If you're looking for something down to earth, rustic, and really connected to the lifestyle in Tulum this is your place! You will be sure to have an eye opening experience if you chose to visit. Not only do the owners make you feel right at home the manager Tom knows the area like the back of his hand. One of my favorite features was the communal kitchen. This gives you an opportunity to save money as well as connect with the surrounding guests.
I visited with my boyfriend in the middle of July for a week. Yes, the rooms don't have air conditioning but I didn't find this a problem for I'm a lover of the outdoors and knew it would be hot either way, it is Mexico after all. On that note, do expect there to be bugs outside...you will be out in the jungle, these kind of things happen. Bug spray worked just fine for us. All in all I would give the rooms and service a 5. Everything stays clean and the palapas are beautiful. Plus if there's anything you need the owners are happy to help.
Last but not least, I would highly suggest snorkeling with Tom's buddy Niko. He was very informative and you could tell these guys truly love their jobs. We are already planning our next visit!
