We came to Tulum after a hectic music festival to get ourselves back together. We had booked into another Tulum hotel that had come highly recommended however it didn't feel quite right. We were happy enough as we had the most beautiful beach with the whitest sand; what can only be described as the most see through sea ever and restaurants of the Gods. We couldn't get enough of Tulum but something wasn't quite right.
This is when we moved to Ahau and everything seemed right with the world. We'd come across the hotel on walks on the beach and it looked beautiful from the outside. Once we checked in, it only got better. The welcome we got was the antithesis to what we'd just experienced so was even more welcome. We stayed in a Junior Suite and we woke in wonder every morning to see the sun rise from our big, comfy bed.
The bathrooms were adequate and you do need to bear in mind that it is an eco resort for things like water pressure. It wasn't a problem at all but good to remember you are essentially 'off the grid' in Tulum.
The beds on the beach were made for two so you were never short of company whilst sunbathing. The restaurant was delicious. Menu is short and sweet but fresh and tasty. There are so many amazing restaurants in Tulum it would be a sin not to try them out.
There was a nice buzz in general around the place and it never felt like there was many other people there but all the rooms were full. Also, the set up of the Ahau must be commended - having tiered accommodation and prices means it feels like an inclusive resort rather than exclusive which I personally think is what makes it so special.
Each time our check out day arrived we had to add more days on to our stay it was such a glorious stay. Highly recommended.
