It has been about 5yrs since my stay, but I recall it fondly. The price has since doubled much due to the exponential tourism to Tulum. The room was very clean and the property was very pretty. Great location at the quieter end of the beach.

Hola Jason R, Thank you for taking the time to write a review (even 5 years down the line!) Although the prices along the beach have increased - we have to say that we have only enhanced the experience here at Casa de las Olas and still remain value driven. From brand new furnishings, new renovations and upgrades to the...

If you are looking for a "resort experience" (room service, blazing fast wi-fi, 312 cable TV channels), this IS NOT IT! Just move along. BUT if you are looking for a true luxury getaway, you cannot do better than spend some time with Jimmy, Sam, Bear, and Lulu at Casa de las Olas! The staff is superb. The location is...

We had a great time at Casa De Las Olas. Jimmy and Sam and Bear were super hospitable and very friendly. The property itself is lovely with amazing views onto the beach. I'd definitely recommend staying here. It was fun getting to know other people staying at the villa during meal times in the communal areas.

Our review is way overdue, but not without a reason. We spent our last vacation as a family of two at this incredible location. All we wanted is to enjoy each other, the ocean and local food.

We just returned from 10 magical days at CDLO. In doing my research, I read every single review on this site, as well as some others. While not all were 5 stars (most are, of course) I think that anything less than 5 stars in a review is a possible function of the traveler not understanding the setup here, and...

I can't say enough great things about this place. It is amazingly beautiful, the staff is friendly and it's the perfect getaway. If you're not into resorts or crowds, look no further. Even during December, the busiest season of the year, we could look forward to retreating back to our jungle oasis and leaving the crowds behind. I'm not exaggerating...

We loved the property. Lulu's breakfasts in the mornings were delicious, and Sam and Jimmy were very helpful with what to do around Tulum. Unfortunately we were really disappointed in the lack of amenities for the price ($500+/night with a 7-night minimum). In our room there was very spotty/slow/sometimes non-existent wi-fi, no tv, no a/c, and no cell service. Definitely...
