“Friendly and relaxed Thai-inspired resort, with 10 simple yet stylish cabanas, on a magnificent white powder beach”
The 10 cosy but cool cabanas vary in size and décor, but each has a high palapa (a traditional Mayan thatched roof), white walls and curtains, a mosquito net-draped bed, and an inspirational slogan printed in bright orange across one wall. Some - Casa Eolo and Casa al Mar - are beautifully placed right on the beach; others have patio areas outside (these offer less privacy as the doors open straight onto the bedroom). Furnishings are simple, with wall hangings and decorative vases adding a subtle Asian influence. There are cosy duvets for chilly nights and ceiling fans for hot tropical evenings.

We stayed in Casa Eolo, which has an upper floor with a wooden ladder up to a mezzanine with a double mattress. Casa Que Canta has a similar loft with a single mattress. We found the ladders in these cabanas to be very steep and therefore wouldn’t recommend them for families. Casa Albaba is a lovely second floor room with an ocean view and a bigger bathroom; this, like Eolo, has its own water tank (bottled water is provided in the other cabanas). In the smaller rooms, don't expect to find space for much besides your bed and a bookshelf / wardrobe.
Nine of the cabanas have ensuite bathrooms with walk-in showers and bamboo walls; guests staying in Casa Krishna must use a communal bathroom. Plumbing is a little basic and you might come across the occasional roof leak during heavy downpours, but this all adds to the rustic charm.
Electricity is available 24 hours a day for the lights and fans, but only 2 rooms (Eolo and Albaba) have power outlets for charging phones, using shavers etc, so if this is important to you check when enquiring. Rooms are cleaned daily - look out for a different towel animal creation each night!
Breakfast is included in the price. It's a communal affair served from about 8.30-9.30am (but don't expect on-the-dot timings - you might find yourself hanging around for a bit). A large table is stylishly laid for 16 and here you meet your fellow guests to swap travel tips and stories. If you feel antisocial, then just show up a little late and people will have "paired off", or headed off to the beach. You get a delicious and plentiful selection of fresh fruit, croissants, yoghurts, cereals and jams, washed down with mango juice, tea and lashings of coffee.
Although there's no bar, soft drinks, wine and champagne are all available (at extra cost), and hot water can be provided if you want to make a brew. There are purified water dispensers in the breakfast room and the yoga studio which you can help yourself to.
There's no restaurant on site, but meals can be delivered from nearby eateries: fish tacos, braised shrimp, chicken fajitas, salads, pasta, that sort of thing. We enjoyed tasty food from 100% Natural and Pizza Pazza. Alternatively, head to the restaurant at neighbouring Villa Las Estrellas for delicious ceviche, octopus and paella (make sure you book in advance), or take a cab into Tulum for a wider choice.
If you're organising a wedding, a function or a simple special occasion, catering can be arranged.
Children are welcome here, but it's not ideal for younger ones. The only cabanas big enough to accommodate extra people are those with lofts, but but the steep ladders make them unsuitable for children. Cots and babysitting are available on request.
