    hot weather vacations at tulum

    It is a nice House, however be prepared to not having A/C. They did provide fans and that helped through the night. The place needs a bit of attention in regards to cleanliness and new furniture. Bed was comfy thanks.

    Residencia Gorila is very well located, on a nice section of the main road, close to many stores and restaurants. The staff for the hotel are all very sweet, helpful and accomodating. The hotel itself is pretty basic with solar powered showers, no air conditioning and hair dryers/straighters/electric razors are all forbidden. The beds are big and comfy and the general vibe at the hotel is very pleasant.

    Great Stay!

    The staff is amazing (especially Nicholas)! Super helpful and friendly with 24 hr security - very safe. The pool has cenote water and was extremely refreshing after a long day of exploring. We also loved that there was a fridge and kitchen in the common area to use. It doesn't have direct beach access but there's an entrance across the street. No AC, but we were able to sleep comfortably. Great place if you're looking for something affordable and nice outside of the fancy beach clubs across the street.

    Good hotel

    Muy buen hotel, bonita arte y gente amable con buen desayuno. Unica inconveniencia es el acesso a la playa, para que debes cruzar otro hotel a fuerza. Very good hotel, nice art and friendly people with a good breakfast. Only inconvenience is that you have to cross through another hotel to get to the beach,

    The people are very friendly here and it is a beautiful property right by the beach with lots of great art and nice seating areas to chill at. My only problem was the noise level from the construction close by and cars since we were in the front room basically right on the street but if you have any other room I’m sure it is not an issue at all. Our water stopped working at one point but they gave us keys to a bigger room towards the back to use the shower/water until ours was fixed so it wasn’t a problem for me. Nice little communal kitchen if you want to stash some snacks and drinks in the fridge! I would 100% stay here again (as long as its not in that front room during construction)

    This was our first time here and after an initial difficult day we loved every second of our vacation. They are right across the street from the beach and used to have free unobstructed access and view to it, but unfortunately they are building a new residence right in front.The residence has no air conditioning and uses solar panels for electricity. Temperature was not an issue for us, We got used to sleeping in an "open" house (windows and doors are nets covered with curtains). Some guests upstairs suffered from the heat and complained vividly, others in similar rooms seemed to be instead very happy. I think it depends on your expectations. We loved the minimalist, low key vacation. Their little elegant pool saved us when one of my kids got so sunburned that we could not go to the beach. There is an open air kitchen to cook and a shared refrigerator where you can save your food. They ask you to make minimal use of electricity after 8 pm, and I find that a fair request considering they run the place on solar power. I doubt that people truly honored it. We ran out of power a couple of times and they had to use the generators, the noise of which at night can be annoying. The place felt very safe and by the end of our 4th night we wished we could stay there for a whole month! The people who love there are wonderful, all of them, Jessica, Mari, Javier.

    Basic eco chic

    For the price we got this place was a great deal and we didn’t spend much time there except shower and sleep which were both great! There was some banging and kids playing early in the day and it was set off the beaten path towards end of them ‘strip’ Friendly an attentive staff!
