We stayed here for 5 nights in February and payed $150 per night for a room with two small double beds, which is quite good value for the area. Although the rooms don't face the ocean you can see it from all the verandas. The rooms are basic but clean but there is no fridge and the air conditioning is very noisy. However, staff was very friendly and helpful and let us borrow a cold box to keep drinks cool but had to go into town every day for fresh ice.
Breakfast is reasonably good but unfortunately, it is only served between 9-11am, and as the sun rises at 7am it is quite a long wait. Also, breakfast is served in a rather unappealing room without any atmosphere whatsoever.
All rooms come with two double beds but we only found them adequate as large singles, which means it is very popular with young families and sometimes the childrens' crying is a very good alarm clock for the rest of the guests.
The beach club, which is associated with the hotel, is very popular during the day but at night it is very, very quiet and there is not much around except for a nearby Italian restuarant, which is good, and a Thai resturant, which is excellent.
There are two security guards all night long and on our last night we made the mistake of removing our wrist bands. This was noticed by both security and at breakfast the next day. We didn't realise that it was being monitored to this extent but it was reassuring to know.
The beach near the hotel is in the least developed stretch in Tulum and within walking distance to the Tulum Mayan ruins, which is best viewed first thing in the morning at 8am before the crowds arrive. There are many things you can do from the beach including snorkelling, fishing and kite surfing and there are no noisy power boats or jet ski. Overall, we would recommend a very safe stay here as police presence is evident both on the roads and on the beach and security at the hotel is also very effective.
