Maison Tulum was comfortable and visually appealing. We stayed in the room on the third floor with the beams across the ceiling that is in the picture here on TripAdvisor. I liked the furniture and the little balcony was a perfect place to read in the morning for a bit. There are cats and dogs (nice ones) hanging out in the beautiful garden/courtyard. The breakfast was the standard continental, but served in the lovely eating area on cool terracotta dishes. Since Maison Tulum is also a bakery, there is a selection of yummy pastries available for breakfast or snacks and sometimes it smells like baking around the hotel. This hotel is a little oasis in Tulum town. It felt good to come back here after a day of touristing.
I have seen that there is some debate about whether or not one should stay in Tulum town when you could stay on the beach. We actually did both on this trip and I can assure you that it is cheaper to stay in town. You also are closer to better value restaurants and the manager of Maison Tulum gave us many great suggestions. It is somewhat less relaxing to stay in town, however, so you might need to examine your reasons for taking your vacation. If you need to do some serious relaxing, just go to the beach. If you want some adventure and you are going to be traveling to ruins and cenotes while eating real Mexican food, stay in town. Or you could switch it up and try both! At any rate, I recommend Maison Tulum for those who opt for staying in town.

Room Tip: We were very satisfied with the third floor!

Guillermo and Simon were very helpful in accommodating us even after expedia sent them the wrong info about the number of people in our group. Two blocks away from Ave Tulum which is the main street with all the bars and restaurants, pharmacy, bakery etc which was really great. Rooms were clean and spacious and airconditioned. Would come back if staying at Tulum Pueblo.

What a nice and cosy place! Stayed there for 2 weeks and had really great time. Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely decorated, there is little patio, roof top terrace, wifi. Good location just 2 blocks from the main street but it is quiet there. Owners and staff are very friendly and always helpful. There is also a bakery and they serve freshly baked bread for breakfast. I enjoy the place and I can recommend it to anyone.

My new husband and I stayed at Maison Tulum for 3 nights in March 2012 for part of our honeymoon and it was perfect. The hotel was so charming and rustic - we really loved the vibe. It was clean, spacious and we were lucky to have the penthouse room with it's own balcony. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the hotel had such a homey feel - we really felt so welcomed. Breakfast is included so while it's just coffee, juice and buns, it's nice to have it included...and everything was fresh and tasty. There is also free wifi so we could keep in touch with those at home so they knew we were alright. For those who are not in favour of all-inclusive resorts, this hotel and this town were the perfect alternative and at a great price. We felt very comfortable and we hardly missed the fact that there was no pool, even on warmer days. The main downtown strip with shops and restaurants was a 2 minute walk; the beach was a few kilometres but we rented bicycles and had a fun adventure making our way to the beach. When we visit Tulum again, we'll be spending a lot of our time at Maison Tulum, and will highly recommend it to everyone!

I was really please to be at Maison Tulum. The location is great, two blocks from the central park and the restaurants and the shopping/boutiques. You can have a really good breakfast. The manager Guillermo and the owner Simon are wonderfull. The really help me when I lost my key car. The change the way is see Mexico. If your traveling out of all inclusives and you wanna see a really nice town, wonderfull beaches and cenotes, Maison Tulum is the place.

My wife and i stayed at this quaint little hotel in Tulum for 6 days in feb. of this year. We arrived for late check-in and were promptly greeted and checked into a nice mid-sized room, with two beds and a clean and bright bathroom on the second floor above the in-house bakery., The air-conditioner was on and working.Thank you for that! The smell of fresh backed goods was a wonderful thing to wake up to in the morning. A breakfast of fresh buns, juice and hot coffee was ready for us downstairs.They also provide a breakfast menu for other items, which we took advantage of every day for a nominal fee. The daily maid service was prompt and efficient. When i dropped and broke a glass bottle, it was cleaned up within 5 minutes. wow! We met some nice people who also stayed there. Shout out to Chris and Kelsey. When it was time to leave, we needed early check out. No problem. No extra fees that you hear about at other places either. A great place and a great experience. Thank you Maison Tulum.
