I stayed here for two nights in November, in one of the back, inland-side-of-the-street rooms. Like most places in Tulum, this is a casual operation--I would say its website looks a bit slicker than the place actually is, though the place is certainly not a dump by any means. I've visited a lot of the hotels in Tulum, and these rooms are still some of the best-priced on the beach, with nice details and _lots_ of space. I think my room had screens on the windows, which was good. One night I had electricity for the fan, and another I didn't, but it was actually a little chilly when I was there. Beds were very comfortable.
You do have to walk through the jewelry shop and past the owners' own private house to get to the beach. And post-Hurricane-Dean, the beach situation here is a little weird--a lot of the sand around the foundation of the hotel (and all the others in this section) got washed away. There's still plenty of beach--you just have to clamber down a little bit to reach it, which is awkward, and not particularly scenic.
I also have to say my water pressure was truly grim. Not the world's most thrilling showers, but then I've only had two memorably good showers in all of the Yucatan, so...
