We stopped by and had a snack at the bar. It is well designed, and staffed with friendly, helpful folks. Later, we walked the beach and found lots of shells. It was too windy for snorkeling. We think it would be fun to stay there next time we come to the Riviera Maya! Try the Ceviche!

Off the tourist beat, quiet with a dive shop and other activities. Enjoy the Caribbean without the noise and hordes of people that are in Playa, Tulum, Cancun. Great staff at all facilities. Best if you have a car but used colectivo's to travel.

Paamul is a hidden gem that a lot of people don't know about. Our two week vacation there was very relaxing and absolutely amazing. The rooms were very clean and spacious with two queen canopy beds, large shower, mini fridge and microwave. Had a lovely balcony that overlooked the ocean. It has a beautiful beach where you can snorkel out... More

This is the most beautiful place in Mexico, but more than that it is like a second home. The staff at the hotel and restaurant treat you so well. The rooms are large and immaculate, restaurant is great and the staff are beyond nice. I have come here for over 12 years and I feel so safe I bring my... More

So the place looks a bit like a hippy commune but the rooms are quite nice- large and well equipped, though our TV did not work and great little balconies. The staff is their best feature (. although we found Martin to be a little cold) and our guy who cleaned our room was excellent as was the office staff.... More

My Cousin got married on Paamul Beach on 05/21/2015. Everything was perfect! Playa del Carmen has had alot of seaweed lately, and Paamul cleaned it up nicely for the wedding ceremony. It was a small intimate wedding, with only a few hotel guests around, who happily watched the wedding take place. Some even snapped photos. It was a nice touch,... More

I spent 4 wonderful days here this week and an amazed at how perfect every second was. The minute I walked out of the Cancun airport a driver was waiting with a smile ready to take us to heaven on earth. Paamul is about an hour south of Cancun, a few miles from Playa Del Carmen but feels a world... More

Stayed there for 5 nights in April. Exactly what we expected and hoped for but bear in mind the sea is only partially accessible - lots of seaweed around which they try to clear but it comes back v quickly. Lovely beach and setting, rooms all fine and clean. Restaurant very limited in terms of good food but it is... More
