cabanas carina, bella l'idea ma molto scomoda

Posted Mar 21, 2014
la nostra cabanas era quasi con vista mare, naturalmente senza elettricità come dichiarato prima della prenotazione, però i servizi facevano pena (invece della vasca c'era la doccia che funzionava a malapena), personale molto antipatico. Valida per soggiornare una-due notti

Perfect for Us

Posted Feb 21, 2014
Pros: We were home.
Cons: I hope they don't change a thing.
Location: Ek'Balam, Chichen Itza, Merida for Carnival, Sian Ka'An.
We spent our time between Cabanas Copal and Azulik cabanas. They are part of the same establishment. Marco, Marcela, Polo, and the entire staff were always very helpful and friendly. They took excellent care of us. The rooms were candle lit, which we already knew and which was one of the key reasons we booked there, having been before. The energy around the place was serene. The sunrises and moonrises above the ocean from our decks was breathtaking. The large baths inside and outside overlooking the ocean of each Azulik cabana for romantic soaks were delightful. The secluded beach was inviting.

This is why Tulum became my favorite destination.

Posted Apr 14, 2013
While Tulum has grown and there are many new great restaurants, Cabanas Copal reminds me of the authentic Tulum I fell in love with many years ago. Real beachfront Palapas in the Mayan tradition off the grid and unplugged. Antonio met us late and took care of us with a smile. The cleaning staff suprised us each day with swans and flowers. Yes you can spend four times as much and have an experience to remember but for me this is why I travel here.

Rustic by all means

Very rustic and basic, no electricity, candles at night, moskito net over bed, bathroom ok, a little bit pricy for what you get

Very poor value-for-money ratio

Posted Dec 19, 2012
Pros: We enjoyed a lot the very quiet nights and the very beautiful sun rises.
Cons: Much too expensive for what it is.
Our cabaña was very dirty and very worn out. Many details were not functionally, damaged or broken. The roof was not leak proof. Sometimes when it rained during the night, water was dripping on the bed and caused sleepless nights In several occasions we woke up in the morning without any water in the cabaña (no shower, no toilet). BTW - the water in the shower is saltwater. During the time we stayed in Copal, several personal things like blankets and a sleep-shirt "disappeared" from the cabaña also we had the cabaña always locked. In overall the value-for-money ratio was very poor. The room quality and the service would be something one would expect for a room that costs 2x USD. We personally did not like being surrounded by naked people in the cabaña area and the beach. We think nudism should not be accepted on Mexico beaches because it is forbidden by federal law and it is in extreme misalignment with the Mexican culture and local customs, which should be respected by the foreign visitors.

Beach huts on a cliff

Posted Dec 5, 2012 on Hotels.com
If you find a decent rate, this is a great place for a beach cabana experience. Huts are nice, beds are comfortable and the housekeeping staff is terrific. Access to both a long stretch of gorgeous beach to the north or a smaller cove to the south.

Ikke reis hit!

Posted Nov 1, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hvis du ønsker et sted for "back to the nature" er dette sikkert greit. Men det er ingen strøm og kun litt kaldt vann. Det er hull mellom gulv og vegg, og med de byggematerialene er det jo også vanskelig å holde rent...Bli ikke forundret om du får besøk av en skorpion eller andre kryp. Det er heller ikke sikkert du får tak i resepsjonen eller andre av stedets ansatte, og du er heldig om de tar telefonen. Vi reiste med det samme!

Not impressed

Posted Jun 23, 2010
If this is what Eco-Tourism is all about, I can do without.
