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 …
... a cosa servono queste benedette stazioni se la gente aspetta l’autobus per strada comunque: misteri di questo continente.
Abbiamo passato il confine pił o meno facilmente, nel senso che non c’era coda ma come sempre a Nina hanno fatto svuotare tutti i bagagli in cerca di non so cosa: strano, a me non sembra abbia la faccia da narcotrafficante. Arrivati a Chetumal, la prima cittą messicana dopo aver lasciato il Belize, ci siamo accorti che avevamo perso ...
... customs and immigration and they said "let her through").
We have been actively looking for a restaurant to open, but the severely relaxed pace in this part of the world allows us to take 3 steps forward and 2 1/2 back, but we are shuffling forward. Got a chance to drive down to Tulum, still a somewhat sleepy village, that is starting to make an impact. ...
... That night we went to a nice little Mexican restaurant which cost us M$150 for starters, mains and drinks! Today we went diving again! This time it was in a cenote, which is similar to an underwater cavern/cave. It was really really good. The water was crystal clear and all these little fish kept coming up and swimming eight next to your eyes, it was like swimming in an aquarium! We had about 100m visibility. We went on ...
... restaurant. It truly signifies vacation. So there we were, margaritas in hand, toes in the sand, food in our belly, on vacation. I was drunk before we even hit the beach. We were served by a group of ex-pats, one more stoned than the other. And of course I had my eye on the hot Argentinian I nicknamed Rodrigo or Enrico - were you smiling at me Rodrigo? Our Uruguayan waitress mismatched our orders, forgot we were there and ...

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.
