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.

... got onto a van that would bring me to Tulum. A 50 minute drive for incredible 40 pesos, no reason to complain.
The driver dropped me off right at the entrance of the ruins, where I was immediately approached by a guy who worked for the local tourism cooperative. Every village has its cooperative (or maybe they are all the same) that offers tours or trips. These guys wanted to sell me a snorkeling trip and a scenic boat ride to a few ruins that were ...
... to the 'dos ojos' cenote. A cenote is a naturally formed underground cave system. There are generally several entrances to the cave system and you can swim in these beautiful waterholes. Our favourite part of 'dos ojos' was an above ground waterhole called Nicte Ha you will see in our photos. We had it all to ourselves for the majority of the time we were there, and we were both blown away by how beautiful it was. From Tulum we took a bus to Chetumal near the Belizean border where ...
... relaxing, reading and even a little siesta. In the arvo we headed down the beach, tommy checked out the ruins while I swam out to the reef again. This time it was super clear and really nice. Not too many fish but still real nice, I saw a big sting ray as well which was cool. That's about it for now. Were gonna go searching for the perfect taco tonight accompanied by few Margaretas. Perfect plan really. Till next time. ...
... written of the hotel, it really is a beautiful place; of Tulum you cannot say the same, being it a conglomerate of hotels, restaurants and tourist shops along the highway, but within short distance there are wonderful places to visit.
After recovering energy thanks to a colossal sleep in a bed so big that you could land a helicopter in it, the next morning we went to one of the many Yucatan’s cenotes: these are limestone formations and caves filled with fresh ...
... a speed bump. But the rooms were cool multi level bungalows. We had a early dinner at a restaurant near the ruins entrance which was the worst food i have ever eaten. I was having gnarly emissions testing flashback as the food somehow captured the smell of an abottoir and made it a taste. mmmm... And of course i was sick for a couple of days after. That night we had beers with the other patrons and their was shockingly 6 aussies and ony 2 internationals. We really are everywhere.
