What a great hotel. Loved the setting. Loved the atmosphere. Super service. We ate nearly every evening at the restaurant because of the food was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend it and definably would come back here in a heart beat.

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed a couple nights at Piedra Escondida and we were really impressed. The hotel was perfectly located on a quiet beach. Martin was amazing -- he was so helpful and kind. The food was good and the rooms were clean and nice. The highlight of the stay was having turtles hatch in front of the restaurant during dinner. Might have been the best moment of the 2 week trip for our kids.

We just returned from a four night stay in Tulum. I am so glad we decided to stay here. I was deciding between here and a few other places and basically this place had the best price to review ratio and had local food at their restaurant. Overall, it was beautifully situated, great energy, and had a very authentic vibe with a European touch. The room was basic, but functional. We were on the lower floor and had a nice outdoor patio that served as our "living room" right on the beach. Then off that was a sandy courtyard flanked by the other small bungalows. The small complex was anchored by the common areas and restaurant looking over a beautiful sheltered cove. Some small improvements for the room would be a separate trash can (the only trash can in the room is in the bathroom where used toilet paper needs to be deposited as the septic system in Tulum cannot handle the paper). So it's pretty gross and something you dont want to open unless you have to. I would also recommend installing some hooks on the walls in the bathroom to hang towels and clothes otherwise there is no place to put clothes in the very small bathroom. Also having a water filling station would be nice. Small individual bottles are so bad for the environment and not sustainable. Kills me every time I use a small bottle. Anyways, these are just small details. The decor and vibe is very laid back and tasteful, and unpretentious which is such a relief from chaotic and touristy Tulum. I also liked getting to know the other guests at the meals every day and sharing the beach and atmosphere. It felt a bit like a small community. Fortunately there were not so many Instagrammers which permeate Tulum. Most well-traveled Europeans and some families with well-behaved children. My favorite thing was the restaurant. Aside from eating a few meals in the Pueblo, we ate almost every meal here. The food is made with love and features great Yucatan food with amazing sauces. Four days and I still wish we had two more days to each/try everything. It is also well priced for Tulum (which is not saying much). So hats off to the Chef! My next favorite thing was the staff. They were chill but attentive and professional. I hope the owner pays them well and treats them well because they work very hard and so gracious. The beach was beautiful but unfortunately had seaweed and tons of waves. So we werent able to swim at all. However there is a calmer beach right north of the rocks which you can walk to. The hotel is located in a great area, at the beginning of the beach strip, next to some of the trendiest spots like Azulik and Sfer Ik if you are into that scene. You can walk to a dozen or so amazing boutiques and some more touristy restaurants, saving money of the crazy overpriced taxis. Overall we loved it here, and it made our trip wonderful! If you are reading this, thank you!

Can not even explain how much my friends and I LOVED this place!!!!!! Nayeli first off was amazing, gave us a tour of the property, set us up with welcome drinks and checked on us throughout our stay regarding covid testing to get back into the US. She was friendly and helpful our entire stay!!! The restaurant… OMG everything we ate was UNREAL. Words can’t even describe how good the food was and one breakfast entree is included in your stay EACH DAY!!! Each morning we went all the waiters were so helpful and pleasant. Every question I had they had the answers!!! The room was perfect… clean and quaint, and the most perfect patio with a hammock and chairs. It was the perfect way to wake up every morning, everytime we were in the room we left the door open because it was just so beautiful. The property was perfect, the best location with multiple bars and restaurants near by, but quieter than the main strip about 5 minute drive down the road. The private beach was amazing, someone each morning was cleaning up the seaweed which was a plus. They had lounge chairs, palapas, bean bags, swings, everything. I already can’t wait to come back and stay at piedra escondida!!!!! Stay here!!!

We went to this restaurant a couple of times, to eat or just drink some cocktails. Every time it was delicious, perfectly cooked and grilled ! Cocktails were also very well done and tasty Plus they never push you to buy, they let you chill and this is really relaxing, knowing all other beach club in the surroundings always push you in rude ways. Highly recommended

I had an incredible stay at Piedra Escondida! Nayeli and her team were so wonderful, making sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my short vacay! A beautiful view right on the beach! An intimate atmosphere of only 9 bungalos! Fantastic cuisine every day, and wonderful staff. My room was kept so clean and inviting every day. And any question I had about tours, visits, etc. was answered with thoughtfulness and warmth. Super recommend this space to everyone! xoxo

No complaints here just relaxing all day and all night, eating and drinking all day and all night. Now ive been to Tulum three times already, always at a different hotel. The breakfast was included, lots of places nearby to eat, its a very very small hotel and its on a small private beach that is beautiful. I will come back!
