- 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.
Organized, very friendly and efficient staff Beautiful location directly at the beach Great food The Spa - best message ever, with the sound of the ocean in the background You can rent bikes
The mosquitos ;)
The beach in comparison. The high price for the low quality of "eco". the mosquitoes!
Beach Little cabanas Hipster style Very friendly staff Good breakfast
Loved the overall setting. It felt like you were going on an adventure every time you left your cabana. The staff was very accommodating and it was great seeing them out during the full moon party having a good time too.
There was no AC in our first unit so we had to upgrade. Sheets felt very starched and uncomfortable. Even though we were paying quite a bit per night, our unit still did not cover breakfast. Overall felt like a lot of money to be paying for a small level of comfort. I also wished they had bikes available on hand since the hotel is located a bit off the strip.
accomodation. beach - much nicer further up. no nice finishing touches i.e soap bowls for the bathroom etc
Its charming and tasteful. The cabanas/rooms in front of the sea are also the rustic style, however nice and comfortable. Different from what we read on the reviews. Great view. From the restaurant and bar. Good restaurant, bar and beach club. It does not have plugs in the from, so you have to charge your phone in the beach club or the reception. But it was fine buy us. No big complains about that. No AC, but the fans managed well at night. And it was a really hot period. So, you'll be ok. The crew in the restaurant where very friendly, the ones in the reception, not so much. Everyone speaks english. Most of the guest are cool, good looking hipsters/advertising/etc fairly young people. It can be good or a bit annoying, depends on what you feel confy around. NOT for backpackers, look for cheaper and more real cabanas in the north of the beach.
Everything in the hotel is expensive and they charge you extra for anything: Late checkout, plug adaptors, etc. The bar and restaurant are expensive. It overpriced in general. They take advantage of their good taste: it look pretty so we can charge. Also, they give you less in name of 'eco', but is really just a way of making more money. IMPORTANT: They have a Dj on the Beach/bar/restaurant (they are all together) from 12 pm to 6pm who only plays electronic music. If you like, fine. For me it was truly annoying wanting to chill on a paradisiac beach and having a paranoic club song playing along all the time. It kind of ruined for me. And I'm young and enjoy going to clubs, at night though. Not the most beautiful part of the beach. Don't get me wrong, it remains very beautiful, but we saw other ever better looking spots of beach in Tulum. Also, this place has stones when you go in to the sea, so is not only sand, sea and calm waters, you have to watch your step.
the new beach front rooms were amazing. Expensive but lovely.
Get rid of the feral cats, which roamed around the restaurant whilst you were eating.
The cabanas, the fact that it always calm and not crowded, the beauty of the place, the beach and the facilities. Everything was amazing !
the staff the vibe the scenery the food the beach
the mosquito nets the cracks in the walls that let in lizards
Loved the sea breeze, but unfortunately because of the design of the huts it didn't extend into the room. Thank goodness we had a room on the beach, as I would hate to think how warm and stuffy the garden view rooms were.
No cross ventilation in rooms. There was no windows in the bathroom so no breeze going through, an the bathroom smelt when we walked in. The rooms were hot and we had to keep the fan on all night - not eco friendly. Didn't like being bitten by mosquitos when you had to use your computer in the lounge off reception. Didn't like lots of plastic and bottles on the beach. Didn't like the low light in the rooms - made it impossible to read.
The location of this complex was good comparatively however its position on headland meant it was prone to strong winds. I thought the restaurant/bar area was excellent. A pleasant place to sit and unwind at the end of a busy or not so busy day. The full moon parties were a great way to meet people.
I had a "ocean front cabana" which was staggeringly overpriced at US$200 per night. The cabana was wasn't really ocean front at all. It was one back from the true ocean front cabanas although I could directly see the sea from my room. The room was tiny and very basic almost to the point of being run down. Don't expect to find rental bikes here, they don't supply them. In summary, there are much better places to stay along Tulum beach at much better prices. Look around.
We loved the huge beach and the restaurant & lounge areas. Papaya Playa is a great spot to enjoy the beach with a cocktail in hand.
Our ocean view cabana was a bit cramped and was really warm at night. The cool breeze from the ocean didn't seem to make it into the cabana and made it tough to sleep even with the fan on. Also the beach bottom was a bit rocky when swimming.
Loved the fact that it's on the beach and you hear the waves while you are sleeping.
The bungalow's are too small. You can't even fit your suitcase.
