Tita Tulum Hotel Ecologico

Reviewed 13 June 2012

We stayed at Tita Tulum for my son's birthday. The staff is very friendly. We had the restaurant make a cake for his birthday and it was delicious. The room was nice. I loved the hammocks on the porch. The view is unbelievable! It's a very family friendly hotel. The beach is the nicest beach I have ever been to. I will be back soon!!

There are lots of options for beachfront spots in Tulum, so why go here?
Here's what we found at Tita's.
1. When we locked our keys in the rented car with the engine still running and on a weekend night (can it get worse than that), Tita herself spent an hour on the phone tracking down someone who could open it. Multiple calls and dogged determination to help her guests resolve the problem.

2. The cabana was in better shape than most others companies in the vicinity as we discovered by walking the beach. The cheaper ones didn't look so hot at all, and those that were as good or better cost a lot more. The cabana felt very 'natural' overall but was quite effectively sealed against mosquitoes and included a mosquito net over the beds. There was electricity at all times. They left fresh clean safe water in jugs each morning. Bedding was pretty clean. Mattress was definitely very firm but my back felt better after three nights. We chose cabana 1. Neither the cheapest or most expensive, but best one for the money, I'd think for most people: right on the beach on the far north side of the property and so quiet. And there are two quality hammocks hanging on the deck, with a shading overhang. One thing: welcome the harmless and cute little lizards: they eat the bugs you don't want around, and seemingly with great effect from what we could see.

3. Staff were friendly and skilled and those we most interacted with spoke enough English to get by. I knew no Spanish but had the Lonely Planet phrase book. Waiter Hadwen at the restaurant helped me hone my pronunciation and correct my grammar when he realized I appreciated it.

4. The quality of food at the restaurant was high, with prices higher than some might expect for Mexico - but if you think about it, why should they deeply discount when you'd pay that much at home for good food? There were limited breakfast choices but they were all delicious. The guacamole was almost perfectly, the traditional chunky recipe rather than the over-pureed mess at many places. We had the whole fish two nights running because we enjoyed it so much first night. There are lots of other places nearby for those wanting a break. There's a steak resto further south, named after a yellow tropical fruit, that we found very expensive and over-rated.

5. It's a great beach out front. Sublime. The best beach you're ever likely to run across. Great for walking along, with morning joggers making the most of it. Try to get up before sunrise and walk the beach; you'll be so glad you did. The water is great. Some days the swimming is great, in less perfect weather you can still jump against the waves. We stayed 3 nights; if I could do it over, I'd stay a week there.

6. One minor downer: the shower, while squeeky, needs a bit of updating. And it's true that it could use more water coming out, so it took a bit longer to rinse off. But there was always hot water.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are well located and at the quiet end. Nothing looked like a bad choice, however, but...

After spending 7 days in the very tranquil town of Xcalak (in the southern Costa Maya) we wondered how crazy it would be on the beaches of Tulum. We had friends staying at The Cabanas (Ziggy Beach) and La Zebra. We decided to choose a place between the two that was a little less expensive. Great choice! Very quiet place among the top hotels. Our cabana sat right at the edge of the beach. Nice large room. Sunrise filtering thru the vegetation from bed. At least that's where my wife saw them from, I was on the beach the 2 mornings we stayed. Nice little restaurant for breakfast (they do lunch and dinner too) and nice kicked back atmosphere. The only thing I could see for improvement would be a small fridge in the rooms. Otherwise beautiful place to stay minutes walk away from Ziggy Beach and La Zebra.

Room Tip: Number 5 is closest to the beach. The upstairs unit looks like it would be really nice too.

Just back from four days on Tulum's beautiful, white sand beaches and Tita's Tulum....and it wasn't enough!! It was the perfect spot to unwind; a spacious cabana with private bath, steps from the water, front porch with double hammocks for a mid-day siesta, low key but attentive staff, open air restaurant serving basic Norte Americano fare as well as tasty MX dishes (ask for the Tita Specials!), all very fairly priced and all on one of the Mayan Rivieras best stretch of beach. 24 hour electricity, but to conserve the solar generated power, there are no outlets in the cabanas. For those that must stay "connected", there is a locked, charging station in the liquor cabinet in the dining room next to the kitchen door, as well as an outlet on the dining room wall, just in case you need to power/charge any electronics. We could actually pick-up the free wifi from our cabana porch on our Acer net-book.
Next trip to Tita's will be for at least a week...or MORE!

Room Tip: Cabana #1, is closest to the water out of the ten and has the best view. Tita's has an excellent...

Two friends on holiday from the States, we thoroughly enjoyed Tita and her hotel. Walk from the cabin into the sand that feels like flour between your toes. Princess houses that were so special (mosquito netting). lol. Cabin is solar powered, nice break from all the electricity and bright lights. Chargers for our devices readily available and locked up in the open reception/restaurant area. Pleasantly surprised to find salt water coming from the sink and shower. Fresh water completely available for hydration. We found a world class restaurant, Casa Banana, a 15 minute walk south. Open cooking area, friendly staff, beautiful venue. The restaurant at Tita's was wonderful for the ocean view and the guacamole/chips were worth eating more than once. Let's just say we didn't go hungry on this trip! Cabs are plentiful with reasonable, set prices. 'made it very easy to travel to and from the bus, and to the ruins....

Our second stay at Tita Tulum and this time we stayed for a total of 12 days. We had four couples, two of which stayed for one week while my wife and I and the other couple stayed the entire 12 days. We have been coming to this area of Mexico for 10 years and have gone from all inclusive resorts, to renting a house on the beach, to a combination of house rental and Tita Tulum and now staying full time at Tita's. We plan to go back again next year. The 10 cabanas are wonderful - you walk out of your cabana and you are on the beach. Each cabana has electricity 24/7 (no place to plug things in but they do have plug ins at the restaurant that are secure and allow one to recharge phones, computers, etc.) and a complete washroom with shower. The one thing that you need to get used to is the fact that the water used for showering and the sink has a slight salt content but this is basically normal for all the hotels and resorts along the "Cabana District" running from Tulum to Punta Allen. The water from the taps is not potable but they supply you with pitchers of water that is from purified bottled water they bring in.

The other thing that one must realize is that most of the rooms (except the bottom rooms on the two units that are two story) have thatched roofs and there are openings under the eaves and at the peak of the roofs that can allow bugs and things to get in. In our two stays for a total of 15 days at Tita's we only had a problem with flying bugs one night this stay as the wind had died down and we had lights on. Once we turned off the light and turned on the outside porch light, the bugs disappeared. Once in awhile you may also see some small crawling creatures or small lizards but they do not bother you - they are more afraid of you than you are of them and they will go away. If you are bothered by the constant sound of he waves and the wind, then this and other similar places in the cabana district, may not be a good choice. Anywhere near the ocean, you will have constant wind and the sound of the waves. The trade off in moving away from the ocean is that it will be hotter, more humid and the bugs could awful.

The service at Tita's from reception, the restaurant, servicing the rooms and finally to our departure, was outstanding. Keep in mind that their is a bit of a language barrier but there is usually one or two people there at all times that understand English. Yet the ones that struggle to understand English still try and you can get through sometimes by pointing or using hand gestures. The food in their restaurant is extremely well prepared and priced quite reasonably. You have to understand that you will wait at times to be served since they make each meal from scratch - very little is prepared in advance. There are many restaurants within a short walk from Tita's and most of them offer a wide variety of great food. However, the value and quality of the meals at Tita's was the best we have found.

This area is truly paradise with beaches that have the softest and finest sand we have seen in our travels to Mexico. Most places along the cabana district have no rocks or reefs close in so the bottom is sandy for as far out as you can walk in the water.

Room Tip: Cabanas 1, 2 and 5 are closest to the water and the two cabanas that are second story units (I think...
