The staff was great! The room was spacious and clean. It is walkable to everything but not in the middle of the party spots, which was nice for sleeping.

Great place. Has everything you need. Clean, friendly, helpful. If you get the apartment room, with a kitchen and table, it is on the front next to the road which certain evenings are very busy and noisy. BUT...that didn't distract us at all! Just something for you to know. We spent much of our time at the beach, and walking for food and shops.It was an a great experience, one we would readily repeat.

10/10 Exceptional

This was our second time back to Tulum in three years, this time with a 10 mo old baby. Last time we stayed at Posada Lamar and really glad we didnt this time with the influx of all the new clubs and party goers. We really enjoyed our stay at Alaya Tulum. Everything was just as expected. The food was fresh and tasty, hotel was clean, quiet and had a cool bungalow vibe The staff at Alaya was so welcoming and always helpful anytime we had questions, or just ordering food it was very easy and effortless. A lot of times when we would check out other restaurants in the area the waiters do not speak much english which can be very frustrating, but at Alaya, mi amigos RICARDO, FERNANDO, REYES, HENRY (cook and bartender) all took care of us, served with a smile and always were ready for our next order of guacamole or shots of mezcal. Special thanks to Diana who watched our baby Arvin while mom had upset stomach (i think from too much sun 😆) and while dad was having a few drinks at the bar ✊️ Mucho Gracias, Hasta Luego 🇲🇽💯🕺🎉🔥
