    Would recommend Mon, Nov 23, 2015
    Amazing stay at Cabanas. Everyone is very friendly. Great food at the resort and in the area. They recommend Manuel for all diving/snorkling excursions and he is wonderful. Definitely a must stay.

    Such a great location, we fell in love with this hotel and with Tulum. So much to do. Food at Ziggy's was very good, staff here and at the hotel so friendly. We can hardly wait to return.

    One week to (start to) experience the Riverera Maya

    Would recommend Sun, Oct 12, 2014
    This trip and hotel were fantastic. To all the staff, the perfect location, and the beautiful hotel, nothing could have been better. Breakfast every morning at the hotel was delicious, and included - great bonus! The entire staff was welcoming, happy, and ready to assist in any way possible. Maiya, Freddy, and Candy were particularly wonderful, but everyone was tremendous. We ate in town and on the hotel strip. Food in town is authentic and amazing. If you want to spend a lot of time in town or at sites in the area I highly recommend renting a car. Taxi rides start to add up. We didn't this time but definitely will next time. Nothing could have been better at Cabanas though one thing to note. If you stay at The Beach you get beach service and your own beach poofs. If you stay at Cabanas you will have to go to Ziggy's to get these which is open to the public. Other than that, nothing could have been better. We will definitely be back to Cabanas/The Beach Tulum!

    Dining

    Eating in town is much cheaper, even with cabs, then the restaurants on the hotel strip. Plus it's true, authentic coastal Mexican food. So good!

    Nice rooms, great location and unbeatable value for money

    Would recommend Sat, Aug 2, 2014
    We stayed in a beachfront cottage at Cabanas Tulum for 5 nights in July 2014. Overall, we loved it. Right on the beach, with breathtaking views of the turquoise blue sea. Thought the room was very nice, and loved the rustic feel of the bathroom (but with all modern amenities). Room came with its own balcony with easy chairs and a hammock. You can sleep with the door open at night if you want to the sea breeze, or draw the heavy curtains if you want to shut out all morning light (very effective). The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Esp. Aubrey, and also Maya at the reception. Couple of minor quibbles. - The Internet connection is nonexistent in the beachfront cottages. Was available only at the lobby, and slow/spotty at that. - They recycle towels, even if you throw them on the floor (in the US, that is usually a sign that you want them replaced). - The heavy light-out curtains in the rooms need cleaning - looked like they had not been cleaned ina long time. - There was a lot of seaweed in the sea close by (in front of The Beach Tulum) for most of our stay. Cabanas Tulum is right next to its sister concern, The Beach Tulum. The latter has more nicely appointed rooms, but one would assume you ware not going to such a gorgeous location to spend your time inside. Otherwise, the amenities are nearly the same. GIven that Cabanas is almost 1/2 the cost (USD 215/night) compared to The Beach (USD 400/night), I believe Cabanas is considerably better value for money. When/if we go back to Tulum, we will definitely consider Cabanas Tulum as the place to stay.

    Dining

    Two restaurants within longish walking distance of Cabanas Tulum, Restaurare and Shiva, had excellent food.

    Wonderful Stay!

    Would recommend Wed, Jan 22, 2014
    We stayed at the Cabanas Tulum for five nights. It is the perfect hotel to relax and unplug. The decor is simple and the furnishings sparse with a organic quality. The room and shower are large and inviting. Breakfast is delicious and the staff is very helpful and genuinely kind. I especially loved having the beach at your doorstep and hearing the robust sounds of the waves throughout the night.

    Dining

    Appetizers at Ziggy's are very good!

    Beach Front Rooms Best Option

    Would recommend Fri, May 3, 2013
    Hotel's reservation agent is only available via email and isn't prompt in responding to emails so I missed out on a beachfront cabana and had to stay in the second row of rooms off the beach. These "second row" rooms are very basic and no frills. Location of hotel is good so good restaurant, yoga, shop options within walking distance, but I would only recommend staying here if you have a beach front cabana. If you don't stay beach front, they don't allow you to use the hotel's pool and you're treated as second class. The front desk agent most days was a young Mexican girl whose English was not good and it was a struggle to get answers to questions with her and she was often confused with basic inquiries. I found concierge in the beachfront guest area who spoke wonderful English and was an amazing help, but I found her only by chance. Hotel otherwise offered no activity recommendations and did not even have a decent area map to give to guests which was disappointing since this was my first visit to Tulum. Being more customer service oriented and hiring people who speak both Spanish and English fluently would be a marked improvement.

    Dining

    Restaurant recommendations: Mezzanine (for happy hour) overlooking beach a 10 min bike ride away, Hartwood, Casa Banana, Posada Margarita and Casa Violeta for dinner. Activities: Drive to nearby Akumal and swim with giant sea turtles and have guide take you to cenote (underground limestone cave) for snorkeling. Be sure to rent bike and check out shops and nearby properties in and out of town.

    Absolutely fabulous!

    Would recommend Thu, Feb 21, 2013
    We arrived late at night and on the way to the room we figured that was a great hotel just because of the fantastic pool. Our room was minimal decor with king bed, vent and air-con during the night; a balcony facing the beach and stair to a terrace; every night we looked to the stars before bedtime. The restaurant had great, delicious and sofisticated food with friendly waiters bilingual speakers and always there to serve you with a big and honest smile. Not to mentioned that our experience in Playa was as we expected: nothing to see but tourists and one famous street full with restaurants that we did not care much! We will comeback to this hotel and we definitely recomend!!!

    Beach holiday magic!

    Would recommend Sat, Aug 25, 2012
    Delightful hotel, not too big, on a fabulous beach which never seems busy even though hotel fully booked . We had a beach-front room (large and comfortable but don't expect phone and fridge etc) - pure escapism with 4 steps on to the beach and the unforgettable sight in the moonlight of a turtle coming up to lay its eggs! The staff are warm, friendly and helpful and the food is very good (don't miss the breakfasts!). Lots of interesting things to do away from the beach including exploring Mayan ruins at Tulum and Coba and don't miss a trip to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sian Ka'an (loved floating down the canal to the next fresh water cenote).
