Great place - pretty basic but good sized bed and room (we had 3 of us in a double with one extra bed - and there was plenty of space).
I agree with other reviews here that this isn't really a "boutique" hotel but it's quite funky - and has everything you really need. It's quite far from the beach, which wasn't a problem for us as we had rented a car. I would not plan to stay here without a car -- it would take you at least 45 mins to walk to the beach and 20 mins to cycle - and there is nothing on the way so it's not a great walk or an interesting cycle. But - it's so much less touristy and crowded than the beachy places in Tulum and that's why I liked it. The food was also excellent and I loved everyone who worked here and the place really grew on me.
The only bad thing I would flag is that this hotel is right on a main road and so it's quite noisy - even in our room which was set back from the road on the other side of the courtyard - I could still hear trucks going by. It wasn't so bad that I could not sleep but light sleepers would need earplugs.
Tulum is actually a lot more built up than you think - but the beach IS very nice. Ask the guys at the hotel how to find the *public entrance*.
We stayed here for a week and worked online using the WiFi most days - which was pretty good.
Make sure you have the Huevos Rancheros! And ask Richard about getting a massage in your room. One of the best I've had :)
