Be Tulum is an exquisite hotel. The rooms are unique and well appointed. We loved the tasteful bohemian decor, the private balcony, outdoor shower(!!!) and Jacuzzi bathtub with soaking salts. The grounds are gorgeous, the food tasty, beverages cold and creative, and the company good. Excellent live music. We splurged on our honeymoon and really enjoyed our stay.
However, for $600 a night, for an "ocean front" we won't go back. You could see the ocean if you craned your neck, leaned over the balcony, used your imagination and accepted the tiny sliver of blue you could squint and see made it "ocean front." The craftmanship of the rooms left something to be desired and there were problems with doors. We value spending our money in other ways and found the place didn't provide much more that other hotels we have visited in Tulum, minus the elite status. For us, we found A LOT of honeymooning company at this "it" destination. It felt like we were on honeymoon island and found it very challenging to find a private space away from the other couples staying at the hotel. The scene was great, we just wanted something more private. No fault of the hotel. The beach is small and each cabana seemed occupied. There are better beaches for one-fifth of the price. You are paying for something else. The clientele seemed more concerned with looking good than swimming in the ocean. We felt a bit stifled by the scene, although I can see that many people would love it! Be Tulum caters to the NYC/LA crowd. And its incredible. Just not private. Or for us.
