Reviewed February 7, 2013

My husband and I took the new ADO bus line that connects Belize City to Tulum and Cancun. This bus is sold as an over night bus that will land you in Tulum the next morning. Unfortunately the reality is that you arrive at 3:00 AM in a country where we know very little Spanish. We took our chances with having a taxi take us to the hotel. We felt terrible for the flustered night guard at the hotel because he knew no English and my Spanish was useless at that time of the night. But he was able to get a hold of the hotel owner (it is family run unlike some of the places around there) and he had us placed in an amazing suite until things could be sorted in the morning. They were so nice and understanding to the mix up and even gave us a large discounted price on the extra room night.

We stayed at the hotel for a week and our room was right by the pristine beach. They take a lot of pride in the hotel and are a true eco hotel. This means that they take care to move the chairs in at night for the sea turtles, and the whole complex is built in the mangroves. It's not manicured and artificial like some of the places around there so it retains a lot of charm.

Also, I found the hotel to be a great value for the location, price, etc

Took the ADO down from PDC for a day trip an d decided to stay the night with NVR being our first selection. We stayed in the Proa Al Mar unit and it was fantastic, super clean with modern finishes and a great deck. Plenty of ocean breeze kept us cool at night but is wasn't particularly hot that evening anyway. We did need bug spray but I'm certain every resort would need this as well. The breakfast was outstanding and included lots of fresh fruit, bread, juice, coffee and some little sweet toast points. Great stretch of beach just out your door.

I don't know where to begin. First, Ricardo the manager on duty during our stay went out of his was to accommodate our every request. From ice to bicycles to directions he was very very helpful. We stayed in the room closest to the beach and we could not believe how close we actually were. It was stunning! Our room was spacious and clean and had everything we needed, including an awesome hammock. Our room was cleaned everyday and the housekeepers did an excellent job. Every morning we would wake up to our beach chairs and beach bed set up for a relaxing day. They raked the beach every morning so it was spotless. Our continental breakfast was served promptly every morning and it was more than enough food! Their lobby is clean and the wifi service works perfectly. This hotel is set in the middle of a jungle so pack flash lights! It's so beautiful at night!! I have never seen so many stars. Security patrol the beach every night so we felt safe the entire time. Ramiro is located within walking distance to many restaurants and they have bikes available on a first come first serve basis. We will definitely be back and cannot say enough good things about this hotel and Tulum!

I spent 10 nights at nueva vida with my family and it was a great stay. It was my first visit to Tulum so I can't compare it with other bungalow hotels at the strip, but here's some pro's och con's!

+
-Great value for price
-Very spacious rooms (we had both beachfront and "jungle"rooms)and the bungalows are so beautiful with verandas and hammocks
-Amazing beach with very much space between so you get your privacy. (Most hotels on the beach has a smaller area) You can choose from sunchairs, comfy beachbed or hammock- heaven! A waiter is around to take your order from the restaurant and serve it to you.

-
-It does get very dark both in the rooms and the hotel area (don't forget flashlight at night!) I understand it's because they want to minimize energy consumption but after a while I started to get bother by the lack of light, especially in the bathroom.
-Everytime we got our sheets changed they had small orange stains on them (same on the curtains) I could tell the sheets were clean but I don't understand why they can't get rid of the dried in stains (or buy new sheets!).
-The staff were all very friendly and especially Ricardo (who speaks great english) helped out a lot, however, they weren' great on tips for restaurants and things to do etc, we were mainly "guided" by tripadvisor:)

Restaurant Casa Banana: the continental is good with loads of fruit and freshly made bread, also a they have a very nice yoghurt with granola. Otherwise I wasn't blown away by the food, pretty standard and a bit underseasoned I thought. But very nice atmosphere!

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms in the "jungle" is not bad at all but I would definitly recommend stayin...

We travel to Tulum about every 3 months as we have property there but no house yet. We usually stay in town but splurged for a short beach stay this time, and could not have been happier. Nueva is friendly, cozy, comfortable and kind. The service is fantastic and everyone who works at the hotel goes way out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and any concerns you have are addressed immediately. We arrived very very late at night (almost 1am) due to multiple flight cancellations and nonetheless were greeted warmly and immediately by the night time security. The price of our room was extremely reasonable and the continental breakfast was substantial and delicious. Highly recommend this lovely place for beach stays! The service at Casa Banana was not so good, but the hotel itself could not have been better.

We spent 8 nights in the Alma del Mar cabana at Nueva Vida in January and greatly enjoyed the visit. Alma del Mar is a bit rustic, but the location couldn't be beat. The deck overlooking the beach is a great place to escape the sun/wind and read or just people watch. Nueva Vida isn't for everyone. The roar of the waves may be music to some, but it can be loud. The staff at the hotel make the entire experience. They are courteous and professional. We did notice additional security patrolling the beach every night and weren't sure if that was normal or not. The hotel has an excellent restaurant on site and is close to several other dining options. It is some distance from the Tulum Beach shopping area, but it is easy to get a cab or rent a bike. We would definitely stay at Nueva Vida again.

Chose this hotel because of it's high family rating on TripAdvisor and the stay surpassed my expectations. We used almost all the amenities from breakfast to evening social (with expensive/tasty barbeque!) Rustic design of lobby, restaurant area was warm and inviting. The beach was amazing and surprisingly quiet. Also was surprised how easy it was to get to other restaurants and bars on the beach and even downtown Tulum. Would definitely stay again!!
