We were lucky to have a room on the beach side as I would not be happy if it had been on the road.
We had a terrace with a hammock (although it was the cheapest type and not very comfortable).
I enjoyed our stay there, however,being 'eco' and 'boutique' does have its down sides.
There is an attractive shelving unit to put your clothes on, (no wardrobe), if you want anything hung up, I drapped my clothes over the low wooden beams. The security is poor, one of the windows had no lock on it, there is no safe.However, we felt safe there. The smell coming up from the unfixed shower drain coming straight up from the septic tank was disgusting, so I covered it with a cloth to try to smother it a bit. The room is open plan, so you have to send your partner onto the terrace is you want to use the toilet if your are concerned about this! We also drapped a towel over a beam in the shower as the window from the hall meant you could be exposed, if it bothers you, I didnt want to shock anyone!
There is only one power point and low level lighting as it is run on solar energy.
Although we enjoyed our stay it is heavily overpriced, especially as the bed had a plastic mattress cover on it, which made it even hotter at night and the sheets were old and threadbare.
None of our other 5 hotel stays had plastic mattress covers on the beds.
The staff were the least friendly out of our stay in Mexico, although as said before, Kate was lovely. Even though there are lots of negatives, this didnt spoil our stay as these didnt have a big impact on us,as we were coming towards the end of a great 2 weeks in Mexico and had come back to Tulum as we loved it there, although it may bother others and perhaps the hotel could try to rectify these issues.
It is a great location and a beautiful looking hotel, and alternative to wood and straw cabanas.
