I very much enjoyed our time at La Flaca- we (me, my mother, and my son) stayed there for a few days and it was exactly what I was looking for. Great food, good drinks, very comfortable atmosphere, etc. The rooms are great, but they're certainly in the really-nice-hostel category, not 5-star-luxury, but honestly, if you're looking for that you'll be in Cancun rather than Tulum. When I return, I won't even think twice about where I'll stay - La Flaca !
We were constantly impressed with the hotel. Staff were incredibly helpful and nice. Great location, about 3kms from the beach and short walk to downtown Tulum. They offer bikes for easy/free transport to the beach, ruins, cenotes etc. Couldn't fault this hotel, everything was spot on and made our time in Tulum unforgettable.
Best sleep I've had in years! Definitely upgrade to the beachfront cottage 11, it was worth the extra money. The sound of the ocean, perfect temperature and comfy beds made me sleep like a BABY. Huge unexpected bonus! Nice touches everywhere. Simple but more than enough. We didn't mind that it was secluded and far out because it was so fun to go past all of the other cute bars and jungle hotels on your way to civilization. Would highly recommend. Rudy and Victoria were so great! Amazing staff!
We really enjoyed our stay here. Nice cabana-type rooms on the beach with private bathrooms. Walk out of your room and onto the sand. The beach is about 30 ft away and almost all the rooms have a view of the water from their front porch (with lounge chairs and hammock). Very clean, nice staff, great restaurant ("Tacos"). We went for one day and ended up staying 3. Note that this is Tulum and it is a little rustic. There will be sand on your floor (from your feet), there is no AC, although it has a good fan and mosquito net over the bed.
The overall presentation is outstanding. Bright happy colorfully clean
decorated rooms. Excellent food and lots to chose from. Beautiful pools and beaches. Friendly staff. A real wonderful environment. We did not want to leave.
We had about 12 hours in Cancun due to a 5 am flight. It was an expensive few hours, but well worth it. It was moments front he bus station. The room itself was clean and a good place to regroup before flying home. The hotel staff were extremely helpful helping us choose a place to eat and providing us directions. They arranged a cab for us for 2:30 am, however, it was M$100 more than normal. That part was a bit disturbing.
This was our first trip to Mexico and we had a great time!
Francesca and Roberto are fantastic people and gave us a lot of helpful info. English is not their first language as they are Italian, but Francesca did a great job :-)
Their staff Jose and Aurora were always friendly and kept the place running well. Our room was cleaned every day and the air conditioning worked 100% (We went when it was 34degrees and 100% humidity lol)
It's a few minutes out of town but a taxi will get you into town for 30-40 pesos and you'll appreciate the quiet location.
