We spent a week down in Tulum and stopped by this place to have a look around. The woman at the front desk said that she had a room for us and showed it to us. We said that we would take it for the next night, she didn't want a deposit or a name and even though we thought it was strange we left. The next day we came back and the room was taken. Silly thing is that when we said the girl was going to hold it they asked what he name was, how the heck I am to know she was running your place yesterday and you don't know?
They did give us "the best rooms" in Tulum however it was $40 more then the other one. We took the rooms and thought what ever it was two nights and we were off to Cozumel. The first one was facing the water right at the ocean side which was looking at the decking, that was ok, the open washroom was ok as we had the same thing down the road but what I couldn't understand was that there was no air conditioning or even a fan in the room. Thinking that the room would cool off at night right? Wrong it was HOT, even with the windows open there was no air movement and no one was around. The next morning we had breakfast there and no complaints on that it is what it is. However night two in another room was like the first now fan or air conditioner I thought once more that it wouldn't be that bad... wrong once more. I was lucky this time and caught the girl in the front and begged for a fan she did find one thank god.
Our bathroom light didn't work and thought nothing about it till the next day when my wife went to try it again and got a shock. I tried it and yes I got a shock, bad wiring good thing the place didn't start on fire.
And those bugs that others have talked about we had them also. We had them the first night and we looked it up and found that the bites were the same that you would find in bed bugs. My wife was eaten all over her body except her face. I had a few but mostly on my legs. We looked up bed bugs and found that they will have a three point bite marks, breakfast lunch and dinner bites they call them as they like the area and feast there. The site we checked said blood on the sheets would also be there and it was.
I have nothing against the hotel but once again I have to let people know what we found and for the money this is not the place to stay.
Great restaurants are close by, really good places to eat.
