Wow! How do you describe the best place on Earth? Ahau Tulum!!!! This was our first time to Tulum and we chose Ahau Tulum after reading all the great reviews. There seemed to be so many great places to stay, it was hard to make a decision. But, we are so glad we went with Ahau!!!!! While we were walking...

We only stayed one night at the end of our Mexican honeymoon and would have dearly loved to have stayed longer. We had a beautiful room looking at the sea with hammock and terrace and it was very serene and seductive. You can come here to chill, have lovely food, cocktails and the fun beach bar or just sleep and...

Magical Ahau is easily accessible by taxi from both Cancun airport and central Tulum. The spacious rooms are a stones throw from the sea and surrounded by pristine white sand. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is divine whilst great musicians often accompany dinner. I was also blown away by the Yoga, (i recommend Eli's class), intuitive...

This is the spot in Tulum - really the best spot in Tulum across the board! We stayed here for New Years and have visited a few other times throughout the year. The Staff is amazingly friendly, food and drinks at the restaurant are top notch and of course it's right on the best beach of Tulum. They also have...

As we prepare to go back to Tulum, I realize we never reviewed this lovely hotel. The location is wonderful and we had one of the oceanfront suites and it was magical. We enjoyed the cabanas on the beach as well as a sweet little cat who would come in and out of our room. Naps on the deck in...

We were a group of four US woman on a get-away trip. My room (with 1 roommate) was on the bottom level facing the ocean. We walked out onto the patio, down a few steps and were immediately on the sand with only steps to the water. It was beautiful! The room was well maintained with nice extras like towels...

My husband and I honeymooned at Ahau, and it exceeded expectation. Our room was clean and comfortable with a view of the ocean, and the food and service were fantastic. It was exactly what we both wanted for our honeymoon. Highly recommend Ahau!!

I almost don't want to do this review because Ahau felt such like a secluded secret and the place was ours alone. Magical and dreamy, the staff was beyond kind and we seriously are planning a much longer stay for next time. xo
