My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights, and we really enjoyed the place. First things first: if you're looking for a traditional "American" hotel, don't stay here -- there's a reason "Cabanas" is included in the title. The cabana we stayed in was quite spacious and had a shower, a bed, and a ceiling fan. The cabanas don't have AC, so you have to open the windows, let the mosquito net down over the bed, and there you go. Additionally, each cabana has a porch and a hammock, which my girlfriend and I used at night to drink beer and hang out -- the porch was a fantastic part of the cabanas, and we saw many people using the porch/hammock every day.
Many reviews complain about the manager, but we actually found him to be very nice and helpful. Heck, he woke up at 4 AM in the morning to make sure we were awake for our early morning flight on the day we left. The service staff is quite nice (if somewhat reserved). The pool was pretty cool, and the gardens are night are fantastic. Another common complaint is that there's no hot water, and that's not entirely true: we only had hot water in the mornings (and once at night), so their water heater probably just isn't large enough to handle the demand at peak hours. Of course, if you're there during the warmer times of the year, you really don't need the hot water at all. Finally, the place sells water, beer, and cokes on site, so if you really don't want to leave for the day, you don't have to... but you should, because Tulum has so much to offer.
The cabanas are about a minute's drive from Tulum... and quite a drive from the beach. In fact, Tulum itself is far from the beach, so I'd recommend renting a car or scooter during your stay. Even bikes could be tiring, especially after a dinner and night out.
Overall, it was a really neat, natural place to stay, and my girlfriend and I will definitely head back here when we return to Tulum!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Born from the green of its surroundings and the authenticity of its structures. Green- Tulum Cabanas& Gardens, in the heart of Tulum, the last virgin stretch in the Riviera Maya. The hotel has 13 artisan cabanas with two floors, a total of 26 rooms. The surroundings are unbeatable, a natural paradise of flora and fauna, with secret nooks were one can devour a book, chat by candle light or simply close your eyes....and feel the Mayan magnetism. The swimming pool makes the hot sunny days a desired element, in order to dive into the cool water, take a "siesta" in one of the sun beds and ask for a cocktail at dusk. ... more less
