I was traveling solo and stayed at the penthouse at Gorilla Films residency for a week.
The place is very low key, staying there felt like you visiting at a friends place. Other guys and gals staying there were super nice and helpful. Definitely the place has a sense of community.
Casa Gorila is a truly special place. Thank you so much Alfonso and everyone at Casa Gorila, who made our time in this coastal paradise of the Yucatan so memorable and amazing. This solar powered eco-friendly residence is located right off the most charming stretch of the Maya Riviera, with a sweet beach club across the road and many precious natural and historical sights to check out within walking/biking distance of the house. Alfonso and the other residents were super warm, friendly, and chill, and always ready to point us in the direction of a special wonder -- whether it was the best place to satisfy my ceviche obsession, an off-the-beaten-path jungle Cenote, mural art in the back streets of Tulum, or sweet beach party or art opening town. I was so charmed and inspired by the exchanges I had with residents and people in the scene. This is a fantastic place for people who love the ocean, art, and culture, and are seeking a getaway in harmony with nature. Also, the food in the region is delicious. We really appreciated our living space, which was really clean and comfortable and after a long day out-and-about, we felt so grateful for the daily house-cleaning. So amazing. Thank you so much Alfonso!
Loved staying at Alfonso's artist residency and guest villa. Alfonso and his team are wonderful. They make yummy delicious healthy smoothies and juices in the morning for you and offer great travel tips. It is agreat place to connect with creative minds and interesting people from all over! Perfectly located at one of the best spots on the beach. Very cool accommodations and social area for all the guests on the main floor. Wonderfully located amongst the restaurants, cafes and of course the beach.
We rented the penthouse suit and loved having the private terrace. My only comment is that the room was humid at night, despite the ceiling fan and door open. It didnt have a mosquito net, which would have made sleeping at night a little more comfortable to have the door wide open for better airflow.
It was a true pleasure staying in the Casa Gorila, me and my boyfriend had a fantastic time and I want to go back as soon as I can!
We stayed in the smart room and it was very basic but clean.
Alfonso and his friends were fantastic guides and we got great tips about restaurants, parties and where to go and what to do both before the trip but also as we stayed there.
They are also really inviting and let us join their new years brunch which was awesome with live music and healthy food.
It's a really laidback place with a new cafe where we got a green smoothie and a ginger shot each morning- delicious!!
I would recommend any open minded and easy going traveler to stay here- I will go back for sure!
I had a wonderful stay at Residencia Gorila with my girlfriend. I would stay there again and recommend it. The Smart Room was perfect - clean, comfortable bed, fan, hot shower, balcony. Alfonso was a great host who gave us good tips on where to go. Location is right where you want to be - near good restaurants and beaches.

Can't recommend Residencia Gorila enough - this place gave me hands down the best work+play vacation in the whole year. A consortium of creatives, this place has a one-of-a-kind charm that will likely treat you to spontaneous unforgettable experiences. As a filmmaker, I had comfortable place to edit and had opportunities to collaborate with the others. When I needed breaks I'd walk over to the beach or catch a ride out to cenotes to explore Tulum's breathtaking natural beauty.
The place is a block from the pristine beach in one direction and one block to the beautiful Tulum jungle in another direction. Great vibe, amazing people, and unforgettable setting!
