BE Tulum Hotel
Located in the town of Tulum Mexico, just south of Cancun, this boutique hotel is surrounded by tropical forests on one side and white sand beaches on the other. With twenty rooms, all suites, the hotel is small enough to be quiet, get lost and be attended to. With its location on the Maya Riviera there is something for everyone. You can spend quiet days at nights at the hotel, lounging at the pool or maybe going to the spa, enjoying the pristine beaches or just staying in and getting room service. Once you venture out of the resort, there are Mayan ruins in the town and Cancun is a short drive to the North.
