You will be stressed during your stay about what will they cost you afterwards, dont get any touristic event trough reception, they will assist you with highest price, no customer satisfaction at all, they usually consider you one time customer. No room service after 10 pm, even hard to find 1 person works in the hotel. Paying rate around 300$...

I recently visited Ahau Tulum and it was THE BEST experience of my life! It was exactly what I was looking for to unwind and introduce my kids (ages 10 & 11) to culture, cuisine, yoga and language. The entire experience will stay with my family for years to come. Thank you Ahau. xoxoxoxo

Stumbled across this place whilst out walking in Tulum. Great food and amazing view. Good vegan and veggie options too. Staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend this place to eat, take in the view and have a cocktail.

Immediately Marco the restaurant manager greeted us. Showed us the menu. When we told him we may be back he invited us to go climb the tower...

I was searching for a place to stay in Tulum and found Ahau and Alaya. I knew when I found them exactly where we were going to stay. Ahau is away to regain peace and nourish your soul. I absolutely felt like a princess staying at Ahua in a beachfront room. You are able to connect with the sun and...

I'm writing this review almost one year after my first visit to Ahau and will be returning there in less than 2 weeks. I have never been anywhere so magical (europe, hawaii, caribbean, mexico). Tulum in itself is like a fantasy bubble, and staying at Ahau has to be the best way to experience it. The restaurant area serves as...

My new husband stayed in room #13, and loved our honeymoon at Ahau. Great location, we could walk to incredible restaurants + bars. It was a short cab ride to the city center, cenotes, and Akumal. The beach was gorgeous and the minimal seaweed was cleaned up every morning. We took advantage of the fresh coconuts and yoga offered in...

“Master Suite beach front was for sure the way to go ;-) Loved everything about our room! Absolutely beautiful!!! We were surprised to have an outdoor shower ;-) Definitely a plus when you have been playing in the ocean or the sand. Both showers... you may be surprised! They only have cold water ;-) Good for you skin and the glow of your skin!!! ;-) So be ready to laugh and yell at the same time as showering ;-) Loved the aloe gel and the organic insect repellant that was placed in our room. ”
