“A Slice of Paradise in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We had such an amazing experience at our stay at the The Beach in Tulum. I cannot say enough about how amazing the rooms were. Our room was on the beach and we even had our own walkway that lead directly to the beach. There was a large porch with a couch, table, and even a hammock - all with perfect views towards the ocean, beach, and palms trees. It was an amazing thing to wake up to each morning.

The beach was really nice, even though we had been there after a week of bad storms. They have large beds with pillows on the private beach, some in the shade and some in the sun. There are waiters from the restaurant who will bring you food and drinks to your bed on the beach. The pool was pretty amazing as well.

We had a wonderful experience with all the staff at the hotel. In particular, one of the waiters, Neri, went above and beyond in making our stay one of the best. All of the hotel staff was willing to go above and beyond for you, so much so that you felt like you were a part of the "hotel family".

They also have absolutely amazing food in the restaurant. We were highly impressed with the breakfast, lunch, and dinner served there. So much so, that we didn't feel the need to leave the hotel for all our meals.

We were absolutely charmed by this hotel and our stay here and definitely plan on returning in the future.

After the mass evacuation of all the hotels on the beach road I thought our vacation would be ruined. Our group went back to Playa for seemingly the entirety of our trip. But no, the very next morning we were on our way back to The Beach.
The Beach went above and beyond what almost every other hotel in the area could not do. Reopen and make our week as wonderful as it could be. Our room, the staff, ,Fernando and 185 hatchling turtles and the rest were THE CALM AFTER THE STORM.
Thank You all and see you soon.

Yes, every time I end up here I get upgrades, not sure if they do it in a regular basis, or because they already know me, whatever the reason is, this place always on top. The view from the rooms are always amazing, they keep it always clean and the service also adds to the amazing hotel. If you want great service, great drinks at their bar, and just an awesome vacation, you should come here.

We vacationed at The Beach Tulum, Sept. 21-25, right after the terrible rain storms that Tulum went through. The hotel did a good job of staying in touch with us in advance to let us know the status of things. This was the second time we have stayed at this hotel.

The staff there are great -- we are terrible with names -- but all the staff did a fantastic job even though there were standouts! We had a lot of plans for different places to eat, but with the weather and low season we ended eating most of our breakfast and lunches there at the hotel and we were never disappointed with our selections. The fish filet and fish tacos at lunch were great, as were the huevos motulenos and egg/choizo burrito at breakfast. We never ate dinner here. The bar area is very nice and the bartender was very friendly to talk to in the evenings.

The room was very comfortable and so was the bed - no issues with the air conditioning at night while we were there. Cooled off very quick! From the last time we stayed they had added curtains between the sleeping area and bathroom area, foot baths at front door and on patio and had even put a broom in the room. It was nice to be able to sweep some ourselves to keep the sand down in the room. Loved the hammock! Liked they had added a piece of furniture to the room to help with storage. Good safe in the room and plenty of hangers in closet. They do provide some bath products in the room.

Just a note, not a complaint. Our only issue we had while there was getting change for the large peso bills the ATM in town provided. We didn't expect the hotel to be a cambio for us, but it would have made it easier to tip their staff if we had more readily had change. We did hit a cambio in town to get change a couple of times, but it meant a trip to town/cab fare to somewhere to get change.

Great hotel and we will stay again.

I was seeking out a great place to surprise my wife for a romantic dinner on the beach during our honeymoon in Tulum. I contacted Ziggy's Beach Club and I received incredible non-stop service from start to finish. We were greeted warmly and taken care of by José and the staff at Ziggy's. The Chef, Miguel, prepared a wonderful four course dinner: we HIGHLY recommend the Tuna Nachos!!! The drinks were equally incredible-we had the best piña colada there-and I have to mention the spectacular beach! Everything was so good. They set up a table for two right on the sand with tiki torches and flowers surrounding us. We even were able to witness baby sea turtles being released into the ocean! It was totally perfect, they delivered on every aspect. We felt and know we were extremely blessed. They know what they're doing when it comes to romantic dinners, and they also mentioned that they always do something different for each couple! Very special memories were made!

Room Tip: We didn't stay here, but we look forward to coming back and staying someday!

Superior rooms are gorgeous. Spacious, great bathroom (shame can't flush toilet paper but it is on the Eco area) but its the direct beach access from your patio door and views from rooftop terrace that makes it so amazing.
Pool is small, more decorative than swim, but doesn't really matter.
Ziggys is nice for drinks. Breakfast is good but thought some of the nearby restaurants were better for dinner so would recommend exploring the area.
Sells itself as adults only but families were staying 2 nights we were there - hotel team said was error of wedding planner who'd booked exclusive use for the following weekend. Hotel handled complaint well but didn't appreciate having kids around which is why I've not given 5 stars.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are definitely worth it.

Do not get taken in by the promise of an adults only as like us you will probably be disappointed. The rooms of The Beach are sandwiched between ziggys and the cabañas which during our stay where over run with kids of all ages. The rooms are nice, the location is excellent but the noisy kids ruined it for us!
