For what we paid - relative to US and Mexican prices - this was quite reasonable. ~$100 per night. We had the ground level bungalow room that's closest to the beach (right on/in the beach if I'm being honest). It's comfortable. No AC. But I think that's standard of the area. You need to leave the door open at night to let the air through. One word of warning....if you can't stand cockroaches, this place is not for you. Fabio and the guys running the place are super helpful at removing creepy crawlies...but if you're like my room mate who can't even stand to think that one had been in the same room as her...it's not worth it. One thing worth mentioning is that the guys prepare breakfast every morning and set it out in front of the cabana.
You need to pay cash on check out! Bring US dollars!!
I loved this place. Thing you should realise about Tulum, is that there isn't a "centre" along the beach...so unless you're comfortable with your partners thoughts...or your own for that matter, maybe consider Playa Del Carmen. As it stood we were 2 single girls looking to break loose. Granted - we did uncover a local rave in the Tulum Cenotes....so don think you have a place necessarily figure out from the get go!!
We did a tour to Chichen Itza using iTours in Tulum. DO NOT DO IT!! If you must, get a private guide. It was a complete waste of time. We got no information whatsoever about the ruins. It was a whole day long and brutally disappointing.
Spend some time to see the ruins in Tulum. We did it on our last day and I wish we'd done it sooner.
Some great restaurants in the area...Casa Banana, le zebra and Hartwood...being just 3.
WIFI is available in the cabanas for free and there are 3 different banks in the town if you need to withdraw cash.
