I spent 3 nights in a ocean front cabana (probably #6) Sept. 14-17. I would stay there again. In terms of my room, I found the bed firm and the linens clean. I didn't need air conditioning as the ocean breezes and ceiling fan were sufficent to make the room comfortable. Similarly, I didn't need to use the mosquito netting, and I did not encounter any bed bugs etc. The hotwater in the shower was more than ample for scrubbing off sun-bloc and washing sand out of hair etc. It was the rainy season with periodic winds and heavy rain intersperced with cloudy periods where I could enjoy the beautiful warm water covering firm sand with virtually no sea grass. The beach was comfortable for ample walking or running. I enjoyed having a deck with chairs as well as a hammock to just read while absorbing the oceans' sounds. The Mexican breakfast was ample and tasty, and I didn't get bored with it, but I was there with friends who occupied another cabana, and they like the other breakfast options too. We also had dinner there the first night, and the cheese pizza was very satisfying. My friends praised their fish entrees. We would have eaten there again but explored other options in Tulum as well as the excellent Thai offerings at the nearby Mezzanine. One suggestion I would offer the Front Desk is to keep a reservoir of 20 peso bills and coins to make change for 100 peso notes so guests can tip restaurant and cleaning staff appropriately. No hotels or restaurants seem to do this, so in mind, it would count as a true guest service!
