Highs & Lows

  • The vibe is unlike any other hotel in Tulum. I was very impressed with all of the décor details, from rugs in the sand to lamps hanging from palm trees.

  • The curtains are really effective blackout shades, which is great when your room faces the ocean/sunrise.

  • One night during dinner our waitress told us to go to the beach right away because they were releasing baby sea turtles into the ocean. It was the coolest dinner experience ever.

  • The only water available is 100 pesos (roughly $5 USD) for a bottle. It’s hot out and it would be great if water were more readily available to guests.
