My husband and I, along with our adult daughter, spent a week at this lovely hotel in November 2012. As other reviewers have mentioned, the setting is without equal. Compared to many hotels in Tulum, Las Ranitas occupies a huge stretch of beach, and the beach is exquisite as well as mostly empty. Our room, Coqui 2, was beautiful, with a large sitting area, a huge comfortable bed, and a terrific view. The lobby/restaurant is multi-leveled and stunning. Without exception, everyone who works there was efficient, friendly and charming.

Tulum is a place to go to relax, and that is what we did. The chairs/beds on the beach were so comfortable, and the sea so beautiful that we really didn't leave the hotel often, except to wander up and down the beach and try a few other restaurants. I would agree with another reviewer who said the food was a bit over-priced, but you can also avail yourself to nearby restaurants. The pricing did not detract from our overall experience, which was beauty, tranquility, stunning setting, and lovely people. We will definitely return.

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with 40 of our family and friends. The rooms were fine, the view awesome, the food and service - outstanding. All of our guests were very satisfied! Angelina Cardenas helped to coordinate a wonderful Mayan ceremony on the beach as well as a terrific dinner and party for all of us. We will be back!

After getting married at Las Ranitas in May, we knew we would be back again, and again. We got to spent nine days at the beautiful Las Ranitas, and it was perfect. The setting is incredibly beautiful, the rooms are charming , and the food and drinks are delicious. We loved that we could sleep with the noise of the oean and fresh breeze...ahhhh such a treat. The new rooms are amazing, and everything at this hotel is very spaced out, so we were never around more then 6 people at a time on the beach. It was wild that we were at such a beautiful strech of beach, and yet it was never busy or crowded. Do keep in mind that things are more expensive then in other areas of Mexico, yet the exclusive feel and privacy makes it worth it to us. We can honestly say we loved every minute there and cant wait to go back. We love to travel and usually do not repeat places, yet Las Ranitas we plan to visit once a year!!

Room Tip: I would suggest an upper level floor, or one of the new suites.

Las Ranitas is located on the best spot of the best beach in the world. Hands-down. You won't find a prettier, cleaner, more virginal stretch of beach than at Las Ranitas.

The lobby/restaurant is the most breathtaking indoor-outdoor building I've ever been in, and really respects the natural beauty of the ocean while incorporating the old-world feeling of a thatch roof.

The rooms are beautifully appointed with lovely Mayan tiles in the bathroom. We never missed the AC because the night breeze was cool enough to keep us from getting too hot.

We loved this place and really felt we could relax. This place is for people who want to kick back and enjoy the peaceful solitude of the Mayan Rivera. Will be back for sure!

Our only complaint...
The food was delicious, but we felt it was overpriced. We were spending around $30-$40 USD each morning for breakfast for 2 ppl (consisting of: 2 waters, 2 coffees, 1 omelette, 1 granola/fruit plate), and well over $100USD per lunch and dinner. It was just too much for us to keep paying, so we started eating only one meal per day at the hotel and for the others we would walk down the beach to the other hotels and have our lunch or dinner there. (On that subject, I highly recommend Luv Tulum's quaint little family-owned restaurant just 5 minutes down the beach)

Tulum is at the lower end of the Riveria Maya and the changes I've seen in ten years have been startling. Once an elegant word-of-mouth destination at the end of a rutted dirt road, Las Ranitas has gone upscale. New owners have added amenities but the feeling of the hotel remains warm and special. Where good food was once very difficult to find, the area abounds in excellent restaurants and cafe's. And the beach remains one of the most beautiful and accessible I can imagine. On long winter nights I dream of the sounds of palms and the gentle lapping of waves in the crystal clear water.

The price has gone up considerably, too, in ten years. Where once a stay at the hotel seemed to be a stay at a very special house party -- with low prices and personal attention -- now the hotel has a more commercial vibe. Is the new Las Ranitas worth the price?

It's a luxury that I somewhat reluctantly pay for. I miss the elegant and creative former owners -- Layla and Yannick -- and the less-formal atmosphere. But the beach itself is something that has to be experienced to be believed. So if price isn't too much of an issue, check it out. And imagine this paradise when hippies hitched the rutted roads and one could bonefish on the beach without seeing more than a dozen tourists per morning. All things change, some for better, some not. Las Ranitas remains very special, but it's an expensive indulgence.
