Absolutely love this place. Great location, beautiful rooms, beach and fantastic staff. The new grill and restaurant options are stellar. Highly recommend Ahau to anyone visiting Tulum. Also check out their sister hotel Alaya just up the beach.

We brought a large group of people here for our wedding in December - everyone loved the hotel, it's location, food and staff. The location is perfect - across from all the great restaurants and the staff is accommodating and friendly... and the morning yoga fabulous. I can't wait to go back to this slice of paradise!

I LOVED spending my birthday this February in Tulum. We booked our stay at the Bali Hut. They are adorable and super affordable. We ended up getting upgraded to the Master Ocean view suite on my birthday and spent the last two days in that room. It was GORGEOUS! We did not want to leave. Such a great surprise. Everyone...

Everything is wonderful here. The beach is pristine and staff are nice. This hotel is down to earth and the staff are well treated. They allow beach access for the public, yoga classes, and have a lovely restaurant called Raw Love on the property. The food and coffee are acceptable ;)

Hotel is very nice. Great location. Lots of room to lounge on the beach. Room was nice. I would recommend it and would return. Morning coffee (that they deliver) one morning was luke warm and not really full. We asked for replacement which was better. But it's time consuming to deal with issues as there are no phones in the...

This place has it all...seriously. Delicious food, super comfy (and luxurious) rooms, incredible views, generally gorgeous property, ethereal ambiance, incredible service...My husband and I have stressful jobs and really needed a vacation that would give us a chance to unplug, reconnect, and find some peace. A week at Ahau was the magic we needed! Mariana and Paulina at the front...

My husband and I chose this place for our honeymoon without knowing much about it. It was a dream! We loved the cool breeze, the local dogs and cats that hung out freely, the vegan restaurant, and the delicious food at the restaurant. It is very family friendly too. The day beds were so comfortable and the service was wonderful....

My absolute favorite place to rest and recharge. Tulum is exquisite on it's own but Ahau takes it over the top with it's lovely rooms and setting. A perfect blend of modern and rustic, well-situated along playa. The service is superb and the staff is bar none with big hearts and smiles for days : ) Marco, David, Jesus –...

This is the real deal if you're looking for something on the beach-literally! We stayed in #1 and if you can, go for it, you won't be disappointed.
