Overall Hotel Latino is a good place to stay in Tulum. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was a little small but clean. The pool is too small to be called a pool. The front room is a little noisy, mainly from other guests. The location is ok, although if i was to return to Tulum I'd stay at the beach.

Dear guest,
Thank you for posting your review and for finding Hotel Latino a good place to stay when in Tulum. Although the pool is small, it is a plunge pool, and most guests find it great to refresh in on hot days. The noise you might have heard outside your room might have been new guests checking in which only lasts a few minutes. Otherwise, the area inside the hotel remains quiet throughout the day.

We enjoyed having you as our guests, and we're happy we could help with your overall experience with your stay at Hotel Latino.
Come and visit us again soon.
Liz & Gary

First I have to say the staff was great. They gave great recommendations helped with requests kept the place very clean and truly made us feel at home. The location is great. We took the bus from the airport, walked a few minutes and arrived at the hotel. It was so close a cab would have been silly. We wanted to travel on our own terms. The hotel really allowed this for us. It made it very easy to explore parts of the region outside of Tulum and be able to take advantage of everything Tulum has to offer (the town, ruins and the beach). The beach along with the ruins are an easy bicycle or car ride from the hotel. The town is right outside the door. We ate amazing street food (find the lady selling tamales on the corner of the main street and the first main cross street when you come into town from Playa), had a great bakery a block away, some of the best Latin American food I have ever had along with shopping a short walk. Most of the best places we tried came as recommendations from the proprietors, Gary and Liz. We rented a car and found it easy to explore the Yucatan from there. By staying in town it was easy to hit the main roads in all directions. We plan on returning to explore more of what the Yucatan has to offer especially Tulum which like Hotel Latino is a gem.

Room Tip: try to get one of the top floor rooms they have private patios

We were only going to stay at Hotel Latino for one night, but ended up staying for over a week (the rest of our stay). We loved this hotel.
The rooms are clean, the staff friendly and the location is perfect. They also have free wifi.
I highly recommend staying here.

Great hotel. Perfect location, right near all the bars and restaurants but not amongst all the noise. The staff are super friendly and really helpful. The rooms are really clean and well priced. Very nice place to stay. Would definitely go back.

This nice little hotel has the perfect location in Tulum. Just a block away from the bars and action means that it can be a little bit noisy, but the location and excellent staff more than make up for it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and found the hotel to be most accomodating, reasonably priced and relaxing. I would recommend this particularly to friends travelling to Tulum.

Hotel Latino is a little well located gem in downtown Tulum .We spent 10 days in Tulum and the hotel was perfect for our needs. The suite rooms are perfect size with a lovely private patio. The staff Gary and Liz are amazing hosts, super helpful with recommendations and tips to have a great time exploring Yucatan area, super relaxed, cool providing great customer service at all times. Dani as well is very friendly, helpful , courteous and very professional.
The hotel is super safe and provides you with a common patio with a free coffee-tea and filtered water station 24/7.
We loved that we were walking distance to lots of great places to eat and shop .We parked our rented vehicle with no charged. They also provide with bike rentals to browse around the beach, ruins or town.
This is a great place to stay if you don't want to stay in the beach area. Affordable, cute, clean, safe and with great people behind it!
I strongly recommend this place.

Thank you Gary, Liz and Dani! We had a great time.

Room Tip: Get a suite! It's worth the extra couple of dollars.

Hotel Latino is cute, cozy and intimate. It is right in the center of Tulum town so close to everything you need but not in the middle of all the bars and restaurant so it is pretty quite. Rooms are decently sized, nicely set up and very clean. The hotel staff is really cool, easy going and helpful. My husband and I stayed there for 17 days and we didn't have any problem, actually we really enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: suites are great!
