“Perfect place to stay in Tulum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2011

Xibalba was the first dive shop we checked out and decided to sign up right away due to the incredibly resourceful and friendly staff. The facilities were spotless and modern. My husband dove the caverns for 4 days and is completely hooked on the idea of returning to do his cave diving certification. I'm 5 months pregnant so couldn't dive but was welcomed amongst the diving community. The hotel was impeccable - super modern and comfortable with extra large rooms. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Definitely one of the highlights of our 3 week tour around the Yucatan Peninsula - highly recommend!

We were very comfortable in the nice room - we had great breakfasts with Tomas, and Richie our dive master was incredible with his safety and tours of 3 mind blowing cenote dives!!!

Xibalba Hotel and Dive Center in Tulum is the perfect spot for a fantastic holiday, whether you want to relax at the beach, explore the many sights of Mexico or go diving.
I absolutely love this small, cozy hotel. Staff is helpful and smiling, rooms are big and confortable and the atmosphere is relaxed.
I went there with friends and we had an unforgetable holiday. Will recommend this hotel to everyone!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere at the hotel was great, nice big rooms, great pool and nice terrace to enjoy a beer or drink in the evening with other guests.
I really recommend their dive center. Their instructors really know what they are talking about.

Thanks for a great vacation

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Xibalba hotel for three nights. I had corresponded with Aneke, a hotel owner, over email prior to coming. She was very friendly and quick to respond to my many questions. My boyfriend was doing an online PADI open water course, and we went there to get him the final pool and open dive certification. I also took a refresher course. Our dive instructor, Jeff, was excellent! He was very thorough, friendly, and really cared about our confidence diving.We basically got a personal trainer since no one else was diving with us. I would highly recommend him! We dove in a small shallow cenote for our pool sessions which was very cool. Then we dove an ocean dive the next day which was a bit choppy and the boat was pretty small, but no one can control the weather or ocean! I did see a shark for the first time! The hotel appeared very clean and new. It was nice, small, with only several rooms, a small pool, and an upstairs thatched roof veranda where breakfast was served. The only thing that was missing was few chairs by the pool. The hotel was only a short few streets away from the main street, but the town was very friendly and safe to walk around. The rooms were very roomy, new, clean, cool modern decor, very nice bathrooms, very large comfortable beds, no TV's but we didn't care about that. Everyone including the hotel staff was very friendly and nice. The breakfast was great too- fresh fruit with granola, yogurt, juice, and coffee. Overall, it was a very great place to stay, especially if you are diving.

This hotel achieves a wonderful feeling of vacation. Every bit in the hotel seems lovely chosen, everything is there to comfort your stay. And the comfort enhances the overall impression. It is beautiful to let the evening pass by, sitting at the bar on the roof terrace. The owners are so friendly, that one could forget that this is a hotel and one has just met. They offer every possible service and numerous exciting activities, always helping with their knowledge and years of experience. Next to the sights of „Tempel des Herabsteigenden Gottes“ (El Castillo), „Tempel des Windes“(Templo del Dios del Viento) and the "Tempel der Fresken" (Templo de Los Frescos), and its closeness to the sea, the location could not have been picked better. Every day one can choose, how one wants to be pampered. Oh... while writing this, I realize, how much I want to go back... and I just have left 3 weeks ago.

A new built, very nice hotel with big rooms, modern equipment and furniture, friendly and familily-like atmosphere! Excellent for cave and cavern divers because of the dive center in the building.
