I stayed in Lu's house in Tulum and it was amazing, the location is perfect for Tulum, you are in the center of the beach so you can get to the restaurants either south or north super easily. The staff is amazing on the property, I never saw them but when I needed anything, they seemed to magically appear. The...

The Villa was perfectly located with close access to everything we could possibly need! This was our first trip to Tulum, didn't really know what to expect and couldn't have landed in a more perfect spot. The rooms were spacious, and comfortable and had fans that kept us plenty cool at night. When there was an issue with the hot...

I rented Luu's private villa for my 40th in October. I've been to tulum 8 visits and this wasn't far the loveliest accommodation I've had. Thoughtful decorations, huge rooms, a communal dining table and full kitchen. Maid came everyday. The most special part though was the beautiful back deck on your private little section of beach. Really a slice of...

We stayed two nights (prepaided) and would have left earlier. No electricity or water in the rooms and our roommates were crabs and cockroaches. The receptionist didnt understand any english and didnt provide any service. No meals, drinks or snacks were avaiable and it was not allowed to bring your own...???? Overly priced - seemed abandonded.

The hotel is great, the owner a doll. No complaints and would go there again, BUT my wife contracted Hepatitus A probably from swimming in the ocean, which this year has the odor of human waste periodically. This has NOTHING to do with Retiro Maya Hotel, but everything to do with the whole stretch of beach at Tulum. Cannot go...

I too stayed here during the yoga retreat in March. I was trepidatious because of the reviews here, but because I was with a group I had no control of where we were staying. Negative review are spot on. The owner is a flat out liar and tried to get extra money from the group claiming we needed to make...

Accommodation is basic and worth a few light and energy limitations. Perhaps more basic and limited than other eco resorts in the area. It's part of the beach has much less seaweed than other parts of the beach - so a great plus. All the cabanas are very close to the beach. If you are not expecting or paying for...

Nice small hotel, quite at night and the bathroom without roof is great. The best thing were the cat and dog living in the hotel. Luna, the dog, could be borrowed for a walk. The cocktails at the beach bar were quite expensive, as almost everywhere in Tulum, and unfortunately not woth it. Unfortunately the restaurant is closed now.

I've read the other reviews, and I'm just confused. The only way I think anyone wouldn't think this place is perfect is if they were expecting a first class hotel. But look at the price - this isn't a first class hotel. But it gets five stars in my book for what it is: simple beach cabana; basic room with...

A group of us rented the largest cabana/house here, and it was perfect for us. The accommodation was simple but perfectly adequate and clean, with a great location and direct access to the beach. It was an easy walk to plenty of restaurants and bars. Retiro Maya is not fancy, but great for a relaxed beach holiday. Everyone was helpful...
