As a father of a 13 year old and 10 year old, I choose the hotel for its beach location, and a recommendation in "The Rough Guide to the Yucatan."
The Hotel (and jewelry store in the lobby) is located at 3.5KM Tulum Ruinas - Boca Paila Road. It is one of several pasadas located at this beach (Cabanas Punta Piedra, Cabanas la Conchita, Piedra Escondida, and Zamas.) The beach is outstanding. My kids loved it, and were in the water non-stop for 2.5 hours. Their only request is that we bring boogie boards next time. Fortunately they hooked up with 2 other kids, 10 and 12 that shared theirs. This other family stays at Cabanas la Conchita every year. The combination of tropical sun, and white sand make bright here so use plenty of sun block, and re-apply frequently.
Since we are a family of four there were few room choices here, so we ended up in Garden Room 1, which has a king and a single bed (and is located in the annex across the street from the beach.) The room, linens and towels were clean. Power runs through the night, but goes off in the AM. There were no electrical outlets in the room to recharge iPods, phones etc. Management offered us an electrical outlet in the restaurant, but warned us to stay with our item. There is an Internet cafe next door; I think they charged me $1.50 an hour.
We only ate breakfast here. There's a free continental breakfast. The American breakfast for four cost me $77!! We had dinner at Zamas the night before, and it was excellent; as was the live jazz band, and cost about the same.
The staff are European, and very nice, helpful and responsive. To that last point, I am hopeful that they have repaired the bathroom light switch, from which I received a mild electrical shock after my shower.
We will return because we all loved this beach. Next time I hope to book a room on the beach, or try one of the other posadas right next door.
I paid for the room in advance using PayPal.
