We were in Tulum on what was supposed to be a sun filled return trip to Quintana Roo/ Yucatan. Maybe my 15th-20th trip to the area. We were greeted by Hurricane Ingrid that persisted all through the entire week we were there. We had planned to go from Playa to Chichen Itza through Tulum bu the weather was so bad that it was clear that Chichen Itza would be a washout. So we needed a place to stay in Tulum and found the Don Diego de la Selva on Tripadvisor. Rate was excellent so we went and were immediately pleased. Wonderful hosts. The owners are French and very hospitable. The place was delightful. A huge palapa for breakfast and dinner. The rooms are very clean and new, each with a patio/hammock. Wifi not the best but it works at the palapa. If you've been to Tulum, you know that hotels can be cheap or can be nice, but not usually both. This place was great for the money. Love the fact that there isa community refrigerator and refill station for water.
It is a little hard to find the first time as you think you are leaving town. But the location is great and very convenient when you find it. Once you get far enough down the main Carretara, there is a sign on the road. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. Great vibes in the owners and staff. They raise honey and as other have noted, they use bee/honey based products. Just a nice touch, but representative of the place.
