This is one of those 'secret' places you can't wait to write about, but, worry will change with increased development and more tourists, but, I must hope to encourage others to go so the business will prosper because it's perfect just as it is! This is very rustic, but, if you are happy with the basics, you'll have found a... More

Had such a good experience. Exactly what you'd expect from a beach cabana. A little hut on the beach with a bed and a bug net. So much fun drinking on the beach and meeting other travelers. Have a restaurant in the sand with tasty food and only a short cab or bike ride into town for other restaurants etc.... More

This is a wonderful establishment right on the beach. I was told that it's the only "hotel" owned by locals in the area (all others are owned by Europeans). I say "hotel" because there's a building plus a number of private cabanas. The restaurant and bar staff are very nice and everything is very affordable. A few things to share:... More

We stayed in a hotel room (not one of the cabanas), the room was basic but all we needed for our 3 night stay in Tulum. The beach here is beautiful, there are lounge chairs and a bar with drinks and food. The beach here is larger than at some of the other hotels. The property overall is tropical and... More

This is a nice hotel if you don’t expect too much from it. It has basic accommodation but still fairly clean. We stayed in a room, not the cabañas, which I believe are even more basic. The AC functions for a limited time (7pm to 7am). One amazing thing about this place is its large and not overcrowded beach. It’s... More

Amazing experience but be prepared for basic accomodation-concrete bed with a comfy mattress, modern clean bathroom. Will definitely come back. Lovely food and great atmosphere at the bar. Wide beach, crystal clear water. Nice and helpful staff. Unspoilt. Paradise for backpackers.

Out of town with very little selection for restaurants. When we arrived at our "cabana" I thought the man taking us to our room had to stop by the tool shed. The room consists of a cement floor and a homeless shelteresk bed. One screened window with holes in it that provides zero airflow. No electricity. They nickel and dime... More

Without a reservation I showed up and got a very clean, large room with air conditioning in their hotel for $65 US. They offer an array of accommodations from what I would call VERY rustic cabanas (price is amazing) to simple, clean and affordable rooms with amenities in their hotel. What makes this place a gem is the location! It... More

They are shacks on the beach. If you are looking for more, dont stay here. Anyone reviewing this place at horribly negative clearly had a misunderstanding about the place. The point is, you are paying to be at the beach. Nothing more. You can find a palace for this price in town so go there or a mega resort and... More
