We visited many of the restaurants and hotels in Tulum during our stay last week, and we both agreed that the food, service and architecture at Ahau were our favorite and we were very glad we selected this amazing place as our home for the week. We stayed in the master suite and it was divine. We were worried we wouldn't really make use of the patio, but it is a great place to relax after you're done being in the sand for the day. I think we spent every evening out here before and after dinner. Ahau is a pretty quiet spot at night, so if you want a little more lively scene, make sure to visit Ziggy's Beach Club. It's just south of Ahau and we had a blast here on Wednesday night (live music almost every night I think). At the Ahau restaurant, we basically ate everything, and all was good. First night I had the pepino margarita but soon switched to the stronger Dorada and drank those the rest of the week. Don't be afraid to ask for buckets of beer on the beach, or anything else you desire, as at Ahau, they pride themselves on making your stay comfortable. All of the wait staff was super friendly, and the housekeeping staff was very thorough; we even had turn down service without requesting it. The beach is incredible here, but if you're willing to go north up the beach road, check out the public beach near Mezzanine Hotel. We definitely experienced the best water of the week here.
Only negative thing I can say is to rent your bike elsewhere. We found ourselves eyeing bikes that were in better shape, and regretting just getting them from the hotel. Also, service in Tulum, in general, is slow. Don't expect to be waited on like you are in New York or LA. Just relax and prepare yourself, as it's just the speed here.
All in all, Ahau is a remarkable hotel in a remarkable place. Make sure to explore and enjoy!
