Just back from a fantastic trip to Tulum -- Teetotum was everything prior posters state and more. Hip modern decor, friendly and helpful staff, relaxing courtyard and roofdeck, clean rooms, hot water and AC when you need it and large screen windows and ceiling fan for when it's cool enough that you don't...
I hadn't realized before coming to Tulum that NONE of the beach hotels have power/electricity except what they can generate from wind and solar. Perhaps some folks would prefer that rusticity, but personally, at the end of a long day at the beach, I LOVED having light to read by, a cold drink, and reliable wifi. Did NOT miss TV at all.
Rooms have a small fridge and 2 small bottles H20 daily. Chedraui store, like a Mexican Wal-Mart, has toiletries/clothing/groceries/alcohol/bank machines, is just down the road. Abundant clean towels including beach towels to use.
We had a car which was a necessity for seeing Coba ruins and going to the beach each day (we did bike it on one cooler day but it's about 20-30min).
Food was great -- there's a TON of restaurants to try but the hotel does a great job with a menu which has a multicultural feel and fresh daily specials. Continental breakfast was included, although we missed it two mornings because we were up and out of there early. If I had to mention one quibble about Teetotum it would be that breakfast didn't really start at 8am as advertised...closer to 9-9:30 in actuality. Mostly was an issue due to craving coffee first thing.
I can't wait to go back to Tulum, and after whole week of scoping out the beach, I don't think I'd want to stay anywhere else.
Thank you, Richard, for all the helpful tips and great stories!!! Give Dali a pet for me!!!
