We have traveled extensively and have never had as caring and friendly a staff (across the board) as that at Ahau Tulum. Mark is disabled: they made sure on booking that we were in a room that was easily accessible to the beach and to the restaurant.....it didn't disappoint! We stayed in a junior suite (beach level) and walked down... More

I have been traveling to Tulum for many years and usually stay elsewhere. This trip I was with friends and joined them at Ahau. Leo and Paulina are at the front office almost everyday and are amazing people. They were ther for all of our needs and met each request with a big yes.

The quant little beachfront hotel was everything we'd hoped it would be. Truly green this entire place is built from logs, and other materials indigenous to the area which is just so cool. The food was exceptional, the rooms beautiful, and waking up each morning to the crashing of the waves out your front door was beyond! We will be... More

I took my mom for some relaxing holidays with her dog that she can't live without. Leo at the reception gave us a warm welcoming. We rented the Bali Hot, its a small but very cute one bed room. My only worries were that it did not have A/C because of my Mom. I didn't think it was necessary but... More

It's by far the best hotel in Tulum, luxury to the highest standards. Manuel and his team are amazingly friendly and make all your dreams become true. There's nothing that couldn't be asked - just amazing!! Manuel, thank you so much again for everything!

Perfect little paradise right in the beach. We stayed on one if the cheaper Bali beach huts, utterly delight we chose this over a big soulless house. The huts have outdoor bathrooms, but heavy power hot showers and little rugs in the little hut toilets. Mosquito repellents, incense and after aloe Vera provided. Wait staff were always very kind, and... More

There is a saying in life that things are always better the second time around well that definitely holds true for my second visit to Ahau Tulum. Last time I was here for a wedding didn't have much time to explore this time I definitely did that and it was so so worth it. The staff here at Ahau Tulum... More

“Master Suite beach front was for sure the way to go ;-) Loved everything about our room! Absolutely beautiful!!! We were surprised to have an outdoor shower ;-) Definitely a plus when you have been playing in the ocean or the sand. Both showers... you may be surprised! They only have cold water ;-) Good for you skin and the glow of your skin!!! ;-) So be ready to laugh and yell at the same time as showering ;-) Loved the aloe gel and the organic insect repellant that was placed in our room. ”
