We had such a wonderful stay at Playa Canek! It was perfect. It's not a super fancy hotel but it had everything we needed and the vibe was perfect for Tulum. Not to mention steps away from the beach and right by all of the restaurants and shops. Check-in was fast and everyone was so nice. My questions were always answered even before arrival. The pictures are exact to what the room and location was. I would stay here again. Adriana Guillen March 2015
Playa Canek is a lovely little slice of paradise. We enjoyed our week here from start to finish, and the hospitality at this hotel was first rate. Many notable restaurants are within a stone's throw and the bartender on the beach at Playa Canek makes one of the best margaritas in Tulum. The burger place adjacent to the hotel is not to be missed--we indulged in delicious and affordable lunches and smoothies on the beach courtesy of its friendly chef. Christy Hutchcraft April 2015
“We had a wonderful stay here. The staff was very helpful and went over and beyond. I also recommend their restaurant for breakfast and lunch. It's very quaint and the food is good. ” Jon Carter Dec 2015
