Great location just across the highway from the start of the bike path to the beach and walking distance to groceries and restaurants. Apartment was super clean and very nice and having a washer/dryer was a bonus. If you bring a Chromecast along, you can strream Netflix onto the TV, which was nice as well. A bit noisy at night (traffic, dogs, vendors), but we would close our window and turn the air on "fan" and it was fine. If you need to change out your water jug, take it to the little mom & pop just down to the right. We stayed 6 weeks. Josue and his wife, Eloisa were very attentive owners and responded very quickly to any of our contacts. Really super nice people!! Load Whats App on your phone BEFORE leaving home if you want to call them while there. We had no phone service, but used Facebook messaging to call home (US) If you walk out the front of the building and go left out to the main highway. You can walk across the road to a smaller grocery store (San Francisco) and also pick up a cab there. There is also an Oxxo and a decent restaurant (La Coqueta? just up on the right. Just down on the left (on the main rd) is Las Baguis which had fabulous iced coffee, sandwiches and salads. There is a large grocer a little further down the road to the beach (Chedrui). There were bikes available to rent and it took us 15-20 minutes to bike to the public beach next to the Mezzanine (we're in our 50's, so you could possibly ride there faster than we could ) Drivers are very mindful of walkers/riders, so it's very safe to ride. You're also close (ridable) to some cenotes and not far from Coba ruins (worth the trip and rent the bikes to get around when you get there and do the cenotes close by afterwards) If you come out of the building and go right, keep going until you come to a very large and nice park. Basketball, baseball, soccer, skateboarding, work-out stations. Great to go on a Saturday/Sunday and watch some games. There's also a park on the main street on the right down towards the ADO bus station that also has food vendors on the weekends and lots of local families just enjoying life. Meet the people. They're the friendliest around. Tulum has a great vibe. If you come out of the building and go right and then left at the first main rd (Satellite Sur) you'll be a the start of the restaurant/shop area. Make a left and walk to main street. Hit the little mom & pop with the green awning on the right for fresh fruit juices and some fruits and vegetables (they were also the only place we could find plantain chips). Always good to support the little guys. Taqueria Honorio ( far right corner of Satellite Ave and Calle Sol Ote) was the best for tacos and Pastor. La Querida was best overall for everything. Mexican and Italian. The service was always good and they didn't rip you off. (maybe 2 more blocks to the right) Don Cafeto had Huevos Rancheros (which we love) BUT, they would never bring you the correct change and we had to call them on it every time, so just watch for that. Pollo Bronco was the best grilled chicken EVER! The thai place (I think it just says Thai on the green awning) was also good. We were there 6 weeks and I never cooked once since it was so cheap to eat!! We did the small street vendors as well and they were good, too. The only time we got a little funny on the belly was when I accidentally swallowed a bunch of ocean water at the beach. The best tip I can give you is to buy a Ziggy Shade to take to the beach. It's packable in a carry-on bag and it's a life saver because there's no shade at the beach. If you walk further down the beach, there's a larger area with chairs/umbrellas to rent, but it's a congested, noisy spot. Much more Tranquilo where you enter from the bike parkinng area.
