My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here, and it was by far one of the best vacations we've had. It was perfect for us - but it's not for everyone. If you like TV, air conditioning, your hair dryer, and big, traditional resorts, this is not for you.

We stayed one night in Arena and 3 nights in Mar. Try to book one of the larger rooms - especially on the 2nd level -- Mar was amazing!! The room was beautiful, rustic, and romantic.
You truly feel like you're getting away when you stay here. I loved that there were no TVs. I loved that you could not use an iron or hairdryer. And I loved that the rooms were literally on the beach.

The restaurant was fantastic - everyone that we met there was so friendly and welcoming and the food was fresh, simple and delicious. Our favorite dinner was one night where we ate the lobster that we'd watched come fresh off the fisherman's boat a few hours earlier. And the atmosphere in the restaurant, with the candles and the sound of the waves and ocean breeze, was amazing.

Our stay at Luv Tulum was one of the few vacations that we've said "we're definitely coming back!!".

Room Tip: The Arena room was ok, fine, but the larger rooms esp. up on the 2nd level, like Mar, are amazing!

Everywhere you go it's all about the people - the staff was really really great - both hotel & restaurant. The beach area is so beautiful that you'll end up with photos from paradise :-) And there were no mosquitos - we walked 1km up north and got eaten in another restaurant bu them there. But non in Luv Tulum somehow.

At first we spent 4 days in Mar and then extended our stay for 2 nights in Agua. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the view in Mar is unbelieveable. Also the sound of the waves... As we stayd there 6 nights finally some things started to bother us a little - it also suprised ourselves as the first days felt incredible. It is eco-hotel and so there are some things - no proper lights in the rooms - just 1 small tiny lamp - as it gets dark 6-7pm you have to read with flashlight. Also the running water was not fresh and in one room the shower was working properly but the sink faucet not. In another room vice versa - just drops pressing through the shower but sink ok. So in 6 days you start to miss proper freshwater shower and lights in the evening. Other than that it's perfect. The photos speak for themselves. And thanks from us to the staff for a nice stay.

We stayed at this hotel during October this year and it was absolutely amazing! The accommodation, the beach and the helpful staff but this an incredible experience. We booked this hotel based on reviews on trip advisor and it exceeded our expectations. Thanks to everyone at Luv Tulum for a great vacation

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the beach are the best

This hotel is a ecological hotel so there is a lack of strutcture, such as salt water for showers and not enough lighting in the room.
But thats just a small thing comparing to the great view and staff.

Belgian family: We stayed a couple of days at luv tulum as part of a one-month-journey through the South of Mexico. Having done this East to West coast trip we feel comfortable saying that luv tulum was located on one of the most incredible, mind-blowing beaches we came across with during our entire Mexico-holiday. The hotel compound consists of several cosy huts placed directly on a private beach, accompanied by an intimate restaurant that serves you the freshest, quality food with an excellent service and a family atmosphere.
These cabins are placed in such a way that you feel embraced by them and give you a primitive feeling, while at the same time having all the luxuries you need.
It might not be the cheapest way to escape reality, but all of these aforementioned ingredients and some good company, just give you that very rare feeling of intense happiness.
Look at the pictures and just imagine yourself waking up here. nuff said :)

Room Tip: Even though all the rooms we checked were beautiful and had their own character, we highly recommend...

Arriving after the long flight from England we had a very warm welcome at Luv Tulum in the evening. We had a very nice, clean room (aqua) at the first floor where our two children and we had two KingSize beds with moscito nets and a lot of space as well as a beautiful view to the beach and the water.
Everything was relaxed, the late check out at 12:00 is perfect, that you enjoy the perfect spot after a nice mex-ital breakfast in the cosy littel hotel-restaurant.

The second stay at the end of our Mexico holiday started with our missed booking. But the hotel staff was great and organized promptly another nice clean and big first floor room (viento) for all four of us and offered a free dinner we were happy about.
During the dinner there was a fire in the hotel next door so we were evacuted from the restaurant and again the hotel staff was friendly, organized and knew exactly what to do. We were informed all the time during the incident and felt safe whole time.

Both stays were perfect, the night was quite so we had a good sleep, the beach and the water was a dream and all the staff was very helpful, very friendly and organized.

All in all it was great and we will come back - DEFINATELY!!

@ Luv Tulum: best wishes to Jack the crab from the kitschen door ;-)
