“Amazing place, amazing people!!!!!”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

It´s my second time at Teetotum, I love this place, the room is gorgeous and spacious! free of mosquitos, AC, love that king size bed, the bathroom is perfect, the swimming pool is so nice and cute, the terrace is very nice to eat, drink or reed, great place to enjoy yourself and it is so close to the beach and downtown, awesome location, also you can use the bicycles for free, internet is so efficient, room service was my favorite. My son and I had a wonderful time. I love the atmosphere and the service, for a fair price, my favorite place in Tulum. I Miss this place, the people and the food that is so delicious!.

Room Tip: To me the first floor is the best, is tranquil and I slept like a baby! the little terrace is so cut...

I loved Teetotum because the rooms are adorable, the food is delicious and an excellent value, the air con is heaven sent, and there are free bikes and snorkel gear to use. It is a quick ride to the beach. I've been in tulum for three weeks, at several different places from high to low prices, and this place was definitely my favorite. Richard is hilarious and helpful. Highly recommended.

lauren, hello!
thank you for your kind review. we hope your continued trip to the further reaches of the jungle proved adventurous and safe (no snails, parasites, etc). and thanks for sharing such humorous stories about your lives in l.a and minnesota, they were a blast. we really hope you return quickly to tulum and continue the dialogue. haven't laughed so hard in awhile- the faux shaman stories, rock.
so come back- we offer a discount to returning guests.
peace and love,

I stayed here for 5 nights on my own, all the staff made me feel very welcome.

The rooms are large, and very nicely laid out, with fans and air-con.

It's got a very laid back vibe, with locals passing by for a drink.

It's approximately a 10 min cycle to the beach.

Overall, a great little place to stay.

This review is long overdue (sorry Richard!!!). My friend and I were in Tulum in early February and stayed at Teetotum. Our room was super comfortable and charming. Room was also very clean. The food was great and the staff were really nice. All around relaxed vibe. The hotel was located in between the beach and town (perfect!). We could ride the bikes provided by the hotel to the beach or walk to dinner in town.

Richard went above and beyond to be an amazing host (food recommendations, good conversation, etc.). He really made our trip to be honest.

Excited to come back again- Thanks for a great time!

We enjoyed 5 nights at Teetotum. Richard and his staff were great hosts, helpful with reliable information about local beaches and restaurants. The room and patio were comfortable to hang out in, a truly relaxing experience. They even brought a little bed for our daughter. Can't wait for a return visit!

If you are looking for a way to fall into (and in love with) the Tulum vibe quickly - Teetotum is where you need to be. We stayed there for about a week in late May - and what an awesome stay we had.

The hotel has only 4 rooms, and the competent and incredibly warm and friendly staff makes you feel welcome and cared for. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, beautifully designed (expect trendy minimalism, not opulence) and have everything you need for a great Tulum experience (including A/C which, if you are going during the summer, is a huge benefit).

There is a wonderful atmosphere around the restaurant and bar of Teetotum, and the guests are an eclectic mix of travellers and long-time Tulum'ers - all of whom have interesting stories to share. Yet the space is open enough that if all you want is just to relax with a quiet drink after an exhausting beach day, you will be perfectly fine doing so.

Richard, the owner, is super nice, and will make sure you have everything you need. He is also an inexhaustible source of knowledge about Tulum and the area.

We (and our dog) had an amazing time at Teetotum!

hola amigos!
hey, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. we are always pleased when our guests blend in with the locals who visit the restaurant and bar. it makes for a cool vibe when the entire operation is working on all levels. so it's cool to see when our hotel guests notice the locals and exchange ideas, plans, info etc.
so come back again and maybe our minimal style will have morphed into opulence and trump like attention to detail!
thank you again and when you are back from the middle east and considering another mexican jaunt, please consider us. we'd love to see you both and the pooch!
best,
richard, dali and teetotum staff!

If you want to pay through the roof for one of the new high end boutiques on the beach - fine. But true Tulum sits in the Teetotum experience. While not a 5 star hotel it is a 5 star experience. The food is superb, the rooms are nice but most of all the ethos is supreme. You will feel relaxed and chilled out in minutes.

Sure they may not be on the beach, but you are a 5 min bike ride to the best beaches in all of Tulum. If you want a resort experience - fine. But then go to Cancun or Playa. Tulum is about finding hidden beaches, exploring ruins, diving in cenotes and more than anything hanging like you are in the middle of the movie "The Beach."

This was the second time at Teetotum for my now fiance and I :). and I will tell you, it keeps getting better.
