This is our 5th visit to XCanon and there is nowhere else we would rather stay. The cabanas are low key comfortable breezy beachfront rooms surrounded by people trees. Our host Fabio and his XCanon team are the friendliest and most helpful we have evercome across in our travels. We love it there and never like leaving!!!

Tulum is heaven and this place is an affordable place to experience it! The grounds of Playa Xcanan is absolutely marvellous and the owner, Fabio, is LOVELY! He is always happy, funny, friendly and helps you with anything! We really loved him. I usually have a busy itinerary when travelling, but here we loved just lying in the hammock, walking...

Lovely laid back hotel right on the beach. If you aren't comfortable with mosquito nets and a slightly ramshackle room then go elsewhere. Otherwise its great value for money with lovely staff who deliver the breakfast to your balcony or the beach. There is a small supermarket by the entrance for those all important cold beers! They only take cash...

Such a perfect, authentic beach trip. We have stayed in many of the small hotels on the strip and this was our favorite. It's not fancy, air-conditioned, or trendy, and for us these are all positives! It's quiet, natural, small, friendly, and just beautifully beachy. The host is just wonderful -- if everyone in Tulum took lessons from him it...

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. Loved our thatch roof cabana about 50 steps to the beautiful water. Fabio, the owner is one of the nicest people I have ever met. What a treat to wake up and look out and see a pot of hot water with tea & coffee just waiting. A wonderful breakfast...

I cannot say enough about this beautiful gem. We arrived and were met by Fabio, who has more energy than anyone I know, His made us feel like we were the only people in the place. He greeted us multiple times a day to see if we needed anything and even took us into town two times to exchange money...

From start to finish, I enjoyed my 4 night stay at Playa Xcanan. Fabio and his staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. The included breakfast was delicious and they served it whenever I wanted (which sometimes was in the afternoon). My room was located directly on the beach with an unobstructed view of the sea and I had a...

Stayed here in November 2016 for 3 days as a solo female traveler. Wonferful little cabana property. Literally steps away from the beach. Fabio was the true star. He was very sweet and accommodating. He prepared fresh breakfast each morning on my patio as I watched the waves and sunrise. The rooms are clean but rather spacious. Rustic, yes, but...
