This is a hard review to write. I had a lovely time during my stay in Tulum at the Teetotum. But, I must be honest. This hotel would have been perfect for me if I was still in my 20s and 30s. But, sadly, I'm not. And, in actuality it appears to be somewhat of a hangout for folks in their 20s and 30s.
The staff, including Lydia, Eva, Diego, etc. were incredibly friendly and helpful, as was Richard, the owner, and the other folks who were about the place. And the food was fabulous! Really, really good!
As far as being a stone's throw from the beach, I'd like to see that stone thrower! You need to either bicycle (and you can borrow from the hotel) or take a cab. But the town was within walking distance and there's a large supermarket essentially across the road.
For me, the lighting in the room was not good. There was not a comfortable chair to read in with a good light. If I wanted to read, the only place was on the bed. I stripped the bed after the first night and used two comforters as mattress pads to get the bed to be a little softer, which helped. I had to buy an alarm clock so I could get up in time to catch my flight out, as there is no one around at night.
Again, I had a lovely time, but I think I'm about the age at which I'd like a little extra comfort.
Oh, I must add that the price is great for both the rooms and the food and the happy hours. So, it's a mixed review. I don't think I'd go back, but I would easily recommend it to some of my younger friends.
