    Good Wifi, Hot Water, Smelly Bed

    This is the 5th hotel I've stayed in Quintana Roo area but the first time my bed and pillows smelled like a sweaty man has been on it previously and the smell soaked into the mattress or something. I don't think it was due to the humidity in the area. My room type was "Superior room with one king bed". It's on the second floor with a very cute balcony and private staircase. The interior of the room is very basic however, with a fridge, air conditioner, ceiling fan, an old couch, a round table, no microwave, and no TV. For me it's fine because I only go back to sleep. The fact that it is really close to a Super Aki supermarket is nice but there is no kitchenette for cooking anyways. What I really enjoyed is the hot water for shower!! It gets really hot really fast. Half of the hotels I've stayed in the Q.R. area barely have hot water, or takes forever to heat up. It was a 17 minutes walk from the ADO terminal.

    This a great property. People were very nice and always very accommodating. Beautiful pool. Small number of guests so very peaceful. Excellent location to the town of Tulum and close to the beach. Would definitely return again and recommend it to others. A good value.

    The place was REALLY nice. That being said what we rented onlive wasn't what the property tried to check us into. It was due to a computer error. Expedia and the hotel both expected us to just be okay sith the downgrade or us pay the difference. When we booked online we selected a room with a full kitchen that slept 3. At check in we were took to a 12X12 room with 2 twin beds no kitchen, tv, or anything. About 2 1/2 hours later on the phone with Expedia we were told pay a lot more additional to the hotel and Expedia would make it right. We did this and unfortunately it took the past 10 days and probably 14 hours of phone calls to finally get the refund. We haven't seen it yet. I would stay again but NEVER without knowing exactly what room it was in advance. I would only rent it inperson. The hotel refuses to answer the phone when Expedia called and this is why it took soooo many days. They didn't care about copies of confirmations or the emails it clearly listed a room with a full kitchen. The people who worked the front desk acted like they cared but had no say on anything only the manager who you never would see. Beautiful property just online printing errors with the room amenities made our stay very frustrating. Thankfully the online errors have been fixed.

    nice property, room not good

    property is pretty with lots of trees and greenery and a scenic pool area. there was always a place to park. the night desk clerk at check-in was very very helpful and went above and beyond. there is a complimentary drinking water cooler at the check-in desk but at night it was empty. i was unable to contact the property by phone before check-in, and hotels.com was unable to reach them either, which would have been unfortunate if i had any issues finding the property or checking in. the room i had (cheapest room, double bed) was extremely bare and sparse, and the bed was hard as a rock (and i normally sleep on a firm mattress). i was only there for 2 nights but i could not have stayed longer. there was a mini fridge provided but it was placed outside the room so it was not secure. there is a small slot window in the bathroom with no screen, looking out into a weird creepy crevice of the building and a wooded area beyond. the room was extremely humid even with the a/c running at 22 degrees C, so it was necessary to have the window open to vent the bathroom. the shower head needed to be replaced (most likely clogged with mineral deposits) because the spray was in all directions and didn't provide enough water pressure despite water pressure at the sink being fine. i also found the temperature to be inconsistent depending upon what i assume is others using water at the same time. the only toiletries provided were a pump container of liquid hand soap at the sink and shower.

    great potentialbut needs to improve upkeep and mgt

    the hotel has a big potential with the layout of its property (parking space, great first impression, spaceous rooms, pool, garden-like embellishment); however, its housekeeping and the general management of the property need to seriously be improved. we were given a room with 1 towel only, despite specifying we are a party of 2; and no toiletries were intially provided in the bathroom/toilet. upon requesting for toiletries, we were given sachets of shampoo, and two bottles of liquid hand soap - one of which we were told to use as a bodywash. receptionist Swami said there's hot coffee at the reception area during breakfast time; but it was not there the next morning. good thing we at least saw it there the second morning. moreover, no hot drinking water is available for other purposes. the pool is not cleaned, evident due to a dark green hue (moss starting to grow on the sides). these lapses were still fine. what was horrible and totally unacceptable were the beddings. we first noticed that the sheets, pillows, and pillow cases smelled like dried sweat - the type that sticks and lingers on your hair, skin, and clothes. this prompted us to pull the outer sheets only to discover that the sheet underneath was with a dried blood stain! it's as if the linens were not changed after someone used them. proper maintenance and housekeeping should be practised to take this otherwise amazing property to its full potential.

    The air conditioning in the room was very good. There was hot water all the time. The room was very clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. A blow dryer in the room would have been good but it wasn’t a deal breaker. We enjoyed our stay.
