Hotel Residencia La Mariposa
Ranked #77 of 100 Hotels in Tulum
Reviewed 7 December 2012

Small hotel (only 11 rooms) close to the main road of Tulum, but still in a quiet area. It is a 15 minutes drive to the beach by car, 30 minutes by bike. The rooms are spacious, colourful, have a quiet A/C and a good working shower. The only disadvantage is the breakfast, which is the same every day and consists of 2 slices of toast with jam/butter/honey, juice and coffee. The internet is from time to time a little bit slow.

Slept great. A/C is strong and quiet. Lots of homey accents. Great Price, no crawling feelings when i woke up. I especially loved the 3rd floor common area. Lots of fun potted plants and views of the pueblo. Be honest. You want to stay in a place with A/C. The beach cabanas are nice, but theres mosquitos and no A/C. This is a unique mexican experience. Friendly staff.

Room Tip: Try the third floor with 2 doubles. Lots of out door sitting area.

My room at the Hotel Residencia La Mariposa was surprisingly spacious especially when considering its very low rate. With a sitting room, kitchenette, sleeping area, balcony, and of course bath room, it felt more like an apartment. The bathroom was relatively small in proportion to the rest of the room, however. More important than its size and cost was its comfort. The air conditioner was a savior from the heat, humidity and thunderstorms of a June afternoon in the Yucatan. Even though I initially had some difficulty locating the hotel,(being disoriented in the residential area Tulum), it is only a block off the main road through Tulum. Once found, I had no more trouble getting back again. From the balcony it was delightful to see Mexican culture unfold on the road below as locals conducted their regular routines. The hotel attendant was friendly, helpful and knew enough English. In the mornings he had continental breakfasts ready to go. I was happy with this hotel but there was one small blot I will mention is and that is I saw some tiny ants scurrying about in one corner of the room but it wasn’t too big of a deal. I would have no problem being a guest at Hotel Residencia La Mariposa in the future.

Room Tip: The hotel can be confusing to find but remember it is only one block of the main road in Tulum towar...

This basic,clean and affordable hotel is one block east fo the "downtown strip". The room I had included a diningtable and chairs and a kitchenette that I didn't use since I only stayed one night and ate my meals downtown. I would definitely stay here again

This is a very nice and clean hostel on the outskirt of Tulum. Dirt cheap. Take a taxi to the beaches, Jose the taxidriver lives next door, and will be happy to take you there. Tulum beach 50 pesos and to Zebra beach, one of the best in Tulum 90 pesos

Room Tip: Try 3rd floor

This was my second visit to La Mariposa, I've stayed several nights there while diving in the area. It is located in a Tulum neighborhood a couple of blocks off the main street (307). There is normal neighborhood noise such as barking dogs, and music but nothing that has ever kept me awake at night. Tulum is authentic compared to beach places and resorts which tend to isolate you from the real and engaging Mexican experience. Walking in the area in the evenings is safe and pleasant . My room was huge and always very clean and bright and included a kitchenette and great dining table. The WiFi works great in my room or the lobby! The people are always very nice and helpful. This place is a absolute bargain compared to the beach places 2 miles away. I wish it had a pool but then again I don't spend much time at the hotel anyway.
