“Fantastic Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

We rented two rooms here for two nights (we had children in tow). Rooms are spotless and great; very nicely done, feels brand new. We totally lucked into it -- we wanted to stay on the beach our last two nights, so we just drove down the main drag checking on availability, and this place had rooms. Owners are nice, and cut us a deal on the second room since they did not have a single room that could accommodate our family. Beach is gorgeous. It is pretty far south on the beach road, almost to the nature preserve, but this just means it is more remote. Highly recommend if you want to stay on the beach. Of course, you can stay on the other side of the beach road for about half of what you pay to be on the beach, so choose your poison.

We stayed here very recently for a photo shoot and absolutely loved it. The rooms were great - comfortably furnished (ceiling fans were put up when we were there), the staff very friendly and worked hard (especially the 2 little boys who helped on the beach) and the food was wonderful. Although we were working, the place was very relaxing, very photogenic and the beach is beautiful with very comfortable sunbeds. Massimo is extremely welcoming and helpful. I would really recommend the hotel for a quiet, good value, relaxing holiday - you hardly need to leave your hotel - everything is there including a high chair for a baby!

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room nearest the sea for the best views

This place is absolutely beautiful...breath taking! Small, quiet hotel in great location directly on the beach. This is 5 stars level. Everything is new and well decorated, from the entrance to the rooms and the restaurant. The room was clean, spacious, and with an incredible ocean view. My wife and I were overly impressed by the grounds and hospitality of the staff.The food is delicious, generous portions, and very reasonably priced. Really can't say enough good about this place! You can't imagine how Rosa del Viento is amazing place, you just have to go there...!!!

We were a little late in booking our stay in Tulum, so a lot of hotels in the beach area that were highly recommend were allready full. So we ended up reserving a room in Rosa del Viento,, which had rooms available, I guess because it's relatively new and quite far South.

After a long flight from Amsterdam we arrived in the hotel around 7 and we very warmly welcomed by Massimo with a cocktail. On top of that we received an upgrade to a room right on the beach, because of a late cancellation. Great start of what turned out to be a great stay. Rooms a very pretty and clean (as is the whole hotel). Service is very friendly and to top it off the hotel has a great restaurant, doing both mexican inspired and italian dishes. I would especially like to mention a great seafood pasta, that the chef made specially for us, after ordering a ravioli that was not available. I must admit that their lunches and diners are better than the breakfast, which is solid, but nothing special.

After a weeklong trip around Yucatan we came back for a second four day stay. Again very good. If we go to Yucatan again we will definitely go back to Rosa del Viento.

We didn't stay at this hotel but did eat at the restaurant 4 different times and of the four, only one could be described as excellent for food, service and value. Breakfast the first time was very, very slow, as is expected in Mexico, but others arriving after us were taken care of quickly. Turns out they were family. Dinner the first time was very good and we were eager to return. We did return, I ordered the same dish and had to return it as unedible. Tasted like fettucine soaked in dishwater and the owner explained that the flour in the pasta had soaked up all the flavor of the dish and left it tasteless so he would change the basilla he uses. My husband also had a pasta dish and his was fine so don't understand the explanation. Breakfast a few days later was loaded with salt and sent back uneaten. Would not return to this restaurant even though it is one of the few at the south end of the beach. Would rather take a drive and get something less expensive and better tasting. Sorry.

My wife and I spend several weeks per year in Tulum, and over the last 5 years have visited the majority of the beach clubs, boutique hotels, and restaurants both on the beach and in the town. We, like many, have several favorite spots, but this one has just taken over the #1 ranking for us. Marco and his business partner Massimo have created an outstanding addition to the hotel/beach clubs onTulum beach. They are located almost at the end of the beach road, just before the Sian Kaan gates. A beautiful curved wall of stone with the Rosa del Viento sign on it gives you your first hint that they did not cut corners here. Everything, from the cabanas, the restaurant, the beach furniture and palapas, are elegant and high end, while still retaining that magical charm that Tulum is famous for. The beach itself is welcoming and spectacular of course, but as Tulum has continued to grow, the element of just a little more seclusion than usual has "RELAX" written all over it!
We had a chance to see the rooms in the Cabana's, and although we didn't stay overnight, they are all brand new, bright and airy, and beautifully finished with mexican hardwood furniture, and elegant decorating.
The wait staff is friendly, and accomodating, both on the beach,and in the restaurant. We had drinks on the beach, and both lunch and dinner in the restaurant. The food was excellent, with some subtle touches that showed thought in the menu creation. Not easy to find an authentic caprese salad in Mexico! How great is that! Pastas and pizzas of course, were all excellent, but the highlight of the dinner menu is the seafood, which is caught fresh daily. (We watched the boat come in with the days catch 2 or 3 times, which is pretty entertaining in itself.) They've also got a great wine list, with a focus on Italian wines of course. The prices for drinks and lunch are on par with other similiar places on the beach, but we were pleasantly surprised to discover that their dinner pricing is actually a bit less expensive than what you normally see on the beach, especially when you get a "beach at night" atmosphere that is spectacular. Like everywhere else in Tulum, the service can sometimes take a bit longer, but the entire place has a great laid-back vibe, so just embrace it. We highly recommend checking out this new addition to Tulum beach.

We came upon this superb hotel purely by chance during our second day of a week long stay in Tulum and were immediately impressed by the beautiful grounds and the warm reception we received at the front desk. Ivana welcomed us and showed us one of the charming beachside cabanas and the rest was history; we stayed the rest of the week and were never disappointed. The restaurant is fantastic! Included with our room was a full breakfast each morning; the menu is extensive, accommodating all tastes. The wait staff is very professional and hard working; every server provides his own brand of personalized service which we found most enjoyable. The Italian owners Marco and Maximus (sp) have both done a wonderful job of creating a very special place in which to enjoy the relaxing beaches of Tulum. They both make an effort to personally assure that each guest is happy and has everything they need to make the most of their stay. If you've done any travelling at all you will realize this is rare and found only at much more expensive establishments. We plan to return to Rosa del Viento and would highly recommend their hotel.
