Historical Traveler Reviews Teetotum Hotel Tulum
So Zen in the Yucatan
This place is beautiful, so clean, fresh and zen. The yoga classes in the morning on the rooftop overlooking a jungle under the warm Mexican sun are fabulous! The food at the restaurant was lite and delicious, had some blended green fruit drink that seemed like my body received vitamins it had always been missing! Quick jaunt to the beach which is pristine and nearly empty, like the beaches you see in the movies but never find -- perfect sand, no seaweed, crabs or other sharp things, looks like a postcard photo every hour. You should definitely check it out. Oh, and the town is sweet -- a real Mexican town with families out for ice cream and watching their children in football matches -- so quaint, real and refreshing.
Very cool boutique hotel.
Apparently the name Teetotum sounds a little odd in Spanish so don't be surprised if you get strange looks from the natives when you mention where you are staying but this place is fantastic. Karen and Richard are great hosts and the atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed. The food and coffee are excellent and the rooms come with a safe, bar fridge and iPod dock. Perfect. Close to the town and the beach we really enjoyed our four nights, we would have stayed longer but all rooms were booked so we had to move on. The hotel looks great too and lounging around with smoothies or coffee after a trip to the beach was ideal.
Just returned to the UK after spending a week over Christmas at Teeotum. A little gem of a place located between both the main town of Tulum and the beaches. The rooms are really clean, comfortable and practical and with only four rooms, there is a really laid back feel to Teeotum.
The location means that you can walk into Tulum town in the evening (about a five minute walk) which has a good selection of restaurants and a few bars - also means you can leave the car at the hotel and have a drink or two too! The beach is a longish walk, an okay bike ride or a three minute drive from the hotel and there are loads of places that you can have lunch at, hire sun beds etc.
The food at Teeotum is great too and breakfast is a laid back affair that can last for most of the morning if you want!
We normally prefer bigger hotels, but Teeotum had a great feel to it and acted as an excellent base to explore the area (I would suggest getting a hire car) and the owners, Richard and Karen, really make you feel comfortable and at home throughout your stay. What a joy not to have a TV too - you get use to not having one very quickly! Will definitely stay again if we ever make it over to Tulum again.
Wonderful place to stay!
Just returned from a wonderful week at Teetotum and I miss it already. This 4 room boutique hotel is new, clean, and well designed. The owners put an amazing amount of hard work and thought into the small details that make this place unique and perfect.
Teetotum has a really good breakfast and lunch. (Dinner service and bar are being planned but were not open yet.) The menu is a nice combination of delicious takes on Mexican and local dishes and food you start to crave after traveling. I was very grateful for the excellent coffee each morning and healthier options such as granola.
The hotel is on the road to beach.The location is great to get to nearby ruins, cenotes, and towns. It is an easy walk into town but the beach is a little too far to walk to if you are in vacation mode. However, it is quick and easy to catch a cab from the hotel and there are also bikes available to borrow. I enjoyed being close to town and exploring the shops, restaurants, and taco stands. I also enjoyed just relaxing at the hotel.
The owners and staff are awesome and very helpful with recommendations of things to do in the area. Overall, this is one of the best places I have ever stayed at.
Teetotum - a gem in paradise
We were very impressed with Teetotum - located between the amazing beaches and "downtown Tulum" nothing was far away (Mayan ruins, cenotes, eco-tours...) the rooms are clean and well appointed (AC, mini-bar, king beds...) cool rooftop and downstairs lounge areas to chill out - awesome courtyard too (with a pool and palapa) which lights up beautifully at night - the staff is personable, knowledgeable and the owners are hands on and extremely accomidating - and don't miss the food - even if you cannot get a room (only four, so book in advance - we saw people turned away due to availability) the talented chef prepares wonderful ceviche and the french toast is outstanding - we will be returning to Teetotum for sure (tomorrow if it was possible) a don't miss when in Tulum - relax and enjoy!
Teetotum makes for a great stay
Tulum is a nice relaxing destination to start with having great beaches and great people. It was nice to be able to find a place to stay that matched the rest of the experience. Teetotum was a nice location close to both the main town and the beach. The people working there were very pleasant and helpfull. Spoke english which was a plus. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would certainly stay here again if I ever get to return to Tulum.
Daumen hoch für das Teetotum! Komfortabel (es geht nichts über eine schöne Tasse Kaffee oder einen Smoothie zur Entspannung unter dem Palapa). Sauber die Zimmer sind soo schön), locker (die Atmosphäre auf der Anlage und der ganzen Gegend .. man kommt einfach zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten und zum Strand). Kann diese private Lage als Teil eines schönen Aufenthaltes in Tulum nur empfehlen! AM, Philadelphia, PA.
Three cheers for Teetotum! Comfortable (nothing like relaxing, with an excellent cup of morning coffee or smoothie, under the Palapa). Clean (the rooms are sooo attractive) and Casual (the atmosphere on the property and the whole area....easy travel to local attractions and the beach). I highly recommend this intimate setting as part of an enjoyable Tulum experience!
Teetotum Hotel - Ristorante - Hall: "Trendy, accessibile e alla moda!"
Io e la mia ragazza siamo stati a Tulum nell'agosto di quest'anno. Cercavamo un posto dal prezzo accessibile, carino e alla moda e abbiamo trovato tutto questo al Teetotum, un hotel di recente costruzione. Siccome quando piove il clima può diventare molto umido, è indispensabile avere l'aria condizionata e un ventilatore. Gli hotel sulla spiaggia sono quasi tutti privi di corrente elettrica, per cui non possono fornire queste attrezzature, il Teetotum invece può! A parte questo, il Teetotum offre un prezzo conveniente (a differenza degli hotel sulla spiaggia): circa 48 euro a notte. Se si combina tutto questo con le camere pulite e trendy, l'attenzione alle esigenze personali del cliente, la piscina e un bravo chef, questo diventa l'hotel ideale per godersi Tulum al meglio! Per noi è stato un ottimo "punto d'appoggio" per andare alla scoperta delle bellissime spiagge, delle rovine e dei "cenotes" di Tulum. Il Teetotum si trova proprio sulla strada che porta alla spiaggia, perciò è facile da trovare. Thera & Koen Utrecht, Paesi Bassi.
Teetotum Hotel - Restaurant - Lounge: "Trendy, afordable and cool!"
My girlfriend and I visited Tulum in august 2007. We were looking for an afordable, nice and cool place to stay. We found it all in Teetotum, new in town. Since the wet season can get pretty hummit, airconditioning and a fan is what you need. The beachhotels are (almost all) without electricity and therefore can not provide this. Teetotum can! And besides that Teetotum is (unlike the beachhotels) afordable with 70 US dollars a night. Combine that with trendy clean rooms, personal attention, a pool, a good chef and you'll enjoy Tulum to the fullest! For us, it was 'a great basecamp' from where to visit the wonderfull beaches, ruines and cenotes of Tulum. Teetotum is located on the road to the beach and therefore easy to find.

Finally we went to the burger place A La Burger for dinner. After that we headed to Batey where another band was playing music à la Buena Vista Social Club. We spent our last night there talking and watching our underwater photos from Cozumel and the cenotes. Here we were: Batman, Ratóncito and Beatlejuice (not yet the final nickname for Dani, we're still working on ...

All was good and we were tearing through the dark off road tracks until we bumped into the first car we had ever seen out on this track, unfortunately this car was a police truck with 6 stupidly well armed policemen looking for some easy cash. We had done nothing wrong and yet they still wanted to take ...
... cloud was so different. Like cave diving but realise my preferred diving is seeing stuff like coral and fish and sharks versus wrecks and caves. Excited for some more diving on trip! Got back to hostel and moved to weary traveller as didn't like other one. Room tiny with 6 people in and girls chatting loud last night, didn't seem massively social and guy not nice way about him, like it was hard work for him ...
... they gave Dad and Michelle the 3 bedroom beach house next door instead. Even better, to apologise for the inconvenience, Dom and I were allowed to stay for free, so no hostels with bunk beds for us this week!
Over the next week, we had a good mix of lazy time drinking margaritas in the beach house and fun packed activities from cavern diving in the Cenotes to Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, topped off with snorkelling with whale sharks and ...
... instead we arrived at ten in the evening after departing from Caye Caulker at eight in the morning. The only bearable part of the trip was the half-hour ferry to Belize City, where we hopped on a rickety bus made nicer by some music from the fifties, that has brought us to the border with Mexico very slowly and stopping to load and unload passengers every two hundred meters. The thing that always leaves us puzzled is that sometimes there are also bus stations, but the driver ...
