A Gem
This hotel is an amazing find. I have been staying in an Airbnb, but there was a broken pipe that needed to be fixed and I was without water for three days so I went to this hotel for one night. I called to see if I could get an early check-in. They were extremely gracious and let me check in at 10 AM. I stayed in an absolutely beautiful and well designed studio. The bed and pillows were so comfortable that I had to look at the brand and now plan to buy the same mattress and pillows. The place is well maintained and there is garage parking. My only complaint was the little pool restaurant. I had Carne Asada tacos and the meat was tough and tasteless. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel. A warning, though, I followed the pin on and it takes you through some horrible dirt roads. Make sure that you come off the main highway and turn on Kulcacan.

Great hotel with great staff and amenities!
The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I had my cellphone and debit card stolen. The staff was helpful in getting me back to the hotel safely. I attended yoga class and the instructor was knowledgeable in the yoga poses that relieve muscle tension. The food was amazing especially, the salmon and brownies. I would definitely come back! In fact, this is the second time that someone from my household has stayed at the property. Hope to bring the kids back next time. Muchos gracias!

10/10 Exceptional

The property itself was beautiful. The plunge pool in the room was nice to have. The thing that bothered me was the knocking from the construction that was going on. The sound of hammers woke me up out of my sleep. And the surrounding area outside of the facility is very poor and not a sight that you want to see. But Tulum is still up and coming. All in all I would definitely stay at The Waves Tulum again! Very helpful and friendly staff! I enjoyed my stay.
