My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel for seven short days. There are eight rooms in two units of four. Our room was 20 feet from the ocean, with double French doors onto a small balcony overlooking the ocean and a larger balcony with two Adirondack chairs and a hand made hammock. I fell asleep to the sound of the waves and woke up to a beautiful sunrise. There are several palapas and tons of beach chairs. Although the beach is shared with two other hotels we never had to fight for a chair and if you didn’t like that beach all you had to do was walk ten minutes up the beach and there was beautiful stretches of beach with maybe two people. Breakfast is included, table service of either continental or a variety of hot meals from eggs to enchiladas. But just because it is included don’t forget to tip; these people rely on tips for the majority of their salary. Meals are amazing. Everything is prepared to order so relax and enjoy everything from fresh fish to pasta. Unwind on the only veranda that is right on the beach. But be prepared the rooms are rustic. They have tile floors; a couch, one or two beds with a romantic mosquito net. Our room was on the upper floor so it had a thatch roof. There is a shower but it is gravity feed salt water. Tulum beach is part of an Eco Sanctuary so the toilets are on a septic system and they do not want you to put your toilet paper in the toilet, there is a waste basket provided. That takes a little getting used to. The rooms are cleaned daily and they need to be because of all the sand you track in. Power is provided by generator that is on from 7-3, then again from 5 -11. Candles for hurricane lamps are provided. Very romantic. We checked out all the other hotels and were happy with our choice. Many were trying too hard to be little Cancun with loud music and “American” style food. I am already in the process of booking my flights and arranging for our vacation for next year. Best vacation I ever had!
