Had a great time relaxing on the beautiful beach. The food was delicious, especially the club sandwich and ceviche! The staff were so accommodating and friendly and really made you feel at home. Would definitely stay here in the future. The massage on the beach was amazing and so inexpensive! Dante was great!

The hotel/resort was fantastic. All the staff were excellent, especially Marco, Gabriela, and Ricardo. The food, drinks, and service was top-notch. The restaurant looked out to the beach and ocean was the grounds were immaculate, The only downside we experienced was the heat, but that was to be expected in July. A fantastic trip and resort.

Great and friendly staff, magnificent rooms with beautiful views, cultural feel, very clean, and overall excellent time. Junior and Master suites are to die for. Bali hut is not as nice but you get what you pay for. Ahau is known in Tulum as being one of the best. This is the place you want to stay.
