I arrived late at night, they arranged for transport from Cancun airport. It was pricey but being a last minute trip, I appreciated the help. Checkin was super easy and the attendant walked me to my room. The room itself was very clean, spacious and of course I had a private balcony with a jacuzzi on there. It was great that the temp was perfect so it felt more like a tiny pool lol. I spent a lot of time in there. I literally swam in all three pools around the property. The one on the ground floor has a swim up bar. The rooftop pools were very nice. I was able to walk around the area very easy. Loved the wine bar about 5 minutes walk from there and also the Thai restaurant 10 minutes walk. If you don’t wanna walk, there are cabs right at the entrance of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this place.

6/10 Good

We liked the spaciousness of the rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They are still working on building the hotel, and therefore not everything is finished. Getting to the hotel was a little challenging, and the surrounding area is very much in poverty. It is difficult to appreciate your view when you are looking at extreme poverty conditions. The room is very clean; however, we booked the deluxe two bedroom suite, and the rooftop tub was not clean enough for us to enjoy.

Very accommodating!
The hotel is off the beaten path but very nice. It’s in an area where locals live but it’s walking distance to the Main Street. If you want to chill it has everything, including 3 pools, a gym a bar and restaurant. You don’t have to go into town. Our room had a small private jacuzzi!

10/10 Exceptional

Loved this hotel! The first shuttle had trouble finding I think due to construction but didn’t have issues with any of our other taxis finding the hotel during trip. The room was HUGE and clean - came with a beautiful deck with a mini pool that I wasn’t expecting a kitchen. The pool and surrounding area was great (Tulum jungle vibes) and we didn’t deal with any construction issues at all. The staff was great. The best part was the room service/restaurant food - was beyond my expectations everything was so fresh and reasonable priced! My favorite was the avocado toast for breakfast. Hotel isn’t walkable to anywhere need to take a taxi but that wasn’t an issue for this trip - just a heads up if you are looking for walkability! Highly recommend Waves Tulum!

The staff is patient, caring and always willing to help. This place is totally worth it. We even got upgraded to a penthouse and we loved it. Definitely would come back here. The property is still under construction but the workers are so silent and you barely see them or hear any noise. It’s an amazing place to be
