We have stayed at Don Diego for many years as part of our scuba diving excursions to Xcalak. Charlie and Stefan continue to offer a unique boutique hotel experience in an unbelievably beautiful garden setting away from the crowded areas of Tulum. We love to sit by the pool and enjoy a margarita - no need to go anywhere else 🦋🌴🌺

A French couple runs this place and they do a very good job. Rooms are nice and well equipped, there is a restaurant which has some very good food. The swimming pool offers you a nice cool down after a hot day. The restaurant is not close to the sea but just a short drive.

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.

Keep away from this hotel! The main door in our room, had many big gaps, which means the door couldn’t close fully..! Room was full of mosquitoes! It’s a basic need that a room can be fully closed, The owner was so disrespectful and rude, he was not at all professional. We tried to ask for a new room, because of cause we didn’t want that, and I’m pregnant so I truly don’t want do sleep with mosquito spray on. The didn’t had another room, so actually after 20 min check in, we wanted to check out because this was not acceptable at all! We asked for fully refund, because we didn’t wanted to stay and didn’t even stay for more than 20 min, but the owner almost laughed at us and told we shouldn’t come to Mexico if we were afraid of mosquitos!!! He told us we could put our clothes to fill the gaps!!!!?? Is that a joke??? Over all he was rude, not at all understanding, disrespectful, arrogant and service minded. Will never NEVER recommend this hotel! Stay away!

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.
