Overall a good stay. Apartment was much larger than expected and very clean upon arrival. Nice balcony and the roof top pool is a nice feature. Its very quiet (when the windows are closed). Barbara was really great and responded well to a few small requests. The condo is a bit out of the way but you can walk to the main strip in Tulum in approximately 15 minutes. You will want a car to get to the beach. Wi-fi worked great. Please note there is no TV even though there is one in the picture so bring lots of books. Improvements include: providing blankets, new cutlery, basic cleaning supplies and more towels. Only two glasses, two coffee cups and no bottle opener on arrival so we had to do some shopping. We got the feeling that the condo owner didn't feel the need to supply much beyond the mere basics so prepare yourself accordingly.
The accommodation mets al expectations. Bárbara is a great hostess and very attentive. Internet connection and wifi are excellent as she stated despite previous comments. Highly recommended.
Nous avons passe 3 nuits chez Barbara, tres sympa. Le logement est conforme aux photos et est tres agreable car dans un ensemble de quelques appartements clots et dans un jardin interieur joli. La piscine n'etait pas en etat de baignade, dommage. Et il manque juste un peu de couverts, et d'un etendoir pour faire secher serviettes de plage ou autre.
L'appartement est un peu excentre et il vaut mieux une voiture de location, surtout pour la plage. Apres des commerces sont accessibles a pied rapidement et les taxis ne sont pas trop chers, donc etant tres au calme, ce qui est appreciable, il est possible de gerer ainsi.
Moon Over Tulum was very nice in appearance from the outside - the pool and lighting and garden area are well kept and clean thanks to the Italian gentleman who takes care of it. However the apartment is very basic, One glass to drink from! The rest were plastic, we commented immediately and were told 'stuff' would be bought, we got nothing and we bought and left our own glasses. Just a sheet on the bed and one pillow each, which is fine for us but others may like the choice to have more pillows or bedlinen. The cooker is located in a bad place just under a wooden shelf with no access to the back rings without hitting the lids off the shelf. Very badly thought out supplies. Barbara didn't meet us on arrival, her Dad did, who is very kind but speaks no English, we didn't know how to use anything or where anything was apart from the location of the apartment, we needed a brush to sweep the floor and had to mime this. Barbara never came to introduce herself, she bumped into my husband by chance. However we did mislay our credit card and she kindly looked for it for us once we left. Moon Over Tulum does have potential but it needs to upgrade the supplies in the apartment, no soft touches at all, no cushions - very basic.The smell in the bathroom is understandable for Mexico but the worst we have experienced in our month and may different places here. The owners need to help Barbara by at least supplying more basic essentials.
The property and the pool are absolutely gorgeous and very well taken care of. It was nice to spend some time relaxing by the pool when we wanted break from going in to town. The location is a little tricky to find. It would be helpful if there was a way to provide a map. Barbara and her husband were very nice and helped us out when we got into a bind in town, for which we are very grateful!
Barbara's condo was great; I think it's even nicer than the pictures suggest. She was also super helpful and replied immediately to all of our messages. We did have some trouble finding the apartment on the first day, but she got back to us right away and even came to pick us up. Great experience overall, and we would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a great stay in this apartment in magical Tulum! Barbara and husband were fantastic! very accommodating making sure we had every thing we needed for our stay and they even offered us the service of picking us up from Cancun airport :) The apartment itself was clean and spacious, the perfect place to rest after a day exploring Tulum! Thanks Barbara!!
I had a totally wonderful time staying at Moon Over Tulum Apartments.
From start to finish Barbara was swift to answer my questions and provide assistance whenever I needed.
I booked 3 apartments for my family group which gave us proximity to each other, but also some privacy.
The apartments are basic but comfortable; the water was always hot, the kitchens were had everything we needed to make some meals with local produce we picked up in town and at the useful tienda next door. I enjoyed fruit liquardos every day using the blender!
The air-conditioning and fans made the apartment nice and cool at nighttime and the beds were comfortable, I slept well every night.
Although there were screens, somehow the mozzies got in but were dealt with by burning some raid incense coils.
The apartment was difficult to find - there are no road name signs, so it's worth discussing with Barbara how you are going to arrive at the apartment.
I'm a keen cyclist, but found the distance to the beach (short as the crow flies) was prohibitive to do every day, however Barbara rents out bikes at a better deal than the rental shop, very handy for quicker trips into town.
The pool was lovely, but for a few days was very cloudy due to some kind of algal bloom, I was impressed with how an expert was brought in and the problem tackled, and the water went back to sparkly and clear.
The internet worked most of the time, allowing us to get on with work and post lost of pictures on (website hidden) for our friends at home to be jealous about.
We felt secure at all times in the apartments and in Tulum generally. People were incredibly friendly and fun, it was my first trip to Mexico and I can't wait to go back.
Barbara's Dad also kindly offered a good deal for a pick up and drop off of one of our group to and from the airport.
I'd like to thank Barbara and her family for a great stay she was a friendly and attentive host.
Pros- Barbara is very pleasant and extremely patient in communicating any of your questions with supreme quickness
- apt is very spacious for a party of four with very high ceilings, one king bed in one room and two seperate twin beds in second room- both with individual bathrooms....
Cons- on the very end of tulum town (on hwy 307). So it's a solid 5-10 min walk to heart of town and a 10 min drive to tulum beach.
- noisy block with dogs barking during the night and roosters crowing as the sun rises. So ear plugs advised if u are a light sleeper-
- the above noise would be better blocked out with the windows closed, but then with a warm night you'd have to turn on the powerful AC they have in each room- only problem is, is that there are no blankets. Just top sheets. No bueno
Never like leaving negatives and hurting anyone's way of making an income. But as responsible air bnbers we must share this with the rest of you like wed hope you'd share these details with us. And hopefully the owners make an improvement from the feedback :/
Clean, spacious apartment in Tulum, a short drive from the main street and several cenotes.
Barbara was a very responsive host before and during our stay and check-in/out went smoothly.
really professional and serious
