My husband & I just returned from a 4 night stay at NVR. It was our first time in Tulum and.....wow......it's absolutely beautiful there! We are definitely planning on returning to Tulum, however, we probably won't stay at NVR on our next visit.
Casa Banana, NVR's restaurant, was great! The staff was very nice and everything we tried was good. In addition to the breakfast included with our stay at NVR, we usually purchased one traditional breakfast to share. The waiters also come to the beach so that you can order drinks & lunch while lounging ocean front. The prices were really reasonable.
The actual location of the hotel is amazing. We stayed ON the beach. The surrounding restaurants and resorts were easy to walk or bike to so it's in an ideal spot in Tulum.
Now, here's where my review takes a turn. We stayed in a Corazon suite, which is the higher end rooms at NVR. Like I said, the location of the room was phenomenal, but unfortunately the same can't be said for the room. The "suite" is really just a hotel room. The bathroom is pretty outdated with brown tile, grout stains and rust in the shower. The room itself was pitch black. As soon as it got dark out, we had to use our iphone flashlights to see. I can't imagine why they don't provide flashlights. There were a bunch of funky lights that pretty much did nothing in terms of lighting. There wasn't a mirror in front of the bathroom sink so, even if I could have seen, there wasn't a mirror there anyway! There was one single plug in the entire room which made charging our electronics super annoying. I kind of felt like I was camping. Before anyone counters back that Tulum is rustic and there are environmental reasons for some of their choices, we did look at a few other resorts and they did not have the same issues with lighting and plugs. Also, since we were staying in a more $$$ suite, I did expect for there to be a few more amenities.
Overall we still had a great time and really, really enjoyed Tulum.
