My new husband stayed in room #13, and loved our honeymoon at Ahau. Great location, we could walk to incredible restaurants + bars. It was a short cab ride to the city center, cenotes, and Akumal. The beach was gorgeous and the minimal seaweed was cleaned up every morning. We took advantage of the fresh coconuts and yoga offered in... More

We stayed in the Bali Huts in September 2016. The huts themselves are very small and there's not much room for anything except the bed in the room. There is a fan above the bed but no air con. Having said that, the room is well laid out and very pretty. Additional touches such as outdoor bathroom and welcome drinks... More

If you long for beautiful sunny days surrounded by the most relaxing indigo water, the call of the jungle and impeccable food and service, then Ahau is the place for you. This coveted hotel located on the beach in Tulum was a magical experience for mind, body and soul. The staff was always attentive, informative and greeted me each day... More

Stayed last year with friends for a beach getaway and have just booked my trip with my husband and another couple to return next winter as I had such an amazing time. The grounds were like a jungle paradise with a gorgeous beach front, the rooms were romantic and relaxing, the location is great, and the staff friendly and very... More

We love this hotel. Have stayed here several times. The atmosphere is great and the rooms are exceptional. Ask for Martin he is the best! Another plus, this hotel is right across the street from the best restaurant in Tulum, Cenzontle. Ask for Ivan, he'll take great care of you.

Perfect location, perfect staff, loved the hotel and Bungalow 3 so much! Was hard to leave and will be returning as soon as possible. Walked to dinner every night. Rented bikes and rode everywhere. Can't say enough about the property, staff, location.

We just returned from 5 nights at Ahau. This was our first time in Mexico and we absolutely loved the location. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. We stayed in a ground floor ocean front suite. I booked this room because of the outdoor shower... which I found myself not using because... More

Really great location in relation to other hotels and restaurants, etc. The beach rooms are perfect, you wake up right on the beach. The vibe is very laid back, we felt very comfortable throughout our stay. Yoga was really nice in the mornings looking out over the ocean. The staff was really nice and helpful especially Leo! Thanks Ahau!
