Fodor's Review

As one of only two fully green eco-hotels in the area, this one also happens to be the most luxurious, with rustic-chic rooms designed with textiles from Chiapas, rugs from Michoacan, wood from Yucatan, and iron from Jalisco. Rooms—in two-story white buildings—are immaculate and surprisingly large, with private balconies, four-poster beds, stone floors, and driftwood lamps. You can choose to stay on the ground level with direct access to the beach or one floor up,

where you can get a better view. Rainwater is collected for daily use, and several wind turbines produce the hotel's electricity. The remote location, halfway between Mahahual and Xcalak, means you can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. The restaurant and beach club are open to the public, often turning this isolated beach into a crowded hot spot for cruise passenger.
