We stayed here for 4 nights after arriving back in Tulum, I didn't think about the jungle part of the name when we booked, but this place is set in an impressive jungle/garden of beautiful trees, plants and birds. There is also a gorgeous pool, basically the grounds here are pretty special and so relaxing.
We had an upstairs room with balcony overlooking the trees with a massive hammock and rocking chair.
The bed was huge and super comfortable - I was very appreciative of this fact when I spent a day in bed sick. Our room was spacious and decorated with lovely Mexican details and the shower had a glass roof! Our room was spotless and felt brand new.
The food was very good, breakfasts are included: pastries with delicious home made jams and fruit condiments, juices etc. The restaurant at night is romantic, we had main courses and deserts and everything we ate was delicious and well made.
We felt right at home straight away, the owners are incredible friendly and helpful and took the time to show us the bee hives they look after in a conservation project and a permaculture farm across the road as well.
If you care about things like that it is just the cherry on the top of a gorgeous boutique hotel.
A lot of people mention the location, but for us the ability to get away from the hustle and bustle of town with just a 10 minute walk was a massive bonus. You can catch a taxi anywhere in town for $25-$30 pesos (US$2) or to the beach for $50 pesos (US$4) for the seclusion it is well worth it.
Note: make sure you buy the honey - it is divine!
