The Mereva hotel was a super nice experience to get away from the all-inclusive resorts that my family and I tend to dislike. This time of year the seaweed was pretty bad, so we couldn’t really swim much in front of the resort. The pool and nearby cenote made up for this thankfully. The food here was very good, probably some of the best hotel food i’ve ever had. The complementary breakfasts were also a delight. While staying here, however, I think my mobile charging bank was stolen when it was charging on the wall since I forgot to bring it with me for the day. This is my only complaint so I recommend putting all valuables in the safe. The waitstaff was super helpful and helped uplift the trip. Having positive people around you helps keep you happier.
Our stay was wonderful, the staff was super helpful and sweet. Food was excellent and room was clean and comfortable. It is a little tucked away but I loved that about it, we hired a car and it was no problem they came to us and was made so easy. We definitely would go back, it was a wonderful experience.
This is the perfect spot for anyone looking to avoid the busy and noisy all-inclusive hotel experience. It is a small but beautiful place. One of the best things is their chef (Javier) who prepares delicious, fresh food with an artistic presentation. Everything we ate there during our stay was of excellent quality and beautifully presented. It makes you forget you are in a small hotel! Another highlight is the superb service. All the staff are ready and very willing to make sure the visitors are enjoying their stay. Special mention to Francisco and Miguel for always being available to help and serve us as needed. Definitely would recommend this hotel for a relaxing vacation.
We stayed in the area and ate at this restaurant 3 times. The food is flavorful, authentic and homemade. The drinks are handcrafted and one of a kind. The staff are friendly and were very accommodating to our larger group. We enjoyed the tacos so much we made it our last stop before the airport, so we could savor the flavors of the Yucatan.
We paid $365 per night for one of the beachfront rooms that are on the second floor (I think they’re better than the first floor ones because you have your own private balcony and more privacy). The hotel is small and cute but much too expensive for where it’s located (far from more popular areas of TULUM) The ride over feels a bit sketchy and the area around the hotel is empty and feels desolate. Because of the Seaweed issue in Tulum the beach was basically unusable!! They have men throughout the day working hard at clearing the seaweed from the beach but there’s just too much to handle. You can’t go into the water unless you use the pier, and when you do there are many rocks so going without protection isn’t an option. The water is much too dusty to see anything and the waves are too strong to enjoy it. Luckily they have a small lake just a few feet away from the hotel that you can go to (for $3) and snorkel / swim or Scooba dive. I suggest going later in the day when it’s not so busy. The food at the restaurant is nice but nothing to write home about, cocktails are definitely lacking in alcohol and you should request a double shot when ordering any drink. Front desk staff were incredibly sweet and helpful but restaurant staff was a bit pushy for tips and very slow with service. Definitely rent a car if you’re going to stay here, and forget about drinking and driving because it’s too far from any decent bars / restaurants / clubs. WIFI works well all the way to the beach, speeds of about 15mbps down and 5mbps up. In conclusion I would not recommend it for this price. A hotel like this (in this location) should be $150 a night, but because you can’t really use the beach I don’t see the point of coming here at all.…
I visited here with my mother and sister and was pleasantly surprised by the amazing service and cool atmosphere. We loved the music, food and overall vibe. Shoutout to our servers, Miguel, Jose Luis, and Francisco. Thank you for making our visit great!
Beautiful setting. Lively atmosphere- great food. Our restaurant manager, Jose Luis was amazing. So friendly and on point. Would recommend coming for a lovely dinner or lunch. Great decor. Comfortable and modern. Bohemian. Great vibe.
My significant other and I cannot say enough about this fabulous spot. Not only was the location ideal the service was impeccable. If you’re looking for A small boutique hotel that provides five star service in a most tranquil atmosphere this is the place for you. We have to give a big shout out to Francisco. He went above and beyond to help facilitate our wonderful experience at Mereva.
Very nice hotel with all amenities, including a good restaurant. It’s a great place if you want to be away from the hassle of Tulum, be aware that getting to town by taxi is expensive and cumbersome. We found it more cost effective to rent a car. The hotel beach itself is nice, but surrounding properties are a mixed bag.
My husband and I stayed here three years ago. A different trip this year made it possible to visit again for drinks and a snack. Jose Luis was our server, he and everyone on staff was warm and attentive. I got the Melon Slice cocktail- ancho reyes, midori, lime habanero, incredible spicy salt rim- and my husband got the Mezcalina- mezcal, ancho reyes, hibiscus, pineapple lime- and we both got seconds. The price is similar to back home, but very much worth it. Along with our cocktails we got elotes and the berry crumble dessert. Both so tasty and perfect for a little snack before dinner.
