We stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed every single part of it. The beach was incredible. Water was warm and clear and the sand was so soft. You were able to order food and drinks while on the beach. We also took advantage of the daily morning yoga class. It was amazing! the yoga class is not extra but the yogis accept tips. The AC works from about 6PM to 10AM which is comfortable. The location of the hotel is close to everything. We enjoyed having dinner at different restaurants outside of alaya however the price of food and drinks is pretty expensive. We paid over $140 dollars for a meal for two people at a restaurant called casa banana. The food was excellent but a little more than we expected to pay. The food in the hotel was absolutely incredible and more reasonably priced. Tulum was absolutely incredible and only a few miles from the Mayan ruins. Incredible hotel meant for peaceful relaxation, will definitely come back!

We booked our villa for one week at Casa Ganesh. There was issue for the first night and was arranged to stay at their sister property at Alaya. The arrangement was communicated to us clearly before our trip. We really enjoyed our stay at Alaya. There was a quick temperature check and hand sanitizing procedure before entering. The friendly staff helped us to carry out luggage from our car to the room. The roads here are uneven (with sands, pot holes and gravels), there’s no need to bring the good luggage because you won’t be able to roll it. We had a partial ocean view room with 2 queen beds, upstairs. Our room has a separate sitting area (room). So spacious! No tv (we don’t need it) and note that no telephone in the order to call the front desk. So you need to physically walk to front desk if you need anything. The smoke alarm was beeping upon our arrival but the staff quickly fixed the problem by changing the battery. We ended up watching sunrise in the room. We did keep our curtain closed most of the time because we could see other rooms across from ours. Everything was clean. Hand sanitizer and surface disinfectant were provided courtesy of Alaya. I even found a small jar of mosquito repellent in the bathroom (you will need this here!!). The design of the room is beautiful (with eco-friendly materials but not shabby). Water pressure in my room was good, with hot water. There’s a small cafe on site and we enjoyed our lovely healthy breakfast next day at 11:30am. In the afternoon, they set up lounge bed with umbrella on the beach for us. The water was 90F warm, clear and clean (seaweed season is over, yay!!) . The sand was soft. The Beach Club could be improved a little. We wanted a food menu and it was not provided after asking twice. We did order our drinks and were delivered to our lounge bed on the beach. It’s not posh but the view was amazing. Across the hotel, there’s a small “marketplace” with food stalls. Pharmacy is just near by. Very good location. I would stay here again for sure.

We stayed here for the first half of our trip and everything from the staff, location, cleanliness, hospitality, food, and the coziness was PERFECT. Karen and Karla are experts in whatever you desire. They can get it for you. Just ask. Everything is possible. It was my wife’s birthday and I wanted Mariachis that morning on the beach and they made it happen. And WE all know happy wife happy life.
