We were looking for a quiet, relaxing place we could really rest. We found it!
Comments on tripadvisor are true. Cleanliness, professionalism of staff, buffet impeccable, service cart to the beach almost no waiting. Restaurants in Sian Ka'an are higher than other restaurants (Tulum, Akumal and Coba). I agreed with tiloupmontreal (feb 7, 2013).
Room: We had room 3323. Extremely quiet, what we wanted! five minutes walk from the lobby
Restaurant :I used the restaurant booking service via the email address on their website. Thank you, Brisa for its effectiveness reservation, we had a different restaurant every night of our stay.
The Sian Ka'an is very quiet. The age of the couples ranged from 20 to 70 years. If you want a place to sleep during the day at the pool, go to the sushi bar pool (pool villas 27-36). If you want a little activity, go to the snack bar Cenote (pool villas 24, 25, 26, 14, 12 and 11). If you would like more acitivity and partying, go to the Coba, Tulum and Akulam Hotel. It's great to have access to multiple location. You can choose what ever your mood.
Gym (Tao Wellness): a place to discover! A very small gym, two treadmills, two bikes, one elliptical. Two pools for length, a few yoga classes, zumba, ... The place is worth the trip for your eyes.The only negative point, is the small places for bodybuilding and cardiovascular exercices. In this place, 5 people is a crowd !
The ruins of Tulum: we were two couples, we chose not to take the tour agency or hotel.
For $ 70 USD, it is possible to take a taxi for the day towards the ruins of Tulum. Paco, our driver took us to the ruins, he waited for our return (two hours), to bring us to a lovely restaurant on the beach. We enjoyed the beach and a meal until 16h. Paco waiting to take us back, to our hotel.The cost of entrance to the ruins of Tulum is $ 6 usd per person. The cost of a taxi for a full day (10am to 4pm) is about $ 70 usd. Total cost for 4 people, $ 94 usd plus a tip.It was possible to obtain better price if you leave the hotel and you asked for a taxi near the road.
We paid 1550$ for a week. I would not paid more than 2000$
Room at the Sushi pool are very quiet, day and night. (villa 27 to 36).
