      Historical Traveler Reviews Nueva Vida de Ramiro Tulum

      Just what we wanted

      from

      I stayed here last year but am just getting around to writing the review now. I did so much research on our trip to Tulum but had not heard that much about Nueva Vida. A friend tipped me off to it and I am so glad I booked it. Our little hut was steps from the beach and we had a little porch with a hammock to sway in the breeze. there was a little electricity which was perfect and its just so quiet and peaceful. the beach is always empty. we bought beers at the tiny deli down the street and just chilled out. the restaurant is so cute...we ate there almost everyday. we are vegetarian and they had several options for us. everyone is so nice...including the guy who runs the place...i think his name was meni. i would certainly go back there! you can't go there expecting extreme luxury because that is not what Tulum is about. its perfect if you want a quiet, chill vacation!

      Serenity, Beauty, Simplicity, a true safe haven

      from

      Absolute paradise. Eco-friendly, beautiful property. Sweet and helpful staff. Casa Banana restaurant had a superb breakfast.

      We loved staying in Blanco Amancer. It was heaven from start to finish. We didn't want to leave. Guests were barely visible because of the privacy of the architecture/landscape of the property. It is a non-commercial, sustainable environment, meaning, nothing is wasteful. They have solar powered energy at the place. They deliver food to you at the beach by request and to your room as well. This is a paradise for those who want a non-commercial, earth friendly paradise. It's clean, serene, and very special. If more places like Nueva Vida existed, the hotel universe would be such a happy place. We loved ringing in the new year at their establishment. We are very lucky to have found them. They were so wonderful with every question we had about Tulum, especially Ricardo-he was so patient. The waitstaff at Casa Banana is amazingly friendly and they played Budda Bar Vi at the restaurant. When we asked them what music was playing, they brought out the cd to show us. And when we said we loved their dishes, they told us where we could buy them. What a paradise. Wish every hotel in America could have the same personal service, uniqueness and beauty. You can see that the owners really wanted to create something special-and they did.

      Posto fantastico ed isolato

      from

      La mia ragazza ed io abbiamo passato 3 notti al Nueva Vida de Ramiro durante il mese di luglio. Cercavamo un posto isolato, lontano dai grandi villaggi turistici marittimi, e questo posto non poteva essere più ideale. La spiaggia è perfetta, con sabbia soffice e bianca che si estende per chilometri. Durante le nostre passeggiate mattutine, non abbiamo incontrato quasi nessuno (non credo che luglio sia una stagione particolarmente affollata a Tulum). Si nuotava con piacere perché l'acqua era tiepida, il fondo sabbioso, e le onde non tanto forti. L'albergo stesso era molto informale, il servizio cordiale, e ti lasciano per lo più in pace a meno ché tu non chieda la loro assistenza. La nostra sistemazione era la cabana n. 1, da cui si godeva una bellissima vista ed una piacevole brezza dato che si trovava proprio di fronte al mare. Era vicina ad un'altra cabana, ma protetta in modo da assicurare la nostra privacy. L'abitazione era semplice, senza acqua calda (per lo meno durante la nostra permanenza), senza aria condizionata, mini bar, ecc. Ma credo che questo vada bene per il tipo di persona che viene in genere qui. Le tartarughe marine salgono sulla spiaggia durante la notte per deporre le uova (in giugno o settembre, se non mi sbaglio), e una è venuta a farlo proprio sotto la nostra cabana durante la prima notte. Jaime, il nostro geniale oste, ci ha detto che non aveva voluto svegliarci, ma se siete lì durante la stagione giusta e glielo chiedete, vi avvertirà perché possiate vedere l'azione. Non abbiamo mangiato al ristorante perché era situato sul retro della strada, dove non arriva la brezza marina, e in luglio è particolarmente umido. Forse il solo inconveniente per noi è stata la mancanza di ristoranti da potere raggiungere a piedi, ma suppongo che questo sia il prezzo che si paga per l'isolamento. Avendo detto ciò, devo aggiungere che Ana y José (girate a sinistra e continuate per circa un chilometro) prepara un'ottima colazione/pranzo di fronte alla spiaggia, ed abbiamo mangiato un'eccellente pietanza di pesce nel loro ristorante col pavimento coperto di sabbia. È tutto molto rilasssante, e lo consigliamo vivamente a quelli che preferiscono un ambiente bello e tranquillo piuttosto che il lusso di un albergo alla moda.

      Maravilloso lugar

      from

      Nos encantó nuestra estancia en Nueva Vida. Nos alojamos en el bungalow #4 por dos noches y deseábamos habernos alojado por mucho más. El bungalow estaba muy limpio. La playa es hermosa y enorme - había muy pocas personas en la playa a ciertas horas así que estaba muy tranquila, calmada y relajante. Lo que más me gustó del bungalow fue la terraza con la hamaca y la brisa fresca y agradable. Estaba increíblemente caliente cuando caminabas hacia la calle, pero la terraza siempre estaba fresca y agradable. Lo que más me preocupaba antes de estar allí era si los bichos se meterían en el bungalow, pero no hubo problema en absoluto. Además, el personal era muy agradable. El camino que va hacia los bungalows está pavimentado, nosotros habíamos alquilado un coche y no tuvimos problema en llegar allí. En general, tuvimos una magnífica experiencia y sin duda nos alojaremos de nuevo aquí.

      ¡Fantástico lugar!

      from

      Mi marido y yo nos alojamos en Nueva Vida por 4 noches y lo pasamos fenomenal. Nos alojamos en la Cabaña #1, que estaba frente al mar. La cabaña era muy linda por dentro y tenía una fantástica plataforma con sillas y una mesa. La propiedad está muy bien cuidada y la playa es simplemente fenomenal. Hay corales en el fondo del océano (bueno para el snorkel) pero hay bastante espacio limpio para nadar sin zapatillas para el agua. Repito, ¡la playa es espectacular! El personal y los dueños eran muy agradables. El restaurante ofrece una gran variedad de comida, y todo lo que comimos estaba delicioso...en especial las tortitas.

      Sin duda nos alojaremos de nuevo aquí.

      Fantastic secluded location

      from

      My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at Nueva Vida de Ramiro in July. We were looking for something secluded, well away from any large beach resorts, and it couldn't have been more ideal. The beach is perfect soft white sand and goes on for miles. When we went for walks in the morning we saw hardly anyone else (I don't think July is a particularly busy season in Tulum). Swimming was very pleasant as the water was warm, the bottom was sandy and the waves not too rough.

      The hotel its self was very low key, the service was friendly and they pretty much leave you alone unless you seek them out. We stayed in cabana 1 which had great views and a nice breeze being right at the front. It was close to another cabana but shielded from it for privacy. The accomodation is simple, with no hot water (at least while we were there), no air con, mini bar etc. But I think this will suit the kind of people who come here.

      Sea turtles come up the beach during the night to lay there eggs (June-september I think?) and in fact one did so right underneath our cabana on the first night. Jaime, our genial host, said he didn't want to wake us but if you are there in season and tell him you're keen he will get you out to watch the action.

      We didn't eat at the restaurant as it was set back behind the road and away from the sea breezes where it is extremely humid in July. Perhaps the one weakness for us was the lack of restaurants in walking distance, but this is the price you pay for seclusion I guess. Having said that Ana Y Jose (turn left and walk about 1km) does very good breakfast/lunch on the beachfront and we had an excellent fish dinner in their sand floored restaurant.

      All in all an extremely relaxing and highly recommended place for those who are more interested in beautiful, tranquil surroundings than in cutting edge luxury.

      Wonderful place

      from

      We loved our stay at Nueva Vida. We stayed in bungalow #4 for two nights and wished we were staying longer. The bungalow was super clean. The beach there is beautiful and huge-- there were only a few other people on the beach at any given time so it was very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. My favorite part of the bungalow was the porch with the hammock and the nice cool breeze. It was incredibly hot when you walked towards the road, but the porch was always nice and cool. My main worry prior to staying there was about bugs getting into the bungalow, but that was never a problem at all. Also the staff was very nice. The road leading to the bungalows is now paved, we had a rental car and it was no problem getting there. Overall a great experience and we will definitely stay there again.

      Loved it!

      from

      After almost two weeks in clean, but very budget accomodations in Cozumel, my fiance and I decided to splurge on the $150/night Cabana #1at Nueva Vida de Romero. This was exactly what we wanted. The owners are a man and wife with tons of cool family photos in the common area (games and books, too). The property has been created so as to cause as little disruptioin to the surrounding wild life as possible. It's clean and beautiful. The cabanas may seem overpriced, but it's the best you can get on the beach in Tulum without going total $$$$ resort. Be warned--this hotel is way down the road. It's past the paved part and takes patience to drive, but is well worth the trip and makes for less beach foot traffic. I highly recommend a rental car if you're planning on seeing the cenotes and ruins outside of Tulum. It was well worth the expense. The ocean is right there and we felt virtually alone even though we were there in high season early January. A fine, but nothing special restaurant is across the road. It was a nice little setting and adequate for breakfast. I recommend you spend the extra money and eat dinner up the beach at Posada Margherita, where they have lovely Italian food which is a nice change of pace. It goes down as one of the finest dinigin experiences I've ever had.

      Great place

      from

      We stayed at Nueva Vida di Ramiro for 5 nights in Mar 2006. It is a great place with a handful (7-8) private cabins on a large property. We were in an oceanview carribean bungalow (#4) which has 1 bdrm, 1 bath. We felt these were the better than the oceanfront bungalows because they were private but were still a stone's throw (literally) from the beach. The beach there is awesome and is raked by the staff everyday. Beach towels and beach chairs are provided. In the room, there was a big bed and a small bed with mosquito nets. They provide a bottle of water, fresh towels and organic(??) shampoos and soaps. The restaurant is on the other side of the road away from the beach and is decent (but not fantastic). The hotel has a great laundry service where for 15-20 pesos a kilo, your clothes are washed, dried and folded (but not pressed) and returned the next day.

      The best part about the stay was the staff. They were super helpful, attentive, polite and friendly without being intrusive. Everyone had a smile and the whole place felt like being at home with staff to take care of the small details. And of course the beach there is great. Even when the resort was nearly full there were only four families on their rather large beach. The staff was particularly nice to our 3 yr old daughter who was allowed there even though the website says otherwise.

      My only minor gripe was that it was a little cumbersome to order beach service. One would actually have to trek back to the restaurant and order it or bring it back yourself.

      Great Place!

      from

      My husband & I stayed At Nueva Vida for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. We stayed in cabana #1, which is beachfront. The cabana was very nice inside and had a great deck w/ chairs and a table. The property is taken care of very nicely and the beach is just awesome. There is some coral on the ocean floor (which is good for snorkeling) but there is enough clear space to swim without water shoes. Once again, the beach is awesome!

      The staff and owners were all very nice. The restaurant offers a big selection of food, everything we ate was delicious...especially the hotcakes.

      We would definately stay here again.

      ... we stopped in another cave for a Mayan blessing. The blessing was conducted by one of the family elders burning resin over charcoal to protect us and keep us safe after descending into the cenotes, which to the Mayans is a dwelling place of the nines gods of the underworld and the blessing also protected us against bringing any negativity with us from underworld. Leaving the cave I felt lighter and very calm as we continued on to the Mayan ruins at Tulum. Robbie again impressed ...

I had to walk about 20 blocks but that didn't matter, not even as the sweat dripped. Arriving at their holt I found their room and the boys in there, a sleep but not for long haha. The first day spent was much long all the days, chilled and good vibes. We wondered down the beach which ...

      ... about the BZ37.50 we had to pay for our departure tax. But no one told us about the docking fee of BZ20.00. Being the budget conscious travellers that we are, we already set aside the exact change for the tax and now had to shuffle money around to pay for the docking fee. One of the crew - Jaime was nice enough to help us sort out the money using BZD and USD. We then get told to move to the next room and random things get checked and stamped and forms filled out. Not ...
