Booked the Om Tulum to end a cultural holiday to Mexico City and the Yucatan peninsula. Wanted a secluded beach away from the crowds and Cancun style hotels.
The beach is a beautiful silver sand but not very secluded as the little hotels and cabanas are built very close together along this length of beach from Tulum to the Bio Reserve.
The little thatched Mayan style 2-storey blocks are rather basic for the price one has to pay. A little more hanging and drying hooks/cupboards would be useful and some toiletries and better quality towels are essential. Unfortunately the water heater was playing up and you needed to request hot water and allow 10 minutes before having a shower - BUT no-one told us!
The staff are very helpful and pleasant but check your bill as they add on 10% tip even if you have been tipping as you go along - this is actually fairly typical in most of Mexico we found.
The restaurants from the other little hotels along the beach offer a nice range of alternative venues for all the meals as nothing is included at Om. An interesting experience for all the family!
