There's a serious lack of charm in this hotel, although they offer the most rare treat in Tulum: big and ar conditioned rooms. Rooms are not cabanas at al, and if you want solid brick walls and a good bathroom inside your room there's the place for you. Thats what made me choose it in the first place but..
Reception is the most anticlimactic, its like you've just arrived in a cheap city center lawyer's waiting room.
Breakfast is nonexistent, they serve some yesterday's food with nothing fresh, even the coffee is cold. Actually they dont care about food at all - restaurant was closed during my stay (june 2012) and I dont know if was temporary, but if you wanted to lunch or dine in you couldnt, there was nothing to eat after breakfast.
Beach was just ok, not rocky (which is nice) but i've seen better stretches of sand out there.
Like I said, room is comfy but dont mind paying more for ocean view - i stayed in both ocean and garden views (my booked room was taken the first night so i got an ocean view one) and can tell its almost the same. You get a huge and undone grass view and little ocean from both of them.
To sum it up, stay there if you want A/C, dont stay if you want the Tulum hippiechic and charming atmosphere. That you'll find in the expensive cabanas out there (try Posada Marguerita, restaurant is nice and cabanas looked good).
