    Nice rooms, great location and unbeatable value for money

    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.

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

    A beautiful place to relax!

    We spent three nights at Cabanas Tulum and loved every minute. It was the most relaxing time, where we just lay on the beach all day. The staff were amazing - incredibly helpful and friendly from the minute we arrived until we left. I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay here.

    Wonderful Stay!

    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.

    Beach Front Rooms Best Option

    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 tip: Not Applicable

    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!

    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!

    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).

    perfect vacation

    if you stay at the superior beach front rooms-that's, probably, one of the best properties on the beach. The second floor rooms with the third floor private sunroof- can't beat that! This portion of the hotel is new, and except for 1or 2 extra shelves in the bathroom, I would not add anything else. The breakfast is great. The lunch and dinner is on the pricey side. The staff are great. It's a great location along the great,not crowded, beach-not too close to the main strip, but not too far either. Free bikes, if they are available at the time, are the great mode of transportation. If have a chance, bike further south to the Natural Reserve(20 min South). This is the real pristine beach-free of any rocks/or reefs/no people at all. Would recommend that to my friends in a heartbeat.

    had a great week

    This is our first time in Mexico and we loved all of it. Really nice beach, hotel and staff - wouldn't have changed a thing. We liked the low key, no high rise natural place. We rented a car and ate meals in Tulum and on the beach, visited ruins, snorkeled at Half Moon Bay and Akumal. We visited Sian Kan Nature reserve too. Not a good hotel for children.
