We had a very enjoyable and restful stay in a very beautiful natural setting.
The staff is very kind and attentive including the owners Lu and made us feel completely welcome. The yoga instructor Siomara gave great and fun classes in Kundalini Yoga at very reasonable rates and took special care of us occasional practitioners
The cabanas are rustic but clean. They are however basic and somewhat open to the outside with a simple fan, requiring a mosquito net and repellent. In order to get the best benefit, I strongly recommend choosing a beachfront cabana for the breezes and morning view
Overall this is a reasonably priced option for the area on a great part of the beach, other places looked OK but some were on a more smelly stretch due to seaweed accumulation. If you're looking for the vapid and standardized international boutique feel this ain't it! They do have wi-fi but it feels good to disconnect.
Nearby (walking distance) are great restataurants El Tabano (great interesting food), Posada Margherita (pricey but huge portions)
Tulum town is reachable via a 50 pesos cab ride
Bring: suntan lotion, repellent, a flashlight, a good book and leave the hustle and bustle behind.
