Our group of 8 (4 couples) just returned from Cabanas Tulum where we stayed 3 nights before heading up to Playa Del Carmen. Big Mistake...we should have stayed LONGER!!! It was a wonderful experience for everyone. We occupied the older beachfront rooms which are situated on the north end of the resort. They were ideal. The porches/patios were staggered just enough for privacy, but yet close enough that we could lean over the railing and say "hi neighbor" whenever we wanted to see what the others were up to. Having a room at this end of the resort is like having a private beach to yourself. The garden rooms, situated behind look very nice as well. They've got a charming look to them, and are really only a few steps away from the beach (as with every room at CT).
I can't say enough about the fanastic service provided. The staff is second to none. The group remarked constantly about the upbeat and gracious service. If you don't leave feeling that you've made some great new friends I would be surprised.
We particularly enjoyed our daily breakfast at the el Bistro restaurant. It's a wonderful way to start the day. There's something for everyone to be found on the menu. Between dips in the sea, complimentary bike use to explore the beach road and lazing on our porches we loved occupying the swing seats at the bar or grabbing a table for drinks and snacks. We had dinner there on our first and last nights. Both times we were treated to some great food, beautifully presented with fast service. Dining and drinking while watching the sun go down, the moon come up and waves rolling in can't be beat.
The morning after our arrival, I was greeted by Christina from the reservations office. Having been the organizer for the group, my wife and I were offered an upgrade to a deluxe beachfront room. We pondered for a bit about leaving our friends to be a few doors down. We accepted, and found the new room be luxurious. We did miss being close to our friends though. These rooms, as you would read about in other reviews are very contemporary, and somewhat sparsely appointed. The patio area is very large and comfortable. If I had one suggestion, it would be simply a table, or desk addition along one of the walls. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Everyone's beds in all the rooms were very nice. I slept great. With the deluxe beachfront, we did miss the handy little foot bath that we all had out front of our patio with each of the standard beachfront rooms. I believe that being a somewhat sizeable group, the management wanted us to experience one of the newer rooms, hence the upgrade. Overall, I liked it very much, but I'd be just as happy with the standard beachfront room anytime. The large patio did however provide us with a great place to congregate the second and third evenings. Very comfy couch, hammock, table and chairs with room to spread out our snacks.
Thank you very much Christina, Anna, Emilio, Amato, Roberto, Roberto, Rafael, Carlos, Fidel, Cecilia, (darn..I am trying to remember all these names) and my favorite Jose Luis who while spending long hours doing prep work for the bar and restaurant while remaining the happiest guy on the planet, for making this a very happy and memorable trip!
