The lodge is currently closed for maintenance - the rating is based on the fact the lodge is closed and not on the actual facilities.

The road was in good condition but when we asked about availability we were told they were closed for Maintenance.

We spent almost 3 weeks on the Yucatan peninsula and this was our final stay. We'd expected it to be more basic and closer to nature but we also found it rather dysfunctional. We arrived late afternoon and no-one told us that dinner was only available until 7.30. We got to the dining room at 7.35 and there was no flexibility so we had to drive back to the hotels on Tulum beach. The next day we booked for our 3 teenagers (they didn't have space for the whole family) to go on the lagoon tour. No one told them/us that a big part of the tour was swimming so they didn't have it with them.... and we were keen to go on a turtle tour especially as this is a stretch of beach where may turtles lay their eggs... We were told that we could only do this from Tulum so had to drive all the way back. We checked out and checked in for our final two nights to a place on Tulum beach to do the turtle tour (well worth it) which would have been really impractical from Cesiak as it ended at 1.30 in the morning and you'd have to drive all the way back. So think twice before staying here.

Room Tip: Read the review and think hard about what experience you are looking for before you decide to stay here.

You aren't paying for the accommodation here.. You are paying for a fantastic location in a nature reserve. The accommodation is basic. A wooden platform with a thatch roof and a tent structure in between. In July no aircon makes that very hot. You can't really have aircon with Eco but at least facing the tent door towards the sea breeze would have helped (some tents were - many, including ours, was not)..

Having said all that where else can you go for a walk on the beach and come back and find a 3 foot Green Turtle lays eggs in the sand right in front of your bedroom? The bar/restaurant was good with a fantastic view. The Eco shower block is .. well .. eco.. But for a couple of nights it was a marvelous experience. Some good days trips available from there too - the float down the mangrove channel is definitely recommended.

Bring a torch (with some red cellophane / red filter if you want to go looking for turtles on the beach). Plus some Mossie repellent (not many but..)..

The staff are great and it is all in a good cause (your tourist dollar is being well spent). Do give it a go!

Room Tip: If it is hot get a room with the door facing the sea.

Overall it is not a bad place, but value for money is not very good. Including tax we paid more than 100 Dollars a night. We were aware that we have to share a bathroom, but they just have one toilet for women and one for men. Lucky us it was not busy. We had Continental Breakfast includet which was Toast with butter and jam, coffee and a small juice. I am pretty happy to get such a breakfast in a hostel, but for the price we paid this is just not adequate. The restaurant is decent, but don´t eat there if you are really hungry the portions are very small. My boyfriend´s and my meal both had rice as a side on the menue and we ended up getting a very small portion (seriously two normal spoons for each of us) together. My boyfriend had to order a second meal and compared to may male friends he does not eat that much.The beach is nice and private, but the one we had in Tulum was much nicer and not busy at all. The tent we had definitively has seen better times. They already have changed some of the other tents.
As written in earlier reviews you need a torch. The pathways are not illuminated. You get to candle lamps for your tent which are enough when your eyes have ajusted.
The view from the top is very nice.
All in all you can stay there, but I cannot really see a reason why you should especially not for that price....

This is a great spot between the ocean and the lagoon. The bar and terraces have views to die for in either direction. We stayed on a very windy night. The bar and restaurant close by 7.15 . The cabanas/ tents are great but the candle lamps dont cast much light and if you go back to your tent after dark without a torch you might struggle to get in and light the lamps as I did. I did manage to borrow a lighter but the staff seemed a bit surprised that i might need one even though there is no light. Great for 1 night or longer if you bring your own illumination.
