We’ve stayed at Don Diego two years in a row: October 2016 and 2017. We love this place, the food is great, the grounds are awesome, the staff is friendly, and the price is right. We live Tulum, we love Don Diego de la Selva and we will definitely be back.

Well what can I say? You forgot to say that it was the 25th of December, and that you found another hotel right away, I was really surprised that you could find a room at this super high season in Tulum. I really tried to stay professional, but when I saw that there was no mosquito in your room and that there was no doubt that all you wanted was a refund and go to the other hotel you had booked, well sorry but I decided not to cooperate. Your reservation was a non-refundable stay, you are the ones who were being rude with us.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. The small hotel made us feel like we were away from the city even though we were only a few blocks from downtown. Bathrooms were always clean functioning and private. Great morning coffee and breakfast with fresh mellon juice as a unique treat.
