This was our first time to Mexico and I have to say, they nailed it. We wanted to stay well away from any large hotel and the all-inclusives. We wanted slow and easy. In essence, we wanted the Corona commercial. And in Tulum, this is what we got.
By luck we found Hip Hotels after doing an extensive search. Everything that I found on the web was true. It is clean, small, affordable (not the most expensive, not the cheapest), the food was good, the staff was incredibly nice. We stayed in room 24, just off the beach on the second floor of one of the bungalows. The rooms were cleaned each day with fresh towels and sheets. The shower had good water pressure and ample hot water. A nice hammock on the patio was great to lay in and listen to the waves.
The restaurant: Excellent. The first night we got there we ordered a whole fish. They brought us out a whole Red Grouper. Freaking amazing. From there on out we ate breakfast and lunch there each day. Generally we ate lunch down in our beach chairs where the staff brought us drinks and food. We ventured out for dinners in the area (go to Hartwood at least one night) just to mix it up. I cant say enough about the staff running the restaurant. Johan is the manager and he has a gang that works with him that is funny and willing to go out of their way. One night they went out and cut us fresh aloe plants for my girlfriends sunburnt legs. Johan and his gang really did an amazing job and for the record, they speak perfect english...
