We stayed at Las Ranitas for four nights. The staff were very welcoming. Upon our arrival they had a great cocktail ready for us. The main reception palapa area has a nice ambiance, and as many other reviews of Las Ranitas point out the hotel is on a great stretch of beach, with great shade and sun lounging.
The hotel is located towards the end of the Tulum Boca Paila strip of hotels and restaurants. If you have a car this is perfect, you get all the tranquility of what might be the best strip of beach, while about a third of the great restaurants in the area are within walking distance (there are plenty of taxi's and driving is fine as long as you keep an eye on the pot holes!).
The room we stayed was great, it was one of the Crystal Upper Floor rooms. which are very comfortable, have a great bathroom, airco, mini bar and a great view. Some of the other rooms in the older section of (this small) hotel we found a bit too basic.
We really enjoyed our time in Tulum, the atmosphere in Tulum is (still) very pleasant, laid back and has the same vibe Playa del Carmen had in the 1990s. If you are looking for the big resort 5 star experience don't go to Tulum, look for the big resorts all along the Riviera Maya.
