Playa Esperanza is a charming eco-resort, exceptionally located along the pristine beaches of Tulum. Booking was simple and hassel-free. I emailed with Jenny and she responded promptly with availability. We choose Celia Cruz- a single room with private bath and were delighted to find it was just 15 feet from the beach. Playa Esperanza has a cool vibe- a DJ... More

Playa Esperanza is located, without a doubt, in front of the best Tulum beach. All the beaches in Tulum are beautiful, but at Playa Esperanza is truly something out of a "wish you were here" post card. With it's signature puertas de la esperanza and the biggest coconut palm tree around it is hard not to stop and just admire... More

Nice hotel very well integrated into the environment with little typical houses directly connected to the beach. We stayed two nights in Augustin Lara and Princess (for the kids) which are quite large and conforable houses. The main issue is the hot temperature duing July also during the night with the impossibility to sleep well. As there is no electricity... More

We know Tulum is beautifull, but let me tell you just 2 things; 1- the color of the sea, in this side of the beach, is the most beautifull one from Tulum...the water is more brilliant and transparent...the shades of green glow and the transparency of the shore is inviting and relaxing. The sand is soft cream and you can... More

I spent one night at Playa Esperanza, the common areas, bar and eating area could use some restoration work but the cabinas are ok. If the weather is nice the beach is fantastic. For the price it's a good deal. The staff are on Tulum beat . The fact that there is only electricity in the evening is not inconvenient,... More

Spent the day on the beach and ate our lunch at their restaurant. The hamburger was nice but the water was ridiculously overpriced! The price was not in the menu so we found out when we got the check- 120 pesos for two bottles of water!! (1liter).
