It felt like we were hidden in the woods the whole time, I loved the design and layout of the place, the beach club is awesome, great views of the ocean, the beach was amazing.
Restaurant/ bar staff was a little unorganized and unfriendly, always had to wait too long to get a check or for drinks to arrive. Bellhops were nice but concierge could have been more friendly in the beginning, we didn't get a map of Tulum until we were checking out.
I severely sprained my ankle everybody was getting there feet hurt NO lights at night when walking IT is a nightmare !
I love the attention to working in harmony with the environment whilst still providing a luxurious stay. Also the food is incredible.
The bed was a bit uncomfortable
- The beach is beautiful - Central location - Great margaritas
- smells of sewage throughout - walk past common bathrooms to get to eating areas - room was damp -temperatures drop over night, no blankets etc in room to facilitate weather change -very average level of staff service - we stayed in an ocean front villa- the bed was approx king single in size. Tiny and disappointing
The location was good and very close to the beach. The restaurant was excellent, and the Beach Club setting was also very good, with comfortable places to sit, eat, and drink in the shade of many beautiful palm trees.
I would rate the rooms as poor. The air conditioner didn't function, but luckily the sea breeze kept things reasonably cool. There was almost no place to put you stuff. Suitcases had to be placed mainly on the floor. The porch was scantily furnished, with only several chairs and a small table. They were unable to provide additional seating. I understand things are pricey in Tulum in December, but the quality of the rooms was well below what I would expect for the price we paid. The picture of the rooms shown in Booking.com was very misleading. Lastly, this is primarily a place for 20 to 30 year olds. I would not stay there again.
The general setup is very nice, though not every cabin is created equal. Once we changed rooms, things were very pleasant.
We weren't enamoured with the kitsurfers on the beach and in the sea, spoiling what could have been a very peaceful, relaxing setting. Out of our two days there, one day was dominated by kitsurfers doing their thing. Nice in Canun, not so much here.
All of Tulum is heavenly, but papaya playa is a perfect place to take it all in. Splurge for the ocean view and. Pins colada.
Beds could be cozier. And bigger! Rooms are different which is fun, but the variance of what you can get for the same price can feel a bit unfair. Luckily, they are often willing to switch your room if it's possible.
Loved it all, the setting is amazing and staff outstanding.
Rooms have to be upgraded to circulate air and eliminate moisture.
Staff, location, size of room, comfort. . are all excellent.
Slightly loud live music from nearby bar late Friday but was bearable.
Location. Right on the beach
Over priced for the facilities provided. The huts are nice but very basic in the interior (which is ok for the correct price)
beach, food, staff, no plugs in hut, wifi everywhere, peace and quiet
spiders, mosquitos, etc. in the hut, but this comes with the location - if you don't like that choose a regular hotel
The bar and especially the Music was great ++++. The location on a beach. The jungle nature feel. The design of the bar and dance/DJ area.
Our Jungle Cabana was too small, could work for a single but for a couple very cramped, and bit dark, nowhere to relax inside and a porch area which was not that appealing. Would of been better maybe if we had chosen a different option to the jungle Cabana ?
We liked the location, the feel and the surroundings.
- Very nice location - very clean - excellent food - awesome beach and recreation areas - nice staff in principle
1. You can place a deposit at reception so you don't have to pay in cash in case you eat or drink something at their bar or restaurant. You just have to sign the bill that is given to you by the waiter. The tip is always not included. And here comes the fraud: In some cases they add an 10% to 15% tip by themselves without your knowledge and after you already signed you bill and after we already gave a good tip in cash! We had this 3 times and I have noticed it at the end of our stay because the invoice in total seemed very high to me. And I knew why after I double-checked the bills (they give you the opportunity to review all costs during your stay). 2. In total it is too expensive for that what you get there. They can easily offer the rooms/cabanas/casitas for half the price. It wouldn't ruin them - far from it.
Location and privacy
showers need some work in cabana 27
booked a casita right on the water - it was amazing! we had air conditioning which was nice and it was really a true getaway with no wifi in the rooms and no televisions. amazing views and the ocean is absolutely breathtaking. recommend the restaurants around the area; some really cool spots.
prices are high in tulum in general in the hotel zone. bring good mosquito repellent when using the wifi in the common areas
A lovely place to stay and hang out :)
Since the little casitas are right at the ocean it was a bit stinky at the time we were there - I guess that was fault of the mass of seaweed...not really something you can blame the hotel for though!
Nothing, everything was fantastic.
Friendly staff, fantastic views and proximity to water (20 yards) - lots of beautiful people and international vibe. Excellent restaurants within 5-10 minute cab ride, and close to town for more local authentic experiences.
Poor construction - cabana structure holding hammock crashed down on me (I guess I should lose some weight!) so be cautious at Papaya Playa. Management team did make things right and moved us to a different room. They handled the situation well.
loved our new casita, the beach, the food and the restaurant
some of the staff were not so friendly
Beach Club great with good DJ,s and live music
Beds are terrible and uncomfortable. Rooms a bit like hobbit houses. My son went out too far snorkeling and when I tried to find help there was no one to be found. Found a SUP and paddled out and on return got questioned why I took board by activities dude and he seemed more worried about any damage to his board than my sons well being! A place where selfies more important than having a good time!
Friendliness, cleanliness, being on the beach- Eco consciousness. Tours, activities on offer- really quality experiences - can't wait to go back
That bikes aren't for rent from property it's way cheaper for travelers than cabs
We had a great stay here, you feel like you are in paradise the beach is amazing. The rooms are also gorgeous with excellent views.
straight on the beach, the restaurant and bar area are a slice of paradise. It keeps you in contact with nature, it has character and a special atmoshpere
nothing in particular. I liked the fact of it being basic, with low electricity, and not all the comforts of a luxury place but maybe some people wouldn't be up for it.
