“Spectacular Place to Recharge While Unplugged”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights in mid-February and did not want to leave! You could not ask for a better location...right on a secluded beach with the most powdery sand we've ever felt. All staff members were very warm and immediately made us feel at home.
Our room (Luna, master suite) was beautifully painted and decorated (we hoped to buy some of the furnishings in town, only to learn that they were created by Francis at Suenos!), spotless, and peaceful; we weren't even sure we had downstairs neighbors (we did).
All meals we had at the hotel's restaurant were delicious, including the complimentary fruit and yogurt breakfast, great tacos for lunch, and the caprese salad.
Other highlights include hammocks throughout the grounds, 7 or 8 day beds on the beach (pillows for them in your room), and yoga classes nearly every day. It was clear that Elizabeth, Jorge, and Francis thought of every detail and poured their passion into making Suenos an unforgettable experience. We already want to return...

Room Tip: Luna was on the far right end of the grounds, so it was farthest from the dining area and pool. It w...

This was the first hotel we enjoyed in the yucatan and was by far our favorite. Nothing beats walking out your room door and being RIGHT on the beach! Breakfast was fresh and filling. Our waiter Mateo was outstanding! We enjoyed his prompt and friendly service for six meals during our three day stay. And then there was the food.....YUM! Really outstanding meals for all of us for every meal. Mateo even gave our daughter a special Valetine cookie. The owners were equally as pleasant to work with. They were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We really wish we would have spent our whole week there instead of moving around :(

There may be a better place to stay on the Mayan Riviera, but not for me. The accommodations are superb; the food is excellent and keeps getting better every time we visit; the beach is incomparable and goes forever; the yoga teachers are knowledgeable and fun; the other guests are simpatico and enjoyable; and the owners couldn't be nicer.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are the best

Between the amazing food, amazing hospitality, amazing views, privacy and overall quiet that Suenos Tulum offers, we would not consider staying anywhere else! It will be a trip we take again and this will be the lodge of choice for it...

What an amazing hotel. The owners built this hotel with love and care; you can see this in the details. No detail was too small. The art and details abound inside and out. I was constantly finding a beautiful artfully done treasure on the walls and within the gardens of the hotel. It is a very clean hotel and I felt very safe and cared for. The staff was thoughtful, helpful, very kind and bilingual so I never had a problem with miscommunication. They were helpful with getting me any tour or attraction information that I needed.

I started my first day at the hotel with a relaxing massage then I enjoyed an incredibly delicious and high quality breakfast that consisted of fresh fruit, freshly made juices, coffee and delicious Mexican breads and pastries. They offer yoga onsite every morning. Tulum is a very cool town that you must see on foot or on bike. The hotel has bikes to lend and if you cannot find one at the hotel there are many places within the town in which you can rent a bike or a motor scooter. In my opinion, this is The hotel to stay at when visiting Tulum.

Room Tip: Every room is unique and beautiful.

Suenos Tulum was everything we had hoped for in a romantic, restful get-away. Our room overlooked the beach and the ocean, with a gorgeous view from our balcony and a very short walk to the beach. The restaurant cooks only for guests and the food is delicious, prepared to order, presented beautifully, and served by the absolute nicest of guys - Mateo - who takes such care with everything he does. Being "foodies" we were compelled to try several other of the local restaurants, but really didn't find anything that compared with the food here.

The room was beautiful, bed very comfortable, and the bathroom well-stocked with organic soaps, shampoos and lotions. We left our balcony door open at night and were lulled by the sounds of the waves.

Suenos Tulum is near the end of the beach road, an easy bike ride to the entrance of the Sian Ka'an preserve. The road is very quiet compared to closer to town where there is more "action." It was easy to walk or bike to other restaurants/bars up the road if we wished to do so.

The proprietors were lovely, amazing people who have put their hearts into creating Suenos Tulum. Everything has been constructed by hand using Mayan sensibilities and techniques, including making the paint colors from natural sources such as plants and insects. While we were there they were completing the second floor of a stone building, with local stone, and each stone raised up with a pulley and placed by hand. The wooden structures are made from regional hardwoods.

In summary, I would recommend Suenos Tulum for anyone who wants something special and different, along with peace, quiet, romance, beauty, and a meaningful connection with the place and people who created it. If you want to be in the "action" it might not be for you - the restaurant serves only guests and although they make great cocktails, there is no bar. It's truly a short drive to plenty of action, though. There were several roadside restaurants with late-night scenes, along with a really fun club for dancing - the Sand Bar - that were just minutes away.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms have beautiful ocean views. First floor rooms walk right out to the beach, t...

Suenos was just perfect. We booked a beach suite (ie ground level, so on the sand w/o a view) but the hotel was nearly empty and so they upgraded us to the 2nd floor, Lluvia. The sun streaming in, and the breeze coming off the ocean, not to mention the view of blue, blue sea and sky framed by tropical foliage, were just heaven. The room was verypleasant to be in during the day--the hammock, which i took to be decorative, was actually super comfy to lie in, plus there's a little private balcony where I enjoyed sitting. At night, it could feel a little lonesome--probably because there was noone else staying at the hotel, I could imagine it feeling quite different if the restaurant and other common spaces had has people--so we would take walks along the beach or take a taxi along the beach road to restaurants and bars. The beds were very comfortable. No bugs. Salty water in the shower, but we didn't find it bothersome. The people that run this place are super nice. I'd go back just for them, and their great dogs.
