Parayso Hotel and Spa
Travel Blogs from Tulum
After 4 nights, we moved on from Suenos to a place a little more cost effective. An old 60's, wooden beach side cabana, ran by two cowboy Mayan bothers. The place you only find out about by knocking on the door – it’s doubtful it would ever make it to a guide book! The only real benefit of this place was its elevated decks facing the …
Up at 9am, bags packed and ready to hit the road!
We drove to the gorgeous town of Tulum. Only an hour and a half from Cancun, Tulum is a much quieter coastal town. We stopped along the way at a place called Akmul, famous for it's coral reef and snorkling. It's a beautiful bay but packed with tourists. We had ice cream and cooled our feet off before hitting the road. Tulum is a very cool place. A hip little beach side town ...
Time for some diving! It's been a while. A whole 4.5 months. Wow. But this time a little different - the Mexican cenotes. Cenotes (sinkhole) are natural pits of water, formed from the collapse of the surrounding limestone. There are around 6,000 of these little blue holes dotted around the Yucatan. Today, off to explore one of them - Dos Ojos (which means two eyes). I arrived a bit early at the dive centre, but we soon headed off (the ...
... bikes to get in at all. My first impression was that everything was very manicured- short green grass and pebble paths. And the next thing I noticed were all the iguanas- everywhere- sun baking on the ruins, eating foliage, walking across paths... This was a cliff side ruin and placed above a break in the cliffs which opened up to two little beaches- making Tulum a great trading/ distribution centre. Unfortunately we couldn't climb the steps up the temple but ...
... areas including, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Cuba. That was really nice to see. I ended chatting up with a bunch of people tonight. I've met so many awesome people on this trip so I took some time to see what they did for the day, etc. and they were all curious about my adventures of the day.I ended up staying and playing pool with the people I've met instead because everyone didn't want to go to the Playa anymore since it was ...

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.
