Wonderful hotel and staff

5 out of 5
by from Maine
Posted Feb 8, 2017
Pros: Very kind staff, good restaurant and bar, great location. nice rooms. Very accommodating.
Cons: Rooms could be updated a little. Mosquito net looked a little old and covered in squashed bugs! Cleaning staff was a little forgetful of towels.
Location: It is down the road a bit, away from most shops, but still close enough to some restaurants and a few shops. Really good for just lounging on beach.
This was an amazing hotel. I have stayed at other hotels on the beach in Tulum, and this was by far the best. They were very welcoming and organized. The restaurant was great, and the waitstaff and chefs were just wonderful and so kind and accommodating. Chef Juan Carlos was especially friendly and helpful. We walked down the beach looking for lunch one day and were so turned off by the rude service at several restaurants and hotels we looked into having lunch at that we just returned back to Hip Hotel and ate there. So much nicer than anything else we encountered. It is a larger property and all the staff have walkie-talkies, so that if you request something, they get on the walkie-talkie and someone brings it to you or your room in under a minute! Restaurant food was very good too. Try the Ceviche sampler, it is fantastic. Never had octopus and octopus ink ceviche ever! Rooms were very nice. Could do with updating the doors as they stick and the lock fell off the last day. Mainly I would return because of how very nice and helpful the staff were. They really made the stay great. If anyone asks me where to stay in Tulum Beach, I would definitely recommend Hip Hotel!

Lovely room, easy access to a fantastic beachfront

Everything was great at this hotel, inc the breakfast and restaurant food. Lovely room which was comfortable, spacious and within easy access to the beach and day beds, bar swings etc. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Some food/drink items were a little expensive but this seemed the going rate in Tulum. Its located quite far down the beachfront so definitely rent a bike if you like to wander, would definitely stay again!

Pros: Staff were great
Cons: Noise of rooms near road
Very nice stay with great overall location on the beach. Only issue was room wasn't ocean view as expected, and location to road resulted in moderate noise. Beach facilities were wonderful though.

Paublo is a one-of-kind human being. He was more like a guardian angel, than an concierge. Staff was amazing and attentive. Food and drinks were inventive and top notch. We literally cannot wait to return!!

Great little hotel in Tulum

5 out of 5
by from El Paso, Texas
Posted Apr 25, 2016
Pros: Price
Cons: Better wi-fi coverage
Seems to me that the trend in Tulum is to keep your lodgings on the rustic side. That being the case, this hotel does it very well, while at the same time making sure you are comfortable and well taken care of. The restaurant is superb, the mexican cuisine is phenomenal, and the prices are better than the other restaurant's in the area. The bar is well stocked, and the staff is ready to get you whatever you want while you lay on the beach. You will not find kids jumping around you, the beach is beautiful, peacefull. Great place to relax, read, eat, drink, have fun, and recharge.

Nice hotel, on beach, great staff, light amenities

4 out of 5
by from San Luis Obispo, CA
Posted Feb 16, 2016
Pros: The staff was first class. The location is great.
Cons: Put air conditioning or at least a fan in all rooms.
Location: The beach is the main draw. Some restaurants: We liked Casa Jaguar, which is right there. Posada Margarita is a taxi drive away, but worth it.
This hotel was decent. I would stay again, but I would also look around. The hotel is right on the beach. There is a nice area with cabanas and beach chairs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You are a short walk to a bunch of restaurants. The free breakfast in the hotel restaurant was decent. We got massages in the spa, which were great. Breakfast was provided. I am picky on food, and the breakfast is decent. There did not seem to be a mosquito presence, which was nice with the Zika Virus scare. I did not get bit at all. My girlfriend got bit only a few times. The hotel is light on amenities, which is fine. There was no AC in the room. No pool. I think this is typical of Tulum, and I would much prefer it to the mega resorts in Cancun. I did feel that I overpaid a little, but I think the price is consistent with the rest of Tulum.

Such a nice location and nice hotel. Staff was great. Only issue was the continuous use of a generator near our room - please upgrade to wind or other alternative energy source. We really enjoyed our stay.

Very nice boutique hotel in Tulum/Bocas Pailas

4 out of 5
by from Montevideo, Uruguay
Posted Aug 10, 2015
Pros: View from the room and restaurant, food, location (quiet area of Yucatan Peninsula), cleanness, sand pathways, safety, service.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The hotel is located in a very quiet area. If you like to combine relax with nightlife, I suggest you rent a car and go to Playa del Carmen (40 min)
I stayed at Hip Hotel for 5 days and everything was really great!. Since I arrived the hotel, Pablo (reception) made me feel at home as well as the guys who work in the restaurant (Moises, Andres, Nelly and Sonia). Although the beach had lot of seaweeds, the hotel staff was always cleaning the sand during the mornings. I wish someone could find the main cause of the presence of seaweeds in order to solve the problem and return the turquoise color of Tulum´s waters. The rooms do not have air conditioner. However if you open the windows during the night you can feel the breeze from the sea. The temperature was never below 26 Celsius degrees at night and it was not necessary to have air conditioner to sleep well.
