Parayso Hotel and Spa
Travel Blogs from Tulum
Escaping the touristy crowds of Playa del Carmen, we hopped on a bus to Tulum. Checking into Tulum Bike Hostel, we then took advantage of the free bicycle hire and set off on the 2km trip to town. After 1 minute my chain fell off and after 2 minutes AP's tyre burst. Hmm, well they are free. We swapped them for a couple of different ones and made the trip into town to find a supermarket. We would have had a wander round as well but it is ...
... and all that. Back at the hostel I was in for a bit of a surprise bumping into Stephan who I had met back in Valladolid. Apparently he had stayed there an extra day and then made the sensible choice of skipping Playa and headed straight here. On the last few days of his year long travels he was just looking for a nice beach to wind out his trip. Despite the fact that I was originally intending to be home by this point ...
... around me. Checking I'm ok he heads off for a solo bite to eat about 9pm and I don't even realise he's gone. By the time I eventually rise the next morning I've slept for the best part of 16 hours. Feeling much refreshed we opt to spend the day on the beach doing absolutely nothing. Our reserved area awaits us with ice buckets of mineral water and the most beautiful views of pelicans wheeling over the crystal sea. Plans for adventures can wait til manana. We ain't going ...
... 5 star Cabanas Talum Ziggy Beach Resort. A VERY generous wedding gift (thank you Mink and Lu!!) Ziggy Beach was everything we had dreamed of and more, and we appreciated it all the more after two months of slumming it in Super 8 hotels! We were shown to our beach-front rooms complete with animal shaped towels (I had wanted a snow-leopard but was happy with an elephant), private balcony and hammock, and rooftop day-bed. As privileged guests we were also able to access ...
... Ts'onot" to refer to any location with accessible groundwater. It was quite the experience.
After we had snorkelled the cenote for about two hours we made our way to the beach and had an opportunity to swim with some turtles and sting rays in the outer reef and then make our way back to the hostel. The total cost for the 5 hours including lunch,entry and transportation was $45 u.s, very good value for money.
Thanks for reading :)

Historical Traveler Reviews Parayso Hotel and Spa Tulum
The reviews on Parayso hotel made us think that this would be a great hotel for a relaxing beach experience. And the email contact about the reservations seemed to confirm this. However, we arrived in the afternoon and there was no one to check us in. After a while we found someone, holding a laptop and wearing earphones, and we talked to the owner who is in Canada. He explained how there was a mix-up. The rooms we booked weren't ready yet. It would take maybe an hour. We didn't quite understand whether they were cleaning the room or something else, because he kept on suggesting for us to take our time and go away for a while, and in the mean time we saw all kinds of people carrying suitcases from one room to another... so obviously something was going on...
We spent 3 nights at the Hotel Parayso at the end of our week long vacation in Mexico. We were traveling with another couple, and booked the Tulum Deluxe Suite (2 adjoining rooms) on the ground floor.
I stayed at Parayso and absolutely loved it! It's a newer hotel and looks stunning. The rooms are very classy with a local touch to them. The amenities in the room such as the refrigerator and air conditioning were great. I didn't think I would use the ac, but by the end of the week it felt so nice once the breeze had died down off the water. Each of the rooms have their own little porch or balcony overlooking the water. It was a perfect way to enjoy the quietness of the morning while sipping coffee brought to my room. The staff were very friendly, smiley, and there to offer assistance no matter what you were after.
I stayed at the Parayso for one week at the beginning of April.
We had pre booked the "penthouse" for the panoramic views .When we arrived,the place looked closed. There was nobody around, it felt strangely unwelcoming.
Hotel Parayso was very nice. We stayed there for 3 nights. We were the only guests in the hotel, so it was very quiet. The staff was very pleasant. Rooms: the rooms were nice. We had to ask for extra pillows and blanket for the fold out sofa. The A/C worked great. The floor was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Hotel Grounds: Very clean. Nice pool area. Beach: The beach was great. Very quiet and clean. Overall it was a great stay!
We stayed from March 27-April 2 at this intimate hotel and had a great time! We would definitely go back!
Small, quit, but good service
We stayed a week at the hotel, Parayso, and it appeared that they were just finishing up. The rooms all have views of the ocean, there is a very nice pool and a jacuzzi too. i would recommend it to friends. breakfast was excellent.
