We stayed the week between Christmas and New Years. The eco resort was exactly what we expected. It was low key yet inviting, nestled on a small property awash with coconut palms and fragrant flowers. No TV's No boom boxes, just quiet evenings and a gentle breeze. This was truly an eco experience, and as expected the power went off at 11 pm or so and returned in the morning as the staff arrived, The room were simple but comfortable and supplied us with all we required. The other guests were friendly and often met in the wonderful on site restaurant in the evening for dinner and drinks. We got to know the staff well and found them helpful and charming. "Everyone must try the woodfired pizza's at lunch and the delicious "mexicana for breakfast. The beach is mere feet from the Cabanas and restaurant. Comfortable seating and grass umbrellas were always available and a cold beer or snack could easily be delivered by Carlos of Beatrice. Manuel the manager was a font of knowledge and helpful in every way. We loved our entire experience and plan to return this spring. I have never been so relaxed in my life and felt the cares of the world melt away so swiftly. Thanks to all of you there who made this a most "om" like experience.

This people are not to trust they give you one rate on the phone and then when you arrive they change the rate to a higher one!
They are real crooks! the restaurant is OK but highly over priced for Mexico.
The end up respecting the quoted price but not the days we booked and we had to move for the rest of the days to another hotel which ended up expending what we didn't plan to.
Its so unfortunate they are misusing the OM concept as this is a far from OM as it gets!

Unfortunately we do not remember your stay with us.It is kind of unusual because we do not quote rates over the phone because they almost never work at the beach.We only accept reservation via internet and that remaining balance is always respected.We are happy you enjoyed our food though.

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!

We stayed here with a group of old friends for a week. The OM is on a very beautiful piece of beach pretty far down the beach road almost to the biosphere reserve.
First, the positive. Location was awesome! The food in the restaurant was tasty, although I found it a little overpriced. The style and decor of the Om is really cool, the rooms are regular old Mexican cement rooms, but they put a dark varnished wood over it and it looks really beautiful. There are buddha statues all over the place, adding a relaxing vibe. The restaurant and bar "main cabana" were absolutely beautiful. The housekeeping was immaculate. The owners (managers? I never really figured it out) were young and fun.
The not-so-good:
I too had a porta-potty smelling experience. The electricity does go off at midnight, which is kind of fun in a way (bring a flashlight if you like to read in bed!), however when you wake up in a hot smelly room it isn't so nice. I think what really happens is the septic tank gets pumped once a week or so and that is when it really stinks to high heaven. Also I like to sleep with a fan on me so I was pretty disappointed. People have to understand, however, that these little hotels are run on generators and septic tanks. Smells and lack of electricity are part of staying in a non-resort type place in the Yucatan. I did, however, think that the Om overcharged for their rooms. If you don't offer things like ocean views or electricity 24/7 you shouldn't charge $140 a night.
Another thing that was kind of strange at the Om was the key situation. My friend and I were given one key, they said it was the only one. Our one key only worked about half the time. We kept having to get a worker to come let us in our room! Another friend locked her key in the room and had no way to get in as late at night the staff goes home and there is only a security guard!
The beach "club" consists of about 6 loungers (cushioned, comfy) with umbrellas and a waiter. Buy a bottle of rum in town to doctor up the drinks, they're pretty weak. The website claimed that there is cable, which is impossible being that there are no TV's (fine with me!) There is WiFi, but there are no safes at the Om so I would not bring my laptop, I wouldn't call it the most secure hotel in the world. It seems that they are making improvements to the Om. Perhaps in a couple of years it will be nicer.
I had a love-hate relationship with the Om. I might stay there again, but probably just for a day or two. There are so many little hotels in the Tulum area there is no reason to tie yourself to one for the whole time you are there. Stay one or two nights to get into the groove of the area, then explore!

Tulum is a wonderful place, low key atmosphere, great beach. The Om Tulum has a fantastic restaurant wich I would recommend throughly, esepcially the pizzas. Do not stay there though! Where else would you pay US$140 plus tax per night an have no electricity between midnight and 8am? Its a joke, presumably under the guise of being eco-friendly, although their savings on electricity are not refelcted in the price, a nice little earner for the hotel. We couldnt sleep all night it was so hot. Nobody even told us about this on check-in. Also on checking in (3pm) we were told to wait an hour for our room as there was still someone staying in the room......well get them out on time then!!! The place is a joke, eat there but stay elsewhere....

We understand that The Tulum eperience is not for everyone.This is one of the reasons why we make it very clear on our website and confirmation emails,what a guest should expect.We do everything we can to inform our guests of what to expect and that we are sorry if you did not take the time to read the booking terms and property description.
$140 per night in christmas high season,in comparison to other locations is very reasonable.We are on one of the nicest beaches in the caribbean.No light or noise pollution.We are around 7km from the town of tulum and self sufficient .We generate our own electricity,water is trucked in,sewage has to be trucked out.Unfortunately these things are expensive.
