My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel is beautiful and located away from the main bars so not too noisy, however still in walking distance to the nearest busy area. David and Carla who work there were both extremely welcoming, professional and very helpful. We stayed in one of the top floor villas with a view out to sea which was absolutely perfect. I will never forget the sight and sound of the waves lapping up against the shore in the evening! It was a special stay for us and David and Carla ensured that everything we had planned went smoothly! All the staff are professional and tentative, and it really is an exceptional place to stay and fully relax. Make sure to try the shrimp tacos at the hotel - absolutely delicious! If you want a memorable stay, in a beautiful location then I would highly recommend this hotel.

Alaya is perfection!!
My solo trip was nothing short of perfection! Alaya is always my go-to hotel in Tulum for its ideal location and sophisticated simplicity and beauty and attention to detail - from fresh water jugs in the room to kopal burning throughout the footprint - to the artful toiletry displays to the extraordinary/attentive service staff (Fernando in the kitchen is the best). Every need was met efficiently and quickly. My morning yoga in the upstairs shala was the perfect way to start the day along with daily coffee service delivered to my garden patio. The unexpected invitation to the wine painting class was one of the many highlights. I can't sing Alaya's praises loudly enough!!!

Quite possibly the most beautiful and relaxing stay I’ve ever experienced. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a stay that is reflective of the natural beauty and environment of Tulum and not the all-inclusive resort side. Also the opportunity to see baby sea turtles climb the shore past my room at night is a memory I’ll have forever.
