First off, the gentlemen - Julio and Carlos- who manage the establishment are ultra laid-back and cool. El Punto is located very near (.5 km) to the main highway in Tulum, about 1km from the center of town and about 2 km from the nearest public beach. If you want the luxury resort, right-on-the-beach experience, look elsewhere and prepare to pay for it. El Punto offers simple, spacious rooms with air conditioning, running water (which fluctuates in temperature depending on the time of day), private bathrooms and romantic lighting. There is a community kitchen and a big-box style grocery store is right across the street if you want to save money on dining. If you book the room online, prepare to pay for the room upon the time of checkout - not in advance as we thought we'd done. Rooms were cleaned daily but a new set of clean sheets had to be requested after the third evening of our stay as we kept returning from our excursions to find the same sheets on the bed, however tidied by the maid. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who might consider staying in a hostel but would prefer some of the niceties of a hotel. The use of free bicycles were a very nice touch. Would stay here again for sure!
