Poor 2.0
Construction, mostly unpleasant staff, loud!!!!
First off the GPS pin is incorrect so it took us like an hour and a half to find it as it’s super hard to find and no one knew where it was. We were treated hostile when we first arrived parked and then all the tackled and not even allowed to go to check-in. We were ushered off to the restaurant where the manager came and spoke to us about an event that was going on. We couldn’t check in but we could use the restaurant till 830 and then we had to go back to our room we asked to be able to leave and they wouldn’t let us just cancel the reservation and go somewhere else for the night. After we were ushered back to our room the music from the event was so loud and it kept playing over and over that we couldn’t even be in the room so we tried to go down to the beach even though it was raining and they almost didn’t let us do that we couldn’t go to the pool and when we finally were allowed to go back to the room there was still partying going on till 5:30 in the morning!!! Never knew where the lobby was to go and complain I tried contacting them in the middle of the night did no good. The manager had said she take care of us in the morning but she wasn’t around no one was friendly the next morning or even cared about the fact that we didn’t get to bed until after 530 and then the chainsaw started up at dawn. Yes it is a magical place but it was such a horrible experience that I cannot leave a good review, the room wasn’t even clean because I found another chicks underwear.

Jungle experience.
This hotel is to have the experience to live in the jungle and forget about the commodities of your home. Its a great experience. But if you are not ready to leave behind those comodities this is not thenplace for you, because you will get biten by mosquitos or spiders. Also, the wifi is average. The hotel staff its not that very attentive when you get there. Its really hard to find the place, there is no signs or anything, you will have to ask around. When you get there, nobody offers help to take your luggae so be ready to carry your luggae a few stairs up, and simce its only sand, good luck pulling your luggage. One more thing, the pictures rhey have on-line are old, the hotel needs a lot of repairs to look the way it shows when you are booking. Also, i got the mayan suite plinge pool, and on the photo's it shows a different room, so ask before you book, either way, the room was pretty amazing. It was a great experience to stay at a jungle hotel, but it comes with its pros and cons. So, do your research. Also, i believe its over prize for what you get. But will definitely would stay there again.

Exceeded my expectations been going to Tulum for years and I don’t know how I missed Ikal, I want to stay here from no on! It’s paradise!!! Exactly what you need to escape the city. The section of the beach where Ikal is located is so private and beautiful, the rooms are perfectly designed around nature and not the other way around.. simply gorgeous! Can’t wait to be back!

Beautiful decorated rooms Rooms full of spiders and mosquitoes and bugs in bed sheets at night too many bites Difficult to go to outside bathroom at night in rainy season Food was okay but nothing special

Fair 4.0
Well the hotel was everything I thought it would be until it was time to sleep. The electricity will turn off every night multiple times per night making a loud sound, which means I didn’t have a good nite sleep my whole stay. Second day there was no water, on the fourth day one of the security guards went into a room on up the stairs which are supposed to be private cabanas and we were usually without clothes (thank God I had clothes at that time) and went up unannounced and without any efforts to announce himself. That definitely made us feel unsafe and unable to rest for the rest of the vacation. Remember these are open glass doors rooms. Let me remind you that this a vegan hotel with a very limited menu. No reception, no one to really to check us in or to help at all. The room pool was dirty and had no drainage what so ever so I didn’t feel comfortable going into a pool that looked dirty. Rec to rent a car if you are staying here since is really, really, really pitch black dark at night time and you would feel scare to walk alone.

Ikal is an excellent up and coming hotel. Room and space was nice and clean. Bar was great and ideal access to the beach. Temezcal available on the property was a major perk!
