Reviewed July 14, 2007

We arrived here just before closing time at 11, after a recommendation from the Weary Traveler, which was full. We are so glad we stayed here. We stayed in Cabana 9, which was $28/night. We didn't have any problems with noise, maybe because our cabana was right next to the main building, not next to the highway, and because we both wear earplus (which I think is necessary no matter where you travel.) Our cabana was lovely, a comfy bed, bug net, soundless fan, and shelves for our stuff. The bathroom was a 20-second walk across the lovely gardens. We enjoyed the free breakfast (pancakes) and made use of the safety deposit box and laundry service. It rained a bit well we were there, because it was the beginning of the rainy season, but there was TV, magazines and books to keep us entertained.

I stayed at Rancho for five nights and had a really fun time. The staff was helpful and sent me to some great places to explore. I also met other travelers who gave me tip on where to stay in Merida which was my next stop. Orginally I was onlt going to stay in Tulum for two nights, but found much more to do other than visit the ruins. Rancho was clean and the showers were hot.

Buses and trucks rumble past Rancho Tranquilo all night on the major highway that is adjacent to this misleadingly named hotel. If you are stuck staying there, MAYBE rooms that are far away from the highway would be better.

I stayed at the Rancho for about a week. It was the perfect place to stay to get oriented to the Tulum region and plan my next travel move. The staff were incredibly helpful, going out of their way to get me connected to the people and places I needed to make my trip a joy to remember. The free daily breakfast and evening communal gathering in the main hall to cook dinners, watch movies, play games, or just talk with other travelers from all over the world was wonderful. The BBQs were fantastic. The Rancho is not a five star resort, filled with fake amenities and superficial smiles, but it is real Mexico, filled with real laughter, good people, and great memories. It's the kind of place I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend, and the place I plan to stay at when I next pass through Tulum. Say hi to Peso the dog for me.
