Shambala is full of love. Everyone who works there is kind and approachable and very helpful. The healthy food is delicious and full of color. The location is special. The cabanas are unique and you really live on the beach, with all the weather and sea creatures! Watercraft is available, a cool infinity pool, and everyone walking by on the beach stops to take in the magic of this place. Tulum has changed a lot since I was there 20 years ago. Upon leaving Shambala, it’s bougie out there and clubs and luxury abound. Yes, you can hear the clubs, feel the base at night. I preferred to stay within the loving vibes of Shambala and take it all in. I’d love to return again, especially with #soulfullwellnesscolorado

Incredible service and hospitality!! Spectacular grounds!!! Wow, wow wow is all I can say!!! This beautiful resort is right on the beach and as far as I know has the only beach front pool in Tulum This incredible hotel is set right in the heart of Action! The owner Roberto and the staff were incredibly welcoming, warm, kind and helpful and attended to my every need and desire! What I love about this place is that you get a true authentic beach hut vibe with a modern internal design and a beautiful garden too. It’s is paradise and I can’t wait to go back there!!!!

You will never get a better experience than you will find during your stay at Shambala Petit. There are so many thoughtful touches around this resort that show just how much they care about making your experience effortless. This place offers tranquility and privacy while still providing exclusive access to the best beach spot on Tulum beach. The owner Roberto is the nicest man you will ever work with and has lived here for over 20 years so he knows all of the best spots to eat, drink, shop, and party. The staff is all very friendly and accommodating. The best part is the breakfast every morning where everyone comes and shares a meal while getting to know one another. You will not be disappointed when you choose to stay at Shambala Petit.

We rented all the rooms at Shambala for our wedding party in Tulum. It made our wedding experience amazing! The location is perfect in the beach zone. The rooms are authentic but really pretty. The grounds and the pool are what make the hotel a perfect spot. It's the only hotel with a beachfront pool. Roberto and his team helped organize food and drinks throughout the weekend so it felt like a mini resort. We loved our stay!

Booked 6 nights at Shambala expecting this to be a "rustic" experience. Arrived and got my room, ok more of a hut. Air conditioning was marginal due to the large 2" gaps around the doors and other misc. air leaks. Was ok with that. Went into the bathroom, no hot water. It was hot & humid, so I was ok with that. Can't drink the water here and no bottled water provided. Was not ok with this and had to go down the beach to a restaurant to purchase one. Was extremely tired from traveling all day so went to sleep at 8:30pm. Little did I know there was a "beach club" next door. Music started at 9:30 and went all night. Ear splitting volume and massive bass. Painfully loud-and I'm a guitar player who was in many rock bands in the 80's & 90's! Needless to say, I left the next morning. Still fighting to get the other 5 nights $ back and to top it off, I got double billed, once by the hotel and once by Booking.com. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!
