Property's Favorite Review
My husband and I have had the pleasure of staying at Mahayana (and the sister property, Zorba) a few times. We've stayed in the larger homes like Casa de las Palmas (extraordinary) and the largest home on Zorba's property... this trip being that it was just the two of us we decided to spend a few nights in the Eclectic Treehouse and a few nights in Casa Gaia. Both were phenomenal in different ways. FIRST, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO WORK REMOTELY FROM TULUM BEACH THERE SIMPLY IS NO BETTER OPTION. We spent weeks looking into wifi reliability, speed, etc. as we are both working tech professionals who spend all day on Zoom meetings. The wifi was not only incredibly reliable the entire week but it was legitimately faster than our apartment in San Francisco -- I don't even know how this is possible! Have no fear if you need to work from paradise -- Mahayana clearly made a great investment in upgrading to the best internet available on the beach. This is worth the price alone. Eclectic Treehouse - great for travelers on a bit of a budget but who want to stay on the beach and close to the best restaurants and bars in Tulum. The treehouse is a mix between a tiny home and a beach treehouse bungalow. We were obsessed with it -- has everything you'd need for 2 people and the price simply cannot be beat. Casa Gaia -- where do I even begin... my husband and I have traveled all over the world (50 countries and counting) and I can confidently say that Casa Gaia is one of, if not the most beautiful place I've ever stayed. The architecture, amenities, and VIEW are unreal. Worth every damn penny. Finally, the staff at Mahayana from the owner to the manager to the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance staff are incredibly warm, welcoming, and helpful. We always feel like family when we stay with them -- it's a 5 star experience. If you're a couple or a group looking for the absolute best that Tulum has to offer... if you want to feel like royalty in some of the most beautiful homes on the planet within the gorgeous scenery of Tulum's beach / jungle I cannot urge you enough to book at Mahayana (or Zorba). It will be one of the best vacations of your life.

Thank you so much for the kind review - our hearts are bursting with gratitude. After hosting your magical wedding at our sister property (Zorba Tulum) it was our pleasure to share our smaller Mahayana property with you for your anniversary stay. Poor wifi is an issue along the beach in Tulum so now you know you can stay at Mahayana with confidence if you need to stay connected. Happy travels and best wishes from all of us at Mahayana. We hope you find your way back to us again soon!

Their villas feel so luxurious and clean, all the staff members were so nice, the pool is amazing and the place is incredibly quiet at night! Definitely hidden a gem in Tulum beach, also they have fiber optic wifi which is incredibly fast and rare for a hotel in Tulum!

Thank you for the kind review! We recently secured fast fiber optic wifi so our guests can easily stay connected during their stay. Fast wifi is rare on the beach but we understand fast wifi speeds actually allow our guests to relax more knowing they can connect when needed. We have a dedicated staff and housekeeping team so all our guests feel safe and well cared for. We hope to host you again soon on the beach!

Our visit to Tulum was made whole by our stay in the Treehouse at Mahayana. Not only is the location perfect -- you're a short walk from the beach, restaurants, bars, and much more -- but the staff is accommodating and friendly. Chabely and Angel were quick to answer our questions and help us in any way they could. Housekeeping did a remarkable job keeping the Treehouse clean and stocked with fresh towels. They even provided a brand new hair dryer for my wife. :) Know that nearby bars play loud music into the early hours of the morning, and the Treehouse is nestled in nature, so if you're a light sleeper or you mind the sounds of cars and bars, you might consider staying in one of the Villas rather than the Treehouse. The beach area is clean with plenty of chairs for laying out. Mahayana has security 24/7 so you can be confident that the grounds are safe and secure. We are looking for our next stay at Mahayana and would recommend this beach haven to anyone visiting Tulum!

Thank you for staying with us at Mahayana! The Treehouse is cute but you do hear the sounds of the neighbourhood which include late music and urban sounds. If you are sound sensitive our Casa Gaia house right by the sea or any of the bigger Villas at Mahayana offer a more peaceful stay. No matter which option you choose at Mahayana all guests enjoy private beachfront, the Mahayana amenities, and care and attention from our friendly staff. We hope you return to Mahayana again soon!
