

Room Tip: The Spa is the ocean. The fitness center is the beach.
