My reason for the 4 star is the uniqueness and the amazing art collection exhibited in the hotel, not necessarily the rooms, service, and definitely not the value for what you pay. Overall else it’s would be a 3 to 3.5 star! It is one of those hotels where you cannot see the room before deciding if you want to live there and pay that much. Silly in my view, as we argued and stuck it out, so managed to see the hotel and room, and my friends were keen to stay at $ 1200 a night! Left solely to me definitely not. I do realise that is is not every day that you get to stay in a hotel the that feels like a giant art gallery, but there are other ways to enjoy the property apart from living there which I would opt for next time round. The rooms are spacious, with a plush look, red thick velvet curtains et all, and the shower is the best thing about the room, powerful with pressure that few hotel showers have. However, rooms looks a bit dated and surely need some sprucing up. And are they 1200 dollar rooms, not on my opinion! There are rooms on the ground floor and a room just above it, so ours was above overlooking the pool echo but was nice I think, preferred it to being on the ground. We were three adults so the extra person sleeps on the L shaped sofa, on the protruding shorter part of the L as the sofa is placed horizontally,not the most comfortable. The pictures of the rooms on trip advisor look much nicer than the room actually, probably older pictures when the Romans were newer. Beach was full of seaweed so we didn’t really is it, pool is nice, especially the underground one. Breakfast was ala carte, included, but you order whatever you want from the menu. The salmon bagel was to die for. The Japanese restaurant Ambrosia has rear food, better than most restaurant ours wise the hotel I thought. Tuna salad was excellent. Tulum is incredibly expensive, and casa Malca follows that suit, and gets away for 2 reasons, the intrigue value of being Pablo Escobar’s former abode, and the incredible art collected and displayed by the owner, an avid art collector Lio Malca. I for one was super proud of the coveted collection of top Indian artists like Ravinder Reddy, Subodh Gupta and Sunil Gawde side by side with a Keith Herring and a Yue Min Jun! Made my chest swell with pride! If you do not want to spend copious amounts to stay in the better luxury properties like Casa Malca, there is a Day pass or beach club concept. Tulum beach clubs cost about($50-200 USD) to enter because they have a food/beverage “minimum spend.” This basically means you’re pre-paying a certain percentage of your tab — and you’re allowed to use the resort facilities — so think of the entrance cost as a down payment on food and drinks. This way you can enjoy the property like you are staying there for the entire day, 10-6pm I think., and that’s as good as staying there for a fraction of the cost. Yes the design concept and art collection is fabulous, but this way you have access to it. I missed the opportunity but I believe the photo shoot is very well worth it. We didn’t use the spa so can’t comment. Tulum is a sort of eco green zone, so the kind of plush and luxury one experiences in south East Asian hotels like Thailand, Vietnam etc for a fraction of the price don’t exist here even for $ 1200! So to my mind hard to get the value for what your are paying out. Service staff is good, but Management could be better. It is at the end of the hotel zone but that honestly didn’t bother us as it’s a bit extra walk and hardly makes a difference in a cab or car When the seaweed issue recedes, am sure the beach is spectacular as for most of the Yucatan peninsula. If economics are just not in question then definitely maybe worth staying for few nights but don’t expect to get exemplary attention or service or luxury for the price.

Have you ever seen those pictures in magazines or ads where the beach looks perfect the waves look perfect the sand is white and looks soft to the touch? This place is it! Casa Malca is a gem. We found this site picturesque. This was an old mansion belonging to Pablo Escobar and it is now a boutique hotel. The service is phenomenal. The daybeds don’t require umbrellas as there are palm trees that give you partial shade from the sun. It ain’t cheap but it’s well worth it. Travel here and you will remember it for a lifetime.

Hotel was nice and clean but check in was 3pm and we arrived at 2:30pm. They made us wait until 630pm to check in to our room with all our luggage sitting in the blistering heat. They were doing construction the entire stay we were there and heard banging upstairs all the time. We had plans to do things the first day and had to cancel because it took them all day to get a room we reserved 3 months ago. Also had an ocean front master suite, since they were doing construction we didn’t have a bed or chair outside our room like all the others had. After complaining to the manager he said he will see what he can do. Come to check out they charged full price for the entire stay and even charged us the candy we took from the mini bar. You would think when paying 1500.00 a night, they be a little more accommodating and gave back something towards the bill. We also saw another couple very frustrated for waiting on a room to check in also and they ended up going to another hotel. I think betulum will be the next choice if we come back here. You can just walk over from the beach and use the same amenities as well.

Casa Malca is a very nice hotel in Tulum, the hotel has a lot of art and you get the feeling that you are in New York City. The room was very nice, big and quiet. During our stay we were very well and kindly helped by Abraham, he provided us with breakfast every morning and told beautiful stories about Tulum. He made our stay extra great!

The worst hotel in Tulum. Getting there take ages in traffic. Service is horrible and overpriced. There are not available options that are suppose to be included. When I started to do deep research about the venue I came across informations that the service is not treated and payed properly. DON'T GO THERE!

Thank you for your comments and raiting. We are very sorry to read your comments, Being at the end of the hotel zone we have one of the quietest and least crowded beaches in Tulum, ideal for relaxing. In fact you have to walk the entire avenue to get to Casa Malca and that implies some traffic since Tulum is a very touristy area but when you arrive at Casa Malca you will find a place full of peace and tranquility. Please let us know what happened with the service, because if you read the comments on all our platforms, the service of our hotel is very well qualified by most of the guests. Please send me an email to me: calidad@casamalca.com to see how we can compensate for this situation. Thank you in advance. Juan Arroyo Guest Service Quality Manager
