My girlfriend and I travelled to Tulum last week. I looked at and contacted over 20 different places on the Tulum beach strip but this turned out to be a hidden gem in paradise.
Moni was very helpful when booking and responding quickly to all email questions. She even sent photos of the two different room options which were available. We ended up staying in the Chan room which was awesome. It is the only room which is not connected to the others. It has two little balconies one of which we had breakfast on every morning. All of the rooms are are back from the main beach by about 100m. There is a little sandy forest of palms and shrubs between the rooms and the beach, which is really nice becuase you are not "on display" from the people walking the beach. The hotel really has anything that the other hotels on the strip have but I found for a faction of the price and twice the privacy. I think you would need to spend at least $300 to get the next level up in any of the hotels. The staff are amazing. "Pinky" makes a great breakfast, and the two guys who are always on site make it feel safe.
On day 2 of our 5 day stay, one of the reception girls said that they had overbooked the hotel with a big group and asked if we would be willing to move to another set of cabana's Moni owned down the beach about a kilometer. We were a bit sad to leave Chan but remained optimistic and flexible and moved. Not only did Moni not charge us for two nights in our new cabana but we were literally the only people in our private beach. The waves crashed 25 steps from our door and we couldnt have asked for more.
All in all, both the Chan Cabanitas and Blue Iguana are amazing. Everything you need when you go to Tulum.
