The room was amazing, but they are under construction on the beach and I feel prices should reflect that. Also the food isn't good.

Stayed at Ikal for a night and definitely coming back! After being in Tulum so many times and staying in different hotels in town, I can assure you this is one of the most unique Tulum hotel experiences you can potentially get. Rooms are carved out of trees, you have your own garden. There is still AC in the room (which rarely happens in Tulum). Staying and hanging out in the room is an experience itself but it's also a very eventful and social hotel. There is always live music, people are super friendly, there is a community feeling. Luckily in my short stay, there was a cacao ceremony I had the chance to join which was amazing! As much as I had nothing to complain about, the hotel may not be for everyone. Rooms are built in a very unique and organic way which means part of your room is in a garden, it's an open-air experience rather than a traditional room feeling. My shower was in the garden for example. If you prefer to have a regular hotel room, you may want to ask for the details of your room before you book.

Construction, mostly unpleasant staff, loud!!!!
First off the GPS pin is incorrect so it took us like an hour and a half to find it as it’s super hard to find and no one knew where it was. We were treated hostile when we first arrived parked and then all the tackled and not even allowed to go to check-in. We were ushered off to the restaurant where the manager came and spoke to us about an event that was going on. We couldn’t check in but we could use the restaurant till 830 and then we had to go back to our room we asked to be able to leave and they wouldn’t let us just cancel the reservation and go somewhere else for the night. After we were ushered back to our room the music from the event was so loud and it kept playing over and over that we couldn’t even be in the room so we tried to go down to the beach even though it was raining and they almost didn’t let us do that we couldn’t go to the pool and when we finally were allowed to go back to the room there was still partying going on till 5:30 in the morning!!! Never knew where the lobby was to go and complain I tried contacting them in the middle of the night did no good. The manager had said she take care of us in the morning but she wasn’t around no one was friendly the next morning or even cared about the fact that we didn’t get to bed until after 530 and then the chainsaw started up at dawn. Yes it is a magical place but it was such a horrible experience that I cannot leave a good review, the room wasn’t even clean because I found another chicks underwear.
