We stayed in a partial view room at Ocho for four days at the end of September. We had a great view of the ocean and loved the small balcony attached to our room. The beach was right outside the door of our room, which was incredible! Our room was kept very clean and had a safe and a table and chairs which came in handy. We rented a car (which is a very good idea in Tulum) and never had a problem with parking. We found all of the staff to be friendly and welcoming. Alex, in particular, was very accomodating. We had a couple of meals in the restaurant and they were good- although we never made it in time for the complimentary breakfast. (the free breakfast was not strongly advertised! Make sure to ask for it if you want it!) Our room was pretty small, but worked well for us as we mostly enjoyed the gorgeous beaches! The showers use a mix of salt and fresh water and that takes a little getting used to. We spent a lot of time walking up and down the beautiful beach and were able to check out the other resorts, as they are stacked very close to each other. From what we saw, we were very happy that we were staying at Ocho. It may be slightly more expensive than some of the other resorts, but the service and quality are worth it!
