My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel is beautiful and located away from the main bars so not too noisy, however still in walking distance to the nearest busy area. David and Carla who work there were both extremely welcoming, professional and very helpful. We stayed in one of the top floor villas with a view out to sea which was absolutely perfect. I will never forget the sight and sound of the waves lapping up against the shore in the evening! It was a special stay for us and David and Carla ensured that everything we had planned went smoothly! All the staff are professional and tentative, and it really is an exceptional place to stay and fully relax. Make sure to try the shrimp tacos at the hotel - absolutely delicious! If you want a memorable stay, in a beautiful location then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Quite possibly the most beautiful and relaxing stay I’ve ever experienced. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a stay that is reflective of the natural beauty and environment of Tulum and not the all-inclusive resort side. Also the opportunity to see baby sea turtles climb the shore past my room at night is a memory I’ll have forever.
