Hotels in Tulum

Along a stretch of Mexico’s Mayan Riviera surf, the six-room resort resembles a whimsical sandcastle. Facing a freshwater lagoon, these pyramid-style stone edifices have a wooden bridge connecting the third-floor suites.

This adults-only boutique hotel in secluded Tulum has nine guest rooms, including four ocean view suites, two master suites, and three non-view, ground level rooms.

La Vita e' Bella has direct beach access in a secluded setting near Tulum.

This eco-friendly boutique has 24 thatched-roof cabanas with thatched roofs and rustic designs that include East Asian hints such as Buddha statuettes and incense burners. Beds are draped with netting that serves the dual purpose of creating an airy feel while keeping out mosquitos.

The hotel's spartan-but-chic suites, many in two-story, thatched-roof units, are clean and elegant, with rustic furnishings made of tropical woods.

Ana y Jose, named after its founding couple, has 24 spacious rooms placed throughout the lush property, which faces a quiet, white sand beach about four miles south of the fortressed Mayan ruins of Tulum.

Gran Bahia Principe Tulum is connected to four other resorts in the Riviera Maya area, and has tropical gardens and native fauna that are found in Mayan forests. The 858 guest rooms differ in size and proximity to the beach.

A compound of three-story beach houses, Casa Magna was reputedly built by drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, and the outlaw couldn’t have chosen a more desirable location than the tiny Yucatán town of Tulum.

Known for its tranquil setting, Maya Tulum Retreat and Resort has 45 private cabanas that are all within 50 meters of the beach; some open up right onto it. Accommodations are simple, with traditional Yucatan touches such as thatched roofs and white-washed stone walls.
