I have been going to Tulum for years now, and the past two times I went I stayed at Ahau. It is by far the most beautiful hotel around and the service is impeccable. The beach is like a private oasis, perfect for unplugging and relaxing. I highly recommend this hotel for a romantic get-away or just if you need...

I've been coming to Tulum for the past 10 years and have seen the area develop over the years. This is one of the nicest places to stay in terms of design, service, and overall hospitality. You can be a beach bum and relax all day or sign up for everything from kite surfing to cenote exploring. People staying here...

Noise was over by 10 most nights but you couldn't hear it anyways most of the time. If we ever go to Tulum again, will definitely stay...

It was great! The location was prime, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent! Get the avacado toast for breakfast and the smoked marlin empanadas for lunch. Delish! Rafael was great -- he always made sure we had a drink in our hands on the beach. Amazing mojitos! I did yoga three times while I was...

This is our second time to Ahua and we will be back again! The beach is amazing and the rooms are really nice and right on the beach! The best part, however, is the staff. The waiters in the restaurant Johnny, Jorge, and Martin were all so helpful and sweet and Marco treated us like we were part of the...

The staff were all amazingly friendly and helpful and helped arrange a wonderful half day trip,snorkeling and going to the Cenotes. Snorkeling was amazing. A...
