If you want good steak in Tulum you need to visit Casa Banana. Service is excellent and food is delicious. Even if you dont eat meat, their fish dishes are fantastic also. Be careful with mosquitoes, take repellent but definitely go!

Staying across the road at Neuva Vida. Went there last night for dinner. It was so good, we split 2 appetizers and the kabobs. All were very good. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and our waiter was great.

Great tastes and lovely atmosphere. The octopus salad was delicious as well as the chorizzos. Portion side is quite large so we could have managed by having just the starters. Nevertheless we worked out esy through the main dishes.

No. Only cash. They have an ATM in front but I am told they charge high fees so wouldn't go that route. Best bet would be to change to pesos in downtown Tulum and pay with that as exchange is very favorable right now.

For breakfast each morning enjoy made to order coffee, homemade banana bread, and pineapple coconut jam. At night the restraurant gets busy and comes alive with it’s outdoor grill, known as “parilla,” and dishes are cooked over the open fire for all to see. The menu favorites include grilled to perfection steak, fresh caught fish, impressive salads, and a thoughtfully selected wine list. Don’t forget to try the handshaken icy margaritas, too.Open daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. We provide beach service for all guests of the hotel.
